Chrysocolla equals balance. This stone deals with inflammation in all situations. Keep it close before surgery or dental work to reduce inflammation and afterward to reduce bleeding and swelling and to promote healing. It is a gorl’s best friend from puberty to menopause as it provides a calming vibration during PMS and helps ease stressful menopausal symptoms. Chrysocolla is beneficial to those who have suffered emotional, verbal, and physical abuse as the copper based mineral envelopes all wounds like a healing salve. Of course, we have for your this amazing stone in our gallery, Beads & Rugs, 626 Broadway, Paducah, KY.

We are struggling from depression and anxiety and we don't even really know it. Covid has done and is still doing a number on our physical, mental, and emotional health. We suggest using black tourmeline and shungite to protect you from the negativity surounding it and the virus itself. I also recommend amethyst and lepidolite for alleviating depression or a feeling of wariness. We have most of these stones and tomorrow Abdul arrives with a load of some stones we have nt had yet.. Come in and let's discuss a plan for your total replenishment tomorrow.. Beads & Rugs, 626 Broadway, Paducah.

The Writings of Abdul Wardak

I Wander

In the quest for a reunion
I let you live as a healer in my heart,
The cure never came...
So I wander.

Surrounded by your thoughts
I climb the mountain of hope,
Sometimes falling, sometimes crawling,
Yet, able to count my steps...
So I wander.

Whirling with wine of desire in hand,
But always with thirsty lips.
Let the dawn be the witness that I wander.

Oh God, watch over my soul,
Guide me to the path of love.
Carry me to nirvana.
It’s ok to wander,
So, I wander

Made for children who want to imitate their warrior father, this adorable antique beaded gun holster could now serve as a cell phone/whatever you want holder. Attention to the beauty in practical objects is always fascinating to me in the Afghan culture. Available in our Etsy shop at http://www.afghantribalarts.etsy.com

He seems uninterested, but he is deeply concerned for us all.

Coronavirus

The rain of terror from the east is pouring upon us
An invisible enemy that does not discriminate
A demon unknown to mankind

A killer which shadows the globe
Circling, looking for helpless prey
This is a destroyer of humanity

In the fear of death, life has taken a different turn
Forced us into solitude
We are cornered sheep waiting to be slaughtered

The world has become the house of horror
Run by a monster
Known as coronavirus COVID-19

The Afghan rings have simplistic allure, but the way the Kuchi tribe presents them for purchase is culturally beautiful to me.
