Good Witches Homestead

Sardonyx History

Sardonyx can be traced back four thousand years to Ancient Egypt. For most of its history, this stone has been used to create cameos and intaglios. In Ancient Rome, women wore sardonyx necklaces with cameos of Venus in hopes of harnessing the power of the goddess of love. It was also common for soldiers to wear sardonyx rings and carvings containing images of Mars, the god of war, into battle as a means of protection. Sardonyx was also a popular stone for Roman seals and signet rings that were used to imprint wax emblems on official documents because hot wax doesn’t stick to this stone.Sardonyx is an agate whose banding is straight and parallel. Much like agate, it is dyed to enhance or change its colors. Dyeing agate was an art practiced by the Romans from early on, but it reached perfection in the 1820s in Oberstein, Germany…

Good Witches Homestead

Crystals have been part of my life for many years now, but when I first started working with them I did not really have a clue as to how the energy really worked.  Over time I have come to realize that every crystal has a very different energy and even if it is the same kind of crystals the energy is always special to the person working with it.  Children love crystals and are fascinated by them as they can feel the vibrations, tumbled stones are good for them to start out with as they have no sharp points,  it is no secret that they are drawn to the perfect crystal for them.

I have used crystals on my grandchildren in an experimental capacity and have always been amazed at the results.

When my granddaughter was born I had the opportunity to have a firsthand experience of the power of…
