Elephants have been revered the world over for their peaceful dignity, immense beauty, and intelligence. In many cultures, elephants have signified the strength in the divine, carrying the energy of maternal patience and matriarchal wisdom. Many cultures have worshipped the elephant, placing them at the center of spiritual ceremony, even anointing and dressing the creatures in flowers and beauty in a show of adoration. Being matriarchal in nature, Elephants often represent the strength of the mother, in the way that Mother is a gentle, calm, and steady presence, and yet can unleash a protective strength to care for her young if needed.
The Wisdom of the Elephant is tremendous; she recognizes her power, uses it intelligently, and is a strong, but compassionate leader. Elephant is social and has always put family first – and working with her power as an animal guide can help us work through what we’re lacking in our own families of origin (inner child healing), and empower us in the families we’ve created in our adulthood. Elephants are powerful spiritual allies, associated with the herb (and essential oil) of Rosemary for memory and mental prowess. She is a gentle reminder of strength; the mother to all who need one.
This listing is for ONE (1) Yellow Aventurine Elephant like those pictured. They measure approximately 4 inches long and 2 inches wide. Please choose from from the dark or light yellow.
ABOUT OUR ARTISANS
We work exclusively with a team of carvers in India who pour their heart and soul into each and every carving. Carvers in India create some of the world’s most incredible stone art – but they are very rarely compensated for it appropriately. Our gemstone carvings partner is working to change that and we are overjoyed to support them! These artisans are paid FAIRLY for their work – a fair wage given for their time and expertise, and supporting them is our top priority. We at the Crystal Lion firmly believe that when the stones are mined ethically and the human artists who work with them are paid fairly, the vibration of your crystal is higher than ever! Each and every purchase of these amazing one of a kind pieces directly supports families in India in every way a family should be supported. THANK YOU for being as excited about these stones and the humans behind them as we are!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered thousands of years in the earth and I cannot guarantee them completely. They are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
