The Rock Guide
Märta Larsson designs are forever inspired by the stones Mother Nature gives us. Each stone that she uses in her designs are not just chosen for their aesthetics, but also for the unique properties they gift the wearer. In order to better understand what each stone can deliver to you, we have created this handy guide.
Named after the stylish dog, this chic stone encourages a sense of playfulness in your life and brings a grounding, calming energy that supports both family and loyality. The perfect tonic for these turbulant times.
Malachite, despite sounding like an evil witch from Wicked, is one of the most important minerals to protect you from negative energies. Its your force field of positivity, blocking out negativity from whatever angle it attacks you from. If you suffer from self-confidence, it boosts that too - and not just because we will use the stone in our jewellery to make you look completely fabulous!
No, Not the German author of Faust, but the stone that is described as “one with the earth” . This stone will help connect you with Ol’ Mother Earth!
It is also known to help ground and express your creativity, and the finest proof of this is that Goethite was part of the pigments used to create the famous Caves of Lascaux paintings in France! Good enough for trendsetting Cavemen? Good enough for us!
Pyrite…aka ‘Fool’s Gold’, but your no fool for falling in love Pyrite!
Since the mysterious and ancient Inca’s used Pyrite for meditiation and divination, it has long been seen also as a powerful protection stone, acting as a shiny gold shield against everything from bad energy and negative emotions to even Donald Trump. Pyrite. Not for fools, but there to protect you from them.
Don’t worry! Don’t panic! Amethyst is a natural tranquilliser but it wont cause you to fall asleep on the stranger next to you while you ride the Metro, or cause you to fall asleep while working heavy duty machinery. It will however, cause you to chill the funk out when you need it during stressful life moments. Forget the CBD Vape, forget the triple gin or that Erik Satie Spotify playlist, Amethyst will be your new instant chill mode enabler.
Galena. Your new must have for getting through the stresses of modern life.
When life is hectic, you often need something to ground you. For some thats a night in with a boxset or Netflix but for us its wearing the Galena - the ultimate stablising stone.
Stimulating and balancing your energy, it can remove emotional blocks that even a good Gin & Tonic can’t touch. Infusing you with a strong ‘can do’ attitude, the Galena can balance any confusion, conflict or overworked emotuions that might be dominating your life. Wisdom, enlightmenment and the ability to convert negative energies to useful and uplifting energies are also a few of the side perks that come with it. Sounds good? Give it a try!
One of our personal favourites - not just to look at and admire, but its name is a personal favourite to yodel very loudly after a few drinks. Chrysocolla is known as a key stone for spontaneity…so pop this on and wait for that unexpected text asking you out for a wild night that you’ll never forget.
Slay and say goodbye to fear and doubt by wearing Black Tourmaline!
Increase your inspiration, self confidence and prosperity without the need of a dodgy Yoga teacher, a $200 pill or an online diploma by wearing one of our Black Tourmaline designs.
Quartz is used in oscillators, watches,sandblasting…and now its being used to make you look even more jaw dropping! One of the most well known and loved minerals on earth, it is also arguably the most powerful of all the healing stones, amplifying any energy or intention…sounds cool!
Cats are cool, but you don’t have to endure the smell of cat litter to gain unconditional love round the clock. Enter the Blush Quartz….carrying with it a soft feminine energy of compassion, peace, tenderness and healing - its kind of like a rock version of Gandhi…if Gandhi was feminine…and a rock. Blush Quartz is most famous however for its comforting powers, so whatever curveballs life throws at you, shield yourself with this nourishing gem.
Like Mick Jagger with supermodels, Green Fluorite is one of the most collected Stones in the world. Known as “The Genius Stone” you too can buy your genius by adding this little beauty to your wardrobe.
Let it purple rain all over you with the powerful Purple Flourite!
Do you sometimes wish you could cheat in Life? Get some lifehacks that actually work? Yeah…us too. Sometimes we want to improve ourselves - learning new skills or to simply become more creative. Instead of attending a boring night course or paying to download an app that never loads, may we introduce you to the ‘Genuis Stone’…Purple Flourite!
Representing the highest state of mental achievement (hence the ‘Genius’ part) Purple Flourite has inherant properties that boosts aptitude & discernment and boosts absorption of new information and helps with working through complex issues….pretty useful right? Purple Fluorites achieves this by stimulating the electrical charge of your brains cells, and drawing in more Prana (your life force) - meaning that both your hempispheres are working together in full balance….all together making you a better, balanced, more focused and absorbing person…oh, and on top of that is stunning to look at. You don’t need to be a genius to see why we love Purple Flourite!
All gold everything!
French playwright Moliere famously said ‘Gold makes the ugly beautiful’ but as we all know, Marta Larsson customers are already perfect 10’s…so imagine how hotter you’ll be wearing Yellow Fluorite aka Golden Fluroite!
Not content with just improving your physicals, Yellow Flourite is also a crystal of unity, intellect and creativity. Stimulating your Solar Plexus Chakra (now thats a name for a band!) it increases logic, understanding , imagination and resourcefulness.
The mineral is said to help bring ideas and goals into reality through action and intent. To stabilise group energy. To promote a positive outlook on life. To promote love between all that exists….it basically does everything except pay your credit card and taking the bins out.
From Yves Klein to Yves Saint Laurents Majorelle Gardens, a rich royal blue colour has always expressed impeccible style and taste, and here we use it expressed by the queen diva herself, Mother Nature, with her beautiful Lapis Lazuli. Although it sounds like a spell from Harry Potter, it will cast its spell over you, make you look ice cold cool and give you beautiful compassionate qualities to boot. Coming soon!
No, not the pink wine but Rose Quartz. Love, peace and beauty…all qualities that the world needs more of and now thanks to our designs, you too can bring these qualities to your wardrobe with some addition of the beautiful Rose Quartz.
