CLG EXCLUSIVE: Stunning SHUNGITE Elephant Hand Carved // Maternal, Matriarchy, Matriarch, Protection, Family
We only work with small family miners/carvers who respect fair trade practices - even if they are not certified. We believe that when the miners and artisans who are responsible for bringing our crystals to us are treated fairly, given safety gear, provided with benefits, and their families are cared for, our crystals’ vibrations are even higher, the energy purer and more potent. We go above and beyond to bring you the highest quality crystals that make the best impact on families around the world. Your purchases of ethical crystals helps to support these families and honor their gifts to us.
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) Shungite carved elephant. Each piece is hand carved from a solid piece of shungite (not formed from a mold as many on the market are!). These pieces measure approximately 2.5inches in length.
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.
