Mustika pearls from the same plant or animal may differ slightly or even greatly in form, size, color, etc. The photographs in the list are just samples as stated above. Each without exception, have their own elemental spirit-intelligence dwelling in them--this is one of the factors that distinguish them from ordinary cut/tumbled stones. Fossilized "pearls" differ from the regular mustika-pearls--most of these do not have elemental-spirits dwelling in them, but then again, some of them do; we include them in our list as they are akin to mustika-pearls and have magickal power within them.
Magickal Mustika Pearls correspond and belong to one of the seven rays, chakra, Rune, planetary sign, zodiacal sign, tarot trump, God/Goddess (of the wiccan paradigm), archangel, angelic order, element and to one of the sephiroth of the Kaballistic Tree of life--the association of the pearls to these are given in the pearl list (more correspondences/attributions may be added at a later date); ommissions may allude to the individualistic character of the pearls that are different one from the others of a given type. Their attributions are the result of our own understanding, contemplation and meditation, and may not conform to the traditional correspondence of say, a planet with a sephira.
Information regarding these principles (seven rays, chakras, elements, etc.) may be found in various websites--we will in time compile a paper on the subject. Should you lack the power of a certain aspect of a principle such as a particular ray, a particular element, etc, wearing or using the appropriate mustika pearl can help awaken, increase and accentuate the required power--knowledge of these correspondences as related to pearls are especially helpful in empowering shamanic and magickal rites. Additionally, each one of the animal pearls are the physical representation of their respective animal totem. Every one of the flora pearls represent their deva-manu. Information on the correspondences of the pearls to these principles are appearing here at our site and online for the first time--the information provided are protected by copyright laws and are only relevant to the mustika pearls. The correspondences/attributions are given in the individual listings of the animals, creatures, trees, etc. They may also be viewed in this table.
