The Merkaba pendant, another of David's creations, is based on the flow of life force energy, also known as Prana energy, through our body. Using the ancient Prana breathing technique enables us to restore the Prana flow through the pineal gland located in the center of our brain. The Merkaba may assist us in establishing a connection with our higher self and thus helping our spiritual growth. A Merkaba pendant can be offered for healing and protection, because it helps us experience unconditional love, thus healing ourselves and others.
There are some stones that are very difficult to polish. Only course grit or medium grit is used for one to three days when Wonderstone, which is a soft rhyolite, is tumbled. This produces nice, rounded stones which show the colors and banding well. Sandstone, calcite, onyx, limestone, glass, and obsidian also fall into the category where there may be veins in the rock that will not polish. Some types of rocks are brittle, which means that they tend to chip instead of getting polished. Other reasons for the stones to remain unpolished are process-related. If the earlier stages are rushed, then scratches are left in the rocks that the later stages cannot recover from. If the tumbler and stones are not cleaned well between stages, then the grit from a previous stage could be scratching the rocks and preventing them from polishing. If you have a mixture of harder stones and softer stones in your tumbler, only the harder stones will take a high luster polish. Best results are achieved when all the rocks in a batch have similar hardness. If a stone breaks during the later stages of tumbling, the sharp edges will scratch the other stones, so get rid of them before the final stages of polishing.
Sellers who use the words 'square cut' or 'Puka chipped' in their description should be given a miss because Puka shells are never chipped or cut.
