Rose Rock/The Barite Rose

Precious and Semi-Precious Stones play a significant role in my life, mainly because they are from the Creator. While on vacation this summer in Oklahoma, I heard about the Rose Rocks. I could not rest until I had seen one.  I was in amazement when I saw the Rose Rock for the first time.  Joseph G. Stine and Nancy A. Stine wrote a book entitled, "The Rose Rock of Oklahoma" which gives information on this beautiful rock formed in the earth into the shape of a rose.  They are reddish because of the iron oxide in the sand.  According to the Joe and Nancy Stine the Barite Rose of Oklahoma can be found in a narrow vertical strip in the center of the state running North and South.  The primary source is in Noble, Oklahoma, East of Norman, Oklahoma. I am pleased to say that my fiancĂ© and I went digging for Rose Rock in the location mentioned, even though it was over 100 degrees, we were very successful in obtaining an ample amount of fully formed Rose Rocks.  

In the 1800s orders were given to remove the Cherokees and other Native Americans from Georgia to Oklahoma. Years later, this journey was called, "The Trail of Tears."

Thousands died on the way, and it is said that as the blood of the men and tears of the women fell upon the ground, the Rose Rocks were formed.  This of course is said to be a myth.

Dr. David London ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics Sarkey Energy Center 810 can also provide information on the history, geology, the age of the rock, and can tell you why they grow in Oklahoma.

I left Oklahoma with love for the State Rock, the Rose Rock. I have as much love for the Rose Rock as I do for the Precious and Semi-Precious Stones; they are gifts from God.  There is so much in the world to love and it keeps expanding.

Please check out the Rose Rocks!  They are awesome.

Clear Quartz & Turquoise/Clear Quartz & Blk Onyx

  • Clear Quartz, a very powerful stone, which helps to bring balanced energy to your being. Clear Quartz stones are found all over the world.
  • Turquoise promotes spiritual enlightenment, and it is said to help loosen tight body joints. Turquoise Stones are found in the Afghanistan, Arabia, China, Egypt, France, Iran, Mexico, and United States.

It is my goal to point out that the stones have been around a long time, even during Biblical times and before; Kings and prophets used them in their daily lives. Queen of Sheba gifted Solomon with precious stones. How interesting is that?

1 Kings 10:1-2 And when the Queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to prove him with hard questions. And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.

These two necklaces above are more than ornaments; they are precious and semi-precious stones, designed by Rev. Corine K. Scott

In The Garden of Eden There Were Precious Stones

Ezekiel 28:11-14

11 The word of the LORD came to me: 12 "Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: This is what the Sovereign LORD says: You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite (Peridot), onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.
14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub (angel), for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery (powerful) stones.

Many people are not aware that the Precious Stones are not costume jewelry.

Isaiah 54, Sapphires and Jasper

Isaiah 54
10 For the mountains shall be moved, and the hills shall tremble; but my mercy shall not depart from you, and the covenant of my peace shall not be moved: said the Lord that has mercy on you. 11 O poor little one, tossed with tempest, without all comfort, behold I will lay your stones in order, and will lay your foundations with sapphires, 12 and I will make your bulwarks of jasper: and your gates of graven stones, and all your borders of desirable stones. 13 All your children shall be taught of the Lord: and great shall be the peace of your children. 14 And you shall be founded in justice: depart far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. 15 Behold, an inhabitant shall come, who was not with me, he that was a stranger to you before, shall be joined to you. 16 Behold, I have created the smith that blows the coals in the fire, and brings forth an instrument for his work, and I have created the killer to destroy. 17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper: and every tongue that resists you in judgment, you shall condemn. This is the inheritance of the servants of the Lord, and their justice with me, says the Lord.

SAPPHIRE is known as a wisdom stone.

JASPER is know as a "supreme Nurturer," and a protective stone.
