Top 5 Natural Remedies for Colon Cleansing

Top 5 Natural Remedies for Colon Cleansing Home / Home Remedies / Top 5 Natural Remedies for Colon Cleansing Top 5 Natural Remedies for Colon Cleansing Posted by: sharib in Home Remedies January 17, 2014 20 Comments Nobody can understand better than me as to what can happen if one doesn’t cleanse colon properly! Since few days, I had not been able to understand why I was not feeling my usual self. I was low on energy, had headache off and on, witnessed quite a few types of skin allergies, and was uncomfortable due to bloating and vomiting. Despite visiting the physician and having a whole lot of medicines to cure these unexplained symptoms, I was not able to get comfort. I was good (well, sort of) when I had the medicines given by my doctor but as soon as I stopped them, the same old things happened to me. I was completely at loss! Then, one fine day, I happened to narrate my distress to one of my friends and then she told me what can be the possible reason for my discomfort. It could be my colon which was not getting cleaned properly! Understanding Colon and Why it Needs Extra Cleansing! Colon is one of our body’s very friendly organ- a part of our digestive system which eliminates the wastes and toxins from our body. It also absorbs water and requisite sodium (salt) in order to maintain body’s electrolyte balance. Although, regular bowel movement do flush away all the waste from our bodies, still colon needs to take a major part in eliminating body wastes which it does. However, sometimes it doesn’t function properly as a result of which certain wastes and toxins cling to the walls of our colons. This leads to various health problems including common cold, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, headaches, allergies, indigestion, joint pains, vision problems, loss of memory as well as stress. If we are not attentive to this problem of colon not cleaning properly,

rapid home remedies Home / Home Remedies / Amazing Home Remedies to Lose Belly Fat Amazing Home Remedies to Lose Belly Fat Posted by: Sara in Home Remedies April 17, 2014 63 Comments Every other person on this planet wants to lose belly fat! Yes it is this great an issue. Belly fat not only gives you an ugly look but can be dangerous for your health too. The visceral fat or the fat around your abdomen can lead to diabetes, heart diseases, stroke as well as dementia. When it comes to lose abdominal fat, the right foods are a necessity. They detox your liver and boost your metabolism so that your body can target belly fat. There are numerous fat burning foods and spices that can help you lose your belly fat. Here are some really effective home remedies to lose belly fat with the help of such foods and spices. How to Lose Belly Fat with Natural Remedies 1. Drink Lemon Water to Lose Belly Fat You need to detoxify your liver because a stressed liver cannot metabolize fat effectively and which gets deposited around your waistline. Lemon water excellently increases enzymes that detoxify your liver so that it may carry out its basic functions efficiently. Get this: Lemon- 1 Water (warm preferred)- 1 glass Do this: After you get up in the morning, take the lemon and squeeze out its juice into the water. While warm water is good to make lemon water for fat burning purpose, you can also use water at room temperature. This won’t stop lemon doing its job. Mix well and drink this lemon water on an empty stomach everyday in the morning. Do not eat or drink anything for at least 30 minutes after you have your regular lemon water every morning. 2. Drink Cranberry Juice to Lose Belly Fat Cranberries are a rich source of organic acids like malic acid, citric acid, and quinic acid that function as digestive enzymes. These acids act as emulsifying agents on stubborn fat deposits in your lymphatic system which transports all the waste products that your liver cannot process. Cranberry juice digests these lymphatic wastes and help you reduce fat. So, drink 100 percent cranberry juice (unsweetened) or cran-water. Get this: Unsweetened cranberry juice- 8 oz. Or 1 cup Water- 56 oz. Or 7 cup Do this: In the morning, mix cranberry juice with water to get your day’s supply of cran-water. Have one cup of this cran-water at a time through out the day. You may have a cup each before breakfast and lunch, after dinner, and at other times of the day. You may also make this cran-water just before you have it. Just mix 2 tablespoons of cranberry juice to 7 oz. (a little less than a cup) of plain water. Martin Criminale / CC BY 2.0 3. Have Fish Oil or Fish to Lose Belly Fat Fish oil has omega-3 fatty acids in it. Omega 3 acids such as icosapentaenoic acid, docosahexaenoic acid and linolenic acid help in breaking down fat while reducing fat storage around your waistline. If you can’t take fish oil, have fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids. Do this Have 6 g of fish oil daily. 6 g roughly equals a generously filled tablespoon which is on the verge of overflowing. Alternatively, you may have such fish as salmon or mackerel two times a week. Tuna and halibut are also high on omega-3. 4. Eat Chia Seeds to Lose Belly Fat If you are a vegan and cannot have fish to get your day’s dose of omega 3 fatty acids, you can eat chia seeds that are equally high on omega-3 and are best plant based source of omega 3 acids. However, your body needs to work a little to convert the alpha- linolenic acid in these seeds into DHA or EPA that directly comes from fish oil. Apart from omega 3 acids, chia seeds are good source of antioxidants, calcium, iron and dietary fiber which helps you feel fuller for longer. The diet book, ‘The Aztec Diet’ suggests having 4-8 tbsp (1-2 oz or 30-60 g) of chia seeds during a day to keep you less hungry and prevent you from overeating. However, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds too is a good amount to include in your daily diet Larry Jacobsen / CC BY 2.0 How to eat chia seeds? Add chia seeds to your smoothies, salads and yogurt. Add them to your breakfast cereal. Use chia seeds as a thickening agent for soups and gravies. 5. Have Ginger Tea to Lose Belly fat You know that ginger is a natural digestive aid but did you know that ginger is a thermogenic? Thermogenic agents

home remedies Home / Hair Care / 21 Ways to Prevent Hair Loss! 21 Ways to Prevent Hair Loss! Posted by: Sara in Hair Care, Herbal Remedies, Home Remedies January 6, 2014 54 Comments At last Gentleman, you have noticed the receding hairline on your forehead! And you lovely lady, why are you so worried about your thinning hair? There are a good lot of ways that can stop your hair loss trend and bring back good volume to your “head-crown!” I am going to give away 15 sure-shot ways to prevent hair loss so that you can then work upon your hair growth regime to bring back your crowning glory! But before that take notice of a fact related to your hair loss, it’ll prove helpful to you. Normal Hair Loss- nothing to worry about! We all lose some hair strands each day. So, it’s normal to see some hair coming off your scalp when you brush your hair daily. Normally we lose about 80-100 strands daily due to the end of life cycle of a hair strand. If that’s the matter, you don’t have to worry a lot. Just continue to have a stress-less healthy lifestyle including balanced diet. It’s when you see an abnormal loss of hair that you should start taking measures to stop this. There are many causes of hair loss. You may lose hair due to some hormonal changes, unhealthy lifestyle, junk food devoid of nutritional value, stress, some medication, vitamins deficiency, thyroid problems, menopause etc. Whatever the causes, you should try to eliminate them first and then resort to these home remedies for hair loss. Actual Hair Loss- Get, Set, Go…. Massage, massage and massage… More and more people are adopting regular head massage to cure as well as prevent hair loss. Why is massaging your scalp so important? It increases blood flow to your scalp! When blood flow to the hair follicles increases, it conditions the scalp, and strengthens the hair roots. The warmed up skin during massage opens up the blood vessels that help in greater nutrient intake. Don’t forget that hair is one of the important part of your body that also needs sufficient nutrients to grow and remain strong. Proper conditioning through oil massage also prevent dandruff which is yet another cause of hair loss. Not only this, massaging is relaxing and it relieves you off stress, another cause of hair-loss. When hair massage is so beneficial, why not make it a regular habit of massaging hair twice or thrice a week? It will definitely prevent hair loss and make them healthy and shiny. But what oils to use for head massage? I’ll tell you. Best oils to prevent hair loss These can be categorized into two, in fact, three groups- Herbal Oils, Essential Oils and Carrier Oils (also called base oils). Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils before they can be applied to the skin for massage. That way, while you need to use carrier oils with essential oils, you can use natural herbal oils directly on your scalp for massage. Here’s the list of herbal oils that you can use for head massage in order to prevent hair loss. #1 Coconut Oil Massage Coconut Oil is perhaps the best oil for preventing hair loss. This oil is used extensively in India and no one can doubt the quality of hair that Indian women possess. Coconut oil acts as sealant by preventing hair from losing its moisture. Apart from the fine nutrition that it provides to your hair, the lauric acid in coconut oil has antibacterial properties that keep away your scalp from infections. #2 Olive Oil Massage Olive Oil is rich in antioxidants and thus provide great nourishment to your hair. It also penetrates hair shafts better and prevent them from narrowing down by controlling the hormone called DTH. The extra virgin olive oil is best one when it comes to hair loss as it is rich in vitamin E and mono unsaturated fatty acids that not only prevents hair loss but also promotes hair growth. #3 Almond Oil Massage Almond Oil is perhaps the most nutritious oil with its rich contents that include Vitamins E, D, iron, magnesium, calcium, and fats. In fact, almond oil can also be used carrier oil when applying essential oils to the scalp. It gets absorbed slowly and deeply into the hair which makes it a perfect base for essential oils. This way you can get benefits of both- herbal as well as essential oil! Now, it’s the turn to know the essential oils that are best for preventing hair loss. lavender, cedarwood, thyme and rosemary #4 Lavender Oil Massage Lavender Oil with its wonderful fragrance is beneficial for preventing hair loss due to its antioxidant nutrients as well as antifungul and antiseptic properties. This oil derived from lavender flowers treats dandruff as well as itching, controls hair breakage all to prevent hair loss. It deeply conditions the hair and also controls dandruff. Lavender oil is widely used to treat alopecia areata too. Alopecia areata is a condition when excessive hair is lost and that too in patches. In such extreme cases daily massage with lavender oil is required. Jojoba and grapeseed oils can be used as base or carrier oil for any essential oil including lavender. cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Kerala Tourism #5 Rosemary Oil Massage Rosemary Oil, obtained from rosemary leaves, is yet another essential oil used to prevent hair loss even for acute alopecia areta condition. This oil stimulates the hair roots and increases blood circulation in the scalp leading to hair growth too. Jojoba oil, grapeseed oil as well almond oil prove to be great carrier oils for rosemary oil. So mix it with one of any carrier oils and massage your scalp daily or weekly as per your hair loss status! #6 Geranium Oil Massage Geranium Oil, extracted from plant’s leaves and stalks is good for both dry and oily hair. It basically works on the sebaceous glands on your scalp and helps in regulating the secretion of sebum. This in turn strengthens hair while making them smooth and silky. Carrier oils are same as for other essential oils- jojoba, grapeseed, almond or coconut oil. #7 Super-Tip for Hair Loss… This is something you’ll love to massage your hair with. This is a lotion prepared with a variety of essential oils. First, I’ll tell you how to make this lotion for hair loss prevention and then how to use it. You’ll need the following ingredients in the exact measure as written below: Rosewater- 50 ml Distilled water- 50 ml Apple cider vinegar- 15 ml Rosemary Oil- 5 drops Jojoba Oil- 6 drops

HEALTH BENEFITS OF GREEN LEA... by Soledad Ignacio

HEALTH BENEFITS OF GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES Leafy vegetables are ideal for weight management as they are typically low in calories. They are useful inreducing the risk of cancer and heart disease since they are low in fat, high in dietary fiber, and rich in folic acid, vitamin C, potassium and magnesium, as well as containing a host of phytochemicals, such as lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene. One study showed that an increment of one daily serving of green leafy vegetables, lowered the risk of cardiovascular disease by 11 percent. In the Adventist health study, the frequent consumption of green salads by African-Americans was associated with a substantially lower risk of mortality. Because of their high magnesium content and low glycemic index, green leafy vegetables are alsovaluable for persons with type 2 diabetes. An increase of 1 serving/day of green leafy vegetables was associated with a 9 percent

Healing Foods For Your Health

  Healing Foods For Your Health  The 10 Best Antioxidant-Rich Foods To Add To Your Diet When it comes to antioxidants, most of us know what they do for our health, as they help our body kill bacteria and fight free radicals that damage healthy cells and our DNA. Without antioxidants in our diet, we increase our susceptibility to cancer cells and premature aging. Although we’ve heard through the grapevine several fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of antioxidants, we’re often unsure of what they are and why they do our body good. To put our antioxidant worries to rest, let’s look at the 10 best antioxidant-rich foods ranked by Aashpazi.com. The best way to consume antioxidant foods is to include them in our daily diet. These foods tend to be nutrient-dense and have other health benefits. A rule of thumb when it comes to antioxidants is to “eat the rainbow.” When you think antioxidants, think “ACE.” Vitamins A, C, and E are some of the best sources of antioxidants, Carissa Bealert, registered dietician nutritionist and certified personal trainer, told Medical Daily. “Berries in general are very high in antioxidants, but other foods you might not think of like kidney beans, red beans, artichokes, and the humble Russet potato are excellent sources too,” she said. 1. PRUNES The deep taste and sticky, chewy texture of this dried fruit is high in antioxidants, as it is considered a cancer protector and a good source of vitamins. Prunes can effectively lower your cholesterol and boost your bone health. Eating a one-quarter cup serving of prunes, or four prunes, according to the United States Department of Agriculture, will provide you with 12 percent of the daily value for fiber, 32 percent of DV for vitamin K, and nine percent of the DV for potassium. 2.

HEALTHY HERBAL TEA

  HEALTHY HERBAL TEA There’s nothing nicer on a cold midwinter’s day than a soothing cup of herbal tea. But besides being a tasty, warming, caffeine-free pick-me-up, herbal tea has lots of wonderful health benefits. From soothing a troubled tummy to easing insomnia and calming a troubled mind, herbs have all sorts of healing powers. Drinking herbal tea can also be a great source of vitamins and minerals. What is herbal tea? Herbal tea isn’t really made from tea’which is a specific kind of plant. The French use the wordtisane, which is a little more accurate, since herbal tea is really just an infusion of leaves, seeds, roots or bark, extracted in hot water. In drinking a well-steeped herbal tea, we get all the plant’s benefits in an easily digestible form. The benefits of herbal tea ‘In a lot of ways, we might get more benefit from a good organic tea than from a vitamin pill,’ says herbalist Marianne Beacon of Elderberry Herbals in Peterborough, Ont. “You’re getting the benefits of hydration. There’s the social element: Tea is something that you can share with people. And when you’re drinking herbal tea, you get aromatherapy at the same time’and that’s something you don’t get from a tablet!’ That’s why Toronto-based herbalist Marcia Dixon says herbal tea should always be steeped in a covered vessel to contain the beneficial essential oils. ‘Otherwise, your room smells nice but you aren’t retaining the medicinal properties.’

Song of the Heart

  How to massage your baby Getting Started   Daily infant massage is a great way to bond with baby. What's more, researchers are finding that massage may promote better sleeping, relieve colic, and perhaps even enhance an infant's immune system, motor skills, and intellectual development. Here are some tips and techniques to help you along. Use a blanket or towel, and massage oil in a non-breakable container. (Test the oil on a small spot of your baby's skin and wait a day to be sure no irritation appears.) Start when your baby is in a quiet yet alert state -- not immediately after a feeding or when she's sleepy. Sit on the floor with the soles of your feet together, forming a diamond shape with your legs. Drape the blanket over your feet and between your knee. Undress your baby down to her diaper and place her on the blanket, cradling her head on your feet. Start with a gentle "hello" stroke from baby's head to her toes. If baby stiffens, cries, or becomes irritable, move to another body part or simply end the massage for the day. If she responds well, start gently massaging her body section by section. Tummy 1. Hold your hand so your pinky's edge can move like a paddle across your baby's belly. Starting at the base of the rib cage, stroke down with one hand, then the other, in a paddle-wheel-like motion. 2. Massage her abdomen with your fingertips in a circular, clockwise motion. 3. Do the "I Love U" stroke: Trace the letter I down your baby's left side. Then trace an inverted L, stroking across the belly along the base of her ribs from her right side to her left and down. Trace an inverted U, stroking from low on the baby's right side, up and around the navel, and down the left side. 4. Walk your fingers around her navel, clockwise. 5. Hold knees and feet together and gently press knees up toward her abdomen. Rotate baby's hips around a few times to the right. (This often helps expel gas.) 6. Place hand on tummy horizontally and rock your hand from side to side a few times. Note: Avoid massaging tummy if the cord hasn't completely healed. Head and Face 1. Cradling your baby's head in both hands, massage the scalp with your fingertips, as if you're shampooing. (Avoid the fontanel, the soft spot on top of baby's head.) 2. Massage her ears between your thumb and index finger.

THE PURPOSE OF LIFE by Soledad Ignacio

  THE PURPOSE OF LIFE Why were you born? We all hope that our lives have meaning, though most are still searching for the purpose of life. What does God intend for us? Why were you born? What is the purpose of life? Many of us keep ourselves so busy between work, chores and our leisure activities that there’s really little time to think deep thoughts about the meaning of life. But occasionally, somewhere in the back of our minds, we have a nagging feeling that there must be something more. There must be a purpose for our lives—something we were meant to be or accomplish. Thoughts like these can come to our minds at those emotionally charged transition periods of our life: when we leave home, get our first job, get married, have children, have an empty nest or retire. Even more, questions about the purpose of life come when we lose a loved one or friend. Being reminded of our own mortality can lead us to analyze our lives and seek deeper meaning to it all. It’s the most important philosophical question; yet at the same time, it is deeply practical. Knowing our purpose gives direction to our lives. A life full of purpose is a life of vitality, excitement and ultimately success. So what is the purpose of life—of your life? A grand experiment Is the purpose of life to pursue happiness—through comedy, music and other entertainment? Through mood-altering substances? Through enjoying fine food and other perks of the rich and famous?

10 Motivational Tips to Keep ... by Glory 4 Us All

10 Motivational Tips to Keep You Healthy   FROM THE WEBMD ARCHIVES  Find yourself losing interest in exercising and eating a healthy diet? Maybe you were gung ho for a few weeks and then your get-in-shape determination quickly faded -- and you went back to your old, bad health habits. What if instead of making mega-changes with the all-or-nothing approach to weight loss and good health, you resolve to tackle a few simple changes at a time? Studies show that the health and weight loss habits that have the best chance of lasting are the ones that call for minor, doable changes. According to Penny Kris-Etherton, PhD, a nutrition professor at Penn State University, the key is to take small, positive steps and move ahead consistently. "People need to be realistic about the changes they can achieve." Consider the following ten motivational tips to help you make small, positive steps each day. 1. Feel Good About Yourself Today Be sure the people around you make you feel good about you -- no matter what your size or health condition. In addition, if close friends encourage you to smoke, overeat, or drink too much, find some new friends who have good health habits and also want a healthier you. Elaine Magee, MPH, Rd, author of more than 20 books, says don't get hung up on pounds or what size dress you are wearing. "Instead, focus on being healthy from the inside out," Magee says. "Eat well, and exercise regularly. And remember that you can be sexy and look and feel fabulous and not be thin." 2. Rethink Your Role Model Barbie's

What Do You Want to Know Abou... by Glory 4 Us All

What Do You Want to Know About Beauty & Skin Care?   Physical beauty is subjective or personal. That is, as the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There is no right or wrong answer. When it comes to your skin, having healthy and beautiful skin means many things: You like what you see in the mirror. You try to take good care of your skin. For example, you try not to expose yourself to unnecessary risks, such as the UV radiation in tanning beds and the chemical toxins in tobacco.

How to Be Successful in Life Three Parts:Achieve External SuccessAchieve Internal SuccessPut yourself in Right EnvironmentCommunity Q&A Regardless of how old you are, where you live, or what your career goals are, more than likely your ultimate goals in life are to be happy and successful. Read this article to learn how to achieve success in both your external life (i.e. your circumstances) and internal life (i.e. emotional well being).   Part1 Achieve External Success 1 Identify your passions. Before you can achieve success, you will have to define what success means to you. While it may take years to realize what you want to do with your life, identifying your current passions, interests, and values will help you set goals and give your life a sense of meaning. Ask yourself the following questions: What do you want your legacy to be? How would you like to be remembered by others? How do you want to make your community a better place? What are some favorite subjects of interest in your life? 2 Make a list of your goals, and what you might do to achieve them. Be sure to address both short-term and long-term goals; try to think beyond financial/career goals. Consider which subjects you enjoyed studying in school, and why. This can help give you an idea of what you may be best at or more interested in. 3 Live purposefully. In order to achieve your dreams and be the person you want to be, you will have to start paying attention to your actions. Ask yourself, "Is what I'm doing going to lead me to where I want to be in life?" If you find yourself constantly bored, daydreaming about the future or past or counting down the minutes until the day ends, it is probably because you feel disconnected from what you're doing. Consider changing careers or majors to a field that you care about, but remember such a move could have unexpected consequences. Does the job you are considering pay enough to support yourself? Is it something you might get bored with eventually? Do you really want to commit to that job? Cherish your time. Try to spend your free time doing things that you enjoy doing, rather than wasting time. For example, rather than spending your weekends watching television, spend them partaking in your hobbies or spending time with loved ones and new friends. Remember that the concept of "wasted time" is relative. Not everything you do has to be productive in the conventional sense, but activities should be engaging and enjoyable. 4 Be educated. Education gives you the knowledge, skills, and credibility to achieve your maximum potential. In terms of financial success, statistics have shown that the more education you have (i.e. the higher degree you achieve), the more money you are likely to make. In 2011, the median weekly earnings for high school graduates was $638 while those with bachelor's degrees made $1053. That same year, those with masters or doctoral degrees made $1263 and $1551 respectively. Not all education has to be formal. Apprenticeships and long-term training programs are also positively correlated with higher incomes. Obtaining a Certificate in your field can help to increase your salary. 5 Manage your finances. Learning how to manage your money will help ensure your financial stability over time, regardless of your income. Keep track of your expenses. Review your bank statements often and notice where you spend your money. If you do your banking online, be sure to keep personal records as well. This will help you prevent over-spending and ensure that your bank statements are correct. Understand your income. When calculating your income, be sure to take into account the federal, state, and social security taxes that will be deducted from your gross pay. Don't overlook miscellaneous deductions, such as health insurance premiums, savings bonds and loan payments. The resulting number is your net pay, which is what you end up taking home with you. Prioritize spending. Your first priority should be spending money on basic necessities like food, shelter, and clothing. Don't spend money on luxuries like expensive clothes, cars, or vacations until you have first satisfied your basic necessities. Be honest with yourself and differentiate between your basic needs and your luxuries. Save money. Every month, you should deposit some of your money into a savings account. Consider asking your employer to directly deposit a portion of your income into your savings account. 6 Manage your time. Putting off important tasks until the last minute can cause you unnecessary stress, and increase the likelihood of errors and negligence. Manage your time so that you have enough time to complete tasks effectively. Use a paper or electronic planner to help keep you organized throughout the day, week, and month. Set reminders on your smart phone and make use of its electronic timer for better time management. Make a list of all the things you need to do in a given day, and check off each task as you complete it. This will help you stay organized and motivated. Part2 Achieve Internal Success

Philippines Chocolate Hills Bohol

The Chocolate Hills are probably Bohol's most famous tourist attraction. They look like giant mole hills, or as some say, women's breasts, and remind us of the hills in a small child's drawing. Most people who first see pictures of this landscape can hardly believe that these hills are not a man-made artifact. However, this idea is quickly abandoned, as the effort would surely surpass the construction of the pyramids in Egypt. The chocolate hills consist of are no less than 1268 hills (some claim this to be the exact number). They are very uniform in shape and mostly between 30 and 50 meters high. They are covered with grass, which, at the end of the dry season, turns chocolate brown. From this color, the hills derive their name. At other times, the hills are green, and the association may be a bit difficult to make.   Enjoy your hot chocolate from this exclusive chocolate hills  mug, USD 14.50. Legend has it that the hills came into existence when two giants threw stones and sand at each other in a fight that lasted for days. When they were finally exhausted, they made friends and left the island, but left behind the mess they made. For the more romantically inclined is the tale of Arogo, a young and very strong giant who fell in love with an ordinary mortal girl called Aloya. After she died, the giant Arogo cried bitterly. His tears then turned into hills, as a lasting proof of his grief. However, up to this day, even geologists have not reached consensus on how they where formed. The most commonly accept theory is that they are the weathered formations of a kind of marine limestone on top of a impermeable layer of clay. If you climb the 214 steps to the top of the observation hill near the complex, you can read this explanation on a bronze plaque. How to get there Plenty of tourist guides and tour operators will be happy to bring you to the chocolate hills, either as a separate trip or as part of a day tour. However, if you want to go here on your own, from Tagbilaran, you will have to go the integrated bus terminal in Dao and catch a bus going to Carmen. If you look like a stranger, you will have a hard time not finding one. At the entrance of the bus terminal people will point you to the right bus. Make sure it is the first one to leave, and ask the driver to drop you off at the Chocolate Hills complex, about 4 kilometers before the town of Carmen. From there it is a 10 minute walk along a road winding up to the complex. To get back to Tagbilaran, you will have to walk back to the main road, and wait for a bus to pass by. The last bus from Carmen to Tagbilaran leaves at four P.M. Alternatively, you can use the services of the motorcyclists who often wait here for tourist, and ride 'habal-habal,' or motorbike taxi. If you're coming from Tubigon (arriving from Cebu by boat), a few buses go to Carmen daily, but sometimes you'll have to wait for some time for the bus to fill up. When you arrive in Carmen, you can catch the next bus or jeepney in the direction of Bilar, Loay or Tagbilaran, or ask a 'habal-habal' driver to bring you to the Chocolate Hills Complex. Where to stay If you would like to stay in the Chocolate Hills, you have very little choice. The only facility is the Government run Chocolate Hills resort. Currently, this hotel is undergoing renovation and extension, but, since funds have run out, work on this is suspended, and you'll have to deal with the mess of a half-completed resort. However, the staff are friendly, and if you stay here overnight, seeing the sun rise over this bizarre landscape is worth the inconvenience. The place also has a still functional and maintained swimming pool, which is behind the unfinished building, a little bit downhill.   Jeroen Hellingman What readers think...

Ten Top Tourist Attractions in the Philippines

Ten Top Tourist Attractions in the Philippines 10 Top Tourist Attractions in the Philippines Last updated on November 7, 2016 in Philippines 33 Comments Located at the very eastern edge of Asia, the Philippines are home to more than 7,000 islands, which are inhabited by friendly locals and many indigenous tribes. From pristine beaches and marvelous natural wonders to interesting historic sites and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, the Philippines pack many exciting things to see and do. Check out the following top tourist attractions in the Philippines. See Also Best Hotels in Boracay Where to Stay in Manila 10Tubbataha Reef flickr/q phia The Tubbataha Reef in the Sulu Sea is a marine sanctuary protected as the Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park. The reef is made up of two atolls, North Atoll and South Atoll, separated by a deep channel of approximately 5 miles (8 km) wide. It has become one of the most popular dive sites in the Philippines because of its coral walls where the shallow coral reef abruptly ends giving way to great depths. The marine park is open to live-aboard diving excursions between the months of April to June when the waves are most calm. 9San Agustin Church, Manila flickr/benjieordonez Located in Manila, a visit to the San Agustin Church is a must see. Built in 1589, this beautiful church has survived seven earthquakes and two fires over the centuries and now remains as the oldest stone church in the Philippines. At the main entrance, there are exquisite carvings on the wooden doors. Inside the lovely, Mexican-influenced interior is designed in the shape of a Latin cross. The gorgeous ceiling was painted in the 1800s by Italian artists, Giovanni Dibella and Cesare Alberoni. Where to Stay in Manila 8Mayon Volcano flickr/Storm Crypt Rising more than 8,000 feet (2,400 meters) above sea level, Mayon Volcano is significant for its perfectly symmetrical cone shape. Visitors can enjoy a number of activities here such as camping, climbing, hiking, bird watching and photography. A picturesque spot in which to admire Mayon Volcano is from the nearby Cagsawa ruins. Mayon is the most active volcano in the Philippines, having erupted over 49 times in the past 400 years. The most destructive eruption of Mayon occurred on February 1, 1814 bombarding the nearby towns with volcanic rocks. The belfry and what is left of the baroque church that was destroyed by the 1814 eruption can still be seen. 7Malapascua Island flickr/Charles Van den Broek A small island made up of quiet fishing villages, Malapascua Island is popular for its ideal diving spots and for being the only place in the world to see thresher sharks on a regular basis as well as manta rays and hammerheads. The other hidden gems here are the beautiful, sandy white beaches, crystal clear waters bordered by coconut trees and colorful coral gardens. Where to Stay in Malapascua Island 6Puerto Galera flickr/Storm Crypt Just south of Manila is the charming coastal town of Puerto Galera, well-favored for its gorgeous beaches, excellent diving spots and wide diversity of marine species. The most popular beaches are White Beach and Sabang Beach, which also offer nearby shopping, dining, nightlife and hotel accommodation. Another popular attraction is the natural harbor of Muelle Bay with its rows of shops, restaurants and bars. Visitors can also go snorkeling to see some of Asia’s best coral reefs or dive among old shipwrecks and hundreds of fish species. Where to Stay in Puerto Galera 5Puerto Princesa Underground River flickr/Storm Crypt Located on the northern coast of the island of Palawa, Puerto Princesa is a nature lover’s paradise. Home to unspoiled landscapes rich in wildlife, this lovely town also lays claim to one of the world’s most unique natural phenomena, an underground river known as the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River. Protected within a national park, this natural wonder is the world’s longest navigable underground river. Guided paddle boat tours show intriguing rock formations and fluttering bats. Where to Stay in Palawan 4Donsol Located in the province of Sorsogon, a place of pristine beaches, stunning waterfalls and unexplored caves, the sleepy fishing village of Donsol is the place in the Philippines to see whale sharks. The ocean’s gentle giants can be seen between November and June, with the numbers peaking between February and May. Tourists can also take a boat cruise along the Donsol River through mangrove and palm trees, and watch the night light up with millions of sparkling fireflies. If that’s not enough, a traditional shrimp-catching expedition with bamboos and nets, followed by a tasty dinner of the cooked catch is also available. Where to Stay in Donsol 3Chocolate Hills One of the top tourist attractions in the Philippines, The Chocolate Hills are unusual geological formations that consists of at least 1,268 individual mounds scattered throughout the interior of the island of Bohol. The almost symmetrical and same-sized formations range from 98 to 164 feet (30 to 50 meters) high and are covered in green grass. During the dry season the grass turns brow, hence the name. There is no consensus on how these giant mole hills were formed. One theory holds that the Chocolate Hills are the weathered rock formations of a kind of marine limestone on top of an impermeable layer of clay. 2Boracay Boracay may be a small island, but it packs great features such as award-winning beaches, beautiful resorts and great adventures like cliff diving, parasailing, motorbiking, horse riding, snorkeling, kite surfing and scuba diving. If that is not enough, boat tours allow visitors to watch stunning sunsets, explore volcanic caves and remote coves of turquoise lagoons. When the sun sets, Boracay night-life pulsates with many bars and restaurants serving food, drinks and fun until dawn. Where to Stay in Boracay 1Banaue Rice Terraces

Faith and Worship

Faith and Worship   Prayers for Advent   Prayers suitable for the season of Advent Advent, anglicized from the Latin word adventus meaning "coming", is a season observed in many Western Christian churches, a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas. It is the beginning of the Western liturgical year and commences on Advent Sunday, called Levavi. Latin adventus is the translation of the Greek word parousia, commonly used in reference to the Second Coming of Christ. For Christians, the season of Advent serves as a reminder both of the original waiting that was done by the Hebrews for the birth of their Messiah as well as the waiting of Christians for Christ's return from Heaven where he now sits at the Right Hand of God.

Special Food for Cats

Special Food for Cats   Urinary problems in cats As a cat owner you are probably aware that urinary stones are a common, and often very painful, condition for cats. ON THIS PAGE: The most common stone Effective struvite stones management i 2 steps Read more → Other types of stones Prevention of new calcium oxalate, urate or cystine stones Read more → Bladder irritation Bladder irritation without bacteria or stones is very common Read more → Urination should not be a problem Urination is a natural part of your cat’s everyday life. It should not cause any problems. Urine is produced in the kidneys, stored in the bladder and runs out of the body through the ”urethra tube”. It carries water, dissolved protein waste and excess minerals. Why do urinary stones form? Urinary stones form if there are more waste elements in the urine than can be dissolved. These are typically magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and protein waste products. The ideal cat food All cat foods contain minerals, proteins and water. To support a healthy urinary tract your cat food should produce maximum nutrition requirements with a minimum amount of protein and mineral wastes for the urine to excrete. Choose the right food for your cat and you can support a healthy urinary system. Food can help to dissolve existing urinary stones and reduce the risk of new ones forming. Different types of stones require different nutritional strategies – read more! Irritation, pain or blockage Signs and causes of urinary problems vary but symptoms may include: Bladder irritation or infection may cause your cat to urinate more often Urinary stones can cause irritation, pain or blockage so the cat has trouble urinating, gets ill or changes their behaviour They may lick their genitals more than usual They may urinate outside the litter box Cats originated from the deserts of North Africa They drink little and only produce a small concentrated amount of urine.

Gemstones by Glory 4 Us All

Gemstones   Brown Diamonds Also known as chocolate, champagne and cognac diamonds   Beautiful Brown Diamonds:Three champagne-colored diamonds from Rio Tinto's Argyle mine in Western Australia clearly demonstrate the beauty of brown diamonds. Image Copyright © 2016Rio Tinto. What Are Brown Diamonds? Although most people think ofdiamondsas colorlessgems, most natural diamonds are brown. De Beers, the company that nearly controlled the diamond industry for almost 100 years, did not want brown diamonds in the gem diamond market. All of the brown diamonds that they mined and acquired were crushed for use as abrasive granules. Because of this brown diamonds had very little value. Then, in the 1980s, Australian miners shipped millions of tiny brown diamonds to India, where low-cost workers cut them into melee-sizegems. The tiny brown stones then entered the market in popular-priced jewelry. Those tiny brown gems opened a new and attractive niche of diamond jewelry. They made diamond jewelry more affordable. Today, brown diamonds are sold under trade names such as "chocolate diamonds," "champagne diamonds," and "cognac diamonds." Clever marketing, fresh designs, and low prices made brown diamonds into marketable products. A Bit of Diamond History In the late 1800s and early 1900s, enormousdiamonddiscoveries in South Africa created a problem. So many diamonds were suddenly available that their free entry into the market would depress prices. De Beers gained nearly complete control of the global diamond supply and released diamonds into the market at a rate that maintained prices. De Beers then stimulated demand through their "A Diamond Is Forever" marketing campaign. Many advertising experts believe that De Beers ran "the most successful ad campaign in the history of marketing." Growing demand and a tight control over supply made a lot of money for De Beers. At that time - and continuing today - many people believe that the standard of diamond beauty and value is a clear, colorless stone. De Beers considered brown diamonds unsuitable for jewelry - but was that really true? Argyle Diamond Jewelry:These pieces from the "Australian Colours" jewelry

GEMSTONES #2

GEMSTONES #2   Opal Pictures Precious, Black, Fire, Boulder, Jelly, Crystal, White Opal   A photographic guide for the large confusion of names that are frequently used to describe opals.  What is Opal? What is Opal?   Gem quality opal is one of the most spectacular gemstones. A single stone can flash every color of the spectrum with an intensity and quality of color that can surpass the "fire" of diamond. The best opals can command prices per carat that rival the most expensive diamonds, rubies and emeralds. They are very popular gems.  Opal is a wonderful stone for earrings, pendants, brooches and rings. However, it is softer than most other gemstones. Opal has a hardness of about 5.5 to 6.0 on the Mohs hardness scale. Because of that opal works best in earrings, brooches and other pieces that rarely encounter skuffs and impacts. When used in a ring the best designs have a bezel that protects the stone - instead of being placed in a prong setting that allows the edges of the stone to be exposed.  Opal is a hydrous silicon dioxide (SiO2.nH2O). It is amorphous, without a crystalline structure, and without a definite chemical composition. Therefore it is a "mineraloid" rather than a "mineral". Play-of-Color and Opalescence   Opal is a very common material that is found throughout the world. Most of this opal is "common opal" or "potch" which has a milky or pearly luster known as "opalescence". However, rare specimens of opal produce brilliant color flashes when turned in the light. These color flashes are known as a "play-of-color". Opal specimens that exhibit a play-of-color are known as "precious opal." If the play-of-color is of high quality and large enough to cut, the material can be used to produce valuable gemstones.  A play-of-color in opal can be observed under three situations: 1) when the stone is moved, 2) when the light source is moved, or, 3) when the angle of observation is changed. The video at right illustrates "play-of-color" in an Ethiopian Welo opal.  What Causes "Play-of-Color"?   Areas within an opal that produce a play-of-color are made up of microscopic spheres of silica arranged in an orderly network. As the light passes through the array spheres it is diffracted into the colors of the spectrum. The size of the spheres and their geometric packing determine the color and quality of diffracted light.  Sources of Opal   Although opal is found throughout the world, almost all of that opal is common opal of very little value. Most of the precious opal deposits that have been discovered are in Australia. The mines of Australia produce at least 90% of the world's precious opal.  Famous mining areas in Australia include: Coober Pedy, Mintabie, Andamooka, Lightning Ridge, Yowah, Koroit, Jundah and Quilpie. Other countries that produce precious and fancy varieties of common opal include: United States, Mexico, Hungary, Indonesia, Brazil, Peru, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Ethiopia.  Wonderful Names Used to Describe Opal   There are many types of opal and a wide variety of names are used to communicate about them. If you have spent a small amount of time looking at opal you have probably been surprised by this extensive vocabulary of wonderful names. There is acually a logic behind names such as fire opal, black opal, jelly opal, boulder opal, matrix opal, Coober Pedy, Mintabie, Andamooka, precious opal, opal doublet, and opal triplet. The stories on this webpage will present that logic and help you see the common sense behind the names. And, since pictures are worth a thousand words we share our favorite opal photos to help you understand. Enjoy!  Contributor: Hobart King   Video of a beautiful Ethiopian Welo opal. The flashes of color that can be seen as the opal moves are a "play of color". The presence of "play of color" makes this a "precious opal". YouTube video by ethiopiaopals.com. Here are a few of the opals described on this page. Click one to learn more. Basic Types of Opal: Precious Opal - Common Opal - Fire Opal Precious Opal "Precious opal" flashes iridescent colors when it is viewed from different angles, when the stone is moved or when the light source is moved. This phenomenon is known as a "play-of-color". Precious opal can flash a number of colors such as bright yellow, orange, green, blue, red or purple. Play-of-color is what makes opal a popular gem. The desirability of precious opal is based upon color intensity, diversity, uniformity, pattern and ability to be seen from any angle.  Precious opal is very rare and found in a limited number of locations worldwide. Most precious opal has been mined in Australia, secondary sources include: Mexico, Brazil, and the United States. Canada, Honduras, Indonesia, Zambia, Guatemala, Poland, Peru, New Zealand and Ethiopia. The black opal on the left was mined at Lighning Ridge, Australia and the white opal on the right was mined at Coober Pedy, Australia..   Common Opal "Common opal" does not exhibit a "play-of-color". It is given the name "common" because it is found in many locations throughout the world. Most specimens of common opal are also "common" in appearance and do not attract commercial attention.  However, some specimens of common opal are attractive, colorful and lustrous. They can be cut into gemstones that accept a high polish. They can be beautiful but simply lack a play-of-color that would earn them the name "precious". Common opal is frequently cut as a gemstone and can command reasonable prices. Shown at right is a honey-colored opal from Mexico and teardrop-shaped stone cut from Peruvian blue opal.   Fire Opal "Fire Opal" is a term used for colorful, transparent to translucent opal that has a bright fire-like background color of yellow, orange or red. It may or may not exhibit a "play-of-color". The color of fire opal can be as vivid as seen in the three stones shown in the photograph at right.  Some people are confused by the term "fire opal". When they hear the word "fire" they immediately think of the flashes of spectral color, known as "fire" that are produced by gem-quality diamond. Or, they think of the flashes of spectral color, known as "play-of-color" that is produced by precious opal. Fire opal might exhibit flashes of color but such a display is usually weak or absent. Fire opal is simply a specimen of opal with a wonderful fire-like background color. The color is what defines the stone.     Opal Names: Based Upon Opal and Host Rock Relationships Solid Opal --- (Type 1 Opal) "Solid opal" is a name used for a rough or cut stone that consists entirely of opal material without any host rock or other significant inclusions contained within the stone. Solid opal can be a combination of precious opal and common opal. The solid opal on the left is a white opal made from material mined at Coober Pedy, Australia. The black opal on the right was made from material mined at Lightning Ridge, Australia. Solid opal is also known as "Type 1 Opal".

GEMSTONES #3   Ruby and Sapphire Ruby and sapphire have the same chemical composition and crystal structure - they are both varieties of the mineral corundum Rubies:The most desired variety of corundum is the ruby. The red color is produced by trace amounts of chromium in the mineral. These two beautiful rubies were mined in Madagascar. The one on the left is a 7 x 5 millimeter octagon that weighs about 1.32 carats. The one on the right is an 8 x 6 millimeter oval that weighs about 1.34 carats. Although Asia has been the traditional source of gem corundum for over one thousand years, Africa is poised to become a new primary source. Ruby, Sapphire, and Fancy Sapphire Most people don't realize that ruby and sapphire are both gems of the mineralcorundum. Both of thesegemshave the same chemical composition and the samemineralstructure. Trace amounts of impurities determine if a gem corundum will be a brilliant red ruby or a beautiful blue sapphire. It is surprising that "impurities" can produce such wonderful results! Red and blue are just two of the many colors found in gem corundums. Trace amounts of other elements can produce brilliant yellow, orange, green, and purple gems. Red corundums are known as "rubies," blue corundums are known as "sapphires," and corundums of any other color are known as "fancy sapphires." Corundum produces gems in a spectrum of colors. Related:Corundum: Mineral Summary What Makes a Ruby? Some gem-quality corundum contains trace amounts of chromium. A very small amount of chromium gives corundum a pink color. Larger amounts ofchromiumincrease the color saturation of the stone and produce a gem with a deeper red color. To be considered a "ruby," a corundum should have a color between orangey red and a slightly purplish red. The most desirable color is a pure vibrant red. Very few specimens of corundum have a natural color within the range required for a ruby. Very few also have the clarity required to produce a nice faceted stone. Long ago, people who preparedgemmaterials for cutting discovered that heating rubies under controlled conditions can intensify their color. Heating can also cause inclusions to become less visible and improve the clarity of a gem. Most rubies in the market today have been heated to improve their color and clarity. Many of them have had other treatments to improve their appearance. These treatments are normal and expected in the gem trade, but a seller should disclose them to a buyer in advance of a sale. Montana sapphire:The most widely known sapphire locality in North America is Yogo Gulch, Montana, famous for producing deep blue sapphires of excellent quality.Creative Commons photoof a gem from Barnes Jewelry, Helena, Montana, by Montanabw. Corundum as ruby, sapphire, and fancy sapphire:Gem-quality corundum is a highly prized and valuable material. When it is bright red in color, it is called "ruby." When it is deep blue, it is called "sapphire." Gem-quality corundum of any other color is called "fancy sapphire." All of the stones in this photo were mined in Africa. What Makes a Sapphire? Trace amounts of iron and titanium can develop a blue color in corundum. Blue corundums are known as "sapphires."

GEMSTONES #4   Emerald The bright green gem of the beryl mineral family. Emeralds from Colombia:Emeralds in a calcite and shale matrix from the Coscuez Mine, Muzo, Colombia. The well-formed crystal with an attractive green color is about 1.1 centimeters tall. Specimen and photo by Arkenstone /www.iRocks.com. What are Emeralds? Emeralds are gem-quality specimens of theberylmineral family with a rich, distinctly green color. They are found inigneous,metamorphic, andsedimentary rocksin a small number of locations worldwide. For over 5000 years, emeralds have been one of the most desirable and valuable coloredgemstones. Ancient civilizations in Africa, Asia, and South America independently discovered emeralds and made them their gemstone of highest esteem. Today emerald, together withruby and sapphire, form the "big three" ofcolored stones. The "big three" generate more economic activity than all other colored stones combined. In 2011 the value of emeralds imported into the United States exceeded the value of rubies and sapphires combined. The value of imported emeralds also exceeded the value of all colored stones outside of the "big three" combined. Emeralds from Russia:Photograph of emerald crystals in mica schist from the Malyshevskoye Mine, Sverdlovsk Region, Southern Ural, Russia. The large crystal is about 21 millimeters in length. Photograph © iStockphoto and Epitavi. Emerald's Green Color Beryl, the mineral of which emerald is a variety, has a chemical composition of Be3Al2(SiO3)6. When pure, beryl is colorless and known as "goshenite." Trace amounts of chromium or vanadium in the mineral cause it to develop a green color. Trace amounts of iron will tint emerald a bluish green or a yellowish green color depending upon its oxidation state. Emerald is defined by its green color. To be an emerald, a specimen must have a distinctly green color that falls in the range from bluish green to green to slightly yellowish green. To be an emerald, the specimen must also have a rich color. Stones with weak saturation or light tone should be called "green beryl." If the beryl's color is greenish blue then it is an "aquamarine." If it is greenish yellow it is "heliodor." This color definition is a source of confusion. Which hue, tone, and saturation combinations are the dividing lines between "green beryl" and "emerald"? Professionals in the gem and jewelry trade disagree on where the lines should be drawn. Some believe that the name "emerald" should be used when chromium is the cause of the green color, and that stones colored by vanadium should be called "green beryl." Calling a stone an "emerald" instead of a "green beryl" has a significant impact upon its price and marketability. This "color confusion" exists within the United States. In some other countries, any beryl with a green color - no matter how light - is called an "emerald." Physical Properties of Emerald Color A distinctly green color that ranges between bluish green and slightly yellowish green. Stones with a light tone or a low saturation should be called "green beryl" instead of emerald. Clarity Almost every natural emerald has eye-visible characteristics that can be inclusions, surface-reaching fractures, or healed fractures. Luster Vitreous Diaphaneity Transparent to translucent Cleavage One direction of imperfect cleavage Durability Emerald is very hard, but almost all specimens have inclusions and surface-reaching fractures that compromise their durability. Mohs Hardness 7.5 to 8 Specific Gravity 2.7 to 2.8 Chemical Composition Be3Al2(SiO3)6 Emerald's green color is caused by trace amounts of chromium or vanadium. Crystal System Hexagonal. Often as prismatic crystals. Use of the Name "Yellow Emerald" By definition, emeralds are gem-quality specimens of the beryl mineral family with a rich, distinctly green color. It is inappropriate to use the name "emerald" when marketing a beryl of any other color. The Federal Trade Commission publishes a set ofGuides for the Jewelry, Precious Metals and Pewter Industries. In the next revision of these guides, they propose language stating that "it is unfair or deceptive to mark or describe a product with an incorrect varietal name." The name "yellow emerald" will be held up as an example of a name that could be misleading "based upon consumer perception evidence."

GEMSTONES#6   Labradorite The plagioclase feldspar with an iridescent play-of-color that is often used as a gemstone. Labradorite: Photograph of labradorite gemstones exhibiting a beautiful labradorescent play of iridescent colors. Photo by Joanna-Palys © iStockphoto. Labradorite:A specimen of labradorite feldspar rough about four inches across exhibiting a beautiful play-of-color. Collected near Nain, Labrador, Canada. What is Labradorite? Labradorite is a feldspar mineral of theplagioclaseseries that is most often found in maficigneous rockssuch asbasalt,gabbro, and norite. It is also found in anorthosite, an igneous rock in which labradorite can be the most abundantmineral. Some specimens of labradorite exhibit a schiller effect, which is a strong play of iridescent blue, green, red, orange, and yellow colors as shown in the photographs. Labradorite is so well known for these spectacular displays of color that the phenomenon is known as "labradorescence." Specimens with the highest quality labradorescence are often selected for use asgemstones. What Causes Labradorescence? Labradorescence is not a display of colors reflected from the surface of a specimen. Instead, light enters the stone, strikes a twinning surface within the stone, and reflects from it. The color seen by the observer is the color of light reflected from that twinning surface. Different twinning surfaces within the stone reflect different colors of light. Light reflecting from different twinning surfaces in various parts of the stone can give the stone a multi-colored appearance. Physical Properties of Labradorite Color Usually clear, white, or gray in reflected light. Labradorescent colors can include blue, green, yellow, orange, and red.

GEMSTONES (7)   Ammolite  An organic gemstone with a spectacular flash of iridescent colors! What is Ammolite?   Gem-quality Ammolite produces a spectacular display of iridescent color when it is observed in reflected light. The colors of an individual stone can run the full range of the visible spectrum or be limited to just one or two colors. The color display can rival fine opal and labradorite in its intensity and beauty. Ammolite is a trade name given to a thin iridescent aragonite shell material that is found on two species of extinct ammonite fossils (Placenticeras meeki and Placenticeras intercalare). Other less-frequently used trade names for Ammolite are "Calcenite" and "Korite." It is also known simply as "ammonite shell."  Ammolite is a rare material. All of the world's commercial production comes from a small area along the St. Mary River in southwestern Alberta, Canada. There, two companies mine Ammolite from thin layers in the Bearpaw Formation where the ammonite fossils are found.  Ammolite Gemstones   The color-producing shell layer of Ammolite is usually very thin (often less than one millimeter) and attached to a dark gray to brown base of shale or siderite. Exceptional pieces can be cut into gems without stabilization.  Most Ammolite is used to produce triplets. These are made by backing the fragile iridescent material with a thin slab for stability and topping it with a transparent cover for protection.  Clear quartz or spinel can be used for the transparent cover. Black shale or another material can be used for the backing. Some Ammolite is made into doublets, which only requires adding a backing or transparent cover as needed. Many stones are impregnated with epoxy

GEMSTONE (8)   Tanzanite Tanzanite is a popular blue gemstone that is only produced commercially in one small area of northern Tanzania. Faceted blue tanzanite: This violetish blue tanzanite is an exceptional faceted oval weighing 8.14 carats and measuring 14.4 x 10.5 x 7.6 millimeters in size. On the basis of its color and clarity, it would be rated in the top 1% of the tanzanite produced by TanzaniteOne Mining Ltd., the leading producer of tanzanite. It is easy to see why Tiffany's called tanzanite "the most beautiful blue stone to be discovered in 2000 years."Stones of this quality might be purchased by museums, investors, or collectors, or used in custom or designer jewelry. Photo copyright by Richland Gemstones and used here with permission. What is Tanzanite? Tanzanite is a trade name that was first used by Tiffany and Company for gem-quality specimens of the mineral zoisite with a blue color. Tiffany could have sold the material under the mineralogical name of "blue zoisite," but they thought the name "tanzanite" would stimulate customer interest and be easier to market. The name "tanzanite" was given because the world's only known tanzanite deposit of commercial importance is in northern Tanzania. The name reflects the gem’s limited geographic origin. The mines are all located in an area of about eight square miles in the Merelani Hills, near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro and the city of Arusha. Although nearly all of the world’s most popular gemstoneshave been known and used for hundreds of years, tanzanite was not discovered in commercial quantities until the 1960s. In the short time since then, it has become the second most popular blue gem after sapphire. It is one of a very small number of gems of any color that have been discovered and brought to strong consumer popularity within the past century. This rapid rise to popularity was accomplished mainly by Tiffany’s promotion and tanzanite’s beautiful blue color. "Tanzanite is the most beautiful blue stone to be discovered in 2000 years."   - Tiffany & Co. Natural blue tanzanite: The pair of crystals shown on the left is the same pair of crystals shown on the right. They have different apparent colors because tanzanite is pleochroic - it appears to be different colors when viewed from different directions.  If we cut a faceted stone from the crystal pair on the right and oriented the cutting so that, in this view, we were looking down onto the top of the table, the stone would have a blue face-up color. If we did the same with the crystal pair on the left, the stone would have a purple face-up color. If the table of the stone were tilted slightly in any direction, an intermediate face-up color would be produced.  This pair of crystals has not been heated by humans. Their colors are natural. It is an example of tanzanite having spectacular natural color. Specimen and photo by Arkenstone / www.iRocks.com. Tanzanite’s Interesting Color The mineral zoisite naturally occurs in a wide range of colors that include colorless, gray, yellow, brown, pink, green, blue, and violet. The name "tanzanite" is used for a color variety of zoisite that ranges from blue to bluish purple to bluish violet. This type of color-variety name is not unusual. The name "ruby" is used for red to slightly purplish red specimens of the mineral corundum; the name "amethyst" is used for purple specimens of the mineral quartz; and, the name "emerald" is used for green specimens of the mineral beryl. Each of these minerals occurs in a wide range of other colors. The discovery of transparent crystals of blue zoisite in the 1960s stimulated interest in the gem. Soon after that discovery, laboratory experiments determined that heating could improve the color of some naturally blue stones. They also determined that heating could convert some naturally brown or green zoisite into beautiful blue zoisite. With those discoveries, there was enough blue zoisite to support a marketing effort that would introduce the gem to millions of people. The blue color of tanzanite is caused by small amounts of vanadium within the zoisite mineral structure. When vanadium-bearing zoisite is heated to a temperature of 600 degrees Celsius for about 30 minutes, the oxidation state of the vanadium is changed and that change causes or improves the blue color. The heat treatment of tanzanite is very mild when compared to what is done for gems such as rubies and sapphires. Those gems are heated to temperatures between 1000 and 1800 degrees Celsius and held at those temperatures for days or weeks. Today, nearly all of the gems being sold as "tanzanite" have a blue color that has been enhanced by heating. This treatment is always to be disclosed by the seller. A small amount of tanzanite in the marketplace has a blue color that was produced naturally through the heat of metamorphism without any treatment by people. This naturally blue, untreated tanzanite is held in very high regard by some gemstone and jewelry buyers who seek it out when making a purchase. Tanzanite colors: The tanzanite gems in these rings show a range of blue color that can be found in tanzanite. Most buyers prefer stones with a strong-to-vivid blue color like the ones in the top row of this image. These stones sell for a much higher price than stones with a lighter color. However, many people prefer the lighter-color gems and gladly pay their lower price. Tanzanite has a range of blue colors that place it in competition with sapphire, blue topaz, and aquamarine.

These pieces date from about 1020-1140 CE and show the typical materials used in the ancient Chacoan bead and inlay industry. Public domain image from the National Park Service. What is Turquoise? Turquoise is an opaquemineralthat occurs in beautiful hues of blue, blue-green, and yellow-green. It has been treasured as agemstonefor thousands of years. Isolated from one another, the ancient people of Africa, Asia, South America and North America independently made turquoise one of their preferred materials for producing gemstones, inlay, and small sculptures. Chemically, turquoise is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminum (CuAl6(PO4)4(OH)8·5H2). Its only important use is in the manufacture of jewelry and ornamental objects. However, in that use it is extremely popular - so popular that the English language uses the word "turquoise" as the name of a blue-green color that matches the stone. Very few minerals have a color that is so well known, so characteristic and impressive that the name of the mineral becomes so commonly used. Only three other minerals -gold,silver, andcopper- have a color that is used in common language more than turquoise. Turquoise cabochons:A diverse collection of turquoise cabochons from various locations. From left to right in the upper row: a greenish blue turquoise cabochon with black matrix from China; a teardrop-shaped, slightly greenish blue turquoise cabochon from Arizona's Sleeping Beauty Mine; and, two sky-blue turquoise cabochons with chocolate brown matrix from the Altyn-Tyube Mine in Kazakhstan. In the center row: a small sky-blue turquoise cabochon from the Kingman Mines in Arizona; and, two small round sky-blue cabochons from the Sleeping Beauty Mine of Arizona. In the bottom row: two small cabochons with black matrix from unknown mines in Nevada; a teardrop-shaped cabochon with slightly greenish blue turquoise in black matrix from the Newlanders Mine in Nevada; and, a rectangular cabochon of slightly greenish blue turquoise in reddish brown matrix from the #8 Mine in Nevada. Turquoise Colors Blue minerals are rare, and that is why turquoise captures attention in the gemstone market. The most desirable color of turquoise is a sky blue or robin's-egg blue. Some people inappropriately describe the color as "Persian blue" after the famous high-quality material mined in the area that is now known as Iraq. Using a geographic name with a gem material should only be done when the material was mined in that locality. After blue, blue-green stones are preferred, with yellowish green material being less desirable. Departure from a nice blue color is caused by small amounts of iron substituting for aluminum in the turquoise structure. The iron imparts a green tint to the turquoise in proportion to its abundance. Turquoise, especially the more porous varieties, can discolor with exposure to prolonged sunlight, heat, cosmetics, perspiration, and body oil. Some turquoise contains inclusions of its host rock (known as matrix) that appear as black or brown spider-webbing or patches within the material. Many cutters try to produce stones that exclude the matrix, but sometimes it is so uniformly or finely distributed through the stone that it cannot be avoided. Some people who purchase turquoise jewelry enjoy seeing the matrix within the stone, but as a general rule, turquoise with heavy matrix is less desirable. Some turquoise localities produce material with a characteristic color and appearance. For example, the Sleeping Beauty Mine is known for its light blue turquoise without matrix. Much of the turquoise from the Kingman Mine is bright blue with a spider web of black matrix. The Morenci Mine produces a lot of dark blue turquoise withpyritein the matrix. Much of the Bisbee turquoise has a bright blue color with a chocolate brown matrix. People who know turquoise can often, but not always, correctly associate a stone with a specific

GEMSTONES (11)   Strontium Titanate A man-made diamond simulant also known as Fabulite, Diagem, Marvelite, Jewelite, and other trade names. Strontium Titanate:A faceted strontium titanate showing its very strong "fire" or "dispersion." Light that enters the stone is separated into its component colors, similar to a prism, and exits the stone in a scintillation of color. This stone is a 6-millimeter round weighing about 1.25 carats. The stone has a slightly purple body color that provides contrast to the dispersion. What is Strontium Titanate? Strontium Titanate is a man-made material with a chemical composition of SrTiO3. It grabbed public attention in the early 1950s as a diamond simulant - a material that has an appearance that is very much likediamondbut has a different composition and/or crystal structure. When cut and polished like a diamond, strontium titanate has a very similar luster, brilliance, and scintillation. However, strontium titanate has a "fire" that greatly exceeds the fire of a diamond. "Fire" is the ability of a gem to act as a prism and separate light passing through it into a rainbow of colors. The fire of strontium titanate is so strong that it immediately surprises the observer. A demonstration of dispersion:White light is separated into its component colors while passing through a prism. The "fire" of faceted stones like diamond and strontium titanate is produced by dispersion. NASA Image. The Rise and Decline of Strontium Titanate The impressive fire of strontium titanate made the stone a rapid success in the jewelry trade. People loved the intense fire and the lower price compared to diamond, and many purchased strontium titanate instead of diamond. Many people bought it just because they loved its appearance. Savvy merchants invented exotic trade names for strontium titanate such as "Fabulite," "Diagem," "Marvelite," "Dynagem," and "Jewelite." The name "strontium titanate" was hard to remember and resembled the name of a "chemical." The trade names inspired a vision of beautiful stones and were easy for consumers to remember. Between the early 1950s and the early 1970s, Fabulite, Diagem, and the other strontium titanate brands were popular sellers. Then, many people who purchased strontium titanate jewelry and wore it regularly began to notice that their stones were showing signs of wear. The facet faces were often scratched, and facet edges were often nicked and chipped. A material with aMohs hardnessof 5.5 does not stand up to wear like diamond with a hardness of 10, or

GEMSTONES (12)   Corundum Corundum has historically been used as an abrasive, but it is most famous as the mineral of ruby and sapphire. Corundum:Two corundum crystal segments from India showing the mineral's hexagonal crystal habit and basal parting. These specimens are red in color and might be called "ruby corundum." Image © iStockphoto / Lissart. What is Corundum? Corundum is a rock-formingmineralthat is found inigneous,metamorphic, andsedimentaryrocks. It is an aluminum oxide with a chemical composition of Al2O3and a hexagonal crystal structure. The mineral is widely known for its extremehardnessand for the fact that it is sometimes found as beautiful transparent crystals in many different colors. The extreme hardness makes corundum an excellent abrasive, and when that hardness is found in beautiful crystals, you have the perfect material for cuttinggemstones. Natural and synthetic corundum are used in a wide variety of industrial applications because of their toughness, hardness, and chemical stability. They are used to make industrial bearings, scratch-resistant windows for electronic instruments, wafers for circuit boards, and many other products. Corundum crystals:Photos of three corundum crystals. On the left is a common corundum from Transvaal, South Africa, that is about 6 centimeters in height. In the center is a gem-quality ruby corundum from Karnataka, India, that is about 1.6 centimeters in height. On the right is a blue sapphire corundum from Sri Lanka that is about two centimeters in height. All three specimens and photos by Arkenstone /www.iRocks.com. Made Famous by Rubies and Sapphires Most people are familiar with corundum; however, very few people know it by its mineral name - instead they know it by the names"ruby" and "sapphire."A gemstone-quality specimen of corundum with a deep red color is known as a "ruby." A gemstone-quality corundum with a blue color is called a "sapphire." Colorless corundum is known as "white sapphire." Corundum of any other color is known as "fancy sapphire." Corundum parting:Hexagonal crystal segments of corundum that have been separated by parting. These specimens are about one centimeter across. USGS photo by Andrew Silver. Corundum gneiss with sapphire:A specimen of corundum gneiss from Gallatin Valley, Montana. This specimen is about twelve centimeters across and has a round blue sapphire crystal on the left side. Properties of Corundum Corundum is an exceptionally hard and tough material. It is the third-hardest mineral, afterdiamondand moissanite. It serves as the index mineral for a hardness of nine on theMohs Hardness Scale. Its hardness, high specific gravity, hexagonal crystals and parting are very good diagnostic properties to use in its identification. A summary of the physical properties of corundum is given in the table below. Physical Properties of Corundum Chemical Classification Oxide Color Typically gray to brown. Colorless when pure, but trace amounts of various metals produce almost any color. Chromium produces red (ruby) and combinations of iron and titanium produce blue (sapphire). Streak Colorless (harder than the streak plate) Luster Adamantine to vitreous Diaphaneity Transparent to translucent Cleavage None. Corundum does display parting perpendicular to the c-axis.

GEMSTONES (13)   Blue Gemstones Blue is the most popular gemstone color.   There are a lot of blue gems. Sapphire Sapphire is a gem variety of themineralcorundum. When corundum is reddish blue to violet-blue, it is known simply as "sapphire." Corundums of any other color (except red, which isruby) are known as "fancy sapphire." On the basis of dollars spent in the United States, sapphire is the most popular blue stone and the third most popular colored stone (afteremeraldand ruby). Sapphire has aMohs hardnessof 9 and can be used in almost any type of jewelry without fear of being scratched. Sapphire was traditionally mined in Southeast Asia, India, and the island nation of Sri Lanka. Recent discoveries of sapphire in several parts of Africa are bringing beautiful stones to the market from brand-new sources. Gem Silica You have probably not heard of thisgembefore. Gem silica is a rare variety of greenish blue chalcedony. Small amounts are currently produced in Arizona and a few other locations. It is the rarest and the most expensive variety of chalcedony. Gem silica receives its wonderful color from small amounts of included chrysocolla orcoppercompounds. It is found in arid areas, in therocksabove copper deposits. Gem silica has aMohs hardnessof 7 and is a very tough stone. That makes it perfect for use in almost any kind of jewelry. You will probably never see gem silica in a mall jewelry store or in a department store. Gem silica is primarily used by high-end jewelry designers who are making one-of-a-kind jewelry items. At the present time (late 2015) it does not have an astronomical price. The 1.5 carat trillion-cut stone in the photo had a retail price of $179. Black Opal The name "

GEMSTONES (14)   Lapis Lazuli A metamorphic rock, gem material, and mineral pigment that obtains its blue color from the mineral lazurite. Lapis Lazuli Gemstones:As a general rule, solid blue lapis or solid blue with a few grains of gold pyrite are the most desirable colors. In the photo above the bottom two cabochons approach that ideal. The large cabochon on the top right has a few thin veins of calcite and some calcite mottling. This stone is attractive and some people might prefer it, but the calcite reduces its desirability for most people. The top left cabochon has large patches of calcite that are intergrown with blue lazurite to yield a faded denim color. It also contains many visible grains of pyrite. For most people, it would be the least desirable stone in the photo; however, some people will enjoy it. Desirability in lapis varies from stone to stone and from person to person. What is Lapis Lazuli? Lapis lazuli, also known simply as "lapis," is a bluemetamorphic rockthat has been used by people as agemstone, sculpting material, and ornamental material for thousands of years. Unlike most other gem materials, lapis lazuli is not amineral. Instead, it is a rock composed of multiple minerals. The blue color of lapis lazuli is mainly derived from the presence of lazurite, a blue silicate mineral of the sodalite group with a chemical composition of (Na,Ca)8(AlSiO4)6(S,Cl,SO4,OH)2. Lapis Lazuli - The Rock:This photo shows a specimen of marble in which small patches of lazurite and abundant crystals of pyrite have formed. This is a beautiful rock specimen, but its usefulness as a rough for cutting high-quality lapis lazuli cabochons or beads is limited because the amount of lazurite present at any location within the rock is lower than optimal. However, this type of rock can be dyed to look like reasonable quality lapis. This image © iStockphoto / Epitavi. Geologic Occurrence of Lapis Lazuli Lapis lazuli forms near igneous intrusions wherelimestoneormarblehas been altered by contact metamorphism or hydrothermal metamorphism. In these rocks, lazurite replaces portions of the host rock and often preferentially develops within certain bands or layers. Afghanistan is the world's leading source of lapis lazuli. Some parts of the country have been actively mined for thousands of years. Other countries that produce notable amounts of lapis lazuli include Chile, Russia, Canada, Argentina, and Pakistan. In the United States small amounts of lapis lazuli have been produced in California, Colorado, and Arizona. Physical Properties of Lapis Lazuli Classification A metamorphic rock that contains enough of the mineral lazurite to impart a distinct blue color. It may also contain significant amounts of calcite, pyrite, and minor amounts of other minerals. Color Blue. Often with white calcite veining or mottling, and gold grains of pyrite. Streak Blue. Luster Dull, but polishes to a bright luster. Diaphaneity Semi-translucent to opaque. Cleavage None, though it may split easily along foliation or calcite veins and layers. Mohs Hardness Varies between the 3 of calcite and the 5 to 5.5 of lazurite. Not well suited for use as a ring stone or in bracelets. Specific Gravity 2.7 to 2.9 or more depending upon the amount of pyrite Diagnostic Properties Blue color, association with pyrite, and hardness. Uses Cabochons, beads, carvings, spheres, inlay, and pigments. Banded Lapis:A piece of rough lapis lazuli showing distinct calcite banding and pyrite on a fracture face.

GEMSTONES (15)   Olivine A group of rock-forming minerals found in Earth's crust.   An abundant mineral in Earth's mantle.  A constituent of many meteorites. Olivine in basalt:Lherzolite (a variety ofperidotite) nodules in a xenolith collected from abasaltflow at Peridot Mesa, Arizona. These xenoliths often contain crystals of olivine with a color and clarity that is suitable for use as a peridot gemstone. This specimen is approximately 3 inches (7.6 centimeters) across. What is Olivine? Olivine is the name of a group of rock-formingmineralsthat are typically found in mafic and ultramaficigneous rockssuch asbasalt,gabbro, dunite, diabase, andperidotite. They are usually green in color and have compositions that typically range between Mg2SiO4and Fe2SiO4. Many people are familiar with olivine because it is the mineral of a very popular green gemstone known as peridot. Olivine gemstone:The gemstone known as peridot is a variety of olivine. These two faceted stones are nice specimens of yellowish green peridot. The gem on the left is a 1.83 carat cushion cut peridot of about 8 x 6 millimeters from Myanmar. The gem on the right is a 1.96 carat cushion checkerboard cut peridot of about 10 x 8 millimeters from China. Photo © geology.com. Geological Occurrence of Olivine Most olivine found at Earth's surface is in dark-colored igneous rocks. It usually crystallizes in the presence ofplagioclaseand pyroxene to form gabbro or basalt. These types of rocks are most common at divergent plate boundaries and at hot spots within the centers of tectonic plates. Olivine has a very high crystallization temperature compared to other minerals. That makes it one of the first minerals to crystallize from a magma. During the slow cooling of a magma, crystals of olivine may form and then settle to the bottom of the magma chamber because of their relatively high density. This concentrated accumulation of olivine can result in the formation of olivine-rich rocks such as dunite in the lower parts of a magma chamber. Crystals of olivine are sometimes formed during themetamorphismof adolomitic limestoneordolomite. The dolomite contributes magnesium, and silica is obtained fromquartzand other impurities in the limestone. When olivine is metamorphosed, it is transformed intoserpentine. Olivine is one of the first minerals to be altered by weathering. Because it is so easily altered by weathering, olivine is not a common mineral insedimentary rocksand is only an abundant constituent ofsandor sediment when the deposit is very close to the source. Olivine sand:Greenolivine sandfrom Papakolea Beach, Hawaii. The white grains are coral fragments, and the gray-black grains are pieces of basalt. If you think the grains have a "gemmy" appearance, olivine is the mineral name of a gemstone known as "peridot." The width of this view is about 10 millimeters.

GEMSTONES (16)   Garnet Best known as a red gemstone. It occurs in many colors and has numerous industrial uses. Gem garnets:Most people think that garnet is a red gemstone. However, garnet occurs in a wide variety of colors. Clockwise from the top left: red almandine (Madagascar), green tsavorite (Tanzania), yellow mali (Mali), orange spessartite (Mozambique), pink malaya (Tanzania), green merelani mint (Tanzania), red pyrope (Ivory Coast), green demantoid (Namibia), purple rhodolite (Mozambique), and orange hessonite (Sri Lanka). Seven out of eight of the garnets above are from Africa, the relatively new source of spectacular garnets. What is Garnet? Garnet is the name used for a large group of rock-formingminerals. These minerals share a common crystal structure and a generalized chemical composition of X3Y2(SiO4)3. In that composition, "X" can be Ca, Mg, Fe2+or Mn2+, and "Y" can be Al, Fe3+, Mn3+, V3+or Cr3+. These minerals are found throughout the world inmetamorphic,igneous, andsedimentary rocks. Most garnet found near Earth's surface forms when a sedimentary rock with a high aluminum content, such asshale, is subjected to heat and pressure intense enough to produceschistorgneiss. Garnet is also found in the rocks of contact metamorphism, subsurface magma chambers, lava flows, deep-source volcanic eruptions, and the soils and sediments formed when garnet-bearing rocks are weathered and eroded. Most people associate the word "garnet" with a redgemstone; however, they are often surprised to learn that garnet occurs in many other colors and has many other uses. In the United States, the major industrial uses of garnet in 2012 were waterjet cutting (35%), abrasive blasting media (30%), water filtration granules (20%), and abrasive powders (10%). The Garnet Group:This chart summarizes the members of the garnet group that are most important as gemstones. The aluminum garnets are normally red in color with a higher specific gravity and hardness. The calcium members are usually green in color and have a lower hardness. Physical Properties of Garnet Chemical Classification Silicate Color Typically red, but can be orange, green, yellow, purple, black, or brown. Blue garnets are extremely rare. Streak Colorless Luster Vitreous Diaphaneity Transparent to translucent Cleavage None Mohs Hardness 6.5 to 7.5 Specific Gravity 3.5 to 4.3 Diagnostic Properties Hardness, specific gravity, isometric crystal habit, lack of cleavage Chemical Composition General formula: X3Y2(SiO4)3 Crystal System Isometric Uses Waterjet cutting granules, abrasive blasting granules, filtration granules, abrasive grits and powders, gemstones Garnet Physical and Chemical Properties The most commonly encountered minerals in the garnet group include almandine, pyrope, spessartine, andradite, grossular, and uvarovite. They all have a vitreous luster, a transparent-to-translucent diaphaneity, a brittle tenacity, and a lack of cleavage. They can be found as individual crystals, stream-worn pebbles, granular aggregates, and massive occurrences. Their chemical composition, specific gravity, hardness, and colors are listed below. Garnet Minerals Mineral Composition Specific Gravity Hardness Colors Almandine Fe3Al2(SiO4)3 4.20 7 - 7.5 red, brown Pyrope Mg3Al2(SiO4)3 3.56 7 - 7.5 red to purple Spessartine Mn3Al2(SiO4)3 4.18 6.5 - 7.5 orange to red to brown Andradite Ca3Fe2(SiO4)3 3.90 6.5 - 7 green, yellow, black Grossular Ca3Al2(SiO4)3 3.57 6.5 - 7.5 green, yellow, red, pink, clear Uvarovite Ca3Cr2(SiO4)3 3.85 6.5 - 7 green The compositions listed above are for end members of several solid solution series. There are a number of other garnet minerals that are less frequently encountered and not as important in industrial use. They include goldmanite, kimzeyite, morimotoite, schorlomite, hydrogrossular, hibschite, katoite, knorringite, majorite, and calderite. As seen above, there are a variety of different types of garnet, and each has a different chemical composition. There are also solid solution series between most of the garnet minerals. This wide variation in chemistry determines many of their physical properties. As an example, the calcium garnets generally have a lower specific gravity, a lower

What are Ant Hill Garnets? Some gemstones derive a large portion of their appeal because they are found in an unexpected locality or have an unusual origin. "Ant hill garnets" are one of the more interesting of these "novelty gems." They are called "ant hill garnets" because they are found on and around the margins of ant hills. The ants encounter the garnets while excavating their underground passages. The ants haul the stones to the surface and discard them. The rain washes the garnets clean and moves them down the flank of the ant hill,

GEMSTONES (18)   Tourmaline Earth's most colorful mineral and gem material. Tourmaline:Six faceted tourmaline gemstones from Africa. Clockwise from top left: A blue-green oval weighing 5.5 carats; emerald-cut chrome tourmaline, 1.51 carats; green round, 1.87 carats; pink emerald cut, 1.04 carats; pink-orange emerald cut, 1.88 carats; red cushion cut, 3.34 carats. (Photos are not to scale.) Specimens and images copyright byLapigems. What is Tourmaline? "Tourmaline" is the name of a large group of boron silicatemineralsthat share a common crystal structure and similar physical properties - but vary tremendously in chemical composition. The wide range of compositions, along with trace elements and color centers, causes tourmalines to occur in more colors and color combinations than any other mineral group. Crystals of good color and clarity are often cut into beautifulgemstones. Tourmaline is such a popular gemstone that it is easy to find in jewelry stores. Nice tourmaline crystals are also valued by mineral specimen collectors. Specimens with attractive colors and habits can sell for thousands of dollars. Tourmalines commonly occur as accessory minerals inigneousandmetamorphic rocks. Large crystals of tourmaline can form in cavities and fractures during hydrothermal activity. Tourmaline also exists as durable grains in sediments and sedimentary rocks. Accessory tourmaline:A specimen of the Crabtree Pegmatite from North Carolina, showing black prismatic tourmaline and green emerald crystals in a matrix of white feldspar and quartz. The width of this view is about two inches. Geologic Occurrence of Tourmaline   Accessory Mineral The most common occurrence of tourmaline is as an accessory mineral in igneous and metamorphic rocks. It usually occurs as millimeter-size crystals scattered throughgranite,pegmatite, andgneiss. In this mode of occurrence, tourmaline rarely makes up more than a few percent of the rock's volume. The mineral most often found as an accessory mineral is black schorl. Tourmaline crystals on cleavelandite:A large mineral specimen consisting of prismatic tourmaline crystals on cleavelandite with quartz and lepidolite. The tourmaline crystals are color zoned with red tourmaline at the base that sharply transitions to blue-green along their length. From the Pederneira Mine of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Measures 21 x 15 x 14 cm. Specimen and photo by Arkenstone /www.iRocks.com. Crystals in Fractures Voids and Pockets   The most spectacular tourmaline crystals are formed by hydrothermal activity. They are found in pockets, voids, or fractures and range in size from tiny millimeter crystals to massive prisms weighing over 100 kilograms. A rich pocket of nice tourmaline crystals can yield mineral specimens and gem materials worth millions of dollars. Alluvial tourmaline:About 30 carats of stream-rounded tourmaline rough from Tanzania in yellow, orange, and green colors. Alluvial Tourmaline   With ahardnessof 7 to 7 1/2, tourmaline weathered from igneous or metamorphic rocks can be a durable sediment grain. Tourmaline gem rough is mined from streams sediments in many parts of the world, often by artisanal miners. Tourmaline is often one of many minerals produced from a single mining location. Physical Properties of Tourmaline Chemical Classification Boron silicate Color Usually black. Blue, green, yellow, pink, red, orange, purple, brown, and colorless. Single crystals are often zoned. Streak White when softer than the streak plate. Colorless when harder than the streak plate.

GEMSTONES (19)   Spinel A gemstone that was confused with ruby and sapphire for over 1000 years. Red and blue spinel: Spinel occurs in a wide variety of colors. The bright reds and deep blues are spectacular specimens. It is easy to understand how early gem traders confused spinel with ruby and sapphire for over 1000 years. Specimens and photos by Arkenstone / www.iRocks.com. Faceted spinel:Several pretty facet-cut spinels. It is easy to see how spinel can be confused with ruby and sapphire or used as an alternative stone. These spinels are about 4 1/2 millimeters in size and weigh a little less than 1/2 carat each. The top three red and pink stones were cut from material mined in Myanmar. Deep red spinel is rarer than ruby but sells at a fraction of the price. The blue stones below them were cut from material mined in Tanzania. The Ruby and Sapphire Impostor Spinel is a gemstone mineral that has been confused withrubyandsapphirefor over 1000 years. Several of the most spectacular spinels ever discovered have been mounted in "crown jewels" and other "jewelry of significance" under the assumption that they were rubies or sapphires. Spinel occurs in the same bright red and blue colors as rubies and sapphires. Spinel forms in the same rock units, under the same geological conditions and is found in the same gravels. It is not surprising that ancient gem traders thought that these colorful spinels were rubies and sapphires. Physical Properties of Spinel Chemical Classification Oxide Color Colorless, pink, red, orange, blue, purple, brown, black Streak Colorless (harder than the streak plate) Luster Vitreous Diaphaneity Transparent to translucent Cleavage None Mohs Hardness 7.5 to 8 Specific Gravity 3.5 to 4.1 Diagnostic Properties Hardness, octahedral crystals, vitreous luster Chemical Composition MgAl2O4 Crystal System Isometric Uses The only significant use is as a gemstone. Why the Confusion? Two thousand years ago,gemstonetraders did not know that spinel andcorundum(themineralof ruby and sapphire) have different chemical compositions and different crystal structures. Instead, gem traders thought that every bright red gemstone was a "ruby" and every deep blue gemstone was a "sapphire." As a result, lots of spinels are now in very important jewelry collections based on their incorrect identification as a ruby. The Black Prince's Ruby The most famous example of a spinel being identified as a ruby is a 170-carat bright red spinel named "The Black Prince's Ruby." The first known owner of this beautiful stone was Abu Sa'id, the Moorish Prince of Granada, in the 14th century. The stone passed through several owners and eventually made its way into the Imperial State Crown of the United Kingdom, where it is mounted immediately above the famous Cullinan II diamond. [1,photo] The Timur Ruby The "Timur Ruby" is a 352.5-carat bright red spinel that is currently in a necklace of The Royal Collection that was made for Queen Victoria in 1853. The stone was found in Afghanistan and is inscribed with the names and dates of its owners back to 1612. It was part of a group of spinels from the Lahore Treasure presented to Queen Victoria by the East India Company in 1849.

GEMSTONES (20)   Sunstone Also known as "aventurescent feldspar" because some specimens contain light-reflecting inclusions that produce a bright flash. Oregon Sunstoneas a faceted stone and a cabochon. The stone on the left is a beautiful orange 7x5 mm oval faceted stone weighing 1.01 carats. The stone on the right is a 7 mm round cabochon with abundant copper platelets weighing 2.29 carats. Both stones are from the Spectrum Sunstone Mine near Plush, Oregon. What is Sunstone? The name "sunstone" is used for specimens of translucent to transparent feldspar that produce bright metallic flashes when light interacts with tiny plate-like mineral inclusions within the stone. These mineral inclusions usually have a common orientation, and light entering the stone reflects from them at a common angle. This produces a flash of light in the eye of the observer who views them at the proper angle. This optical phenomenon is known as "aventurescence." The first materials to be called "sunstone" because of their aventurescence were specimens of oligoclase, aplagioclasefeldspar. As other types of feldspar with a strong aventurescence were discovered, the name was also applied to them.Labradoritefeldspar (another plagioclase) and orthoclase feldspar have both been found with strong aventurescence. [1] The aventurescent flash of light produced by a sunstone can be observed by three different actions: moving the stone in the light moving the position of the light moving the eye of the observer Sunstone is also known as "heliolite" and more commonly "aventurescent feldspar." It is cut intocabochons, beads, and small sculptures. The most transparent pieces are used to produce faceted stones. Sunstone is popular with innovative jewelry designers and is especially popular in the geographic areas where it is commercially mined. It is not agemstonethat is seen in every jewelry store, and many jewelry buyers have never witnessed its aventurescence. However, once a person is given a demonstration of sunstone’s aventurescence, they often want to try it and are fascinated. It is a gemstone that sells best if the jeweler takes a moment to educate the buyer about aventurescence. Aventurescent sunstone:Close-up photo of the round sunstone cabochon from the top image, showing beautiful flashes of aventurescence caused by light reflecting from the copper platelet inclusions within the stone. Sunstone Localities Aventurescent feldspar has been found in Australia, Canada, China, Congo, India, Mexico, Norway, Russia, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, the United States (Oregon, New York, Virginia, Pennsylvania) and other localities. The most famous sunstone deposits in the United States are located in Oregon. A few of the sunstone deposits in Oregon are large enough to sustain mining operations. They are found in certainbasaltflows in Lake County and Harney County. There the sunstone occurs as phenocrysts within the basalt. Some sunstone is produced from the weathered zone above the basalt flows, and some is produced from the basalt. The Oregon basalt flows that contain sunstone are located mainly on public land, and many productive or promising areas are held by mining claims. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has reserved one area in Lake County as a public collecting area where anyone can enter, look for sunstone, and keep what they find for personal use. Collectors must follow BLM’s collecting rules and stay off of adjacent lands where mining claims have been registered. Collecting on land with an active mining claim can only be done with the owner's permission.

GEMSTONES (21)   Malachite Used as an ore of copper, a pigment, a gemstone, and a sculptural material for thousands of years. Malachite Gemstones:A malachite cabochon (30x40 millimeter) and a malachite puffed heart, both cut from rough mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This oval cabochon shows the agate-like banding in various shades of green that is typical of malachite. The puffed heart shows concentric structures. What is Malachite? Malachite is a green copper carbonate hydroxidemineralwith a chemical composition of Cu2(CO3)(OH)2. It was one of the first ores used to producecoppermetal. It is of minor importance today as an ore of copper because it is usually found in small quantities and can be sold for higher prices for other types of use. Malachite has been used as agemstoneand sculptural material for thousands of years and is still popular today. Today it is most often cut into cabochons or beads for jewelry use. Malachite has a green color that does not fade over time or when exposed to light. Those properties, along with its ability to be easily ground to a powder, made malachite a preferred pigment and coloring agent for thousands of years. Botryoidal Malachite:Close-up of botryoidal malachite in a seafoam green color from Bisbee, Arizona. This view spans an area of the specimen about 5 millimeters wide and high. Specimen and photo by Arkenstone /www.iRocks.com. Where Does Malachite Form? Malachite is a mineral that forms at shallow depths within the Earth, in the oxidizing zone above copper deposits. It precipitates from descending solutions in fractures, caverns, cavities, and the intergranular spaces of porous rock. It often forms withinlimestonewhere a subsurface chemical environment favorable for the formation of carbonate minerals can occur. Associated minerals includeazurite,bornite,calcite,chalcopyrite,copper,cuprite, and a variety of iron oxides. Some of the first malachite deposits to be exploited were located in Egypt and Israel. Over 4000 years ago, they were mined and used to produce copper. Material from these deposits was also used to produce gemstones, sculptures, and pigments. Several large deposits in the Ural Mountains of Russia were aggressively mined, and they supplied abundant gem and sculptural material in the 1800s. Very little is produced from these deposits today. Much of the malachite entering the

GEMSTONES (22)   Fire Opal A translucent to transparent opal with a wonderful fire-like background color of yellow, orange, or red. Fire Opal: These three stones show the color range of "fire opal," a name given to specimens of translucent to transparent common opal with a wonderful fiery background hue that is present throughout the stone. The orange and yellow stones have a sleepy translucence, while the red stone is almost opaque. What is Fire Opal? "Fire Opal" is a term used for colorful, transparent to translucent opal with a background color that is a fire-like hue of yellow to orange to red. It might or might not exhibit "play-of-color" (the typical flashes of spectral colors that can be seen when a precious opal is turned under a source of light). Most fire opal does not have play-of-color. The defining characteristic of fire opal is the fiery hue of yellow, orange or red that serves as a uniform background color throughout the stone. These colors are thought to be caused by the presence of small amounts of iron in the opal. The value of a fire opal is based upon the desirability and uniformity of its color, with yellow being on the low end of value and red being on the high end. Transparent stones are preferred over translucent stones. The best fire opal typically sells for prices that are much lower than the best precious opal; however, fire opal specimens with exceptional color will sell for higher prices than some specimens of precious opal with less impressive play-of-color. Oregon Fire Opal: The orange stone shown here is a faceted fire opal cut from material mined in Oregon. It is 9 x 7 millimeters in size and weighs about 1.2 carats.

GEMSTONES (23)   "Whitby" Jet A black organic gem material that is also a rock very similar to coal. Faceted jet:Four stones of faceted jet from the Whitby area of England. These stones clearly show how jet can accept a highly reflective polish. The round stone at the bottom of this photo is about 12 millimeters in diameter. What is Jet? Jet is a black organicrockthat forms when pieces of woody material are buried in sediment and are coalified. Though very similar tocoal, it is less friable. Jet can be cut, carved, and polished to a bright luster. People have used jet for thousands of years to producegemstones, beads, and many other objects. Jet is one of just a feworganic gemstones. It is the material that inspired the phrase "jet black," which means "as black as possible." Jet with wood grain:A thin piece of jet from a mine near Whitby, England. The surface of this piece shows some of the structures of the plant from which it was formed. The specimen is about 3 centimeters across. How Does Jet Form? The material known as "jet" is very similar to coal, but the way that it forms is different. Most coal seams form when a swamp containing abundant woody material is buried; that woody material is then compacted, undergoes organic degradation, and is heated. The result is a coal seam. Jet does not form in a seam. Instead, it forms when an individual piece of woody material such as a tree branch is washed into a body of water, becomes waterlogged, sinks to the bottom and is covered by organic-rich sediment. It is then compacted, degraded, and heated in isolation. This produces a material that is similar to coal; however, this material is much more influenced by the geochemical environment of the surrounding organic-richshale. Jet is thought to absorb oils released by the decay of oil-rich organic debris in the surrounding rock, such as algae and plankton. As the jet is transformed into a rock, it does not develop a system of fractures, known as "cleat," which develops in a coal seam. This gives the jet a more uniform texture and a toughness that contrasts with the friability of coal removed from a seam. The woody origin of jet has been confirmed because, when examined under magnification, jet contains thepreserved cellular structureof the original woody plants. Some specimens display obvious plant structures without magnification.

GEMSTONES (24)   Organic Gemstones Some are composed of organic materials, some are fossilized organic structures. Organic Gemstones: This colorful collage features some of the organic gems of this article. Starting at the top and moving to the left are: amber, ammolite, fossil coral, petrified wood, fossil stromatolite, mother of pearl, fossil sand dollar, turritella agate, freshwater cultured pearls, fossil dinosaur bone, fossil crinoidal limestone, and red coral. See below for more. What are Organic Gems? Although most gemstones are mineral materials, a number of organic materials are also considered to be gemstones. The most common of these are pearl, bone, amber, coral, jet, and ivory. These are materials, produced by organisms, that have been cut into gems and other ornamental objects. There are also organic materials that have been mineralized (replaced and infilled by chalcedony, opal, calcite, aragonite, pyrite, or other mineral material). Although the material itself is not organic, it does preserve an organic structure. Examples include petrified wood, fossil coral, dinosaur bone, and other fossilized organisms or parts of organisms. Petrified wood is a fossil that forms when woody material is buried, then dissolved materials in groundwater precipitate to replace and infill the wood structure with silica, opal, or other mineral material. Pearls: Yes, pearls are considered to be "gemstones." They are produced by mollusks and other shellfish. People have used them as gems for thousands of years. The pearls in this photo are cultured freshwater pearls produced in Tennessee. Petrified Palm: Petrified palm, also known as "petrified palm wood," is a material commonly found in the Oligocene-age sediments of the United States Gulf Coast. It is not actually a wood; instead it is fossilized parenchyma, the fibrous material that composes a palm tree. It is described in detail in our article on Louisiana gems.

GEMSTONES (25)   Kyanite A mineral used to make porcelain, as an abrasive, and occasionally as a gemstone Blue kyanite crystals:A very common habit of kyanite is blue bladed crystals. Image byAelwyn, Creative Commons license. What is Kyanite? Kyanite is a mineral found mainly inmetamorphic rocks. It most often forms from the high-pressure alteration of clay minerals during the metamorphism ofsedimentary rocks. It is found in theschistsandgneissesof regionally metamorphosed areas and less often inquartziteor eclogite. Kyanite's typical habit is a bladed crystal, although it sometimes occurs as radiating masses of crystals. Kyanite is often associated with other metamorphic minerals such asgarnet,staurolite, andcorundum. Radiating kyanite:Sometimes kyanite occurs as radiating masses of crystals such as this specimen from Petaca, New Mexico. Specimen is about 4 inches (ten centimeters) across. Kyanite's Unusual Hardness Kyanite specimens have a variable hardness. The long crystals have aMohs hardnessof about 4.5 to 5 if tested parallel to the length of a crystal, and a hardness of 6.5 to 7 if tested across the short dimension of a crystal. The mineral was once commonly called "disthene" which means "two strengths." Physical Properties of Kyanite Chemical Classification Silicate

GEMSTONES (26)   Gem Silica A bluish green to greenish blue chalcedony that obtains its color from copper. Gem Silica Cabochon:A gemmy, vivid blue cabochon cut from natural, translucent gem silica from the Inspiration Mine, Gila County, Arizona. It is a 1.59 carat trillion measuring about 7.55 x 7.41 x 4.88 millimeters. What is Gem Silica? Gem silica is a bluish green to greenish blue variety of chalcedony that receives its vivid color from the presence ofcopper. It is often known as "chrysocolla chalcedony" or "gem silica chrysocolla." Gem silica is the most valuable variety of chalcedony, with quality cutgemstonesselling for over $100 per carat. The best specimens have a pleasing blue color with strong saturation, a uniform translucence, and and a lack of inclusions. Even though gem silica is one of the most beautiful blue gemstones, most people have never heard of it. That is because it is a very rare gem. It is seldom seen in jewelry and is used mainly by a small number of high-end jewelry designers. Botryoidal Gem Silica:A beautiful specimen of gem silica in a turquoise blue color, exhibiting the botryoidal habit that is typical of chalcedony.

GEMSTONES (27)   Ametrine A bicolor quartz gemstone consisting of amethyst and citrine Ametrine: Beautiful ametrine gemstones. The center stone is a traditional 50/50 split of amethyst and citrine. The stones on the left and right are artistic cuts that allow light entering the stone to pass through purple amethyst and yellow citrine and blend into beautiful shades of orange, magenta, peach, and a range of other colors. Images courtesy of Minerales y Metales del Oriente S.R.L. and Ametrine.com. Faceted ametrine:Ametrine has traditionally been faceted in the emerald cut with approximately 1/2 of the stone composed of citrine, 1/2 composed of amethyst, and the dividing line between the color zones perpendicular to the table. This stone has been cut to display the two colors of quartz. It is a 12x8 millimeter emerald-cut ametrine weighing approximately 3.5 carats. What is Ametrine? Most people have never heard of ametrine and are very surprised to see purple and yellow in a single transparent gemstone. Ametrine is a rare gemstone with a finite supply that is produced in commercial quantities at only one mine in the world. It is a relative newcomer to the gemstone trade, being available in small quantities for just a few decades. Ametrine is a variety of bicolorquartzthat has zones ofamethyst(purple) and citrine (golden yellow) in contact with one another in a single crystal. The words AMEthyst and ciTRINE were combined to yield the name "ametrine," which is widely used in thegemstonetrade. This material is known by other less-frequently used names including: "amethyst-citrine," "trystine," "bicolor amethyst," "bicolor quartz," and "bolivianite." The bolivianite name is a response to the material being designated as the national gemstone ofBolivia. Ametrine mine map:This map shows the geographic location of the Anahi ametrine mine in the Pantanal of eastern Bolivia. Where is Ametrine Produced? Ametrine is rarely found in nature. Almost all of the world's commercial ametrine production has been from the Anahi Mine in southeastern Bolivia. The mine has been operated by Minerales y Metales del Oriente S.R.L. since 1989. The Anahi Mine is in a dolomiticlimestoneof the Murcielago Group, a sequence of limestones up to 1500 feet thick that dip to the southwest in the area of the mine. Some zones within the Murcielago Group are heavily silicified, causing them to resist weathering and stand up above the surrounding Pantanal lowlands as prominent north-south-trending ridges. The Anahi Mine is in a ridge at a location where the dolomitic limestone is faulted and silicified. [1] Most of the mining activity is done underground, with a small amount of production at the surface. [2] Hydrothermal activity has facilitated the growth of quartz within fractures and vugs of the dolomitic limestone. The walls of these openings are often covered with a thick layer of massive quartz with euhedral quartz crystals growing inwards towards the center of the cavities. Some of these are crystals of ametrine; many have been etched by later hydrothermal activity.

GEMSTONES (29)   Aventurine A translucent quartz with sparkling reflections. It occurs in a range of colors. Translucent Aventurine:A small polished piece of aventurine about three centimeters across that shows the translucence, highly included nature and aventurescence of the material. The green inclusions in the stone are fuchsite, a green, chromium-rich mica similar to muscovite. What is Aventurine? Aventurine is a variety of translucentquartzwith abundant small plate- or flake-shaped inclusions. Light entering the quartz strikes these inclusions and reflects from them. This produces a sparkly appearance known as "aventurescence." When the inclusions are abundant and in a common orientation, their reflections can be eye-catching. This property, along with desirable colors, are what give aventurine its appeal as agemstone. Aventurine is usually green, but also occurs in orange, yellow, red, pink, brown, white, gray, and blue. Spelling Note: Aventurine is spelled with a "v" as the second letter. Speak and write carefully to help others know that the word does not have a "d." Colorful Aventurine:Pieces of green, yellow, and reddish-orange aventurine tumbling rough from India. These pieces of rough average about 1 inch across. Types of Inclusions The most common inclusion in aventurine isfuchsite, a green chromium-rich mica. It can be abundant enough in the quartz to give the material a green color. Some people think that aventurine should be classified as arockbecause the inclusions often make up ten to twenty percent of the material. Small reflective particles of other materials can cause aventurescence in quartz.Hematiteand goethite can produce pink, orange, red, and brown aventurine.Muscoviteandilmenitecan produce blue, gray, or white aventurine. Bright reflections and attractive colors make aventurine a popularsemiprecious gemstone. Blue Aventurine:A blue specimen of aventurescent quartz from India. This specimen is about ten centimeters across. Sources of Aventurine Small amounts of aventurine occur in many parts of the world. India is by far the most important commercial producer of aventurine. Brazil is the second-place producer. Russia, Spain, Austria, and Tanzania produce smaller amounts of aventurine. Some people hold the opinion that most of the material sold today as "aventurine" has inadequate aventurescence to merit the name. Immediately discernable aventurescence in quartz is hard to find, and remarkable aventurescence is extremely rare.

Azurmalachite cabochons:Cabochons of azurmalachite showing nice patterns of azurite (blue) and malachite (green). They were cut from material produced at the Morenci Mine in Arizona. These cabs were cut from thin vein material and have a natural wall-rock backing. Both cabs are about 25 millimeters tall. What is Azurmalachite? Azurmalachite is a blue and green gem material composed of two copper carbonate minerals,azurite(Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2) andmalachite(Cu2(CO3)(OH)2). The name "azurmalachite" was derived by combining the names of theminerals. The material is also known as "bluebird." Azurmalachite can be a very attractive material that features bands, concentric patterns, and irregular mottling in vivid greens and blues. It has one of the most striking color patterns in the entiregemstonemarketplace. Mottled azurmalachite:A cab showing a mottled mixture of azurite and malachite from an unknown locality. Azurite is often replaced by malachite as geochemical conditions change underground. This often results in a mottled appearance rather than distinct banding or other patterns. Geologic Occurrence of Azurmalachite Azurmalachite is arockthat forms at shallow depths in the oxidizing zone abovecopperdeposits. Slightly acidic, copper-bearing waters percolate downwards through fractures and pore spaces in the rock.

Red Beryl:Crystals of red beryl on matrix from the Violet Mine in the Wah Wah Mountains of Beaver County, Utah. Approximately 11 x 7 x 4 centimeters in size. Specimen and photo by Arkenstone /www.iRocks.com. What Is Red Beryl? Red beryl is an extremely rare variety ofberylthat receives its red color from trace amounts ofmanganese. In the entire world, crystals suitable for cuttinggemshave been found in only one location, the Ruby-Violet claims in the Wah Wah Mountains of Beaver County,Utah. The Utah Geological Survey estimated that one crystal of red beryl is found for every 150,000 gem-qualitydiamonds. [1] Red beryl has been found at a few locations in Utah (Wildhorse Springs, Topaz Valley, Starvation Canyon), New Mexico (Beryllium Virgin prospect, Black Range, East Grants Ridge), and Mexico (San Luis Potosi). [2] At these locations, crystals of red beryl are normally just a few millimeters in length and are too small or imperfect to facet. Red Beryl:A faceted red beryl with a beautiful medium red color. It measures about 5.2 x 3.9 millimeters in size. From the Wah Wah Mountains of Utah. Photo byTheGemTrader.com. Why Is Red Beryl So Rare? Red beryl is a rare mineral because its formation requires a unique geochemical environment. First, the elementberylliummust be present in large enough amounts to formminerals. Second, dissolved manganese must be present at the same time and location. Third, the correct geochemical conditions must be present for beryllium, manganese, aluminum, silicon, and oxygen to crystallize into red beryl. Fractures and cavities must also be available to serve as a space for the crystals to grow. Physical Properties of Red Beryl

GEMSTONES (32)   Chrysoprase The green gemstone variety of chalcedony. Chrysoprase: Three chrysoprase cabochons in varying colors of green. From left to right they are: a medium green oval of 8 x 10 millimeters cut from material mined in the Marlborough District of Queensland, Australia; a light green oval of 10 x 13 millimeters cut from material mined in Brazil; and, a dark green oval of 8 x 9 millimeters cut from material mined in India. What is Chrysoprase? Chrysoprase is the name of a translucent chalcedony that ranges in color between yellowish green and green. Its green color is usually caused by traces of nickel. Beautiful green chrysoprase is the second most valuable variety of chalcedony after gem silica. The name "chrysoprase" is from the Greek words for "golden apple" or "golden leek." Today it is most often used for making beads and cabochons. Exceptional pieces of chrysoprase are sometimes cut into translucent faceted stones. Chrysoprase as a gemstone was known to the ancient Greeks and Romans. A few pieces have been found among their artifacts, but its use in that time was not common. Chrysoprase first became a popular gem in Europe after deposits in Poland were discovered in the 1700s. Today, most chrysoprase is produced in Australia, but it is not widely used because supplies are limited. Color in Chrysoprase The color of chrysoprase is mainly determined by its nickel content; however, the nickel can occur within the microcrystalline quartz in multiple ways. Small amounts of nickel silicate admixed with the quartz, dispersed nickel oxide, and free nickel ions might all contribute to the green color of chrysoprase. The nickel is not believed to enter the lattice of the microcrystalline quartz. Chrysoprase occurs in a range of green colors. These range from a pale yellowish green to a deeply saturated green. The abundance of nickel determines the strength of the green color. Pale yellowish green specimens can contain between 0.2 and 1.0 weight percent nickel oxide. Deep green specimens can contain up to 5 weight percent nickel oxide. The color in some specimens of chrysoprase is unstable. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause it to fade. If faded specimens are found at the surface in the field, better color might be found just below the surface. Heat can also cause color fading in chrysoprase. Care should be taken during jewelry repair to avoid heating the stone. Cut stones and gem materials should not be stored or displayed where they will be exposed to direct sunlight or heat.

GEMSTONES (33)   Beryl This minor ore of beryllium is one of the most important gem minerals. Aquamarine beryl:A spectacular crystal of aquamarine from the Shigar Valley of northern Pakistan. This specimen clearly shows the hexagonal form with terminations and a vivid blue color. The specimen is approximately 15 x 11 x 7.5 centimeters in size. Specimen and photo by Arkenstone /www.iRocks.com. What is Beryl? Beryl is a relatively rare silicatemineralwith a chemical composition of Be3Al2Si6O18. It is found inigneousandmetamorphic rocksin many parts of the world. Before 1969, beryl served as the only important ore ofberylliummetal. Since then, most of the world's supply of beryllium is refined from bertrandite, a beryllium silicate hydroxide, mined at Spor Mountain, Utah. Small amounts of beryl, mostly produced as a by-product ofgemstonemining, are still used to produce beryllium. The major economic interest in beryl today is its use as agemstone. It is one of the most important gem minerals, and the gems are named by their color asemerald(green), aquamarine (greenish blue to blue), morganite (pink to orange),red beryl(red),heliodor(yellow to greenish yellow), maxixe (deep blue), goshenite (colorless), and green beryl (light green). Emerald and aquamarine are the most popular. Compared to other gemstones, emeralds are second only todiamondsin terms of the dollar value imported into the United States. Occasionally,chatoyantspecimens of beryl are found that can be cut intocabochonsto produce interesting cat's-eye gemstones. Emerald beryl:Vivid green beryl crystals from the Cosquez Mine in Colombia. The cluster measures 5 x 4.2 x 3 centimeters. Specimen and photo by Arkenstone /www.iRocks.com. Geologic Occurrence of Beryl Beryl is a mineral that contains a significant amount of beryllium. Beryllium is a very raremetal, and that limits the occurrence of beryl to a few geological situations where beryllium is present in sufficient amounts to form minerals. It mainly occurs ingranite,rhyolite, and granitepegmatites; inmetamorphic rocksassociated with pegmatites; and, in veins and cavities where hydrothermal activity is associated with rocks of granitic composition. These different types of deposits are often found together and serve as an exploration model for finding beryl. Beryl is also found where carbonaceousshale,limestone, andmarblehave been acted upon by regional metamorphism. The famous emerald deposits of Colombia and Zambia have been formed under these conditions. The carbonaceous material is thought to provide thechromiumor vanadium needed to color the emerald.

GEMSTONES(34)   Smoky Quartz A brown color-variety of the mineral quartz. Smoky Quartz Crystals:A group of smoky quartz crystals on a bed of feldspar and peppered by tiny orange spessartine garnet crystals. This specimen is from the Wushan Spassartine Mine, Fujian Province, China. The crystal group is approximately 18 x 13.5 x 8.0 centimeters in size. Specimen and photo by Arkenstone /www.iRocks.com. What is Smoky Quartz? Smoky quartz is a color-variety of crystallinequartz. It ranges from a light yellowish brown to a brown that is so dark that it appears to be black. Less-desirable specimens have a grayish brown color. When cut as agem, stones with an orangish brown to a reddish brown color are preferred by many people. Smoky quartz is an inexpensivegem materialbecause it is abundant, found in many locations, and its brown color is not currently in high demand. It is often found in large crystals of excellent transparency with few inclusions. The color of smoky quartz is produced when natural radiation, emitted from the surrounding rock, activates color centers around aluminum impurities within the crystalline quartz.Amethystforms in a similar way, from the activation of color centers around iron impurities. Treatments Some specimens of rock crystal can be given the color of smoky quartz by irradiation in a laboratory. The exposure can be controlled to vary the color of the product. This is not often done in a lab because natural smoky quartz is inexpensive and abundant relative to demand. For the same reason, synthetic smoky quartz is seldom produced. Natural smoky quartz with a very dark color is sometimes heated to lighten its color.

GEMSTONES (35)   Scapolite A name used for the solid-solution mineral pair of marialite and meionite. Cat's-eye scapolite:Some scapolite has an internal silk that causes it to form acat's-eyeor a chatoyance. The stone on the left is a 10 x 7 millimeter oval with a very coarse silk. The silk can be seen in the stone as linear bands of black inclusions that cross the stone from left to right. The cat's-eye forms at right angles to the silk. In the stone on the right, the silk has just the right spacing to serve as a diffraction grating and produce a beautiful display of iridescent color. Both gems were cut from material produced in India. What is Scapolite? Scapolite is a name used for a group of aluminosilicate minerals that includes meionite, marialite, and silvialite. Meionite and marialite are end members of a solid solution series. Silvialite is a mineral that is very similar to meionite. These minerals have very similar compositions, crystal structures, and physical properties. They cannot be easily distinguished from one another in the field or during hand specimen examination in a laboratory. The name "scapolite" is a term used for convenient communication. These minerals are found in small quantities in somemetamorphicandigneous rocks. Their compositions are compared in the table below.

GEMSTONES (37)   Turritella Agate Named "Turritella" in error decades ago. The correct name would be "Elimia Agate." Turritella Agate / Elimia Agate: A close-up photo of a sawn surface of Turritella Agate showing numerous spiral-shaped snail shells. This type of view shows how the internal cavities of the shells and the voids between the shells have all been infilled with the translucent-to-transparent agate. This view is about two inches across. What is Turritella Agate? Turritella Agate is the popular name used for a brown, translucent, fossiliferous agate found in the Green River Formation of Wyoming. It is very easy to recognize because it contains large fossil snails that stand out in a white-to-tan color that contrasts with the brownish agate. This organic gem material was incorrectly named decades ago when the christener thought that the spectacular spiral-shaped gastropod (snail) fossils entombed within the stone were members of the marine Turritella genus. That was a mistake. Instead, the fossils are of the freshwater snail,Elimia tenera, a member of the Pleuroceridae family. Before the correct name was realized and widely published, the gem material became quite popular and the name "Turritella" went wild in lapidary magazines, gem, mineral, and fossil books, catalogs, and exhibits. Today it is typically seen without corrective note in all of those sources, along with websites, online auctions, and computer software. Only a fraction of the people who have collected the material, cut it into cabochons, sold it, bought it, or worn it in jewelry have any knowledge that Elimia is a more appropriate name. It is possible that the misnamed Turritella is the best-known fossil from the Green River Formation.

GEMSTONES (29)   Chatoyant Gems - The Cat’s-Eye Phenomenon What causes the bright line of reflected light that moves under the surface of a chatoyant gem? Cat's-eye chrysoberyl: Chrysoberyl is the gem that exhibits the finest "cat's-eye." When the name "cat's-eye" is used alone, it is understood that the speaker is referring to a cat's-eye chrysoberyl. When the speaker is referring to any other gem with a cat's-eye, the name of that gem is used after the words "cat's-eye." For example: "cat's-eye apatite." This green cat's-eye chrysoberyl was produced in Sri Lanka and is about 5.6 x 4 millimeters in size. What is Chatoyance? Chatoyance is an optical phenomenon in which a band of reflected light, known as a "cat's-eye," moves just beneath the surface of a cabochon-cut gemstone. Chrysoberyl and tiger's-eye are two of the best-known gem materials that exhibit this phenomenon. Excellent specimens of chrysoberyl exhibit the finest chatoyance, and tiger's-eye is the chatoyant gem most widely used in jewelry. Chatoyance occurs in stones that contain a large number of very thin parallel inclusions within the stone, known as a "silk." The light reflects from these inclusions to form a thin band across the surface of the stone. The band of light always occurs at right angles to the length of the parallel inclusions. These inclusions can be crystals, hollow tubes, or other linear structures that are present throughout the stone and are usually aligned with a crystallographic axis. Needle-like crystals of rutile and hematite are well-known for producing a cat’s-eye in many specimens. Tiger's-eye cabochons: Two "honey" tiger's-eye cabochons with very nice chatoyance. These stones are 8 x 6 millimeter ovals and cost a few dollars each. They were cut from material mined in the Central African Republic. Tiger's-eye is the only chatoyant stone that is produced in large quantities in calibrated sizes. That makes it the only chatoyant stone commonly seen in mass-production jewelry stores. It is very popular in men's rings and cufflinks. Chatoyance - Eye of the Cat The name "chatoyance" originates from the French word "chatoyer," which means "to shine like a cat's eye." The analogy also matches the way a cat's pupils will narrow to a thin slit under bright light. Cat's eye with a slit pupil: This cat's eyes have responded to bright light by closing their pupils to a narrow slit. This is where the "cat's-eye" gemstone name originates. Image © iStockphoto and Astrid Gast. Cat's-eye actinolite: Two cat's-eye actinolite cabochons cut from material mined in Tanzania. Actinolite is an amphibole mineral that often has a fibrous internal texture that serves as a "silk" and produces very strong eyes. These stones are 7-millimeter rounds. Understanding Chatoyance A good analogy for the chatoyance effect is how light reflects to form a line across the surface of a spool of silk thread. Viewing and moving a spool of silk thread under a beam of incident light can be a useful way to develop an understanding of how parallel inclusions produce an "eye" within a gemstone.

These cabs show only part of the color diversity of the dots and the various types of background material. The cab in the center of the bottom row measures 36 x 25 millimeters in size. What is Polka Dot Agate? Polka dot agate is an orbicular agate produced from the Priday Agate Beds of central Oregon. It has an appearance that sounds just like its name. It is a semitransparent to semitranslucent agate with suspended round "dots" of contrasting colors. It is a favorite Oregon gemstone. Polka dot's base colors range from blue to white to pale yellow. The dots can be almost any combination of yellow, orange, red, brown, or black. Nature has also marked some specimens with black dendrites. Other specimens are cross-cut by intrusions of brown jasper. The diaphaneity ranges from almost transparent to almost opaque. This color and geometry makes some of the most interesting and beautiful types of agate that you will ever see. The dots in the agate range in size from nearly invisible up to about 1/4 inch across. Most of them are completely agatized, but some appear to be a soft iron oxide material similar to

GEMSTONES (31)   Helenite A novelty colored stone made from the ash of the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption Helenite:Three specimens of faceted helenite in blue, red, and green. These colored stones are faceted ovals about 8 x 6 millimeters in size. They were purchased in 2014 for less than $10 per stone. What is Helenite? “Helenite” is a trade name used for a man-made glass that is produced usingvolcanic ashfrom the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. It is sold as facet rough,faceted stones, tumbled stones, and mounted in finished jewelry. The material has been produced in a variety of green, red, and blue hues, which are produced or enhanced by adding coloring agents to the melt. Tourists visiting Mount St. Helens are the primary market for the noveltycolored stonejewelry made with helenite. Mount St. Helens Ash:A sample of ash from the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption, collected a short time after it fell. The freshly fallen ash was typically a light gray powder. USGS image. History of Helenite The story of helenite begins shortly after the May 18, 1980volcanic eruptionof Mount St. Helens that blanketed portions of the northwestern United States with a thin layer of volcanic ash. The eruption was widely described in the media, and millions of people became curious about thevolcanoand the impact of the eruption. Immediately after the eruption, people who lived near the volcano began sharing samples of the ash with curious friends and relatives. People who lived outside

GEMSTONES (32)   Fancy Sapphire Sapphires occur in many other colors beyond blue. Fancy Sapphires from Australia: These colorful sapphires were produced at the Capricorn Sapphire Mine in Central Queensland, Australia. The mine produces deep blue sapphires and fancy sapphires in a wide range of yellow, green, and bluish green hues. The gems above are all natural-color sapphires without any treatments. Photos courtesy of Richland Gemstones, owner of the Capricorn Sapphire mine. What Are Fancy Sapphires? A fancy sapphire is a gem-quality corundum that is any color other than red, blue, or colorless. The mineral known as corundum occurs in an infinite number of colors. When it is red, it is known as "ruby," when blue it is known as "sapphire," and when colorless it is known as "white sapphire." All other colors of gem-quality corundum are "fancy sapphire." Fancy Sapphire Sources Sri Lanka, India, Myanmar, Thailand, and Australia have historically been important sources of fancy sapphire. Minor amounts have been produced in numerous other countries. In the United States, Montana has been a source of fancy sapphires for over 100 years. In the 1960s sapphire was named the "official state gemstone." That attention helped Montana sapphires of all colors attract the patronage of state residents and a steady stream of tourists and visitors. During the past few decades, Africa has become an important source of fancy sapphires. Deposits in Tanzania, Kenya, Madagascar, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and other countries are producing these colorful gems. Corundum as ruby, sapphire, and fancy sapphire: Gem-quality corundum is a highly prized and valuable material. When it is bright red in color, it is called "ruby." When it is deep blue, it is called "sapphire." Gem-quality corundum of any other color is called "fancy sapphire." All of the stones in this photo were mined in Africa. Color in Corundum As a mineral, corundum is allochromatic. That means pure corundum (Al2O3) is colorless or white. Other colors in corundum are produced by impurities. Trace amounts of chromium, titanium, and iron, along with color centers, are the primary causes of color. The causes of color in ruby and sapphire are well researched and documented. Chromium is the primary cause of the red color of ruby. A combination of iron and titanium cause the blue color of sapphire. The cause of color in the many hues of fancy sapphire is less well researched. Chromium,

These hexagonal crystals are small, mostly about 8 millimeters in length. Apatite crystals of this clarity are not often found in large sizes. Image copyright by Geology.com. What is Apatite? Apatite is the name of a group of phosphatemineralswith similar chemical compositions and physical properties. They are an important constituent of phosphorite, arockmined for its phosphorus content and used to make fertilizers, acids, and chemicals. Apatite has a relatively consistent hardness and serves as the index mineral for a hardness of five in theMohs Hardness Scale. Specimens with excellent clarity and color are sometimes cut as facetedgemstones. Those with good color and translucence are cut as cabochons. Physical Properties of Apatite Chemical Classification Phosphate Color Green, brown, blue, yellow, violet, pink, colorless. Transparent specimens with excellent clarity and vivid color are used as gemstones. Streak White Luster Vitreous to subresinous Diaphaneity Transparent to translucent Cleavage Poor to indistinct Mohs Hardness 5 Specific Gravity 3.1 to 3.3 Diagnostic Properties Color, crystal form, and hardness.

GEMSTONES(34)   Serpentine A group of minerals used as architectural, ornamental, and gem materials. A source of asbestos. Lizardite:This is a specimen of lizardite, a serpentine-group mineral. This specimen has a gemmy green color and a very smooth texture. This specimen is suitable for cutting into a few gemstones. This specimen is about four centimeters across. From Warren County, New York. What is Serpentine? Serpentine is not the name of a singlemineral. Instead it is a name used for a large group of minerals that fit this generalized formula: (X)2-3(Y)2O5(OH)4 In this formula, X will be one of the following metals: magnesium, iron,nickel, aluminum,zinc, ormanganese; and, Y will be silicon, aluminum, or iron. The appropriate generalized formula is thus (Mg,Fe,Ni, Mn,Zn)2-3(Si,Al,Fe)2O5(OH)4. Chrysotile, antigorite, and lizardite are three of the primary serpentineminerals. There are many other serpentine minerals, most of which are rare. Serpentine group minerals have similar physical properties and form by similar processes. They often occur as fine-grained admixtures and can be difficult to distinguish within arock. Geologists usually call these materials "serpentine" rather than more specific names to simplify communication. Ophiolite:Surface exposure of an Ordovician ophiolite in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland. Ophiolites are occurrences of oceanic plate and/or mantle rock exposed at the surface. They usually consist of serpentinite and associated rocks. (GNU Free Documentation License Image). Serpentinites and Serpentine Formation Serpentine minerals form whereperidotite, dunite, and other ultramafic rocks undergo hydrothermal metamorphism. Ultramafic rocks are rare at Earth's surface but are abundant at the oceanicmoho, the boundary between the base of the oceanic crust and the upper mantle. They are metamorphosed atconvergent plate boundarieswhere an oceanic plate is pushed down into the mantle. This is where they are subjected to hydrothermal metamorphism. The source of water for this process is seawater entrained in the rocks and sediments of the oceanic slab. During hydrothermal metamorphism,olivineand pyroxene minerals are transformed into or are replaced by serpentine minerals. Some of the metamorphic rocks produced here are composed almost entirely of serpentine minerals. These serpentine-rich rocks are known as "serpentinites." Extensive areas of Earth's surface are underlain by serpentinites. These areas occur near present or ancient convergent plate boundaries. They are locations where remnants of an oceanic plate is exposed at the surface. The remnant portion of the plate was either thrusted up onto land, accreted onto the edge of a land mass, or exposed by uplift and deep weathering. These areas of exposed oceanic plate are known as ophiolites. They are often the source of valuable minerals that might includemagnetite,chromite,chrysoprase,jade, and serpentine.

How To Design Your Own Jewelry

How To Design Your Own Jewelry CUSTOM JEWELRY Most people are under the impression that it is difficult to design custom jewelry. With our busy schedules the thought of designing anything can seem daunting. Visions of having to sketch and plan the creation of a piece of jewelry can challenge our talents. The truth is that designing custom jewelry can be lot easier than it sounds. It is not necessary to have special talents or spend precious time obsessing over jewelry and gems. What you need is the ability to separate the elements of design you like from those which are less appealing.

It is not always easy to find luxury merchandise that meets all of our desires. We sometimes wish something about our selection was a little different.

Our designers will organize the characteristics, colors, shapes, traits, and stones that appeal to you.

11 Proven Health Benefits Of...

11 Proven Health Benefits Of Ginger   11 Proven Health Benefits of Ginger By Joe Leech, Dietitian   | 2,500,110 views Ginger is among the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet. It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Here are 11 health benefits of ginger that are supported by scientific research. 1. Ginger Contains Gingerol, a Substance With Powerful Medicinal Properties Ginger is a flowering plant that originated from China. It belongs to the Zingiberaceae family, and is closely related to turmeric, cardomon and galangal. The rhizome (underground part of the stem) is the part commonly used as a spice. It is often called ginger root, or simply ginger. Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional/alternative medicine. It has been used to help digestion, reduce nausea and help fight the flu and common cold, to name a few. This is what ground, fresh and sliced ginger looks like: Ginger can be used fresh, dried, powdered, or as an oil or juice, and is sometimes added to processed foods and cosmetics. It is a very common ingredient in recipes. The unique fragrance and flavor of ginger come from its natural oils, the most important of which is gingerol. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for much of its medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects (1). Advertisement Bottom Line: Ginger is a popular spice. It is high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. 2. Ginger Can Treat Many Forms of Nausea, Especially Morning Sickness Ginger appears to be highly effective against nausea (2). For example, it has a long history of use as a sea sickness remedy, and there is some evidence that it may be as effective as prescription medication (3). Ginger may also relieve nausea and vomiting after surgery, and in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy (4, 5). But it may be the most effective when it comes to pregnancy-related nausea, such as morning sickness. According to a review of 12 studies that included a total of 1,278 pregnant women, 1.1-1.5 grams of ginger can significantly reduce symptoms of nausea (6). However, ginger had no effect on vomiting episodes in this study. Although ginger is considered safe, talk to your doctor before taking large amounts if you are pregnant. Some believe that large amounts can raise the risk of miscarriage, but there are currently no studies to support this. Bottom Line: 1-1.5 grams of ginger can help prevent various types of nausea. This applies to sea sickness, chemotherapy-related nausea, nausea after surgery and morning sickness. 3. Ginger May Reduce Muscle Pain and Soreness

Therapeutic benefits of massage: NetWellness

  Therapeutic benefits of massage: NetWellness Massage is a manual therapy that manipulates the soft tissues and decreases muscle tension, pain, stress and depression. However, when posing the question, "What is massage?" it is common to hear the following replies: “Massage is such a luxury." "Ah, massage, it is so relaxing." "Massage is something I treat myself to on special occasions." While all of these statements capture the idea of massage as a way to relax and to treat ourselves, none come close to touching on the essence of massage and its therapeutic benefits to body, mind and spirit. Therapeutic benefits Massage makes you feel and perform better. Massage has the following benefits: Increases circulation; enhances the immune system; promotes nervous system functioning; reduces blood pressure; relieves pain and muscle tension; improves mood, intellectual reasoning and job performance; positive effect on conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, diabetes and migraine headaches. This NetWellness column was reviewed by Dr. Tanya I Edwards, associate professor of medicine, School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University. For more information, visit the NetWellness Diet and Nutrition health topic or or NetWellness on Facebook. Previously: How much candy is OK for kids?   Depending on the techniques used, massage can: Stimulate the nervous system to help reduce muscle atrophy; increase muscle tone; stimulate the functions of the skin or an organ deep inside the body; sedate the nervous system to help ease muscle tension, spasticity, stress-related symptoms and headaches; boost the functioning of the immune system and maintains health when done regularly; stimulate sluggish circulation or slow down the circulation of someone who has just run a marathon when using friction massage techniques; allow better range of motion and support the connective tissue and muscles in becoming strong and healthy when doing simple joint movements and joint stretching. Its many healing benefits are important in our high-tech world because of our basic human need to be nurtured through touch. Touching and being touched is instinctual. For example, an injured animal will tend its wounds by licking or rubbing, a mother will comfort her crying child by stroking its head and patting its back, and a person with a toothache will rub and press the painful area to relieve congestion and pain.   The power of touch The simple act of placing the hands on the body can itself encourage a person to thrive. Many studies have illustrated that without physical touch babies (human or animal) will not thrive and may not even survive. Touch also has a positive effect on caregivers. For example, mothers who regularly have a great deal of physical closeness with their babies experience postpartum depression to a far lesser degree, and elderly caregivers feel a decrease in stress, anxiety and depression when they touch and are touched. Academic evidence A landmark study conducted on rhesus monkeys by Harry Harlow in the 1950s noted that monkeys separated from their mothers soon after birth showed a greater need for tactile comfort than for eating. Since then, many studies have illustrated how touch and massage can assist infants, especially babies born prematurely, to survive, gain weight and thrive. It has also been shown that the caregivers who massaged the infants benefited as well. Types of massage Today there are a myriad of bodywork modalities including: Swedish massage; trigger point therapy; connective tissue release; myofascial release; shiatsu; reflexology. Therapeutic massage Therapeutic massage is designed to treat a specific condition, and an licensed or certified professional is trained to assist with soft tissue injuries and dysfunctions, as well as support general recovery. Extensive training enables the therapist to take a thorough history, identify contraindications (reasons to not massage) and make referrals to and receive referrals from other health professionals such as physicians, osteopaths, chiropractors

Dandruff by user268415197

Dandruff (Pityriasis Simplex Capitis, Flaky Scalp)   The Facts Dandruff is a harmless, chronic condition that occurs when the scalp becomes dry or greasy and produces white flakes of dead skin that appear in the hair or on the shoulders. People most often think of dandruff as anything that produces a flaky scalp. Although it is harmless, dandruff can be embarrassing for those who have it. Dandruff usually starts between the ages of 10 and 20 and affects up to 40% of people over the age of 30. Causes Skin cells are formed continuously on the scalp, so the shedding of dead skin cells is a normal process. With dandruff, however, skin cells are shed at a faster rate than normal. Oil from the scalp causes the skin cells to clump together and appear as white flakes. Dandruff can be caused by a number of things, including dry skin; sensitivity to hair products; and skin conditions such as psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, or eczema. The overgrowth of yeast can also cause dandruff. This overgrowth can be

Why Do People Believe in Superstitions?

  Why Do People Believe in Superstitions? After all this modernization and enlightenment that has taken place, superstitious beliefs still persists in our societies. Everyone of us to some extent do believe in such absurd superstitious beliefs and by chance if you disagree with me then how about you check it by yourself. Are you Superstitious? If your answer is yes than you are not alone and if no then you might not want to accept it. From the dawn of human existence people have held superstitious beliefs. These are the irrational beliefs that an object, action or circumstance not logically related to a course of events influences its outcome.Now, you might be thinking that if these beliefs are false than why do people believe in such superstitions? You can get your answer to this question by the time you reach the end of this hub.  Superstitions have come a long way in history and have been evolved in this process. Every known civilization that ever existed on the planet had something common in them; these were the myths and superstitions that were a crucial part of their cultures. The word superstition is designated to those beliefs that result from ignorance and fear of the unknown. Many superstitious practices are due to the false interpretations of the natural events. Curiosity also with regard to things that are hidden or are still in the future plays a considerable part, example, in the various kinds of divination. With this qualification in mind, superstitions may be classified roughly as religious, cultural and personal. All religious beliefs and practices may seem superstitious to the person without religion. Superstitions that belong to the cultural tradition are enormous in their variety. Nearly all persons, in nearly times, have held, seriously, irrational beliefs concerning methods of warding off ill or bringing good, foretelling the future, and healing and preventing sickness and accidents. Even people who claim they have no superstitions are likely to do a few things they cannot explain. A superstition is a behavior that has no rational basis or history or a history that is long-lost. A few specific folk traditions, such as beliefs in the evil eye or in the efficacy of amulets, have been found in most periods of history and in most parts of the world. Others may be limited to one country, region or village, to one family, or to one social group. Finally, people develop personal superstitions: a student writes a good form of literary piece with a certain pen, and from that moment the pen is lucky; a horse player may be convinced that black horses run well for him.   Sources of Superstitious Beliefs Superstitions have been there, now for a long period of time. In this travel in history, people from diverse cultures have added their part of blind beliefs in them. The sources which might have been a great source for such superstitions are mentioned below: Leaders/Governments Elders Cultures Imaginative stories Scholars Myths   Superstitious Beliefs and Religion The borderline between these two words is very thin and often it has been observed that they tend to overlap each other. Religious believers have often seen other religions as superstitions. Likewise, atheists and agnostics may regard religious beliefs as superstitious. Religious practices are more likely to be labelled ‘superstitions’ by outsiders when they believe in extraordinary events (miracles), an afterlife, supernatural intervention, value of prayer, charms, incantations, the meaningfulness of omens, and prognostications. The Roman Catholic Church considers superstitions to be sinful in the sense that it denotes a lack of trust in God and, as such, is a violation of the Ten Commandments. Same is the case with Islam; it prohibits following such beliefs that are not in accordance with Quran and Hadiths. Islam refers such false beliefs as the way of Shaitan (Satan or Demon).

The Truth About Detox Diets | Berkeley Wellness

  The Truth About Detox Diets | Berkeley Wellness   If you’ve spent time on the Internet lately, read a lifestyle magazine, or watched a celebrity interview (or “The Dr. Oz Show,” for that matter), chances are you’ve heard or seen something about “detoxing”—that ubiquitous yet amorphous term that refers to various dietary regimens that supposedly clean you out, give your body a radical reboot, and help you drop weight fast. These range from one-day fasts to diets promoted by celebrities like Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow to techniques as dramatic as colon cleanses and coffee enemas. The idea of cleaning yourself out as a way of kick-starting healthier habits may be appealing, especially if you’ve been eating poorly, drinking too much alcohol, or otherwise treating your body less than optimally. But there’s no good evidence to back the “detox” concept—and furthermore, it makes no scientific sense, as we discuss below. And some of the plans could be dangerous, especially for certain groups of people. Here’s a quick primer on the detox trend and why, as with so many other things in health (and life), it isn’t the quick fix it claims to be. What does “detox” mean, anyway? Short for detoxification, the term for decades was used almost exclusively to refer to the process of withdrawal from alcohol or drugs by people addicted to those substances. In some cases, that withdrawal could bring agonizing symptoms like the delirium tremens experienced by alcoholics, or the pain and vomiting associated with kicking heroin or other opiates. Today, though, "detox" has become a catchall term for any number of non-traditional diets, fasts, or procedures that proponents claim reset your metabolism, remove unwanted pounds, and eliminate so-called "toxins" from the body. Among the best known and most extreme is the Master Cleanse, in which followers consume nothing but warm salt water, laxative tea, and a liquid concoction of lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper for 10 days. But there are any number of other plans and books, from Dr. Oz’s 3-Day Detox Cleanse ("All you need is 3 days, a blender and $16 a day!") to the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse to the

Foods For The Soul

Foods For The Soul   As a cardiologist, I am constantly being asked what are healthy foods and unhealthy foods for the heart. Much has been written about this topic: whole foods vs processed foods, organic or conventional, genetically modified foods, superfoods, essential nutrients, powerful antioxidants. Great attention is given to the foods we use to nourish and sustain our bodies, but equally important are the thoughts we use to nourish and energize our mind, spirit, and soul. Just as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts are preferable choices over hamburgers, fried foods, and donuts, so too exist preferable nourishing foods for the soul. It does not matter how physically fit our bodies are if we do not have tranquility, peace, and harmony within our souls. Lets explore some of the healthy and unhealthy foods for the soul.  Healthy foods - gratitude, appreciation, self love and love of others, laughter, joy, mindfulness Unhealthy foods - self doubt, judgement, fear, anticipation, anger, hatred  Healthy Foods for the Soul: 1. Gratitude is an expression of thankful appreciation for the benefits that one has received or will receive.  Wallace Wattles in his 1910 book, The Science of  Getting Rich, wrote “The Grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best; therefore it tends to become the best; it takes the form or character of the best, and will receive the best.  Faith is born of gratitude.  The grateful mind continually expects good things and expectation

10 Proven Benefits of Green Tea by Glory 4 Us All

  10 Proven Benefits of Green Tea Green tea is the healthiest beverage on the planet. It is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. This includes improved brain function, fat loss, a lower risk of cancer and many other incredible benefits. Here are 10 health benefits of green tea that have been confirmed in human research studies. 1. Green Tea Contains Bioactive Compounds That Improve Health Green tea is more than just green liquid. Many of the bioactive compounds in the tea leaves do make it into the final drink, which contains large amounts of important nutrients. It is loaded with polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins, which function as powerful antioxidants (1). These substances can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage. These free radicals are known to play a role in aging and all sorts of diseases. One of the more powerful compounds in green tea is the antioxidant Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which has been studied to treat various diseases and may be one of the main reasons green tea has such powerful medicinal properties. Green tea also has small amounts of minerals that are important for health. Try to choose a higher quality brand of green tea, because some of the lower quality brands can contain excessive levels of fluoride (2). That being said, even if you choose a lower quality brand, the benefits still far outweigh any risk. 2. Compounds in Green Tea Can Improve Brain Function and Make You Smarter Green tea does more than just keep you awake, it can also make you smarter. The key active ingredient is caffeine, which is a known stimulant. It doesn’t contain as much as coffee, but enough to produce a response without causing the “jittery” effects associated with too much caffeine. What caffeine does in the brain is to block an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine. This way, it actually increases the firing of neurons and the concentration of neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine (3, 4). Caffeine has been intensively studied before and consistently leads to improvements in various aspects of brain function, including improved mood, vigilance, reaction time and memory (5). However… green tea contains more than just caffeine. It also has the amino acid L-theanine, which is able to cross the blood-brain barrier (6). L-theanine increases the activity of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, which has anti-anxiety effects. It also increases dopamine and the production of alpha waves in the brain (7, 8, 9). Studies show that caffeine and L-theanine can have synergistic effects. The combination of the two is particularly potent at improving brain function (10). Because of the L-theanine and the smaller dose of caffeine, green tea can give you a much milder and different kind of “buzz” than coffee. Many people report having more stable energy and being much more productive when they drink green tea, compared to coffee. Bottom Line: Green tea contains less caffeine than coffee, but enough to produce an effect. It also contains the amino acid L-theanine, which can work synergistically with caffeine to improve brain function. 3. Green Tea Increases Fat Burning and Improves Physical Performance If you look at the ingredients list for any fat burning supplement, chances are that green tea will be on there. This is because green tea has been shown to increase fat burning and boost the metabolic rate, in human controlled trials (11, 12). In one study in 10 healthy men, green tea increased energy expenditure by 4% (13). Another study showed that fat oxidation

Massage And Pregnancy – Prenatal

  Massage And Pregnancy – Prenatal    Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to improve overall health, reduce stress, and relieve muscle tension. Massages during pregnancy have often received ambivalent responses from the health community regarding their safety and purpose. Modern investigation and research has shown that prenatal massage therapy can be an instrumental ingredient in women’s prenatal care and should be given careful consideration. Although most massage training institutions teach massage therapy for women who are pregnant, it is best to find a massage therapist who is certified in prenatal massage. The APA works with some massage therapists who are trained to work with pregnant women, but it is still important to ask about qualifications. Massage And Pregnancy: Benefits Of Prenatal Massage Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Massage therapy addresses different needs through varying techniques, one of which is called Swedish Massage. Swedish Massage aims to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body. Swedish Massage is the recommended massage method during pregnancy because it addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes brought on by hormone shifts. Hormone regulation Studies done in the past 10 years have shown that hormone levels associated with relaxation and stress are significantly altered when massage therapy is introduced to women’s prenatal care. This leads to mood regulation and improved cardiovascular health. In women who received bi-weekly massages for only five weeks, hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol (hormones associated with stress) were reduced, and dopamine and serotonin levels were increased (low levels of these hormones are associated with depression). These changes in hormone levels also led to fewer complications during birth and fewer instances of newborn complications, such as low birth weight. The evidence strongly suggests there are maternal and newborn health benefits when therapeutic massage is incorporated into regular prenatal care. Reduction of swelling

7 Herbal Teas That Will Make ... by Glory 4 Us All

  7 Herbal Teas That Will Make You Healthier     There’s nothing nicer on a cold midwinter’s day than a soothing cup of herbal tea. But besides being a tasty, warming, caffeine-free pick-me-up, herbal tea has lots of wonderful health benefits. From soothing a troubled tummy to easing insomnia and calming a troubled mind, herbs have all sorts of healing powers. Drinking herbal tea can also be a great source of vitamins and minerals. What is herbal tea? Herbal tea isn’t really made from tea-which is a specific kind of plant. The French use the word tisane, which is a little more accurate, since herbal tea is really just an infusion of leaves, seeds, roots or bark, extracted in hot water. In drinking a well-steeped herbal tea, we get all the plant’s benefits in an easily digestible form. The benefits of herbal tea ‘In a lot of ways, we might get more benefit from a good organic tea than from a vitamin pill,’ says herbalist Marianne Beacon of Elderberry Herbals in Peterborough, Ont. “You’re getting the benefits of hydration. There’s the social element: Tea is something that you can share with people. And when you’re drinking herbal tea, you get aromatherapy at the same time’and that’s something you don’t get from a tablet!’

Best Food For The Brain by Glory 4 Us All

Best Food For The Brain Eat Smart for a Healthier Brain Add these 'superfoods' to your daily diet, and you will increase your odds of maintaining a healthy brain for the rest of your life. There's no denying that as we age chronologically, our body ages right along with us. But research is showing that you can increase your chances of maintaining a healthy brain well into your old age if you add these "smart" foods to your daily eating regimen. Blueberries. "Brainberries" is what Steven Pratt, MD, author of Superfoods Rx: Fourteen Foods Proven to Change Your Life, calls these tasty fruits. Pratt, who is also on staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, Calif., says that in animal studies researchers have found that blueberries help protect the brain from oxidative stress and may reduce the effects of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Studies have also shown that diets rich in blueberries significantly improved both the learning capacity and motor skills of aging rats, making them mentally equivalent to much younger rats. Ann Kulze, MD, author of Dr. Ann's 10-Step Diet: A Simple Plan for Permanent Weight Loss & Lifelong Vitality, recommends adding at least 1 cup of blueberries a day in any form -- fresh, frozen, or freeze-dried.

Mine, Yours, Ours: The Sharing Economy

  Mine, Yours, Ours: The Sharing Economy From couches and apartments to bicycles and cars, all manner of personal items and possessions are now in circulation as part of the booming sharing economy.  Built on a premise of peer-to-peer exchanges of personal items or services, the sharing economy is a platform that provides access to said items or services (sometimes for a set period of time) meaning users avoid having to procure them outright.  The online landscape is bursting with portals of so-called collaborative consumption where people can list items that they wish to rent out or borrow such as bicycles, cars, apartments and even parking spaces. It All Began with an Airbed The boom in the sharing economy was unofficially kickstarted in 2008 when Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia decided to offer a place to sleep (on an air bed on their floor) in their San Francisco apartment to people attending an industrial design conference taking place in their city. Initially done to earn some fast cash to pay the bills, the venture proved popular and shortly after, Chesky and Gebbia set up a dedicated domain, Airbnb, allowing people from all over the world to offer accommodation in their living quarters for an affordable fee. Since then, more than 50 million people have used the site as a means of finding accommodation. A suite of like-minded businesses has sprouted since the advent of Airbnb, all of which respond to and facilitate the demand of paying for what you use on an as-needed basis. The key driving force behind the sharing economy is perceived value, with price-conscious customers seeking out more wallet-friendly alternatives to items on offer in the standard retail market. Perhaps it comes as little surprise, then, that the sharing economy began to gather haste during the financial crisis of 2008. Some outlets of the sharing economy are free (such as Couchsurfing where travellers can stay on a host’s couch for free) while others are based on financial transactions (such as Airbnb). The advent and proliferation of technology has meant that providing or seeking access to goods to share or rent is cheaper, quicker and more traceable than ever before. The ability to monetise the use of idle resources has led to a string of micro-entrepreneurs, people who have created an income stream by regularly hiring out their goods or services, including cars, bicycles, tools, clothing and even their spare time to run other people's errands, via the sharing economy.

How to Live a Good Life by Glory 4 Us All

  How to Live a Good Life Living a good life depends on what matters to you. Take the time to define your values, priorities, and goals for life. Work to fulfill the desires you want to achieve. Build your relationships and be a good family member and friend. Serve your community and mankind and stay true to yourself. 1 Make a list of what people or things matter to you. When looking for a life plan, it makes sense to prioritize some areas of your life. List all the things that you value in your life. You might list your family, friends, a certain hobby, nature, or career. Take the time to think deeply about the things without which you could not imagine living. For example, while you might like playing basketball, is this one of the most important things in your life? Perhaps it is. If not, it is likely a hobby. 2 Determine your core values. You have your own moral compass, which guides you through life. What are the values you want your life to reflect? Do you strive to be honest? Perhaps you want to be caring and considerate towards others. Maybe you have a strong sense of social justice. Defining your values will help you determine your future actions. For example, if you prize honesty, there are some careers that might not be the best for you. CIA agents, for example, cannot disclose to others what they really do. On the other hand, if you care passionately about social justice, perhaps you could consider studying social work. For additional tips, see Live Life to the Fullest. 3 Find your calling. Every person has his or her own talents and strengths. Aim to live your life in reflection of your unique calling. Finding your calling does not mean following someone else’s path.[1] Instead, seek to define what you do well and how you can live a life that incorporates your strength and perhaps helps other people as well. For example, you might be a talented teacher and musician. Perhaps your calling is to teach children piano lessons. On the other hand, you might be a great listener and care about helping others. You might be well-suited to be a psychologist. If dinosaur bones excite you to no end, perhaps your calling is paleontology and spreading knowledge about dinosaurs and environmental change to a new generation. 4 Name your goals. By making goals for life, we can live with a purpose. Do know that at any given time, your goals might change. You can adapt your goals as you move through life. If you have some structure, however, your life likely will be a bit easier. For example, you might want to become a physician. Your mini goals could be attending college, gaining entrance to medical school, graduating, and beginning to practice medicine. Each of these goals will have sub-goals. If your goal, on the other hand, is to have children, first you should think about how you want to have them. Do you want a partner with whom you can raise them? Do you prefer to adopt? What are the different strategies you can pursue to fulfill this goal? 5 Prioritize. After you have ascertained the people who matter to you, your values, and your goals, create priorities. At different points in life, you might prioritize different aspects. For example, while in school, your studies might take precedence. Later, your relationship or children might take more of your focus. By keeping your priorities in mind, you can better schedule your life. See Prioritize for additional tips.

Kiddies can soak up the fun at the children’s pool (open from 6am to 9pm), located in the main pool area. The resort offers spacious Deluxe Family Rooms, with two queen-size beds. Babysitters speak fluent English and the cost is Php300 per hour. Guests can enquire about family activities like fish feeding and underwater safaris. Shangri-La Mactan, Cebu/ photo: hotel Plantation Bay Resort and Spa (www.plantationbay.com) has a Children’s Center with all the usual games, plus a nurse available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

How to Grow Bonsai Fruit Trees

How to Grow Bonsai Fruit Trees      The term "bonsai" is usually synonymous with small, carefully cultivated trees with lush green foliage and fragrant flowers. However, gardeners can choose from a wide variety of fruit bearing bonsai beauties that yield a delicious harvest both indoors and in the garden. Growing bonsai fruit trees requires slightly more maintenance than their full-size cousins. Even those who are new to the world of bonsai gardening can cultivate a miniature orchard to enjoy for years to come.   Create the Ideal Growing Conditions Bonsai trees need the right combination of root space and nutrients to flourish. While traditional fruit trees can grow in the ground, these smaller versions need a more compact home that offers them everything they need to produce their sweet offerings. Choose a Container

How to Care for Air Plants

  How to Care for Air Plants   Air plants are quite popular these days due to the fact that they need little in the way of water or soil. These low maintenance plants can be placed in a variety of different containers and used as decoration with minimal light and care requirements. Air plants, while being hardy succulents, are not plants that you can buy and not take care of. In fact, air plants do require a bit of care, including regular watering. It’s just that they don’t require as much care as other plants that need frequent watering and high light sources. At Ambius, we are very familiar with succulents and air plants having used them in green walls we’ve installed and interior office plants throughout the world, so we know a thing or two about how to care for air plants.  What is an air plant? The most commonly used types of air plants belong to the genus known as Tillandsia. These are plants native to Central and South America and are generally grown without much, if any, soil. Some species attach themselves to other plants (such as trees), or they grow in loose sand and have very little root system. Generally, the long thin air plants that you see in stores need a little more water than the ones with wider leaves.

5 Tall Indoor Plants

5 Tall Indoor Plants Written by matt There are a number of reasons that a business or homeowner would want to decorate their space with tall indoor plants. Taller indoor plants exude the soothing feeling of shelter. People have an instinctive need to surround themselves with foliage. Also, using plants at varied heights (small, medium and tall) will help create the feel of nature indoors. Nature is random and by mixing up the size of your indoor plants your space will be able tap into the essence of the outdoors. There are hundreds of plants that will grow indoors – many being small or medium in size. The number of taller plants is somewhat limited, although there are some out there that do well indoors. Five good tall indoor plants include:  Dracaenas Dracaenas are one of the most common types of tall indoor plants. Dracaenas come in a variety of sizes, shapes and forms but it is their cane form that is the tallest. There are a wide variety of Dracaenas, including Dracaena fragrans, Dracaena deremensis, Dracaena reflexa and Dracaena cincta (formerly Dracaena marginata). Dracaenas are very popular because they are very easy to find in stores, readily available, rather inexpensive and relatively easy to care for. Another key advantage is their tolerance of most indoor conditions, including relatively low light. A few helpful tips about Dracaenas include: Be careful not to over-water Dracaenas as this can cause decline or death. Allow the soil to partially dry out in between watering. When watering, water the soil thoroughly and discard any excess that accumulates in the saucer.

The most expensive cities in the world in 2017 are

  The most expensive cities in the world in 2017 are mostly in Asia   LONDON - Singapore remains the world’s most expensive city to live in, a study showed on Tuesday, with two Japanese cities -- Tokyo and Osaka -- returning to the top 10 thanks to the strengthening of the yen. Almaty in Kazakhstan was the least expensive, followed by Lagos in recession-hit Nigeria. Only one U.S. city, New York, made the top 10 in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s twice-yearly “Worldwide Cost of Living” survey. It came in ninth, dropping two places on a slightly weaker dollar but still far higher than its No. 46 slot just five years ago. Los Angeles, in 11th place, just missed the top tier. Europe was represented in the top 10 by four cities -- Zurich at three, Geneva and Paris tied at seventh, and Copenhagen tied with New York at nine. The study bases its calculation on the price of at least 160 products and services including food, drink, clothing, household supplies and personal care items among others, converted to U.S. dollars. So a one-kilo loaf of bread costs $3.55 U.S. in Singapore and a bottle of table wine $23.68. In Paris, they were $6.81 and $10.35, respectively. In Almaty, it was 90 cents for the bread and $5.15 for the wine. “Cheap but not always cheerful,” the survey said of some of least expensive cities, which also included Bangalore in India, Karachi in Pakistan, and Algeria’s Algiers.

Sugary drinks may impact memory and diet alternati

  Sugary drinks may impact memory and diet alternatives could cause dementia   New research, published in both Alzheimer's & Dementia and Stroke indicate that drinking sugary drinks regularly may lead to a reduction in the size of the brain and poorer memory. Credit: Thanamat Somwan / Shutterstock.com Including high levels of sugar in the diet has long been known to be bad for health, having a range of adverse effects on the body, including metabolic dysfunction, liver damage and high blood pressure. Many people choose diet soft drinks in the belief that they are a healthier alternative to sugary drinks, but these too have been associated with an increase in metabolic and cardiovascular risk effects that can increase the risk of cerebrovascular disease and dementia. Data collected from around 4,000 people aged 30 years or older who participated in the Framingham Heart Study (FHS) have been analysed to investigate how the intake of sweet drinks impacts brain volume, cognitive function and memory. Almost 3,000 people aged over 45 years were subsequently monitored for the development of stroke, and nearly 1,500 people who were 60 years old or more were assessed for signs of dementia. The results showed that people who frequently drink sugary beverages, such as sodas and fruit juices are more likely to have poorer memory and a smaller brain size. In particular, the volume of the hippocampal area of the brain (which is important for memory) was reduced by excessive consumption of sugary drinks.

Can Coconut Oil Help Psoriasis Symptoms?

  Can Coconut Oil Help Psoriasis Symptoms?     If you're looking for a natural remedy to add to your psoriasis treatment plan, coconut oil gets a lot of buzz. There's not a lot of research on whether that's truth or hype, but there are reasons to think it might be another tool for your toolkit. What Is Coconut Oil? Coconut oil comes from the fruit -- white part -- of a coconut. You can cook and bake with it. And many people use it on their hair and nails as a natural beauty product. It has two forms: refined and unrefined or virgin. Refined coconut oil comes from dried coconut. The oil is taken out under high heat and then goes through a bleaching and deodorizing process. It doesn't smell like coconut -- it has a neutral odor. In the kitchen, you can use it for sautéing, stir-frying, and baking. Unrefined coconut oil comes from fresh coconut fruit. The process doesn't involve high temperatures, which is why you might see it called "cold-pressed." Virgin coconut oil smells like coconuts. You can use it to bake and cook, just like refined coconut oil, but it's best for dishes cooked at lower temperatures. Virgin cold-pressed coconut oil (VCO) is the kind experts think has the most health benefits, both as part of your diet and for your skin. Because VCO isn't processed with high heat, it keeps more of its germ-fighting power than refined coconut oil.

Women's Health Tips for Heart... by Glory 4 Us All

  Women's Health Tips for Heart, Mind, and Body Looking for the path toward a healthier you? It's not hard to find. The journey begins with some simple tweaks to your lifestyle. The right diet, exercise, and stress-relief plan all play a big role. Follow a Heart-Healthy Diet There's an easy recipe if your goal is to keep away problems like heart disease and strokes. Eat more fruits and veggies. Choose whole grains. Try brown rice instead of white. Switch to whole wheat pasta. Choose lean proteins like poultry, fish, beans, and legumes. Cut down on processed foods, sugar, salt, and saturated fat. When eating healthy, flexibility often works best, says Joyce Meng, MD, assistant professor at the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center at UConn Health. If you like to follow a strict diet plan, go for it. If not, it's OK. "Find what works for you." Tricia Montgomery, 52, the founder of K9 Fit Club, knows first-hand how the right diet and lifestyle can help. For her, choosing healthy foods and planning small, frequent meals works well. "I don't deny myself anything," she says. "I still have dessert -- key lime pie, yum! -- and I love frozen gummy bears, but moderation is key." Exercise Every Day The more active you are, the better, Meng says. Exercise boosts your heart health, builds muscle and bone strength, and wards off health problems. Aim for 2 and a half hours of moderate activity, like brisk walking or dancing, every week. If you're OK with vigorous exercise, stick to 1 hour and 15 minutes a week of things like running or playing tennis.

Does Cinnamon Help Diabetes?

  Does Cinnamon Help Diabetes?   It’s fine to sprinkle cinnamon on your oatmeal or use it in baking. Go ahead and enjoy it if you like its taste. But if you hope that it will help you manage your diabetes, you might want to pause before you head to your spice rack. It's not yet clear if cinnamon is good for diabetes. Research findings have been mixed, and the American Diabetes Association dismisses cinnamon’s use in diabetes treatment. Several small studies have linked cinnamon to better blood sugar levels. Some of this work shows it may curb blood sugar by lowering insulin resistance. In one study, volunteers ate from 1 to 6 grams of cinnamon for 40 days. (One gram of ground cinnamon is about half a teaspoon.) The researchers found that cinnamon cut cholesterol by about 18% and blood sugar levels by 24%. But in other studies, the spice did not lower blood sugar or cholesterol

Herbs, Vitamins, and More for Diabetes

  Herbs, Vitamins, and More for Diabetes Looking for more than traditional western medicine to treat your diabetes? Here are some suggestions, but remember to consult your doctor first. By Martin Downs, MPH Alternative or complementary treatments spark the interest of many people with diabetes. The prospect of having better control over blood sugar levels or being less dependent on insulin injections by taking herbal supplements or vitamins is certainly attractive. But do any of the things often touted as alternative diabetes treatments really work? First, anyone interested in going down this road should consider the difference between the terms "alternative" and "complementary." When it comes to managing diabetes, the latter is the term experts prefer. "Alternative" implies that you ditch one treatment in favor of another. Rather, if you want to look into taking supplements, you should do so as a possible complement to the treatment program your doctor has prescribed. Many herbs and vitamins have shown some promise for diabetes, but the scientific evidence for their safety and efficacy is too uncertain for experts to make recommendations about most of them. That doesn't mean that doctors are closed-minded about the possibilities. "It's not as if we know everything we need to know," says Nathaniel Clark, MD, spokesman for the American Diabetes Association. "There's always a need for new therapies and new approaches." Herbal Potential Testimonials to the medicinal powers of various herbs -- not only in advertising, but also in millennia-old traditions of Eastern medicine -- are as abundant as the flora themselves. But modern medicine demands proof, and as herbal medicine gains popularity, scientists are busy testing the possible benefits of herbs for treating many diseases. Diabetes is no exception. A recent study found that cinnamon can increase metabolism of blood glucose by triggering insulin release. In that study, as little as one-quarter teaspoon a day produced significant reductions in all patients' blood sugar levels. The cinnamon also improved the blood levels of fats called

How to Lose Weight after Pregnancy

  How to Lose Weight after Pregnancy It’s usual for a woman to put on weight during pregnancy.  But what’s important is to lose weight after pregnancy. If you have been cautious (or lucky by sheer chance!), you will need to lose only about 5 -10 Kg weight but if you had been careless (or unlucky), you may need to lose about 15 to 18 Kg weight after pregnancy. How to go about losing weight after pregnancy? Take a gradual approach. Yes, your body gained weight for a reason and it took nine months to gain all that body fat. Now, if you don’t give your body a little time, you would be in trouble. Your body needs to get ready before you start losing weight. So, don’t be in a hurry, just watch what you eat and move your body properly. In fact, in the first month after pregnancy, do not worry about losing weight. In this period, you have already lost some weight, the weight of the baby, the placenta and the amniotic fluid, you have lost all of them. You are already lighter than before. Even after this period, you will lose some weight of the extra fluid over the next few weeks. Once all these weight go on their own, it is then when you need to put extra efforts to lose weight that you gained during pregnancy. However, you should lose all that extra weight within 6-12 months after you give birth to your baby. Aim for losing 1 pound every week starting after 6-8 weeks of giving birth to your lovely baby. If you don’t lose weight within this period, you may have to retain that extra fat for longer. If your pregnancy started with a normal weight and you gained the average 25-35 pounds (about 11-16 kg), you won’t need more than 2-3 months to lose all that pregnancy fat provided you monitor what you eat and how you move your body. On the other hand, if you had been obese even before pregnancy then you might need to work more upon your body for some more months to get back into shape. Three Keys to Lose Weight after Pregnancy There are just 3 things that tremendously help you lose weight after pregnancy: Diet Exercise or physical activity Breastfeeding The first two things are needed to lose any kind of weight and not just that which is gained after pregnancy. The third one, however, is specific to pregnancy weight gain.

9 Habits Of Productive People

  9 Habits Of Productive People It doesn’t matter what you do or where you work – everyone is looking for ways to be more productive on the job. But excessive amounts of caffeine and list-making won’t get you any closer to reaching peak productivity levels today. So, why are we all so obsessed with productivity? It’s probably because in this digital age, staying on task and avoiding distraction is harder to accomplish than your actual work. Not to mention the feeling of a productive workday is somewhat euphoric. This search for a more productive workday has led to a certain misconception about what productivity really is -- and it’s a lot more than checking tasks off your to-do list. Truly productive people aren’t focused on doing more things; this is actually the opposite of productivity. If you really want to be productive, you’ve got to make a point to do fewer things. To find out the secret to a more productive workday, I spoke with project management and productivity expert Tony Wong. He provided me with some excellent insight into what he and other like-minded individuals do during their work week.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of the Internet

The Advantages and Disadvantages of the Internet   Technology can be defined as applications, instruments, or processes that enhance or simplify the aspects of everyday life. The vehicle you use to drive to work is an example of technology that simplifies life. Or, the Internet, as a whole, can be seen as technology that has greatly enhanced our lives. While the introduction of the Internet led to many benefits, unfortunately, it also came with its own set of problems. Most significantly, these problems can negatively impact your security and privacy.   Let’s address some of the advantages and disadvantages (drawbacks) of the Internet, and what you can do to keep your security and privacy intact. Electronic Communications: The Advantage: Before the Internet came into existence, to communicate with someone who isn’t in the same room as you, you would have to call them on a phone. Or if you wanted to send them a note you had to send a letter through snail mail. With the introduction of the Internet, we now have the ability to send and receive messages through electronic mail- virtually instantaneously and without the need of a postage stamp. The Problem: Unfortunately, the ability to send and receive emails also created a means for cybercriminals to distribute spam and malware. Malware hiding in email attachments could wreak havoc to your PC or possibly even create a backdoor for an attacker to infiltrate your system. Through emails, cybercriminals saw this as another opportunity to play on human emotions and lure victims into revealing sensitive information through phishing scams.

Tropical Extract Kills 80 Percent of Breast Cancer

But the road to a happy marriage is far from easy. And as today’s divorce statistics demonstrate all too well, many couples opt not to complete the journey.

How to Heal a Broken Heart by Glory 4 Us All

  How to Heal a Broken Heart         1 Get moving with a little exercise. Go to the gym, go for a jog in the park, or just get outside for a brisk walk. Physical activity increases the amount of serotonin in the brain, which acts like a natural antidepressant and improves your mood. You'll also have more energy and feel better about yourself in general.[1] Take some group fitness classes or hit the gym with a buddy. 2 Find things to laugh about. Laughter really is one of life's best medicines! Take some time to engage in activities that make you laugh. Watch films that you find hilarious, revisit some funny memes you’ve seen on social media, call up one of your humorous friends for a chat, or go see a stand-up comedian perform at a local club.[2] Try to avoid funny things that will remind you of your ex at first. Skip the film if it was one of your faves as a couple, for example. 3 Do things you’ve never done before. Whether you choose to go hiking, surfing, or dancing, take some time for yourself to do new and exciting things. Enjoy your new freedom and independence! Take this time to do all of the fun things that your partner never wanted or enjoyed doing with you. For instance, perhaps your partner never wanted to try Indian food. This is a perfect time for you to do so. Consider linking up with other people who also want to try new things. For example, you could join a special interest group on Meetup.com. 4 Change your look. Reinvigorate your look by getting a haircut, color, or style change. Clean out your wardrobe and give away anything you no longer wear. Buy yourself a few new and fun outfits. A new look can give your self-esteem a much deserved boost! Consider getting a facial, massage, pedicure, or manicure. Treat yourself! Plus, massages can help to release the tension in your body. Call up a few friends and hold a spa day at one of your homes. 5 Start a journal to record how you feel. Writing things down can be a powerful release. Write about whatever you want to write about, whether that's the breakup or any other issue you're going through. Give yourself space to vent. You'll feel a lot better after you do.

Women's Health Tips for Heart,... by user268415197

  Women's Health Tips for Heart, Mind, and Body Looking for the path toward a healthier you? It's not hard to find. The journey begins with some simple tweaks to your lifestyle. The right diet, exercise, and stress-relief plan all play a big role. Follow a Heart-Healthy Diet There's an easy recipe if your goal is to keep away problems like heart disease and strokes. Eat more fruits and veggies. Choose whole grains. Try brown rice instead of white. Switch to whole wheat pasta. Choose lean proteins like poultry, fish, beans, and legumes. Cut down on processed foods, sugar, salt, and saturated fat. When eating healthy, flexibility often works best, says Joyce Meng, MD, assistant professor at the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center at UConn Health. If you like to follow a strict diet plan, go for it. If not, it's OK. "Find what works for you." Tricia Montgomery, 52, the founder of K9 Fit Club, knows first-hand how the right diet and lifestyle can help. For her, choosing healthy foods and planning small, frequent meals works well. "I don't deny myself anything," she says. "I still have dessert -- key lime pie, yum! -- and I love frozen gummy bears, but moderation is key." Exercise Every Day The more active you are, the better, Meng says. Exercise boosts your heart health, builds muscle and bone strength, and wards off health problems. Aim for 2 and a half hours of moderate activity, like brisk walking or dancing, every week. If you're OK with vigorous exercise, stick to 1 hour and 15 minutes a week of things like running or playing tennis. Add a couple of days

This Pizza-Pasta Hybrid Is 'Worst' Restaurant Item

  This Pizza-Pasta Hybrid Is 'Worst' Restaurant Item July 31, 2017 -- A dish of pasta piled high with processed meats and a milkshake spiked with sweet liqueurs helped The Cheesecake Factory dominate a nutritional watchdog group’s annual list of least healthy meals. The restaurant chain gets a perennial pie in the face from the Center for Science in the Public Interest, which released its Xtreme Eating awards Monday. This year is no exception, with two Cheesecake Factory dishes on the list of eight high-calorie, high-fat, high-sodium items singled out by the center. The least healthy single dish on the list was the Pasta Napoletana, which takes the toppings of a meat lover’s pizza and drops them onto a bowl of noodles. All that adds up to more than 2,300 calories, plus 79 grams of saturated fat and nearly 4,400 milligrams of sodium. “Nobody goes to The Cheesecake Factory expecting a light meal,” says Lindsay Moyer, senior nutritionist at the center. “You’re going to get a huge portion of food. But the foods themselves are some of the worst as well. This dish has sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, and bacon on a pasta that’s absolutely covered in butter and cream.” What Is Actually Recommended U.S. government nutrition guidelines recommend that most women eat between 1,600 and 2,400 calories a day, depending on age and physical activity. The guidelines call for 2,000 to 3,000 calories for most men. And no one should eat more than 2,300 milligrams of salt and 31 grams of saturated fats daily. Most of the items on the Center for Science in the Public Interest’s list this year approach or blow past those recommendations in a single dish. The Cheese Curd Bacon Burger at Buffalo Wild Wings, for instance, weighs in at 1,950 calories, 53 grams of fat, and 4,700 milligrams of sodium. The Cheeseburger Omelette at IHOP delivers a full day’s supply of calories at breakfast, at

Repair Kidneys Naturally And With 1 Ingredient!

  Repair Kidneys Naturally And With 1 Ingredient! Our endocrine system is the reason why the food that we eat get properly digested with the help of hormones or enzyme. You will be amazed to know that sodium bicarbonate is produced in the kidney which helps the pancreas to dissolve the food in a right way. The sodium is generally made by the pancreas which protects the kidneys from damage. If your diet includes a lot of fatty foods, too much sugar, and fried goods, it actually tortures the kidneys and pancreas. Metabolic acidosis is a state in which people face kidney diseases due to a lower level of bicarbonate in the body. Our body fails to neutralize the acid due to lack of sodium bicarbonate which is harmful to the kidneys and other organs as well.

Encouragement for Today - August 14, 2017

Encouragement for Today - August 14, 2017 “Don’t fear, because I am with you; don’t be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will surely help you; I will hold you with my righteous strong hand.” Isaiah 41:10(CEB) He was eating a sandwich, and I was with him when it happened. He hadn’t been feeling well so when he said he was hungry, I made sure he had something to eat and stayed close -- just in case he needed anything. I was sitting across from him at the kitchen table and noticed that as he ate, something was different. Something was changing. Bite and chew. Bite and … After the next bite, his chewing seemed to grind slowly to a halt. Then, with a mouth full of food, my husband looked at me and said, “I can’t chew my food.” He seemed to be himself, but not himself at the same time. He was looking at me, but didn’t seem able to see me. He could move, but his movements appeared labored, odd and slow. I still don’t know quite how I knew what to do next. I guess somewhere in my formal education I took a class or read something that my mind remembered. I asked my husband to smile. Only one side of his face lit up. My husband is having a stroke, right in front of me, I thought. Right then and there, our lives changed forever. I got him to the hospital where he was admitted and where we would spend nearly a week so he could be observed, cared for and treated. I wanted to be with him so I found a way to make the chair next to his bed a home away from home for a while. The nurses and doctors called him lucky. They deemed his stroke to be mild and expected that after a time, he’d be able to return back to his normal life. Since that day, more days, weeks and months have passed, and we’ve learned the full impact of his stroke and what it would take for him to travel

Jim Carrey On Depression And How Suffering Leads T

  Jim Carrey On Depression And How Suffering Leads To Salvation Funny guy Jim Carrey is usually known for making people laugh. But he put all jokes aside when addressing a group of former gang members and prisoners. The actor/comedian opened up about his own struggles, and how God uses suffering for good. And his Christ-filled speech holds a powerful message we all need to hear! Homeboy Industries is an LA-based rehabilitation center led by Rev. Gregory J. Boyle. The organization seeks to provide hope, training, and support to former gang members and inmates. Homeboy Industries invited comedian Jim Carrey to speak with the group, and the actor delivered a surprisingly deep message of hope.   "I believe that this room is filled with God," Jim said right off the bat. The actor went on, calling the members of the program his heroes. He explained that by walking through the doors of Homeboy Industries, they'd made a decision to "leave behind darkness." And with that decision, they'd won Jim Carrey's admiration.   From Suffering To Salvation Jim Carrey has himself experienced some dark times. The actor's

Biblical Significance of Upcoming Solar Eclipse To

  Biblical Significance of Upcoming Solar Eclipse To 8 Christian Leaders On August 21, a total solar eclipse will be visible across the U.S. People are scheduling hundreds of viewing parties for this amazing and rare astronomical phenomenon from coast to coast. But many Christian leaders believe this event is more than an incredible scientific occurrence. Many believe it is a prophetic sign that we are living in the end times and that Christ's return is imminent.   Credit: ©Thinkstock/solarseven   Many of these leaders point to Scripture passages, particularly in Revelation, which talk about the end of the age and the signs to look out for. What do you think? Is this event truly a sign of the end times? Are you planning on viewing it?   Here is what 8 Christian leaders had to say about this total solar eclipse. 1. MARK BLITZ “From a biblical point of view, a solar eclipse is meant as a sign from God. When there is a total solar eclipse, it is a warning to a specific nation or nations depending on its path. … Could God be giving us a warning that we need to repent or judgment will be coming to the United States? The timing couldn’t be clearer!”   2. PAUL BEGLEY “I believe it is a prophetic sign."   Begley also referenced a passage from the book of Joel which says, 'the sun shall be turned to darkness' before the 'Day of the Lord come.' Somebody sound the trumpet because the eclipse may mean, 'we are living in the last days.'"   YOU MAY LIKE:

A healthy dose of it is actually a good thing. It allows us the confidence to take care of ourselves, to make wise decisions about our future, and to appreciate what others can add to our lives. Self-love gone awry, however, can become a serious problem when it leads to entitlement. Especially when we wonder if we had a part to play in making our children feel entitled.   RELATED: Proverbs 22:6 is more than just a verse, it's a promise   Maybe you thought it was cute when your toddler was protective of their toys, but now as a pre-teen they have a serious problem working in teams. Or maybe you avoided tantrums in your kindergartener by promising special rewards in exchange for basic good behavior, but now your teenager manipulates endlessly to get what they want. The simple truth is that the behavior we learn as kids is often the same behavior we exhibit later in life—only in a more sophisticated manner.

Brittni De La Mora, Found Jesus, Waited Until Mar

  Porn Star Found Jesus, Waited Until Marriage To Have Sex With Husband   Credit: Youtube/Instagram   How A Former Porn Star Found Jesus Brittni De La Mora starred in hundreds of adult films under the name Jenna Presley. She was making lots of money and was considered a star in her field. But she was anything but happy.   "I knew that my way in life was not working," Brittni recalled. That's when she met a member of XXXChurch, an anti-porn organization run by Pastor Craig Gross. Intrigued by the group's presence at an adult-industry convention, Brittni accepted the Jesus Loves Porn Stars literature and Bibles they were handing out.   "My first thought was: ‘Are these people legitimate Christians, because how can Jesus love a porn star?’ " she said. "They were so loving and friendly and welcoming. They actually just handed out the Book of John, but they put their own cool cover on it to make it relatable." It was Brittni's first step towards redemption.   Being Made New Once the former porn star found Jesus, she said goodbye to her old life.   Leaving the industry wasn't easy. But it was worth it. Brittni found a new home at a church in San Diego.   "I went into Church so broken and had come to the end of myself. I was so far down in life I had nowhere to look but up," she said in a recent blog post.   RELATED: Porn Star Heard The Word Of The Lord On A Plane And It Changed Everything   But as we know, Jesus is the Savior of the broken.

Did a Solar Eclipse Darken the Skies during Jesus’

  Did a Solar Eclipse Darken the Skies during Jesus’ Crucifixion? It’s a scene familiar from movies and even some modern translations of the Bible: As Jesus Christ hangs on the cross, an eclipse blots out the sun. But did a total solar eclipse actually darken the skies during the Crucifixion?   Credit: ©Thinkstock/CreativaImages   For centuries, scholars have debated the exact date of Jesus’ death and questioned whether an eclipse could have happened at that time.   “While most attempts to work out dates of historical events based on astronomical events can be problematical, this one is easy!” Brother Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican Observatory, wrote in an email to RNS. Wait, wait. Back up. Why do people think there was an eclipse during Jesus’ crucifixion?   Exploring The Popular Theory Three of the four Gospels that record the earthly life and ministry of Jesus — Matthew, Mark and Luke — mention that the sky became dark as Jesus hung on the cross.   “It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three, because the sun’s light failed,” according to Luke 23:44. The New American Bible even translates this “because of an eclipse of the sun.”

Mom Shunned By Friends After Her Son Was Stillborn

  Mom Shunned By Friends After Her Son Was Stillborn Speaks Out When Mary Vince of the UK experienced the heartache of delivering a stillborn son, she needed support from her friends. Instead, she was shunned. And by sharing her story, she's hoping to help break down the stigma surrounding miscarriages and stillbirths.   Credit: Daily Mail   Mary has battled chronic juvenile arthritis since she was just 3 years old. But the pain she's experienced from the disorder is nothing compared to the pain of losing a child.   RELATED: 12 Celebrities Who Know The Pain Of Miscarriage   When Mary and her husband Dan decided to try for children, Mary had to come off of her medication which helps treat her severe arthritis. Since the medication is instrumental in helping her combat the pain of her condition, Mary couldn't be off of it too long. So, the couple went through fertility testing to be sure they stood a chance of conceiving.     The results were incredibly disappointing.   "All my life, my body has been failing me. Now the odds were stacked against us to have a child. I was heartbroken and took it really hard," Mary explained. Mary suffered from a low ovarian reserve and Dan had a low sperm count. Together, that made the odds of the couple conceiving naturally very slim. But as the couple began preparing for in-vitro fertilization (IVF), they got a wonderful surprise. Somehow, Mary conceived naturally!   Joy Turns To Heartache Needless to say, they were over the moon. But at 38 weeks, the excitement came crashing to a halt.

A Pastor Explains The 4 Horses Of The Apocalypse

  A Pastor Explains The 4 Horses Of The Apocalypse The 4 Horses Of The Apocalypse   You'll often see the 4 Horses (or horsemen) of the Apocalypse dramatically portrayed in movies and on TV. But how much time have you spent studying their Biblical meaning? Dr. Roger Barrier takes an in-depth look, explaining what the 4 Horses of the Apocalypse are and why they matter.   Credit: ThinkStock   What are the 4 Horses of the Apocalypse and Why Do They Matter?   By Dr. Roger Barrier   Editor's Note: Pastor Roger Barrier's "Ask Roger" column regularly appears at Preach It, Teach It. Every week at Crosswalk, Dr. Barrier puts nearly 40 years of experience in the pastorate to work answering questions of doctrine or practice for laypeople, or giving advice on church leadership issues. Email him your questions at roger@preachitteachit.org.   Question   Dear Roger,   I asked my pastor about the 4 horses of the Apocalypse and he didn’t seem to know very much. Can you help me out?   Sincerely, Sandy Answer   Dear Sandy,   We turn on the television and see and hear about wars, wars, and rumors of wars. Earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis are daily occurrences. Our world is getting hotter just as Jesus said it would. Could we be in the final days before the second coming?   I’m glad you asked this question. Did you know that the book of Revelation says that those who read and study Revelation will receive a special blessing? So, let’s be blessed as we open its pages.   RELATED: A pastor explains the meaning of "666" in Revelations   Just before the four horsemen appear in Revelation 6, John shows us Jesus holding the title deed to earth in Revelation chapter 5. You recall that Jesus said that Satan is now the god of our world. Revelation is the story of how Jesus gets the title deed to his world back.   The title deed is a rolled up scroll sealed by seven drops of wax. As Jesus begins to undo each of the wax seals, events on earth really heat up.   The first seals are often referred to as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The term “Apocalypse,” means “Revelation.”   Credit: ThinkStock   The First Seal: The Rider On The White Horse   Revelation 6:1-2: I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals... I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.   This verse does not say who rides this “white horse.” However, it is most likely the coming Antichrist (Daniel 9:26-27; 1 Thessalonians 5:3). This rider represents a conquering power that no one can resist (Matt 24:3-6). This person is not Christ (cf.Rev 19:11-19). He is Satan's counterfeit of Christ.

But after hearing the couple's backstory, you'll see these pictures actually go much deeper than a few laughs.   Credit: Chaotic Perfection Photography   Rebecca and David will be the first to admit the photos announcing the belated birth of their 21-year-old son, Clayton Jensvold, are pretty goofy. After the pictures went viral, some folks even went so far as to call them creepy. But for Clayton's parents, the photoshoot was just as much sentimental as it was fun. The Backstory You see, Rebecca and David were high school sweethearts many years ago. However, just before Rebecca gave birth to Clayton in 1995, the two split.   Credit: Inside Edition   Both went their separate ways, each marrying different people. In fact, the two most likely would have lost touch forever if it weren't for their son. While Rebecca and David lived separate lives, Clayton kept them connected.

Miracle Baby With Feet The Size Of Pennies Overcam

  Miracle Baby With Feet The Size Of Pennies Overcame Meningitis Francesca Bradley-Curran has a big name. But when she was born at 24 weeks, she was very, very tiny. Unfortunately, she was also very sick. But God sent the premature baby with feet the size of pennies a miracle!   Credit: Mercury Press & Media   A Tiny Warrior   When Francesca was born, she weighed only 1lb 6oz. And her little body had so much to fight. "She was just tiny, and so poorly," explained Francesca's mom, Vanessa. "We were told it was hour by hour with her, and they didn't think she would survive. Her blood was full of infections."   The premature baby with feet the size of pennies had meningitis, septicaemia, sepsis, two collapsed lungs and kidney problems. The room was filled with doctors and nurses, all warning Vanessa to expect the worst.   "They were using just a finger to bring her around because she was so small," Vanessa recalled. “It took 11 minutes for her to breathe. It was torture, not knowing if she was going to survive."

Farmer's Wife Takes A Photo Of Him Eating Alone To

  Farmer's Wife Takes A Photo Of Him Eating Alone To Say Thank You   Have you ever been stewing in your own frustration, when God suddenly sends a sign that it's time to get over yourself? Katie recently shared a moment just like that on Facebook. Her hardworking farmer husband always seemed to begone, and Katie was in the throws of resenting him for it. But when she caught sight of him eating dinner alone, God opened the eyes of her heart to why he worked so hard. And her post is too good not to share!   Credit: Facebook   Katie wrote to her farmer husband:   "I snapped this picture the other night at the end of a long day. I was tired. I was irritated. I had sent my husband a text telling him that I knew it wouldn't make a difference, but I wanted him to know that I was feeling fed up with how much he works and with all that I have to do everyday by myself. The full time job, cooking dinner, bathing kids, weekend trips without him, keeping up a home, you name it I was resenting it.   Credit: Facebook   I have to have these little moments once (ok several times) throughout planting and harvest season.   Then this happened.

A Biblical Look At What Heaven Will Really Be Like

  A Biblical Look At What Heaven Will Really Be Like Many people picture heaven as a never-ending church service in the sky. Or they think we will all become angels who float around on clouds playing harps for the rest of time. Neither of these make eternity seem very appealing. And both are completely inaccurate according to the Bible.   Credit: ©Thinkstock/Andrew_Mayovskyy   In fact, heaven will be glorious and full of grandeur. We will experience fullness of joy as we live in the presence of God and fellowship with each other. There are so many reasons to look forward to heaven, I want to give you a glimpse of three. 1. In Heaven, our friendships will be richer.   One of the most fascinating glimpses we have of heaven is in Hebrews 12:22-23, a passage that provides a list of heaven’s inhabitants.   But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the generalassembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect.   Now, who in that group is boring? We’re going to spend eternity with God, with His angels, with the Old Testament saints, and with Christians through all the ages. Can you imagine being in an environment like that?   RELATED: 5 Important Things the Bible Teaches about Heaven We Often Forget   There will be no misunderstandings or tiffs or tension among us. Our relationships will be so much healthier in heaven than here. Down here we have problems even with our closest friends. You know what that’s like. Someone says something to you, and you aren’t sure how to interpret it. You react to it— perhaps overact. You say to yourself, “I wonder what he meant by that? I wonder why she said that?”   In heaven there will be none of that. Our relationships will be open, honest, interesting, loving, and uncomplicated by sin or our sinful natures. We will dwell

Man Proposes With A Ring His Girlfriend Has Been W

  Man Proposes With A Ring His Girlfriend Has Been Wearing All Year Australian couple, Terry and Anna, had only dated for a year when Terry decided that Anna was the one for him. But before the man proposed, he came up with a clever way to hide the ring!   Instead of rushing into a proposal, Terry knew he wanted to take his time and create a special memory.   “I had always loved the idea of giving someone a gift where they didn’t know its true value until years later,” Terry told People.   That's when he came up with a plan. Terry loved woodworking and knew that Anna would appreciate something he had made himself. Using Huon Pine, native to Tasmania, Terry created a wooden drop necklace for Anna. Inside was a hidden chamber that housed the secret engagement ring! Terry gave it to her as a one-year anniversary gift.   credit: Youtube / Smudha     Anna wore the necklace everywhere.  For a complete year, she unknowingly wore her engagement ring hidden inside her beloved wooden drop necklace.   RELATED: July 4th Sailor And Soldier Proposal Is Perfectly Patriotic   credit: Youtube / Smudha     Terry said he wasn't concerned that she would lose it or discover the secret until the travel-loving couple went through their first airport security checkpoint.

Rescue Dog Returned To Shelter With Heartbreaking

  Rescue Dog Returned To Shelter With Heartbreaking Letter Attached A family with four kids desperately wanted to give Rhino Lightning (Rhino for short) a good home. They brought the 3-year-old brindle boxer mix home for what they hoped would be forever. But sadly, after a few months, they just couldn't ignore the fact that it wasn't working out. With heavy hearts, they took Rhino back to the shelter. But when the rescue dog returned to the shelter, he did so with a notebook full of handwritten letters to his next owner from the heartbroken tiny human who loved him!   Credit: The Humane Society of Utah via Today   Returning Rhino was a tough decision for the family. They all loved him. But the excited pup was just a little too rambunctious around the smaller children.   One family member was especially heartbroken over saying goodbye to Rhino -- the youngest daughter. And the little girl wanted to make sure that Rhino's next owners knew just how great he really was. To Rhino's Future Owner   When the rescue dog returned to the shelter, she insisted a small spiral notebook go with him. The pages were filled with handwritten notes from the little girl.   “Hi, if you are reading this, you must own Rhino now,” the girl started. “He was my puppy. I really hope he is in a good environment. I really miss him. I wish he knew that he was a pretty puppy.”

Pastor Uses Glass Of Water To Get Grumbling Woman

  Pastor Uses Glass Of Water To Get Grumbling Woman To Focus On Jesus Every now and then, you can find some pretty good advice online. Like this little slice of wisdom circulating around Facebook. In it, a woman is ready to leave her church because of all the things she notices that are wrong. But when she shares her complaints, her pastor uses a full glass of water to reveal a valuable lesson about where we choose to place our focus.   Like many inspiring movies and books, this short story may be fictional. However, the impact that this work will have on its readers is very real. Enjoy!   Credit: ©Thinkstock/lenanet & ©Thinkstock/Sean824   The Pastor And The Glass Of Water "A lady went to her Pastor and said 'Pastor, I won't be going to your church anymore.'   The Pastor responded 'But why?' The lady said 'Ah! I saw a woman gossipping [sic] about another member; a man that is a hypocrite; the worship team living wrong; people looking at their phone during service; among so many other things wrong in your church.'

Powerful Prayers for Protection and Safety

   Powerful Prayers for Protection and Safety Events and situations that can cause great fear and anxiety fill our world. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and live imprisoned by fear.  We are promised in God’s Word that he is faithful and will protect us (2 Thessalonians 3:3).  God wants us to let go of fear and to live life to the fullest! (John 10:10) Let these prayers for protection remind you who God is and of the protection He promises when worry overwhelms you.   5 Powerful Prayers for Protection

Powerful Prayers for Protecti... by Glory 4 Us All

   Powerful Prayers for Protection and Safety 2. Prayer for protection - family Lord, I pray Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my kids (grandkids). Keep evil far from them, and help them to trust You as their refuge and strength. I pray You will guard their minds from harmful instruction, and grant them discernment to recognize truth. I pray You will make them strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day. Help them to find rest in Your shadow, as they live in the spiritual shelter You provide for them. Let them know that the only safe place is in Jesus, and that their home on earth is only temporary.  - Ryan Duncan, Culture Editor at Crosswalk.com 3. Prayer for protection - family Lord, I pray that my kids (grandkids) will develop an eternal perspective and purpose, not an earthly one.  Help them to see life–and every challenge–through Your eyes, eager and unafraid to share with others the good news of Jesus wherever they go. I pray that they will set their minds on things above, not just what’s going on here, and that they will be rooted and grounded in Your love. I pray they will come to understand the extent of Your own love for them–that it surpasses all the head knowledge they will acquire in school. I pray they will be filled up with You from morning ’til night. – Rebecca Barlow Jordan 4. "St. Patrick's Breastplate" protective prayer: Celtic monks used it to start their day. The hymn was several stanzas long, and the last two stanzas were especially memorable and moving:   Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me. Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.   I bind unto myself the Name, The strong Name of the Trinity; By invocation of the same. The Three in One, and One in Three, Of Whom all nature hath creation, Eternal Father, Spirit, Word: Praise to the Lord of my salvation, Salvation is of Christ the Lord. 5. "Priestly Blessings" prayer from Scripture: Numbers 6:22-27 is known as the “Priestly Blessing” or sometimes the “Aaronic Benediction.” There are seven requests made in this prayer.   The LORD said to Moses, "Tell Aaron and his sons, 'This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: "’The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace."' "So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them."

The Bible Verse Fused To 9/11 Rubble Exposes An Im

  The Bible Verse Fused To 9/11 Rubble Exposes An Important Message God often sends signs in times of tragedy -- we just have to look for them. Responders weren't necessarily looking for a sign from God as they sifted through the destruction following the horrific terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. But that's just what they uncovered in a chunk of rubble from the Twin Towers found with a Bible verse fused to it. And the powerful message it contained is just as important today as it was then!   Credit: Jin Lee, via National September 11 Memorial Museum Hope Found In The Devastation   While the attack on September 11 tumbled the World Trade Center in a day, it took months to clean up the destruction left behind. In March of 2002, a clean up crew was sifting through the last remnants of the south tower. And it was there that a firefighter uncovered a very special piece of debris!   Credit: The History Channel / Remembering 9/11: The Ground Zero Bible   He'd found a Bible verse fused to a chunk of rubble. In shock, he called out to Joel Meyerowitz, who was nearby. Joel is a photographer who wrote the book “Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive.”   “This shredded, burned and rubble-covered Bible came to me from the loving hands

God The Father’s Love Letter

  God The Father’s Love Letter The Father’s Love Letter is an inspiring and intimate letter from God to his child. Using Bible verses, this letter is a beautiful reminder of His love for us.    {ad_spot}     My Child, You may not know me, but I know everything about you. I know when you sit down and when you rise up. I am familiar with all your ways. Even the very hairs on your head are numbered. For you were made in my image. In me you live and move and have your being. For you are my offspring. I knew you even before you were conceived. I chose you when I planned creation. You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book. I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. I knit you together in your mother’s womb. And brought you forth on the day you were born.   I have been misrepresented by those who don’t know me. I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love. And it is my desire to lavish my love on you. Simply because you are my child and I am your Father. I offer you more than your earthly father ever could. For I am the perfect father. Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand. For I am your provider and I meet all your needs. My plan for your future has always been filled with hope. Because I love you with an everlasting love. My thoughts toward you are countless as the sand on the seashore. And I rejoice over you with singing.   I will never stop doing good to you. For you are my treasured possession. I desire to establish you with all my heart and all my soul. And I want to show you great and marvelous things. If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me. Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart. For it is I who gave you those desires. I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine. For I am your greatest encourager.   I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles. When you are brokenhearted, I am close to you. As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart. One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes. And I’ll take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth. I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus. For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed. He is the exact representation of my being. He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you. And to tell you that I am not counting your sins.   Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled. His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you. I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love. If you receive the gift of my son Jesus, you receive me. And nothing will ever separate you from my love again. Come home and I’ll throw the biggest party heaven has ever seen. I have always been Father, and will always be Father.   My question is… Will you be my child? I am waiting for you. Love, Your Dad Almighty God     {ad_spot}     WATCH: Father's Love Letter    [/slide]    Wondering where these incredible words of love came from? Check out the letter again with the Bible verses that brought it to life. How incredible the message of love God sent us through His word.     My Child,   You may not know me, but I know everything about you. Psalm 139:1   I know when you sit down and when you rise up. Psalm 139:2   I am familiar with all your ways. Psalm 139:3   Even the very hairs on your head are numbered. Matthew 10:29-31   For you were made in my image. Genesis 1:27   In me you live and move and have your being. Acts 17:28   For you are my offspring.

Officer Saves Baby From Harvey Flooding, Then Sear

  Officer Saves Baby From Harvey Flooding, Then Searches For Missing Mom As Hurricane Harvey swept through Southeast Texas, it brought with it record-breaking rains. Corporal Reed Clark was on one of the rescue crews lending aid to those trapped in the dangerous conditions. While rescuing an 8-month-old girl from the swift and intense flooding, the child's mother went missing. And the sweet officer wouldn't rest until mom and baby reunited!   The streets where Cpl. Clark found baby Paige             Credit: Today   Corporal Reed Clark of the Harris County Precinct 2 Constable's Office was part of a high-water rescue team for children with urgent medical needs. He and his partner traveled on jet skis, looking a child with asthma. The conditions were terrible.   "The water was so high that we couldn't see the street signs," he said. "I only knew to turn onto the street because I saw a light pole ... the current was picking up very fast, like rapids almost."     After getting the child to safety, Cpl. Clark and his partner continued riding around to see if any other children needed help. That's when they encountered a group of about 15 people trudging through the flooding, with the water already up to their necks.   "They were screaming, 'Baby! Baby!'" he recalled. Cpl. Clark searched the water, thinking he'd find the baby there. But the group pointed back to a woman holding up a bundled blanket.

This Hunter Was Shocked By W... by Life Is Everyth

  This Hunter Was Shocked By What He Found In The Woods. But Oh What A Wonderful Surprise! One afternoon hunter Greg Zubiak was in the field preparing to hunt moose when he saw something in the distance that was certainly far from moose-sized. Greg found a gold mine…. 20 abandoned puppies in the field.   "As I walked up, they all just kind of looked at me and I guess my moose hunt was over. I just said, 'OK, come on,' and as soon as I said that, they all come running to me," he said.   The puppies ranged from 3 - 6 weeks old and they needed extra warmth. The person the left them there dropped them off with one blanket -- but that wouldn’t have been enough. If they were left there overnight, the pooches would have most likely died from being hunted by coyotes or from the cold. Thank God that Greg took the clothes off of his back and rescued them.     "I just took off what I was wearing when I was hunting, like all my hunting stuff, and made them kind of a little place in the front of the box of the truck. They're too small to jump out so I made a little bed for them," he said.

Mom's Warning After Pumpkin Explosion Disfigures D

  Mom's Warning After Pumpkin Explosion Disfigures Daughter's Face Sweet Girl Still Healing From Pumpkin Explosion   4-year-old Chloe Garcia was having a blast carving pumpkins with her family. But all of that changed when one exploded in her face. A man was trying to show the little girl what the carving-in-progress would look like once lit up, but it wound up causing an accidental pumpkin explosion instead, leaving the poor girl severely burned. And while her story is a warning for other parents, it's also incredibly inspiring to see this sweet girl's courage!   Credit: GoFundMe page   Innocent Carving Turned Dangerous   As Halloween approached, a friend of Chloe's mom was showing the little girl how to carve a pumpkin. They'd hollowed it out, and traced a design on the outside, but had not yet begun cutting. Chloe was curious as to how the pumpkin would look once lit. So, the man scooped the little girl into his arms, and picked up the pumpkin and a butane lighter in an attempt to show her.   The man flipped the pumpkin upside down, using the lighter to create a flame inside as a preview of what to expect once the carving was complete. The little girl excitedly leaned in to get a better look, just as disaster struck.     Pumpkin Explosion Explained   What Chloe's mom and her friend didn't realize was that the fumes from the lighter had nowhere to escape from the pumpkin since a face had not yet been carved. To make matters worse, Melanie believes the lighter also had a leak in it.   “She [Chloe] was leaning over to look and it just went up in flames,” Chloe’s mother, Melanie, said. “I hear this big loud woosh noise. I can’t even describe how loud it was. It sounded like the whole house fell and caved in.”

Real-Life 'Thumbelina' Defies Doctors Who Sent Her

Real-Life 'Thumbelina' Defies Doctors Who Sent Her Home To Die When Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley was born, she was so tiny the nurses gave her the nickname 'Thumbelina.' Her small size was the result of a condition called primordial dwarfism, where growth of the limbs is delayed yet proportional. Unfortunately, doctors told Kenadie's parents that she'd only live a few days. But the tiny warrior defied all the odds. And fourteen years later, the real-life 'Thumbelina' is a pretty big deal!   Credit: Barcroft TV   When Kenadie was born, she weighed only 2.5 pounds and was 11 inches long. Her mom, Brianne, says she was perfect, just miniature. She describes Kenadie as chubby, with pink skin and bright eyes.   But doctors had a different take.     A Grim Outlook   Primordial dwarfism, which only affects about 100 people in the world, can cause all kinds of complications -- from brain damage to respiratory and digestive problems. Kenadie's doctors said the baby girl was missing part of her brain and was simply too small to survive.   "We thought we were gonna take her home to die, because that's was what they told us," Kenadie's mother, Brianne, said.   They sent her home with the expectation she would only live a few days.   It was heartbreaking news.

Firefighter Rushes to Save Girlfriend Shot in Hear

  Firefighter Rushes to Save Girlfriend Shot in Heart During Vegas Massacre God definitely brought Christina Kitcat and Kelly Culbertson together for a reason. While attending the country music festival which turned into the Las Vegas massacre, Christina was shot in the heart. And there's no way she would have survived without the quick-thinking of her devoted firefighter boyfriend!   Credit: Facebook/Christina Kitcat   Kelly, a firefighter and EMT, surprised Christina with tickets to the show as an early birthday present. But they never expected the night to take such a terrifying turn. In fact, as the gunfire broke out, the couple at first thought it was just fireworks.   "I’m like why did everyone bring fireworks? Why did everybody disperse?" Kelly recalled. But as another round of "fireworks" went off, Christina turned to him and said, "It's hard for me to breathe." Then, she collapsed into his arms. That's when Kelly realized they were under attack.   Shot In The Heart Kelly dropped to the ground and lay on top of Christina, shielding her from further gunfire. With his training kicking in, Kelly looked his girlfriend over, assessing her injuries. Horrified, he realized things were serious.   29-year-old Christina Kitcat was bleeding profusely. The bullet had gone through her arm, splintered, and then penetrated her heart and lungs. She'd been shot in the heart.   But clearly God had been preparing Kelly for just this moment!   RELATED: Agnostic Man Survives Las Vegas Mass Shooting & Becomes Firm Believer In God

She Laid Her Baby On The Airport Floor, Then The I

She Laid Her Baby On The Airport Floor, Then The Internet Lashed Out A picture isn't always worth a thousand words. And Molly Lensing -- an exhausted mom attacked online by bullies after a stranger's photo of her went viral on social media -- would likely be one of the first to tell you why.   A stranger snapped a photo of Molly and her then 2-month-old daughter in 2016 in a Colorado airport. In the picture, Molly was on her cell phone, and her baby girl, Anastasia, lay on a blanket on the floor.   Credit: Facebook   The picture outraged folks on social media, and they made all kinds of assumptions about Molly as both a person and a mother. But when they reacted so harshly to the photo, they didn't stop to think about how it only captured a tiny snapshot of a much larger picture. Exhausted Mom Attacked Online Over Photo The stranger's photo soon went viral with the caption: "Albert Einstein said, 'I fear the day that technology will take on our humanity ... the world will be populated by a generation of idiots.'" People hurled insults at Molly, criticizing her for being more concerned with her cell phone than her own child.   RELATED: Mom Fights Back Against Mom-Shaming In The Name Of Jesus   Molly had no idea the picture had been taken. She certainly never gave permission. In fact, the photo didn't come to her attention until several months later, after it went viral. A few viewers identified Molly by name in the post, and she began receiving all kinds of nasty messages from strangers calling her a terrible parent.

White Mom Births 3 Black Babies, Then Responds To

White Mom Births 3 Black Babies, Then Responds To Racial Backlash Aaron and Rachel Halbert are used to getting looks. Through a process called embryo adoption, this white mom birthed 3 black babies. It makes for a family that looks different from other families. Those differences often cause people to stare. But those differences are precisely what makes the Halbert family so wonderfully special!   Credit: Aaron Halbert via The Washington Post   A Special Calling   Aaron grew up as a child of evangelical missionaries in Honduras. So, he's been perfectly comfortable with racial diversity since a young age. Growing up in the deep South, his wife Rachel was more accustomed to seeing racial prejudice. But that all changed after she took a few missions trips to Haiti.     The couple decided early on in their relationship that adoption was a wonderful way to live out their pro-life beliefs. While trying to conceive naturally, they also began exploring options for adoption. They figured they'd leave it up to God to put their family together the way He saw fit.   "And the Lord opened the adoption door first," Rachel said. RELATED: Nurse adopts the abandoned baby with a rare birth defect she helped save   Knowing it's much more difficult for adoption agencies to find homes for non-Caucasian children, Aaron and Rachel explained how they had a heart for creating a racially diverse home. And soon they adopted a little boy and little girl, both with darker skin than their own.   Credit: Facebook   "We believe when you look into any human’s eyes, you look into the face of an image-bearer of God – into the eyes of a person whose soul is eternal. While that is the common thread of all humanity, it doesn’t mean our racial differences are insignificant. We see the human family’s varying physical characteristics as awesome reminders of God’s creative brilliance. It’s not that we think race doesn’t exist, or that we don’t see it. In fact, it’s the opposite – we see it, and we embrace it," Aaron said.

An Answered Prayer And Special Angel Saves Mom And

An Answered Prayer And Special Angel Saves Mom And Baby Kristy was frantic once she realized she and her two and a half year old daughter, Alley, were trapped inside a sinking vehicle. The only thing left was prayer as water poured in through the vents and every attempt to escape the car failed. Kristy desperately cried out to the only one who could save them -- God. And that's when something amazing happened!   Credit: The Clarion-Ledger     Trapped In A Sinking Car   Before finding herself in such a perilous situation, Kristy Irby had simply been driving down the road in Pelahatchie, Mississippi. She was on the phone with her husband when a deer shot out in front of her. The area had recently seen a lot of rain, leaving the roads wet and muddy. The sudden braking sent Kristy's car into a nosedive off the side of the road and into the swollen creek below.   As the raging current swept her car downstream, water began pouring in through the air vents and the terrified mom knew she had to get herself and her daughter out quickly, before the vehicle sank.   "I was trying to bust out the windows in the car, and I couldn't bust them for anything. I was kicking and punching, and I was praying and begging God, 'You're the only one who can save us,'" she said.  And just as Psalm 145:18 tells us, the Lord is near to all who call on Him! Right after the prayer left her mouth, Kristy says her driver's side window rolled down. But the danger was far from over. "I've got about an inch of air and I have one leg out of the window and I say, 'Alley, you've got to hold your breath, baby. We're going to have to swim,'" Kristy said. "I see her face and she's so scared, and I'm thinking, 'God, you've got to do something,' and the current is pulling us."   RELATED: Divine Intervention Used Principal To Save Students From Flood   God was already at work, though. As Kristy clung tightly to her daughter, they went around a bend in the creek and hit a tree. Kristy wrapped her legs around the tree and positioned Alley as high as she could on her chest so that the girl would be out of the water. A Special Angel Arrives
