Across cultures the butterfly is a symbol for rebirth, transformation, hope and new beginnings.
After going through a laborious transformation process from having been a caterpillar, the butterfly emerges. However, without the struggle to come out of the cocoon, the butterfly would not be able to spread its wings and fly in its full beauty.
Once out, it delights everyone and is looked upon with great joy and wonder.
But the butterfly is unaffected by it. It doesn't become prideful or arrogant. It simply does what is in its nature and thus automatically spreads the joy everywhere it goes.
Magnesite is believed to enhance visualization. It is used for purification and during meditation.
The color turquoise denotes peace, calm, fresh start. joy.
