Sunrise shells are among some of the most unique and rare shells in the world, found only in Hawaii. It is said that sunrise shells cary healing energy and promote blessings of happiness, hope, strength and protection to those who wear them. The sunrise shell is a member of the scallop family and lives at depths in excess of 150' deep. It is so named because it is most often found in the surf at first light, or sunrise, and the shell's coloration displays the many vivid colors seen in the brilliant Hawaiian sunrises.
It’s believed that no two tourmaline stones have the exact same color and it’s historically revered as a “magic” stone that is capable of protecting whoever wore it. Although it might be a stretch to say tourmaline has supernatural powers, it does have the uncommon and very special ability to generate an electric charge and emit negative ions and far infrared rays. Far infrared rays are invisible waves of energy. They’re able to penetrate all layers of the human body and reach the inner-most regions of tissues, muscles and bone. Through this, far infrared rays and negative ions gently soothe, stimulate and detoxify the body and mind and are able to boost the immune system.
