This sweet elephant is carved from green aventurine, imbuing the heart with strength and wisdom.
The elephant is considered a very lucky animal symbol. It is said that an elephant by the front door protects the home from bad luck. Elephants walk almost noiselessly with a fluid grace that is contrary to their size. Elephants teach of not only strength but of wisdom too. They teach one when to walk softly and when to make their presence known. Their hearing, smell, taste and touch is acute compensating for poor eyesight; therefore, elephant totems speak of intuition. They assist one to work on gathering and responding to information sensed by means other than sight. Elephants teach one loyalty and respect.
Blue Aventurine is considered important to enhancing male energy in both males and females. It increases "positive" (masculine) polarities. It is therefore considered a gemstone for increasing physical strength and vitality. Blue aventurine is said to provide patience, eliminate stubbornness, control excitability, and to give a deeper understanding of the cause and effect in situations thus allowing one to more fully understand and to find the optimum solution.
