pink stones

Prepare a picture of/book about/ any gemstone and a real pink stone in advance

Say: Look at this stone. (Show a picture of/or a real pink stone.) It is a gemstone.

Gemstones have played various roles in the myths and legends of human cultures throughout history. Some tell a story or are believed to have special powers, but all of them share a common beauty. Each gemstone is unique with a special color, birthplace and story. Gemstones come in every color of the rainbow and are gathered from all corners of the world, with each colored gemstone possessing a unique creation of beautiful color. Some gemstones have been treasured since before history began and others were only discovered recently. All precious stones are translucent and are valued by the richness of their color, except for the diamond, which has a higher value based on being colorless.

( Show the pink stone to the baby) Say: A pink stone is a piece of mineral crystal, which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments. Like other diamonds, the pink rocks are the hardest of minerals, and boost of an extremely high refractive index, making the pink crystals shine brilliantly. Pink gemstones can be used to promote love, self-worth, order and protection from violence or aggression. Carry or place pink stones around the house or office to stimulate love and beauty.

The ruby is a pink to deep red precious stone.

Rubies are said to attract good luck for the wearer. Today, the ruby has come to symbolize love and passion. Rubies were also highly prized by ancient Chinese warriors who were known to wear rubies on their armor. Most rubies today are mined in Africa and Southeast Asia.

Did you know, baby? French geologists Arnold Rheshar and Pierre Escollet have long studied rock specimens collected in different parts of the world. They arrived at quite an amazing conclusion in the end. They believed that stones have some kind of a vital activity though a very slow one. The geologists maintain the structure of stones is subject to changes, and stones can grow old. Moreover, the French claim stones can breathe, to a certain extent. Taking one “breath” takes them from three days to two weeks. And each of their “heartbeats” lasts about three days. The scientists say they gathered photographic evidence clearly indicating that stones could move. The pictures of stones were taken at large intervals. One of the stones is reported to have moved for 2.5 centimeters in two weeks’ time. The geologists stubbornly maintain that stones are living organisms though some physical processes relating to earth shove or water impact seem to be the most likely reasons behind the phenomenon!! In this case, we need to take care of Pink stones and treat them with respect because they are living things just like us, people.
