What Stone is used to make peaceful Stone Lights?

Peaceful Stone Lights are carved LUMINITE a very rare form of semi-precious stone that serves as a gentle amplifier of light.

Exclusive to a remote region of the the United States

Luminite is millions of years old (we know it was formed between 251 Million and 500 Million years ago. 

The patterns within the stone were formed under pressure and heat and are not man made. We carve them to allow for the natural beauty to shine thru.

Luminite’s golden light brings a spa-like tranquility and calm to all environments.

 

How are peaceful Stone lights different from HIMALAYAN Salt lamps?

A few major differences are that salt does cause allergic reactions in some people as it interacts with the air, it also is known for melting, puddling, and being “slimy” and does also flake away over time. It is a temporary stone at will disintegrate over time.

Luminite is a semi-precious stone it is hypoallergetic, it feels smooth and soft to the touch, is unchanging over time. You get the benefits of having ancient earth energy. Once carved it stays just as it is for a lifetime and beyond, making it a treasured family heirloom for generations. All of the beauty, memories, intention, gratitude and care that you share with this stone will be there for future generations to feel and be nurtured by.
