The central shape is a diamond with rays extending out to create a positive and protective aura. 

Created under immense pressure, a diamond is made from carbon - the base element of most matter. After great energy is created and absorbed while under pressure, the deep, black carbon is transformed to reveal one of the most desired stones for its clarity and ability to reflect light. The diamond symbolizes both a spiritual and literal manifestation of becoming clear, reflecting light as we rise above pressure.

 Native Americans used the diamond as a symbol of the butterfly, representing transformation and metamorphosis - a process necessary in order for growth and spiritual enlightenment.

Often these mini pieces make it to personal altars or hung in places that we see everyday. These symbols are like mantra or totems, used to remind us of what we choose to not forget.
