Black is one of the most important teachers, often feared by association we neglect its tremendous positive powers. Connected to the root chakra it links us to mother earth, the whole realm of the physical, the notion of survival and the achievement of positive Ego fulfillment. One of the most important qualities of black is its ability to draw from the spiritual realm into the physical. Black contains so much light, and when close to the root chakra it draws the refined energies of the higher chakras to the root, purifying, and connecting us to earthly energies.
Black color is extremely absorbent, it contains all other colours and devours light, it has always been worn in protective talismans and used as a shield, protecting the wearer from harm and negativity.
Black crystals such as Black Tourmaline, Onyx, Jet and Obsidian help us identify sources of light and energy within, allowing us to illuminate dark corners of our self and assist us in taking control of our fears.

Geometric mosaics are one of the oldest art forms used to decorate houses and temples with intricate designs originating in Mesopotamia in the 3rd millennium bc. They hold to their core, the concept of tessellation, filling a plane with geometrical shapes that allow no gaps or overlaps. They have given rise to games of recreational mathematics and jigsaws, and their geometry has traditionally been a conversation starter for philosophers. We find that mosaics remind us a lot of our world, although each piece is different in shape, color, material and size they all come together and create one single piece of art. Mosaics awaken our ability to adapt, to tolerate, to become one and connect with everyone and everything around us. They remind us that no matter our apparent differences we are all one.
