No Frog Kissing Required
Once upon a time there was a Princess who purchased a beautiful, chunky Jade + Amethyst bracelet from a village artisan.
She learned from the artisan that because Jade connects to all the physical chakras, it assists in soothing the emotional body, releases fear of change and helps to create a positive outlook. She also learned that Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification, that it's physically beneficial, and that it acts as a barrier against unhealthy environments.
These elements AND it was lovely? What Princess wouldn't want all that?! As you can imagine, wearing the pretty jeweled trinket made her very happy!
One day, as she was walking along a path beside the palace pond she came across a warty frog who croaked at her:
"Princess! If you kiss me, I'll turn into a handsome Prince. We'll marry and I'll cover you in the most amazing jewels from around the world!"
Because she was a perfectly reasonable, smart, and truly kind woman she gave the offer some serious thought. She could see the benefits and drawbacks of the frog's offer. It was then that her lovely new bracelet caught her eye... and she knew what her answer would be.
"Thank you good Frog Prince for the generous offer, but No... I can cover myself in jewels all by myself, support my local artisans and makers so that my kingdom flourishes, and make both myself and my people happy."
And so she did.
