CZ Diamond Stones
Black Onyx stone will allow a better flow of positive energies which will make you feel lighter, more vibrant & energetic. Giving you strong support especially when you’re experiencing difficulties in your personal or professional life. It’s a strong & protective stone that will help you when you’re facing your adversaries in any kind of conflict by acting as a defensive stone. It will deflect any threat or negative energy aimed at you while giving you the guidance to achieve all your goals & accomplish your tasks.
Smoky Quartz enhances your ability to relate to the concrete world because of its ties to your root chakra. Like all dark stones, one of the key strengths is their ability to banish negativity. It “absorbs” the bad vibrations of negative energy surrounding you, leaving the way clear for you to improve your life.
If you are someone who struggles with depression, anxiety, or jealousy, then wearing a piece of Smoky Quartz, especially in situations where those feelings are unusually strong, can be a powerful way to get to the root of your problems without allowing your negative emotions to overwhelm you. Because of its link with the earth, this wonder stone is said to have a unique ability to block the psychic “buzzing” caused by being around smog, electronics, and other people.
Tigers Eye is a good stone to have to release your fears & anxieties. It’s the stone that can give you courage, strength of mind & self-confidence to tackle anything that will come your way. It will help you accomplish your goals because your focus & creativity will be greatly enhanced. You will be filled with confidence & optimism, & all feelings of lack or being incomplete will be dispelled.
Together with Hematite keeping you well-balanced, this handcrafted stone bracelet will give you the motivation & confidence you need to strive for success while ensuring a safe journey.
The organization's namesake, Ali Forney, was a gender-nonconforming teen who fled his home at 13. He entered the foster care system where he bounced around to several homes, and was beaten & abused. Ali ended up living on the streets at the age of 15. Ali was dedicated to helping other young people & publicly advocated for the safety of homeless LGBT youth. Tragically, in December of 1997, Ali was murdered in Harlem—shot in the head & left for dead.
Committed to saving the lives of LGBTQ young people, in 2002 Carl Siciliano founded the Ali Forney Center (AFC) in memory of Ali. Since AFC's launch with just six beds in a church basement, the organization has grown to become the largest agency dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youths in the country—assisting nearly 1,400 youths per year through a 24-hour Drop-In Center which provides over 70,000 meals annually, medical & mental health services through an on-site clinic, and a scattered-site housing program.
Their mission is to provide LGBTQ young people with housing & a continuum of supportive services to help them thrive & prepare them for independent living.
AFC has been heralded for its full continuum of care approach to services for LGBTQ homeless youth. AFC's founder, Carl Siciliano, was named a White House Champion of Change by President Obama citing the wide recognition AFC's programs have received for their quality & innovation.
5% of the selling price of every bracelet will be donated to Ali Forney Center.
