The Jungian approach is one of depth, of delving beneath the surface of what is familiar - for example, habitual ways of thinking and responding to life's problems and challenges that, although outworn, resist efforts to change - to discover unfamiliar and hidden resources within. At this deeper level of knowing exists the wisdom for change, for healing and growth, and fuller development.
The mystery the stone symbolizes at one's core - that the unseen and devalued parts of self contain knowledge of great value - when touched by a reflective consciousness, promotes an inward journey of self discovery and offers the potential for a fuller experience of self and of meaning in one's life.
