The Hexagon is a shape with deep symbolic meaning. It is seen as a symbol of harmony and balance, as it is symmetrical and evenly proportioned. Hexagons are found in many sacred shapes, including the Flower of Life, which is an ancient symbol that can be found in architecture and art around the world. Hexagonal patterns are also common in nature, as they are efficient and strong. Honeycombs, for example, require less wax to construct than other shapes, and they are very resilient to compression.

Tourmaline paraiba is a gemstone that is prized for its unique blue color. The stone is named after the Brazilian state of Paraiba, where it was first discovered in 1989. Unlike other tourmalines, which are typically green or pink, paraiba tourmaline gets its distinctive hue from trace amounts of copper. While the stone is found naturally in a variety of colors, the most desirable shade is a vibrant bluish-green. Due to its rarity and beauty, paraiba tourmaline is one of the most expensive gemstones on the market. In recent years, scientists have developed a method for creating synthetic versions of the stone in the laboratory. By using high-pressure methods and adding copper to the mix, it is possible to create lab-grown Paraiba tourmaline that is chemically identical and equally vibrant as its mined counterpart.
