1. For Zodiac Ox
Each zodiac has it's own secret friend, and Rat is the secret friend of the zodiac Ox. Wearing your zodiac secret friend help bring resources and helpful people. Especially for those who are trying to advance in their career or going through a difficult period.

1a. Zodiac Guardian
And every zodiac has an affinity to a specific Buddha or a Bodhisattva. Literally translated as Natal Buddha or Zodiac Guardian (本命佛, 通称生肖守护神). In Tibetan Buddhism, there are a total of eight Natal Buddha derived from the Twelve Nidānas (十二因缘), Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches (天干地支), and the five cosmic elements (地,水,火,风,空). Carry your own zodiac guardian is very beneficial. Their presence instantly bring peace and serenity to your surrounding. Establish a 'connection' by frequently calling out your guardian's name in silence. Having your guardian near you gives you protection because all surrounding spirits residing in your space has the highest respect for the Buddha and Bodhisattva. And when you invoke their protections, they give you safe refuge from anything harmful attempting to enter into your space.

1b. Zodiac Ox's Guardian (生肖守护神)
Akasagarbha Bodhisattva (虚空藏菩薩)
Is one of the eight great Bodhisattvas. His name can be translated as "boundless space treasury" or "void store" as his wisdom is said to be boundless as space itself. He is sometimes known as the twin brother of the "earth store" Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva (地藏菩萨), and is also mentioned in the Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva Pūrvapraṇidhāna Sūtra (地藏菩萨本愿经). His emblems are the sword and cintamani (or wish fulling jewel). He is sometimes shown with his right hand in the varada mudra. This represents the giving of wisdom, creativity, and dispel ignorance. As stated in the sutra of Akasagarbha Bodhisattva Sūtra (Sanskrit)《虚空藏菩萨经》: In time of danger, by calling out to Akasagarbha 'NA-MO-XU-KONG-ZANG-PU-SART' (南无虚空藏菩萨) continuously, will invoke his protection.

2. For Zodiac Rat
Wearing your own zodiac helps to curb with the negative traits and enhance the good positive traits. The Rat in it's negative traits tends to be:
- aggressive and talkative,
- mean and narrow-minded
- stubborn and greedy,
- spendthrift and devious.
This necklace helps to enhance the good positive traits:
- Intelligent and sociable,
- charming and meticulous,
- artistic and eloquent,
- shrew and industrious.

2a. Akasagarbha Bodhisattva (虚空藏菩薩)
Is not the Zodiac Rat's Guardian. However, Akasagarbha Bodhisattva is said to remove obstacles, helps people recognize & overcome their errors, one who encourages the practice of the Six Perfections (六波罗蜜), and one who fulfils all wishes. His mantra helps improve one’s Memory (增强记忆).

3. Green Onyx (8mm)
Also called green chalcedony.
It is said to brings the mind, body and spirit into alignment. It helps release negative emotions such as sorrow, grief hostility, and also helps defend against negativity vibes. It promotes feeling of generosity, benevolence and enhance self-confidence.

4. Labradorite (8mm)
Is the gemstone of magic. It awakens and enhance one's innate mental and intuitive abilities. Despite its dark outer appearance, it holds a rainbow of brilliant hues visible only when the stone is held in the light. This effect mirrors the energy of this ally, which enables one to move through the unseen realms while purifying one's energies in the light. It also creates a force filed through the aura, protecting and strengthening the energies within. It is said that wearing as earrings enhance one's hearing of one's spirit guide.

5. Red agate (10mm)
Same as tawny agate, also known as Fire agate is a stone of courage, protection, and strength. It relieves fears, halts gossip. Fire agate can help with spiritual advancement and progression, it promotes and enhances energy, including meditation, ritual, and healing energies. It also said to alleviate hostilities and promote goodwill. It provides a calming influence, improves perception, concentration and helps to develop and increase one's analytical talents.

6. Black Karakax jade (carved pendant, 35x22mm)
Also called dark jade, or XinJiang Inked jade. It is a nephrite. (新疆墨玉, 软玉).
As its Chinese name implied, it is of a very dark black ink color. A good piece of Karakax jade is mostly opaque and looks black. It only reveals its attractive green colour under flash light illumination. As shown in the pic, i have illumination from the back to show its natural green. Please note that this stone naturally does not have a watery dewy lustre of a Jadeite. It needs to be nurtured by the wearer. Please note that white specks, chips and cracks are natural stone occurrence and not to be considered as flaws. However, the white specks will not be obvious after the stone has developed its natural lustre. This stone is more suitable for a true jade collector, or someone who know how to nurture a jade stone (养玉). It needs to be in a pair of good hands.

6a. Nurturing Karakax jade
In the Chinese ancient text, it is said that human nurtured jade and jade will nurtured human in return. Human nurtured jade for three years and the jade will nurtured the human for life (人养玉,玉养人. 人养玉三年, 玉养人一生). Jade will nurtured human in form of it's mystical healing properties. This jade is preferable to be in contact with our skin. Hold it in our palms and gently buff it. After a certain period of time, this stone will slowly reveal a dewy lustre that is nurtured by our warmth and oil. And this natural lustre is permanent. A well nurtured stone is very beautiful. So each piece will lustre differently depending on it's owner. This is how the value of the pendant will be increased. Above are just superficial info, there are more into nurturing a jade stone, and it is also considered a field of expertise. (养玉是一门学问.)

6b. Care for Karakax jade
Nephrite is a delicate and soft stone, it needs tender loving care. It has to be kept in jewelry pouch when not in use to prevent any possible collision, because it is not a hard stone. And water is bad for this stone, it cannot be soaked in any form of liquid. It has to be cleaned gently with a damp white cloth. Please clean gently to prevent possible scratches. Again, this stone need to be in a pair of good hands.

Please wear the necklace with a good heart; good fengshui is driven by your good thoughts and good motivation. (人为恶, 祸虽未到, 福已远离. 这是自然规律.)
Zodiac enhancer necklace will be cleansed in singing bowl before shipping.

Beautiful bracelet. This is indeed a seller who practices mindfulness. She wrote a "Thank you Postman" on the envelope. It shows gratitude to others. Nice to know she practices what she says.
