It is dark and monochromatic but full of life and the remembrance of life: the fossil sand dollar attests to it. And the deep clay weight, like a fossil pear.
It is memory, softened by the flow of time and the elements: the softly matted river stones.
It is the weight of magic: the scarab, sign of eternal life emerging from death. And the BashaBead, which is magic crystallized in glass. And the swirling spiral eye charm, which chases evil from among us.
And the tourmaline shard - that sends darkness upon Darkness, dispelling demons.
Finally the Scorched Earth leaf. Charred but perfectly intact.
