We're thrilled to introduce you to a curated selection of crystal curiosities inspired by the rich heritage & treasures of the Philippines. We invite you to view the exquisite pieces that as they become available. Consider this your window into the world of ANI – a sneak peek into the rare specimens & gemstones from around our colorful world. Be among the first to explore our collection.
The word "ani" originates from Visayan region of the Philippines. In the local language of Cebuano, it signifies the essence of "harvest" or "yield," a word deeply rooted in the rhythms of nature's bounty. ANI represents the abundant blessings that sustain communities this time of year, from the lush fields of rice patties to the fruits of their labor.
This collection embodies a broader concept beyond the literal harvest. It symbolizes the gifted harvest – the rich traditions, stories, & wisdom that have been passed down through generations. ANI is a celebration of abundance, not only in terms of nature's offerings but also in terms of the cultural & spiritual wealth that our ancestral roots provide.
ANI is not just a word; it's a bridge that connects us to the origins of the Manobo people of the Philippines – the largest thriving tribe in the entire island nation. This collection is a tribute to these roots, each piece curated to honor the spirit of our ancestors.
Speaking of which, after months of receiving an influx of channeled downloads, serendipitous signs, & direct divine guidance, the ancestors could not have been louder or prouder in this project we didn't know was yet to come! Let's just say we finally trusted in that guidance to bring to you what has become an evolution of ourselves & ultimately, our brand.
As we delve deeper into the story of ANI, we arrive at a chapter that is as cosmic as it is cultural. ANI, a word rooted in the harvest season, also finds inspiration in the celestial rhythms of eclipse season. These cosmic events, where the sun & moon align in perfect harmony, have long captured the human imagination. They symbolize moments of surrender & transformation, where the ordinary transforms into the extraordinary.
The collection draws inspiration from this celestial dance. We connected with each earthly treasure & listened as they wanted to be chosen - curated with the intention to channel the supportive energy of eclipse season & symbolizing a time of renewal & alignment with the cosmos. The crystals that come to find you serves as a reminder that, like the celestial bodies, we too can embrace alignment with the rhythms of the universe.
