Amazonite:
(From the Enuma Elish)

“When in the height heaven was not named,
And the earth beneath did not yet bear a name,
And the primeval Apsu, who begat them,
And chaos, Tiamat, the mother of them both
Their waters were mingled together,
And no field was formed, no marsh was to be seen;
Then were created the Gods in the midst of heaven.”

Lava stone:
(From the Enuma Elish)

“ ‘… my mighty hero,
Whose strength is great and whose onslaught cannot be withstood,
Go and stand before Tiamat,
That her spirit may be appeased, that her heart may be merciful.
Our word shalt thou speak unto Her, that She may be pacified.’
He heard the word of his father Ansar
And he directed his path to Her, toward Her he took the way.”

Ruby Zoisite

Tiamat, the Pure, the Shining
The Glistening, the Deep
Who formed all things
All powerful Mother
Upon whose bones
The cosmos is made
Life Herself

Dragon
I sing of Tiamat, the Dragon Goddess
The Untamed One
