This Merlinite Rosey Landscape Pendant w/Green Tourmaline Gemstone is a unique, beautiful artistic creation and a formidable Lightworker's Power Tool. Set into an artisan created white gold hand burnished bezel setting with a unique bale.
Look deep within this pendant and enter a fairtytale Zen landscape. A lovely soulful Brazilian Tourmaline Gemstone floats like a miniature glowing flower above a spare, beautifully delineated rose-filled landscape -- all floating in a soft ice-gray hued dreamscape of radiant beauty formed by a natural Brazilian Dendritic Quartz crystal, also known as Merlinite and framed by a burnished silver setting. It looks like a rosebush on a snowy day in early spring in New York.
This beautiful Merlinite and Green Tourmaline gemstone pendant comes from the private collection of Brian Cook & Kendra Grace of Nature's Geometry. California-based geologist and gemstone artisan Brian Cook designed this beauty based upon many years of experience with fine Brazilian gemstones. Brian and his wife Kendra operate a mine and lapidary facility in Brazil.
The combination of Merlinite and Green Tourmaline operates as a super-conducting antenna, tuning us in to the angelic beings, the devas and elementals and nature Spirits that optimize and equilibrate plant growth around our blue-green planet. This powerful healing pendant also works to soothe the wounded heart and create a sacred, safe space in which we can open ourselves to unconditional love and experience the compassion that heals the wounded heart of the world.
Dendritic Quartz, or Merlinite, contains plant-like biomorphic formations that resemble the branches and leaves of trees and shrubs. The word “dendrite” comes from the Greek word “dendron” meaning “tree.”
As the quartz crystal was growing over long periods of geological time, tiny fissures formed along a horizontal plane within the crystal, and colorful minerals such as, most commonly, brown or black manganese or hematite, migrated into the crystal from neighboring rock formations comprising the crystal’s matrix.
These new colorful mineral inclusions enter into the minute fissures within the crystal and spread out in a pattern very similar to the amazing forms seen on a windowpane during a hard winter frost.
The end result over hundreds of thousands of years is a beautiful quartz crystal with a highly filigreed mineral landscape locked inside.
Crystal healers and meditators use Merlinite to connect to the nature spirits and angels that govern and nurture the plant kingdom, to energize gardens and crops, and to help the individual to learn how to “talk to the plants”. Dendritic quartz helps one obtain information coded into the sacred geometry and energetic essence of all plants, herbs, trees and flowers.
Merlinite is thus a manifestation stone, a stone of abundance, and magnetizes the bearer, enhancing their ability to attract wealth, health, and spiritual gifts into his or her life.
Dendritic quartz can also be used in the treatment of nervous system and skeletal disorders, since it works on all those systems of the body which, like the leaves and branches of the tree, serve to support and nourish the entire being.
On a more subtle level, Merlinite helps the bearer to maintain equilibrium in a period when one’s life path presents a tangled “forest” of possibilities, and facilitates clear thinking and spiritual guidance which are necessary to enable the highest form of discernment, enabling the bearer to understand complex situations and to choose the one path forward which will be for the best and highest good of all concerned.
Tourmaline is the name given to a family of minerals forming hard, slender vertically striated prismatic crystals, often hexagonal or rhombohedral in shape, with a high specific gravity, classified as complex aluminum borosilicate.
Like quartz, tourmaline crystals will generate an electrical charge when pressure is applied in the direction of the vertical axis. This is called piezoelectricity. In addition, some tourmaline will generate an electrical charge when heated.
Common tourmaline is black, and the lighter colors, such as green and blue, are much more rare. The colors in the stones are created by the presence of various metallic ions such as iron, titanium, chromium, and others. The various colors of tourmaline are associated with the seven primary chakras within the human aura.
Green tourmaline, also known as a Brazilian Emerald, is associated with the heart chakra. Green tourmaline helps us to see with the heart, to combine a masculine strength with compassionate creativity, and to facilitate the study and practice of agriculture and herbalism for nurturing and healing. Wear this color to help when communicating with devas and nature spirits. In addition, green tourmaline is said to help connect the heart with the third eye, facilitating clairvoyance and fostering a deep experience of Unity with Universal Creation.
Tourmaline is the birthstone for the month of October and the Zodiacal sign of Libra. In ancient Hindu tradition, the tourmaline is a stone of motivation, which impels the wearer toward the good, and a "teller" stone that gives insight in times of duress and can identify sources of distress in the wearer's environment.
Shamanic practitioners in African, Native American and Aboriginal tribes have used tourmaline for centuries to provide protection from physical danger and to amplify healing powers.
