This stunning, virtually water-clear deep lavender colored Rose de France Amethyst Radiant Heart Pendant is crowned with a gorgeous, sparkling Aquamarine gemstone. Rose de France is the name given to a very popular form of amethyst from Brazil that is generally an extremely light lavender color. This specimen has a beautiful lilac coloration.
This pendant is both a Lightworker's power tool and gem aficionado's collector's item. Most amethyst is highly included, so it is very rare to find amethyst that is this clear. This stone is set into a sterling silver setting which allows the stone to breath, and hangs on its sterling silver chain right on the thymus between the throat and the heart chakras, offering protection to the whole body resonating through the compassionate heart.
The Radiant Heart pendant is a beautiful cut from the creators of the Flower of Life and Magician Stone pendants, who call it an "evolutionary tool to assist us in expanding our ability to hold and create Unconditional Love, so that we too may 'crystallize' the wisdom of the One Heart that unites all life in Love."
The Radiant Heart pendant resembles a crystal lotus whose myriad flower petals hold and reflect brilliant light, giving the stone the appearance of a kaleidoscope.
The combination of Amethyst and Aquamarine energizes and activates the throat and crown chakras, enhancing the bearer's abiity to communicate spiritual truths and facilitating the ability to connect to inner spiritual guidance.
Amethyst is the gemstone variety of quartz, produced by the presence of manganese in clear quartz crystal.

Amethyst has been popular with royalty, sages, mystics and magicians for centuries.

“Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst was able to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence,” according to the ICGA website.
“Because amethyst was thought to encourage celibacy and symbolize piety, amethyst was very important in the ornamentation of Catholic and other churches in the Middle Ages. It was, in particular, considered to be the stone of bishops and they still often wear amethyst rings,” continues the ICGA. “In Tibet, amethyst is considered to be sacred to Buddha and rosaries are often fashioned from it.”
Amethyst is said to enhance spirituality, raise the vibrational level of the holder, cleanse the astral, etheric and physical bodies, and produce a peaceful, tranquil state of mind.
