This gorgeous museum quality 22 carat bi-color tourmaline statue of Ganesha was carved with loving care from a single large gemstone by Pedro, a world-renowned artist, jeweler and shamanic practitioner, who resides in Tokyo, Japan, and set in 22 karat gold, with a brilliant blue tourmaline gemstone in the base and a glowing red tourmaline gemstone on the bale.

This extravagantly detailed carving of Ganesha, the Hindu God of Success and Remover of Obstacles, is exquisitely rendered in 22 carats of blue and red bi-color tourmaline gemstone, complete with two umbrellas, traditional symbols of Ganesha's powers of protection -- one above his head and one protecting his back. The gemstone Ganesha is mounted on and surrounded by 4.5 grams of 22 karat gold.

The value of cut crystal gemstones and collectible minerals has skyrocketed in the last five years, increasing as much as 1,000% in many cases, according to the November, 2006 edition of the Forbes Collector newsletter, and this beautiful specimen is truly a magnificent addition to any mineral or gemstone collection.

During this time of global financial turmoil, many high net worth individuals and middle class collectors are buying gold and gemstones as a hedge against potential losses from currency devaluation, inflation and deflation. Because of the increasing difficulty of obtaining high quality gemstones on world markets it is quite likely that this strategy is a prudent step in diversification of one's investment portfolio.

Properties of Tourmaline

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. 

Common tourmaline is black, and the lighter colors, such as blue and light green, 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.

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.

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.

Blue tourmaline is associated with the throat chakra, and assists the bearer in connecting with his or her own individual truth and destiny, in communicating their own personal truth to others, and in achieving success in all endeavors related to mass communication.

Rubellite or Red Tourmaline, relating to the astrological sign of Scorpio & Sagittarius, is associated with the root chakra, and helps ground and center the bearer, assisting in the overcoming of paranoia, low self-worth, and feelings of alienation. Red tourmaline exhibits a magnificent ruby violet shade and resonates with the heart and base chakras, assisting in grounding the energies of love & devotion. It can intensify any loving practices whether directed toward ones own health or in the spiritual practices of devotion.

Qualities of Ganesha

Meditators focused upon this beautiful Bi-Color Tourmaline Gemstone Ganesha Pendant will also benefit from concentration upon the many Divine qualities of Ganesha, the Hindu God of Success, also known as the Overcomer of Obstacles.

The name Ganesha derives from the Sanskrit words "gana" or "group" and "isa" or "lord and master".
Ganesha means "Ruler of the Ganas". The "ganas" were a group of semi-divine beings who were part of Lord Shiva's entourage, so Ganesha is said to be their Ruler, or "Lord of Hosts".

The word "ganas" was also used by philosophers and metaphysicians to refer to "all categories of created reality", so Ganesha is considered to be the "Ruler of All Categories of Creation", and the patron Deity of wisdom, intellectual prowess and philosophy.

Bi-Color Tourmaline Ganesha in 22 kt Gold w/Tourmaline Accent Stones

Ganesha is a familiar figure worldwide. Ganesha has the head of an elephant. According to the legend, Ganesha was the child of Shiva and Parvati. Ganesha, extremely devoted to his mother, was set the task of guarding her boudoir one day. Shiva had been away meditating on the icy crags of Mt. Kailash, the highest mountain in the Himalayas, for quite some time, and had not seen his child since he was an infant. Shiva returned home that day, and, anxious to see Parvati, tried to force his way through the door into her boudoir. Ganesh stopped him, there was a fight, and Shiva struck off Ganesha's head with his Trident.

Parvati was horrified, grief-stricken, and enraged, and demanded that Shiva immediately restore their son to life. Shiva commanded his servants to scour the world and bring him the head of the first creature they found so he could quickly restore Ganesha to the world of the living. The servants returned in a flash, with the head of an elephant, Shiva placed it on Ganesha's body, and the elephant-headed God assumed his familiar form.

Ganesha in his new form symbolizes the many positive attributes of the elephant: long memory, intelligence, perserverance, patience, endurance, and overwhelming strength. The elephant is above all a gentle giant, a vegetarian, who never kills to feed.

Ganesha is always depicted with a pot belly, as in this Moldavite Gemstone Statue. The pot belly symbolizes the bounty of nature, and also that Ganesha swallows the sorrows of the world, and contains within himself every form and category to be found in the phenomenal world.

The elephant headed Hindu God is depicted in this gemstone pendant seated upon a lotus flower throne, with four arms.

In his upper left hand he holds an axe, which symbolizes his ability to cut through or remove all obstacles on the path to spiritual realization or worldly success. 

In his lower left hand he holds a bowl of sweets, which he tastes with his long trunk. The sweets represent the essence of "sattvic" or balanced nourishment, Universal Life Force Energy in its purest form. The sweets also represent the sweetness of Self-realization.

Ganesha holds the lotus flower, symbol of spiritual enlightenment in his upper right hand , and his lower left hand is raised in the sacred gesture used to dispel fear, called the "abhaya mudra".

This statue of Ganesha shows the elephant-headed God with one tusk, in his incarnation as "Ekadanta", "the Lord with only one tusk", who exterminated Mada, the demon of drunkenness.  One legend states that Ganesha was asked to write down the epic poem called The Mahabharata, which was to be dictated to him by its author, sage Vyasa. In his humility, Ganesha realized that no ordinary 'pen' would be sufficient for this monumental task. Ganesha broke off one of his own tusks and forged a pen out of it. For Ganesha, no sacrifice was too great in the service of Divine inspiration!
