This fabulous new Labradorite Amphora Pendulum from India is crowned with a rich, deep, ruddy red garnet Cabochon set in sterling silver combined with a dollop of copper to create a unique, highly reflective patina. This lovely hand-crafted Labradorite pendulum has great energy and feels really good in hand. You can definitely tell that each piece is hand-made and that adds to their charm and power.
Beautiful form & stones! Great spin! Its tapered and elegant shape is the perfect size and weight. It comes with its own silver chain.
Labradorite is a wonderful gemstone, a member of the feldspar family that is slightly harder than quartz crystal, and which fluoresces well, displaying yellow striations under black light.
Most important for jewelers, Labradorite displays chatoyancy, or that reflective quality of irridescence or fire-like light which is found in such gemstones as star sapphire, moonstones, opals & tiger eyes. The word “chatoyancy” is coined from the French "œil de chat," meaning "cat's eye."
Gemstones display chatoyancy because fibrous inclusions within the stone cause light to reflect in a coherent fashion – perpendicular to the fibrous inclusions in the mineral – creating streaks of bright light across the surface of the stone always running perpendicular to the direction of the fibers. The effect is like light on silk or (nearly) still waters.
Energetically, I have found Labradorite to be very centering. It seems to assist in gently aligning soul purpose with clear intellect & the emotions.
I wear Labradorite when there is a lot going on in my life & I need to stay focused on what is most important. I find it to be a wonderful Soul assistant when I need to focus on many planes of existence.
I also feel that it is easier to think clearly when I wear Labradorite, if I am feeling a bit scattered. It helps to ground my electrical energies so that I am able to focus more clearly in order to find a grounded centering point, from which to approach the many influences which serve to distract me.
According to Melody, Labradorite protects the aura, helping to keep it clear, balanced & "free from energy leaks". She further states that it "symbolizes the moon and helps on to advance, without constraint, through the cycles of progression, heralding the arrival of ascension. It also symbolizes the sun, providing for vitality and for a sense of 'self' during transitions, and promoting refinement of action and discernment in direction."
Garnets are vitreous, translucent gemstones with a hardness rated significantly above quartz crystal, characterized by the presence of aluminum and manganese, which imparts their striking reddish orange color. Garnets have been used for millennia in shamanistic healing and spiritual traditions across the globe, by Native American Indians, Aztecs, Mayans, and African medicine men and healers. Garnet is also one of the stones found in the breastplate of the Israeli High Priest in the Old Testament.
Garnets are manifestation stones, stones of abundance, helping to empower the bearer to successfully create his or her own reality according to their True Will. Garnets typically are used by spiritual healers to transmute negative energy or stuck energy within a sick person into healthy energy, and to restore the proper flow of life force energy throughout the individual's body.
The red-orange color of the garnet indicates its affinity with the root chakra, normally associated with the color red in the Western chakra system, and with the second chakra, normally associated with the color orange in the Western system. In addition, this garnet works to energize the "hara" center, located about two fingers width below the navel, which is the location where the individual's "chi", "prana" or universal life force energy is stored.
The garnet works to equilibrate, cleanse and energize the root chakra and the second chakra, grounding the bearer, strengthening the bearer's self-confidence and sense of physical security, enhancing the sexual energy, the flow of kundalini, and the store of universal life force energy in the physical body.
You can be sure that this pendulum will help you attain a clear mind connected to the Divine and obtain a compassionate, answer to any questions you may ask.
