This AAA quality oval cut 1.5 inch high, 35+ carat Namibian Amethyst gemstone pendant, set in 14 karat gold comes from our personal collection. We had it fabricated in 2007, according to our specifications, from jewelers in Manhattan who are our personal friends, but the time has come to release this unique pendant into the world to find a new home. 

Large Namibian Amethyst Oval Pendant in 14 karat GoldThis museum quality amethyst gemstone, from the Brandberg region of Namibia, is rated "extra fine" by mineralogists, because it exhibits highly saturated "grape jam" purple coloration, with rich red and some blue highlights and dark tones overall. This gemstone is totally water clear to the eye, and is cut and faceted with great depth for its size, allowing for deeper color and more "bling" as the faceting on the back side is increased with deeper stones.

Over the last decade, the availability of amethyst gemstones of this quality from Namibia has diminished radically, with fewer finds reaching the global marketplace. 

We had this remarkable Namibian Amethyst gemstone set in an unobtrusive 14 karat gold basket setting designed to allow the stone to "breathe" on the back side, yet remain protected during typical conditions. The back side of the stone will actually touch the chest through the basket setting, allowing the energy of the stone to directly interact with your body. This pendant comes in a velveteen jewelry box for safe keeping.

Large Namibian Amethyst Oval Pendant in 14 karat GoldMineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Namibian Amethyst

Amethyst is the gemstone variety of quartz, produced by the presence of manganese in clear quartz crystal. Increments of iron within the crystal as it formed vary the color of the amethyst, which ranges from pale lilac to deep purple.

The amethyst crystals originating in the Brandberg region of Namibia are considered by gemologists to be unique in the mineral kingdom, and some of the highest quality available in the world. The African bushmen consider the entire mountainous region sacred, and call the central peak the "fire mountain". Over 43,000 rock paintings can be found on the mountain and in the surrounding area, in around 1000 different sites. This region was formed over 130 million years by the fossilization of ancient rain forests, and now produces amethysts with exceptional color, clarity and a vibrant luster that is umistakable.

Brandberg amethyst crystals are said by crystal healers to function as gatekeepers to Higher Worlds, and to generate a powerful field of protection for the bearer, bringing a sense of security, peace and protection.

Large Namibian Amethyst Oval Pendant in 14 karat GoldThis unique combination of elements in a single crystal inspires the bearer with confidence required to dive deep within the Self to illuminate the shadow side of our being, providing us with the light of Divine Love and the illumination of Divine Guidance from very high frequency Sources in Higher Worlds, enabling us to transform our deepest fears and most persistent negative emotions and thoughtforms into positive thoughts, loving emotions, and new, creative patterns of behavior that empower us to be our highest and best Selves.

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

“Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty,” according to the International Colored Gemstone Association.

“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. The color violet is associated with the crown chakra in the Western chakra system, and so this extremely bright violet amethyst is said by crystal healers to activate and energize the crown chakra, connecting the bearer to Higher Mind, Higher Realms and inner spiritual guidance from extremely elevated and reliable Sources.

We use amethyst as a spiritual purifier, a way to protect the etheric body from outer stresses, be they of a spiritual, mental, physical, personal or impersonal nature.

The color of amethyst is violet, the color of the seventh, or crown chakra, in the human energy body, and the Violet Ray is the Seventh of the Seven Rays of Creation. The Seventh Ray is one aspect of the Holy Spirit, a combination of the blue flame of faith and the pink flame of love.

Count St. GermainThe Ascended Master who is Master of the Seventh Ray is Count St. Germain, the eighteenth century reincarnation of the Western Mystic and Adept Christian Rosenkreuz, apochryphal founder of the Rosicrucian Order. The Seventh Ray focus greatly on the use of ceremonial magic and alchemy to purify and transmute the lower, animal instincts of humanity into higher impulses, higher thought-forms, more evolved emotional states, and more purified energetic signatures at all levels of being.

In the pantheon of modern day New Age Guides and Teachers, the Count Saint Germain is called "The World Teacher" and "The Master of the Violet Ray" and is thought to communicate mind-to-mind with many, many students around the world. There is thought to be a large contingent of his students alive today in the United States, the center of modern Empire, just as Paris was the center of European Empire at the time of St. Germain.

Many New Age students of St. Germain utilize crystals and gemstones in their spiritual practice, for healing and in meditation, in a modern alchemical quest for Higher Self, Higher Mind and Higher Purpose. Modern New Age practice encompasses a belief in the theory of karma and reincarnation. The belief in reincarnation has its roots in the Hindu and Egyptian Mystery School traditions, and is fundamental to the Greek Mystery School Tradition of the pre-Socratic philosophers, as we discuss at great length in the online E-Book Spirits of Stone: A Lightworker's Guide to Crystals for Healing and Meditation.

New Age students of the Ancient Wisdom Teachings often utilize crystals and gemstones, along with meditation techniques, Reiki and past life regression therapy to access memories of past lives, and to release the detrimental patterns of behavior, negative emotions and outmoded mental maps of the world imprinted in our cells, our hearts, our minds and our karma from traumas experienced aeons ago.

Large Namibian Amethyst Oval Pendant in 14 karat GoldMany of these modern acolytes of the Great Alchemist utilize crystals and gemstones thought to resonate with the energy vibration of the Violet Ray, under the guidance of Master St. Germain for purification and to raise the kundalini energy in a quest for Unity Consciousness. Such crystals and gems include especially amethyst, that violet colored form of quartz once so favored by the Pope and Bishops of the Catholic Church.

This crystal has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It has also cleaned and charged with the natural energy of sunlight. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
