This 1.5" long Amazonite Teardrop Pendant with Faceted Round Rose Quartz Crown comes complete with an 18 inch silver chain in its own velveteen jewelry box for safe keeping.
The combination of Amazonite and Rose Quartz activates the heart and throat chakras, which are colored rose and blue in the Western chakra system. The combination of the Rosy Ray and the Blue Ray creates the Violet Ray, the Seventh Ray, which is the energy stream of Ceremonial Magic, Alchemical Change and Personal Transformation.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Amazonite
Amazonite is a gemstone variety of feldspar and so shares in those qualities as well. Feldspar comprises a large group of silicate minerals containing calcium, potassium or sodium. Amazonite varies in color from yellow-green to blue-green and also often contains whitish streaks of color.
Amazonite is a mineral which is said to be soothing to the emotional body, soothing the nerves by eliminating aggravation and dispelling negative energies. It is soothing to all chakras, especially the heart and throat, and because of it's blue-green color it is very helpful in communications of all kinds.
Because this stone is very balancing to the etheric, astral and physical bodies, it is a wonderful stone for healing, for balancing male and female energies, and can be used as a preventive stone of protection.
Because of it's bluish-green coloration, amazonite is said to energize and activate the throat and heart chakras, which are assigned the colors blue and green in the Western chakra system. Working with the blue green of this lovely stone will also facilitate communication through the powerful lens of the compassionate heart.
I like to use Amazonite for any purpose connected to the throat chakra, for clarity of purpose, to enhance the ability to speak up for myself or to help new clients articulate their own truth about themselves and their lives.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Rose Quartz
Rose quartz normally exhibits a coloration ranging from pale pink to rose red. Scientists believe the color arises from trace amounts of titanium, iron or manganese within the crystal material. Recent research also indicates the rosy color may arise from thin microscopic fibers of the mineral dumortierite, a form of aluminum borosilicate.
Rose quartz is generally found in large formations, and usually is too clouded with inclusions to provide good material for cutting gemstones, so gemstone quality rose quartz is quite rare and valuable as a mineralogical collector's item.
Rose quartz also has beneficial properties for meditation and healing purposes. The color rose pink is often associated with the heart chakra in the Western chakra system, and rose quartz is believed by crystal healers to activate and energize the heart chakra.
For meditators, rose quartz can be valuable in releasing energy stuck in the heart chakra, and also help us to attain a feeling of safety and emotional security that is supportive of all spiritual practices designed to open the heart chakra, and develop compassionate feelings, thoughts and actions.
Crystal healers also find rose quartz to be extremely beneficial in treatment of individuals who have experienced the loss of a loved one, or who find themselves picking up on the emotional wounds of others around them. Rose quartz has often been used in the treatment of wounds to the emotional body, and especially a wounded heart, but can be used effectively in treatment of wounds to the heart, throat, third eye and crown chakra.
Rose quartz is perfect to place on your altar, by your bed or in the room of a loved one or one who needs extra emotional support. It imparts a warm pink glow and elevates the emotional frequency of the environment in which it resides.
Rose quartz projects a soft, soothing, gentle energy that resonates with vibrations of love, and is especially supportive in cases where an individual is developing the capacity for self love. It sends out an energy of unconditional love, as compared with passionate love, so the energy of rose quartz resonates with the heart chakra rather than the lower chakras.
This is a gently healing stone, allowing for the slow opening of the heart to healing and loving energies. It supports the wearer or bearer of this stone in all spiritual practices and daily activities that promote the development of compassion for all beings -- and especially for oneself.
We often use crystal pendants for psychic protection, purification and to clarify things of a spiritual nature. See our article on Psychic Self Defense for more information along these lines with many suggestions on how to protect yourself from unwanted energies.
