This gorgeous Mini Radiant Heart pendant is made from deep purple Amethyst and gemstone quality Danburite. It is set into a sterling silver basket setting which allows the stones to breathe, and hangs on its sterling silver chain right on the thymus at the heart chakra, offering protection to the whole body resonating through the compassionate heart. We often recommend that our Reiki and past life therapy clients wear crystals or gemstones for protection.
The Radiant Heart pendant is a beautiful design 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 danburite helps to redirect the flow of prana upwards towards the crown chakra while activating the heart chakra, and creating a safe energetic space for the exercise of compassion and unconditional love. This combination of stones energizes the upper chakras, and resonates with the energy signature of the Violet Flame of St. Germain.
Properties of Danburite
Danburite is a very hard stone with a Mohs' hardness of 7-7.5, comparable to sapphires, tourmalines and garnets. Danburite is most often yellowish, brown, or white, but mineral collectors prefer the more rare pink coloration.
Named after the town of Danbury, Connecticut, where this gemstone was first discovered, Danburite presents a vitreous luster, and is prized by jewelers because its extreme hardness and poverty of cleavage enables highly faceted gemstones to be cut from this precious mineral.
Pink Danburite energizes and activates the heart chakra, providing the energetic protection that gives us a feeling of emotional safety and personal power that facilitates the opening of the heart to others, loved ones, friends, family, and indeed the whole of humanity, and all of creation. This gemstone is a stone of compassion, and provides emotional healing that can mend the wounded heart.
The metaphysical community prizes Danburite for its ability to connect the bearer to sources directly to sources of Higher Wisdom and to vast libraries of information located in the "akashic records". "Akasha," in Sanskrit, means "brilliant," "shining" or "luminous." "Akashic records" is a theosophical term referring to a universal library of light which records every thought, word, and action, past, present and future, and the templates for all structures and processes in the material world. These records are impressed on a subtle substance called akasha or Soniferous Ether.
Danburite is also known for its ability to help you connect with Higher Self and Higher Purpose, while enhancing your ability to co-operate with others in group activities beneficial to all involved.
In addition, Danburite energizes the entire energy system, body, mind and aura, opening the chakras and increasing the flow of prana, or Universal Life Force energy. For this reason, you may find that using Danburite during meditation or other spiritual practices can result in increased body temperature, tingling sensations in the spine, and in the perception of an "expanded aura".
From personal experience during meditation with Danburite crystals, I can tell you that much depends upon intent. When my intent has been to quiet the mind, holding one of these crystals reduces mental chatter to virtually nothing, while stimulating the crown chakra, the third eye & the eighth chakra above the crown, creating a feeling of warmth & depth, a buzzing and a tingling on the crown of the head and between the eyebrows. There was a physical awareness of a tremendous flows of energy carried on the inbreath and outbreath from the eighth chakra and higher, spiritual sources, through these vital centers and deep into the body.
Concentration on the inner light, and inner meditative visualizations were greatly enhanced, and the ability to connect to inner spiritual guidance, Guides and Teachers increased markedly.
Danburite can fade when exposed to direct sunlight over long periods of time. We recommend using moonlight, Reiki, prayer, and Universal Life Force Energy to clean and charge this crystal periodically if you like.
Properties of 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. 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.”
In the pantheon of modern day New Age Guides and Teachers, the Count de 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 have already discovered.
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.
Many of these modern acolytes of the Great Alchemist utilize crystals and gemstones thought to resonate with the energy vibration of the Violet Ray, which is said to be used under the guidance of 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.
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.
Amethyst is classically the stone of sobriety, purity and chastity and would be an excellent stone for those with tendencies toward addictive behavior, or for those spiritual seekers intent upon transformation through the progressive purification of mind, body and aura.
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.
