This Radiant Heart Pendant with Pink Tourmaline Trillion Crown rests in a sterling silver setting which allows the stone to breathe, and hangs on its 18 inch sterling silver chain right on the thymus between the throat and the heart chakras, offering protection to the whole body resonating through the compassionate heart. It comes complete in its own velvet jewelry box for safe keeping.
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 Radiant Heart pendant is a powerful 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."
We often recommend that our Reiki and past life therapy clients wear crystals or gemstones for protection, especially clear quartz which contains all colors of the spectrum and works on all the bodies: physical, mental and emotional.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Pink Tourmaline
Tourmaline is the name given to a family of minerals forming hard, slender vertically striated prismatic crystals, often hexagonal, trigonal or rhombohedral in shape, with a high specific gravity, classified as complex aluminum borosilicate. Tourmaline is an igneous mineral that commonly forms in granites and granitic pegmatites.
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.
Tourmaline is the birthstone for the month of October and the Zodiacal sign of Libra. 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.
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.
Pink tourmaline is connected to the heart chakra, which can be either green or pink in the Western chakra system. Pink tourmaline promotes female balance and invokes the protection of the Great Mother while expressing the energy of unconditional love. Pink tourmaline has been used by healers to help in the treatment of disorders of the endocrine system, and to soothe the wounded psyche, induce peaceful sleep, banish unwelcome dreams, and provide an overall balm to the wearer's body, mind and spirit.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Clear Quartz
The word crystal comes from the Greek word "krystallos", meaning ice. The Greeks found quartz crystals high in the frigid Alpine mountains, and Pliny (c. 62-113 A.D.), the foremost historian and mineralogist of his time, believed quartz crystal was ice that had frozen so hard it would never thaw.
One common legend is that crystals were originally heaven's holy water, poured out by God into the aethers. As the holy quintessence descended toward the Earth, it froze into ice in outer space, where it was petrified into permanent solidity by angels so that when it fell to Earth it would be available permanently for the protection and blessing of mankind. [See Rock Crystal: Nature's Holy Stone, by Frank Dorland]
Quartz is the low-temperature stable form of silicon dioxide or silica.Silicon and oxygen are the two most common elements in the Earth's crust.Quartz crystal is perhaps the most common mineral found on the face of the Earth. Sand and sandstone are considered clastic forms of quartz by mineralogists, meaning that they are formed of fragments of pre-existing rocks.
Quartz crystals have been used by healers, spiritual teachers, and scientists of the sacred throughout history to receive, transmit, store, focus, amplify, transform and balance the various forms of energy found in our Universe, all of which can be considered to be interchangeable forms of Universal Light.
Quartz crystals have this marvelous ability because, metaphysically, quartz crystal expresses the unity of the five elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Ether or Spirit). Crystals grow deep in the earth and form much of the earth's crust, yet crystals, like the element air, allow light to pass through them. Crystals are fiery in that they have piezoelectric properties yet they are watery in their hexagonal molecular structure which resembles snowflakes, and in their ice-like appearance. Crystals are quintessential expressions of the element of Ether or Spirit, which is synonymous with Universal Life Force Energy, the fundamental energy that sustains all forms of energy in the known universe.
Thus crystals represent the unity that underlies the apparent multiplicity of material creation, the unity of both material and spiritual worlds.
From a metaphysical viewpoint, quartz crystals are cosmic tuning forks, harmonizing the soul, mind, heart and body of the user with the vibrational frequencies of Spiritual worlds which are after all simply realms of light resonating at a much higher frequency than the material world.
Native Americans revere quartz crystals as the brain cells of Grandmother Earth. Viewing the Earth as a living organism, primitive stones such as granite and sandstone comprise the skeleton of the organism, the Earth's crust is the skin. Vegetation and water channels make up the lifeblood of Earth's body, and metals and minerals function as glands, nerves and sensory organs.
The shining water that moves in the streams and rivers is not just water, but the blood of our ancestors, Chief Seattle explained. If we sell you our land, you must remember that it is sacred. Each ghostly reflection in the clear waters of the lakes tells of events and memories in the lives of my people. The water's murmur is the voice of my father's father. The rivers are our brothers, They quench our thirst. They carry our canoes and feed our children. So you must give to the rivers the kindness you would give any brother.
Quartz crystals, in this worldview, act as the Earth's brain-mind, through which Spirit, the Universal Mind, maintains communication with all parts of Earth's organism, equilibrating the earth's temperature, moisture levels, and other important variables. In addition, quartz crystals and other gemstones collectively create and modulate an electromagnetic field around the Earth, which is a vital component of the Earth organisms auric field, and clear quartz crystals, identified with white light, represent the unifying vibrational frequency that harmonizes the seven rainbow rays of Earth's many varieties of gems and minerals, within that auric field.
Thus in the Native American tradition, any human being who can attune to the power of the quartz crystal is in tune with Grandmother Earth, and obtains the ability to communicate directly with Spiritual worlds.
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.
