This beautiful natural 3 inch long Emerald Rod on Matrix with Hematite from Brazil, weighing 88 grams or 3.1 ounces, is the ideal size to fit in your medicine bag or the palm of your hand. You can see a well formed emerald gemstone rod resting in a matrix which includes whitish colored clear quartz, with greyish metallic looking galena and hematite.
The presence of hematite marks this stone as having an affinity with Archangel Michael, as we shall explain below.
The emerald is a highly prized and very valuable, very hard gemstone crystal belonging to the beryl family found with green or green-blue coloration. Beryl is often found in metamorphic rock formations, including schist bearing and quartz bearing formations. The beryl family includes aquamarine, golden beryl, transparent goshenite and the pinkish gemstone morganite.
Said to be one of the magical stones placed in the breastplate of the High Priest, the emerald is known to crystal healers as “the stone of successful love”, and the energy signature of this green gemstone resonates in harmony with the open heart chakra.
Thus the emerald is used to open the heart chakra, raising the energy from the lower chakras, which resonate primarily with issues of survival, sexual desire and personal power into a loftier trans-personal realm.
If you wish to heal yourself through the power of self-love, or to heal a love relationship, you could do no better than to place an emerald in matrix on your altar or in your pocket and ask for Divine Guidance and Grace to open your heart, and deliver you to the healing energy of unconditional love, universal compassion and balanced sexual affinity.
Those who work with emeralds for healing say that this gemstone helps to clarify intellectual abilities, and helps the bearer to develop the spiritual power of discernment, which is crucial to all spiritual enterprises.
Just as the open heart harmonizes the emotions, and helps to heal all wounds and relations, the emerald harmonizes turbulent emotional states, equilibrates the cloudy, conflicted mind, and opens the individual to the infusion of Spirit and Higher Mind.
The Archangel Michael Connection
This powerful Lemurian Quartz Crystal contains hematite, or iron oxide, giving it a distinctive pinkish hue, and a distinctive metaphysical connection with Archangel Michael.
Esoteric Christianity makes a link between hematite and Archangel Michael, and a quartz crystal containing hematite can provide the bearer with a powerful connection to Michael, providing access to the Archangel's loving wisdom and power to dissolve illusion through the activity of his famous sword, the sword of Ultimate Truth.
During the Libran lunar month in the northern hemisphere, the Orionid and Draconid meteor showers are often visible. At this time of year, when sensational meteor showers, largely composed of iron, traditionally streak across the night sky, Esoteric Christian philosopher Rudolph Steiner’s clairvoyant vision saw the traditional flashing iron sword of Michael.
The meteoric sword of Michael was thought to cleanse the Earth’s atmosphere of summer's sulfurous influences, allowing the Higher Self to emerge and guide the initiate along the path of Spirit toward the birth of the Inner Christ Light, an event which takes place in December, during the festival of Christmas.
