This gorgeous water clear Non Tarnishing Rose de France Amethyst Star of David Pendant features a minimalist Rhodium plated 925 sterling silver setting that displays the entire surface of the stone, front and back. It comes with an 18" sterling silver chain and a velveteen jewelry box for safe keeping.
This Star of David pendant was cut and set in Brazil from natural Brazilian quartz by Master Gemstone cutters under the guidance of Satya Center. We were meticulous in following Marcel Vogel's specifications for cutting these Star of David pendants, and we made sure that the setting did not cover any of the surface of the crystal, front or back.
Rhodium is a hard, durable, lustrous metal in the platinum family. The setting of this pendant is .925% pure sterling silver, electroplated with Rhodium, which will prevent scratching and tarnishing, and preserve the brilliance of the finish.
You should not need to clean your Rhodium plated sterling silver jewelry for years. When the time comes:
Never use chemicals, abrasives, a toothbrush, ammonia, silver dips, ultra sonic cleaners, or silver or gold polishing cloths on Rhodium plated jewelry. Instead use mild liquid detergent in warm water, with a soft organic cotton towel or microfiber cleaning cloth.
Combine 1/3 cup of a mild liquid detergent with 1 cup warm water in a bowl. Soak the rhodium-plated sterling silver jewelry in the solution for 10 minutes but never longer than 15 minutes. Then, using your fingers, gently rub the metal setting for a moment or two.
Fill another bowl with distilled or bottled room temperature water. Rinse off your jewelry gently.
Dry the washed jewelry by placing it on soft towels like 100% soft cotton—or, better still, on microfiber cloth specially made for rhodium-plated silver—and gently pat it dry.
Metaphysical and Mineralogical Properties of Rose de France Amethyst
The Rose de France Amethyst Star of David pendant is one of the most protective pendants available to Lightworkers, meditators, and all those who wish to strengthen their aura and shield themselves from unwanted interference, negative environmental energies and negative collective thought forms during this turbulent time of cultural transformation.
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, as well as being featured elements in the fabled breastplate of the High Priest in the Old Testament and gemstones traditionally placed in rings of ranking members of the Roman Catholic Church.
Amethyst is also prized by Lightworkers and crystal healers for its unique energetic properties and its powerful and beneficial effects on mind, body and aura.
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 works to open and energize the crown chakra, associated with the colors violet, gold and white in the Western mystery school tradition. 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.
Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst was able to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence. “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 website of Independent Certified Gemologists and Appraisers. “In Tibet, amethyst is considered to be sacred to Buddha and rosaries are often fashioned from it.”
Because 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 Amethyst 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.
The color violet is 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.
The 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.
Many 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.
Rose de France amethyst combines the traditional spiritual properties of amethyst with the healing properties of the Rosy Ray, which is associated with the heart chakra in the Western mystery school tradition. So the energy signature of Rose de France Amethyst resonates with both the Rosy Ray of the Divine Mother and the Violet Ray of Count St. Germain.
Working on the heart, the fourth chakra, Rose de France amethyst works to transmute heartache, heartbreak and the deleterious effects of anger we have experienced in our lives, into the energy of unconditional love, healing the wounds we have suffered in our emotional body.
Rose de France amethyst empowers us and strengthens us by its energizing effect on the heart chakra, giving us the strength and courage we need to allow our selves to open our hearts fully and experience the compassion known by Jesus and Buddha, the joy and sorrow that accompany the awareness of the interdependence of all living beings.
Metaphysical Properties of the Star of David Cut
The Star of David cut crystal was invented by IBM scientist and energy healer Marcel Vogel. He invented the coating on computer hard drives that holds the memory. He was also a renowned energy healer who created precision cut crystals intuitively, according to the principles of sacred geometry, for healing and meditation purposes. Marcel, a Lightworkers who performed crystal healings on others, always wore a Star of David for protection.
This Vogel Star of David cut in particular, comprised of two triangles, one pointed up and the other down, makes use of a symbol that has been used for millenia and represents the merging of the higher and lower worlds, enabling us to connect to the Divine on our path of spiritual evolution.
To learn more about Marcel Vogel and his techniques for crystal healing, read the first several chapters of his never-before-published autobiography, The Spiritual Science of Crystal Healing, edited by Curtis Lang, which is in our Vogel Archives.
You'll find Marcel Vogel's instructions for using crystals for healing and meditation in the book along with a lot of other very important information for all metaphysical rockhounds.
The Star of David is a versatile Lightworker's power tool that serves as a receiver, amplifier and transmitter of Universal Life Force energies and strengthens the bearer's bio-field, or aura.
Mystery school traditions of both East and West have for millennia taught many difficult techniques for expanding the aura, for amplifying the human energy field. The reason is simple. The stronger the aura, the more tuned in the individual is to Source, and the better able they are to conduct Universal Life Force energy from the Source.
Universal Life Force energy travels from the person with the most highly charged auric field to the person with a less highly charged field. This is how Spiritual Teachers, Ascended Masters, Gurus, Saints, Guides and angelic beings of light can have profound effects on all those who enter or are touched by their auric fields, and explains why the traditional Mystery School teachings of the East emphasize that the student must seek to be in the physical presence of the teacher to receive "darshan", the Light of the Teacher, which will bring the student many gifts.
In addition, a strong aura is the best protection from unwanted energies of all kinds, and serves as an energetic shield, protecting the bearer from all kinds of environmental toxins assailing us on the subtle levels 24 hours a day.
Those who work in the healing arts or in counseling know that a major issue for all health care providers and Lightworkers, bodyworkers and counselors is protection from the negativity encountered in the course of working on people who are wounded, physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually.
We all need protection useful for protection from negative thought-forms, other people's emotional debris, and other unwanted energies encountered in the everyday environment. The Star of David pendant is also excellent for amplifying and transmitting beneficial energies to others at will, in casual and clinical settings alike.
The Star of David crystals are very advanced precision tools for use in lightwork and vibrational healing.
The Star of David crystals have two sides. The front is flat and has an upward pointing triangle. The back is fatter and has a downward pointing triangle.
The front face is the male face, and it transmits light energy. The back face is the female face, and it receives light energy.
When you wear the Star of David pendant, you put the female side next to your heart, and the male side is pointing out, away from your body. When you see the translucent crystal from the front it appears to have a Star of David engraved on it, because of the two triangles cut into the faces.
This way, the female, receptive side of the crystal will pick up the energy coming from your heart, the amethyst will transmute that energy into a very high frequency vibration, and the male side of the crystal will radiate that high frequency light energy in all directions around you, enveloping you and filling your aura with the cleansing, healing energy. This strengthens your aura and helps protect your from unwanted, intrusive energies of all kinds in your environment.
In addition, you can actively use the Star of David cut crystal in healing energy work.
For instance, if you have a favorite essential oil or flower essence, and you would like to deliver it to a particular part of your body for healing purposes, this is what you would do.
Take the oil or flower essence and put a drop or two on the female side of the crystal. Place the crystal male side down on the part of the body you wish to treat. Place your hand over the female side of the crystal and direct your life force energy into the crystal from the chakra in the palm of your hand. Pray for healing.
The female side of the crystal will pick up the subtle energies from the flower essences, the crystal will amplify theat energy, and combine that healing energy with the energy of the violet ray. Then the male side will radiate that energy through the male side of the crystal into the affected area.
You can do this for yourself and for others.
If you choose to use this healing crystal in this way on others, it is recommended that you clean the crystal afterwards.
