This beautiful translucent Rose de France Amethyst Pendant with a large and beautiful emerald cut Phenacite Gemstone Crown is a Flower of Life faceted cut, designed according to principles of sacred geometry. It is a unique flower-like 12 pointed star in a sterling silver setting which shows its luminous quality and allows the stone to breathe.
You can see the 12 'petals' of the flower made by the beautiful faceted cut. It is on a simple sterling silver chain which allows it to hang freely right at the thymus between the throat and the heart chakras, and comes in a velveteen jewelry box for safekeeping.
Amethyst is a very helpful stone in the quartz family, used for clearing, protection and spiritual development.
The combination of Phenacite and Rose de France Amethyst increases the flow of Universal Life Force Energy in body, mind and aura, and directs the flow of energy into the upper chakras, activating the crown and heart chakras, and providing a stabilizing and uplifting energy stream which is extremely useful during meditation.
Properties of the Flower of Life According to Principles of Sacred Geometry
The 12 pointed star is associated with Christ Consciousness and the restoration of Divine Order. It is an evolutionary tool for those who wish to reclaim the purity and grace of their soul, as it was originally created. The Flower of Life places one within the center of abundant nurturing energy of the Universe.
In the words of Drunvalo Melchizedek, a modern metaphysical Master of sacred geometry, "The Flower of Life symbol is considered to be sacred among many cultures around the world, both ancient and modern. Within this symbol can be found all the building blocks of the universe that we call the Platonic Solids."
"The Flower of Life symbol can be used as a metaphor to illustrate the connectedness of all life and spirit within the universe. The Platonic Solids are important because they are found in the rudimentary construction of organic life, as well as music, language, and consciousness itself. In the Flower of Life workshop we show how these building blocks of life called the Platonic Solids serve as templates through which the foundation of all life everywhere can be expressed. Once this is understood, the importance of the Flower of Life becomes apparent as a totally integrated expression of 'God' or 'All That Is.'"

Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Phenacite
Phenacite is an extremely hard, light gemmy form of beryllium silicate crystal, exhibiting a bright vitreous luster, found primarily in Brazil, Italy, Russia and Burma. Phenacite is much harder and much lighter than quartz crystal, appearing most often in hexagonal rods, like this gorgeous gemstone.
Lightworkers, meditators and healers prize phenacite because phenacite increases the flow of prana throughout the mind-body-aura, elevates energy from lower chakras into higher chakras, and helps move awareness to the Higher Mind centers -- assisting us in connecting with Divine Source.
When Curtis & I were first introduced to phenacite on a business trip to meet with a new supplier, he put the small stones in Curtis' hand and said "you need these". Well, I was skeptical, as I found it hard to understand what such small, yet clear and beautiful stones would do for us, so I held one in my left hand as we drove the two and a half hour drive home. Well!!! Within five minutes of holding the stone, I became very excited and told Curtis (he was driving), that all of our healer friends need this stone, that anyone who works with people doing more than one session a day, could really benefit from holding this stone between treatments.
I felt an instant connection with a golden white grid of light, (and I am not normally the one in this household who does grid work) and such clarity all around me. I literally felt energy connecting me to my third eye & crown chakras which set a field of clear and resonant energy all around me. I felt as if I'd been transported to a clear room of light, with no interfering energies of any kind, a simple radiant Light of the Highest Vibration I have yet experienced. It wasn't peaceful exactly, although it did make me feel good, feel grounded, connected to Source and kinetically alive in a brilliant spacial enclosure. It was as if our car, turned into a temple dedicated to the Father/Mother Source and I had just had a drink from their well of crystalline pure waters connecting me in every direction with knowing, with being, with total Love & Acceptance.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Rose de France 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.”
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. The color violet is associated with the crown chakra in the Western chakra system, and so this extremely bright violet amethyst is said by crystal healers to activate and energize the crown chakra, connecting the bearer to Higher Mind, Higher Realms and inner spiritual guidance from extremely elevated and reliable Sources.
We use amethyst as a spiritual purifier, a way to protect the etheric body from outer stresses, be they of a spiritual, mental, physical, personal or impersonal nature.
Rose de France amethyst combines the traditional spiritual properties of amethyst, associated with the Violet Ray and the crown chakra, with the healing properties of the Rosy Ray, which is associated with the heart chakra in the Western mystery school tradition.
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 also 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.
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.
The color of amethyst is violet, 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.
This crystal has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation.
