This lovingly hand-crafted 4.5 inch long Ruby Filled Citrine and Clear Quartz Healing Wand, designed by our friend, AGTA Fashion Forward award winning gemologist and jewelry designer Brian Cook, was formed from a water-clear Brazilian quartz crystal which was drilled and filled with gorgeous red ruby gemstone chips suspended in jojoba oil, then capped with AAA quality red-orange citrine. This is a one of a kind sensation, with gorgeous organic forms in the shape he's given this wand.
This wand is a Lightworker's power tool, a mineralogical collector's item and a unique work of gemstone art. This wand has been in Curtis and Jane's private collection for several years, and the time has come for it to find a new home. In that time, we've used the wand in many energy and crystal healing sessions and in meditation, and we've been delighted with its energetic properties.
This wand is designed to create fields and bubbles of energy around the bearer during meditation, and around the client in energy and crystal healing sessions. Use the male end of the wand to direct a concentrated stream of energy to any chakra or any part of the body.
Simply point tip at the targeted chakra, organ, or body part, and stream energy to that area. The energy travels from the citrine female tip down the shaft along the spiral grooves in the wand, amplifying the flow of Universal Life Force Energy with every turn of the spiral gyre. You can also visualize a broad stream of energy flowing from the spiraling grooves in the shaft, expanding outward so the effect is similar to a wide shower head streaming water.
Concentrate on the citrine end of the wand while holding the wand upright with the female (citrine) tip pointing up and visualize a hemisphere or bubble of golden light emanating from the citrine, surrounding you and the area around you during meditation or crystal healing sessions.
Some of our products are combinations of various crystals, gems, metals and other substances. None of these combination products has been under compression at any stage in its creation [but they are fitted together naturally].
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of the Ruby
The ruby is a beautiful, brilliant gemstone in the corundum family, which includes the sapphire. The ruby is the hardest and most expensive gemstone other than the diamond.
The rough ruby appears lusterless and manifests quite often as hexagonal prisms and rhombohedral shaped crystals. The ruby exhibits a color range from pink, crimson and red to orange red, and has been a favorite of royalty -- and of spiritual adepts --for millennia.
Wear a ruby to increase unconditional love from within and without, to follow your bliss, to stablilize your wealth and safeguard your well being in tumultuous and conflicted times and places.
In the Hindu Vedas, the most ancient sacred Scriptures known to man, the ruby is called "ratnaraj", the "king of precious stones" and "ratnayaka", "leader of precious stone". The Masters of the Ancient Wisdom Teachings attributed the ruby's brilliant red hue to an inextinguishable fire within the stone.
Ruby is an extraordinary stone for opening the heart chakra and creating a feeling of physical security in an uncertain world, because the ruby's red color resonates with the red color of the root chakra in the Western chakra system, and the ruby is also associated metaphysically with the heart chakra. The ruby resonates to a very high frequency of unconditional love and is known as the "stone of nobility".
In both Vedic teachings and medieval Christian mystery school traditions, the ruby conferred safety, security and peace to the bearer, even in the midst of war, turmoil and cultural upheaval, and was thus very highly prized by the warrior class of nobles in both East and West.
Further, the ruby has been used to attract wealth. It has been said that if one has ruby, wealth will never depart. Metaphysically, the ruby encourages us to follow our bliss, bringing clarity to our mental state, lucidity to the dream state and helping us to make sense of intuitive insights and their precise meaning in the physical realm.
The ruby also has healing properties for the heart, in aiding in eliminating toxins from the body and in it's ability to help to heal the earth. It is a deeply balancing stone, helps to eliminate stagnant energies from our physical and etheric bodies and helps to align us with Love toward ourselves and others.
Metaphysical and Mineralogical Properties of Citrine
Citrine is a powerful semi-precious stone which is a rare, more energetically powerful form of quartz crystal, characterized by a yellow color, ranging from white to deep copper. It is less common in nature than amethyst (another member of the quartz family, and one of the two semi-precious stones present in ametrine) but both are found in quartz veins, as well as volcanic locations and elsewhere in nature.
The color of citrine derives from small amounts (approximately 40 parts per million) of iron in the quartz. The difference between citrine and amethyst is only the oxidation state of the iron present in the quartz. Citrine typically is formed when an amethyst becomes heated to the point where the iron held within the crystal undergoes a further stage of oxidation.
Citrine activates, opens and energizes the third chakra, including the navel and solar plexus, stimulating both the physical body and the mind, increasing endurance and elevating energy levels while promoting emotional balance (unlike other stimulants such as caffeine). Citrine is an excellent stone for clearing the aura of negative emotions.
Because it energizes the navel/solar plexus chakra, Citrine is said to aid in digestion and to activate the thymus, which regulates our immune system, thus promoting health and well-being. In addition, citrine is said to provide a feeling of comfort and optimism. I must admit, that when I wear or work with citrine, I have a great sense of well being and protection.
Citrine also stimulates the crown chakra, our doorway to Cosmic Consciousness, and helps unite the seven lower chakras and the physical body with the energy frequency of the Higher Self, aligning the eighth chakra with the rest of the energy body.
In our experience, citrine cleanses the emotional and etheric bodies, and stimulates the holder’s vital energies and physical body. It imparts a strong sense of protection if worn on the body or placed in a room where energy work takes place or groups gather.
In addition, citrine is an ideal gemstone for protection. Used to strengthen the aura and surround the bearer in a bubble of golden light, citrine provides the bearer with a safe, secure personal space, free from the interference of negative or unwanted individual or collective thoughtforms, deleterious emotional states projected by others, and even inasuspicious astrological influences, which can be literally burned away when they encounter such a strong golden aura as citrine helps to create.
Used in energy healing, citrine is said to transmit the golden light of unity consciousness, which is tuned to the very highest vibrations of an open eighth chakra -- the chakra above the crown of the head, said by the Western New Age chakra system to be the location of the Higher Self.
When Jane and I have used citrine in Reiki and crystal energy sessions with clients, they have reported feeling a gloden glow around them. We have also found that citrine is a powerful tool for extracting negative energies, gently dissolving energy blocks, and releasing negative emotions during sessions.
This wand comes with its own FREE handmade pouch constructed of 100% polyester fleece and micro bonded suede that has the look and feel of real sheepskin. They are designed for a snug fit and come with extra padding to protect delicate tips and points.
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.
