This 1.25 inch high Rutilated Quartz Mini Radiant Heart with a gorgeous Citrine Marquise Crown and deep Red Hessionite Garnet Teardrop Gemstone is set into a sterling silver basket setting and comes complete with an 18 inch sterling silver chain in its own velveteen jewelry box for safe keeping.
The combination of rutilated quartz, citrine and red garnet energizes the root and solar plexus chakras, enhancing the feeling of personal security and personal power, grounding the bearer, while stimulating the flow of universal life force energy, aka chi or prana, throughout the human body and bio-field and directing that flow into the crown chakra.
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."
Metaphyisical and Mineralogical Properties of Rutilated Quartz
This rutilated crystal contains needle-like inclusions of titanium inside it. Rutile is a titanium ore. Titanium is used in high tech and aerospace alloys because it’s a lightweight super-conductor of electrical energy, exhibits great tensile strength and resists corrosion.
Rutilated quartz crystals have a high-energy charge, which is particularly effective in releasing energy blockages. For energy healing, rutillated quartz can be placed near the navel and around any area where the energy feels sluggish. Compared to other forms of quartz, rutilated quartz has a greatly enhanced ability to help dissolve any energy congestion.
Rutilated quartz is an ideal energizer of people, other crystals and plants of all kinds. In our experience, rutilated quartz has a VERY strong, very "electrical" and affects physical, etheric and astral bodies. By strengthening the mind and promoting active awareness this rutilated clear quartz crystal can help to enhance concentration and mental focus and help you to increase the depth and duration of your meditation sessions and the strength of your connection to inner spiritual guidance and spiritual teachers.
Rutilated quartz wands, in my experience, when used in crystal healing, Reiki, or meditation sessions, act as a stimulant to the nervous system and the etheric body.
Rutile is good at repelling negative energy and ending unwanted interference. Rutile promotes and strengthens stability in relationships and marriage, and works to eliminate emotional and physical imbalances. Rutile is very "electrical" and affects physical, etheric and astral bodies.
Rutilated Quartz is also ideal for sending light to the energy grids surrounding the earth, for sending energy to distant locations and for use to help harmonize the energy during group meditational practices.
Metaphyisical 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 thought forms, 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 golden 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.
Metaphysical and Mineralogical Properties of Garnet Gemstones
Garnets are vitreous, translucent hexocatahedral gemstones with a hardness rated significantly above quartz crystal, characterized by the presence of aluminum and manganese, which imparts their striking reddish color.
The garnet derives its name from the pomegranate seed. Pomegranate is called punica granatum in Latin. Hessonite garnet is an orange-red variety of Grossular garnet often used in jewelry.
Garnets have been used for millennia in shamanistic healing and spiritual traditions across the globe, by Native American Indians, Aztecs, Mayans, and African medicine men and healers. Garnet is also one of the stones found in the breastplate of the Israeli High Priest in the Old Testament.
Garnets were traditionally considered stones of protection in both the Middle East and European spiritual traditions, used to ward off demons and evil environmental influences, and to protect warriors in battle. Garnets were also used as stones of sexual healing, to promote passionate connection between loving partners.
Most of all, garnets are the quintessential stone of prosperity, used to manifest abundant wealth and income for millennia in cultures around the world. All these properties are connected to the garnet's connection to the root chakra, which is colored red in the Western chakra system, and which governs issues of survival, adequate prosperity to sustain life, and sexual energy. The root chakra is the site of the coiled kundalini energy which is the fountainhead of all spiritual experiences, and thus the garnet is also thought to awaken the kundalini energy which normally lies dormant in human beings until awakened by a spiritual teacher or by intense spiritual experience of some kind.
Garnets typically are used by spiritual healers to transmute negative energy or stuck energy within a sick person into healthy energy, and to restore the proper flow of life force energy throughout the individual's body. The red color of the garnet indicates its affinity with the root chakra, normally associated with the color red in the Western chakra system, and with the second chakra, normally associated with the color orange in the Western system. In addition, this garnet works to energize the "hara" center, located about two fingers width below the navel, which is the location where the individual's "chi", "prana" or universal life force energy is stored.
The garnet works to equilibrate, cleanse and energize the root chakra and the second chakra, grounding the bearer, strengthening the bearer's self-confidence and sense of physical security, enhancing the sexual energy, the flow of kundalini, and the store of universal life force energy in the physical body.
Jane and I have used garnets in Reiki treatments on ourselves and with clients, and have found that this is one of the most powerful gemstones we have ever used to enhance the flow of universal life force energy, "chi", or "prana" in the body.
Paul Jensen, the designer of this line of pendants says of Hessionite Garnet: "encourages the embodiment of our own divinity. Restores both innocence and grace. Teaches a child-like approach to life."
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.
