This gorgeous, energetically powerful Tibetan Blue Obsidian Mini Radiant Heart pendant with trillion cut Pink Tourmaline gemstone crown is set into a sterling silver basket setting and comes complete with its own sterling silver chain in a velveteen jewelry box for safekeeping.
Tibetan Blue Obsidian comes from the banks of the Yarlung Zangbo River. The Zangbo is the highest altitude major river in the world, originating in the Tamlung Tso Lake in Western Tibet, southeast of Mount Kailash, one of the most sacred sites on Planet Earth.
This beautiful, extremely rare gemstone pendant imparts the unique energy signature of the High Himalayas. Jane and I feel a taste of that "peace that passeth understanding" when meditating with this Blue Obsidian, and we feel that there is a reason this particular stone has recently come onto the world markets -- because Lightworkers, meditators and healers definitely need the specific vibrations imparted by this remarkable stone.
The combination of Tibetan Blue Obsidian and Pink Tourmaline activates and energizes the heart and throat chakras, which are considered to be pink and blue in the Western chakra system. This combination of gemstones supports one's ability to communicate one's heartfelt truths to individuals and through the mass media, including social media, video, text and graphic imagery. This combination of gemstones helps provide us with a safe secure energetic space in which to connect with our own personal heart-felt truth and to share that truth with others.
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 an energetically 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."
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Pink Tourmaline
Tourmaline is the name given to a family of minerals forming hard, slender vertically striated prismatic crystals, often hexagonal or rhombohedral in shape, with a high specific gravity, classified as complex aluminum borosilicate.
Like quartz, tourmaline crystals will generate an electrical charge when pressure is applied in the direction of the vertical axis. This is called piezoelectricity. In addition, some tourmaline will generate an electrical charge when heated.
Tourmaline is the birthstone for the month of October and the Zodiacal sign of Libra. In ancient Hindu tradition, the tourmaline is a stone of motivation, which impels the wearer toward the good, and a "teller" stone that gives insight in times of duress and can identify sources of distress in the wearer's environment.
Shamanic practitioners in African, Native American and Aboriginal tribes have used tourmaline for centuries to provide protection from physical danger and to amplify healing powers.
Common tourmaline is black, and the lighter colors, such as blue and light green, are much more rare. The colors in the stones are created by the presence of various metallic ions such as iron, titanium, chromium, and others. The various colors of tourmaline are associated with the seven primary chakras within the human aura.
The energy signature of pink tourmaline resonates with the heart chakra, which is associated with the color pink in the Western chakra system. Pink tourmaline is believed by crystal healers to activate and energize the heart chakra.
For meditators, pink tourmaline can be valuable in releasing energy stuck in the heart chakra. Because pink tourmaline is a stone of protection par excellence, this lovely gemstone can help us to attain a feeling of safety and emotional security that is supportive of all spiritual practices designed to open the heart chakra, and develop compassionate feelings, thoughts and actions.
Crystal healers also find pink tourmalineto be extremely beneficial in treatment of individuals who have experienced the loss of a loved one, or who find themselves picking up on the emotional wounds of others around them. Pink tourmaline has often been used in the treatment of wounds to the emotional body, and especially a wounded heart, but because of pink tourmaline's elevated energy signature, this versatile gemstone can be used effectively in treatment of wounds to the heart, throat, third eye and crown chakra.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Qualities of Tibetan Blue Obsidian
Obsidian is a silicon-rich glassy, vitreous mineral formed by the rapid cooling of volcanic material. Often quite dark and opaque, most often black, green, brown or white, obsidian also occurs as translucent or transparent, sky-blue gemmy material that is prized by jewelers, toolmakers and Lightworkers alike.
Because of its lack of a highly defined inner crystalline structure, obsidian can be fashioned into extremely thin and durable, super-sharp blades, and was used in prehistorical times for fashioning tools and weapons, while modern toolmakers create surgical scalpel blades with almost molecular thinness from this unique substance.
Blue obsidian, which rarely occurs as transparent, gemstone quality material, energizes the throat chakra, which is associated with the color blue in the Western chakra system, while engaging Higher Mind, enabling the bearer to concentrate during clairvoyant sessions, and is thus highly useful to those engaged in telepathic communications during meditation, or in pre-cognitive activities such as Tarot card reading or divinations of all kinds. In addition, blue obsidian is an ideal stone for use during astral travel, providing protection while facilitating the journey.
Blue Obsidian strengthens the flow of Universal Life Force energy, also known as chi or prana in the region of the throat chakra, enhancing the bearer's abiity to communicate spiritual truths and facilitating the ability to communicate through the compassionate heart while connecting to inner spiritual guidance. Blue obsidian is used to develop clairvoyance and enhance the bearer's ability to channel messages from Spirit.
Obsidian is considered by crystal healers and shamanic practitioners to be an excellent grounding stone which provides a shield of energetic protection around the bearer.
In meditation, Jane and I have found that Tibetan Blue Obsidian helps relax the physical body, quiet the mind, and energize the heart chakra.
I was meditating with my Tibetan Blue-Green Obsidian meditation stone, which is rough and uncut, and the size of a quail egg, when I started to feel all the tiny muscles around my eyes relax. Then the relaxation spread to my entire face, my shoulders, my arms and hands, down into my chest, trunk, and belly.
I continued to enjoy the feeling of muscles relaxing, and I realized as my legs and feet relaxed, that the reason I normally get sore after prolonged meditation is that I am still trying to push energy around while meditating. This makes my body tense up.
It's hard work keeping my mind "alert" yet "empty" and when there is a strong intent, the will forces engage, and often the body tenses as a result. The more expectations I have about my practice, the more devoted I am, in fact, the more I may tense into the work of "meditation", which includes observing myself and my mind during meditation, rather than simply relaxing into present moment awareness.
Yes, I realized, relaxation is the key to prolonged, deep meditation. Thank you Tibetan Blue Green Obsidian, for reminding me of that, and for helping me to simply allow the flow of Being to be present inthis body. When the body feels that Flow, the body automatically begins to relax, and when the mind enters that Flow as well, then true meditation can begin.
Tibetan Blue Obsidian is a powerful, protective stone, which brings the purity of the rivers of the High Himayas to your energy field. In fact crystal healers recommend Blue Obsidian to all those who seek to remove unwanted energetic attachments from their auric fields. We all have a myriad of energetic attachments to other people -- our families, friends, co-workers, loved ones, and even those with whom we interact casually in our world, including in cyberspace!
Sometimes those energetic attachments can act as conduits for negative emotions, unwanted energies, and unpleasant thought-forms that are truly alien to our own being.
This is why all spiritual practices teach ways to disconnect from the energy fields of the mass of humanity. Lightworkers, shamanic healers, crystal healers, meditators, and energy workers all have developed a myriad of practices, rituals and exercises designed to detach these energetic “hooks and cords” from our auras and our chakra system.
Blue Obsidian provides a potent protection from the flow of undesirable thoughts, emotions and energies in our environment which have their origins in the negativity of other people with whom we come in contact day and night.
Tibetan Blue Obsidian is a stone of personal protection and physical relaxation, a stone of truth-telling, a stone of deep meditation, and above all a stone that connects the bearer to the elementals, devas and nature-spirits who inhabit the elevated regions of the Himalayan Mountains. This is the place where Earth's mightiest rivers are born -- where snow melt powers the world's cleanest alpine water, fresh from its vortexial flow down steep mountainous streams, to merge into powerful flows that reach down into China and India and Southeast Asia, providing for the needs of billions of people.
Himalayan Rivers include the Indus, Ganges, Yangtze, Brahmaputra, Salween, Mekong, Xunjiang Red River (Asia), Irrawaddy River, Chao Phraya, Syr Darya, Amu Darya, Tarim River and Yellow River.
"The collective catchment area of the Himalayan Rivers houses around 3 billion people (nearly 50% of the population of the world) in Bangladesh, Afghanistan, People's Republic of China, Bhutan, Nepal, India, Cambodia, Burma, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Thailand, Kyrgyzstan, Vietnam, Laos, Pakistan, and Malaysia," according to mapsofindia.com.
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.
