This lovely Tibetan Green Obsidian Radiant Heart is crowned with a large Peridot marquise gemstone and is further complemented by a large teardrop Golden Labradorite gemstone which is suspended beneath the Radiant Heart. 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.
This gorgeous, energetically powerful Mini Tibetan Green Obsidian Radiant Heart pendant 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 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 Green Obsidian, and we feel that there is a reason this particular stone has recently come onto the world markets -- because Light workers, meditators and healers definitely need the specific vibrations imparted by this remarkable stone.
The combination of Tibetan Green Obsidian, Peridot and Golden Labradorite activates and energizes the navel, heart, and crown chakras, aligning our personal will with our true heart's desire, and with Higher Purpose.
This Tibetan Green Obsidian Radiant Heart pendant comes complete with its own sterling silver chain in a velvet jewelry box for safe-keeping.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Tibetan Green 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, much less frequently, as the beautiful translucent or transparent gemstone quality material that is highly prized by jewelers, toolmakers and Light workers 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.
Green Obsidian energizes and activates the heart chakra, which is associated with the color green in the Western chakra system.
Green Obsidian helps us to see with the heart, to combine a masculine strength with compassionate creativity, and to facilitate the study and practice of agriculture and herbalism for nurturing and healing.
Wear this color to help when communicating with devas and nature spirits. In addition, green obsidian is said to help connect the heart with the third eye, facilitating clairvoyance and fostering a deep experience of Unity with Universal Creation.
Green Obsidian is a stone of joy and freedom, imparting a feeling of springtime exuberance and optimism that opens the heart and the mind to the very best life has to offer on Planet Earth!
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 fact crystal healers recommend Green 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.
Green 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 Green Obsidian is a stone of personal protection and physical relaxation, a heart-opening 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.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Golden Labradorite
Golden Labradorite is an extremely rare form of the feldspar crystal known as labradorite, which usually occurs as heavily striated formations with colors ranging from whitish-grey to yellow, pink and red. Golden labradorite is often translucent and gems of high clarity are prized by connoisseurs, Light workers, rockhounds and mineralogists alike.
Golden Labradorite is said by crystal healers to promote clarity of vision, both inner and outer, to enhance analytical faculties, and to cleans, purify, strengthen and open the third chakra. The third chakra is called the Manipura chakra in Sanskrit, is located above the navel, and is connected to the solar plexus in the physical body. An open, healthy Manipura chakra is likened by yogis to a radiant sun, and is a storehouse of the individual's prana, or chi energy. The Manipura chakra is related to issues of empowerment, will, and the ability to manifest one's intentions in the world. A healthy Manipura chakra instills qualities of courage, right action, leadership, self-worth, self-respect, inner radiance, and self-worth.
Golden Labradorite is said to be a very protective stone, like Citrine, repelling negative energies and thought forms and helping to cleanse and purify body, mind and aura of unwanted, stuck energies. This gemstone is said to facilitate the opening of the chakras, to stimulate the flow of Universal Life Force Energy throughout the physical, etheric, astral and mental bodies, and to connect the wearer directly with Higher Mind.
Golden Labradorite also works to open and energize the crown chakra. In the Western chakra system, the colors gold, violet and white are associated with the crown chakra. Gold is considered the color of Christ Consciousness and clairvoyants report seeing a preponderance of the color gold in the auric field of Adepts and Spiritual Teachers.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Peridot
Peridot (also known as olivine) is the common name given by gemologists and jewelers to several varieties of a fairly rare magnesium iron silicate crystal commonly found in lava formations and meteorites -- known more technically by mineralogists as fosterite and fayalite.
In America many jewelers sell green garnets as "peridot", which is somewhat confusing. Garnets are far more common than the much more desirable and hard to get "true" peridot, which is available only from a very few volcanic locations around the world, and from even more rare meteorite falls.
True peridot has a hardness of 6.5 to 7 and a high specific gravity, due to the presence of iron in the gemstone, which is often found in igneous formations heavy in hematite. Peridot kinds and colours vary as follows: chrysolite is a yellowish green; peridot or "evening emerald" normally exhibits olive pistachio or leek-green colour, of a hue more subdued than the emerald.
Peridot is said to have been one of the stones found in the breastplate of the high priest of the Israelites according to the Old Testament of the Bible.
In the Western mystery school traditions and many New Age chakra systems, yellow is the color of the third chakra, found in the stomach and solar plexus region, which is associated with the astral body and issues of personal power, hopes, dreams, fantasies and aspirations. In these systems, green is associated with the fourth, or heart chakra, the mental body, issues of relationship, universal feelings of unity and compassion, and individual beliefs and values.
Metaphysical crystal experts say that peridot radiates a warm, relaxing and cleansing energy, related especially to the third and fourth chakras. Peridot is said to stimulate the heart and solar plexus chakras, bringing the activities of the mind into harmony with affairs of the heart. Peridot helps the bearer to an intellectual understanding of relationships, and to regulate the physical, mental, and emotional cycles surfacing in each stage of the life path.
Peridot is also said to lessen the impact of jealousy, traditionally associated with the color green, and chronic low-grade anger, traditionally associated with a sickly greenish yellow which is the color of bile, or gall.
Crystal healers often use peridot to tonify, energize and strengthen the body, which makes sense given its close association with the solar plexus and heart. For the same reason, peridot is used in the treatment of disorders of the lungs, heart, spleen and digestive tract.
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.
