These gorgeous, energetically powerful Teardrop Faceted Tibetan Green Obsidian Gemstone Post Earrings are set into sterling silver. The 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
