This gorgeous, energetically powerful 1.33 inch tall Smoky Quartz Magician Stone is crowned with a round Tibetan Green Obsidian gemstone. Tibetan Green 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 Smoky Quartz & Tibetan Green Obsidian Magician Stone pendant comes complete with its own sterling silver chain in a velvet jewelry box for safe-keeping.
This beautiful, extremely rare Tibetan Green Obsidian 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 Lightworkers, meditators and healers definitely need the specific vibrations imparted by this remarkable stone.
The combination of Tibetan Green Obsidian and Smoky Quartz energizes and activates the solar plexus and heart chakras, creating a safe emotional space for the opening of the heart, which empowers the bearer to release old emotional wounds and karmic bonds, and to experience the healing power of compassion that connects us through the open heart to the entire web of life, throughout the physical world and in Higher Realms.
This Magician Stone pendant is cut according to principles of sacred geometry so that a star exhibiting four-fold symmetry appears within it. One can see other stars refracted within the star as well.
The equilateral cross symbolizes the Tetrahedron. The Tetrahedron, or four-sided pyramid, is the geometrical principle underlying many types of both organic and inorganic molecules, and provides the microscopic structure of diamonds and of the amino acids that are the building blocks of all life-forms on planet Earth. Thus it is no surprise that the equilateral cross is an ancient symbol of the Mother Goddess, and represents the four elements of earth, air, fire and water and the four directions of the compass.
The Magician Stone cut pendant is designed to bring the wearer into harmony with the four elements and the four directions, and to help harmonize your energy field with the cosmic flow of energy pouring from the Mother Goddess and present throughout all creation.
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.
Metaphysical and Mineralogical Properties of Smoky Quartz
Mineralogists say there may be more than one cause for the gray to brown to black color range of this very popular form of quartz crystal, ranging from sodium to other minerals in the crystal. According to Melody ("Love is in the Earth"), smoky quartz is produced by the presence of sodium in clear crystal, facilitating the regulatation of fluids in the body, acting much like a mineral supplement bringing mineral equilibrium.
Other mineralogists suggest other theories concerning the dark pigment in smoky quartz, including the presence of trivalent titanium or the presence of carbon compounds.
Some mineralogists suggest that the characteristic dark brown to black color of smoky quartz is produced when clear quartz is exposed to natural radiation emanating from radioactive rocks in the same geological formation where the quartz crystals form and grow. The current scientific hypothesis is that when clear quartz is exposed to radiation, the radiation alters the oxidation states of mineral impurities found within the quartz structure, resulting in smoky quartz.
“The frequent occurrence of smoky quartz in association with rare earth and radioactive minerals is very significant, for later it will be indicated that smoky quartz may have been colored through the action of radioactive elements,” says the University of Michigan’s Edward F. Holden, in a 1925 article in The American Mineralogist. “In Ontario smoky quartz is a constant associate of radioactive minerals,6 and the same association is frequent in Madagascar. Enormous smoky quartz crystals occur in the well known radioactive pegmatite of Baringer Hill, Texas.”
“The evidence given thus far is in agreement with the theory that smoky quartz owes its color to atoms of silicon, formed by the disintegration of silica, through the action of radium radiations,” Holden continues. “The mechanism of the formation of the free silicon may perhaps be pictured in this way: The radiations may remove the four outer electrons from a silicon atom, which would then be equally shared by the two associated oxygen atoms. As a result, two free oxygen atoms and a free silicon atom would be formed. They could take no part in the crystal structure since their attractive force for other atoms would have been destroyed. Hence, they should act as small inclusions, the silicon atoms producing the light-scattering and the color so characteristic of smoky quartz. We would expect the silicon atoms to be most effective in scattering light because of their greater atomic weight, and the possibility of the escape of the oxygen atoms.”
From this scientific analysis it is clear that smoky quartz, although quite likely formed through the action of radioactive elements, is not radioactive itself, and this perfectly natural process is not detrimental to the crystals or to human beings utilizing these crystals for ornamentation, in meditation, for crystal healing, or for any other purpose.
Smoky quartz has been a favorite healing stone of shamanistic practitioners around the world for thousands of years.
According to modern day energy healers, smoky quartz works slowly and thoroughly to relieve imbalances in the physical and etheric bodies, with special emphasis on the solar plexus and its associated chakra, the third or Manipura chakra associated with personal power and vital energy. And it works on the hands and feet. Smoky quartz can, over time, help to balance the flow of vital energy throughout the physical and etheric bodies, and aids in the development of a healthy, fully functioning chakra system.
It is an aid in gently releasing blockages caused by negative energy patterns in the emotional body. Smoky quartz has been used as an aid in meditation, for energy healing, and to create a protective barrier of energy around the holder, being grounding and clearing the mind.
Our experience in working with smoky quartz both for ourselves in meditation and self treatment & with clients on the Reiki table is one of supreme protection, slow and deep healing, and gentle awakening of spirit. Smoky quartz guards our house, is a companion to the sick and is a humble & deep gift from the Mother.
