Grandidierite - if you haven’t yet experienced it, you must. First discovered in Madagascar, and named after a French explorer - Alfred Grandidier - who studied the beautiful country.. this teal-hued gem has the reputation of being one of the rarest minerals on the planet. Highest-quality Grandidierite fetches incredibly high prices.. and select pieces travel in museum exhibitions so that people can behold this rare, blue beauty. Not much is written about the metaphysical qualities of Grandidierite.. but a few qualities seem generally agreed upon.. many of which I’ve experienced for myself. It is intensely detoxifying for the body and auric field. Like a spiritual vacuum cleaner, it works to just rid us of stagnant, unwanted energy. Although the color indicates it as a Throat Chakra stone, it feels deeply connected to the heart as well. (Of course, as we know, those two centers are very much connected.) It seems to carry all the calmness, tranquility, and peacefulness that these blue/green stones are beloved for — right to the middle of our chest, washing over us with soothing waves of energy. I am truly in love with these stones.
The crystal hangs on delicate, yellow Gold filled chain - accented with beads of Ethiopian Opal and Blue Apatite. It hangs at a length of 17”.
The pendant has gone through a copper-plating process known as electroforming. It deposits a thick layer of copper onto the pendant - which also works to enhance the inherent energetic properties of the stone itself, as copper is an excellent conductor.
Copper has been worn for its healthful benefits for millennia; copper jewelry dates back to ancient Egyptian times. The absorption of micro minerals has proven helpful in joint stiffness, pain, and inflammation. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus it's simply beautiful to wear!
I charge every crystal with healing reiki energy, and cleanse it with white sage prior to shipment. It arrives carefully packaged with a protective, hand-crafted blend of herbs and petals.
