This most special set of Spirit Beads I call "The Journey".. It features an exquisite Veracruz Amethyst pendant set in yellow gold - suspended from a strand of Selenite, Onyx, and Amethyst with gold accents on sienna-colored silk.
The process of hand-knotting these Spirit Beads involves an incredible amount of time, love, and meditation. They are reminiscent of mala, or prayer, beads.. some of the oldest and most sacred tools in several cultures. The intention and energy within each strand often makes itself known during the creation.
This particular variety of Amethyst from Veracruz, Mexico.. holds a much higher vibration than its other forms. It is renowned for the states of meditation that people can experience when working with it - being especially useful for those who otherwise have trouble entering a deeply meditative state. Veracruz Amethyst strongly stimulates the Third Eye Chakra, strengthening the pineal gland.. but also, unlike most other varieties of the stone, works strongly with the Heart Chakra - allowing us to bring the deep spiritual lessons into our everyday interactions with those around us.
Selenite is also high vibration crystal that cleanses the aura of negative energy built up, both within the physical and the etheric body. Using Selenite can be powerful for activating dormant abilities from past lives. Also - selenite is often used to cleanse and charge other crystals - so layering this with multiple stones is clever as you're constantly clearing and cleansing them.
Onyx grounds us into the Earth, providing strength and stability, while our energies mingle with the ether. It rids us of negative energies, and wards away both energetic and physical toxicity. It is helpful, especially when working with such "high-vibe" stones - to stay just a little bit grounded.
The beads are approx. 34" in length, with the pendant measuring an additional 2.25".
I charge every piece 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.
Please note: Spirit Beads, as well as all crystal jewelry, requires gentleness when wearing or handling. Please refrain from getting them wet, as that may weaken or fray the silk. Take care with these special stones, and they will take care of you in return.
