I made this pendant with polymer clay, a beautiful Quartz crystal point,
and the following gemstones:
Amethyst: Is known as a dream stone. The amethyst has long been used to open
the spiritual and psychic centers, making it one of the power stones. It is also used as
a meditation aid when worn as a necklace. The amethyst symbolizes piety, humility,
sincerity and spiritual wisdom.
Lapis Lazuli: Is an ancient gem. Egyptian cultures believed it to offer protection.
The ancient Egyptians used Lapis Lazuli as a symbol of Truth. The very earliest
cultures valued Lapis lazuli more highly than gold.
Peridot: This stone was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a
gift from Mother Nature. It is considered a sacred stone of lightness and beauty. It is a
protector against negative emotions. It opens the Heart Chakra. It is also useful in
releasing emotionally suppressed trauma, soul/heart consciousness,
and expressing love in action.
Garnet: This stone is said to be a stone of purity and truth as well as a symbol of
love and compassion. It will helps with depression, self-esteem, one's own security
level and spiritual awareness. This stone is also said to bring constancy to
friendships and to be helpful for stimulating success in business.
Carnelian: This stone has a long and storied past, and was once considered strictly the
property of the noble class. People holding a high social status were often buried with
this gem stone. This stone is said to protect from bad vibrations and aid in calming.
Carnelian is an energy booster. It helps the insecure person to find strength within
them so they can come into their own.
Quartz Crystal: Quartz Crystal Points have great energy for Healing, and Energy or
Spiritual work. Quartz amplifies energies of other stones around it or other stones used with
it. Quartz Crystal points are especially useful for healing tools.
