"Tuwa" - Crystal Vortex Energy Necklace

"Tuwa" is the Hopi word for "Earth". The Hopi were one of the many Native American tribes
here in Arizona.
This piece was created with the intention of healing and crystal energy, as well as sacred site and
vortex energies.

I created this necklace using a beautiful Quartz Crystal point that I took with me to several sacred
sites around Arizona. This is a natural faceted Quartz. It has beautiful windows and very natural
inclusions. It is beautifully and naturally faceted, and has small imperfections as such. I did small
ceremonies at these sites to collect the energies from these places into the 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.

I brought this crystal home after taking it on these sacred travels and made this beautiful
necklace using this exact crystal, Sari Silk from India, Copper, Deerskin Leather, and Turquoise.
It has a pretty little moon charm and Turquoise drop with copper wire working.
The moon symbolizes many things including: Intuition, Renewal, Wonder, Cycles,
Mystery and Illumination.

Below are properties of the stones, metal, and descriptions and photos of the ceremonies and sites
where this crystal was taken and charged/cleansed/energized!

Turquoise: Is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in
many ancient cultures. If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer
from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also
brings peace to the home. Turquoise carries great wisdom of basic truth within it.
Turquoise also represents the Throat Chakra - Vissudha - with the attributes of: ability to
verbalize, expressing truth through power of the spoken word.

Copper: Copper is a great conductor of energy and amplifies the energy of any stones used with
it. Copper has long been used as a healing metal.  
The spiral shape represents a vortex of energy and a path to raised vibrations.

I traveled with these crystals to Sedona, Arizona. Sedona is said to have the highest amount of
vortex energy in one given place, in the whole world.

The first place I took the crystal was to Montezuma's Well. This is a very sacred and spiritual
place with very sacred and ancient waters.
I have included some photos of the ceremony, prayers and blessings that were preformed on these
crystals at these sacred sites.
The Hohokam,  Hopi, Zuni, and Yavapai all recount stories of their ancestors living here and some
of them even have legends that their people were birthed from this sacred Sinote.
The well continues to give water to this day. A small spring comes out of the rocks just down from
the well and this is where I held a small ceremony. The Sinagua used the waters for irrigation of
their crops and the limestone canals are still there. These waters are held as very sacred and are
used in spiritual ceremonies.  I blessed and held each of the crystals under the flowing spring from
Montezuma's Well water and infused each of the crystals with the ancient and spiritual energies
from this water and this sacred site. (photo of me doing this is shown below).

The second place I took the crystal was to Bell Rock in Sedona, Arizona. Bell Rock is said to
have one of the strongest vortex areas in all of Sedona.
My twin sister and our Dad enjoyed a beautiful hike around the mountain. I did another small
ceremony with the 7 crystals I brought along. (photo shown below).

The third place I took the crystal to was Oak Creek, near Cathedral Rock. It had been raining
and the waters were muddy with the red dirt. I let the waters flow over each crystal to collect the
energy from this gorgeous place called Red Rock Crossing.
(photo shown below).

The last place I took the crystal was to Boynton Canyon, another of Sedona's sacred vortex
areas. It was such an amazing feel there! The walls looked like there was once ancient temples
carved into them. (Photo shown below).

This amazing crystal has been blessed, cleansed, infused, and had prayers and ceremonies done
with it at each of these sacred sites in Sedona, Arizona to help it to carry all of these sacred,
spiritual, and ancient energies. Along with the properties from the Quartz Crystal itself, it has
some awesome and great energy! Perfect for your own blessing and healing ceremonies, as well
as wearing them just to soak in the energies!

The Quartz pendant has a beautiful and sparkling dichroic, handmade glass cabochon set into the
deerskin leather with sun ray symbols around it, which I hand burned. The cabochon is a vibrant
pink with hints of aqua, blue, yellow and green. The Quartz pendant measures 2 and 1/16 inches in
length, from tip of crystal point to top of leather bale. It measures about 13/16 of an inch across at
widest point. It comes on braided Sari Silk ribbon that measures 29 inches in total length.
