Here are some gorgeous summer flowers in shades of violet! We started with lovely purple fluorite flowers framed in corrugated silver rondelles. Above the flowers are large faceted amethyst spheres which are enclosed in pretty Bali silver beadcaps and more rondelles. They hang 1 1/2 inches below the sterling earwires. As with all of our earrings, these come in ziplock bags to keep tarnish away and have clear soft rubber earnuts to keep them securely in place.
Revered for millennia as the "Great Healer" gemstone, amethyst carries with it the gift of opening one to the wisdom of the ages. One source indicates that DaVinci himself believed and wrote that this glorious stone not only aided in intellectual pursuits, but also protected the wearer from harm.
Indeed, amethyst has been one of the most prolific stones used as amulets talismans throughout history! Along with other varieties of quartz, this lovely violet stone is also associated with the world's great spiritual Teachers, especially the Buddha, although one branch of "new age" thought also calls it the "Christ" Ray, after the great Teacher who came 500 years after the Buddha.
Modern metaphysicians and occultists refer to the Violet Ray, as violet is the fastest vibrating color our human eyes can see of the spectrum; the wealth of qualities which amethyst brings includes assisting one in living by right action, helping one to balance out from mental chaos and remain grounded, even in the face of danger, addiction, overwhelming thought forms, with wisdom as the desired and hopefully-attained result. The two stone of the Brow Chakra help one in opening the Crown as well, drawing in highest spiritual vibrations to aid in our quest to become the kind of souls to which our highest selves can aspire.
One thing to keep in mind is that "occult" (from the Latin word for eye), simply means "hidden" or that which is not generally known by the public, but is studied by those who seek the Mysteries.
Fluorite is a gentle stone, yet incredibly protective Below as well as Above: from the mundane plane of Earth to the Astral realms, fluorite's gifts are mani-fold. The blues within these stones free one's ability to speak, from an open Throat chakra, strummings of the heart and mind. The greens gentle the Heart chakra with healing for both one's Self as well as others; the violets and indigos resonate the intuitive knowledge and wisdom which spring from one's Brow/Third Eye chakra, and accumulated life-lessons should flow with ease in one's words to others.
Flourite also works like a Veil to the Mysteries. From disorganized thought, from the chaos of streams-of-consciousness, flourite allows one to lift the veil enough to scry the patterns, enabling understanding in the midst of the World's mind. This silky and ephemeral stone can invite dreams; fluorite also can assist one to weave from disconnected strands of images and thoughts a beautiful tapestry. At the same time, working with this stone a lot may assist individual meditative workings; many have found greater ease in communing with Spirit/Goddess and God during everyday life, even amidst the hubbub of the mundane world. What gifts of clear sight and envisionings this gemstone brings to the world!
