Handmade Mystic Forest Necklace With Peridot, Prasiolite, Ruby Fuschite, Haematite, Ametrine & Turquoise Potatoe
This beautiful mystical necklace as I see it was ‘conceived’ under the January New Moon. The New Moon signifies the opportunity to start anew and refresh your dreams and desires. It is a time of magic!
I had in my mind a mystical creature, a woman, a fairy, I am not sure, dancing amidst purples and greens in the most lush forest with spinning golden stars fluttering around her.
I tend to intuitively sing what comes to me when making these creations. This time it was the word ‘Om’ sung repetitively as a mantra, both of which you can find out below.
This necklace has been hand knotted with silk within an infusion containing the ancient healing oils of frankincense.
Getting to the ancient root of it all, mantra, at its core, is the basis of all religious traditions, scriptures, and prayers. According to Pandit Vamadeva Shastri (Dr. David Frawley), when carefully chosen and used silently, mantras are said to have the ability to help alter your subconscious impulses, habits, and afflictions. Mantras, when spoken or chanted, direct the healing power of Prana (life force energy) and, in traditional Vedic practices, can be used to energize and access spiritual states of consciousness.
At the end of the day, the mantra is meant to bring you back to simplicity. We live in such a complex world that it’s easy to get lost in all the details. Mantras can help you circle back to the simplistic approach to life and focus on those things that inspire you and truly make you happy.
What does Om mean?
In Hinduism, Om (also spelled Aum) is a Hindu sacred sound that is considered the greatest of all mantras. The syllable Om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m (in Sanskrit, the vowels a and u combine to become o) and the symbol’s threefold nature is central to its meaning. It represent several important triads:
- The three worlds – earth, atmosphere, and heaven
- The three major Hindu gods – Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva
- The three sacred Vedic scriptures – Rg, Yajur, and Sama
Thus Om mystically embodies the essence of the entire universe. This meaning is further deepened by the Indian philosophical belief that God first created sound and the universe arose from it. As the most sacred sound, Om is the root of the universe and everything that exists and it continues to hold everything together.
Peridot is associated with the heart chakra, and can be used to balance and stimulate that chakra. It is a stone of compassion. It has a friendly energy and is excellent for healing. It assists in rebirth and renewal of all kinds. Peridot also bring abundance and prosperity. It enhances the healing and harmony of relationships of all kinds, but particularly marriage. Peridot is used in crystal healing to lessen stress, especially in relationships, anger and jealousy, slow aging, and heal ulcers and digestive problems. Please note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information. It also assists in finding what is lost, and strengthens ESP abilities. It has been said to make a shield of protection around the body of any wearer of peridot.
Prasiolite (green amethyst)
Prasiolite is named for the Greek words “prason” meaning leek, and lithos “stone”, for its leek green color. It’s technically a greened amethyst. In metaphysical lore, Prasiolite is a stone of originality and courage and can foster self-reliance in all situations. Prasiolite is also a prosperity stone, said to attract abundance. It can help strengthen and express emotions as well as the mind and will. It is also said to be highly beneficial for prophesy. It is used in crystal healing for cleansing the body of toxins of all kinds, tumors, stomach acid, ulcers, assimilation of nutrients, and healing the whole body from a spiritual level. Please note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information.
Ruby crystals are sometimes found within the Ruby Fuschite. When this occurs, it is known as Ruby Fuschite. In this case, the healing properties will be a combination of both Ruby and Fuschite gemstones.
Zodiac – Aquarius
Fuschite helps us to understand issues concerning our daily lives; such as stress, physical health, routines, career and environment. It brings about a need to focus on basic concerns directly related to interactions with other people and the material world. Fuschite channels information regarding holistic and herbal remedies, giving suggestions as to the most holistic action to take and receiving guidance on health matters and well-being.
Psychologically, Fuschite teaches true self worth, assisting in the elimination of a tendency towards martyrdom or issues of servitude. Fuschite helps to overcome codependency and aids in a speedy recovery from trauma, both emotionally and physically.
Fuschite increases the energy of other crystals and helps in the transfer of their energy. It shifts energy into positive channels, therefore releasing blockages caused by excess energy. Fuschite stabilises spinal column alignment and increases flexibility in the musculoskeletal system. It treats repetitive strain injury, carpal tunnel syndrome and also aids in balancing the red and white blood cell ratio.
Self worth and resilience
Hematite crystals have an excellent grounding and balancing energy, as well as being a powerful aid to stimulate the mind.
They enhance memory and evoke deep thought. They have a highly protective energy and are good to help women who lack courage.
If you desire to stimulate your mind for higher learning, they are most helpful, especially in the field of mathematics and technical studies.
They will assist the development of logical thought processes, and help you to reach the highest capacity possible. They will heighten self confidence, will power and self-esteem.
The energy of these stones have a strong physical grounding energy, that vibrates strongly at the base or root chakra, and they are known for their action to provide pain relief.
Ametrine is a natural combination of amethyst and citrine. Ametrine energies are said to stimulate the intellect and rid the aura of negative energy. It is also said to be helpful for releasing negative emotional programming.
Ametrine is used mystically to aid in meditation, boost psychic abilities, relieve tension, disperse negativity and help to eliminate prejudice. It is related primarily to the Crown and Root Chakras.
Real turquoise in itself is pretty hard to get hold of and very expensive. So as a bit of ingenuity and skilled craftsmanship there is now jewellery being made out of “Pomme de Terre” or literally “Apple of the Earth”, fashioned in to bear the resemblance of different stones, in this case turquoise. I would certainly have believed that these little pieces of organic abundance created by mother nature were turquoise had I not been told otherwise.
Some of you may know that the potatoe has a colourful and abundant history. The Inca Indians in Peru were the first to cultivate potatoes around 8,000 BC to 5,000 B.C. You can read more about the history of this now every day vegetable here: Potato Goodness
Potatoe jewellery takes at least two weeks to ‘set’ before they are even ready to be painstakingly morphed in to looking like semi precious gems.
The seven chakras are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows through. Blocked energy in our seven chakras can often lead to illness, so it’s important to understand what each chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing.
