Ruby with Pink Sapphires and Petroleum Quartz Queen Talisman
Revered in many cultures throughout history, Ruby has always been a talisman of passion, protection and prosperity. It was worn as an amulet or charm to ward off plague and pestilence, warned its wearer of impending danger, kept the body safe, and banished sadness and foolish thoughts. It was reputed to bring its owner peace, drive away frightful dreams, restrain lust, and to help resolve disputes. Burmese legend declares inserting a Ruby into the flesh would make one completely invulnerable.
Today, Ruby’s metaphysical properties are no less astounding. This exquisite crystal emanates the pure Red ray with a vibrancy unsurpassed in the mineral kingdom. It actively stimulates the Base Chakra, increasing vitality and chi, the life-force energy, throughout the physical body and into the spirit. It promotes a clear mind, increased concentration and motivation, and brings a sense of power to the wearer, a self-confidence and determination that overcomes timidity and propels one toward prosperity and achievement.
Ruby initiates the sensual pleasures of life. It stirs the blood and stimulates the heart, encouraging one to enjoy being in the physical world. It increases desire and sexual energy, and may be used to activate the kundalini. Ruby has always been associated with love, especially faithful passionate commitment and closeness. In antiquity Rubies were considered to be perfect wedding stones.
Ruby is associated with Sekhmet, the Egyptian Goddess of War and is the traditional birthstone for July.
To the ancient and medieval world, Sapphire represented the pinnacle of heavenly hope and faith, and was believed to bring protection, good fortune and spiritual insight. It was a symbol of power and strength, but also of kindness and wise judgment. As a talisman, Sapphire was thought to preserve chastity, discover fraud and treachery, protect its wearer from poison, plague, fever and skin diseases, and had great power in resisting black magic and ill-wishing. It healed ailments of the eyes, increased concentration, and would lose luster if worn by an intemperate or impious person.
Clear Quartz is by far the most versatile and multidimensional stone in the mineral world. Unlike most other stones with relatively fixed properties, it is said that clear quartz can be 'programmed' by one's focus intention to assist one in achieving a goal. Clear Quartz is also a stone of light, bringing heightened spiritual awareness to whoever wears, carries, or meditates with it. Clear Quartz can be used to amplify the energies of other stones or a group of stones. It can be used for almost any metaphysical purpose.
