The VEGA Necklace - named after the Vega Star System, is raw and natural Amazonite, rimmed with 24k gold plating, on a vermeil gold chain (18k gold-plated 925 sterling silver).
Amazonite is a beautiful turquoise-green, with white streaks through it.
Chain length: 16" (40.6cm), 18" (45.5cm), 24" (61cm) or 30" (76cm). 24" length sits on the chest (so your crystal sits on your heart). Perfect to wear as is or layered. Our 16" and 24" chains are curb chains. Our 18" and 30" chains are ball chains.
Pendant size: due to the natural state of our crystals, every pendant has a unique size, shape and colour. Our pendants range anywhere around 4cm and 5cm long.
Care: while crystals are not fragile, we recommend looking after your crystals and handle with care. To get the most of your crystal, we recommend 'charging' and 'cleansing' them in the sun, once per week. All of our crystals are natural, without the use of dyes and gamma-irradiation (heat to induce colour).
All natural crystals possess an amazing energy of natural healing and protection. We recommend having a crystal on you at all times, in your living space, your work space and even under your pillow, while you sleep.
The meaning of Amazonite: Amazonite beckons in captivating shades of turquoise-green, promising to soothe the spirit and calm the soul. Its energy is as powerful as the river for which it is named, and as bold as the legendary women warriors with whom it is connected, yet it tempers aggression, tames the irrational and stills the disquiet. It provides harmony and balance.
Called the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth, Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one’s own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgement or confrontation with others, to live in alignment with those beliefs and values. It provides the freedom to express one’s thoughts and feelings, and to set strong and clear boundaries - both internally as self-discipline; and externally on what one is willing to experience or in defining personal space.
As a metaphysical healer, Amazonite soothes the soul and aligns the physical body to the etheric. It is particularly rejuvenating in connecting the heart to the mouth, enhancing loving communication on all levels. It balances one’s masculine/feminine energies as well as many aspects of the personality. It awakens compassion for others by allowing one to perceive both sides of a problem and accepting differing points of view.
The majority of our crystal pendants are handcarved by villagers in India. Within these villages, many of the women (and men) can not work; yet they possess amazing skills. There is no factory, they simply work from their homes. We're primarily focusing on empowering these amazing people. Unlike here, every cent makes a huge difference to their lives.
