Stone Amethyst

Stone Amethyst – its properties

  • March 24, 2018

God, instructing the Jews concerning the search for the Promised Land, commanded Moses to make a tabernacle with the tables of the Covenant, including amethysts. Jews love the amethysts instilled by the ancient Egyptians: violet with red tint stone adorns many Pharaonic regalia.

Greeks sparkling with purple light quartz was considered magical and attributed to him the ability to counteract alcohol. The Romans went even further, writing a touching legend about a nymph who did not want to surrender to Bacchus, and petrified as a sign of the firmness of her refusal. Sorry, Bacchus tried to revive the beauty, but the brilliant stone did not come to life, but only shone with the color of expensive wine…

Nowadays amethyst is loved for its accessibility and beauty. They love and cherish amethyst, in spite of its simple mineral origin, a stone of delicate quality…

The physical properties of amethyst coincide with all the parameters of quartz. Often the crystals of amethyst and quartz are fused into a single entity, and such specimens readily buy mineralogical museums.

The Meaning of the Stone Topaz

The esoteric properties of the stone are much more curious. The Greeks, who drank nothing stronger than wine, considered amethyst to be the petrified juice of a grapevine and believed the gem to be the master of intoxicating power. Throwing the amethyst into a bowl of wine, they waited for the stone to absorb intoxicating spells, leaving an exquisite bouquet of the drink intact.

Popular in ancient times, the legend developed in later times. In the Middle Ages, amethyst was attributed to the property of neutralizing any poisons (and not only alcohol, which at that time already, could be isolated from wine by evaporation). The pounded amethyst was mixed into food and drink, a ring with a stone was lowered into wine, bottles with healing medicines were plugged with amethyst plugs…

Did the stone help? For sure – especially if it was evenly and densely colored.

Color of amethyst

With the coloring of amethyst – like many quartz gems – it’s not easy. It is known that violet-red amethyst fades when heated, but is capable of returning a color close to the original, with subsequent gamma irradiation.

Physicists attribute this property of quartz to the special role of microscopic impurities. By themselves, micro inclusions scattered in the SiO2 array do not give color, but the interconnected electrons of silicon and iron atoms change their energy level and are intensively absorbed by light waves of certain lengths.

Having informed them of the energy (thermal), you can correct the absorption spectrum – as a result of which the color of the stone will change. That’s why there are amethysts in the world, the color of which is included in the range of red-violet tones but differs in the predominance of those or other shades. Pink, purple, blue-violet amethysts do not contradict its mineralogical nature, and from time to time occur in the natural environment.

Reinforced heating leads to … a change in the name of the stone. Remaining still quartz, heated to an orange-yellow color, amethyst becomes a citrine. In nature, such transformations happen. In some cases, a warm amethyst can turn green, which immediately makes it a praziolite.

Somewhere in the Brazilian outskirts are found praziolits of natural origin, but they do not differ in high jewelry quality. The fact is that the quartz is green before it is completely and irrevocably clouded by overheating. Therefore, natural praziolite, firstly, green is not noticeable, hardly noticeable; secondly – grayish and darkish; thirdly, one to one resemble a bottle of mineral water from the Caucasian spill. What creates all conditions for abuse…

Serious specialists in the coloring of stone, skillfully manipulating the heating and irradiation yet make the non-market amethysts acquire a green color, and in plenty, they are supplied to the jewelry market. The so-called “natural stone green amethyst” is natural only in the part of the origin of the stone itself. His color is artificial.

Stone Topaz

The Meaning of the Stone Topaz

  • March 24, 2018

Many precious stones are “secretive”. Some of their aesthetic content and spiritual essence is exposed. Most of the crystals find their destination, only having been in the hands of a jeweler.

Large stones with a good cut become solid, significant, desired decorations. Small, somehow polished gems cannot boast of an important value…

Topaz is also unique in its importance. His character cannot be attributed either to extroverts or too introverted ones. He never sticks out himself, but he does not hide his properties either. Analogizing with the person, it is possible to tell: topaz value knows, and submits itself exactly to the best of its capabilities.

Symbolizing wisdom, peace, constructive harmony, topaz – regardless of its color – “tame” a person. To wear topaz means to hold a staff in your hand, helping to overcome the vicissitudes of life’s path.

What does topaz stone mean?

First of all, topaz as if assuring others: “My owner is a man of good artistic taste, with plenty of money and reason.” Different colors of jewelry inserts from topaz can specify a person’s commitment to one or other life aspirations. But never the owner of the topaz will not be proud of extravagance, boast of doubtful achievements, and commit ridiculous actions.

The properties of Alexandrite

Mystic Topaz, known for its magical properties, denotes the owner’s belonging to the adepts of esoteric knowledge. It should be noted that not everyone capable of magic realizes his own calling, and can be completely satisfied with a completely mundane occupation. But if he likes the mystic-topaz, then the real purpose of the individual is to comprehend the mysteries of nature.

The exact value of blue topaz it is not always easy to determine because of the difference in the brightness of the color of the stone. The degree of modeling influence on the gem (heating, irradiation) also affects the crystal’s capabilities. It is noted that the mystical meaning of a small but intensely colored topaz of completely natural origin exceeds the magical potential of larger but darker stones.

What does the blue topaz stone represent artificial coloring? Initially, only what the owner sees in it. With careful handling, eliminating the discoloration of the crystal; and also with constant spiritual communication with the stone, its power grows. Especially useful is the inheritance of blue topaz by blood relatives, related, among other things, also with deep feelings.

Blue topaz, after passing through several “co-directed” in the spiritual sense of ownership, acquires the value of a powerful magical artifact.
