This is a 19.58 gram, red-pink with golden accents, old-stock spinel from Burma, 1.2” by 1.1” by 0.4”. She is a single crystal, but not in the typical bi-pyramidal structure … rather flattened and terminated at the end into tiny crystals. She is totally fascinating … you are going to have a blast with a loupe, investigating her incredible beauty!
I had never worked with spinel before and I was surprised to see the color variation within this lot. This one appealed because she just seemed to blend the vibrations of the heart with that of the Primal Chakra. Now, on a deeper level, it was a rather strange sensation – as if she added compassion, empathy, tenderness and dozens of other similar qualities to that of the core Self. We so spend a lot of time looking for our Self and sometimes, we are disappointed in what we find – the Self isn’t what we expected, isn’t a super-star, isn’t wonderful, etc. So we put our Self down and discount that glorious expression. This Spirit reminds you that as many of these wonderful qualities that we extend to others, we must also extend them to our Self … allow our Self expression, companion, empathy and all the others. Like rose quartz, she works with Self love, but unlike rose quartz, she adds the element of integration into what we find. She is a sweet companion and a wonderful Spirit to keep close at hand!
