Hand-woven in Santa Cruz, CA, this necklace features an Ethiopian Opal with Silver Heart (4th) Chakra pendant lovingly strung with Ruby, Strawberry Quartz, Rose Quartz, Matte Montana Agate, and Lepidolite beads to activate and energize body, mind and spirit!
This necklace measures 17 inches (43 cm) and is woven from a vegan "sinew alternative" -- infinitely more durable than Hemp, yet earthy and organic in texture.
Every knot is tied with intention and infused with love, and every necklace is as unique as the person it adorns.
Derived from the Sanskrit word "upala" (meaning "valuable stone"), this stone consists of both colloidal silica and up to 20% water – bringing the fortitude of earth with the unfathomable mystery of water. It is considered to be the crystal of the New Age, and has been beloved by alchemists and mystics throughout the centuries for its ability to facilitate connection to the higher self and to the wisdom of the Ancients. Ethiopian Opal in particular stimulates the Sacral and Base Chakras – cleansing the energy system, cultivating strength, and helping one begin anew.
This pinecone is imbued with a Sterling Silver emblem of the 4th Chakra, the Heart Chakra. Known as “Anahata” ( meaning “unhurt”) in Sanskrit, this emblem symbolizes the boundless love and compassion that resides beneath our personal stories and suffering.
