Power Stones for Your Wellbeing
Your personal healing gemstones can be your very personal power source and can give you many years of joy and even help balance your auric field. Gemstones have both physical and metaphysical qualities that can enhance all aspects of your well-being. The perfectly aligned crystal structure of gemstones creates an energy field that interacts with our own when you meditate with it, hold it or wear it on your body. In this way, the gemstone can be used to calm you, bring you mental clarity, increase your energy, enhance your creativity, and much more.

Keith EngelmannGlass Art Designs with Crystal Gemstones and Faceted, Polished Gems
When I meet the artist Keith and saw his glass pendants with little gems floating inside an air bubble I was truly taken and fascinated. As a jeweler I am so used to set stones in metal frames that this transcendent, unencumbered display of gems really caught my fancy and I would like to give you a chance to be enchanted with it as well. In times of soaring gold prices it brings down the price for a pendant with your favorite gemstone considerably and presents a very reasonable alternative. But the most important is its magnificence!

You might know about the amazing protective, healing and balancing properties of the Herkimer Diamond, if worn over your heart chakra. I have written a whole article about it you can read. It is the birthstone for Libra but it is so much more then that. Its abilities to protect you against electro smog, sitting in front of your computer or travelling make it an extraordinary wonderful companion. I have made many Herkimer Diamond pendants for doctors, healers, nurses, chiropractors, psychotherapists to help them strengthen their own energy field without picking up on the lower frequencies of the sick. I am totally in love with the Herkimer Diamond and its natural beauty and radiant benevolent spirit. Herkimer Diamond makes truly healing jewelry pendants for the soul.

Emerald Crystal Glass Pendant - $118
Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith EngelmannEmerald is the queen and high priestess of the Beryl group, wielding both worldly and spiritual power. Being a queen and somewhat fragile, it needs to be treated with respect, but will return to you its manifold gifts. Emerald is the birthstone of Taurus, the connoisseur of beauty and the exquisite. The Emerald is one of the most feminine representatives of the mineral kingdom: the Shakti, the divine mother, and the goddess. It is a gem for the heart chakra. Thus the Emerald is able to teach us what it means to be a powerful woman and how to come into ourselves in all our roles and challenges as women: mother, passionate tantric lover, caring wife and creative, successful and fulfilled professional. Emerald shares with you abundant energy, both physical and spiritual. It helps you to expand beyond your fear into higher wisdom, praising and enjoying life. It represents infinite consciousness expressing itself through wisdom and eternal unconditional love. Read more about the metaphysical properties of Emerald

Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith EngelmannRubellite Crystal Glass Pendant - $98
"The Rubellite, the pink Tourmaline, represents a lover of mankind, one who loves unconditionally and teaches us self-love. Self-love is often difficult to achieve. We know our weaknesses and dark side all too well and thus we are often most unforgiving and hard on ourselves. Beginning in childhood we learn to reject and negate a large part of our nature, especially our need for love and acceptance within the family. We resign ourselves to making do without those deep needs and we give up vital parts of ourselves. The Rubellite heals and strengthens us, helping us to recover those lost aspects of our nature. With its help we learn to love ourselves as we are, in our individuality and beauty. Rubellite helps us to grow and nourish our own needs." You can read more about the metaphysical properties of 67 gemstones in my book Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery: Choosing Gemstones that Delight the Eyes & Strengthen the Soul.

Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith EngelmannGreen Tourmaline Glass Pendant - $98
Green Tourmaline occurs in several different color variations, including a warm green tone, similar to a Peridot, and a dark bluish tint. Like all green gemstones, the green Tourmaline balances and regulates the physical heart. It calms the nervous system and helps us to relax and regenerate after long illnesses. Its frequency is similar to that of other green things in nature: it connects us with the soothing green balm of the rain forest and quenches our longing to be enveloped and replenished by Mother Nature. Because of his piezoelectric quality the Tourmaline is the best stone for our nervous system. It acts on the electrical flow within the body, balancing it and restoring the mind-body system and particularly the brain to proper working order. Green Tourmaline is the birthstone for Gemini.

Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith EngelmannSapphire Glass Pendant - $98
"Besides the Tourmaline the Sapphire is the only stone that occurs in all the colors of the rainbow. Each color touches us in a different way correlating to the different chakras. Sapphires are especially powerful if different colors are set together in a piece of jewelry. The rainbow symbolizes beauty and the treasure waiting for us at its end. Discovering that treasure always involves a journey. At some point in our journey we might realize that the journey itself is the goal. The journey is always happening in the Now, and the Now is all there is. The beautiful family of the Sapphires can help us to live in the Now, to enjoy ourselves as we are, to make peace with ourselves and our life."

Peridot Glass Pendant - $98
Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith Engelmann"The Peridot, sometimes called Olivine, has a unique golden-green color. It is found in numerous places in the world, including St. John Island, Australia, Brazil, Hawaii, and New Mexico. It is not a very hard stone, rating 6½ to 7 on the Mohs’ scale. Because of that the best way to wear a Peridot is as a pendant over your heart. The Peridot represents a very feminine lady—Venus and Isis in one of her disguises, ruling and nourishing the heart. It taps into the joy of living and caring and sharing. Art can be an expression of love that nourishes the soul and heart, and the Peridot is the patroness of artists and lovers."

"There is a generosity to a full heart, a loving glow that the heart wants to find a way to express. The Peridot connects the solar plexus chakra and the heart chakra and expands our creative self-expression in alignment with the heart."

Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith EngelmannAmethyst Glass Pendant - $98
"In olden times Amethyst was known as an amulet against black magic and homesickness, and as a bringer of good fortune. I see Amethyst as Merlin, the old sorcerer who looks harmless enough but in fact wields great power. In the myth he was the spiritual teacher and magician of King Arthur. Amethyst can become our individual teacher as well. This gem’s greatest gift is its ability to open us up to higher realms of reality, higher states of consciousness. It enhances meditation, connects us with our higher self and the supreme reality. The meaning of the Greek name for Amethyst is “not drunken” and it is considered to aid sobriety When we access higher planes of consciousness, where we feel ourselves held, comforted, and nourished, our longing for the anesthetizing effects of substances such as alcohol and drugs slowly dissipates as we become open to a more enjoyable and beautiful experience."

Garnet Glass Pendant - $98
Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith Engelmann"Almandine is a red garnet with a slight violet tint. The form of its crystallization gives it a kind of round crystal ball appearance. If you can find one it is a nice stone to have in your pocket to play with in order to have the stone’s energy within your aura without needing it to be set into jewelry. Almandine is a warrior of the heart, longing to express his true being as he walks the path of love. Being connected with Venus and Mars, Almandine supports our growth in relationships and friendships. This warrior is connected with the higher truth of the crown chakra: it helps to balance the Inner Man and the Inner Woman in us, helps us to rise up out of the limitations of the ego to a greater understanding of love as a state of consciousness. It might support us by asking the question, “What can I bring to this relationship?” rather than “What do I get out of it?"

In Almandine Mars and Venus—the lover and the beloved—are united and recreated on the earthly plane for the pure pleasure of experiencing each other. Almandine encourages us to partake of the enjoyment of love and relationships and to become more conscious of our role in their creation. It gives us deeper insight into the dynamics of relationships as they are projected onto the earthly playground of the cosmos.” You can read more in my book Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery.

Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith EngelmannAquamarine Glass Pendant- $98
"Uranus infuses Aquamarine with some unusual qualities and a vision beyond our usual limited mind-set, making Aquamarine the Rebel among the gems. This is the gemstone of visionaries fighting for a better life, supporting goodness and necessary changes. It urges us to seek freedom and independence and to express our uniqueness. Aquamarine is the stone of innovators, ahead of their time in many ways. It encourages us to always question our limiting beliefs with an open mind and to be willing to grow beyond them. It can help us to find our own vision and purpose in life and the courage to live them."

"Aquamarine opens and balances the throat chakra, which helps us to express our personal truth, including our true feelings. The throat chakra is an area where we all have many blocks; thus we often feel limited in our self-expression. Iron gives Aquamarine its color and energizing element. It is said to help remediate iron deficiency. With its high energy level Aquamarine restores equilibrium in over energized people who are impatient, always rushing about, overstressed, and tense."

Citrine - $ 98
Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith EngelmannCitrine is a very versatile stone and can be counted as a birthstone for Gemini, Virgo as well as Leo. Citrine is a light yellow to gold-brown colored Quartz and is a beautiful companion helping you to discover and enhance your creativity. You should know that most Citrines that are found in shops are heat treated Amethysts or Smoky Quartzes. The treated stones will be more golden or brownish, while natural Citrine is more of a pale yellow. A heat-treated stone will need some kind of healing ritual to restore it to its natural energies.

Citrine is a stone for the second or third chakra, depending on its color. It has a bubbly light energy and lifts your spirit into optimism and joy. Citrine brings in the energy of the sun and opens your mind to higher thoughts beyond fears and doubts. Citrine gives you the patience and endurance you need to focus your mind on details such as writing, planning, and putting things in their proper order.

Jewelry and Gems for Self-Discovery by SGlass Pendants by Keith EngelmannRuby - $98
The Ruby is one of the most uplifting gems relating to all aspects of the loving heart and unconditional love. Stimulating your own power and creative self expression in alignment with the heart, the Ruby is the warrior of the heart, the knight of our dreams. It touches the root chakra and the heart chakra, helping gently but powerfully to bring energy up from the first chakra to the heart. The root chakra is our connection with the earth, our grounding, ego identity, survival instincts, anger, sex drive, and life force in general. The heart chakra is the seat of our emotions of love in all its aspects, from self-love to unconditional love. It is the site of unresolved wounds suffered in love and childhood experiences—but it is also home to forgiveness and compassion.

The Ruby is a stone for lovers and their subtler sexual energies. The whole arena of tantric love belongs to Ruby. The wearer of Ruby loves to play and enjoy the physical senses in all their variations and possibilities. The Ruby is best worn in a pendant over the heart, reflecting its connection with the heart. It is a birthstone for Libra, Leo and Pisces. You can read more about other birthstones in my articles.
