Kali is the creator of life and the bringer of death - a never ending cycle. Work with Kali to let go of the ego, to begin a new endeavour, to release old behavioral patterning and outdated beliefs. On the one hand she represents uncontained chaos and destruction and the other, a fiercely protective mother and strong feminine power. Such is the duplicity of life.
The Kali necklace is hand knotted in a mala style, but does not have 108 beads. It is approximately 28", so it is large enough to easily slip over the head and does not have a clasp. The pendant drops about 2.5 from there and has a prayer box attached to the large turquoise pendant. Beads used in the necklace are Turquoise, Aquamarine, Blue Apatite, Tibetan Etched Agate, Amazonite, Smoky Quartz, Iolite, Tibetan Skull beads, and Garnet.
The bracelets come as a set of two. Beads used in the set are Turquoise, Aquamarine, Blue Apatite,Tibetan Etched Agate, Amazonite, Peruvian Clear Quartz, Smoky Quartz.
Not all beads are used in both the bracelets and necklace. Descriptions below will indicate variations.
Turquoise (necklace pendant and large blue bead in bracelet)
has been used in jewelry for thousands of years. One of the oldest known examples is a bracelet belonging to the Egyptian queen Zer who ruled around 5500 BCE. Many Native American tribes also valued this stone believing it to be a bridge between Earth and Sky, grounding while remaining open to Spirit. Turquoise promotes empathy, yet stabilizes mood swings, making it good for use with panic attacks or depression. It stimulates the Third Eye for use in mediation and activates the Throat Chakra, aiding in communication. Turquoise is a stone of self-forgiveness, self-acceptance and release from beliefs that no longer serve.
Aquamarine (5mm light blue, faceted beads)
was once used as a talisman for sailors and believed to be the treasure of mermaids. With its luminous, cool blue and blue-green hues, it stimulates both the Heart and Throat Chakras. Being a Water element stone, Aquamarine is calming and cooling and has a refreshing energy. Connecting the wearer with the subconscious and the deepest of emotions, it stimulates the flow of communication from the Heart to the Throat and lends courage and clarity in speaking one's truth.
Blue Apatite (8mm polished, blue beads)
stimulates the 3rd Eye Chakra and helps with clearing and honing inner vision and psychic ability, while enhancing general mental functioning. It can aid in accessing Past Life records and assists in learning how to apply past life lessons to the current life, understanding any karmic roots for physical imbalances. Keep Blue Apatite near your head for lucid dreaming and astral travel.
Etched Tibetan Agate (8mm matte, brown, black and gray beads)
is an Earth Energy stone, that grounds the wearer while stimulating the crown Chakra and encouraging the receiving of Divine Knowledge. It is an excellent stone for protection and used by Shamans to travel between worlds. Agate aids in the healing of physical and emotional wounds and is used when summoning feats requiring great strength - physical, mental or emotional.
Amazonite (8mm matte, light blue/tan beads)
stimulates the Heart and Throat Chakras and encourages speaking one's truth from the heart, while calming fears of conflict and confrontation. It is a wonderful stone for someone who feels unclear about who they are or what they want. Amazonite aids in walking your talk.
Peruvian Quartz (8mm clear quartz - bracelet only)
Quartz is one of the most plentiful minerals in the world and makes up about 12% of the Earth's crust. Quartz crystals have the property of piezoelectricity, which means that they can transform mechanical energy into electromagnetic energy, and are used in many products we use today like watches and radios. All of the Quartz family crystals are excellent for uses involving energy amplification, programming, and memory. A programmed crystal stores information to be retrieved and amplified later, making them excellent for manifestation work.
Smoky Quartz (6x10mm faceted rondelle beads)
is a powerful stone for grounding and balancing. It stimulates the Crown Chakra and is excellent to use in connecting with your higher self. As it amplifies the truth, it works as a detoxifier helping us to recognize and break free of negative emotions while clarifying the path forward.
Iolite (8mm polished, dark blue beads - necklace only)
activates the third Eye and is an excellent stone for use in shamanic journeying. It illuminates the path to the unconscious and aids in recognizing areas of opportunity for personal and physic growth. Iolite assists with melding conscious thought with intuitive knowing while strengthening energetic links between the mind and the heart.
Skull Beads (carved yak bone - necklace only)
In meditation, the skull is used as a reminder to reflect on impermanence. By accepting death and the passing of things, we can truly embrace living and being in the present moment. These beads are hand carved from Tibetan yak bone.
Garnet (8mm dark red beads - necklace only)
Evidence of human use of Garnets has been found as far back as the Bronze Age. It comes in several colors, but most commonly red. Garnet can activate and amplify other crystals, and clear negative chakra energy. It stimulates expanded awareness, including past-life recall. Red Garnet can help control self-destructive behaviors, aiding in releasing outdated beliefs and ingrained patterns. Red, represents love and attunes to the Heart energy, revitalizing feelings and enhancing sexuality.
