    Tips for Choosing

    Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. As a gem rises in quality, its therapeutic potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.

    Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, larger gems are more potent than smaller ones. If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing somewhat smaller gems. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems.

    Quality and gem size being equal, longer necklaces are more therapeutically potent than shorter ones because they contain more gemstone mass. Consider your comfort when choosing; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. All necklaces 23 inches or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; longer necklaces have no clasp.

    When to Use

    You Are Experiencing

    • A sense of being stuck in old patterns, habits, or attachments
    • Feeling limited by your relationship with money, power, religion, or society

    You Want to

    • Let go of limiting habits and attitudes regarding wealth, power, religion, or society
    • Improve the balance between your introverted and extroverted modes of expression
    • Support the health of your nervous system

    Purple Ray eases your passage through your next spiritual gateway by releasing long-standing attachments. It helps you let go of old habits and attitudes regarding wealth, power, religion, and society. Purple Ray also helps break up certain patterns that keep the purple color ray from entering your body and prevent you from accepting the higher consciousness facilitated by Amethyst. In this necklace, ten sections containing three different sizes of Amethyst are separated by sets of Biwa Pearl. Separating each section of Amethyst from each set of Pearl is a 14-karat gold bead.

    Although spirituality can be found in the institutions of religion, it is harder for some people to find it there than it is for others. Purple Ray’s gift is to lead you beyond any subconscious limitations that these institutions may have imposed on you in lifetimes past. Purple Ray is for those who want to progress beyond these influences and would like help doing so.

    Pearl brings a water vibration to this necklace, gold contributes a metal element, and Amethyst offers an earth element. The number ten, represented by the ten sets of gemstones, brings a wood element. The rhythmically increasing numbers of Amethysts toward a central concentration at the front of the necklace represents the element of fire. These are the five elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The five Pearls in each Pearl section reinforce this concept of five elements.

    To achieve a higher and more open state of awareness requires physical stability and support. These five elements—water, metal, earth, wood, and fire—correspond to fundamental energies in your body. Cooperation among these energies is required to build a solid foundation for higher consciousness. The five elements incorporated in Purple Ray help lay this foundation in your physical body.

    Within our emotions, two forces are constantly at work. These can be characterized as passive and active, introverted and extroverted, or inflowing and out-flowing. An emotionally healthy person can experience and express herself in both these emotional modes, as situations require. Many people, however, are overly developed or deficient in one or both of these modes. In Purple Ray, the inflowing, quiet force is represented by Pearl, and the out-flowing, extroverted force is championed by Amethyst. This necklace teaches both these modes of expression and corrects any deficiencies or imbalances associated with them.

    Purple Ray also relaxes the grip of limiting behavioral patterns. These patterns are a key aspect of our karma, or cycles of action and reaction. We repeat certain cycles of behavior again and again until we finally break the cycle and resolve the karma. Through the rhythmic expression of its energy, Purple Ray helps us let go of these patterns and embrace change. The necklace’s design generates this rhythmic expression through its ten sections of five, seven, and nine Amethysts. The varying sizes of the Amethyst sections encourage your patterns to stretch, relax, and ease their grip. Each time energy moves around the necklace, you and your patterns are stretched a little more, until you finally outgrow and release them.

    Gold in Purple Ray

    The gold beads in Purple Ray help focus the necklace’s energies on purging the influences of material institutions. Gold has long played a role in the wealth and power of government and religious organizations. In this necklace, it symbolizes their rigidity. The fact that the gold beads are hollow also signifies that certain old concepts and images have become empty of meaning.

    Amethyst Sphere Size

    The three sizes of Amethyst in this necklace support Purple Ray's mission to break up patterns. It also helps the necklace resonate with people in different states of consciousness: some people are more in tune with what 8-mm Amethyst can give, while others are more in tune with 4- or 6-mm Amethyst. The same person can also be more receptive to the energies of different sizes of Amethyst at different times of the day. The different size Amethysts might also work on different aspects of the person’s being at the same time, depending on which aspect is most in harmony with a certain size. In Purple Ray, the mind, emotions, and body can choose from the three different sizes, taking what they need from each.

    Purple Ray necklaces contain Amethyst, Biwa Pearl, and 14-karat gold beads.

    Amethyst color occurs naturally in a wide range from light to dark purple. Therapeutic Amethyst falls somewhere in the middle of this range and resembles the vibrant purple seen in a rainbow. As Amethyst moves away from this optimal color and becomes darker or lighter, its therapeutic value diminishes. The lightest purple is not the gemstone known as Lavender but only a washed-out Amethyst.

    Clarity also plays a key role in Amethyst quality. Flaws and inclusions, or foreign matter, detract from its ability to radiate its healing energy. A tiny amount of flaws in a sphere is acceptable. However, when evaluating Amethyst, be aware that flaws disrupt or block the sphere’s ability to radiate its energy in direct proportion to the flaws’ size. The exceptions are minor flaws that have a prismatic effect. When a sphere with these flaws is moved in natural light, the Amethyst displays a rainbow or partial rainbow of colors. This property is an asset. All other flaws and inclusions—especially cloudiness, dark flecks, internal fractures, or pieces of the rock matrix in which the Amethyst grew—inhibit the Amethyst's energy and should be avoided. Poor drill holes or any damage to the sphere’s surface, such as scratches, gouges, or chipped areas, also render Amethyst non-therapeutic.

    To judge Amethyst quality accurately requires experience and the opportunity to compare many Amethyst specimens of different grades and colors. Amethyst of ideal color with no inclusions is extremely rare.

    Wear It Around Your Neck

    The best way to experience the therapeutic effects of a Purple Ray necklace is to wear it around your neck, preferably with the largest section of Amethyst over your heart. To ease spinal or structural limitations, you can reverse the necklace and wear the largest section over the vertebra at the back of your neck.

    At night while you are sleeping, you can wear the necklace or keep it within three feet of your body to maintain your connection with the gems. 

    Time Guidelines

    Purple Ray can be worn continuously. However, it is always wise to be sensitive to your body’s responses. If you start to feel a headache or significant discomfort, take the necklace off for a while. Then allow your body time to adjust to the changes initiated by the gems by wearing them for only an hour or two a day. Gradually increase this time until you can comfortably wear the gems for as long and often as you wish.

    Cleanse Purple Ray Regularly

    To maintain their effectiveness, therapeutic gemstones need regular care. As the gems help us release energetic impurities, some of these energies cling to the gems’ surface and inhibit their ability to work at their peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Purple Ray necklace. Learn more about these methods.

    Plant Rejuvenation: 2 – 3 times a week, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant or lay the necklace in its branches.

    Salt Bed: 2 – 3 times a week, lay the gems in a half-inch of salt for at least an hour or overnight. Place a thin natural-fiber cloth between the salt and the gems.

    Water Rinse: Rinse the gems 2 – 3 times a week.

    Sunbath: Every 1 - 2 weeks, lay the gems in sunlight for a maximum of 20 minutes at a time.

    Caution: Avoid clay cleansing, which will dull the Biwa Pearl’s polish.

    When Your Necklace First Arrives

    When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with consciousness and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” By opening yourself to the gems’ energies and consciously cooperating with the process of change, you can greatly enhance the gemstones’ benefits.
