Protective and grounding.
This jewel features rutilated quartz crystal pendent set in hammered 22kt gold vermeil. The chain is 16 inches of 14 kt gold filled. Faceted clear crystal on connecting point.
Very rare... It hosts black tourmaline rutilations, which balance the the right & left hemispheres on the brain.
The pictures do not do this jewel justice as the stone has more light filtering through in reality.
Emotionally, rutilated quartz is said to be very helpful in uncovering the causes of mental issues and hang-ups. It is reputed to diminish fears and be excellent at assisting with the decision-making process.
