Item details



golden rutilated quartz, sterling silver, freshwater pearl, citrine, pyrite

The shadings and patterns that occur in natural stones and minerals are a constant wonderment to me. "Mother Earth" features Golden Rutilated Quartz -- natural Quartz Crystal with strands of Golden Rutile running through it.

The necklace includes a pendant of Golden Rutilated Quartz set in .925 Sterling Silver, along with chips and faceted "coins" of the same gemstone. Also included are Freshwater Pearls, Citrine, rough nuggets of natural Pyrite (also known as "Fool's Gold") and tiny beads of Thai Hill Tribe Silver* and Rajasthani (Indian) Silver. It closes with a Sterling Silver toggle clasp.

17 1/2" long, excluding pendant.


In creating any necklace, I first select a focal piece, and then choose the various stones to complete it through an instinctive (and fun!) process. After lighting some incense and putting on some music that suits my mood that day (new age, world music, nature sounds, classical or soft jazz), I hold the pendant or focal stone in my hand as I look over ALL of the hundreds of types of stone beads in my collection, and choose several (way more than what will eventually be included - usually 20 or more types) that look and feel "right." Next, I narrow things down by repeating the process among the beads I first selected, and place handfuls of about a dozen different types in the old African Mancala game board I use as my beading palette. I then choose complementary glass seed beads (often used as spacers) and a clasp, and begin beading - entirely by instinct. Often, I will get to a certain point and begin over again, until the necklace that is meant to be reveals itself. Sometimes, I find that a stone I hadn't originally chosen is screaming to be included, and I always honor that. Not all of the stones in the final palette are used, and usually the piece turns out entirely differently than what I had originally envisioned. It is a process that feeds my soui. I am inspired by the colors and textures of the materials I work with, and by my spirit guides (all animals! - see my profile), as well as by the constant presence when I'm beading of my two beloved rescued dogs (O'Keeffe and Teddy) and a giant rescued Maine Coon cat named Sassafras, who rules the roost. All three love to be a part of the process.


RUTILATED QUARTZ: Energy, focus, stability

Rutilated quartz is reputed to be an energizing stone that helps get energy moving on all levels. Intuitive sources say that it assists with mental focus. It is also said to attract love and stabilize relationships. It can help slowed chakras return to normal spin and balance.

Emotionally, rutilated quartz is said to be very helpful in uncovering the causes of mental issues and hang-ups. It can diminish fears and assist with decision-making processes. It is said that it can also ease loneliness and relieve guilt, thereby bringing happiness. It is used metaphysically to help one get out of a rut as well as for stabilizing emotions and mental processes, and clarifying thought patterns and emotional reactions. Rutilated quartz is said to increase one's self-reliance and ability to find one's own way.
Rutilated quartz is used metaphysically to deflect negative energies and unwanted energetic, psychic, and magical interferences.

Physically, rutilated quartz is said to be beneficial for food disorders, the immune system, regeneration of tissue, fatigue, depression, respiratory illness, stability of all physical systems and general health, and absorption of nutrients from food. It is also reputed by intuitive sources to be helpful for getting energy moving in areas where the physical energy is sluggish.

FRESHWATER PEARL: Nurturing; calming

Pearl changes bad fortune into good and discord into harmony. It also brings support from influential people. Pearls, due to the nature of their creation, are strongly connected with the feminine, and as such, are very nurturing. They help to ease stress and prevent stress-related illnesses. In India, women wore pearls as magical insurance for a happy marriage. They are symbolic of wealth and beauty, thought to enhance integrity and are used in the treatment of digestive disorders, soft organs, and for increasing fertility, vitality, and understanding.

CITRINE: Manifestation; personal will; mental clarity; creativity

Citrine is a highly energizing and beneficial stone, one of only two minerals on Earth known to hold no negative energy. It is directly related to the sun, and can guide us in utilizing our creative energy, steering events in a positive direction, developing inner calm and security, and dispelling negative feelings. Its energy increases motivation and promotes physical activity, which in turn improves digestion and helps the cleansing organs. Citrine may also work as a detoxifier for the blood. Citrine is sometimes referred to as the merchant's stone, it has been used to help acquire and maintain a state of wealth. It helps clear the intellect and emotions, and is used to dispel anger, open the mind and stimulate mental resolutions. It is said to aid in digestion and promotion of blood circulation.

PYRITE: Masculine energy; manifestation; action

Pyrite (also known as “Fool’s Gold”) is a healing stone, beneficial to the respiratory and circulatory systems. Because of its iron content, it is very connected to the transfer of oxygen from the lungs to the bloodstream. The physical structure of Pyrite (which combines natural randomness with geometric precision) makes it a stone that helps one to balance creative and intuitive impulses with scientific and practical ones. Pyrite also improves communication skills by easing anxiety and frustration.
