Merkaba Star ☆
Stunning Merkaba Stars are hand-carved from Selenite crystal and polished to a smooth finish.
Selenite is a variety of gypsum characterized by transparent blades or sheets. Selenite, satin spar, desert rose, and gypsum flower are four crystal structure varieties of the mineral gypsum and typically grouped together are referred to as selenite. All selenite is very soft and can be easily scratched with a fingernail.
Selenite & Colors;
The crystal occurs in a range of colors caused by the presence of other mineral inclusions- colorless, white or pearly, gray brown, beige, orange, pink, yellow, light red and even green. Also, because gypsum has natural thermal insulating properties, selenite feels warm to the touch.
Ancient civilizations believed these white transparent crystals waxed and waned with the moon. Selenite is known to exhibit chatoyancy, or the cat's eye effect.
The Merkaba, or Merkabah, Star means "chariot" in Hebrew but when broken down, Mer-Ka-Ba literally means light (Mer) spirit (Ka) body (Ba), denoting the harmonious activation of all. The Merkana symbol is a 3-dimenstional 8 pointed star made of two triangular pyramids, one pointing up and the other pointing down. According to Sacred Geometry and metaphysical beliefs, the merkaba is said to provide protection and transport your consciousness to higher dimensions. The star is made of two intersecting tetrahedrons that spin in opposite directions, creating a 3-dimensional energy field. Many utilize the Merkaba symbol to help visualize, focus and set intentions during mediation.
