SAPPHIRE

RED SAPPHIRE = RUBY!

The Second Foundation-Scene VII

 

 

As noted in the first blog of the stones, the meaning the stones used to create The New City holds within them a mystery of Revelation which was discovered while crushing the stones.  This mystery will change history and religion as we current understand them related to Revelation, it is history in the making!  Please note that in ancient times stones were classified differently than today and were not a separated family with different names as we see today.

 As noted in the first blog about the stones, research is ongoing regarding the stones, their dates of origin, name origins, when and/or if they became classified as separates from their original families due to color or other contributing factors.  Sapphire is a stone which has numerous separations as you will see in the Jacinth blog.  Once all blogs have been written it will become apparent that the current classifications are what ultimately changed the meaning.

 Sapphire is corundum and is currently (in modern times) the non-red variety of corundum, the second hardest natural mineral known to mankindI have not been able to distinguish when in time the color separation of corundum occurred other than the given name was used in the 19th century, and when the red sapphire became classified differently from the corundum family.  The red variety of corundum is Rubyall other colors became called sapphire, even pink.

 Corundum in all colors is known as sapphire except the medium to dark red tones which in modern times characterize ruby.  Sapphire is commonly known as blue yet colors which make up this family of mineral, when applied correctly include yellow, brown, green, black, purple, orange, pink, colorless, and ranges within those colors.  Although this blog is about Sapphire or Ruby, it is worth mentioning the stone Jacinth was Hycinth in ancient times, which is Sapphire.

 A one carat ruby can range in price, according to color, size, clarity and cut to over $10,000.00.  The quality makes the difference and the bigger the stone, the more it is worth.  For example, in 2008 in Geneva through Christie’s (auction sale) a ring “The Graff Ruby sold for $3,647,480.00 which per carat was $425,000.000.  Rubies are often times worth per carat, more than diamonds…Amazing!  

 The Revelation Painting requires  gemstones crushed into shards including rough and faceted where appraisals were not obtained beforehand.  I do not know if the rough gems I crushed wher in fact worth $425,000.00 per carat or not.  It sounds ludicrous but the message of the painting in my eyes is worth far more than a monetary value.  A simple personal philosophy is that I cannot take this painting when I leave the earth, but I can take the impact it made upon the world!

 Also, some faceted stones from Thailand and other Asian countries were lead glass filled which is considered “enhanced or treated”.  Although still ruby, flawed, it is a process where the natural feathering or flaws within the stone is lead glass filled which eliminates the flaw and adds weight to the stone.  Sellers are supposed to disclose this process but do not readily do so.  The stone after time returns to its flawed state.  In the painting, although thousands of dollars worth of rubies were used, some were “enhanced”.

 The spiritual meaning of ruby includes wisdom related to spiritual matters, confidence, helps to focus concentration, offer contentment and peace, and is commonly known as the stone of life and energy.  (As in the Jasper blog, please remember-LIFE and ENERGY as it relates to the uncovered mystery of the stones in the foundation of The New City).  The ruby is considered the most powerful gem in the universe!  The gift of ruby symbolizes friendship and love.

 Rubies are found in many parts of the world and have been mined for centuries.  Burma is the main source for the finest rubies but in recent years very few quality rubies have been found.  The finest ruby color is known or described as “pigeon’s blood”.  Other areas where rubies are mined include:  Kenya, Greenland, Tanzania, Vietnam, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, United States, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan as well as other locations.

 The name ruby was derived from the Latin word ruber which means simply “red”.

EMERALD-The Fourth Stone

EMERALD-The Fourth Stone

Red Emerald-Bixbite

Beryl has been considered a valuable gemstone since prehistoric times. There are many colors of beryl known under many names. Green beryl is called emerald. In the 1800s green beryl was removed from the beryl family and called emerald. Blue beryl is aquamarine, colorless is goshenite, pink is morganite and yellow is heliodor ranging from a bright yellow to a honey-golden yellow.

Red beryl is extremely rare and mimics shades of red from bubble gum to to scarlet, or the color of blood. Mainly found within the Wah Wah Mountains of Utah, only an estimated 60 pounds were ever mined in the history of the world! Some smaller amounts have been found in other countries recently. Oddly enough it seems people are drawn to this stone yet do not understand why. The reason will be revealed later via an exerpt from The Stones Journal.

Blood?

The most common thread between this stone, its rarity, and the similar color of blood is in fact that the bible pounds a message to its readers that we should never forget that Jesus shed his blood for our sins. What better way to elevate the significance of that sacrifice than to mark it with the rarest gemstone in the world? These facts seem confusing but within The Revelation Painting there is a mystery of Revelation which has been overlooked since the bible was written and it will be revealed in The Stones Journal. Once revealed, the mystery is easily seen in the painting. The price for red beryl or Bixbite is astronomical! For one faceted carat, you can expect to pay $20,000.00 or more. Although I have obtained 6 carats of rough stone and the collection required for this section of the painting (an estimated 272 carats) will obviously have to be forfieted in lieu of a replacement stone of similar color or some other meaningful way to express the significance of this most important section.

I once spoke to a man who had worked in the mines in Utah and asked for the owner’s contact information. He was very put off when he found that I needed to crush it for the painting. He went on to say that the stone was highly coveted and that the owner would never sacrifice it for the painting. I will never know if I do not ask, so time will tell if the mine owner will sacrifice a handful of the stone.
