I truly believe that when it comes to gemstones and natural elements we crave what we need. I don’t think that’s the case with food, otherwise I think I’d need a darn lot of chocolate…but I digress.
I am in love with Roman glass. I mean absolutely in love with it. These beads have a shimmer to them. A patina of age and wear. They are smooth and pitted like sea glass that has been on a trip around the world and back. But Roman glass hasn’t really gone anywhere. It’s different from it’s sea glass sister. It has waited patiently to be found under layers of sand and speaks to a world that once was, but is no more.
The roman glass almost has a voice. If you listen closely I think you can hear the voices of ancient people. There is a code, a memory, some essence that is passed along with the Roman glass. And while I realize it is just as easy that negative energy could be attached to the Roman Glass, as easily as positive, thoughts, feelings and memories. I have a theory. I think that somehow negative energy is cleared away from this special glass perhaps from being buried for hundreds of years.
I have never held a piece of Roman Glass that makes me sad, uncomfortable, or negative. They all have a vibrancy that speaks to some kind of energetic cleansing. Perhaps the memories are left behind but anything sad or negative has been stripped away. I do feel that it whispers of a past that we can only guess at and see out of the corner of our eye.
There’s a mysticism and a traveling quality to it. Perhaps it’s astral projection or traveling back in time. It brings imagination with insight. That’s why I love the two necklaces that are made with Roman Glass and I hope they find happy homes. Check out Ancient Mystic Traveler and Mystical Glass.
