The 12 Foundation Stones in New Jerusalem – Crystals and the Bible
February 4, 2015 Elasa Crystal Healing Facts, Crystals and the Bible, Crystals for Health 6
Have you ever wondered about the significance of the 12 foundation stones in New Jerusalem? In Revelation chapter 21, John describes seeing the new Jerusalem (heaven), and he goes into detail about the 12 foundation stones, the streets of pure gold and the pearl gates. If you have read my other articles, you know that each crystal and stone has its own unique vibration and healing properties. In this first installment of my “Crystals and The Bible” series, we are going to be taking a closer look into the meanings and properties of these 12 stones mentioned in the Bible.
Revelation 21: 18-21
In Revelation chapter 21, God shows John the new Jerusalem. After describing the measurements of the holy city, John tells us about the precious stones garnishing the foundation of the wall.
18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the citywas pure gold, as it were transparent glass. (KJV)
When John speaks of Jasper, he is speaking of the same stone mentioned in Revelation 21:11, which he describes as clear as crystal. Many say that the Jasper he speaks of is actually Diamond. Imagine massive walls made entirely of diamond!
Have you ever seen gold so pure, it was like clear glass? No, of course you haven’t! This purest gold we will walk on in heaven is nothing like the gold we have here on earth. It is so pure that it is clear.
