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”.

It is time to get back into gear.  I spent the last few months in useless “marketing” efforts trying to gain corporate sponsorship for this massive painting.  I have come back to my senses and realized I, and I alone are the master of this painting’s destiny.  Never do I, or have I started at the bottom and worked my way up.  I have this simple philosophy:  Start at the top! It could end up in a tragedy or success because at the top, the only place to go is down.  The key is once you get to the top, you never let go!

I am the creator of a massive work of art called THE
REVELATION PAINTING which measures an incredible 12 feet by 40 feet!  Not since DaVinci’s time has there been a religious painting of this magnitude.
This painting is history in the making!

I am writing you Sir in effort to gain your support.  I am an American born artist but the significance of this painting is paramount.  I would like to release this painting from Italy with the support of the church.  There has been nothing throughout history which can match the true magnificence this painting.

The painting is alive and moves with fire, passion, and energy!  It bleeds on the canvas and returns to its original state.  There are messages within the painting written backwards and the painting changes to other paintings in front of the audience’ eyes, true awe and spectacular!

There are mysteries of Revelation which are uncovered within the painting which will change what we previously knew about the book of Revelation.  It is well worth the churches time to look into this painting and I would be honored as the artist.

I have been working on this painting for the past 11 years, it is what I
would consider a “life’s work.”  I have received materials for this painting from around the world, making it a true global effort.  Please feel free to contact me at any time.

I have created a blog:  www.therevelationpainting.wordpress.com

  where I am creating public interest very rapidly!  This is the last year of the painting’s creation which has been kept a secret until now.  It is exciting and I would very much appreciate your attention above all which become involved.

Respectfully yours

Below, you can see a summary (Please note I am not a professional marketer, just an artist working independently on all aspects of this painting):

—ABOUT THE PAINTING—
The Revelation Painting©
“La pittura di rivelazione”

THE REVELATION PAINTING is a massive work of art measuring 12 feet by 40 feet with 7 magnificent scenes.  Thirty canvases 48″ X 48″ were required for the creation of the painting.  The canvases are of gallery wrapped cloth and custom made wooden canvases required to carry the weight and storage of the elements of the painting.  This painting will travel the world in exhibition and is indeed history in the making!  The artist has expressed that in this world of turmoil and unsettling conflict, that something very beautiful can be created through resources not commonly used to create unity and world peace.  Over ten years have been dedicated to exposing the beauty of the world and its resources, its people, spirit, culture and soul.  The artist states:  “It is a “presence” of beauty for the world, visual peace in times of turmoil.”

The painting incorporates fiber optics, 3D “flip” graphic resources, and gemstones from around the world, among other things commonly not seen in fine arts, yet the quality is comparable to the work of the “old masters” in its creation.  Each gemstone holds a sacred place in the painting which is identified in one of seven journals being created simultaneously titled: The Stones.  The journal includes information about the stones and their origin related to the painting.  One of the mysteries of Revelation has been uncovered in this section of the painting!  There is an area of precious and semiprecious crushed gemstones creating the New City which spans a total of 220 inches respectively where over $40,000.00 to this date, has been
invested-Ruby, Sapphire, Chalcedony, Sardonyx, Carnelian, Beryl, Helidor, Topaz, Bixbite, Zircon, Amethyst, and Chrysoprasus…it is stunning and like nothing you have never seen!  Each 1″ section of gemstone coverage required 6 carats of crushed gemstones.  The painting also contains titles and subtitles in languages from all over the globe!
The other six journals are:
+ the artist ideas, thoughts, and feelings while creating this life’s work
(2 books Dreams, Visions)
+ Sketches of the work (1 book), Truth-The Hemorrhage of Pigs! (1 book)
+ Measures-with such a massive size it was imperative that the measurements be precise. (1 book)
+ Journal of Acknowledgement, the most important journal in the series acknowledges the participation no matter how great or small toward the completion of this masterpiece.  It discloses not only their personal contribution but information provided by the contributor and advertising if desired of their businesses, personal information, dreams and aspirations.
Essentially whatever the contributor wants to say to the world! (1 book)
The painting will be shown via webcam in mid 2010 with the artist working on it…THE FINALE.  There will be scans of the work and updates regarding all aspects of this wonderful creation starting in January 2010.  You will view the last year of the making of this historical painting.  It is a painting to the people for the people.  You and the world are a part of it!

Mark your calendar for June 2010 when www.therevelationpainting.com goes live with webcam shots of the work being created.
 

 

See, he is reading my email!  Look at his face, he is astounded!  Now it’s just a waiting game…

It is unclear to me that if I had been marketing this painting for the past 11 years, if I would have been any further than I am.  It does not seem that I will gain corporate sponsorship until it is complete, then as they say:  “Everyone will be your friend”…you know.  I have been watching the U.S. economy and feel as though The Revelation Painting will not get the recognition it deserves here and have decided to release it from Italy, specifically Rome and the “grand-daddy” of religious art-The Vatican!  Regardless, tonight I did something drastic.  Tonight I wrote the Pope~!

EMERALD

The Fourth Stone

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.  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.

Dr. Martin Luther King and The Black Horse

We spoke earlier about The Four Horsemen representing races of people and I mentioned that if, by chance these horses represented spaces of time as well that we would be currently living in The Black Horses time.  I had chosen Dr. Martin Luther King as the rider of The Black Horse simply because the literal sign of the times is focused on equality of some proportion-civil rights, worker’s rights, veterans rights, equal rights, smokers rights, gay rights, womans rights, unborn rights, etc…

Rev 6:5  And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

The Black Horse carries “the balances”, or scales and scales measure equality.  Used as an icon in the courts, it would seem that the balances also measure justice, as in “the scales of justice” where evidence is weighed.  Appropriately we have also learned that on “Judgement Day” when the book of life is opened, we will be accountable for the deeds of our life whether good or bad.  Could it be that good and bad will be measured by balances?

Back to equality.  Dr. Martin Luther King is an icon of equality.  He not only fits the race required for The Black Horses’ rider, he also fits the cause: Equality.  It is only appropriate that he is The Black Horses’ rider.  The role is too significant that he played in changing the world to ignore and should be illuminated, thus never forgotten.  He was the father which birthed modern day of battles dealing with equality in any manner.  Numerous hours were spent sketching Martin Luther King.

Many sketches will be in the Journal of Sketches.  Roughly the first sketch and final painting are revealed here in this blog.  Martin Luther King is nearly completed here:
