We are committed to offer gems which display optical splendor and inner radiance.
Symbolizing Peace and Tranquility, Andara Gems have arrived for those who are purposefully seeking an Ultimate State of Consciousness.
There is a natural harmony evident in every gem, which reveals this poignant message:
We believe that this extraordinary material has presented itself in order to give back to the people from which it was birthed.
After searching for the best charitable organization to help the people of Indonesia, we have chosen The Karuna Bali Foundation. Its emphasis on education, integrity and its integration with government and institutions all combine to make this a commendable choice.
In honor of our connection with Indonesia, Andara Gems will donate a net portion of all proceeds from our sales to The Karuna Bali Foundation.
Andara was discovered by a field geologist during a visit to Indonesia. It was brought to my attention in 2003. Rick and I then funded a project to bring Andara to our home Island of Kauai. In our quest to fashion Andara into a quality gemstone, I was introduced to Master Cutter Greg Papin of Golden Mean Studios.
We found Andara to be a mesmerizing material and instinctively felt that it needed to be cut with sacred geometric designs. The result of Mr. Papin's precise faceting and his established commitment to quality is that each gemstone displays exceptional symmetry. The brilliance and radiance of Andara is not only visually stunning, but many practitioners in the healing arts are seeing wonderful results for our patients and clients. It also draws compassionate people who give from their hearts.
One particular gemstone is named 'The Transcending Light of Faith' which represents the Perfect Union of Loving Hearts and Oneness with The Universe.
Our desire to present this exquisitely designed Gemstone to The Karuna Bali Foundation was fulfilled on February 2, 2008. Later this year The Transcending Light of Faith Gem will be offered for auction in which all of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help provide education and school supplies for the underprivileged children of Bali.
The Karuna Bali Foundation is a non profit, non sectarian, non religious Indonesian organization created to assist in providing education and individual growth opportunities to the people of Bali and elsewhere. It is sponsored through the Servantship program of Heartfelt Bali, an Indonesian corporation established by Jayem in Indonesia.
Through itís work with the CAMPUHAN COLLEGE, and outreach programs especially geared towards children, The Karuna Bali Foundation seeks to uplift the individual and the Balinese society as a whole through advancement and opportunity of itís people. Through The Karuna Bali Foundation, a year of high school education can be funded with only $300 Ė College with only $1000 per year.
