Jewels of the Spirit: Golden Topaz

How fragile Frodo looks, Gimli thinks. Beneath his translucent skin, his slender frame seems as delicate as the hollow bones of a bird. His gaze is far away, haunted. Waking or sleeping, his whole body seems inclined towards the East, as if drawn taut by an invisible power, some fierce, unearthly magnetism.

Yet Gimli doubts the power of the Ring, nor its Maker, to control him, not while the love of his companions sustains and upholds him. For all his seeming delicacy the Ringbearer's spirit is strong, suffused with the golden radiance of topaz, the gem of dedication, of purposefulness.

Author’s Note

The third chakra, represented by the golden topaz, is the center of our bodies, and invigorates us with motivation, vitality, and purpose.
