We recently received two gorgeous amethyst points with distinctive smoky phantoms. This is the larger of the points. Polished from Brazilian amethyst, this point has sweet and ethereal lavender color. The color zoning in this point is just lovely!
Phantom quartz records the stages of growth of a crystal. Phantoms mark a time of no growth, where another mineral has settled on the surface before the crystal began to grow again. Sometimes they mark a different growing condition, creating bands of color, like smoky or amethyst phantoms. Because phantom quartz shows a record in time, they are perfect for those who wish to work with past life recall. They also help you to identify patterns, and the evolution of healing. This is especially helpful for those working through trauma or abuse. Often the same issues crop up over and over again, leading you to believe you are not making any progress. Phantom quartz helps you to look back and see the progress you have made. You may be working on the same issues but now from a higher perspective. Different inclusions will focus the energy in specific ways, for example smoky phantoms are particularly good in breaking old patterns and blockages.
Phantom quartz is especially good for children, assisting them with learning to meditate. Use phantom quartz during stressful periods, or periods of change to facilitate a more peaceful transition. It is also an excellent stone for assisting with healing from abuse issues. It helps one to see the progress in healing, and identify patterns.
Smoky Quartz is almost a default crystal in any crystal layout. It is grounding, protective and can transform negative energy into positive energy. Phantom crystals in Smoky are very powerful in breaking old patterns and blockages. As an elixir it can have great effect against radiation type illnesses. It purges toxicity from the major bodily organs. It is very good for reigning in wayward emotions and helps one put things into perspective. It helps keep us grounded while under great stress. Smoky also is a great boost to the bodies’ immune system. It is a very joyful crystal. It is helpful to hold if you have other crystals that UN-ground you such as Moldavite.
Sometimes Smoky combines with Amethyst, which gives you the benefits of both, as well as creating their own unique energy combined. Phantom crystals in Smoky are very powerful in breaking old patterns and blockages.
