This is another stunning specimen from Mary's hoard. We are often asked how we bare to part with our offerings, and it is not always easy, but we are blessed with so much beauty, we just have learned to let the go when it is time.
This formation is just stunning, the colors are just mouth watering! The phantoms are incredible! Even the formations on the underside are beautiful to explore. There is some minor bruising, but it doesn't diminish its beauty at all. And I think its even more vibrant in person!
We are absolutely enthralled with the red phantom and epidote quartz crystals and clusters from Xichang mine in the Sichuan Province of China. Visually and energetically they are very complex. Vivid red phantoms grace the interior of the crystals which range from ice clear to frosty white. Vivid green epidote emerges from the crystals, a very striking counterpoint to the red phantoms. The most extraordinary pieces also have amethyst present, which is very rare, very beautiful, and has amazing energy. These crystals are very strong in the root chakra promoting balance and harmony from your very core. It helps one to promote flexibility and stability. They help one to care for themselves, to feel secure, balanced and in the moment. They help you to work past persistent health issues and working all the way down to the cellular level. To this end they can assist to counter the abnormal growth patterns that cause tumors, fibroids, and other abnormal growth masses. They also work to break through negative behaviors, in particular breaking the habit of finding constant comfort in food. The main work is from the strength of the energy of the red phantoms; however the epidote supports and boosts this energy, and supports healing on all levels.
Crystals with amethyst as well have some of the most complex energy of them all. They assist one to really absorb all of the changes on a deeper mental level. They work with you to progress your healing to a more active state, increasing your awareness of the impact of daily activities on your body. They help you consciously make better decisions for the health of your entire system, and more importantly, stick to them.
Rainbows occur when light is refracted causing a prismatic effect, usually along a plane or inclusions within a crystal. The refraction is often temperature sensitive causing the rainbow to appear and disappear. It is believed that these crystals exhibit the closest manifestation of pure white light that can be witnessed on the physical plane. Rainbow crystals are used during meditation to escort us into the realm of the pure white light and can bring depth and clarity to dreams, help manifest wishes, and overcome negativity to be able to love life in the present moment.
Rainbows bring happiness. They help deal with negativity and help to maintain the constant awareness of love. Because of the rainbows, they produce the full spectrum of colors, the white light of healing and perfections being dispersed into the individual rays of the rainbow. Rainbow quartz can be used on all chakras.
Red phantom quartz crystals are rare; the bright red color is caused by hematite. Red phantoms are used to stimulate the first three chakras, to combine the energies in order to produce highly recognizable vitality directed toward creativity, intellectual advancement, and intuitive endeavors.
