This point is just stunning, especially when caught in the light just so. It looks like a stormy sky, or waves in the ocean. The actinolite inclusions shimmer with shades of blue and silver. While the point is polished, there are contrasting unpolished areas too.
The color blue is an uncommon occurance in the actinolite family which usually appears as green, white or grey. These inclusions in quartz produce a dreamy cloud-like appearance of blue which ranges from light to dense clouds of blue, sometimes occuring in phantoms. Dense patches will catch the light with a chatoyant shimmer, and when these clouds combine with the rich earth tones of red and orange iron oxide the effect is quite breathtaking. The find of these crystals was quite small, discovered in a farmer's field. These extra special crystals are ethically hand harvested from the fields. They have a beautiful soft blue energy that wraps you in a sense of serenity and calm. It quickly washes away the anxieties of the mind, allowing calm and quiet to wash over you. It then proceeds to work on the physical body, restoring the body to a place of balance. These crystals help to counter the overly stress filled days in our lives. The presence of earthy inclusions in some of the points adds a rich energy that helps to strengthen the physical body. These beautiful crystals along with blue tourmaline included crystals are also known Indigo Quartz due to their rich blue colors.
Actinolite is a mineral inclusion containing calcium, magnesium and iron and is a part of the silicate family. It is better known as the mineral variety, jade and jadeite. It is a phenomenal shielding device and expands the energy bodies. The expansion of energy bodies provides for a connection to "All That Is" and facilitates the "brotherhood" of all.
Clear quartz is made up of silicon dioxide, the most abundant mineral on the planet. No wonder it is the most common tool in the mineral kingdom, as well as the most versatile. I like to call it the general practitioner of the crystal world as it works with all chakras. Clear quartz is also known as white quartz or milky quartz when it has an abundance of interior veils and planes. Often crystals will have a mixture of different clarities throughout the interior. Quartz crystals are graded on their clarity, luster, and overall condition of the stone, with the higher degrees of clarity being more valuable. It is interesting to note that although chemically the same, quartz from different regions vibrates with subtle differences.
Quartz attracts and enables you to use more life force energy. Have it around you, on you, or in elixir form, in you! Quartz seeks to bring balance on all our bodies’ levels. Quartz has the ability to receive, store and send energy, this makes it a powerful manifestation tool.
Hold/gaze into the crystal, put your thought/need (what you wish to manifest) into the crystal, the crystal receives the thought (and the feeling behind the thought) then stores and transmits those thoughts and feelings into the ethers. Thus, even while you’re not thinking about that particular manifestation, the crystal is still putting it out. Thus drawing your manifestation towards you at a much greater rate than before. Power tools, you have to love ‘em!
Many refer to this process as programming; many books state that a crystal can hold only one program. They have just found a way to store terabytes of data into a single bubble that makes up the mist you see in the Quartz. My feeling is that Quartz crystals can in fact hold and run more programs than we could give in a life time! Quartz is one of the most flexible crystal tools around. It is very responsive to our intent, what you intend is what you get, to this point it is also one of the most powerful tools and should be treated as such.
