We have a lot of history with this sphere. It first came to us many years ago, and delighted us with its presence and energy. When it was time to go, we were relieved that it was going to a good home. The sphere has come full circle (no pun intended!) and came back to us as part of the estate of that dear departed customer. Our long time customers know that we aren't exactly a "rock shop" but more like an adoption agency. We've been asked to help find these amazing spirits their new homes. Below you'll find the original write up for this amazing sphere, with recent pictures.
Let me first say that the pictures do not do this gorgeous sphere justice. It is so much clearer than the pictures indicate, but as with any sphere it takes any internal feature and magnifies it. When the light hits the sphere the whole interior just lights up. There are many rainbows that glow from the interior, the whole sphere just plays with light and color. Its actually been in our living room soaking up the energy, and allowing us to enjoy its presence. But alas, we're getting the hints that it is time for it to move on. This is an amazing price for a sphere of this size and quality, we received a good discount so this sphere is half the price it would have normally retailed for! There are a few minor surface flaws in the polish, but they are more easily notice by touch than sight. The energy with bright and vibrant, washing the entire room in joyous energy. It loves the sunlight which boosts its already joyful energy. It helps to clear areas of any negative energy that may cling to them, bringing into the light the good memories while banishing the bad. The pictures make this sphere look a touch smoky, and when compared to a clear quartz sphere side by side, it appears slightly darker. So while it is mostly clear, there does seem to be a hint of smoky quartz. I have always though of the energy of this sphere being well grounded as well as very joyous. It brings love and harmony to all that is around it. This stunning sphere is from Brazil.
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.
Carved mineral balls have been contoured in the spherical configuration, becoming the most unified of all sacred geometrical shapes. They radiate energy in all directions, making balls ideal for grid anchors, depending on purpose. Spheres facilitate smoother communication in group gatherings by rounding off rough edges. They are often used for scrying as "windows" to faraway places: future, past and present. They have been used in the activity of gazing, as if from afar, in order to assist one in the evaluation of a present situation or circumstance. Crystal balls have been used to purify and to fill the gaps in the entire auric field when worn or held. Small spheres are also used as charms and worn or carried to prevent and/or to ameliorate degenerative diseases.
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.
