I love the rich mauve phantoms that cap this formation. The inclusions aren't dense as the point retains nice clarity at the base and translucence at the termination. Yet color permeates the entire point. The energy wraps around you like an embrace, with a very motherly energy. It makes you feel protected and secure, enabling you to feel safe to purge locked up emotions.
Lithium in quartz forms beautiful pink to deep mauve phantoms. They are gentle heart healers with a broad influence to your system. They have tons of patience, calming you during the worst of your emotional storms. Releasing these pent of emotions is a very healing process. They are gentle enough to work with anyone, including babies and children. Lithium is a gentle healer that opens the heart chakra and moves energy through the body. It stimulates the third eye chakra and sends energy flowing into all the mind centers. It can be used safely to activate all of the chakras. These stones also enhance meditation and improve the quality of the inner visions received. The vibration of these stones is one of profound healing, emotional peace, release from tension and awakening of the Higher Self. Healers love working with these crystals and they are highly recommended for stone lay-outs; opening and activating or repairing any of the chakras, mending ‘holes’ in the aura and clearing the etheric field of any unwanted influence.
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.
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.
