This is a fascinating little cluster from China. There are two kinds of hematite inclusions, this is one to spend some time with. Around the base, clusters of hematite rosettes fill the areas between the two main quartz crystals. Specular hematite sprinkles the sides of these two crystals, while their terminations show a great deal of self healing where it contacted other crystals.

A crystal is considered self healed when a partial piece of crystal or a complete crystal has sustained damage, yet continues to grow afterwards. Self-healing comes in many guises, usually where a crystal has been severed from its original growing condition, but can also occur where crystals have been bumped and bruised too. A self-healed crystal can be identified by the intricate etchings and/or multiple faces which emerge from the damaged areas. These crystals aid in any type of self-healing—physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Self-Healed crystals are highly compassionate with exceptional support for those working to overcome strong emotional issues or traumas. In addition they provide support when working to let go of negative addictions, be it a behavior, a person, or belief, food or chemical.
