This is a beautiful and water clear crystal from Zambia. Like all the Zambian crystals, this one has a tendency towards self healing. The point looks like it has been dinged in the past, but the crystal is in the process of repairing that damage and re-attaching the tip.
A recent discovery in Mpika, Zambia has yielded some amazing quartz crystals. They are very bright and transparent, like some of the Brazilian quartzes. They show a good deal of Master formations and an intriguing tendency towards self-healing, with traces of red-orange iron in the nooks and crannies. They have a brightness that is a nice contrast to their deeply ancient wisdom and energy. Some of these crystals have manifested calcite cubes floating in their depths. Although each Zambian crystal has a unique spirit, they do share some qualities. They all have a nurturing energy, almost motherly. They help you to reconnect to the lessons learned in childhood, while minimizing the impact of childhood trauma.
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.
Crystals are our passion. As such, we treat each crystal as an individual spirit, which is why we insist on individual listings for all of our crystal offerings. We care deeply for the crystals, ensuring that we nurture them while they are entrusted to our guardianship.
