These pieces hail from Brazil and have one of the most amazing polishes that I've ever seen. The make one feels as if they are peering into an underwater abyss, discovering some alien planet, or trotting off into some mind-altering reality. This piece has scatterings of hematite and iron inclusions. They are collectors pieces of museum quality.
Clear Quartz is known as the "master healer" and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz draws off negative energy of all kinds, neutralizing background radiation, including electromagnetic smog or petrochemical emanations. It balances and revitalizes the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory. Stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Clear Quartz harmonizes all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.
Rutilated Quartz affects both the etheric and astral bodies. It assists in getting to the root of the issue and provides access to the reason for discomfort so that one can remedy the situation. It stimulates an awareness of the connections between this life and the situations viewed during Astral travel. It also provides information regarding healing modalities used in ancient civilizations. (Melody - Love is in the Earth Mineral Encyclopedia-pg 669)
Phantoms appear like the “ghost” of a crystal within another crystal. A Phantom Quartz Crystal shows the clear delineation of another completed crystal inside the major crystal. Many times you will notice several complete crystals inside one another.
In geological terms, the first quartz crystal stopped growing due to lack of mother, or SiO2 feed, solution. During this rest time, cave dust settled upon the original crystalline structure (i.e. quartz crystal). When the mother solution was reintroduced into the cave, rather than a new and separate crystal forming , the mother solution reformed over the original crystal, trapping and enclosing the cave dust or dirt and giving the crystal a ghostly look, thus the name phantom.
Phantom Quartz Crystal is considered a Master Crystal because of it’s unique ability to represent the separate and unique lifetimes of the one quartz crystal, it’s regressive properties and the ability of life after death.
