Lightning Strike Quartz

Melody first wrote about the lightning strike quartz and identified why these wonderful Spirits were so marked although she wasn't the first to experience the phenomenon.  From a scientific perspective, I understand what happened – quartz is piezoelectric meaning that it actually generates electricity when under pressure.  That's why they use quartz in watches and other electronic items.  When the pressure builds, the electricity has to discharge and it cause this characteristic zig-zag in the quartz.  I also understand that lightning discharges near the crystal beds will do this as well – same principle.  These are rare Spirits and truly are one of profound change.  


My first lightning strike quartz actually HAPPENED to me.  I had a particularly intense meditation and at the end, I went to set the crystal on the table as I got up.  The room was dark and as I reached for the table, there was a flash of light and an audible pop and I felt a piece of the crystal hit my palm!  This was many years ago and I'd never heard of lightning strike quartz, so I thought the crystal was ruined!  There was a gash running nearly her whole length, all cross-hatched.  She was extraordinarily hot too!  I emailed a friend and she explained what had happened ... and my quartz was far from ruined.  She is one of the most intense crystals that it has been my privilege to know – and she is a perennial meditation favorite!


Some lightning strike quartz exhibits fresh lightning paths, often singly or in successive ripples.  Others has more ancient markings that have healed through the eons.  The energy of the two is different as well ... the "fresher" ones are more for working with traumic and dramatic change where a result needs to happen in a hurry.  There is a rapid clearing and a more intense energy movement that isn't for some people.   


The healed lightning have softer, more suffuse energy.  These are crystals more for healing where the effect needs to be slow, peeling off the layers like the skin on an onion. These crystals are far better for dealing with change of deep-seeded issues where an "instant" result would have a negative effect on the person.  These are wonderful for reworking old and useless beliefs, childhood trauma and past life carry-overs.


Whichever type you choose, welcome and embrace the change for it will help to bring enlightenment!

#TSW10869 Fiery Red Amphibole with Silver Shield, Lightning Strike Quartz - Know Inner Truth

Red amphibole quartz is new on the market from Serra do Cabral Mountains in Brazil ... and these special red amphiboles are newly arrive and mind-blowing! Unlike the lovely pastel or sunrise/sunset-toned amphiboles, these are definite shades of red, sometimes accented with greens, blues and gold. Amphibole minerals have no crystalline form and meander through the crystal like scarves in the wind.  This crystal is opalescent and with a bit of growth interference by the amphibole to the back (there is also a well-healed ding there). Beams of deep, fiery red amphibole shoot through her diagonally and in her termination, she has a silver shield that has healed into a raised glyph appearance that I couldn't capture well with the camera, but use a loupe to see it well! She has nice Lemurian lines and rather interesting starbrary glyphs. Along one side edge, there is a well-defined lightning strike path that begins inside and continues along the edge for about 2"! These were held aside by the miners just for my supplier to see during a recent trip to Brazil. She is a nice 8 oz and 3.5" by 1.9" by 1.5" with a small nick at the termination, but is otherwise in excellent condition.

My first lightning strike quartz actually happened to me.  I had a particularly intense meditation and at the end, I went to set the crystal on the table as I got up.  The room was dark and as I reached for the table, there was a flash of light and an audible pop and I felt a piece of the crystal hit my palm!  This was some time ago and I'd never heard of lightning strike quartz, so I thought the crystal was ruined!  There was a gash running nearly her whole length, all cross-hatched.  She was extraordinarily hot too!  I emailed a friend and she explained what had happened - and my quartz was far from ruined - she is one of the most intense crystals that it has been my privilege to know - and she is a perennial meditation favorite!  Interestingly, this process is similar to what happens when the crystal is in the ground.  Lightning strikes in the vicinity and the current created leaves these marks on the surfaces.

Red amphibole is a wonderful Spirit to help you come in contact with that inner truth that is in your Core Chakra.  The Core Chakra is frequently ignored, under the assumption that all the other ones need work while this one is doing just fine. The Core is your connection to Self, family and community and as such is the vessel holding your Core beliefs ... the ones that guide your life. But, like the garden, the Core beliefs need weeding in order to remain strong and beautiful so from time to time, you need to align these with your stage of Spiritual advancement. But this special Spirit has riebeckite! While still maintaining the Core energies, she allows you to better speak (and thus bring into the physical) your own Truth.  This Spirit is a loyal assistant in that quest as she helps you understand that throughout your life, there is a part of your Core that is "fixed" while another part changes to accommodate the Spiritual growth you experience. While that fixed portion is important, equally important is the flexibility to allow change and in that flexibility, permit the Spiritual growth to become part of your foundation.  The lightning strike markings further drive this home ... showing you that there is a definite path to follow to ensure the change. All that Spiritual growth is without merit if it does not become an integral part of your physical expression and complete you as a person - this is the one and premier Inner Truth! She is truly a Spirit that should be with you at all times!

Ancient Lightning Strike Slightly-Smoky Twinned Citrine Quartz for Altar

#TSW10928 Ancient Lightning Strike Slightly-Smoky Twinned Citrine Quartz for Altar

This is another of those amazingly powerful and intense lightning strike quartz from Brazil. She is rich citrine with touch of smoke, 2 lb 2.1 oz and 6 by 2.4 by 2.9 and is literally covered with lightning markings ... beyond the typical lightning strike path, there are areas where the lightning has danced across her surfaces. She is twinned and has some starbrary glyphs among the Lemurian lines on three sides. Her internal mists are rising and also may be as a result of the lightning strike traveling internally. She has some dings that have healed and likely resulted from the amazing energy she carried from the lightning strike. Plus, one lightning path is very linear and may have followed a key on that side.  She has a few odd tiny dings unrelated to the lightning strike, but considering her history, she's in remarkable condition and ready for her forever Keeper.

 

My first lightning strike quartz actually happened to me.  I had a particularly intense meditation and at the end, I went to set the crystal on the table as I got up.  The room was dark and as I reached for the table, there was a flash of light and an audible pop and I felt a piece of the crystal hit my palm!  This was some time ago and I'd never heard of lightning strike quartz, so I thought the crystal was ruined!  There was a gash running nearly her whole length, all cross-hatched.  She was extraordinarily hot too!  I emailed a friend and she explained what had happened ... and my quartz was far from ruined ... she is one of the most intense crystals that it has been my privilege to know ... and she is a perennial meditation favorite!  Interestingly, this process is similar to what happens when the crystal is in the ground.  Lightning strikes in the vicinity and the current created leaves these marks on the surfaces.

 

As I said, I'm over the moon with these quartz ... they are so varied and so mysterious.  Interestingly, this Spirit seems best matched for a Keeper looking to express his or her own power in a positive, beneficial manner.  Women, in particular, don't totally express what is on their mind, trying to be cognizant of opinions and feelings of others.  This is an important consideration, but many times we sacrifice our own feelings and opinions and totally allow only those of others.  This leaves a sense of frustration and a lack of self-worth.  But the struggle isn't restricted only to women.  Within the glow of protection from her citrine soul, she offers a surety and security about Self that allows full expression without hurting another.  Trust that you will find the words and the means and then permit it to happen.  The sense of freedom will be inspiring and freeing!

Gently Opalescent Lightning Strike Pleiadian Quartz

#TSW13725 Gently Opalescent Lightning Strike Pleiadian Quartz

This is a gently opalescent 1.2 oz 2.6" by 0.9" by 0.55" crystal from the Serra Do Cabral Mountains in Brazil. She is somewhat misted with slightly matte sides that highlight the series of unusual and holographic Pleiadian glyphs among her Lemurian lines. There are two ancient, shallow keys on one side and part of another and to the right of the smaller one, there is a somewhat broad lightning strike path that forked, blowing out a small piece of crystal on each exit of the strike. It was hard to show in the pictures, but you will see it easily in person. You will simply not believe how special she is! She is ready to work with a special Keeper, eager to use her electric energy in meditations and healing. She has some tiny dings of no significance. 

My first lightning strike quartz actually happened to me. I had a particularly intense meditation and at the end, I went to set the crystal on the table as I got up. The room was dark and as I reached for the table, there was a flash of light and an audible pop and I felt a piece of the crystal hit my palm! This was some time ago and I'd never heard of lightning strike quartz, so I thought the crystal was ruined! There was a gash running nearly her whole length, all cross-hatched. She was extraordinarily hot too! I emailed a friend and she explained what had happened - and my quartz was far from ruined - she is one of the most intense crystals that it has been my privilege to know - and she is a perennial meditation favorite! 

I love the feel of this crystal - gentle, but compelling; sweet but insistent; bright, but suffuse; calming, but electric. Now, I know that all sounds like opposites, but what she is about is balance. It seems we spend out lives in one arena or the other, but it's important that blend the two in all that we do. You'll find that once you both see and experience the balance, it will be hard to go back the other way. Melody first wrote about the lightning strike quartz and identified why these wonderful Spirits were so marked. From a scientific perspective, I understand what happened - quartz is piezoelectric meaning that it actually generates electricity when under pressure. That's why they use quartz in watches and other electronic items. When the pressure builds, the electricity has to discharge and it cause this characteristic zig-zag in the quartz. I also understand that lightning discharges near the crystal beds will do this as well - same principle. These are rare Spirits and truly are one of profound change. Profound! This is a Spirit for a Light Worker moving into a critical path of growth. She is truly astounding and meant for one Light Worker and one only who will recognize her immediately! This is a very auspicious formation for such a powerful crystal! It allows us to focus and concentrate on what must be done. This Spirit is serious about having work to do and is perfect for the beginner to the adept Light Worker because of the many levels of energy and the ease with which she focuses and amplifies it. Her new Keeper will be amazed and astonished by power of this Spirit! Strongly recommended: work with hematite, black tourmaline or obsidian in the pocket for grounding.

Slightly Opalescent Sacred Ancient Lightning Strike Quartz with Healed and Fresh Strike
Click image for detail

#TSW13850 Slightly Opalescent Sacred Ancient Lightning Strike Quartz with Healed and Fresh Strike

This is a slightly opalescent 1 oz, 1.1" by 1" by 0.6" quartz from Brazil. She has an ancient look and feel with gentle Lemurian lines on her sides. You can see that she has been shaped through the eons by lightning throughout her years within Mother Earth. One of her larger sides shows an ancient and well-healed lightning strike while the adjoining side shows a lengthwise and more recent strike that has all but obliterated that side and the adjoining terminal face. She has nice glyphs and a wonderful Isis face and is a perfect pocket size.

This is a Spirit for a Light Worker moving into a critical path of growth. I cannot begin to tell you how sacred she is - you will feel it as soon as you touch her ... as I said, she is one of a kind and you'll not see her likes again. Simply astounding!

#TSW14011 Rugged, Fiery Red Amphibole with Dominant Lightning Strike Quartz – Know Inner Truth

Red amphibole quartz is new on the market from Serra do Cabral Mountains in Brazil … and these special red amphiboles are newly arrive and mind-blowing! Unlike the lovely pastel or sunrise/sunset-toned amphiboles, these are definite shades of red, sometimes accented with greens, blues and gold. Amphibole minerals have no crystalline form and meander through the crystal like scarves in the wind. And you can easily see this quality in her, particularly through her upper third with a deep, fiery-red and buff streaks. She has nice Lemurian lines and rather interesting glyphs … but the mind-blowing part is the well-defined and wide lightning strike path that begins at her base and travels about 80% of her length as it meanders across one side. There is a bit of riebeckite also within her, giving her a bit of a ghostly look and her termination is so growth interfered by the amphibole that it has formed a rather odd multi with embedded golden healer. These were held aside by the miners just for my supplier to see during a recent trip to Brazil. She is a splendid Spirit at 8.9 oz and 5.2” by 1.6” by 1.4” and has a narrow ding to one side edge but is otherwise in excellent condition.
