Lightning Strike Quartz

Search Catalog > Shop Crystals by Category > Quartz > 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!


Smoke and “Fire” Lightning Strike Quartz Wand with Starbrary Glyphs#TSW9263. Smoke and “Fire” Lightning Strike Quartz Wand with Starbrary Glyphs

This rather odd, altar-sized 3 lb 4.8 oz, 8.6” by 2.8” by 2.7” crystal is from Brazil and begins as an opalescent, misted section at her slanted and healed base.  Her sides host a few odd, starbrary glyphs and interestingly, she doesn’t have the lightning strike that is typical with the zigzag patterns in the quartz, but rather darkened areas of scorch marks … on three sides. It isn’t a surface phenomena as you can see that the darkest of these actually penetrates the quartz! It strikes me like smoke and fire! There are a number of students at her sides and a large one that stretches nearly her length.  There are subtle glyphs on her faces and her termination is first rate! There is a key at the side that gives her a bit of a dent, but offers an ergonomic position to hold her while you work with her. She is in excellent condition and will be a favorite of her Keeper!

I am 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 his citrine soul, he 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 Curved Lightning Strike Pleiadian Quartz#TSW9570. Gently Curved Lightning Strike Pleiadian Quartz

This is a gently curved 4.8 oz 3.8” by 1.4” by 1.1” crystal from the Serra Do Cabral Mountains in Brazil. Bits of golden healer staining appear in areas and give her a slightly golden glow.  She is somewhat misted with little silver shields inside that light her up and highlight the series of unusual and holographic Pleiadian glyphs among her Lemurian lines … and there are more glyphs on all her terminal faces. There is a diagonal, shallow key on one side and another on her largest terminal face. If you look closely, there is a meandering lightning that begins on a side and continues along the edge of the termination, exiting at the apex.  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.

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.

Opalescent Sacred Ancient Lightning Strike Quartz – Shaped by Lightning#TSW9769. Opalescent Sacred Ancient Lightning Strike Quartz – Shaped by Lightning

This is an opalescent 3.8 oz, 2.9” by 1.3” by 1.2” quartz from the Serra do Cabral Mountains in Brazil.  She has ancient Lemurian lines on her slightly matte finish sides (which gives her the opalescent look) and among the glyphs, are not one, but three meandering lightning strikes! There is one each on opposing sides  and another that begins on a terminal face and crosses at the terminal apex. There is also a healed one on her side and you can see that she has been shaped through the eons by lightning. Her V-shaped base is healed and believe me when I say that she will rock your world!

Cathedraled, Partially Polished Sacred Ancient Lightning Strike Quartz - Altar#TSW9992. Cathedraled, Partially Polished Sacred Ancient Lightning Strike Quartz - Altar

This is a gorgeous 5 lb 6.4 oz, 9.2” by 3.5” by 3.6” single crystal from Brazil with glorious cathedraling.  She has fascinating Pleiadian glyphs mingled with the ancient Lemurian lines and her slanted base is healed.  Her sides and faces are partially polished and as I was photographing her, I realized why … she is a lightning strike and they were removing the lightning strike damage … yet, there is an area near the base that has the classic meandering lines – multiples of them – that have healed!  I was amazed by how much current she must have handled through the eons without completely shattering!  A bit of golden healer colors small areas at her base … she is truly a magic Spirit of wondrous energy, perfect for your altar spaces!

This is an opalescent 1 lb 10 oz, 5.2” by 3.3” by 2.1” quartz from the Serra do Cabral Mountains in Brazil.  She has ancient Lemurian lines on her slightly matte finish sides (which gives her the opalescent look) and among the glyphs, are not one, but two meandering lightning strikes … and it’s evident that it’s happened in the past as there are a number of areas that have healed over, including a ting to the back of the termination as well as along several keys.  You can see that she has been shaped through the eons by lightning throughout her years within Mother Earth. There are some golden healer inclusions and she fills with light from the foils created by the lightning traversing through her … simply magnificent!

Zesty and Fiery Mosaic Red Amphibole with Riebeckite Lightning Strike Quartz – Know Inner Truth#TSW10610. Zesty and Fiery Mosaic Red Amphibole with Riebeckite 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 largely opaque and with some growth interference by riebeckite on the side and termination. Inside she is rather mosaic-looking and a deep, fiery red. Her base is irregular but totally healed with some golden healer touches … and there are several areas of round, mounded hematite with golden healer edging. She has nice Lemurian lines and rather interesting glyphs … but the mind-blowing part is the well-defined lightning strike path leading up one side and to an edge! These were held aside by the miners just for my supplier to see during a recent trip to Brazil. She is a hefty 13.0 oz and 4.9” by 1.9” by 1.5” and 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 Shaped-by-Lightning-Strikes Light Smoky Citrine Quartz#TSW10614. Ancient Shaped-by-Lightning-Strikes Light Smoky Citrine Quartz

This another of those amazingly powerful and intense lightning strike quartz from Brazil who wanted badly to be listed! She is a light citrine with tinges of smoke, 2.4 oz and 2.3" by 1.2" by 1" and is totally shaped by lightning strikes, some of which have left inner fractures in her upper half. There is a triangular key to her back and she has a large, dominant seven-sided face. Beyond the typical lightning strike paths, there are areas where the lightning has danced across her surfaces and left an assortment of teeny strikes. There are delicate Lemurian lines and 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.
