This is a special Spirit from Espirito Santo, Brazil, an unusual and colorful light amethyst quartz with mysterious and varied inclusions … and she is more curious than most. She is 3.4 oz and 2.4” by 1.5” by 1.3” with a healed base. She is keyed around the base on all but two sides and she is far more golden than any of the other quartz in this group. She is an earthquake quartz and eons ago, she was fractured and healed nicely but the scar remains. All around is a fringe of pink from lepidocrosite and silvery flashes of rutile, all set in her light matte finished and glyphed. She is not a Melody Stone, although she comes from the same area. No matter … she is totally amazing and you will marvel at the variety as you study her with a loupe. All I can say, is that she is drop dead gorgeous and the energy will curl your hair! She has a few tiny dings but is totally excellent … and beyond loupe-worthy! St. Elmo’s fire is a name my supplier gave these amazing quartz and it’s a bit of a misnomer.
St. Elmo’s fire is a natural phenomenon that occurs when a charge builds up from a storm cloud and discharges onto some tall, pointed object on the ground. It is plasma like in its discharge and gives an eerie glow around the object. Most commonly, it is seem along ship masts at sea (adding to the myth of ghost ships), but can be seen on pointed buildings, trees, flag poles and even grass on the ground. But with this crystal, you truly don’t get a discharge like this … rather she fills you with a glow of well-being, knowing, wisdom, love, protection, creativity and manifestation. Given this, I renamed her as ‘Ethereal Awakening quartz’ as that is precisely what she does. And in this age of Lemurian awakening, she appears at a most auspicious time to stimulate your own innate and/or latent psychic abilities. She is a go-to crystal who will so totally mesh with what you need (note that she does not deal with ‘want’ … only ‘need’) that you will wonder how you ever worked with crystals without her … she is that wonderful!
