This is a 2 oz blushed smoky quartz from Brazil, measuring 2.2” by 1.5” by 1” and he is truly both awesome and surprising! His faces are polished and there are keys on three sides and a bit on a fourth. He’s rather matte which makes his phantom hard to see well, but it’s clearly there and dominant. When I took pictures, I thought the phantom was a brown chlorite but when I checked him with a loupe, I about fell over … his phantom is piled layers of golden rutile crystals – that’s a first for me! He may look humble, but make no mistake … he is electric and totally surprising!
If you have never worked with rutile quartz, this Spirit will hook you immediately. Rutile inclusions are sometimes called angel hair because of the way they dance and play with the light. As you sit and study the light play, you become aware of a sense of calm washing over you. This Spirit is just a champion at restoring balance and helping you feel like you understand what has happened. As an example, say you have had a bad week: car broke down, weather was awful, you were late for an important appointment and it got worse from there. Sit with this Spirit for a while and really allow the rutile energies to “scrub” those negative vibrations from your aura. Allow yourself to retrace the events as well as the ultimate outcome. Each event, in and of itself, takes on a different perspective when you look at the big picture. And sometimes, the Universe uses events such as this to get your attention. Regular meditation with this Spirit will help maintain an even keel and resolve things before they manifest into disease. He is also an important Spirit to tuck under a pillow for dream work – he is awesome with dream recall!
