This wondrous cluster is an utterly amazing array of variety, sparkle, glitter and intense energy!! First, she is from Dal’negorsk, Russia, weighs 1.5 oz and measures 2.2" by 1.9" by 1.2” and sits on a siderite-stained base. If you study her with a loupe, you see rainbows aplenty as you move her in the light! Stunning, stunning, stunning! I am astounded, amazed and in awe of the beauty of this cluster … topped only by the intensity of the energy that she generates!
This is part of a shipment of wonderful crystals from Russia and I have to admit to being totally ga-ga still months after unpacking the first one! I truly love the intensity of this cluster – a study in contrasts. The green hedenbergite is soft and soothing, a profound heart stone with protective qualities. The apophyllite adds elements of higher Self that spawn discovery and intuition. And, it is symbolic of the process we go through in setting up a communication with our Higher Self. It begins with the physical, often with a profound healing challenge such as a serious illness or accident. In the healing process, we learn that we are more than our physical Self and begin to expand our mind in order to facilitate the healing. As we grow in our abilities, our Higher Self gains a larger voice and activates much more easily. This is the Self that guides and nurtures – that teaches us to trust those “voices” inside that some call “gut feeling” or intuition. This Spirit teaches us to truly feel with our heart and speak with the truth of the Soul!
