This is a 0.5 oz, 1.4” by 1” by 0.6” manifestor Brandberg smoky quartz scepter with marvelous side and facial glyphs. He has an overall misted look largely due to his intricately etched surfaces, quite unlike what you think of as a Brandberg … he looks really ancient! Search him with a loupe and you will find manifestors (and a few rainbows) that appear more like a shadow under his frosty surfaces. There are also a few tiny black tourmaline manifestors as well as some little rods on the surfaces. He is from an AAA collection I acquired some time ago. Although, I wouldn't consider him AAA quality, he is still exceptional and extremely energetic, guaranteed to tingle your fingers!
The Brandberg quartz is among the oldest in the world and this scepter illustrates the true ‘old soul’ nature of the Spirit within. To Eastern belief systems, fire, water, earth and air, if all represented together, showed the perfect balance among physical, emotional and Spiritual aspects. He is born of the Earth and bears its mark in his base, and yet has the fire of his rainbows. Born of the Earth, Brandbergs were once molten (liquid) quartz and represents the melding of liquid and solid. This Spirit epitomizes that critical balance and brings us totally to who we are as he helps his Keeper understand sense of purpose in this lifetime. Further, he is a manifestor. Now all these are exceedingly auspicious in a crystal … this is one of great power, great exploration and great probabilities. He offers a profound message for our lives and helps us understand the precious nature of Now as well as the Spirit that our efforts aspire to … and once we understand, we can live well in it.
