This is a special Spirit from Campo Formoso, Bahia, Brazil, 2.4 oz and 2.5” by 1.2” by 1”. The quartz itself is quite fascinating – slightly matte finish with the back showing keys and a bit of chlorite erosion, now totally healed and glistening with tiny terminations. The termination is relatively clear … this clarity showcases the wonderful lodelite (aka chlorite) phantom that fills the back of the crystal. This phantom is somewhat rugged looking and instead of being shades of green, this one is rich shades of browns, russets and touches of gold. And if you catch the light just right, there are strange and subtle glyphs on the largest faces and four sides. She is also an earthquake quartz – damaged within the Earth and now totally healed with the scar remaining. These are commonly called “garden quartz” but something of the colors made me think more of Middle Earth quartz based on the fiction works created by J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien didn’t make up the land of Middle Earth, but had based it on ancient legends of the lands where elves, fairies and other beings lived. I think you’ll find this Spirit very fascinating and not the drab crystal she may have seemed at first. She has a few little dings, but nothing of significance at all.
When we were children, our minds were far more open to elves, fairies and other beings … in face, they seemed full of mischief and yet wisdom at the same time which further intrigued us. Most of us now think that Middle Earth was all fiction and yet … there is that lingering suspicion that they are the muses, the ones that come in our dreams and set our imaginations free. And such is the energy of this splendid wand … she is one who will stimulate the imagination and release the joy of mystery that you found as a child. She is for a Keeper who seeks to relate either to children directly or to the child within …
