This is a somewhat rugged and empathic 7.7 oz, 4” by 2” by 1.4” quartz cluster from Messina, South Africa quartz. The Messina mines have long been flooded, and although there are new and limited finds, any crystal from Messina is rare and precious … this one is from the original find. The cluster is no looker … it is mist-filled and Partially coated with an agglomeration of tiny quartz crystals. Underneath are hematite-red crystals on one side and on the other, the crystal is more lustrous. With a loupe, you can see little spheroids of hematite and in the crevices, blue-green plancheite. The base is slanted as she was sawn off and she will self-stand on it. There is a large ding that partially exposes the inner clarity of the crystal and about obliterates two terminal faces. Remaining faces are polished with a small ding at the top of one face. As I was taking pictures, I noticed the face to the side of the dinged one with a pop of bright blue papagoite! The dig exposes the side … it actually forms a phantom! The papagoite is lovely blue needles that little the face! I was stunned ... papagoite is even more rare and more precious than ajoite! She may be humble looking and empathic, but her energies sing a spectacularly angelic song … and exceptionally well I might add!
This is a Spirit totally and wholly focused on selfless, wondrous, never-ending love! She deftly blends Mother Earth, Mother Mary, Archangels, Quan Yin, Isis – every loving, divine entity that has touched our lives! She draws from the wealth of love and its related emotions of compassion, understanding, empathy, tolerance, mercy, forgiveness and unmitigated joy! She is a blazing ray of light, reaching to our hearts and joining our Self with All That Is. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote a book called “The Little Prince” and in it there is a quote that says “Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.” (It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.) She is the eye of the heart in every regard and to be her Keeper is to have your heart opened in a manner that you have never experienced. Her heavy hematite cloaking was necessary to afford the grounding required when you work with her. She is a special Spirit for a very special Keeper.
