This is a 2.8 oz, 3.75” by 1.4” by 0.9” Athena quartz from Diamantina, Brazil. She is a lovely, clear but also opalescent wand with a good number of slender rods of tourmaline scattered about mainly in her termination. Her sides are slightly matte and a long, shallow key extends nearly her length, adding to the matte look to her. Her sides hold Pleiadian and Ursa Minor glyphs mingled among the Lemurian lines … and she has a nice curve. Both the curve and the key provide good thumb and finger spots while you work with her and they seem to act as a guide for the energy moving through her so that they are accelerated off the tourmaline and then through her termination. She has a few teeny dings, but she is otherwise excellent!
This is a stunning Athena quartz, named for the Greek goddess, Athena who was supposed to have carried an owl on her shoulders when she talked to people so that both the spoken and unspoken could be heard, thereby seeing both sides to the truth. There are few better stones than tourmaline for dispelling negativity and quartz is a frequent companion of tourmaline. Both quartz and tourmaline are piezoelectric which means that they conduct electricity when put under pressure. That pressure can come from the energies that you impart during a crystal healing or Reiki treatment or meditation and amplify the intent, dissolving fear, promoting self worth and banishing a fatalist attitude. Ancient lore has held that tourmaline is a kind of “truth serum”, thus its critical inclusion in Athena quartz. Its energies are so cleansing and refreshing that it is difficult to hide the truth, especially from your Self. This all makes it much easier to make difficult decisions and shift consciousness in a positive manner. The double terminated nature of this Spirit represents the dual nature of the Self – what you are at the core and what you project to others, often different things. This is an incredible Spirit for seeking and finding your own truth, and the balance in that truth, so crucial to your Spiritual journey.
