These are called Dream Domes or Shamanic Dream globes because of the wonderful inclusions in the quartz that are contained in a partially polished, lens-like shape. Usually, they are sort of dome shaped with a flat, natural or natural base. When I got these in from my supplier, I was totally captivated! This one has a sort of v-ed, polished base with a domed top that really accentuates the lens effect. The quartz is slightly smoky, but because of the inclusions, the Dream Dome looks brownish until you inspect more closely. And, I apologize as she also created a photographic challenge – the dome aspect of her was a very effective lens and while the eye adapts, the camera does not. In any case, she is truly magnificent! Inside you will see an alien landscape created by bits of lodelite and rutile in overlapping, golden starbursts. The landscape of the natural quartz adds to the effect and it’s nothing short of stunning! She is a great personal size, 1.4” by 1.2” by 0.8” weighing 1.1 oz and she is from Gouvia, Brazil.
Now, typically, Dream Domes are used for scrying (like a crystal ball) and evaluating dreams. You sit in meditation (and I like my favorite incense burning and beautiful music playing like Fairy Ring by Michael Rowland or Novus Magnificat by Constance Denby). Because there is a natural side, you can anoint the base of the Dome with rainwater so that the crystalline musk mingles with the incense and stimulates the senses. Open both hands and cup the Dome either in one or between them and allow your mind to enter the world below. Ask questions and allow the answers to come. Now, understand that they may be in ‘code’ in that the information you get back will be symbolic. As an example, cleaning house may not represent physical cleaning, but rather sorting through ideas and beliefs that no longer work for you. Be open to the possibilities and savor the time that you have with this rare and magnificent crystalline helper!
