In spite of first impressions, this is a brilliant 4.7 oz, 2.85” by 2.1” by 1.3” Herkimer-like quartz from Pakistan and he is from old stock. He was absolutely a killer to photograph, so the pictures, I’m embarrassed to admit, aren’t even close to showing how awesome he is! To his back, he heavy growth interference (actually sculpting his back into rather a dish shape) from deep golden rutile inclusions some of which are reticulated. Reticulated means that the rutile forms a basket-woven, lattice pattern making them look a lot like one of those old-fashioned antennas on the roof. Longer rods shoot through him and give him an overall warm and inviting glow and in spite of the photos, his clarity is amazing! Little fluffy clouds of white chlorite serve to scatter the light making him appear matte. A series of large record keepers adorn his dominant terminal face and he has the characteristic little rainbows that are commonly found in Herkimers. He is an amazement of energy and beauty! He does have a few tiny dings, but nothing of significance at all … he will rock your world in the best way possible!
When I unwrapped these beauties, I was astounded by their resemblance to the classic Herkimer “diamond” quartz … clear, brilliant and hugely energetic. This Spirit has an amazing “hand feel” and his energy truly belies his size! I am blown away by his rutile: electric, sensual and astounding … this is one awesome and powerful Spirit! You will be amazed – totally amazed – at how hot he feels. In my mind, he could only reach body temperature, held in the hand where you can run your fingers and thumb over his starbrary glyphs. But, he actually feels warmer as if he added his own energies to the mix. To work with him the first time, wash him carefully with rainwater and dry in the sun to activate. He likes incense burning, so that would be good as well – choose a good one! Then add music, like Novus Magnificat (my favorite by Constance Denby). Allow the entire sensory bundle to envelop you and your mind will easily go on a journey. He teaches you how to transmute and dispel negative energies and how to establish mental and emotional balance without losing creativity and emotion. He creates a cocoon of protection around you that is amazing! This is truly an amazing Spirit that will infuse you with joy, love and protection.
