This is a wonderful 2.4 oz, 1.8” by 1.3” by 1.2” Prophecy Stone (aka ‘Vision Stone’) from the White Desert in Farafra, Egypt. These are actually a pseudomorph of hematite, limonite, goethite after marcasite … and if you look closely, you can see the original crystalline structure of the marcasite, particularly with his rather cubist shape. A pseudomorph is a mineral that appears in a form other than its own crystalline structure, having totally replaced another, but the appearance and shape of the original mineral is retained … like a mold. The color is a dark, chocolate brown, blended with a little “milk chocolate” and the entire stone itself has almost a waxy feel, smooth and warm to the touch, but clink two together and there is a metallic sound. He clearly shows his base crystalline structure as a meandering array arranged like a sitting Buddha … very sacred. I love his crystalline expression and hope his new Keeper does as well!
The White Desert is mystic, magical and formidable. It is part of the vast Sahara and Farafra is one of the five oasis within it. The sand is calcium rich and the rock formations are surreal and yet, the only sentient life for miles. It is no wonder that it is a resource for some of the most powerful stones in the world. Look at the Prophecy Stone … dark, brown and unassuming … yet pick him up and you are in for a surprise! Brown stones are grounding, right? Not this one! He will literally take your breath away as he clears the Crown and starts the Third Eye to pulsing! These stones have long been sought after and treasured by those seeking visions and once you hold one, you will understand why. My first time working with one had me sitting quietly and going with the upward sweeping sensation. Tears poured down my cheeks and the opening was amazing … I felt like I could barely walk … it was so amazing! Like the Moz, each is unique to a Keeper and will open specific aspects of your psychic abilities. All I can say is ‘hold onto your hat’!
