These wonderful crystals are from Para, Brazil and are a delightful shades-of-tangerine color from hematite. Mineral acids within the Earth have left them sculpted, misshapen, etched, glyphed and marvelously healed throughout their ordeal. Physically they resemble the Himalayan Ice crystals (aka Himalayan Rosies) but their etheric role is different. The Himalayan Ice crystals are more heart related, whereas these tangerine ones are more focused on the lower Chakras where we store the gifts of our parents (our genetic heritage), our code of ethics, our inherited data and all our learned “basics” accumulated through life and growth. This Spirit is 4.1 oz and 2.8” by 1.1” by 1.4” and is rather unique even within these unique quartz. She shows significant dissolution at both her terminations and her color leans towards deep mauve in areas and nearly colorless in others with the hematite coloring in mottled, pointillist-style expression. I am amazed at her healing power and feel that there is a message of healing among those offered to her new Keeper. There is a ding to one side near the upper termination that is beginning to heal. And yes, that is Max in the background, photo-bombing.
These tangerines are teaching quartz, full of information, wisdom and discernment. They are the Ancient Sages whose role is to impart that knowledge accumulated through the eons to the those who would search. These Spirits have seen change beyond comprehension, learning from all and accumulating a vast and infinite “databank” of experience, adaptation and transmutation. The have experienced the fullness of time as they transitioned from molten molecules into crystals of silicon dioxide. They have felt the mineral acids sculpt that crystallization and experienced the washes of hematite that add color. Each transition makes them more beautiful physically and ethereally … and their knowledge grows. With each growth, their understanding and wisdom augments.
To work with these Ancient Sages, create a special space with incense and expansive music without words (such as the Americana Series: Desert Aire). You will feel immediate movement in your Core, gradually moving upward. These are chatty crystals given the chance, so “listening” is imperative. Old, useless core beliefs fade away and clear leaving your Core garden well-weeded. As the energy moves upward, I feel renewed passion activated … passion devoted to your heart’s desires be it dancing, singing, painting, poetry. Each Chakra is stimulated in turn until you reach those outside the physical body, connecting you to the Universe and All That Is. You and the Ancient Sage are in the center and All That Is swirls around you. I was humbled to tears as a flood of understanding washed over me … understanding that has no words to define it. These are truly transcendental Spirits and it is an honor to bond with one!
