This is a 1.8 oz, 3.4” by 0.85” by 0.75” ST Athena quartz from Diamantina, Brazil. She is a lovely, brilliantly-clear crystal that offers a good look at the slender rods of tourmaline scattered about within her and embedded on the eroded area of her upper termination. Her sides are slightly cathedrals and decorated with Sirius starbrary glyphs mingled among the Lemurian lines. Her entire presentation seems to act as a guide for the energy moving through her so that they are accelerated off the tourmaline and then through her terminations. She has a thin scrape along one terminal face edge, 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.
