This is an amazing 0.6 oz, 1.3" by 1.1” by 0.6” DT amethyst from Karur, India that is a wonderful undulating and radiating mound of sparkling elestial amethyst that rather resembles a violet and elongated chrysanthemum with accents of clear quartz crystals and a spot of green prehnite. She is a DT floater meaning she has no point of attachment to a larger crystal and is perfectly terminated all over. With a loupe, you will see tiny spheroids of hematite and golden crystals of cacoxinite! Her faces have marvelous glyphs on them and she is a study in miniature – a regal crystalline flower. The pictures do not come close to revealing how sparkly she is! It is said that crystals grew in Atlantis and Lemuria like flowers and seeing her, I am convinced that legend is truth!
She comes from Karur, located in southern India and known for its lush scenery and ancient temples. Karur has been an important part of the Tamil Nadu region for hundreds of years and boasts a rich and varied history. They are known for their beautiful textiles as well as brilliant gemstone beads. In fact, so much of the mine production is used to produce these beads, that little intact material ever leaves India. And the really, really good news is that my supplier was able to get me more crystals from Karur … new production after the Asian Tsunami had virtually destroyed the Tamil Nadu region!
The chrysanthemum symbolizes happiness, love and joy. An autumn flower, the mum will bloom until the direst frost of winter cuts it down. For some, this means that the flower has the ability to bridge the yin times of both harvest and death for a glorious rebirth in the spring, linking heaven and Earth. It is this energy that she brings to her Keeper – the abundance of a full heart that has the ability to grow and bloom love and enhance Spiritual Advancement through its purity.
