Red amphibole quartz (sometimes called rooster quartz) comes from Serra do Cabral Mountains in Brazil. Unlike the lovely pastel or sunrise/sunset-toned amphiboles, these are definite shades of russet-red, sometimes accented with greens, blues and gold. Amphibole minerals have no crystalline form and meander through the crystal like scarves in the wind. This Spirit is healed all over but has polished faces to better view the awesome interior of the crystal. There are a number of students at her base and to her back, there is a flattened (and healed) area where she grew against something flat and hard. Although the crystal has matte sides, she is fairly clear with a stream of riebeckite that runs against a background of russet amphibole and through the termination from one side to the opposite side! There is more red amphibole to one side and a plume of riebeckite that looks a bit like a waterfall. This may have been a stargazer/penetrator but with the face polished, it’s hard to tell exactly. Study it with a loupe and you will see this extraordinary occurrence! She is 6.5 oz and 4.25” by 2” by 1.8” and although she looks a bit strange, she is in excellent condition.
Red amphibole is a wonderful Spirit to help you come in contact with that inner truth that is in your Core Chakra. The Core Chakra is frequently ignored, under the assumption that all the other ones need work while this one is doing just fine. The Core is your connection to Self, family and community and as such is the vessel holding your Core beliefs … the ones that guide your life. But, like the garden, the Core beliefs need weeding in order to remain strong and beautiful so from time to time, you need to align these with your stage of Spiritual advancement. But this special Spirit has riebeckite! While still maintaining the Core energies, she allows you to better speak (and thus bring into the physical) your own Truth. This Spirit is a loyal assistant in that quest as she helps you understand that throughout your life, there is a part of your Core that is “fixed” while another part changes to accommodate the Spiritual growth you experience. While that fixed portion is important, equally important is the flexibility to allow change and in that flexibility, permit the Spiritual growth to become part of your foundation. All that Spiritual growth is without merit if it does not become an integral part of your physical expression and complete you as a person – this is the one and premier Inner Truth! She is truly a Spirit that should be with you at all times!
