This is a 3.4 oz, 4.65” by 1.2” by 1.1” Athena quartz from Diamantina, Brazil. She is a lovely, clear but also opalescent wand with a good number of slender rods of tourmaline scattered about mainly in her termination as well as one long one that literally goes diagonally from side to opposite side. There are teeny bits of mica embedded in the sides below the termination and they form intricate patterns. Her sides are slightly matte and a large, shallow key rims here healed base, adding to the matte look to her. At the left edge of the key, a student bridges three sides but terminated at the intersection with the main crystal. Her sides hold Pleiadian and a few Sirius starbrary glyphs mingled among the Lemurian lines … and she has two small curves. The student, curves and the key provide good thumb and finger spots while you work with her and they seem to act as a guide for the energy moving through her so that they are accelerated off the tourmaline and then through her termination. She has a few teeny dings, 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.
