This Spirit was found in a group of red lightning strike amphibole quartz from Serra do Cabral Mountains in Brazil … and is particularly mind-blowing! Her amphibole is predominantly blue (riebeckite) with only a touch of red mixed with some white actinolite. Take out a loupe and see that atop that central band of mixed amphiboles, there is a city of quartz crystals on BOTH sides of that band! Her slanted base is healed into tiny terminations and she has a bit of cathedraling on her sides. Now, the “piece de resistance” is the incredible lightning strike path that goes from base to termination … it’s accented by what looks like goethite and is a series of parallel lines that zig and zag throughout! Studying her with a loupe is a meditation in itself. These were held aside by the miners just for my supplier to see during a trip to Brazil. She is a splendid Spirit at 2.3 oz and is 3.25” by 1” by 0.9” and although a bit rugged looking, is in excellent condition. And she is a one-of a kind Spirit!

My first lightning strike quartz actually happened to me. I had a particularly intense meditation and at the end, I went to set the crystal on the table as I got up. The room was dark and as I reached for the table, there was a flash of light and an audible pop and I felt a piece of the crystal hit my palm! This was some time ago and I'd never heard of lightning strike quartz, so I thought the crystal was ruined! There was a gash running nearly her whole length, all cross-hatched. She was extraordinarily hot too! I emailed a friend and she explained what had happened – and my quartz was far from ruined – she is one of the most intense crystals that it has been my privilege to know – and she is a perennial meditation favorite! Interestingly, this process is similar to what happens when the crystal is in the ground. Lightning strikes in the vicinity and the current created leaves these marks on the surfaces.

Generally these amphiboles are red and more associated with the Core Chakra. This Spirit runs the gambit from top to bottom with her lightning path that seems to symbolize the rise of the Kundalini! 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 and white actinolite! While still maintaining the Core energies, she allows you to better speak (and thus bring into the physical) your own Truth and with that truth, the path opens to the Causal Chakras. 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. The lightning strike markings show that there is a definite path to follow to ensure the change. 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 once-in-a-lifetime Spirit that should be with you at all times!
