This is an astonishing and glittering 2.2 oz, 2.2” by 1.8” by 1.3” amethyst from Karur, India that is a wonderful mounded, sparkling elestial amethyst that seems to be two shades of violet. It app[ears as though her crystals were formed in layers, the original rich amethyst being the base and then topped with a pale amethyst riddled with dark rutile. Her base side has a bit of sparkly Mother Earth matrix with two little mounds of pale amethyst quartz! Her faces rare tiny, adding to the glittery effect. Plus, she is a great palm size and rests well right on the palm meridians. 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 Karurs, although the supply is totally limited now as the Asian Tsunami has destroyed the Tamil Nadu region and it’s unlikely that new production will ever come from here.
Flowers of any description symbolize happiness, love and joy. With her autumn colors at the edges, she is like an autumn flower, welcoming the season of the harvest and blooming until the first frosts take her 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.
