This is an unusual quartz point from Goveia, Brazil weighing 8.4 oz and measuring 3.85” by 2” by 1.4”. The quartz itself is clear with lodelite inclusions (AKA chlorite) to the back where there has been significant erosion and healing. Lodelite is an extremely variable mineral and although usually shades of green, it can also be russet, pink, mauve, buff, yellow, gold and brown! In this Spirit, the chlorite is a truly lovely blend of shades mauve, pale green, buff and a bit of russet … like spring flowers on a hillside. The colors blend and resemble the look of a field or garden … hence the name. The termination holds a surprise in that there is an opalized area that is blue-purple! And you can literally see all the healing this crystal has undergone from the erosion to a large ding on the side! Now you can see why these are called garden quartz … it’s not about the commonality of them, but rather the specialness of a place that grows things that sustain our bodies and souls …
Many times in my childhood, I remember escaping the world and wandering through fields of flowers, bracken ferns and blueberry bushes. I used to lie among them and watch the clouds pass over, safe and knowing that no one knew I was there. It was a time of daydreaming, meditation and total freedom. Today, it is my greatest pleasure to take a coffee out in the morning and sit in my garden amid the birds and butterflies and ease into the day … or watch the night come and the first bright stars to appear. This is such a crystal – one to ease the stresses off you and allow you to reconnect with the Earth in a very sacred way. We spend much of our time in pursuit of Spiritual enlightenment and often forget that we are of this Earth and above all, no matter what we advance to, it all must be relevant to this physical expression or it is of no consequence. This special Spirit helps to keep your feet bare and in touch with the warmth of the Earth … and see the stars above in a special kind of light!
