This is an incredible and petite beta quartz cluster, 3.4 oz and 2.7” by 2.35” by 0.8” from Dal’negorsk, Russia. Most of the Russian beta quartz clusters I’ve seen have either been clear quartz or hedenbergite included … not so this one. She has lovely, pale-almost-pink hematite phantoms! And she is dotted with black areas of ilvaite. With a loupe, you can see that the clear quartz was a secondary growth and the details inside are breathtaking! Her quartz crystals are beautifully terminated and well-glyphed and you truly must see this to special cluster to appreciate the amazement of her! Mother Nature is certainly astounding!
She is a beta quartz meaning that she was formed under higher temperature and pressure than other quartz. Beta quartz is more highly ordered and has more symmetry than regular (alpha) quartz and over all it is less dense. As a result, the vibrations are somewhat different – more pure and more intense. In Russia, mining for these crystals is limited to only a few months a year, so these beauties are even more rare. Hematite inclusions are even more uncommon and offer a critical connection to the Core Self. She has such a loving energy that you immediately want to place in an area where you spend a lot of time so that she can surround you with purest love, so unconditional that you know your own belonging … right to your core! She instills in her Keeper, the most Spiritual of energies, helping maintain that loving cloud on a constant basis. What a treasure this unusual and wonderful jewel is!
As a note, all of my Russian stock is old stock and pre-Putin.
