This is a an oddly-shaped and meandering elestial crystal, 1.2 oz and 2.25” by 1/3” by 1.4” from Karur, India. With a loupe glyphs on her tiny faces, tiny spheroids of hematite, tiny “spears” of rutile and several tiny scepters on her outer edge. Her meandering and curious shape is from several ancient keys, the largest of which nicely holds a thumb-tip (picture shown). She is shades of amethyst ranging form palest to rich and you will see a bit of golden-green mica among the crystals at her base. She is delightful in her uniqueness and in excellent condition, ready to work with her Keeper.
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 face, 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.
Her energies are full of 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 she 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.
