This is a powerful and intense, ancient-looking lightning strike quartz point crown from Brazil. She is a light citrine, 6.5 oz and 3.3” by 1.65" by 1.3” and is riddled by lightning strikes, particularly around her base where the “lightning” danced as it ambled up her sides and onto her faces, leaving an assortment of little strikes. There is a deep key that impinges two terminal faces and it’s filled with a bit of creamy calcite and red hematite. Her base is partially healed and there are subtle glyphs on her faces. There are very small dings at her termination and it’s hard to tell whether they are true dings or part of the lightning strikes … either way, her intense energy is intact!
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.
As I said, I’m over the moon with these quartz – they are so varied and so mysterious. Interestingly, this Spirit seems best matched for a Keeper looking to express his or her own power in a positive, beneficial manner. Women, in particular, don’t totally express what is on their mind, trying to be cognizant of opinions and feelings of others. This is an important consideration, but many times we sacrifice our own feelings and opinions and totally allow only those of others. This leaves a sense of frustration and a lack of self-worth. But the struggle isn’t restricted only to women. Within the glow of protection from her citrine soul, she offers a surety and security about Self that allows full expression without hurting another. Trust that you will find the words and the means and then permit it to happen. The sense of freedom will be inspiring and freeing!
