Each shipment of Blue Tara quartz has been different, yet similar in energy and this Spirit epitomizes the last of the three shipments I have received. The blue-gray color within the quartz comes from riebeckite inclusions and this wonderful cluster has a variety of expression with steel-blue-gray blended with bits of blue and blue-gray sand in the crystal grottos! Her base is rather flat and shimmers from tiny terminations. The cluster crystals show growth-interference from the riebeckite and some have curious silhouettes with this shaping. They splay out around the central tall crystal and provide so many loupe-worthy areas for exploration! She is a perfect meditation size at 3 oz and 3.25” by 3.05” by 1.2” and is in excellent condition!
In Tibetan tradition, there is a Green Tara and a White Tara with Green Tara protecting Earth and White Tara protecting long life and peace. Tara, whose name means “star”, is further the equivalent of a female Buddha. Now, this crystal is blue not green, and she feels like a different aspect of Earth – the oceans. Earth is more ocean than land, so it’s particularly suiting that Blue Tara also represents the Earth. And further, her ice blue color brings in the energies of the Arctic regions. Beyond her other energies, she offers to her Keeper a wonderful way to work with the energies of the Earth and contribute to the repair of the damage humans have done.
Cradle this Spirit in a hand and immediately, you will feel yourself surrounded by a halo of energy and there will be a fragrance, somewhat like lily-of-the-valley; sweet, clear and heady. In her is love and compassion, understanding and knowing. She clears away pretense and pain, opening your heart and your mind to her protection and guidance. It is said that Green Tara offered protection to those incarcerated during the Chinese occupation of Tibet. Blue Tara offers protection to the Oceans and Oceanic Ice and those born of the Water Signs. The Celts also have a Tara, the Fins have Tar, the Egyptians, Ishtar and the Cheyenne have Star Woman - all Tara. She is all cultures, all races and all women. Work with her in celebration of peace, protection and all that is life and life-giving – she is astounding!
