This an amazingly powerful and intense lightning strike quartz wand from Diamantina, Brazil and is a nice slightly smoky golden citrine, 7.4 oz and 5” by 1.45” by 1.2”. He is dominated but a series of etched, skippy marks where the electricity danced un and across sides and even along the terminal face edges! Explore his faces with a loupe and you’ll see subtle glyphs and an arch shaped silver shield in his dominant terminal face! His slander base is healed and is edged on two sides by small keys. The minute you pick him up, you know you are holding a majorly energetic Spirit! There are a few little dings, but nothing of significance at all.
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.
From a scientific perspective, I understand what happened – quartz is piezoelectric meaning that it actually generates electricity when under pressure. That's why they use quartz in watches and other electronic items. When the pressure builds, the electricity has to discharge and it cause the characteristic zig-zag in the quartz. I also understand that lightning discharges near the crystal beds will do this as well – same principle. His smoky attributes speak to protection, while his citrine aspects speak to the Solar Plexus Chakra that serves as a gateway form the base Chakras to the emotional and etheric Chakras. These are rare Spirits and truly are one of profound change. Profound! This truly is a Spirit for a Light Worker on a sacred path and moving toward Spiritual enlightenment and growth.
