These unusual Spirits are charming, evocative and warming! This one is 1.7 oz and 2.8” by 1.25” by 1.3” and she is red clay-colored although she isn’t clay at all, but an agglomeration of calcites … you can see the little crystals with a loupe. She is two, gracefully curved little bowl-like lobes that looks like ancient flowers … and she shimmers in the light! What a fascinating creation, complements of Mother Earth!

Stromatolites are Pre-Cambrian fossils of microbiological colonies or ‘mats’, likely cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria are marine bacteria found in all over the globe and are the main mechanism for carbon fixation in the oceans. Some are deep sea and others are surface, but all manage to thrive in concentrations of metallic ions that others cannot (either high or low) and some are boldly pigmented. They are found everywhere … at ocean depths, along oceanic shores and even in areas where there were once ancient oceans. In fact, many scientists postulate that the oceans were derived from the stars as icy meteors struck Earth and provided the first water and microorganisms.

For these species, albeit primitive, to persist since practically the dawn of life on Earth, they have adapted and changed. Continually evolving and yet maintaining their role in the huge chain of life, these organisms were a brave first ‘step’ in a new and hostile land. This wonderful Spirit teaches us the importance of change, transition and adaptation. She was ‘born’ of the sky and yet also the oceans and the Earth, illustrating balance among the Spirits of each. In her Earthly expression now, she is largely calcite and an unusual fossil marking one of the most significant events in Earth’s path. She is an important addition to your change and transition altar or a wonderful meditation companion for grounding and balance. Her energies are soft and embracing and I found deep comfort in working with her. She will be a wonderful resource to her Keeper.
