LifeSize Himalayan Quartz Crystal Skull - Gorgeous Star Galaxy Inclusions!
This is a life-size Himalayan Quartz Crystal Skull! Approximately the size of a human adult, weighing 10lbs 9.4oz (so just over 10 1/2 lbs). The stone itself comes from the Himalayan Mountains, near Tibet, and is very energetic! This is a new carving style with more details - I feel this is especially visible in the face and in/around the cheekbones/back of the jaw. My favorite part is... it's smiling! :-> The nostrils are drilled all the way through the stone (and come out in the underside of the skull). This was done intentionally, so that you can use circular breathing exercises/techniques to connect with/work with this skull.
This particular skull has been deeply discounted in price (about 70% off). In 2017, we had to pack up and evacuate for massive wildfires 2x, and some pieces ended up with "owies" during the 2 mile trek down our mountain dirt road, then another 20 mile or so trailer ride to the safety of a friend's yard while we waited to hear if our house was still standing. It was awful. The energy of the stones is still strong and intense, and a number of the pieces that got hurt in the evacuation have found new homes with loving caretakers, and this one is ready to go out into the world now. The "owie" on this particular skull has been highlighted with ORANGE ARROWS in one of the photos. A small piece of crystal came off, leaving a notch behind. It is approx. 1/2" long X 3/8" wide.
This one has a beautiful sparkly "star galaxy" inclusions. Like someone gathered up tiny stars and threw them across the crystal, but on the inside. These are particularly visible in the back of the head. See the third photo (a close-up) for some idea of what they look like. The inclusions are also considered to be 'yin/yang' formations, as there is a large "plane" inclusion dividing the skull between front and back. The longer you look, the more beautiful details you will see. It's just fabulous in bright light! There is this silky shimmery quality that shows up as you move the stone around in your hands. PLUS some rainbows here and there. There is subtle Hematite above (reddish) and below (golden orange) the nose, too. This particular crystal had a lot of seismic events going on around it as it grew, which is how it ended up with some VUGS throughout. Vugs are natural formations, sometimes also known as "crystal cave inclusions", and considered highly collectible. I've highlighted them from various angles with GREEN ARROWS in the photos. There is one in the left side of the nose, several in the top/back of the head, and one in the underside of the jaw. Some of these have faint opaque white residue in them - this is from Calcite filling in the voids after earthquakes occurred and shifted the way the Quartz was growing. Calcite is much softer than Quartz, and so eventually it dissolves or flakes off, which in this case left behind these amazing vugs! You can also see an area around the vug in the back of the head where the crystal is self-healed. The vug goes down deeper into the skull in this area, and you can see the edges along either side as is progresses where the crystal began anew and grew in a slightly different way after it was literally shaken up in the earth. This is one of the most unique Himalayan Quartz skulls I've ever had. It's just magnificent in person. MUCH more so than the photos could ever show.
Really, this skull took some amazing skill to carve. The crystal is SO complex, with so many strange planes and formations. Every angle had to be done just right for the crystal to remain intact. So beautiful!
It weighs about 10lbs 9.4oz and measures approx. 8" inches long X 5 5/8" inches wide at the widest point X about 5 7/8" inches tall. Code18328
Besides the aforementioned "owie" there are some small organic spots that come from inclusions or the edges of inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was polished. I inspect each crystal very carefully before photographing it, and always pick by energy first. These do not affect the energy or, I think, the overall look. Some people do not appreciate natural inclusions. I think it adds to the overall effect to have the natural inclusions in place. It takes a skilled carver to work with and honor the natural the crystal and not break the inner energy matrix. (But that is a personal preference!) ALL inclusions present, besides the aforementioned "owie", come from 100% natural formations in the stone. The photos just can't do it justice - it is much nicer 'in person', I guarantee it! Check out how it works with subtle energies below.
Rainbows in Crystals are thought to be able to manifest some of the purest energies on earth and take the user to higher realms. They can help with Lucid dreaming and bring understanding of dreams. Some believe that these crystals exhibit the closest manifestation of pure white light that can be experienced on the physical plane. Rainbow crystals are used during meditation to and bring depth and clarity to dreams and move through negativity.
Hematite (sometimes spelled Hemetite) is used to assist in grounding and calming and in manifesting Divine Light in your life. It deflects and dissolves negative energies. Hematite is a stone for the mind. It helps one to "sort-out" things in one's mind and can be used for mental attunement, memory enhancement, original thinking and technical knowledge. It is a calming energy and encourages one to "reach for the stars". It is said to attract "kind" love and acts as a stabilizing force, brings peace, self-control and inner happiness. Shamans have used it with blood disorders. Hematite is associated with the root (base) chakra and is said to attract compassionate love. Hematite is a must for anyone interested in working with crystals and stones! In Crystal Healing, it is used to calm the nerves, for insomnia, and to align the spine and speed the mending of broken bones. Hematite is associated with the root (base) chakra.
Quartz is often said to be the crystal or "stone" that everyone needs to start with. Quartz is the most recognized type of crystal and is what many people think of when they hear the word crystal - although there are many, many different types of crystals in all kinds of stones.Quartz can be as clear as ice (ancients called quartz ‘Holy Ice’ and thought that it came from the heavens) or milky white.
It can have inclusions, veils, bubbles, unusual formations, etc.
Clarity is not important for a quartz crystal's energetic quality and in fact, inclusions and impurities can make the crystal more energetic and increase it’s ability to amplify subtle energies. Without a few 'imperfections, the energy is often not as intense. Lab crystals are grown with impurities on purpose and depending on the type and placement, will change the frequency that the crystal oscillates at.
Quartz can store energy, amplify it, focus it, transmit it, transform it, balance it, absorb it…
Various types and formations are better for some things than others. Quartz in any form is a powerful stone.
Quartz has long been used to direct and amplify thoughts and intentions - because all thoughts are a form of energy and intentions shape and will effect subtle energies. Because of this, it is useful for healing work, meditation, protection, and manifesting and channeling. Quartz is thought to store information of all types and make it available again for retrieval. The idea behind this is that information is just another form of an energy pattern. Quartz may be held directly on the third eye to increase the clarity of a psychic vision. Many Shamans and Crystal Healers use Quartz to perceive and communicate with other worlds, for dream work, scrying or crystal gazing, perceiving spirits and for channeling. Quartz may be used to dispel and clear negative energies.
Quartz is associated with the crown chakra, but in the hands of someone skilled and focused, may also be used to energize all of the chakras. In Crystal Healing, Quartz is said to be effective for chronic fatigue, arthritis, depression, bone ailments and gastrointestinal troubles. It is also used to improve mental and physical stamina.
Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
The first layer you encounter when working with any skull, including Synergy, is "to remember." This is the first layer - and this layer has many other layers within it. What you are to called to remember is who you really are. It's so easy to get caught up in the daily things and forget that each life is short and sweet, even with the difficulties. The real you is a Being of Light. You are a Spiritual Being, inside of a physical body. "Remember."
