This is a large QUARTZ Dragon Crystal Skull. Beautiful and highly energetic! I only have a few Quartz pieces, and even fewer in this great larger size. So it's an extra special one! The crystal has intricate inclusions all throughout, including subtle reddish orange HEMATITE here and there around the underside, as well as in front of the left eye socket. Plus, a lot of shimmery areas and rainbows that catch the light as you move the stone around in your hands. Best seen under a bright light or in natural sunlight. BOTH sides of the head have these lovely shimmery rainbows down them!
You can feel a few subtle organic inclusions as you run your fingers over the stone. They can resemble pinpricks/tiny indents, or thin fine lines on the surface of the stone. ALL inclusions present are 100% natural parts of the stone. I inspect each piece very carefully before photographing it. A very special addition to any collection! Check out how it works with subtle energies below.
It weighs about 9.9oz (so just over half a pound) and measures approx. 4 1/4" inches long X 2 3/16" inches wide at the widest point X 2 1/8" inches tall. Code-022523-20738
As a totem animal, the Dragon represents the supernatural, and the spiritual forces of change or transformation. The Dragon is a fierce protector, and brings vitality, enthusiasm, and courage! It will assist in overcoming obstacles and learning the qualities of leadership.
Rainbows in Crystals aka Rainbow crystals. These are said to be able to manifest some of the purest energies on the physical plane and assist in raising one's spiritual vibrations. It is thought that they may assist one in moving through negativity.
They have long been thought to be very helpful in achieving Lucid Dreaming, and are also used in other types of dream work, as they are said to bring about spiritual understanding and clarity to dreams.
They are also used to help manifest, and become aware of, the true meaning of one's "waking dreams."
The Rainbows are believed to assist one in knowing what is appropriate to focus on manifesting.
Rainbow crystals are used during meditation and divination.
They remind us to enjoy and appreciate living in the present moment.
They are associated with the Third Eye.
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 rs". 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 the energetic quality of a quartz crystal, and in fact, inclusions and impurities can make the crystal much more energetic, and increase its ability to store and 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, those impurities will change the frequency that the crystal oscillates/vibrates at.
Quartz in any form is a powerful stone. 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 has long been used to direct and amplify thoughts and intentions. All thoughts are a form of energy and strong intentions will shape and affect subtle energies. Because of this, quartz can be 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 simply another form: an energy pattern. Quartz may be held directly on the third eye to increase clairvoyance abilities: help with the clarity of a vision.
Indigenous Healers. Medicine people and other crystal healers use quartz to perceive and communicate with Higher Beings, other realms, in dream work, for scrying or crystal gazing, perceiving Devas (Nature Spirits) and other kinds of spirits.
In the right hands, Quartz may be used to dispel and clear negative energies. For example, Tabular or 'flat' quartz is used to protect against harmful vibrations and even a directed psychic attack. It absorbs the dark energy and must be cleared regularly.
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.
Clear 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.
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.
