This is a life-size Himalayan Quartz Crystal Skull! Approximately the size of a human child. Shown next to a 355ml/12oz soda can for size comparison. This is the most popular size, and one of the most difficult to come by. I never have many. The stone itself is Himalayan, from the Himalaya Mountains near the Nepal/Tibet border, and very energetic. Himalayan Quartz is also some of the most energetic in the world because of the seismic activity in the mountain range, and how those mountains were created over 40 million years ago. (Scientists have found that the range formed from the collision of two major tectonic plates - the Indian Plate and Eurasian Plate.)
It has intricate patterns/inclusions, including a LOT of shimmery areas and rainbows throughout that catch the light as you move the stone around in your hands. Plus, Golden Healer Hematite (golden orange/yellow) around the right side of the head, and the left side of the jaw towards the back. The inclusions/formations in this one are very interesting. The layered look of the shimmery rainbows, the large "planes" visible through the back of the head, and an almost silky glow that seems to appear in certain lights.
It weighs about 5lbs 9.4oz / 2.536kgs and measures approximately 6 7/8" inches long X about 4" inches wide X just over 4 1/2" inches tall. Code-020523-20693
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. Including in/around the jawline, top of the head, etc. ALL inclusions present come form 100% natural formations in the crystal. I inspect each crystal very carefully before photographing it, and always pick by energy first. All of our Himalayan Quartz skulls have small organic spots on the surface from inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was shaped and polished. They can resemble pinpricks / tiny indents, fine lines, or shallow notches. 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!)
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.
Himalayan Quartz has all of the properties of normal quartz, but it vibrates at a higher octave; Himalayan Quartz is some of the most intensely energetic quartz in the world. It has been used for millennia to establish a strong, clear connection to your High Self and your Guides, and to meditate on the oneness of all life. It is said to bring clarity of thought and purpose. Himalayan quartz is considered a great support to let go of fear, and open your heart.
These crystals carry the vibration of the many shamanic and spiritual healers who have lived in this area of the world, or traveled there, to collect these precious crystals and stones, to use in their ceremonial, spiritual healing practices. For the most part, these crystals are still reverently collected by hand, and then carried down the mountains, on the backs of devoted locals. Himalayan quartz is harder and harder to get, every year.
These crystals relate primarily to the Crown and Third Eye Chakras, but they can be used with all of the Chakras.
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.
Hematite (sometimes spelled Hemetite). Hematite is a must for anyone interested in working with crystals and stones. It is said to assist in grounding and calming and in manifesting Divine Light in your life. It deflects and dissolves negative energies.
Hematite is said to help one to 'sort things out' and can be used for memory enhancement, original thinking and technical knowledge. Hematite, especially in its natural crystalline form, is traditionally thought to bring peace, self-control and inner happiness.
It is a calming energy and is said to attract "kind" love and act as a stabilizing force.
In Crystal Healing, it is used to calm the nerves, for insomnia, and to align the spine and speed the mending of broken bones. Some Indigenous healers have used it with blood disorders. Hematite is associated with the root (base) Chakra.
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."
Crystal skulls are tools of awareness and they can:

People have asked me about how I clear my stones. You can read my BLOG entries on this site about working with crystals and skulls for details. Every one of the skulls and stones that I list has been with Synergy and is fully charged with the energy - after all - that's the whole point of me offering them to the public!
