This is a Turquoise Howlite crystal skull. It has a beautiful and vivid blue coloring with black marbling all throughout. There are a few pinprick tiny organic spots from inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was polished. These areas are a natural part of the stone, not defects. Check out how it works with subtle energies below.
Please note! - After some debate, and talking to several stone carvers, I had a geologist take a look at this material back in early May, 2010. Different carvers have called this "Chinese Turquoise" or "Howlite Turquoise". The geologist says it is natural Howlite that has been dyed somehow to produce the vivid blue coloring. The stone itself is a natural mineral from the Earth, however the color is from being dyed in a man-made process. I don't know the precise details of the process, but the finished product is quite beautiful. I picked this piece first and foremost because of its nice energy, as I do with all of my stones.
It weighs about 1.6oz and measures approximately 49mm (1 7/8" inches) long X 31mm (1 3/16" inches) tall. Code-20623
Turquoise Howlite, AKA Turquonite, is Howlite that is dyed blue to resemble turquoise, and is often falsely sold as Turquoise.
It balances and evens out mood fluctuations and brings inner peace.
Because the stone is actually Howlite, it has the properties of Howlite.
Howlite aids in the calm communication of emotions to others. It is a deeply calming energy, excellent for reducing stress and anxiety.
It is also used as an aid to creativity and for boosting memory retention and is used to dispel selfishness.
In Crystal Healing, it is used for calcium loss, bone and teeth, as well as leg cramps.
It is associated with the Root Chakra but may also be used on various 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.
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."
