This crystal has been charged with subtle energy from the Ancient Crystal Skull known as SYNERGY.
This is a carved AGATE Hippo / Hippopotamus totem. This particular piece of Agate has a really cool golden translucence that shows up in bright light. Sometimes around the edges, sometimes all throughout. It depends on the kind of light (natural vs. indoor), and the background it is held against (light vs. dark). It has subtle, yet fascinating, inclusions / formations inside. Plus, tiny reddish orange Dendritic inclusions running around the center of the body, and down into the left front leg. They look like small spots or tiny plant-life, but are actually made up of Iron in this case. A very interesting stone! Hard to accurately capture in photos. Much nicer 'in person' - I guarantee it.
It may have a few tiny organic spots here and there from inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was polished. ALL inclusions are 100% natural parts of the stone. Check out how it works with subtle energies below.
It weighs about 1oz and measures approx. just under 1 3/4" inches long X 7/8" inch tall. Code3073
As a totem animal, the Hippopotamus is strongly connected to the water, considered to be the ancient realm of birth. It is associated with power, imagination, and healing. The Hippopotamus is a link between the physical world and the spiritual world, assisting us with lucid dreaming or awakening our higher senses. The Hippopotamus teaches us how to walk through all worlds with strength.
All forms of Agate are said to assist with protection, (especially of children) and to impart courage and increase energy levels in bursts, and so may be used when a big ‘push’ is needed. Agate also enhances creativity and stimulates the intellect. It has been used by student and artists. Agate is considered a stone that brings good luck and is very calming and soothing. It helps ground your energy. Agate may increase self-confidence and lessen feelings of envy by grounding the emotions. Agates of all varieties are the most well known stones for balancing the subtle energies. Pick the stone by what you are strongly attracted to! In Crystal Healing, it's traditional to pick favorite stones that may then be used to enhance the body's natural healing ability. it is a stone of harmony, and by bringing oneself into harmony it is thought to be able to enhance healing. The predominate colors in individual stones indicate which Chakras they are associated with.
Dendritic inclusions combine the many useful qualities of the base stone with Manganese (black) and/or Iron (reddish orange/brown), which is the actual mineral content of the "plant life"-like inclusions. It facilitates a harmonious relationship with Mother Earth, and a deeper connection with nature, including the nature spirits. It is also used for facilitating Past Life recall and used to open and activate the third eye.
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."

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!
