XL Himalayan Quartz CRYSTAL SKULL - Shimmery rainbows! Highly energetic!
This is an EXTRA LARGE Quartz Crystal Skull. The stone itself is Himalayan Quartz, from the Himalayan Mountains near Tibet, and very energetic! I waited over 8 years to get more Himalayan Quartz skulls, and this carving style is very nice. It's a more detailed carving style, and 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! Himalayan Quartz is some of the most energetic Quartz in the world, because of the geological activity in that part of the world. Himalayan Quartz carved into a skull is VERY difficult to find!
This particular crystal has interesting "windows" or clearer crystal in/around the face, as well as very intricate patterns/inclusions all throughout. Plus, quite a few shimmery areas rainbows in it that become visible from different angles. Especially nice in bright light!
There are some tiny organic spots here and there. They can resemble pinpricks, tiny indents/notches, linear indents, or fine lines on the surface of the stone. All of these organic areas come from inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was carved and polished. It doesn't 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 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.
It weighs about 13.5oz and measures approx. 80mm (3 1/8" inches) long X 60mm (2 3/8" inches) tall. Code031718-18093
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.
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.
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. 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.
