This incredible crystal is from a new find (2020) from the shaman's dream mine in minas gerais, brazil. This particular new pocket yielded a beautiful variation of the classic shaman's dream quartz, this time with beautiful phantom inclusions.
Shaman's dream quartz is a name given to extremely high-grade quartz found in the minas gerais area of brazil, that contain incredible inner landscapes, made from natural inclusions of lodolite, green chlorite, kaolinite, and other natural earth elements. The combination of these elements create a powerful healing energy and and stunning inner landscapes that often look like mossy underwater gardens. These crystals are powerful "anchors" during shamanic journey work, and facilitate connections to both nature spirits and angelic entities.The mine that produced these has recently closed so they are becoming scarcer and scarcer to find at this quality. This is a truly beautiful larger sized shaman's dream quartz crystal in a unique formation with lovely inclusions throughout.
The quartz itself is very clear with a mild smokiness to it, and within the crystal can be found a variety of inclusions like white kaolinite, pinkish lodolite and pale green chlorite. In this particular crystal, these inclusions present as "phantoms" sitting within the main facet area of the two main crystals of this cluster formation. There's a really cool "pocket" in the middle of this formation where, perhaps, another crystal grew at one time. But i keep envisioning someone storing a smaller crystal in here, maybe to combine energies with this piece. The bottom is flat, so this piece sits really nicely for display.There is a very minor chip to the back main facet of the primary crystal just below the termination and it very slightly infringes on the termination (see photo 10). Overall this is a great and very nicely sized piece, lovely visual appeal and precious energy. Approx 2" t x 4.75" w x 3 d. The name "shaman's dream" comes from the fact that these crystals are powerful facilitators of shamanic healing work and shamanic journeying, due to the combination of natural elements within. Green chlorite is a powerful purifier that is one of the mineral kingdom's strongest and deepest heart healers. It is known as a regeneration crystal, used to connect with high vibrational energies and entities, allowing one to vibrate in harmony with the earth as well as the angelic realms. Lodolite is a type of quartz with unique inclusions of many possible colors and types, and is often the element of shaman's dream crystals that give them the look of gardens, landscapes or underwater scenes. In this way, it gives us both a physical and energetic view into other worlds. Gazing into this stone is said to bring about a cosmic shift of consciousness, harmonizing the higher vibrational energies of the aura/light body.
It is a powerful journeying stone on its own, as well. While both of these elements provide a path to other realms, they do so by also grounding the spirit and providing an anchor in the natural world so we may journey safely. Phantom crystals occur when another mineral settles on the main crystal itself. The crystal begins to grow again, around the mineral deposit, leaving the appearance of a ghost-like "phantom" inside. The phantoms within a crystal provide an indication of the experiences, and the transformations, which the crystal has encountered during its evolution.
The phantom crystal has experienced numerous lifetimes of learning and being, while continuing in the same physical configuration. This crystal is a reminder that we, too, can grow beyond our expectations, and are protected during times of new growth. The crystal represents the many phases and the many types of life which may be experienced during ones lifetime. The phantom crystal can assist in connecting with the higher realms of knowledge within the records of ones progression through past lives.
In addition, it will provide further energy in healing the emotional and physical situations which may be of consequence to the knowledge gained from this regression. The phantom can be used to assist in meeting and communicating with our personal spiritual guide. It is one of the earth stones and symbolizes universal awareness and can be used for redemption and cleansing of the earth.
This item is made of green chlorite and kaolinte, quartz, shamans dream quartz.
