Oh my gosh, I got the most beautiful crystal ever from Jennie at LadyGraniteJen over at Etsy! She contacted me a week or two ago and asked if I'd be willing to trade my print "The Angel's Way" for her amethyst spirit quart crystal. I said oh heck yeah!
It's about 3" tall or so, I haven't measured it, but it's as big as the palm of my hand and fits there like it was made for me! When I opened the package, the first thing I saw was this iridescent bubble wrap, and went ooo, purty. Then when I unwrapped the crystal, I could only bring myself to glance at it for a second because it was so beautiful! I squeezed my eyes shut and held it away while waves, and I mean HUGE waves of goosebumps went coursing through my whole body, and I was saying "Oh my Gawd" over and over again in a high squeaky voice.
So I looked at it again, and could only do a glance before I had to look away and let the goosebumps surge and squeals of excitement spew forth. The dogs were all sitting around staring at me and looking at each other like they were wondering if they should do something about my fit. Finally, I was able to stop and gaze at it, hold it, and feel it's totally amazing energy!! It's strong but smooth, I love it! I got goosebumps for several hours! Wow! I hold it a lot and the energy just resonates perfectly and feels like exactly what I need.
I've always had an affinity with rocks and crystals, but I've never had a reaction quite like this one. This crystal wanted to work with me (at least for awhile) and Jennie, bless her heart, was generous enough to let go of it. She had lived with this crystal for about a year and a half before being compelled to pass it along to me. Thank you Jennie!
Check out her Etsy Shop if you get a chance, she makes some lovely jewelry with beautiful stones. Here's a blue quartz necklace with amethyst and citrine beads that's really nice. Click on the image to go to the lisitng.
My boyfriend is also a rock and crystal person and he's very drawn to it as well. I see him looking at it and sometimes holding it every so often. When I read about the properties of an amethyst spirit quartz, I understood why we're both so drawn to it.
Here's a little information about the properties of an amethyst spirit crystal.
Spirit Quartz carries the vibration of universal love. It may assist you to let go of issues you have been holding onto... and forgive both yourself and the other person.
They have the ability to align the lower self with the higher spiritual self... and manifest into your life those spiritual attributes. These are stones that will assist you with your ascension process... and they may activate the Lightbody.
Each of the different colors will resonate strongly with different chakras and this is useful as you may choose which area spiritually you wish to work on. All types are highly spiritual... but each has its own specific vibration.
Nice, huh! I did a couple of energy art images from the photo of this crystal. I'm not done, I'm still playing around with capturing the essence of its energy but here's a couple of them.
This one retains more of the visual elements of the crystal itself with some energetic imprints showing through. I like the colors, very sixth and seventh chakra.
This one is more energetic in nature. I like the movement and the spiral, the light source and the feeling of an emotional landscape in the background but the color isn't right, plus it's too dark. It reminds me of the crystal healing room in Atlantis. I say that as if I've been there or something, lol. (Maybe I have...in another life!)
Thank you again Jenny! For you to initiate sending me the perfect crystal at the perfect time shows a true connection between us!
Well I'm off! Later!
