AMPHIBOLE QUARTZ: Amphibole Quartz or Angel Phantom Quartz is a rare variety of Quartz with inclusions of various minerals that may include Riebeckite, Tremolite, Winchite, Hornblende, Richterite, Limonite, Hematite, Kaolinite, Lithium, and Actinolite. Chlorite can also be seen in some of them.
Amphibole Quartz is also known by the names Red Rabbit Quartz in Asia, and Angel Phantom Quartz over the rest of the world. This is due to the inclusions looking like Angel Wings. It is no coincidence that these crystals have a close link with the angelic realm.
This unusual crystal connects to both the sixth chakra and the crown chakra. Its high frequency expands consciousness and awakens the vibrations of the angelic dimensions. Using one of these crystals will assist in your abilities to receive guidance form spirit guides and teachers, and your angelic helpers.
Amphibole Quartz crystals are multi-talented with having so many inclusions threaded in and throughout them. These crystals bring peace, harmony and serenity through surety. They breed a strong sense of confidence within oneself – confidence in ones decisions, confidence to take on the unknown and new projects.
Use this crystal while meditating to keep centered to receive insights and guidance. It may also help you to uncover deeply hidden emotion patterns from childhood traumas and past lives that you may have brought forward into this life to resolve and heal. Healing past life trauma will enable you to move forward more easily with your dreams and aspirations.
Phantoms always speak to us of past lives and this particular specimen is no exception. The more phantoming seen in the quartz crystal, the more effective it will be for working with past lives.
Sleeping with an Amphibole Quartz will calm the inner voices that may trouble you causing worry or stress. Try keeping one by your bedside to eliminate insomnia and restlessness. Amphibole Quartz is an exceptional crystal to use for lucid dreaming. Place the crystal beside your bed head or under your pillow and prepare to have peaceful, restful sleep with very informative dreams.
One of the things that makes this quartz so incredible is the combination of the many different minerals contained within this unique type of quartz. The red Hematite keeps one grounded while providing the raw energy and drive to move forward – no matter what obstacles may be thrown up in your path. The yellow Limonite radiates self worth, joy and provides an abundance of personal energy that bursts forth – inspiring both the self and others around you. The pink Lithium provides the energy of Love, empathy for others – and keeps one focused on the all important core values of giving, integrity and selfless light work for the betterment of all. The Kaolinite channels in Crown Chakra energy providing inspiration and connection with the Angelic realm – funneling pure white light into everything that one does.
AMBER COLOR INFORMATION: Amber comes in many different colors and in many different shades. This is another very fascinating fact about this natural gemstone. Up until today there are more than 250 different shades and 7 main colors of Amber identified. They vary from yellow to orange, to black, and even white. Green and blue colors are also distinguished; however they tend to be very rare.
There are two main factors, which are known to influence Amber’s color. One of these factors is bubble inclusions that are found in this natural resin. The main explanation why these bubbles affect color of Amber is because they block light that goes through this gemstone. These small disturbances in lighting is what cause Amber to form in different colors. The second main factor that determines color of this natural resin is the tree source. Research on fossil resin indicates that some colors are found only in certain trees.
WHERE DOES AMBER COMES FROM:
The main supply of high-quality amber comes from the Baltic countries in Northern Europe (there is a famous amber museum in Palanga, Lithuania, that I missed when I was there). The Dominican Republic is also a good source of amber gemstone, especially the rare and highly prized blue amber. Amber is also found in Britain, Poland, Russia, Italy, and Germany.
AMBER HEALING PROPERTIES:
While often considered a gemstone, the glowing, warm amber is not a stone, but a fossilized resin from ancient evergreen trees. The oldest amber discovered on Earth is about 320 million years old. Imagine the incredibly powerful energy this amber contains! Amber is one of the world’s oldest and most coveted treasures, a “Gold of the Sea” intrinsically formed by light and life, preserved by time and washed upon the shores for humanity, a talisman of beauty, protection and renewal. It has been portrayed as drops of the sun, tears of the gods, hardened honey, and sunlight solidified, and is as desired today as it was in the most ancient cultures, utilized as far back as the Stone Age for its pleasing warmth of color, value in adornment, and its magical and medicinal properties.
Amber belongs to a small class of organic gems, neither a crystal nor a mineral, but a biological product of nature, a protective resin that oozed from living trees in dense, prehistoric forests and fossilized over millions of years. It is highly prized in the metaphysical world for its energetic and healing properties, and for the marvelous Life Force it carries. Amber holds a strong connection to the sun and earth, as well as the once living insects, organisms and plant matter that are forever suspended within its golden structure. It attunes to ancient wisdom and can be a powerful tool for past life recall, or for stimulating the remembrance of genetic lessons and experiences passed down from one’s ancestors. It is useful for clearing family patterns, and initiating one’s prerogative of choice.
Amber is a natural purifier, esteemed for its ability to draw pain and dis-ease from the physical body, as well as the mind and spirit, by absorbing negative or stagnant energies and transforming them into clear, positive energy. This stimulates the body’s own mechanisms to heal itself. It increases vitality and aids tissue regeneration. Amber is ideal for cleansing and reactivating the chakras, particularly the Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras, and is an excellent tool for clearing the environment in which it rests. It emits a bright, soothing energy conducive to health and well-being, and is marvelous for convalescence, ameliorating depression, or working through the grieving process. Amber also provides a protective shield against negative energies and may be called upon to remove toxicity from one’s life or relationships.
Amber have marvelous metaphysical properties for psychic protection. It is a powerful healer that gives the person who wears it a lovely sense of health and healing. Amber helps to balance the emotions, clear the mind and release negative energy. It aids manifestation, eases stress by clearing phobias and fears, and it is a lovely warm stone to wear.
The most obvious quality of amber is its old, (very old!) energy. With it comes the accumulated wisdom of the earth and its natural kingdom. You can often see little insects trapped in the amber while it started as a tree resin; this gives the amber stone quite powerful magical properties.
AMBER PHYSICAL HEALING:
Because of its electrostatic influence, Amber is considered to be one of the most effective energetic healing substances, drawing off toxins, pain, and disease from the body and stimulating the immune system and the body’s other natural healing mechanisms to rebalance and heal itself. Amber may be placed directly on a wound or over the internal organs to promote healing, or at the thymus gland to restore balance to the entire system.
Amber is excellent for alleviating stress, depression or anxiety, and increasing overall vitality and energy levels. It can stimulate sluggish digestion, and is considered beneficial in treatments for the kidneys, bladder, spleen, liver, and gallbladder. Amber is particularly effective in treating goiter and disorders of the throat, and may be used to relieve joint pain, rheumatism, toothache and teething in infants (do not place in mouth), as well as bronchial issues, especially whooping cough.
AMBER EMOTIONAL HEALING:
Amber heals and supports the emotional body by drawing off the negative energies that steal one’s optimism and drive for life, and replaces them with an empowering frequency conducive to positive change. It is ideal for those battling suicidal tendencies, addictions, or who struggle with depression, anxiety or seasonal affective disorder to see light at the end of the tunnel. Amber helps remove the obstacles we place in our own way, as well as deflecting the negative energies of others. It lends the courage to set boundaries with friends, colleagues or family, and to recognize it is safe to be powerful in loving ways.
Bringing balance and stability to one’s life, Amber encourages patience and flexibility. Its warm, bright energy promotes cheerfulness and trust, and strengthens the belief in oneself. Amber stimulates the intellect, improves short-term memory, and enhances the understanding of messages from one’s past to assist in decision-making and moving forward in life. It is a great tool for transmuting dreams into reality.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Copal or Copalite is the term given to organic resins that are not old enough (i.e. younger than 100,000 years) to have fossilized and hardened sufficiently to become Amber.
Amber is often imitated by plastics, colored glasses and some modern tree resins. True Ambers have a low specific gravity (amber can float on salt water) and inclusions can distinguish it from plastics and glasses.
AURALITE 23?: Update coming soon
Auralite 23 stones themselves are organized layers of phantom chevrons consisting of 3 base quartz species: Citrine, Amethyst, and an exceptional form of metamict green quartz.
Reportedly, Auralite 23 consists of different minerals including:
CACOXENITE: Known as a Stone of Ascension, Cacoxenite is believed to raise the spiritual awareness of the human race and to provide a loving and ethereal connection between all of the universe. It encourages a conscious awareness of the significance in random events to guide us on the right path, and in sensing the essence of the Creator in the beauty of nature and the kindness of people.
Cacoxenite is an ascension stone, heightening spiritual awareness through meditation and dream work, and even unconsciously by simply wearing or carrying a crystal bearing this mineral. Its energy is welcoming, relaying the message that everyone carries a Divine spark and may connect with the Creator, as well as one’s guides, guardian spirits and other higher beings, at any time to receive healing and guidance.
Cacoxentie within Amethyst is particularly regenerative, not only for reprogramming the body’s cells to continually renew themselves, but also for revitalizing the mind. The inclusion of Cacoxenite initiates a higher level of creativity, clearing the Third Eye and Crown Chakras of conventional thought and limitations, and bringing new, “never before thought of” ideas and innovations to humanity.
Cacoxenite is a major mineral in the Super Seven crystal, also known as Melody Stone or Sacred Seven. Cacoxenite, together with Amethyst, Smokey Quartz, Clear Quartz with Rutile, Goethite, and Lepidocrocite combine their energies together in one powerful stone, said to be shifting the vibratory level of the planet and everything on it. It activates all of the chakras and subtle bodies, as well as other crystals near it, and provides immense guidance and support for spiritual gifts and metaphysical works of all kinds. It instills peace and a sense of communal safety and interconnection.
Cacoxenite is one of those rare ingredients that make something good even better. It manifests as beautiful inclusions within a host crystal, usually Amethyst or Quartz, and forms as radiated tufts or strands of yellow, gold or earthy brown. Its presence expands the properties already emanating from the host stone, and adds its own remarkable dimension of spiritual evolution and connection.
Cacoxenite is a popular and highly regarded “stone of ascension” used during countless planetary alignments and world meditations, and to heighten the effect of full or new moon rituals. Its high vibrational properties increase spiritual awareness on all levels and transfers healing energy to the Earth.
Cacoxenite is a mineral for bringing good to one’s life. It encourages one to see the positive, beneficial and constructive forces in all events and situations, and to use discretion based on wisdom and discernment. Cacoxenite promotes the expansion of the Crown and Third Eye Chakras for connecting the physical with the spiritual realms. Its vibration also helps align the Third Chakra, the will center, with Divine Will in order to cleanse the energy systems of any negative attachments keeping one from moving forward.
SUPER SEVEN: TO BE UPDATED
This crystal stimulates the intellect, awakening the development of psychic and intuitive abilities, and brings inner vision into alignment with spiritual guidance. It may be used for the enhancement of dreams, entering a meditative or channeling state, and enables out of body journeys to take place safely. Azurite is beneficial in exploring past or alternate lives, and its ability to clear the Throat Chakra allows for precise verbalization recalled from these experiences.
Azurite tempers the mind; it releases stress and confusion, and alleviates worry, indecision, and thoughts that linger in the back of the consciousness. To restore balance and control over emotions and reactions, simply hold the crystal and ask to have the troublesome thoughts evaporate. It is a rubbing stone that prefers to be touched to release its energies, so when wearing or carrying Azurite, remember to rub it often.
PHYSICALLY: Azurite aids circulation and oxygenating the blood, and works at a cellular level to restore any blockage or damage to the brain. This is a good stone for Alzheimer’s, dementia and other degenerative brain-related disorders, as well as aging. Azurite may also soothe migraines, lessen tinnitus, and balance vertigo. It is also reported to improve reflex actions.
