Enchanted Crystal of the Month: Brazilian Elestial Quartz
Our specimen this month is Brazilian Elestial Quartz.
Here is our amethyst wrapped in bubble wrap before its unboxing. Also photographed is our included bonus back of mini specimens.
Brazilian Elestial Quartz
This is one of those specimens that is much better in person than in photographs. It is heavy and solid and has some really interesting inclusions and shiny panes. Created by chaos, these beauties were unable to fully terminate, meaning there are these super interesting flat panes but no real points to speak of. They have fascinating clouds and inclusions that speak to the drama that was going on underground when they were born. This really interesting crystal makes a nice addition to my other pieces of quartz and brings an entirely new look to its more polished friends.
Enchanted Crystal always sends bonus crystals or minerals in a small bag as well.
I had never heard of this stone, so I had to do a little research. It is actually a round form of obsidian and is also called “Apache Tears”, a reference to a battle between a small group of Apache and US Calvarymen in Superior, AZ in the 1870s. When the Apache realized defeat was imminent, they rode their horses off a cliff to avoid being captured or killed. When their loved ones heard of their deaths, their tears turned into these stones. While I love legends like this and find they add so much to the lore of stones and minerals, this one is really very sad.
Much like the similarly sunny-hued carnelian, orange calcite is an amplifying stone. It is also a stone connected to my own personal star sign, Leo. I love how cheerful the color is.
I really love these little tiny included points! They have these really interesting green, brown, and orange inclusions, and each one is unique and lovely. Quartz is one of my favorite crystals because it comes in so many different colors and shapes. It also amplifies its surroundings, so use it to power up your other stones or hold it during your daily meditations.
Verdict: Enchanted Crystal is one of my favorite subscriptions because it is always so educational and informative. They also send along really unusual collector’s pieces for someone like me who appreciates the odd and beautiful. I love my new piece of quartz and I have nothing like it in my entire collection! I also always enjoy the bonus minerals, because they are often new to me and then I have some fun doing research on them.
