Amethyst Scepter with Calcite
This striking, translucent, deep purple 2.55 inch long Brazilian Amethyst Scepter with Calcite, weighing 75 grams or 2.65 oz., exhibits the biomorphic form consistent with the formation of scepter wands. You can see that the crystal resembles a flower stalk.
This very rare & hard to find Brazilian amethyst scepter is a collector's item. These scepters are of exceptional quality & are very rare in nature, especially one this well formed, with a clear stem with the bulbous 'scepter' formation at the top, forming a termination tip. Truly a Lightworker's power tool, fit for royalty!
There are 200-300 locations around the world where quartz crystal scepters form naturally. A scepter crystal is a rare type of crystal formation in which the main crystal formed around a pre-existing crystal rod, resulting in a unique geological geometry.
The original crystal rod formed over vast periods of geological time and then, conditions changed, and became more favorable to crystal growth. Perhaps the crystal was surrounded by a solution of super-saturated silica, for instance, triggering a rapid growth spurt.
Mineralogists suggest that rapid growth favors the formation of a crystal’s point rather than its faces because points are composed primarily of edges, and during rapid crystalline growth edges and points generate a higher electrical charge than the rest of the crystal, and this higher electrical charge attracts silica molecules, which then form an engorged “head”, “knob”, or “point” around the pre-existing crystal rod, which acts as a “handle” for the new crystal scepter.
In any case, there is no doubt that all scepter crystals had a “troubled childhood” which typically involved two-stages of crystallization, and oftentimes earthquake shocks, multiple freeze-thaw cycles and severe transformations in the chemical composition of the pockets within which crystals form and grow.
Scepter crystals were traditionally used by shamanic practitioners, high priests and high priestesses in various cultures around the world for healing and to connect to Higher Worlds.
They are considered by lightworkers to be powerful amplifers of energy, which can transmit as much energy as other quartz crystals many times their size.
Properties of Calcite
Calcite is named from the Greek chalix meaning Lime and has the chemistry: CaCO3 Calcium Carbonate. It belongs to the mineral class Carbonates, Calcite group. Calcite is one of the most common minerals on earth and is approximately 4% by weight of the Earth's crust. It forms in a variety of geological environments and in all three of the major rock classification types: Sedimentary as oolitic, fossiliferous and massive limestones, Metamorphic changing from Limestone to Marble through heat and pressure and Igneous as Carbonatite. In some cases, Calcite may be as much as 99% of the component minerals! What is extraordinary about Calcite is its amazing diversity of habit, and colour that may be white, colourless, yellow, orange, blue, pink, red, brown, green, black or grey.
Calcite is the main mineral component in the cave formations of stalactites and stalagmites and other variants. Water, rich in Calcite goes into a dry cavern and begins the slow process of evaporation, which precipitates the Calcite.
In general, Calcite speeds up spiritual development. It brings emotional stability, consistency and self-trust. It increases the ability to overcome challenges. It encourages the transformation of ideas into action by amplifying energy, mastery and success. Calcite stimulates the metabolism and benefits the immune system and the heart. It enhances growth in children. It alleviates skin and intestinal conditions and encourages healing of tissue and bone.
Properties of Amethyst
Amethyst is the gemstone variety of quartz, produced by the presence of manganese and hematite in clear quartz crystal. Increments of iron (hematite) within the crystal as it formed vary the color of the amethyst, which can range from pale lilac to deep purple. Amethyst has been popular with royalty, sages, mystics and magicians for centuries.
“Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty,” according to the International Colored Gemstone Association.
“Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst was able to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence,” according to the ICGA website.
“Because amethyst was thought to encourage celibacy and symbolize piety, amethyst was very important in the ornamentation of Catholic and other churches in the Middle Ages. It was, in particular, considered to be the stone of bishops and they still often wear amethyst rings,” continues the ICGA. “In Tibet, amethyst is considered to be sacred to Buddha and rosaries are often fashioned from it.”
Amethyst is said to enhance spirituality, raise the vibrational level of the holder, cleanse the astral, etheric and physical bodies, and produce a peaceful, tranquil state of mind.
The color violet is associated with the crown chakra in the Western chakra system, and so this extremely bright violet amethyst is said by crystal healers to activate and energize the crown chakra, connecting the bearer to Higher Mind, Higher Realms and inner spiritual guidance from extremely elevated and reliable Sources.
In the pantheon of modern day New Age Guides and Teachers, the Count de Saint Germain is called “The World Teacher” and “The Master of the Violet Ray” and is thought to communicate mind-to-mind with many, many students around the world.
Stones with a violet or purple hue, and especially amethyst, are associated with St. Germain, and resonate with the energy signature of the Violet Flame.
There is thought to be a large contingent of his students alive today in the United States, the center of modern Empire, just as Paris was the center of European Empire at the time of St. Germain.
Many New Age students of St. Germain utilize crystals and gemstones in their spiritual practice, for healing and in meditation, in a modern alchemical quest for Higher Self, Higher Mind and Higher Purpose. Modern New Age practice encompasses a belief in the theory of karma and reincarnation. The belief in reincarnation has its roots in the Hindu and Egyptian Mystery School traditions, and is fundamental to the Greek Mystery School Tradition of the pre-Socratic philosophers.
New Age students of the Ancient Wisdom Teachings often utilize crystals and gemstones, along with meditation techniques, Reiki and past life regression therapy to access memories of past lives, and to release the detrimental patterns of behavior, negative emotions and outmoded mental maps of the world imprinted in our cells, our hearts, our minds and our karma from traumas experienced aeons ago.
Many of these modern acolytes of the Great Alchemist utilize crystals and gemstones thought to resonate with the energy vibration of the Violet Ray, which is said to be used under the guidance of St. Germain for purification and to raise the kundalini energy in a quest for Unity Consciousness. Such crystals and gems include especially amethyst, that violet colored form of quartz once so favored by the Pope and Bishops of the Catholic Church.
According to Melody’s fine book Love is in the Earth, amethyst “can be used to protect against psychic attacks; the energy of the attack being transmitted to the transmitted to the universe after its transformation into a positive, loving energy.
Amethyst is classically the stone of sobriety, purity and chastity and would be an excellent stone for those with tendencies toward addictive behavior, or for those spiritual seekers intent upon transformation through the progressive purification of mind, body and aura.
