This magnificent 2.5 inch high Angel Phantom Quartz Amphibole Generator, weighing 72 grams, exhibits a beautifully formed phantom formation composed of multiple layers of patterned reddish brown, ochre, gray and whitish mineral inclusions enclosed in water clear quartz. Truly a rare find and a Lightworker's power tool!
This Amphibole quartz point comes from a remote location in Bahia, Brazil. Amphibole quartz has long been known among mineralogists and rockhounds as a desirable, unusual collector's item, and has recently come to the attention of metaphysical crystal collectors and Lightworkers because of its rich blend of mineral inclusions, which give it a unique set of energetic properties.This Phantom Point contains inclusions of such metaphysically potent minerals as Limonite, Kaolinite, Hematite, and Lithium.
The dazzling combination of metaphysically potent minerals found in this specimen of amphibole strengthens the will, quiets the mind, relaxes the body, activates the Higher Mind and connects the bearer to the Divine Wisdom found in angelic realms while helping to ground and center us at the same time. Amphibole is useful for connecting to the higher-self, for astral travel, lucid dreaming, and even interdimensional communication.
Because Amphibole Angel Phantom Quartz stimulates the third eye and crown chakras, it is considered to be useful for connecting to the higher-self, for astral travel, to promote lucid dreaming and to facilitate interdimensional communication.
Angel Phantom Quartz also stimulates the root chakra, associated with the colors black and red in the Western chakra system, so this stone grounds the bearer while creating a safe energetic space in which to explore subtle energy realms in deep meditation or energy and crystal healing sessions.
Properties of Angel Phantom Quartz
Amphibole quartz is also known as "Angel Phantom Quartz", and contains a variety of mineral inclusions including Limonite, Kaolinite, Hematite and often Lithium.
Limonite, also known as Lemon Rock, is a form of hydrated iron oxide. Commonly occurring as a yellowish-brown amorphous substance, limonite is mined for use as iron ore.
Limonite is known by metaphysical rockhounds as a stone that promotes ease and grace, stability and comfort. Limonite is also said to provide mental protection, shielding the bearer from detrimental thought forms, muddy thinking and psychic attack. Limonite has been used in treatment of disorders of the liver.
Kaolinite is a soft, earthy, usually white clay mineral sometimes offering a rust appearance caused by iron oxide.
Kaolinite has been used to soothe an upset stomach, and was for many years the active ingredient in the over-the-counter anti-diarrehal medicine Kaopectate.
Crystal healers have used kaolinite to aid in situations where accelerated spiritual progress has taxed an individual's ability to process, digest and transform mental, emotional and karmic issues in life. Kaolinite provides for a strengthening of the bearer's will forces as well, enabling the individual to progress along the path of Spirit more smoothly as a result. Kaolinite has also been used to treat digestive disorders and to clarify, tonify and smooth the skin.
Hematite is the most important form of iron ore, occurring as heavy, fragile, opaque granular masses, often with a ruddy red hue. Hematite crystallizes as grey-black to reddish colored rhombohedral and tabular crystals, rosettes and in a variety of more unique formations, all with a metallic luster.
Hematite is a cooling stone, calming the mind and dispelling heat from the physical body. The electromagnetic qualities of hematite are useful for balancing the energy meridians and to equilibrate the interface between the etheric body and the physical nervous system.
Hematite transforms negativity into love, harmonizes and balances yin-yang energy within the energy body, and stimulates the desire for peace in one's life. Hematite promotes a grounded meditative state very helpful to those seeking to unite heaven and earth within themselves.
Esoteric Christianity makes a link between hematite and Archangel Michael, and a quartz crystal containing hematite can provide the bearer with a powerful connection to Michael, providing access to the Archangel's loving wisdom and power to dissolve illusion through the activity of his famous sword, the sword of Ultimate Truth. During the Libran lunar month in the northern hemisphere, the Draconid meteor showers will be visible. At this time of year, when sensational meteor showers, largely composed of iron, traditionally streak across the night sky, Esoteric Christian philosopher Rudolph Steiner’s clairvoyant vision saw the traditional flashing iron sword of Michael.
The meteoric sword of Michael was thought to cleanse the Earth’s atmosphere of summer's sulfurous influences, allowing the Higher Self to emerge and guide the initiate along the path of Spirit toward the birth of the Inner Christ Light, an event which takes place in December, during the festival of Christmas.

The lithium in this beautiful specimen is a soft silvery-white metal found as a trace element in many types of minerals, including spodumene, petalite, lepidolite, kunzite, and quartz crystals. Lithium salts are used medically to treat both mania and depression.
Lithium Quartz brings emotional peace, stress release, and relaxation. A powerful, yet gentle healer, Lithium Quartz balances the brain and the emotions. Lithium Quartz uplifts the mental and emotional bodies, and gently moves repressed anger and grief to the surface for healing. Lithium Quartz Crystal can also heal emotional issues from past lives.
Lithium Quartz can also activate and cleanse all of the Chakras. In Reiki and crystal healing sessions with our clients, and in self-treatment, we have found Lithium Quartz to induce deep relaxation in the most recalcitrant subjects, and to calm and soothe physcial, emotional and mental turbulence. For this reason, Lithium Quartz is also a desirable meditational aid.
Properties of Phantom Crystals
This phantom was created when a faceted tip formed at one point in the crystal's growth, but the crystal's growth was interrupted for some reason, and then the quartz crystal resumed its crystallization, eventually enclosing the phantom crystal within itself, creating a residual outline of the previous point completely enclosed within the enlarged crystal formation.
The phantom typically displays one or more translucent thin, cloud-like layers of mineral deposits resembling small points. Each layer of cloudy inclusion contains a revealing snapshot of the crystal's termination faces in the remote past. Each phantom marking represents a different stage in the crystal's growth -- and each stage can last for hundreds of thousands of years!
Each phantom crystal reveals its own evolutionary pattern -- it is as though we can see the record of the transmigrations of the crystal's soul. It should come as no surprise that phantom crystals help us to unearth our own histories, and to come to terms with unresolved issues from our past. Phantoms help us to see our own messy histories and our painful karmic issues as part of a beautiful spiritual evolution. In this way, they help to restore a sense of inner balance, unity and an aura of magic where there had been pain and struggle.
How do phantom crystals form within the Earth? One possibility is that a pocket of mineral rich liquid inside the earth surrounding the crystal dried out, stopping the crystal's growth. When a crystal's growth is interrupted for some reason, a thin dusting of such minerals as pyrite, hematite, chlorite or galena can gather on the termination faces.
Later, if the pocket is resaturated, another stage of crystal growth can occur.
If the crystal's growth then resumes, over long cycles of geologic time, the dusting of alien minerals covering the crystal's original termination faces is incorporated into a much larger quartz crystal.
This long growth process creates a crystal exhibiting the classic phantom crystal point which can be seen within the larger crystal. Sometimes one can see two or three phantom points within a given crystal wand, and in such cases, the growth process was undoubtedly stopped and started several times over unthinkably long periods of geological time.
The final result is the formation of a phantom crystal much larger than the original crystal structure at the point of growth interruption.
