This 2.85 inch tall unpolished Golden Lemurian Phantom Point with Small Window, weighing 4.8 ounces or 137 grams, has lovely color and great clarity with typical Lemurian striations on the shaft as well.
This is a lovely altarpiece, which reclines on its base, pointing upwards.
The phantom is clearly visible in the lower part of the termination tip in the picture above.
You can see the window formation adjacent the right side of the large face on the termination tip, pictured above.
This specimen comes from one of the new Lemurian mines in the Serra do Cabral mountain range in Brazil.

Properties of Window Crystals and Phantoms
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.
Window quartz displays a diamond, rectangular or four sided face between two faces of the termination tip, where the tip meets the main body of the shaft. These forms are said to be a window to the soul, and to help access intuition and spiritual guidance free of the interfering mind, ego and emotions.
It is helpful using a ‘past facing window’ (one which points to the left), to access information which may be helpful on your current journey, or something which must be retrieved in order to be completed or to gain closure & understanding. A forward facing window is one which angles to the right and can be used to access information from the future.
Properties of Golden Healer Lemurians
Jane and I have discovered through direct experience that Lemurian golden healers are true "ascension stones", raising the vibrational frequency of the entire chakra system and promoting a higher energy signature throughout body, mind and aura. Just keep reading and we'll tell you all about what we experienced.
Because these Golden Lemurians are so saturated with both light and color, they look deeper and more transparent depending on how you hold them and in what kind of light you are working in with the wands. I've taken a shot of this piece against a green outdoor background so you can see the great range of color and transparency in this beauty. See various views on this page.
This Golden Healer Lemurian crystal displays remarkable clarity throughout. Hematite or iron oxide inclusions give this Golden Healer Lemurian a distinctive golden orange color. The golden-orange coloration, and the infusion of hematite gives this Lemurian cluster a distinct metaphysical connection to Archangel Michael, as is explained in the paragraphs below.
Generally, golden healer crystals have a coating of iron oxide on the surface of the crystal which imparts the characteristic color, ranging from yellow to brownish yellow. Occasionally the iron oxide suffuses the entire crystal with a golden glow. Golden healer crystals that are completely infused with a beautiful golden color are much more rare and energetically powerful than those with a mere coating of iron oxide.
Golden healer crystals are used by crystal healers for their ability to magnify the flow of prana throughout the body and aura to promote healing, reduce fear and anxiety, induce a state of deep relaxation and accelerate tissue healing.
Golden healers are said to put the healer and the one seeking healing in touch with the guidance they need to take them more rapidly and easily along their own personal path of healing. Golden healers are also said to powerfully energize and activate the crown and third, or solar plexus chakra.
Through the energized crown chakra we experience a more conscious connection to Spirit. The increased flow of energy through the solar plexus chakra enhances our own sense of personal power, imparting self-confidence and an increased ability to do our work in the world.
This Golden Healer Lemurian crystal is a marvelous tool for doing any kind of energy work, meditation or healing. The Golden Healer Lemurians have a very powerful energy signature.
Jane and I are very excited about these new golden healer Lemurian crystals, because of our personal experience with them in meditation and in giving Reiki treatments to our clients. In meditation and self-Reiki treatments, Jane and I experienced first hand the unique power of these new Lemurian healing crystals.
First, one experiences a vastly increased flow of prana throughout the body, accompanied by a sense of relief, release of tension and well-being.
Next there is a sense of energy elevating to a higher frequency within all seven of the primary chakras associated with the physical body.
Other golden crystals and gemstones we have used amplify the energy in the crown chakra, but these Lemurian golden healers are true "ascension stones", raising the vibrational frequency of the entire chakra system and promoting a higher energy signature throughout body, mind and aura.
These golden healer crystals promote the purification of the entire body, mind and aura as they simultaneously help the bearer to raise their energy from the lower chakras to the more highly evolved spiritual centers.
No matter where your consciousness is normally centered, in the first, second, third or fourth chakra, you will notice that your consciousness is raised to a higher level during sessions with the Golden Healer Lemurian crystals.
Following this sense of elevation, the Golden Healer Lemurians initiated a profound relaxation of the physical body, which occurred over a period of time. One senses a strong flow of energy into the areas of the body where tensions are held. Then one experiences a gentle breakup of blockages in those areas where the most tension is held in muscles throughout the body.
During a meditation session, it is helpful to take deep slow breaths from the diaphragm and "breathe through the tension", which facilitates the gentle dissipation of these blockages in the energy system.
As these energy blockages dissipate, one enjoys a deep relaxation of muscles, ligaments, tendons and nervous tension, especially in those areas that had held the most tension.
Then, mental activity simply ceased, the incessantly arising procession of thoughts common to our waking consciousness slowing dramatically until few or no new thoughts appeared.
As mental activity ceased, we experienced a profound feeling of inner peace and well-being. Stillness, silence, and a vision of a deep velvety void shot through with tiny sparkling lights. Then, simply silence.
In further meditations with the Golden Healer crystals, the Sky Goddess Nuit appeared to us. The Goddess of Love and Light, Mistress of the Milky Way, and Mother of the Universe imparted this message:
"I have poured our my living, loving light into the Golden Healer Lemurians to help Lightworkers stay open, clear and balanced during these times of Earthly transition, so you may all continue to receive the increasing flow of energy from Source that the Ascended Master Hierarchy is directing to that segment of Humanity which is open to the elevation of human energy signatures to a higher level, on what many call the Ascension Path.
The pain and suffering humanity is experiencing results from a totally imbalanced cultural relationship to nature, to spirit and to soul-life, especially to the divinities and Ascended Master Teachers and Guides. This imbalance in the group consciousness of humanity impacts all human beings, no matter how advanced they may be spiritually.
The birth pangs of a new global consciousness create increased tensions and energetic blockages within the human body-mind-aura and can impede the energetic progress of even advanced Lightworkers and others on the path of Spirit.
I nourish the Universe with the milk of my breasts, which manifests as the Zero Point Field of background energy which creates and sustains the stars in your skies and your Mother Planet Earth. The Golden Healer Lemurians are that Divine milk churned by Mother Earth over untold ages of geological time into a crystalline butter that will nourish human bodies, minds and emotional bodies. Accept this gift from the Mistress of the Stars, and think of me with love as you work with these beautiful love-offerings carrying the energy signature of the Divine Source, which lies beyond the four dimensional time-space continuum."
Properties of Lemurian Quartz Crystals
Lemurians occur naturally with multiple striations and it is thought that these striations contain information from ancient civilizations. They are tuned to energies of unity, and help us to balance the spiritual and physical aspects of our lives. Place the striations on the third eye or place the finger on the striations while meditating, or just place the crystal on your meditation cushion or altar nearby you.
They are said to have been left behind by an advanced ancient civilization known as the Lemurians. Lemuria is said to have been an intuitive, spiritual civilization.
The most prominent source of information about Lemurian civilization comes from wisdom teachers of the now-legendary Theosophical School of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, which included such luminaries as J. Krishnamurti, Madame Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Rudolf Steiner and Charles Leadbeater.
These spiritual teachers claimed to have had clairvoyant insights into the history and origins of the human race that transcended all existing scholarship and historical records. These clairvoyant mystics relied upon a direct experience of the Akashic Records to formulate their own timeline of human development.
The Akashic Records are said to constitute a vast, ethereal library containing all of humanity's thoughts, words and deeds which has been impressed upon the substance of the vast Universal Field of Life Force Energy filling all time and space. In fact, the information in the Akashic Records is considered Universal in nature, and transcends human history. Scholars of the Hindu Vedas, the oldest written sacred scriptures on our planet, say that the wisdom in the Vedas was transcribed by ancient seers and sages, known as "rishis", who read the Akashic records and recorded what they saw.
According to mystic, clairvoyant, author and scholar Rudolf Steiner, who broke with the Theosophical Society and founded the Waldorf Schools and biodynamic agriculture, the Lemurian civilization existed prior to Atlantis, and existed in South Asia and Africa, extending from Ceylon to Madagascar.
According to Steiner, the Lemurians derived immense powers of will and strength from a direct connection to the energy bodies of plants and animals around them. The Lemurian was, says Steiner, "a born magician in all fields of lower human activities." Steiner discusses the Lemurian civilization extensively in his book "Cosmic Memory" and in many other publications and lectures.
According to Steiner, Lemurian institutions of higher learning focused on teaching initiates secret techniques enabling them to control the forces of nature by direct contemplation. Steiner said these Lemurian mystery schools "stood far above what mankind has since acquired in the way of arts and sciences." He called them "colleges of will power and of the clairvoyant power of the imagination. From them emerged men who became, in every respect, rulers of the others."
Steiner says that life on Earth was vastly different then. The "air was much thicker", the "water much thinner." The ground was thin and broken apart continually by the action of convulsive volcanic forces. The Earth in this period was shaped by the primal element of Fire. What we know as small ferns existed as giants of the plant world. Only amphibians, birds and lower animals existed. The vast majority of humanity lived a very primitive life, which can only be described as animalistic in nature.
Yet for those in the Lemurian mystery schools, life was exalted beyond what we know today. "The uninitiated, of course, stood under the magical influence of the initiated," says Steiner. "It was also natural that the latter considered themselves sanctified personages. . . They looked into the creative workshop of nature. They experienced a communion with the beings who built the world itself. One can call this communion an association with the gods."
Steiner says that in the later periods of the more highly developed Lemurian civilization, the role of female initiates was paramount, and that these female initiates were responsible for planting the seeds of the knowledge of good and evil in the soul of mankind, as well as for developing the first human awareness of beauty, and for cultivating the first human language, a kind of song.
Thus all subsequent human civilizations owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Lemurian priestesses, who created the first Mystery Schools teaching enlightenment through direct experience of nature, the firsthuman system of ethics, the first art and highly developed system of aesthetics and the first, prototypical human language.
The Lemurian civilization's artifacts have been recently rediscovered by Lightworkers whose energy and auric signatures resonate harmonically with the energy of the original Lemurian sages and healers. The Lemurians were said to be Stewards of the Earth.
The Lemurian quartz crystals have been identified as tools of the present era's Lightworkers whose task is to preserve the environment -- those known as Protectors of Mother Earth.
These Protectors often use Lemurian crystals to unify their energies with lightworkers throughout the world and beyond, to perform collective meditations for the benefit of the environment and all the beings who dwell on our Blue-Green Planet. These crystals are very useful for individual and collective meditations and prayer sessions that send healing energy to the magnetic grids surrounding the Earth because of their structure and origin. The Lemurians are ideal for transmitting energy around the world or to large numbers of people dispersed geographically or to large geographical areas.
Healers we have spoken to about the Lemurian crystals say that these stones have a warmth and power that they have not seen before. And we can say from personal experience using Lemurians in a clinical setting with people with chronic and life threatening illness, that these stones can open and soothe the heart chakra and the emotional body, bringing comfort and deep relaxation. They are ideal for use by vibrational healers, Reiki therapists, and other energy workers.
The Archangel Michael Connection
This powerful Lemurian Golden Healer Quartz Crystal contains hematite, or iron oxide, giving it a distinctive golden-orange hue, and a distinctive metaphysical connection with Archangel Michael.
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 months, during late September and October in the northern hemisphere, 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.
