This Purple Splash Brandberg Amethyst DT with Rainbows is a Lightworker's power tool and a unique mineralogical collector's item. This double terminated specimen exhibits a structure similar to a Herkimer diamond, with a splash of bright purple in its center, and still has matrix on the stone which is visible where the shaft meets one termination tip.
This Brandberg amethyst crystal is from Goboboseb Mountain, known as Xoboxobos to the natives, located in the Brandberg area, Brandberg District, Erongo Region of Namibia.
This Brandberg crystal exhibits excellent translucence and is unpolished and untreated in any way. This piece is so lovely, it looks painted by the hand of the Great Mother herself!
This Brandberg amethyst point is a good size to hold in your hand during meditation, and is small enough to be placed on a person's body during crystal healing or Reiki treatments.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Brandberg Amethyst Crystals
The amethyst crystals originating in the Brandberg region of Namibia are considered by gemologists to be unique in the mineral kingdom, and of the highest quality available in the world.
The African bushmen consider the entire mountainous region sacred, and call the central peak the "fire mountain".
Over 43,000 rock paintings can be found on the mountain and in the surrounding area, in around 1000 different sites. This region was formed over 130 million years by the fossilization of ancient rain forests, and now produces amethyst crystals with exceptional purple color, clarity and a vibrant luster that is unmistakable.
Amethyst crystals form in underground pockets of heat so intense that the crystals often blew holes in themselves to release the intense pressure. The crystals then produce intense purples, violets and smoky hues within the clear quartz matrix.
Brandberg amethyst quartz crystals are said by crystal healers to function as gatekeepers to Higher Worlds, and to generate a powerful field of protection for the bearer, bringing a sense of security, peace and protection.
This unique crystal inspires the bearer with confidence required to dive deep within the Self to illuminate the shadow side of our being, providing us with the light of Divine Love and the illumination of Divine Guidance from very high frequency Sources in Higher Worlds, enabling us to transform our deepest fears and most persistent negative emotions and thoughtforms into positive thoughts, loving emotions, and new, creative patterns of behavior that empower us to be our highest and best Selves.
Lightworkers and crystal healers who have worked with Brandberg crystals report that these crystals have an energy signature that resonates at a higher octave than normal amethyst. Brandberg amethyst is famous for imparting clarity, healing energy and connecting the bearer to the "peace that passeth understanding", making these gems ideal for meditation.
Our own experience in working with Brandbergs supports these reports. When holding one of these crystals during meditation, one can connect with a realm of violet light that transcended both the rational mind and ones normal connection to Higher Mind. We found it easier to participate in what we can only describe as a simple, joyful Divine presence, which fosters an awareness of the essential Unity of creation and to feel a connection to the Divine Plan which soothes the soul, calms the mind and subtly, gently opens the heart in a most relaxing way.
Brandberg amethysts have been used by crystal healers for many years, but their exceptional properties are just now reaching a wider audience as the mass consciousness concerning the metaphysical properties of crystals rises.
Brandberg amethysts are said by crystal healers to connect directly to great Beings of Light who bring messages from transcendent realms to their bearers. These rare gemstones transmit healing energies that promote great clarity of vision, and tremendous healing to troubled hearts and conflicted relationships, promoting peace and harmony in every aspect of life.
Because Brandberg amethyst is also considered to connect the bearer to realms beyond traditional concepts of Time and Space, this healing gemstone is also said to be ideal for healing the ancient wounds of childhood and even past lives, transforming negative emotions and thoughtforms into more positive patterns, and bringing about significant changes in behavioral patterning as well.
Properties of Amethyst Crystals
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.
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.
We often use crystals for psychic protection, purification and to clarify things of a spiritual nature. See our article on Psychic Self Defense for more information along these lines with many suggestions on how to protect yourself from unwanted energies.
