This exotic, rare 1.75 inch long Small Deep Indigo Quartz Actinolite Cluster comes from Vitoria da Conquista, in Bahia, Brazil is still on its matrix and weighs 32 grams or 1.1 ounces. The gorgeous coloration comes from inclusions of the mineral actinolite.
There are two varieties of Indigo Quartz -- indicalite and actinolite. Actinolite works more intensely on the mental and physical bodies, with less subtlety than Indicalite (Blue tourmalinated quartz.). This stone feels as though you are smoothing out all creases, anxieties & tensions VERY quickly, because in our experience it seems to work first on the mental body, quieting the mind, then extending it's thorough yet gentle unwinding to the physical.
Jane and I are deeply impressed by the powerful healing energy generated by this rare Brazilian Indigo Quartz, because of our personal experience with the stone in meditation and in use during Reiki healing sessions. When we use Actinolite or Indigo Quartz in Reiki sessions we find that it imparts a feeling of profound protection, deep relaxation and reverential quietude to clients seeking healing.
We also use & recommend Actinolite to those of you for whom sleep is an intermittant affair. Actinolite promotes relaxation & gently eases the bearer into sound & deep sleep.

This Indigo Quartz crystal comes to us as part of a small shipment from Brazil, where it is available directly from the source in very limited quantities. This Actinolite Indigo Quartz is an alluvial stone, meaning that it is found in river deltas, where it washed downstream from the mountains where it was formed. These rare crystals were found in the fields of farmers in Bahia, Brazil, near the surface of the Earth. No mining was involved.

Properties of Quartz Crystals
Quartz crystals have been used by healers, spiritual teachers, and scientists of the sacred throughout history to receive, transmit, store, focus, amplify, transform and balance the various forms of energy found in our Universe, all of which can be considered to be interchangeable forms of Universal Light.
Quartz crystals have this marvelous ability because, metaphysically, quartz crystal expresses the unity of the five elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Ether or Spirit).
Crystals grow deep in the earth and form much of the earth’s crust, yet crystals, like the element air, allow light to pass through them. Thus crystals partake of the qualities of the elements of air and earth.
Crystals are fiery in that they have piezoelectric properties yet they are watery in their hexagonal molecular structure which resembles snowflakes, and in their ice-like appearance.
Crystals are quintessential expressions of the element of Ether or Spirit, which is synonymous with Universal Life Force Energy, the fundamental energy that sustains all forms of energy in the known universe.
Thus crystals partake of the qualities of all five elements and thus crystals manifest the unity that underlies the apparent multiplicity of material creation, the unity of both material and spiritual worlds.
From a metaphysical viewpoint, quartz crystals are cosmic tuning forks, harmonizing the soul, mind, heart and body of the user with the vibrational frequencies of Spiritual worlds – which are after all simply realms of light resonating at a much higher frequency than the material world.
We often use crystal pendants 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.
