Lemurian Quartz is a special quartz hailing only from the Diamatina mine in Brazil - sometimes called Lemurian Seed Crystals they hold a specific vibration. Usually in a long tapered wand shape, they almost always have ladder-like grooves called striations that run horizontally along the surface. Running your fingers along with is always a treat allowing you to tap into some of the energies of ancient Lemuria encoded in these gems. Lemuria was the fabled ancient civilization believed to have sunk beneath the Pacific Ocean many thousands of years ago. The volcanoes of Hawaii and other Polynesian islands are thought by some to be the tops of the ancient Lemurian Mountains. These people had much more of an emotional and spiritual connection than our modern era. Some would say Lemuria was the basis for the stories of the Garden of Eden. These stones can help us learn to fully experience & integrate both the emotional/intuitive elements and rational/mental aspects of ourselves to reach for a greater connection with spirit. These crystals can help one attain once again that balancing, loving, nurturing, sensuous, & spiritual consciousness that has been long lost by most of humanity today. Of course, it is important not to abandon the mental, or rational world whilst working these. When working with them in meditation, self-healing practices, or other modalities, the crystals can infuse one with the pure emotional/spiritual/intuitive awareness of the Lemurians. These stones can allow for for wonderful experiences of both heart opening & healing of the emotional body. One may even feel the feeling of elation or a "returning to paradise" type reconnection with the soul or a sense of becoming more whole. An appreciation of physical and emotional life or an increased sensuality may also occur. When one is out in the world of nature especially, the divine presence may become almost tangible while one may also discover a more true self emerging called a "Return to the Garden". These have the power to be full of emotional experience & love that it feels as though it is some balm to the soul, benefitting almost anyone. Even those who don't 'need' healing can feel the absolutely wonderful energy these stones possess & will want to be around them simply for that.
