Double Terminated Carbon Filled Quartz with Twin
This one is difficult to part with. It's a beautiful carbon filled quartz from the Himalayas. It looks all black until you shine light through it. It has hidden rainbows and other inclusions that make this a small but mighty piece to add to your collection.
Measures 1.25" long.
Carbon Included Quartz:
Undefined blackish inclusions, as opposed to generally lighter greyish shale inclusions are carbon. Where these inclusions form a phantom, black phantom properties also apply.
These are excellent grounding and base chakra stones.
"This mineral can help purify ones body and ones surroundings. It can be worn, carried, used as an elixir, or stationed in ones environment. It provides for grounding and centring during meditation, such that one may eliminate distractions.”
More about the quartz formations:
TWIN CRYSTALS have two terminations (points) at the same end, which have developed from a single base. You can tell a twin crystal from two crystals that are simply attached to each other, by the fact that both parts of a twin crystal are exactly parallel to each other, and have no boundary between them in at least a small region of the crystal. These are wonderful crystals to use when dealing with `relationship' things. They can help you gain insight into the underlying problems in a relationship, and help work through them. They can generate very positive energy towards improving a relationship. This works for any kind of relationship, not only a man-woman relationship. A twin with a rainbow can be very effectively used to project healing energy into a relationship or to keep a good relationship strong.
When you are having a problem with a relationship sit quietly with the twin and ask for help. Remember, that answers come from many directions.
Twins are personal crystals as one of the twins is very closely tuned to your energy, so it is not possible to use this crystal to work for others in relationship matters.
DOUBLE TERMINATED CRYSTALS are crystals that have points on both ends, allowing energy to flow readily in both directions. Double terminated crystals strengthen energy flow, and are especially useful when you need to share or exchange energy between you and another person. They are useful when you are working to help other people, for example in massage or counseling, where energy needs to flow in both directions. In these situations, energy flows toward you when you tune in to a person to find out what that person needs, and energy flows from you when you give the person the needed healing energy. Double terminated crystals are very important to people doing healing work for themselves or others. They also help teach sharing through energy exchange.
