Lemurian quartz is a type of quartz crystal known for its unique appearance and metaphysical properties. It is believed to have originated in ancient Lemuria, a mythical lost civilization. Lemurian quartz is characterized by its distinct horizontal striations or "barcode" patterns on one or more sides of the crystal.
The formation of Lemurian quartz is associated with a process called "seeding." According to metaphysical beliefs, ancient Lemurian beings encoded knowledge and wisdom into the crystals using these striations. It is said that they planted the crystals in various locations around the world for future generations to discover and access this ancient information.
Lemurian quartz is found in several countries, including Brazil, Madagascar, Russia, and the United States. Brazil, specifically the Serra do Cabral region, is renowned for producing high-quality Lemurian quartz crystals.
If you have received the "pink" variety of Lemurian quartz, this coloring is likely caused by the presence of iron or manganese impurities within the crystal structure. These impurities can give the quartz a pinkish tint, ranging from pale pink to deeper shades of rose or magenta.
Metaphysically, Lemurian quartz is highly regarded for its spiritual properties. It is believed to hold the energy of divine love, unity, and higher consciousness. The pink varieties are often associated with heart chakra, promoting feelings of empathy, forgiveness, and unconditional love. The striations on the Lemurian crystals are said to serve as access points to ancient wisdom, making them valuable tools for meditation, energy healing, and spiritual growth.
