Also referred to as Cactus Quartz or Porcupine Quartz, it is found only near Boekenhouthoek South Africa (NOT the Magaliesberg Mountains as is often mistakenly claimed), first appearing around 1998. Most Spirit Quartz used to be Amethyst, though nowadays real amethyst has become very rare and Citrine, Smokey,Yellow, Ametrine and White Quartz are more commonly mined.
The same mines also produce fairy quartz crystals which are coated with fine clear druzy crystals with a very high refractive index. While they may appear dullish in photographs or dull lighting, they are truly magical when seen in proper lighting or direct sunlight. The most glittering crystal you have ever seen!
I obtain several hundred kilograms from the mine every week or 2, so please feel free to inquire about bulk wholesale orders.
Spirit Quartz is an unusual quartz that has many very small crystals growing on a central stone. A cactus or spirit quartz is a quartz crystal that is encrusted by a second generation of smaller crystals grown on its prism faces.
Each tiny crystal radiates energy with all of these little crystals working in harmony to radiate a very strong vibration.
These stones have powerful metaphysical properties that make them excellent stones to aid spiritual growth. This makes a single piece a quite powerful stone.
