Brazilian quartz from the Minas Gerais region is known for its incredible high quality, unique formations, and intensely powerful energies. Smokey quartz from this region ranges from soft honey colored to rich dark black. These quartz crystals are 100% raw, natural, untreated, unpolished items!
This particular Brazilian point has the following unique qualities:
~ Rainbows: Rainbow crystals are beacons of joy, hope, and positivity. Natural internal fractures in the crystal structure create lovely rainbows in this piece!
~ Rutilation: “Rutile” is a mineral made of titanium oxide that grows in thin, hair-like lines within quartz. It can grow in many colors – this Brazilian quartz crystals have a gorgeous golden rutile visible along two sides, as shown in photos 3, 4 and 7. Metaphysically, rutile is said to be like the rays of the sun, illuminating new visions and hopes, and shining light on a person’s places of strength. Physically, rutile is said to act as a regenerator to all cells, and help to provide relief for diseases of the lungs like chronic bronchitis.
~ Elestial: Elestial crystals have many natural terminations and folds over a multi layered crystal. Appears to be wrinkled and feels that way too. This is young quartz and is usually smoky in appearance seemingly burnt by a fire. Elestials bring the most Yin power of all quartz crystals. They are the matriarch stone, the Queen Stone, and the symbol of feminine dominion.
~ Fairy Frost: tiny fractures and striations within this quartz creates amazing wispy structures within this piece. Metaphysically, the Fairy Frost feature is said to increase communion and learning with the natural world, earth/forest spirits, and the elements. These crystals are guides to nature and to connecting with the universal life force.
~ Key: These are unique, natural structural indentations in a crystal that narrow as they go deeper. These structures grow during the natural formation processes. Metaphysically, the key is exactly what it sounds like: a key to opening doors, to further freedom, to empowerment! Meditation with a key crystal supports one's ability to shed harm and maintain strength in the face of adversity. The keys in this particular crystal have self-healed type sides - stunning catching the light! There are multiple keys around this lovely crystal, each unique.
~ Etchings: the marks shown along the side of this quartz are called "etchings" because they look like someone took a tool and etched out a pattern along the sides. These etchings are 100% naturally formed during the original formation process of the crystal. Metaphysically, etchings are said to remind people of the small steps that lead to healthy change.
~ Soft "honey" brown smokey: smokey quartz is affiliated with protection, releasing negative energies, grounding spirit through the root chakra, and connections to Gaia.
~ Fairy Dust: When a crystal's exterior appears "dusted" with hundreds of tiny specks of crystals it is called "fairy dust." These crystals are brilliant light reflectors and excellent for assisting with separating your own spirit from its relationship with others, and get in touch with your real spirit, use a Fairy Dust crystal to aid in your efforts of self-knowledge and purpose.

**About Grove of Stones:**
Grove of Stones exists to connect beautiful stones and minerals with those who wish to experience the wonderful qualities that these stones radiate. Tanya Pluth, founder of Grove of Stones, grew up looking for agates on county gravel roads in Minnesota, and watching relatives make jewelry with precious stones. Tanya learned to select and work with stones from a shaman who paired stones as tools for healing, ceremony, and sacred purposes. Tanya is gifted in pairing people with stones. At a recent expo, a colleague gave Tanya the nickname "The Stone Shepherd" because of her ability to find incredible stones and deliver them to people who seek high-quality crystals and minerals. Tanya travels extensively to locate the most "alive" stones to share with others. She mines some of her own material. And where she can't mine, she purchases, whenever possible, directly from the miners themselves, and as a result is able to ensure proper treatment of the stones along their journeys. If you are looking for a particular stone, be sure to ask Tanya! She'd love to hear what you are looking for and find just the right stone for you.
