Quartz after Anhydrite

Quartz after Anhydrite

Well this is a very unusual piece !

This strange piece started life as very pale blue crystals of the rare mineral Anhydrite. Anhydrite is an evaporate mineral, formed when sea water evaporates under certain specific conditions.

At some stage after its formation it was exposed to Quartz in a molten liquid form which flowed over the Anhydrite crystals and which took on the structure of the Anhydrite as it slowly cooled.

It does this molecule by molecule slowly changing the Anhydrite into Quartz, but so slowly and gently, that the original form of the Anhydrite is still retained. The Anhydrite crystals which were once pale blue are now now a cream or ivory colour and the whole process only took an eternity !

The black matrix is Basalt and this piece was discovered in an area of Brazil called Rio Grande do Sul.

The way the original fan shape of the Anhydrite crystals has been retained is nothing short of Amazing !

If you look very closely, there is also a tiny Double Terminated crystal of Calcite that has attached itself to one of the blades.

All in all, a truly gorgeous piece !

Size approx. 105mm x 90mm x 55mm
Weight approx. 280grms

Anhydrite Properties and Meaning
Crystal Healing Properties, Metaphysical and Gemstone Meaning

Physical
Anhydrite is said to be beneficial in treating disorders of the throat and with problems associated with water retention and swelling. It is also thought to promote physical strength.

Mental/Emotional
Anhydrite helps to clear distractions from the mind. It helps us to appreciate all the changes we have made and all the different situations that we have been in over the years, and helps us to look back at them, to understand them and to take the learning from them. It also helps us to accept and to face up to whatever may come our way tomorrow. Anhydrite is also extremely useful when we need to communicate with people who have a very different mindset from our own.

Spiritual
Anhydrite helps us to realise that our human body is in fact, only transient. It also helps us to better contact our own spirit guides and is useful for past life healing. It can also cleanse our aura of any negative energies.


Quartz Properties and Meaning
Crystal Healing Properties, Metaphysical and Gemstone Meaning

Physical
Quartz, sometimes called clear quartz or rock crystal or quartz crystal, is a Master Healer, and as such, can be used for any condition. Quartz has the property to receive, store, amplify and transmit energies. It has an organising and harmonising effect on all parts of the body. When Quartz is attuned to the person requiring healing, it can act at a very deep vibrational level indeed, bringing the body, the subtle bodies and the aura back into balance. Quartz is excellent for general healing as it helps to speed up the whole healing process. It fortifies the nerves, balances the two halves of the brain and stimulates glandular activity. Quartz can also amplify the effect of other crystals placed nearby.

Mental/Emotional
Quartz dissolves areas of imbalance and negativity and provides us with a sense of calmness and clarity in our minds. It restores a more balanced energy to us and this property makes Quartz a valuable healing tool. Quartz amplifies and strengthens the whole auric field. It helps us to find simple ways to solve our problems, aids concentration and helps us to remember things. Quartz harmonises all the chakras.

Spiritual
An excellent stone for meditation, Quartz enables us to communicate with all levels of spirit life and indeed, with every dimension. Quartz can encourage our spiritual development and can also help us to attune to our spiritual purpose in life. Quartz further helps us by ensuring that any such spiritual development remains in tune with our own sense of who we are, in tune with our own sense of our true inner self. It is a deep soul cleanser, raising energies to their highest possible spiritual level.
