A stunning lemurian quartz crystal from our collection of rocks and minerals. Lemurian is a specific variety of quartz that can only be found in one mine in Brazil. Also known as lemurian seed crystal, it was discovered in the early 1990's and unlike regular quartz displays distinctive horizontal striations on one or more sides of the crystal. Lemurian quartz is said to be connected to the mythical ancient kingdom of Lemuria.
The kingdom of Lemuria is believed by some to have been an island which sunk to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean thousands of years ago but just like the lost island of Atlantis, there is little scientific evidence to support this. It is said the people of Lemuria predicted this cataclysmic event hence prepared seed crystals to preserve their knowledge and traditions.
In crystal healing lemurian quartz or lemurian seed crystals are said to be the most powerful varieties of quartz. They're natural record keepers with the ability to store a wealth of knowledge and information from the past.
From a geological perspective this relatively large lemurian quartz crystal is exceptionally translucent but not quite transparent. It exhibits distinctive striations and is very subtly included. A beautiful and incredible tactile quartz crystal that began life many millions of years ago.
