Spirit Quartz is an unusual member of the Quartz family- a community within a stone. Varying in shades of pale lilac to deep purple, its core, a larger, candle-shaped crystal with a faceted termination point is encrusted with hundreds of smaller crystal termination points. Also referred to as Cactus Quartz or Porcupine Quartz, it is found only in the Magaliesberg mountain region of South Africa, first appearing around 2001. Spirit Quartz is a crystal of Harmony and Alignment. It is very cleansing to the aura and can dispel negative attachments and entities, assists a soul with facing death and provides immense support throughout a terminal illness. Citrine varies in colors of pale yellow to gold, sometimes with a rich orange or brownish cast. Citrine purifies intent, and increases the sense of self-worth and empowerment, giving access to true abundance while releasing attachments to material things, making this a marvelous stone for conflict resolution and in seeking, or granting, forgiveness.
