This beautiful piece is from a new find in 2013! Brazil is the one country that has the largest network of specimen and gem mining in the world. It is well known for many of the world's best pegmatites, producing high class Gem Crystals. Brazil has the widest variety of multi-colored Tourmaline worldwide, and is semi-regularly producing new colors every few years. The vast array of Quartz varieties from Brazil deserve a book of their own.
Lemurian Quartz are crystals that taper from top to bottom and are characterized by stair-stepped lines that run perpendicularly to the C axis. According to Metaphysical lore, it is believed that they are seeded with information from the ancient Lemurian culture. They are typically found in Brazil, Colombia, and Russia. There are other places where crystals with similar habits occur.
