Welcome to part four in our misrepresentation of crystals series.
Here in New Zealand – when sitting around a room with a bunch of friends and one of them is telling an outlandish tale, it is common for the group to chorus in at the end “Cool Story Bro” and have a good-natured laugh with the story teller! In the crystal World, in my opinion we have a few “Cool Story Bro” tales as well, and I’m going to cover what I consider to be three of the erm….cooler stories out there 😉
OK, so the story goes that these crystals have been struck by lightning which has downloaded some awesome light codes and left etching in the form of a lightning bolt on the Quartz. I personally take these factors into consideration when contemplating the above.
- Though the story says these crystals were left out in the open by ancient enlightened beings, these crystals are actually being found in mines.
- When Quartz crystals are exposed to even relatively minor heat variations they can crack and even shatter. How are they going to go when exposed to a Billion volts, and no that is not an exaggeration, each bolt can contain up to one billion volts of electricity containing billions of watts.
- When lightning strikes Quartz rich sand, it creates fulgurites by MELTING the Quartz. Lightning strike Quartz is etched, not melted.
OK, so what causes the etching? Very Likely the same process that etches other Quartz crystals such as Elestials, and that is about as opposite of lightning as one can get – that being water!
Monatomic Andara crystals
These crystals are purported to be from one of Earth’s high-energy vortex sites in the High Sierra Mountains of northern California. It comes in many colors and looks a lot like, well…glass – complete with the same bubbles one gets in colored glass. I’m calling “Cool Story Bro” on this one until I see photos of this “mineral” in it’s natural habitat – in other words coming from the earth in a miners hand who is standing in a dirty rocky hole!
SENTIENT PLASMA CRYSTALS™
OK, straight off the bat, let us get one thing clear – these crystals are one and the same as other Laser Wand Quartz Crystals from Columbia. They both come from the exact same source. The only difference is the ones with a “Cool Story” are going for an exorbitant $15,000 per kg. Other Colombian crystals from ethically responsible dealers go for $500 to $950 per kg.
Now, do not get me wrong, the story that these crystals will work very closely and in a personal way with the guardian is very likely true – however, the ethically priced ones will do exactly the same job. The story these people tell to sell them at the higher price is sound. One may think of these stories coming from “Modern day Prophets”, it is just these people have got the spelling wrong and mistakenly think it is “Modern Day Profits™”. I’m pretty sure Jesus did not say, I will tell you this cool story bro if you line my pockets with gold first!
That concludes this “Cool Story Bro” edition of our Misrepresentation of Crystals blog series. Check back for part five of our blog series in a few months 🙂
Very refreshing to see someone else who sees thru the market hype BS and get back to basic (obvious to most) truth about Sentient & Andara. I sell as normal Colombian Qtz at usual prices. Not these ridiculously inflated prices. Thank you.
It is so rewarding to come into contact with someone else who enlightens other Crystal enthusiasts about fake Crystals. I appreciate your blog. I am sick and tired of reading information of Crystals that is either far fetched, egsadurated, os a downright lie
I would really appreciate it if you could please tell me if Apophyllite is a record keeper? I look forward to reading your reply. Angel Blessings Ann
Hi Ann, Thank You for sharing! Please accept my apologies for the late reply, we have just got back from a 9 day crystal buying trip in Colombia. Yes, Apophyllite can have Record Keeper properties, but it is rare. If you have a photo you would like me to look over, you may send it along to email@example.com
Do you know of any websites to get ethically sourced and priced crystals? And I mean, sites where good quality Quartz and other crystals are sold on the basis of their quality and clarity, rather than some mumbo jumbo about "lightning strikes" or "lemurian crystals". Thank you very much for your information!
That is a tough order these days! I source my crystals from where ever, names after all are just labels assigned by humans. Stories associated with the names can be taken on, or ignored, the crystal remains the same either way. The World of Quartz is vast and varied when it comes to price, and ethics for that matter. A lot of purported “New Age” $eller$ are all about trademarks, fables and above all dollars, and straight mineral specimen dealers can be extremely focused on harvesting every last possible dollar they can. I cannot think of a website I can recommend that is free of the names and high prices, though there are many, many websites I have not seen. I run my own website called Majestic Quartz I’ve been running for 20 years, but I do use the names to describe them. If I buy by weight, I sell by weight, if I’m forced to buy by the piece I have a set markup I only go downwards from lol. Prices really depend on so many factors, how hard they are to mine, location, availability etc. You can get Quartz ranging from $50 a kilo through to $1000’s per kilo. I was going to recommend a site called sweet surrender crystal mine, but it looks like it has changed hands and now barely has any stock and their pricing has changed somewhat. If you know what you are looking for you may choose to contact me through Majestic Quartz if you feel to.
