Large standing Lemurian Quartz unpolished crystal from Serra do cabral, Brazil. This is an incredible crystal with very prominent Lemurian growth lines. There is something very special about these quartz crystals and the story behind them. Some people are immediately drawn to them and many use these as healing tools. Lemurian Crystals are said to have originated in an area known as Mu or Lemuria, an ancient civilization that possibly existed eons ago. All traces of this civilization have long since disappeared beneath the sea, so some believe. The Lemurian people are believed to have foreseen a cataclysmic event, a great change in the land mass that would end their physical civilization. For about 300 years before the end, Lemurians determined to preserve their highly evolved spiritual knowledge and traditions by initiating procedures to record and store this knowledge. One method was to program energy data into quartz crystals, called "seed crystals", to be buried deep in the earth. As the legend goes, the Lemurians then departed the earth for the stars, perhaps as spiritual light beings, leaving the crystals behind to be discovered at a future date in our earth's evolution. In 1999 while excavating in the Serra do Cabral mountain region of Brazil, miners discovered the first quartz crystals that have come to be known as Lemurians (as determined by "intuitives" that have connected with these crystals on an energetic level). Reportedly, these crystals were positioned side by side in rows, as if they had been seeded for later harvest. Special identifying features include specific horizontal growth line patterns that are said to be unique only to Lemurian crystals. This is much more than an ornamental crystal, more so a tool for healing, connecting and remembering who we are!
