For someone who doesn’t know all of the fun terminology used to describe minerals, this specimen will sound especially alien!
Skeletal Elestial Smokey Quartz with Enhydro inclusions and Double Terminations
In case you need some help understanding what this all means I will define each of these terms: A quartz specimen is considered Skeletal when it presents an extreme visible depth. Unstable conditions during their growth result in irregular patterns and colors building upon each other from the core of the specimen to its exterior. It is considered Skeletal because it resembles a skeleton within a body, as if witnessed through an x-ray. An Elestial crystal is an extreme version of a skeletal crystal that takes form with deep etchings and patterns on the exterior layer. Skeletal and Elestial crystals aid in spiritual and personal growth and healing. They are especially helpful for those who feel unsupported or have been through major trauma.
Enhydro Inclusions are formed when bubbles of water are trapped within a mineral. These bubbles are sometimes seen moving within a crystal and are other times overlooked if they are stationary or are located deeper in the core of the specimen. Sometimes specimen with these inclusions are nicknames Enhydros, and they create a balance between earth and water elements. Earth is often associated with practicality and productivity while Water is associated with emotion and creativity.
Smokey Quartz is a form of quartz that varies from dark to translucent grey, black or brown due to natural radiation in its area of formation. Quartz is composed of Silicon Dioxide (SiO2) and the color of the Smokey quartz depends on the amount of free silicone present during its construction. Smokey quartz is an effective healing crystal for warding off negative energies from one’s environment or from within themselves. Those with depression or who are regularly exposed to harmful influences will benefit from a Smokey quartz crystal.
Double Terminated crystals form with points at opposite ends. The termination in crystals direct energy from the center outward toward the points. Double terminated crystals are often used in reiki and other forms of healing work as they can direct energy very efficiently from a crystal to the subject. Quartz is considered the ultimate amplifier. When a double terminated crystal is placed between a healing mineral of choice and the subject it directs and enhances the energy of the mineral to the subject efficiently.

Vera Cruz Amethyst is a very rare and special form of Amethyst that is harvested at only one mine in the entire world. It comes from Vera Cruz, Mexico and is in fact being mined to depletion! Although this commercial mining technique is not what we support at The Crystalline Cavern, we are delighted and blessed every time we come into contact with one of these magnificent pieces. Vera Cruz crystals are most often an inch long and a very deep lilac purple, while somewhat translucent. These Amethyst points are considered a high-grade mineral and are cherished by enthusiasts worldwide. These minerals are considered Silicates, as they are Quartz relatives, and are composed of Silicone Dioxide (SiO2).
In terms of healing properties, Vera Cruz Amethyst is an effective source of relief for anxiety, migraines and insomnia, and can aid in overcoming addiction and breaking bad habits. This high vibrational crystal works to protect those around it from negative influences. This is a fantastic healing crystal for those who experience difficulty in meditation. Vera Cruz Amethyst resonates on the third eye chakra’s vibrational field and it is recommended that, to enhance intuition and spiritual connection, the point of the Amethyst be directed above and between the brows toward one’s pineal gland or third eye . The astrological sign associated with Vera Cruz Amethyst is Pisces.
The Crystalline Cavern is extremely lucky and grateful to have acquired a massive specimen of Vera Cruz Amethyst. In fact, we haven’t ever seen a piece of Vera Cruz Amethyst this large, in person or online, and consider it a prized possession! The piece weighs in at roughly 76 grams, 4 inches long & 2 inches wide. Compared to an average Vera Cruz Amethyst (5.2 grams, 2 inches long and 0.25 inches wide), it is very obvious that this is an extraordinary specimen.
