This is such a sweet, loving crystal skull! It is a lodolite phantom quartz crystal skull. Lodolites are phantom quartz that have inclusions of various types within. This one has tons of jam packed epidote, clay and sand inclusions! AND it has a sweet heart shape on its base (see last pic). The whole energy of this crystal skull is about the Love in our hearts and how to apply it. This lodolite phantom quartz crystal skull measures 3" long, 2-3/8" tall and 2-1/4" wide. Phantom quartz are identified as a ghost-like version of the overall crystal. It marks a crystal’s growth for us to see; where it has stopped growing and then begun again, each time a layer of another mineral is added in between. Sometimes there are even multiple layers stacked so close together they appear solid and other times the space is more like steps progressing up the inside of the crystal. Phantoms can be used to go through your past, your own layers, to understand that everything that happens is part of your life, your story and your beauty. It can be on a larger scale too, like the Earth’s growth recorded for you to access. Inner beauty is revealed through lack of growth, halted progression and seeming trouble. Layers of stuff are placed upon you, and then once you grow past the stuff, your most magnificent self is the culmination of all the stops and starts! You are magnificent because of your past. Embrace it and step out for all to see. Phantoms teach you about the process of life and growth, and how to overcome obstacles to see life as a wondrous journey. Phantom quartz, because of their many inclusions, works with all chakras of the body.
