Phantoms are a wonderful, rare, and beautiful find, but to see them stacked so abundantly in these towers is purely magical! These were the absolute best of the best at the last Denver gem show, each one hand-selected by me for the shop! I only pick pieces that I would keep in my own personal collection, and these phantom towers are no exception!
WHAT ARE PHANTOMS?
Phantoms are the outline of the crystal’s past self, an interruption in its growth marked by the presence of minerals. The name “phantom” is given to this beautiful quartz formation because they are the outlines of the crystal, frozen in time, from thousands, tens of thousands, or millions of years ago when these crystals began forming. The phantom within a quartz appears to be the crystal’s echo, and will mirror the growth of the current point. Metaphysically speaking, Phantoms are incredibly powerful healing tools for shadow work, uncovering deep seated traumas, getting to the heart of the matter, and very deep, emotional healing. Phantoms are powerful crystal healing allies, and when combined with the properties of the minerals (such as chlorite, kaolinite and others) speak to the possibility of healing our hearts and opening it up to the greatest possible love.
This listing is for the exact Phantom Quartz Tower pictured. It measures 1.5 inches tall and has dozens of gorgeous phantoms!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
