Brandberg – the quartz crystals, the smoky quartz crystals, the amethyst crystals, and always a combination of the three – named for the soaring mass of granite known as “The Brandberg,” Namibia’s highest mountain located in Damaraland in the northwest Namib Desert near the coast. The Brandberg is considered sacred, a spiritual site of great significance to the San (Bushmen) tribes who sheltered there and rendered over 48,000 paintings and engravings within its caves and overhanging rocks. Brandberg crystals are found only in the Brandberg area and nearby Goboboseb Mountains, an inhospitable and dry section of the Namib, the world’s oldest desert.Brandberg Quartz forms as clusters of pyramids on a geode base, as tall prismatic crystals, short stubby crystals, drusy aggregates, and in massive form. It occurs as colourless crystal or in various shades and mixtures of purple, brown, grey, or yellow, and may be translucent with milky “inner worlds” to completely transparent. Each crystal is unique, often containing exceptional phantoms (ghosted image of a crystal within a crystal), enhydros (air bubbles in water-filled chambers), rainbows, pyramidal “windows,” or with inclusive flecks of Lepidocrocite, Goethite or even Epidote. Very rarely, Brandbergs can be found with solid inclusions trapped in water.
Regardless of colour, each Brandberg crystal carries and combines the resonance of Amethyst, Smoky and Clear Quartz within its formation, and each brings its unique assistance to the whole:
Amethyst Brandberg engenders unconditional love and Divinity at the centre of the universe. It brings profound healing, especially in matters of the heart. It is excellent for dissolving past-life heartbreak or soul-contracts, and frees one to manifest a partner who supports one in their fullness and spiritual being. Brandberg Amethyst is a master healer, speeding recovery from illness or injury, providing aid in overcoming harmful addictions, and restoring balance, health and vitality to the system. Amethyst protects against psychic attack, paranormal harm or ill-wishing, and returns the energy back to the universe after being transformed into positive, loving energy. Amethyst is a wonderful talisman for use in the creative arts, especially in darker shades. It assists endeavours where new, original results need to be created using tools and methods of the past. It is often used as the Artist’s Stone, the Composer’s Stone, the Inventor’s, Poet’s and Painter’s Stones. Keep an Amethyst crystal or cluster in the area to focus and amplify the creative elements of the Universal Life Force. Excellent crystal for work with spirit guide/guardian.
Clear Brandberg works on multi-dimensional levels, reconnecting one to the purity of their being. It is a powerful healing and energy amplifier, attuned to the specific requirements of the user and takes one’s energy to the most perfect state possible. Brandberg Quartz crystal is attuned to the white flame of pure consciousness, emanating infinite compassion and is the perfect crystal tool to use for deep soul healing and forgiveness. Brandberg Quartz is an effective tool to aid healing work on all levels, rapidly linking to multi-dimensions and assisting in looking inward or climbing the vibrational ascension ladder. Brandberg Quartz facilitates conscious awareness when travelling to dimensions and instils brainwave combinations that enhance meditation, regression, and auric healing. It is a brilliant crystal for astral projection.
Smoky Brandberg is an ideal stone for deep Earth healing, with a marvellous energy for restoring the earth grid back to a more perfect state and realigning its chakra and meridian systems. It cleanses and re-attaches one’s cosmic anchor for gaining access to past-life knowledge and progression, and in understanding one’s current situation as “exactly right” for spiritual evolution in this life. Smoky Brandberg facilitates understanding the gifts you seek. It assists in facing the remainder of your current life with equanimity and joy knowing it is right for your spiritual growth. Brandberg crystals with a visible blend of Amethyst and Smoky Quartz, either as phantoms or body colour, are the finest tools for removing implants, attachments, spirit possession, or mental influences. It is particularly supportive for conscious transformation or transition, especially through death.
We have offered crystals in the past, however, these won’t be sold as they are my personal working crystals. I highly recommend buying Brandberg crystals if you have not done already for they are excellent for all they claim they can do. Better still, using a clear quartz with any of the others for a particular purpose gives much more energy to the other crystals and boosts the properties they give exponentially. Right out of the box you’ll know you have something quite special in your hands!
