While trippin' through South Africa, literally minutes before I was leaving for my flight back home I found this great Gem and Mineral Shop! This shop had a great selection of crystals and gemstones and unfortunately the Icelandic Spar, which I had planned on going to Iceland to find! What was unique to South Africa was their "Spirit Quartz" sometimes called Cactus Quartz or Porcupine Quartz, it is found only in the Magaliesberg Mountain region of South Africa, first appearing around 2001. *https://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/spirit-quartz
Spirit Quartz is a crystal of Harmony and Alignment. It takes all the crystal energies of the main stone and amplifies them over and over again in all the tiny points, each reflecting light back and forth to one another so all can bathe in the combined radiance of the whole.
