Spirit Quartz (also known as pineapple quartz or cactus quartz) comes from South Africa. It is predomimantly amethyst, although can also be found in "white" and "citrine" forms - the colouring depends on the amounts and types of iron trace minerals. The form is identified by a central crystal, seen at the cut-off base and termination, which is surrounded by multiple terminated smaller crystals, like those found in geodes or drusy cavities. Some specimens are single crystals but most are varying sized clusters or 2 or more crystals, as this crystal tends to form in beds. It has a high and responsive energy that is broadcast out around the crystal in all directions, as evidenced by its growth. It exudes a sweet and gentle energy that is harmonising to the energy centres and bodies. This stone is ideal for use in a healing or meditation space, or as an "altar" crystal.
