Lemurian Seed Crystals are a special variety of Clear Quartz. They come from the Diamantina region of Brazil, a locality famous for its long, tapered "laser wand" crystals. The Lemurians are different in structure, displaying ladder-like grooves crossing the bodies of the crystals and very clear interiors. On many of these crystals, there is a reddish pink tinge caused by a light, transparent coating of iron oxide.
The name given to these lovely specimens comes from "Lemuria". Lemuria is the name of a fabled civilization believed to have sunk beneath the Atlantic Ocean, near the Mediterranean sea, many thousands of years ago. The volcanos of Hawaii and other Polynesian islands are thought by some to be the tops of the ancient Lemurian mountains. Lemuria is remembered as a civilization with a different kind of conciousness - much more centered upon the emotional and spiritual dimensions than is our mentally based modern world.
