"You are bidding on rare Cacoxenite in Amethyst - It exhibits brilliant Golden Cacoxenite Crystals in deep, purple amethyst quartz with lepidocrosite, hematite and goethite. There is also Golden Citrine Quartz near the center occasionally visible when backlit. This is especially prominent when cut across (perpendicular to) the “C” Axis.

This material came from the now world-famous location for Cacoxenite in Amethyst where originally discovered in Fundão and was mined during the late 60’s thru early 70’s. This location was flooded underground when a water channel was accidentally struck during mining activities in the early 70’s. There has been no access to the deposit since then and will not be producing anymore of the original material.

These are not a man-made or are they heat-treated in any way. They are not from one of the “New” secondary discoveries made since the Fundão find - this is the real deal right out of the ground from the original mine in Espirito Santos, Brazil

Metaphysical: Also known as Super Seven, Melody's Stone and Sacred Seven, is a truly unique stone which contains all the energies of Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Cacoxenite, Rutile, Goethite and Lepidocrocite combined. Naturally formed Citrine and Ametrine also are present in many of the pieces from this location.

And, rarely, once in a while crystals may also have Phantoms of Hematite, Goethite or Chlorite as well as the typical growth patterns of the Amethyst itself which will form Phantoms due to different amounts of the material responsible for coloration/deposition of surface contaminants being present during each layers' growth cycle.

This "flambeau" stone (displaying what appear to be tiny flames of fire) exhibits a phenomenon often referred to as St. Elmo's Fire, or the electro-magnetic emissions sometimes seen during an electric storm above a spire or the mast of a ship. (Saint Elmo is the patron saint of sailors.) Occasionally, Cacoxenite in Amethyst is also said to exhibit a display resembling the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights.

Cacoxenite in Amethyst is one of the few stones that retains its clarity and energy and never needs cleansing or energizing. Even though each stone may not visually show each mineral, it has been said that all pieces carry the energy of all seven minerals.

It is a powerful stone for healing the earth, mind body and spirit disease. The very nature of the stone means that it is not associated with any one chakra; instead it is fantastic at healing, balancing and energizing all seven charkras, said to be the basis for the trademark name Super Seven).

In addition to the properties of each individual mineral contained within the stone, Cacoxenite in Amethyst is a wonderful companion for those who are seeking to dispense with old ways of thinking and acting which do not allow the ways of "peace and harmony" to rule in their life. Said to represent the universal "brotherhood" of humanity, all configurations have also been of tremendous assistance in awakening, stimulating, and developing psychic abilities, including telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience. Cacoxenite in Amethyst is a wonderful gift from Mother Earth which can benefit everyone. It also assists us in developing our gifts and abilities used in conjunction with the healing and ascension of Earth Mother and all her inhabitants. Cacoxenite in Amethyst is especially good for those who may be experiencing empathetic feelings with Mother Earth, or are dealing with the results of the "earth changes" which have already begun and are progressing rapidly now."
