Girasol Quartz Free Form with Dendrites
Girasol quartz is a clear to milky white cousin of star rose quartz. It typically has an opalescence or floating glow created by light scattering off microscopic fibers suspended inside it. This optical phenomenon is known as the girasol effect, from the Italian girasole, “turn to the Sun”. Girasol quartz is associated metaphysically with spiritual and personal evolution, energy work modalities like Reiki, and emotional, mental, and physical well being.
Dendrites are a secondary growth pattern, caused by iron or manganese oxides precipitating out of water along cracks in another stone. The name comes from the Greek dendrites, meaning “tree like”, after their resemblance to plants. Dendrites are associated metaphysically with growth, manifestation, and recovery, since they replace the fractures in their host rock with fractal beauty instead.
This extra large free form has a roughly triangular shape with some wave like ripples. It is wider than it is thicker, making two of its sides broader. The girasol quartz is smoky brown with white patches. It has some very well formed dendrites and some fragments. Because the dendrites form along natural fractures, most pieces have a crackled appearance. This particular free form has some pronounced but regular fractures that run diagonally across it. It has some transparent areas but is generally opaque.
This piece measures approximately from 10 1/2" tall, 3 3/4" long, and 4 3/4" across and weigh approximately 9.95 lbs.
