The Magical Powers of the Mexican Cantera Fire Opal

Posted by on Sep 29, 2020 in Crystals, Spiritual Healing | 0 comments

While spending the afternoon exploring Joshua Tree, I couldn’t resist visiting the popular Joshua Tree Rock Shop. Knowing that it would be a little pricey based on the location, I ended up finding a unique hidden treasure that was priced just right – the Mexican Cantera Fire Opal. This crystal is a master healer, and quite rare to find. Especially with rainbow hues. It is usually found in specialty gem stores. Priced at just $20 for a thumbnail-sized gem, I was so excited to add it to my crystal collection. There are a couple of different types of fire opals, but this one is mined in the Mexican states of Queretaro (my favorite state), Hidalgo, Guerrero, Michoacan, Jalisco, Chihuahua, and San Luis Potosi. It is a national gemstone treasure in Mexico. This stone has magical powers and helps to...

Amphibole Quartz aka Angel Phantom Quartz

When driving along the coast with a friend, we decided to see if there was a crystal store in town. We were passing through Carlsbad and noticed that there was a crystal shop that we had not yet visited, so we made a quick stop to check it out. After learning that it was in the heart of Carlsbad Village, we both had the perception that it would be more of a boutique store, and that the prices would be super high. To our surprise, our perception was wrong, and we ended up discovering one of the biggest hidden gems in California. We ended up spending a couple of hours exploring the unique collection of crystals that the owner had, and one of my favorites that I was extremely drawn to was the Amphibole Quartz aka Angel Phantom Quartz....
