Agape Crystals contain the energies of many different minerals, the seven most common being Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Smokey Quartz, Cacoxenite, Rutile, Lepidocrocite and Goethite combined. The word "AGAPE" comes from the Greek word meaning "an out-pouring of unconditional love". After many years of cutting, polishing and faceting these crystals, we have also discovered some rare crystals that have exhibited patches of Citrine, inclusions of Hematite, Mica, Clevelandite and Pyrite for a total of twelve possible inclusions. Because of their rarity, many of these have found a treasured place in our collection. Generally speaking though, the more minerals that are visible, the more valued the stone, whether natural, polished or faceted. In addition, all of our Agape Crystals and the jewelry made from them have been bathed in the waters of a beautiful crystal clear, spring-fed waters in our beloved Ouachita National Forest.
The "brotherhood" of minerals contained within these crystals is not unlike our brothers and sisters of our Native American Medicine Wheel, combining and sharing their energies and gifts with their human companions to help them on their paths to spiritual enlightenment and completion. These phenomenal crystals never need clearing or cleansing and can exhibit all the formations, traits and habits of Rock Crystal. They can be found only in Espirito Santo (meaning Holy Spirit) Brazil and come from an area there which is well known for its many varieties of included Quartz and other gemstones. When rotated within our fingers with light upon them, the tiny rainbows created by all the mineral inclusions, sometimes exhibit a "flambeau" effect. Like a magnificent display of "fireworks" encased in stone, they are reminiscent of the energy emissions of Aurora Borealis. Agape Crystal vibrates to the master number 11, the most intuitive of all numbers, representing illumination and deep insight, as well as spiritual harmony.
