I was fascinated to discover that Madagascan Candle and Celestial Quartz have been renamed ‘Atlantean Lovestars’. What a brilliant name! Even though it may add to the ongoing confusion about crystal names. But there’s so much confusion about these two crystals already that it may actually clarify things. Bringing them into an energetic synergy. I have always experienced them as two identifiably different vibrations, similar but not quite the same (see below).
The new name tallies with what I’ve found when working with them in past life workshops. I’ve used the two interchangeably with excellent results – suiting different personal frequencies and needs. It also goes to show that putting things in writing too soon can curtail the properties, which tend to reveal themselves over a long period of working with the crystal. I often wish I could add to the properties in the Crystal Bibles but this isn’t possible. These two crystals both have a strong connection to Atlantis and invoke memories of that ancient civilisation – and the associated gifts and challenges. It was a period that started out with humankind being ‘lightly clothed in skin’. I can’t remember who said that to me way back in the 70s. It probably came from my mentor Christine Hartley. It perfectly encapsulates the higher vibration of the physical and etheric bodies at the beginning of Atlantis. They were much less dense than today. The energy fields were more permeable and amenable to expressing high frequency energies on earth.
An Atlantean legacy
Apparently Candle and Celestial Quartz have been renamed ‘Lovestars’ because, legend says, they were given as heart gifts in Atlantis to true loves. They are also a form of lightbrary, which is why they work so well for past life seeing. A lightbrary has smaller crystals growing along the sides or around the base of the core crystal, which is an ‘enlightened teacher’ and the holder of esoteric knowledge. Holding one is rather like going to a spiritual library for metaphysical studies.
In a book I read ages ago and can’t now lay my hands on (have you ever put ‘Atlantis’ into the Amazon search engine? It produces a staggering number of titles!), it was suggested that Madagascar was part of the ancient continent of Atlantis, which had moved around the earth to its present position due to plate tectonics. Given the amount of fabulous stones that are found there, it wouldn’t surprise me. Credit: Author -Judy Hall
