These elegant Quartz Crystals are filled with the energy of Aegerine. They came from Zomba, Malawi in Africa. Aegerine is a very special stone being. It is sleek, dark, flashy in it's shine and very elegant. It looks black in person but a green tone is sometimes revealed. Some of these crystals are covered with or included with Aegerine needles, but whether you can see the Aegerine inclusions or not, all of these crystals have the presence of the Aegerine energy. It is unmistakable. My supplier told me that they were Smoky Quartz Crystals with Aegerine inclusions - but the dark tone feels to me to be coming from the Aegerine, rather than a typical smoky tone. You will see what I mean when you are holding it in your hands. I've never seen any Smoky Quartz Crystal that looks like this - the tone is almost black.
