Lemurian Seed Crystals:
Teachers of Oneness

While at a gem and mineral show in May, 2001, I saw quartz points described as "Lemurian Seed Crystals." I had heard mention of these before and not paid much attention. Although I am generally cautious about "newly-discovered crystals" from ancient civilizations, Joyce and I were both strongly attracted to these crystals.

We asked the man selling them to tell us about them. They were found in Brazil in late 1999 or early 2000 by people who were mining for quartz. Usually, quartz points are found in the form of clusters. The Lemurian seed crystals drew the miners' attention because they were lying in a separate bed of sand, unattached to clusters.

Unusual as this is, the appearance of these crystals is even more striking. They are not shiny, but have almost a frosted appearance, and many had a pink glow. Their most distinctive feature is the distinct horizontal striations running up one or more sides of the sides.

I've never seen quartz points like these. Nor have I experienced an energy quite like theirs. Joyce and I decided to choose two for ourselves, then walk around the show and see how they felt. (This is not the ideal way to get to know a new crystal, but we felt certain we could sense enough to know whether we wanted to buy some for Beyond the Rainbow.)

I experienced a brief feeling of disconnection, almost as I were being unplugged while a rewiring process took place. After that, I felt calm and happy. Though I'd been on my feet for four hours after a two-and-half hour drive, I felt energized and strongly connected to universal life force energy. Without knowing the details, I knew these crystals were very powerful and important.


Although I have read various interpretations about both the nature and location of this advanced civilization, it is generally believed that about 12 million years ago there existed an advanced civilization somewhere between the American continent and Australia. Some believe Lemuria preceded Atlantis; others believe they co-existed and that perhaps the Atlanteans conquered the Lemurians. Whereas Atlantis was technologically advanced and warlike in nature, Lemuria was peaceful and highly developed spiritually.

Katrina Raphaell (author of the Crystal Trilogy and one of the most widely respected crystal teachers and healers) gathered with several others on Kauai to attune with six Lemurian seed crystals. While doing so, they connected with a group of powerful nonphysical beings who communicated the meaning of these crystals.

During the last days of Lemuria, it was decided to plant seed crystals programmed to transmit a message of oneness. Having seeded the crystals, the Lemurians, it is believed, left this planet for other star systems. Others went into inner earth (while maintaining telepathic connection with those in other parts of the galaxy), where they continue to care for the earth and the seed crystals now surfacing.

The crystals are thus connected to inner earth, the earth's surface, and the stars, and serve as links to these various magnetic fields. On the individual level, each seed crystal is energetically connected to all other seed crystals.

This connection is a living example of the message of the Lemurian seed crystals. They teach us how to be both individuals and integral parts of the cosmic design, that all beings are equal. They also help us how, as physical beings, to maintain our connection with our spiritual source.

The striations, which to some observers have the appearance of being lasered onto the crystals, contain this knowledge. Some ways to work with them are to hold one of the striated sides of the crystal to the third eye (between and above the other two). Another is to rub the index finger of your non-dominant hand over the ridges.

I also find it very helpful to sleep holding one. When I've done this, I not only sleep very well but have dreams that seem to be dissolving energy blockages.

In addition, I recommend using one in chakra balancing. To do this, put a crystal on each chakra and rotate the Lemurian seed crystal in a circle over each stone.

See the article on the chakras on the Beyond the Rainbow web site.

In the coming days, we will be learning more about these crystals and how best to work with them. I also believe new deposits will be discovered all over the world.

I believe that crystals are discovered not only when the need for them is greatest, but when humans have reached an evolutionary stage when they are most receptive to them. To me, the discovery of Lemurian seed crystals signals a new level of awareness on the part of humankind.
