Purple Phantom Quartz Beads
Purple Phantom Quartz - A spooky name makes sense for this amethyst cousin! Purple Phantom Quartz gemstone beads are a great marriage of the amethyst purple you know and love, with clear, citrine yellow, and amber orange inclusions.
Purple Phantom Quartz is also known as Amethyst Cacoxenite. The name Cacoxenite comes from the Latin for “evil” and “guest.” This negative-naming refers specifically to the presence of Cacoxenite in iron ores used for smelting, undesirably weakening the finished metals. Purple Phantom Quartz is unique in how the cacoxenite crystals form within host quartzes. These crystal inclusions usually appear in strands and tufts that are yellow, amber, and brown in color. Purple Phantom Quartz is often found in the Czech Republic, but can be found all around the world.
Metaphysically, Cacoxenite crystals are said to promote spiritual awareness and guidance in finding a positive path.
