Brandberg History Mythology Information: True Bandberg only comes from the Damaraland Mountains in Namibia Africa which the locals refer to as ‘The Mountain of the Gods’. It is a mixture of Amethyst, Smoky Quartz and Clear Quartz. The properties will vary depending on the dominant colour of the stone. It is said that a Brandberg will pick you and you will receive a very strong calling to take possession of it.
Brandberg Metaphysical Healing Properties Information: Brandberg Quartz is a lovely stone to work with as you have the combination of Amethyst working through your Third Eye and increasing your pineal gland, Clear Quartz amplifying the effect and Smoky Quartz brings through grounding and protection while allowing you to expand. By combining these three stones you have your own unique wonderful stone. It is a stone that allows you to be compassionate in everything you do by enabling you to see other people’s point of view and be more tolerant of those around you and the world in general. This is a stone that helps you to work on all of the planes of existence in order to access all information needed – the emotional, spiritual, and physical.
Brandberg opens you to start appreciating who you are and why you are here and come to the realization that you are unique and perfect and meant to be here and now on your journey. By starting this process in you it takes away any old blockages that you are holding and allows them to be released so that you can find peace, joy and purpose in your life. Affirmation: I am perfect.
