History/Mythology: Most Lodolite found comes out of one area in Brazil.  Lodo or Loda is roughly translated from Brazilian to mean mud and refers to the ‘mud’ look of the inclusions inside the stone, this also holds true in the Greek Language where it means ‘muddy stone’.  I have seen various imitation stones coming out of Asia lately that are varying degrees of make quality so please by from a trusted dealer.

Garden Quart is a stone of journey and will allow you to heal and release past issue/traumas that are holding you back so that you can progress forward on your own path unimpeded by those blockages.  It is particularly good at clearing past life or early childhood traumas that are causes you to hold fear and stress in current day situations.  It allows you to see inside yourself and realize your own worth and that you are a wonderful unique being and that you are as unique as each ‘landscape/garden’ with the stones.  It is a great stone to use if you are planning any type of Shamanic journey whether it be physical, emotional or spiritual.  It has a very soothing vibration that enhances your connection with higher beings particularly your spirit guides and animal guides.  Please be aware due to the uniqueness of these stone the properties held within can vary slightly depending on what the inclusions are, so pick and use the stone that calls out to you as it will be the one meant to be with you. Lodolite also holds all of the properties of Phantom or Ghost Quartz and can assist you in accessing the Akashic Records.
