Lemurian Seed Crystals aka Lemurian Quartz are highly sought after but often misidentified. Learn what they are, how they were discovered, their meaning and how to identify the REAL thing in my buyers guide.
The Discovery of Lemurian Seed Crystals
The original Lemurian Seed Crystals were discovered at a Mountain in Brazil around the turn of the millenium. These mostly clear Quartz crystals with a few pink were marked out by their surface which was covered in striations (etched lines). All the crystals were laid flat in the Earth, not attached to any other minerals or rocks. They also did not seem to grow in clusters like most Quartz.
This discovery soon become the stuff of legends and all I can tell you is how I originally heard the story. I did see photos 10 years ago of someone who had been to one of the mines and you could see layers of the crystals in the red Earth.
Many Psychics and Crystal Healers felt these newly discovered crystals had a strong Lemurian energy
Some said that not only were they programmed with information from Lemuria but that there were buried in the Earth by the Lemurians themselves.
News of these crystals spread fast and soon two other Mines in the area turned up more of the same looking crystals. Over the years other locations around the World began finding what looked like Lemurian Seed crystals. There were also other colours like Golden Lemurian Seeds.
Lemuria is believed to have been an Island which once existed in the Pacific Ocean. This knowledge reaches us from several Pacific cultures and traditions. Some say they descended from these people. In a story that sounds similar to Atlantis, legends say Lemuria sank below the waves. Though some of its people escaped just in time. Many people feel the Lemurians were a deeply spiritual and psychic tribal culture. If you don’t know if you believe in Lemuria, try to see it more as a symbolic concept or a type of energy.
The Properties of Lemurian Seeds:
These are very spiritual crystals with a high vibration energy. Lemurian Seed Crystals hold Lemurian energies and information for those that are called to work with them. They anchor light and powerful energy making them useful in healing and all kinds of spiritual work or practices. Lemurian Seeds are cleansing and work with the Crown and Soul Star Chakras (More info about the Soul Star Chakra in my book). These crystals activate and connect you with all the Higher Chakras above the Crown Chakra. This makes them a good crystal for those on the spiritual path.
How To Identify Lemurian Seed Crystals
Over the years I have seen some people selling crystals as Lemurian Seeds which I think are not. I also regularly see people identify crystals as Lemurian Seeds which are not true Lemurians in my opinion. The confusion seems to come from the markings.
These striations are not exclusive to Lemurian Seed Crystals. You can see these lines on many Quartz Crystals and they were found on crystals long before the discovery of Lemurian Seeds.
Some call these bar code like striations ‘Lemurian Lines’ and they can indicate that a crystal has Lemurian energy or records. This may be where the confusion starts. It is one of the reasons I prefer to call these markings ‘Akashic Lines’ not Lemurian Lines. They can hold all types of information from many ancient cultures and civilizations. Genuine Lemurian Seeds have Akashic Lines on all six side facets. The faces at the termination point are usually smooth.
If you look at the original Lemurian Seed Crystals from Brazil (see my pics) you will notice the lines are deep, very noticeable and create a frosted surface. Even with the original Lemurian Seed Crystals some facets will have lighter markings or the odd smooth patch though. If the lines are very light on all the sides it is not a true Lemurian but of course holds ancient knowledge.
I do not think that Lemurian Seeds have to come from Brazil but some of the best ones I’ve seen do come from there. If you are unsure that a crystal you purchased as a Lemurian Seed is genuine or you are considering buying one I have created a check list below to help you:
Genuine Lemurian Seed Crystals:
They have Striations (Akashic Lines) on all side facets
Each facet should be filled or nearly filled with Akashic lines
They have an obvious frosted look
You can feel the lines with your fingers like grooves
They will look noticeably different next to regular clear Quartz Crystals
Guide to Buying Lemurian Seed Crystals:
Because of the popularity of these crystals I think some sellers have tried to pass off crystals as Lemurian which were not. This is why you need to be sure before you part with any money. Seller’s may also misidentify them and it’s common for sellers buying from suppliers that the supplier gives them the incorrect information to start with. Add to that all the confusion and inaccurate info on the internet… Always cross reference and do not assume that what is sold as a Lemurian Seed or Lemurain Quartz is the real thing.
You may have seen polished crystals, beads, cut gemstones and crystal balls being sold as Lemurian Quartz. This is very risky business. You are going to have to trust that the seller or gem cutter is telling the truth and not trying to make a profit on a regular piece of Quartz. They may have bought it in good faith, but how will you know with no surface markings left?
I have seen a Crystal Skull carved by the World renowned carver Leandro De Souza from a large Lemurian Seed crystal in which he left a section of the crystal unpolished to show the original striations as proof. I would like to see more of this but most people prefer to have the crystals with the Akashic Lines left as they are.
Smaller Lemurian Seeds are affordable considering how special they are but large ones can get quite expensive. I did not spend a fortune on any of my Lemurian Seed crystals which include one rare Pink one from the original location. There is no magic website I can direct you to. These crystals are not always in supply anywhere. People buy them in batches and when they go, they go. You can find them on good crystal websites, Etsy and even Ebay. Look at the photos carefully. If you can see all the sides in multiple photos that is best. If not privately message and ask them about the lines or ask to see more photos.
