Lemurian Seed Crystals also known as Lemurian Quartz are highly sought after but often misidentified. Learn what they are, how they were discovered and their meaning. Plus, how to identify the REAL thing in my buyers guide…
The Discovery of Lemurian Seed Crystals
I was told the original Lemurian Seed Crystals were discovered at a Mountain in Brazil around the turn of the millenium. These crystals were mostly clear Quartz but a few were pink. They stood out by their surface because it was covered in striations (etched lines). All the crystals were laid flat in the Earth, not attached to any other minerals or rocks.
This discovery soon became the stuff of legends and all I can tell you is how I originally heard the story. I did see photos about 10 years ago of someone who had been to 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 they 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 or Mu is believed to have been an Island paradise that once existed in the Pacific Ocean. This knowledge reaches us from several Pacific cultures and traditions. Some say they descended from these people. The story became very popular with esoteric writers, secret societies and mediums in the west during the 1800’s.
In a story that sounds similar to Atlantis, legends say Lemuria sank below the waves. But, 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 and Meaning of Lemurian Seed Crystals:
These are very spiritual crystals and have a high vibration energy. Lemurian Seed Crystals hold Lemurian energies and historic 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.
Lemurian Seeds are cleansing and work with the Crown and Soul Star Chakras. You can learn more about the Soul Star Chakra in my Chakra book. These ancient 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. I have also found them to be very useful and powerful in my crystal grids.
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 crystals which are not true Lemurians in my opinion. The confusion seems to happen because of 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 and messages 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.
Take a good look at the original Lemurian Seed Crystals from Brazil (see my pics above and video below). 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.
These days with Lemurian Seeds being found in other parts of Brazil and the world there are more crystals with a more shiny surface. They still have the Akashic Lines on all sides but not much of a frosted look. These crystals are often very clear and have a bright gleaming quality.
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. Are you unsure that a crystal you purchased as a Lemurian Seed is genuine? Or you are considering buying one? I have created a check list for you below to help:
Genuine Lemurian Seed Crystals:
1. They have etched striations (Akashic Lines) on all side facets.
2. Each facet should be filled or nearly filled with Akashic lines.
3. They may have a frosted look (or gleaming brightness).
4. You should be able to feel most of the lines with your fingers, like grooves.
5. The crystal points look noticeably different placed next to regular clear Quartz.
6. Lemurians are very clear inside, any milkyness is just the surface texture.
7. Many (but not all) crystals taper towards the tip and have small faces. This is a Laser Wand formation.
8. Lemurian Seed Crystal Clusters are very rare, expect very high prices for the real thing.
Identifying Lemurian Crystals Yourself (Please Read)
The reason I wrote this article was because I was getting too many questions about identifying Lemurians. I created this detailed guide to help you identify these crystals for yourself. So, please do not ask me to identify them for you. This article is everything I have to say on this topic, with photos and videos to help you. I don’t think you will find a more detailed guide.
If you are still not sure, perhaps someone else online will be able to help you. The purpose in my blog posts is to empower you so you are not reliant on me or anyone else.
My 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. Lemurian Seed crystals are more expensive than ever and the price is likely to rise.
Seller’s may also misidentify them. It’s common for suppliers to give incorrect information to sellers. 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 is the real thing.
You may have seen polished crystals, beads, cut gemstones and crystal balls being sold as Lemurian Quartz. This is a bit of a 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. 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 more 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.
But Where Can I Buy Genuine Lemurian Seed Crystals?
When a crystal is rare there is no consistant source for them. There really is no insider website or special shop I can direct you to. Sellers buy them in batches and when they go, they go. Sources change constantly, so keep an eye out. If you’re meant to work with one, you will find it but not always straight away.
You can find them on good crystal websites, gem shows and on Etsy. Buy from a reputable seller and look at the photos carefully if buying online. It is best if you can see all the side facets in multiple photos. You could always privately message them and ask about the lines or ask to see more photos.
Please comment below if you find a place to get genuine Lemurian Seed crystals! I want to hear from buyers only, no seller self-promotion please. (Please keep any questions you have on topic if you want a response).
