The Egyptians saw the Egyptian scarab (Scarabaeus sacer) as a symbol of renewal and rebirth. The beetle was associated closely with the sun god because scarabs roll large balls of dung in which to lay their eggs, a behavior that the Egyptians thought resembled the progression of the sun through the sky from east to west. Its young were hatched from this ball, and this event was seen as an act of spontaneous self-creation, giving the beetle an even stronger association with the sun god’s creative force. The connection between the beetle and the sun was so close that the young sun god was thought to be reborn in the form of a winged scarab beetle every morning at sunrise. As this young sun god, known as Khepri, rose in the sky, he brought light and life to the land.
The quartz naturally grows in a prismatic form, its large facets reflecting the light.
Apofolytte Holistic Properties
Apophyllite is calming and tranquil, and encourages honesty to self and others. It is excellent in stressful situations, and for clearing negative thought patterns.
A single natural pyramid of apophyllite can energetically clear a room. It is a wonderful transmitter of energy, and enhances vision and healing work – so much so that many Reiki practitioners refer to it as the “Reiki Stone”
