Phantom crystal is a variety of quartz. It is a crystal or mineral deposit within a crystal. Each crystal exhibits the outlines of many other smaller crystals, which are called phantoms. Phantoms are created when a crystal growth is interrupted and then begins to form again. The original minerals get washed away, leaving only the crystal to grow afterward.
Phantoms come in various colours of grey, red, green, white, and amethyst. They can be found in Brazil, Switzerland, Madagascar, Austria and the US.
Phantom quartz crystals are also known as ghost, spectre and shadow crystals. They usually occur in rock crystal, but are also found in citrine, amethyst and smoky quartz. Rock crystal is a transparent and colourless quartz.
Phantom quartz crystal shapes can sometimes be seen in the interior of quartz crystals. These phantoms are usually composed of other minerals such as hematite, chlorite or goethite and are sometimes composed of other varieties of quartz such as smoky quartz, milky quartz and amethyst.
Phantoms are believed to bring great healing and facilitate inner growth by bringing great transformation into one’s higher self. Used for meditation, balance, and aligning the chakras. The phantoms within a crystal are told to represent the many phases we experience in our lives just as the crystal has encountered during its evolution.
