Tantric Twin Quartz

Unpolished Doubly Sided Quartz.

The Tantric Twin Quartz are points that have grown together and almost parallel.

The doubly sided quartz has a point on each side, can be created by nature itself or polished.

 

SHUNGITE

shungite_tumbled_cristalljoia     DONUT_SHUNGITE_CRISTALLJOIA     shungite_rough_cristalljoia

Composed of fullerenes that are the third most stable form of carbon, after diamond and graphite, it is very light fossil carbon that has a great structural beauty. It is one of the oldest organic earth minerals that agglutinates almost all of the elements of Mendeleïev's table and with an electric superconductivity, superior to that of gold. Also called "the intelligent stone or the black hole" for its properties of electromagnetic attraction. Its name comes from the Russian zone from where it is extracted, Shunga, Karelia Russia.

CURIOSITIES:

Yes, there is a cauldron of gold at the end of the rainbow.

calder_or_150

The rainbow is light that comes out of the sun, and when passing through the drops of water it decomposes in colors, reaching our retina seeing the rainbow.

rainbow_150

on the other hand, it is estimated that the abundance of gold in the sun is 0.3 parts per trillion, which would correspond to 1,200,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg gold,

guinyar_150

so then, at the end of the rainbow there is a cauldron of gold, although it's impossible for us to collect your coins.

CURIOSITIES:

A new element would open a new row in the periodic table of the elements.

table_350

Japanese scientists would be on the verge of finding a new element (the number 119 for its number of protons) that would innaugurate the eighth row of the periodic table, this element would receive the name of ununennium.

explosion-250

Using a particle accelerator, they intend to shoot beams of vadium against curium, this would simulate a cosmic cataclysm, a fundamental requirement for the creation of the element.

CURIOSITIES:

Quartz crystals may be protecting us from the sun.

crystals-100

According to a study by the "Tokyo Institute of Technology", the formation of silicon dioxide crystals (the same composition of quartz) would provide the energy that feeds the magnetic field of planet Earth.

magnetic_200

In turn, it is known that large explosions occur in the sun generating solar storms, that is, clouds of gas that propagate through space.

sun-200

However, thanks to the magnetic field of the planet Earth we are protected from these gas clouds. Although in certain cases, can cross the shell of the magnetic field and generate the beautiful northern or austral lights or provoke interruptions in communications.

CURIOSITIES:

¿Predicting volcanic eruptions through the study of crystals?

earth-175

A research team from the University of Queensland led by Teresa Ubide is studying the possibility of predicting new volcanic eruptions.

hourglass_125

When the magma flows through the subsoil it causes reactions in certain components creating crystals. In these crystals are records of their environment, as rings reflecting the presence of nearby magma.

annual-rings-125

The research team estimates that when the magma is 30 km. of the surface, with a probability of 90% there is an eruption in a matter of weeks.

CURIOSITIES:

Cave of giant crystals (up to 11 meters)

crystals-100silhouette-3102535_1280

300 meters below the Naica mountain in the Chihuahuan Desert is a cave with some of the largest crystals ever found.

coal-150

They are gypsum crystals that can measure up to 11 meters and weigh 55 tons.

anvil-150

The crystals grew up to these measurements because they were submerged in water rich in certain minerals in a narrow and stable temperature range. The anhydrite that was abundant in the water was transformed into gypsum forming these magnificent crystals.

CURIOSITIES:

It has been discovered the composition of glass in objects from more than 4,000 years ago from the Chogha-Zanbil temple (Iran) thanks to the Alba Synchrotron.

temple-150

An Iranian team went to the Alba Synchrotron (UAB, Cerdanyola del Vallès), to discover the composition of various objects withf more than 4,000 years old.

container_250

The synchrotron light has allowed to obtain diffraction patterns, from which it has been possible to deduce the exact composition of the objects.

microscope-100

Specifically, they have been able to deduce that the glass contains: calcite, cristobalite, gypsum, wollastonite and zeolite A.

CURIOSITIES:

The mountain that produces eggs every 30 years

cliff-2026270_1280

The mountain of Chan Da Ya in China produces oval stones in the form of giant eggs every 30 years.

egg-2025633_1280

The reason is that "the eggs" were formed 500 million years ago in the Cambrian, while the cliff is calcareous and undergoes an erosion process at different rates.
