Raven's CUMBERLANDITE Hand Carved Crystal SkullRaven's Roost
Weight 125 grams
Here is an extremely rare offering within the crystal skull world! This beautiful skull has been hand carved from ultra-rare Cumberlandite! It is the U.S. state of Rhode Island's official state rock. It is only found in concentrations on a four-acre lot known as Iron Rock Hill in Blackstone Valley, Cumberland, and in traces scattered throughout the Narragansett Bay watershed.
This intriguing stone is absolutely ancient, it formed over 1.5 Billion years ago during a volcanic eruption which mixed 24 different minerals together with molten rock. As this material cooled, it formed a slightly magnetic rock that is iron rich. These extremely rare rocks were considered sacred by the local Nipmuck Indians. During the Revolutionary War, Cumberlandite was used to make cannons, weapons and farm tools. Cannons made of Cumberlandite were also used in the siege of Louisberg in 1745. It has been reported to be used as early as 1703, when it was mixed with iron ore from Cranston, Rhode Island. Along with Iron, Cumberlandite also possesses a relatively high level of Titanium. It is a truly remarkable, historically significant material.
We have only a very few of these to offer so if this stone resonates with you, I suggest not hesitating or else risk disappointment.
This skull measures 2.25 inches long and weighs in at precisely 125 grams. It exhibits intricately detailed realism in both shape and features, including Raven's trademark hollowed out cheekbones and jaw. A nice glossy polish gives the perfect finish, making this skull a pleasure in the hands and a delight for the eyes!
Carved stone skulls like this one make great metaphysical aids, as they combine the energies of the individual stone with the powerful Symbol of the Skull.
Metaphysically, the Symbol of the Skull represents The Higher Mind. To attain the higher mind of spiritual awareness and psychic ability we must be released from the thrall of the lower cognitive mind. The Skull also symbolizes Change, which is truly the great healer of all situations, conditions, and troubles. Without Change in our lives, we do not spiritually grow.
In many cultures around the world, the Skull is seen as the House of the Soul and revered because of its tremendous importance to us as human beings.
It is my experience that working with a Crystal Skull is a multi-dimensional journey of discovery, enlightenment, and growth. They can be excellent catalysts for Healing, Dreamwork, Meditation, Past Life Recall, Spiritualism and Self-Improvement on many levels. Anyone with an interest in Metaphysics should have a Crystal Skull!
Metaphysically, Cumberlandite is The Stone of Intention, Perseverance, and Fearlessness. It projects a highly protective energy, deflecting negative energies and uninvited entities with ease. Cumberlandite possesses a serious demeanor which is fully capable of grounding the stones keeper, fortifying our intentions and resolve, and keeping us shielded from that which may wish to bring us harm. A very helpful ally to have on hand for when the going gets tough!
Cumberlandite vibrates to the numbers 1 and 8, it is associated with Virgo and Capricorn.
