This variety of quartz is found in only one place in Brazil. It is called Lithium Quartz, because these stones are known to contain Lithium, but they may also contain other minerals included in the quartz, other than lithium.
This is why some stones have lighter or darker colors than others, as minerals such as manganese, aluminum, iron and kaolinite may be present in some stones.

From there it will flow into all of the areas nearby, stimulating the brain with a gentle yet easily felt energy.
This is a sweet beautiful energy, calming and soothing yet strong enough that you easily feel it moving. From the third eye it then makes its way up into the higher chakras.
