When we were buying a few of these crystals for the first time we heard the miners speaking in Bemba and they repeated the word Ishiko which means 'Fire Place' owing to the red of a fire. We heard the word as Ishuko and started calling it that. As it turns out Ishuko means lucky so it turned out to be perfect.

We purchased the original pieces even though they were a bit beat up, they showed potential. Although we have not been able to visit Zambia owing to the pandemic we have been able to build on our initial meeting and have been buying these quartz over the past year. We are proud to list them here now. 

According to Judy Hall, Red Phantom Quartz heals the aura and is helpful in business and enhancing financial security. It can also help in overcoming frustration (The Encyclopedia of Crystals page 55, Judy Hall, 2013). You could use that!

Nharo first visited Zambia in 2002 and bought some copper bangles. This was the start of almost 20 years of buying. We have shifted from craft buyers to minerals buyers but are proudly still working with some of the same people we met those days.
