Enhydro Agate with Active Enhydro, Rare Find, Ocean Agate with Moving Water, Earth and Water Elements, Brazil R127

$48.00

This stunning Ocean Agate is from a recent find in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

While it is absolutely beautiful to look at from a glance, it has a secret within that makes it incredibly special and rare: it contains quite a large amount of water inside! The term for this natural phenomenon is "Enhydro" and it occurs when water is trapped inside of an Agate (or crystal) during its millions-of-years development. These Agates have been polished so that one can see the water moving within when backlit (with a flashlight, for instance). In many cases, you can actually hear the water swishing if you shake it next to your ear. This is an incredibly rare phenomenon, as most Enhydro crystals contain only the smallest drop of water. These very special stones bring a balance between the elements of Earth and Water, increased spiritual receptivity and balance. 

ABOUT THIS AGATE
Beautiful aquatic, swirling patterns and translucent layers of orange, red and white adorn this beautiful Agate that is very full of ancient water. This piece possesses very nice translucency when backlit, as pictured and in the video.

We realize the water movement can not easily be seen in the video, but it will be more visible in person. It's just a bit tricky to capture with the backlighting here. We recommend using a strong light (like an iPhone flashlight) to backlight and doing so in a darkened room to fully appreciate the water within.

ENHYDRO AGATE
An Enhydro is the term for the natural phenomenon that occurs when water is trapped inside of an Agate (or crystal, etc) during its million-of-years development. In most cases of Enhydro Quartz (or other crystals), only a droplet of water is included, and it may move if contained within an air pocket. In the case of these Enhydro Agates, there is an ample amount of water included, so much that in most cases one can see it move if the Agate is backlit (with a flashlight), and in some cases even hear it swishing around when shaken.

The Enhydro Agate brings a balance between the elements of the Earth and Water. Agate is a stone with the gentle protective energy of stability and composure, encouraging self-confidence and self-reliance. The inclusion of ancient water, brings an energy of increased empathy and spiritual receptivity. This is a beautiful stone for meditation and deep inner journeying.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be sure the kuripe I ordered will fit?

We have sold many kuripes and tepis over the years and very rarely have had one returned because of fit. Our designs are nearly universal and designed to fit just about everyone.

That said, we always suggest that once you receive your kuripe to "try it on" without hapé first to ensure a good fit. If you find it is not a good fit, please contact us and we'll work out a return or exchange (*please be sure you do this before you actually use it with hapé, because once it has been used, we are not able to accept returns for hygienic reasons).

If you have special sizing requests or you're not sure what you need, just ask and we'll be happy to help you!

I saw your Kuripe listings on another marketplace (Ali Baba, etc) with the same photos from your shop listings. The prices were really cheap! Do you sell there as well?

No! Our only online presence is our Etsy shop and on Instagram and Facebook.

If you're seeing our EXACT listing photos and copy for goods (specifically Kuripes or Tepis) on Ali Baba (or elsewhere), for impossibly low prices, please know THIS IS NOT US and it is a scam.

We work hard to protect our Intellectual Property (photos/copy) but it can be nearly impossible in this day and age with sites like Ali Baba, whose platform makes it difficult to file IP complaints, and which is overrun by scammers.

If you're ever in doubt, please reach out to us here!

One caveat is that we do offer our HanaqPacha sprays to some great independent resellers, so please continue to support them!

Can I return or exchange my item?

We do our best to accommodate all customer requests. We accept returns and exchanges for items that are not as described, do not fit, or are damaged.

We unfortunately cannot accept returns or exchanges for items that the buyer "does not connect with energetically" or "changes their mind" about after the fact. This is unfortunately a risk one takes purchasing metaphysical items online.

We also cannot accept returns or exchanges on products like used kuripes for hygienic reasons, or sprays that have been used/tested.

However if you received a product that does not fit, does not work, is not as described, or is otherwise problematic -- excluding the exemptions we've indicated here -- contact us & we will do our best to rectify it for you.

Are your indigenous items "Fair Trade"?

Yes!!! 100%!

One of the main reasons we began HanaqPacha was to support the communities that have helped us so much with their healing, their culture, their medicines, their hospitality. Now, we work with many artisans in Peru and Brazil (and Indonesia, and beyond)... and do our best to support them, their families and their local economies by purchasing their wares at the most fair prices possible.

Your business helps us expand our global "family" even more, commissioning more unique works by our friends both at home and abroad.

I provided an incorrect address for my order, what do I do?

If you provide an incorrect shipping address & catch it right after ordering, simply message us to let us know. If it’s caught right away there is usually no problem in updating the shipping address before we ship.

However, please understand that you, the buyer, are responsible for providing an accurate shipping address for your order. If you do not provide an accurate shipping address, we cannot be responsible for rerouting a parcel once it has left our hands.

If an item is returned due to an incorrect shipping address that you provided, we can reship, but will need to charge for the reshipping fees. This can get expensive and time-consuming. So please take a few seconds before submitting your order to ensure that all info is correct.

Any pro tips for a smooth transaction?

Yes! We ask only two things of our customers: 1.) Please read the entire item description before ordering and 2.) Please respect our shop and policies.

Most customer issues arise because someone did not read the item description or store policies. We spend a lot of time including DETAILED descriptions of each item, as well as at least 8 photos of each item. We do this to ensure our customers' satisfaction. However the one catch is that you need to read the information we provide so you can make an informed decision, to ensure that you will receive the exact thing you are in search of.

Not doing so risks lengthy and expensive return processes which are frustrating for all. So please read the descriptions and policies prior to ordering ;)

I live in the Los Angeles area, do you offer local pickup?

No, unfortunately we are not able to offer local pickup at this time. However we do ship just about daily and orders to the LA area typically will arrive in 1-2 days once shipped (Priority Shipping is generally 1 day in most cases).

Any tips for international buyers?

Yes! One tip really: we ask that you track your item periodically via Etsy once we ship.

Many times, international items experience long delays in customs (which is normal), and sometimes parcels are "held for collection" at the local post office of the buyer and need to be picked up, or else they will be returned to seller. It is the responsibility of the buyer to stay abreast of this, so they can be sure to attend to any collection or signature required by your local post office.

If an item is returned due to non-collection, you will need to file a claim with Etsy and/or wait until the item is returned to us (which may be months) for reshipment, and then pay for reshipment.

Much easier to track and stay updated!

I received my order and there's a problem, what should I do?

Please contact us right away and we will do whatever we can to resolve the issue.

While we know the initial reaction may be to leave a negative review, please reach out to us first and give us the opportunity to help you. We're not perfect, but we do take accountability when we are at fault or when we have made an error.

We want all our customers to have a positive shopping experience with us. We have a long history of excellent customer service and can help find a solution to almost anything.

Negative reviews should really be a last resort and are rarely warranted. We prefer to find solutions so that everyone is happy.

When I track my order it says it was delivered, but I haven't received it, what do I do?!

If an item is marked as "delivered" but not received, the next step is to speak with your local post office. It could mean it was misdelivered to an incorrect address or it may be waiting at the post office for you. If you provide the tracking number to a manager at the post office they can explore.

If you do not have success with this, you can open up a case with Etsy for an item not received. Often times Etsy may directly compensate the buyer in these circumstances: help.etsy.com/hc/en-us/articles/5745586898199-How-to-Open-a-Case-?segmen...

We're unfortunately not able to file claims for items marked as "delivered," but we do everything we can to ensure that you will either be refunded or receive your item. So please keep us updated.
