These are awesome grade A- Amanita Muscaria caps picked in the Czech Republic! Czech Republic Amanitas are the newest variety here at Eternity in a Box, as we are Very Excited to be able to offer them here. So unique and profound a teacher! With A- Czech amanita you can expect some Bright Vibrant & Beautiful Red/Orange cap pieces as well as a good % of Broken caps and/or discolored caps, and some ‘cap shake’. It’s hard to import these without having some breakage, so the A+/A- distinction is less focused on intact caps and more so a measure of Color and Vibrancy.
The difference between these, the Washington mushrooms, and the European Latvia mushrooms are extremely significant. They are all wonderful teachers in their own ways, the Czech tend to be very energizing and otherworldly feeling in their vibration, they also seem to be more aromatically potent. The Latvia are very grounded and peaceful in their energy, providing a very versatile and comfortable vibration. The Washington are the most grounding and can be overpowering in their strong vibrations, yet provide a very warm sensation of love when near them.
Very pretty ranging from orange/yellow to bright red 🙂 Absolutely beautiful cap specimen, though the Czech specimen tend to break during shipment as they are Very fragile and thing/delicate beauties.
It’s always an honor for us to have Amanita Muscaria available for those in need. This plant has taught us so much here at Eternity in a Box and is a a teacher which we hold in the highest of regards.
These were used traditionally in Siberian shamanism. They also have a common mythical connotation in stories such as Alice in Wonderland, and are often used as a symbol for ‘otherworldiness’ in illustration. Read about the roots of the Santa Claus tradition in relation to these mushroms, ha pretty mindblowing stuff.
