MANIFESTATION – Assistance with Attaining Desires

Manifestation crystals fall into the category of crystals within crystals. Unlike a Bridge or Inner Child, a Manifestation point doesn’t protrude from the main crystal, it is completely enclosed within it. Descriptively they are small points that have formed within a larger point and they are quite rare.  Manifestation points are sometimes difficult to determine from a photograph. When you have the crystal in hand, you can see that there is a point within the point,

LINEATED FACES – To Reach Deeper Levels in Meditation

Last week we discussed Lineated Sides. This week we were going to discuss Lineated Faces. As a recap, collectively the lines on the sides or faces of crystals are referred to as Lineation. To specify where the Lineation occurs, you add “side” or “face”. Remember that Lineation is simply lines or striations on the sides or faces of crystals. The sides of crystals which have been polished won’t have any lineation and it’s a great indicator

LINEATED SIDES – To Access Deeper Understanding

This week we were going to discuss Lineated Sides and Lineated Faces. Collectively they are referred to as Lineation. To specify where the Lineation occurs, you add “side” or “face”. Because the blog post grew and grew, I have decided to break up the information. This week we’ll cover Lineated Sides and next week we’ll cover Lineated faces. Lineation is simply lines or striations on the sides or faces of crystals. The sides of crystals which have

LASER WAND – For Extremely Precise Energy Direction

This week we’re going to discuss Laser Wand crystals. They fall into the category of “Overall Shape” with Elestials, Curved and Empathic crystals. Laser Wand crystals are thicker at the base than the tip. The termination is usually quite small in comparison to the rest of the point. While the body of the point may not be curved, the edges of the sides are often curved and heavily lineated. Here’s a graphic to help you

ISIS FACE CRYSTALS – Connect to Goddess Energy

This week we’re going to talk about Isis Face crystals. An Isis Face is a symmetrical 5-sided face. They are not always the largest face on the termination, but oftentimes are. Isis face crystals have a distinct look and are easy to spot, but as a reminder, to determine if you have a 5-sided face, you count the edges of the face. Below is a picture from a previous blog post of the parts of a

KEYS and IMPRINTS – Unlock Answers & Adapt During Growth

This week we’re going to discuss Imprints and Keys. Remember we talked about Growth Interference last week, and that it is caused by the introduction of another mineral to the crystal during its growth. Keys and Imprints are caused by crystals being in close proximity to one another as they grow. A Key is created when a crystal pokes into another crystal during its growth. To the left is a visual example of how they are created: Take

GROWTH INTERFERENCE CRYSTALS – A Lesson in Adaptation

Today we’re going to talk about Growth Interference which is a condition in which a crystal changes shapes as it grows due to the presence of another mineral which acts as an obstruction. These shapes might be squares and triangles, and more often than not, it looks like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasses. Here are some crystals with the

GOLDEN HEALER QUARTZ CRYSTAL – For Use In Healing Applications

This week we’re going to discuss Golden Healer quartz crystals. They are quartz crystals that are partially or totally covered with a transparent golden-yellow mineral. The coating ranges from iridescent yellow to rusty dark orange, from total coverage to skippy, partial coverage. This coating doesn’t come off in an acid bath. Often the lightly coated Golden Healers will have rainbow iridescence on the outer layer (like rainbows you see on oil slicks, also called “natural rainbow

TAKING A BREATHER – A Reminder About Crystal Names & Descriptions

This week I decided to postpone the post about Golden Healers (til maybe late week?). Surprisingly (to me) there was a LOT of controversy about the post on Feminine, Masculine and Yin/Yang crystals… I thought it would be a good idea to revisit why we are going over these different names and what they really mean. I have already addressed this in an earlier post but I think it’s sometimes a good idea to go

GENERATOR or MERLIN CRYSTAL – For Precise, Direct, Focused Energy

Today we’ll be discussing Generator crystals. This is a configuration which falls under the categories of shape and terminations. Generator crystals are also sometimes called Merlin crystals. Generator crystals have six equally sized faces and a centrally located tip. It is very unusual to find such a precise configuration. You may find a point with the energetic qualities of a Generator, but the physical description may not be textbook perfect (the tip may be centrally
