Cathedral or Lightbrary Quartz Crystal – Revisit

As a reminder, we are going to revisit all the quartz crystal types, condensing the information to just a few items to make remembering easier. This week we’re going to revisit Cathedral or Lightbrary quartz crystals. There is a long blog post on this, posted previously, here. I will try to extrapolate on that information rather than repeating it. FIRST – WHAT ARE CATHEDRAL OR LIGHTBRARY CRYSTALS? Descriptively, these crystals are comprised of smaller points, surrounding

Bridge or Inner Child Quartz Crystal – Revisit

We’re going to revisit all the quartz crystal types, condensing the information to just a few items to make remembering easier. This week we’re going to revisit Bridge or Inner Child quartz crystals. First, what are Bridges? Bridges are crystals which penetrate a larger crystal. They are located partially in and partially out of another crystal. When they are larger they are called Bridges, when they are smaller, they are called Inner Child crystals. They both function the same

QUARTZ CRYSTAL WORKSHOP April 13-16, 2018 Fayetteville, AR

Here’s a two month heads-up so you can start planning your trip to Arkansas! Join me in Fayetteville, Arkansas at the Ozark Research Institute’s Dowsing & Alternative Healing Convention this April. There will be speakers all weekend and a vendor’s area with all sorts of awesome offerings. I’ll be doing crystal readings and will have crystals and books available. What am I covering in my workshop? “Metaphysical Properties of Quartz Crystal, Simplified!” Have you ever wondered

CRYSTALS WHICH ARE BROKEN IN OUR CARE: what it means

This is addressing the second part of a question posed to me (the first part of the question is found here). The questioner asked: “Sometimes [crystals]  jump from my hand or I drop another crystal on them accidentally, etc. I am brand new at this and don’t know how to proceed. Thank you” – K. S. CRYSTALS WHICH BREAK WHILE IN OUR CARE If you live with crystals for long, there will unfortunately come a day when breakage

Is it Necessary to Identify The Crystal Type?

This blog post is in answer to a great three part question about crystals with more than one prominent type. Specifically, 1. is there generally one type (configuration) through which a crystal prefers to connect? 2. How would it be best to identify this? and 3. Is it even necessary to identify the crystal type to connect? The question reads in full: I have a lovely crystal which recently chose me that I am trying

Storing Crystal – Best Practices

Hello fellow crystal lovers! In this blog post I am going to answer a question I recently received. It also addresses other questions which seem to pop up on occasion, one of which I will answer in another post. Here is the question: I have been purchasing tons of tumbles, quartz, and other minerals. Because I have a very destructive cat, I have to keep them stored in plastic craft boxes wrapped with bubble wrap

Metaphysical Properties of Quartz Crystal Explained (via Crystal Guide “Venus”)

A word from Venus (Crystal Guide) describing the metaphysical properties of quartz crystals. “While the crystal configurations and shapes which have been named by many are a good way to generally categorize these configurations, it can be misleading, because people may think that if a shape or structure implies this or that (via the name or description), that magically, simply by obtaining one of these specially named crystals, the desired outcome will be achieved. This

BARNACLE QUARTZ CRYSTAL – REVISIT

We’re going to revisit all the quartz types, using some drawings from my Crystal Mandala books (in which I have drawn a mandala of each type of crystal, condensing the information to 4 to 5 items to make remembering easier). This week we’re going to revisit Barnacle quartz crystals. First, what are Barnacles? Barnacles are small crystals attached to a larger crystal. They almost appear to be glued on. They aren’t penetrating the larger crystal (in which case,

YIN/YANG QUARTZ CRYSTALS – Physically, What Makes a Crystal Yin/Yang ?

The last couple of posts, we have been reviewing Feminine and Masculine crystals. Before we finish the three part series by talking about Yin/Yang (part Masculine, part Feminine) crystals, first a note: As always, whenever I mention Masculine or Feminine in regard to crystals, people tend to flip their lids! This time was no exception. It would seem that in our societal complex right now, anything to do with “gender” is triggering knee-jerk reactions in

MASCULINE QUARTZ CRYSTALS – Physically, What Makes a Crystal Masculine ?

Last blog post we discussed Feminine quartz crystals, today we’re going to revisit Masculine quartz crystals. As with our discussion of Feminine crystals, we’re talking about what a “Masculine” quartz crystal looks like. In this first part, we’re discussing whether a crystal is called Masculine by features only, not by energy. In the past I have called this an “anatomy lesson” because basically we’ll be discussing whether a crystal presents physically what has been described as Masculine. (In the next
