ELESTIAL CRYSTALS – Connect with angelic energies

This week we’ll be discussing Elestial crystals which is a crystal type that falls into the category of crystals’ overall shape, such as Curved. This means we aren’t counting edges of faces, looking at surface features or otherwise looking at PARTS of a crystal, but we are looking at the overall shape of the crystal.


Elestial crystals are described as crystals which “have natural terminations over the body and face of an etched and/or layered crystal”. So, what does that mean? Simply, that they really aren’t in the shape of a traditional point. They are layered all over with self-healed looking surfaces.

Traditionally, when you mention Elestial crystals, they are smoky. However I have found that not all crystals which fit in the Elestial category are Smoky. If you do a Google image search for Elestial crystals, you will see many smoky crystals, lots that look like Cathedral or Lightbraries, and there will also be some clear (non-smoky) points. As an aside, most all Cathedral crystals are Elestial, but not all Elestial are Cathedrals.


To help you understand what we are looking at, I have drawn pink lines on the part of the crystal that lets you know it is Elestial or Elestiated (partial point/partial Elestial, see below).

Sometimes points are what I call “Elestiated.” To me that means it is a point that isn’t quite all point, and isn’t quite all Elestial, but is sort of a combination of the two, like this one:


And here is an Elestiated Twin or Soulmate crystal:


Here are two Elestial crystals, I didn’t draw on them because I would have ended up drawing all the lines on each crystal:


Elestial crystals have a soft, loving energy. They usually feel angelic to me. I work with them when I want to connect to an angelic energy all around me. Their energy is less focused, more amorphous (having no definite form, without shape).

Today we’ve learned that:

  • Elestial crystals are crystals which have natural terminations over the body and face of an etched and/or layered crystal.
  • Crystals may be part point and part Elestial, called Elestiated.
  • They have an angelic, less focused, amorphous energy.
  • Elestial crystals are good to work with to connect with angelic energy.

I hope you have enjoyed this discussion about Elestial quartz crystals; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with them. Next time we’ll discuss Empathic quartz crystals.

Here is a recap of the past posts featuring the metaphysical configurations and links to where you might find these various crystal configurations if you decided you might like to work with them:

ELESTIAL or ELESTIATED CRYSTAL (To connect with angelic energies.) purchase Elestial crystal

EIGHT-SIDED FACE / GROUNDING CRYSTALS (Any time you need to refocus and ground.) purchase Eight-Sided Face   read blog post

DOW or TRANS-CHANNELER CRYSTALS (For divine balance, and a connection with the self and Universal Truth.) Note: Dow crystals are rare, and I don’t always have very many of them. Sometimes the ones I have are Dow by count (7-3-7-3-7-3) but have one large 7-sided face (present as a Channeler) or two large 7-sided faces and one small 7 (present as a Transmitter). If you order one, I will let you know at time of purchase what I have available.  purchase Dow or Trans-Channeler crystal     read blog post

    Genn, I hate to say it but none of the crystals on this page look like elestials (unless the photos are really, really bad). An elestial also goes by the name “crocodile quartz” because of its unique terminations that look like crocodile scales, though not all elestials have that formation. Take a look at https://www.majestic-quartz.com/what-is-a-elestial.html for some superb examples of what an elestial is and the definition of Elestial. It took me some time to recognize the unique terminations, but once you “get it,” then you can easily spot elestials from other types of quartz formations.

      Hey Katie! Thanks so much for sharing your information. I hope others find it helpful! I like having more information, it is always welcomed! There are many variations even within one category (like the website you linked shows). Also many categories are “named” differently by different people (case-in-point: the website refers to “Doorway Elestials” which is also known as a “Trigonic Record Keeper” – neither wrong, both correct). Many of the examples on the majestic page are skeletal quartz. You’re right in that none of my pictures are of skeletals. It’s wonderful to have the additional information to look to, to help us each define what we understand a particular formation to be. It’s also nice to see the many many variations crystals can present with, even within one small category. It can be a steep learning curve, to be sure! Thanks again for sharing this information! I appreciate it and hope it is of help to others on their learning journey.

    Hi Genn , Greetings on this fine Autumn morning . This last 3 years has been difficult for me – unfortunately instead of being ” Full ” of boundless energy -I became ” empty ” . But the emptiness evolved into an appreciation of ” Clarity ” . I met my Reiki friend Sheila ,an attunement took place & overnight I started researching & collecting crystals . I found out online that Elestials can Radiate and effect everything within a mile radius of themselves . Which my Big Elestial Sunshine Sister is doing . I am more able to feel the Sunshine within & now can consciously direct this energy outwards . Awareness of ” Spirits ” and my visionary dreams have increased . I would recommend ” Everyone ” to find an Elestial for themselves . Many Blessings & Cheers from Paul .

      Thanks so much Paul! What a wonderful comment. Your sweet Sunshine Sister Elestial sounds like a dream. Thanks so much for sharing a little more of your journey!! Here’s to more and more inner sunshine, lightness and joy!

    I have a small clear sparkling Elestial from Brazil with lovely Mayan pyramid types of Steps . This stone is Very clear and gentle and enabled me to come into contact with Raphael . Now I recently bought another Bigger Elestial , Slightly less clear But not Smokey With some Mayan Steps . This one seems to have ” Taken over ” all my other crystals and infused them with a higher vibration , as yet Purpose unknown , But they all are infused with the same controlling factor from the Elestial . I await further developments . Overall I am feeling better and more optimistic .Cheers from Paul.
