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 crystal.
Although they are named “Isis” Face, this isn’t to mean they are connecting (only) with the Goddess Isis (although you could), but rather Goddess energy in all its forms. Isis Face crystals have a distinctly feminine energy, regal and majestic. Isis face crystals tend to have this feminine energy even in crystals which present as masculine by definition (clear).
Sometimes at first glance, a face may appear to be an Isis Face but the top angles off, giving the edge count an extra side like the example in the following photo. This is not an Isis Face. Therefor it is important to count the edges. As an aside, the crystal pictured might not be an Isis Face, but it does have a Phantom. See the grey just inside the crystal? We’ll get to those in a couple of weeks.
The Isis face will look like this instead:
Sometimes the Isis Face is missing a piece due to either damage during growth or in the mining process. These crystals still have Goddess energy and are considered Isis Face, here are a few examples:
Now that you know how to determine whether you have an Isis Face crystal or not, how might one work with Isis Face crystals?
You might create a grid using Isis Face crystals on the cardinal points (North, South, East West) and pointing IN to the center to bring in powerful Goddess energies, or pointing OUT of the center if you are reaching OUT to same. The image to the left is a grid I made with Channeling crystals, but the same would apply, substituting Isis Face crystals. In this grid, I placed Channeling quartz crystal points facing OUT on the cardinal points (N, S, E, W) and facing IN on the intermediate points (NW, NE, SW, SE), and so on. I also placed a large Channeler quartz crystal at the center of the grid to hold the energy. To make your Goddess grid, you would simply place Isis Face crystals where I have Channelers.
You could create a small grid which would sit on a tabletop like the one pictured, or cast a large circle and create your crystal grid, inside the circle, on the outer edges, with you in the center, holding an Isis crystal. If you only have one Isis Face crystal, I would place it in the center of the grid or circle and use other quartz points, programmed to connect with Goddess energy, on the outer edge to amplify the energy of the Isis Face.
If making grids or casting circles doesn’t interest you, you might just meditate with an Isis Face crystal and focus on the strong Goddess energy they bring in. I like to place my thumb over the Isis Face to strengthen the connection and also to anchor in the energy.
I hope you have enjoyed this discussion of Isis Face crystals. Next week we’ll discuss Laser Wand 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:
ISIS FACE (Connect with Goddess Energy) purchase Isis Face crystal
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
DOLPHIN CRYSTAL (To encourage teaching in a loving, fun, joyful way, or alternately, to assist one to enjoy learning) read blog post
See you next week for Laser Wand quartz crystals.
