EIGHT-SIDED FACE or GROUNDING CRYSTAL – stop, refocus and ground

This week we’ll be discussing Eight-Sided face or Grounding crystals. Eight-Sided face is a crystal shape that falls into the category of crystals of which you must count the edges of the main face, as we discussed with Channeling crystals. As a reminder, we need to discuss faces (also called facets) and edges of faces. Remember that the edges of the faces are the boundaries of each face (or facet). Structurally, quartz crystal has six sides and

DRUSY or DRUZY CRYSTAL – thought forms ready to spring forth and grow

This week we’ll be discussing Drusy. Drusy is a crystal shape that falls into the category of crystals on crystals. Very similar to Barnacles, Drusy (sometimes spelled Druzy) consists of very small points that are described as “a myriad of very closely set tiny crystals.” Drusy may be present on points (like the one above) or on the points of fully formed clusters or they may be simply present on a matrix, these are called Drusy

DOW or TRANS-CHANNELER CRYSTAL – divine balance, connection with Universal Truth

This week we’ll be discussing Dow or Trans-Channeler crystals. It is a crystal shape that falls into the category of facets: number of edges, and is another example of a crystal with two names for the same configuration. More commonly, they are referred to as Dow, (named after JaneAnn Dow by her friend and fellow crystal worker and author, Katrina Raphaell). Trans-Channeler is what Melody (from the “Love is in The Earth” series of crystal

DOUBLE TERMINATED CRYSTAL – energy which flows in both directions

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Double Terminated quartz crystals; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy. We discussed crystal Clusters in an earlier post. We mentioned at that time that there are some crystals which don’t grow on a matrix, they basically grow from a “seed” of silicon dioxide in clay. That is what we’ll discuss in this blog post: Double

DOLPHIN CRYSTAL – encourage teaching/learning in a joyful way

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Dolphin quartz crystals; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy. Physical: Dolphin crystals are crystals which have a smaller crystal attached to (riding along) the side, not quite big enough to be a Twin or Soulmate, but aligned similarly. They are sometimes called a baby or a sidekick. If you picture a dolphin with a baby

CURVED CRYSTAL – assist with flexibility, to “go with the flow”

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Curved quartz crystals; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy. Curved crystals have a gentle, yet powerful energy. They help promote a flexible attitude. Look at the shape of this curved crystal, it looks like it would “go with the flow” doesn’t it!? Curved crystals can also be used to cleanse the aura. Very large ones can

CRYSTAL CLUSTER – Raise the vibration & assist with group dynamics

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of quartz crystal Clusters; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy. Quartz crystal grows on a matrix. To picture this, imagine a hand; the palm would be similar to the matrix with the fingers resembling the crystal points. Smoosh a whole BUNCH of hands together palm to palm and you would have a cluster. The points of

CATHEDRAL or LIGHTBRARY CRYSTAL – Raise your vibration or access Akashic Records

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Lightbrary or Cathedral quartz crystals; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy. The two names (they are used interchangeably) will help you to remember what they look like and also what they do. In “Cathedral” you get a visual reference (what they look like) and in “Lightbrary”, a metaphysical (what they do or how to work with them).

CHANNELER or CHANNELING CRYSTAL – To access higher wisdom, guides, other-world beings

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Channeling or Channeler quartz crystal points; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy. They are referred to as either Channeler OR Channeling, both are correct and are used interchangeably. Metaphysical description: Channeler quartz crystals help you access higher wisdom, either in the form of your Higher Self or Spirit Guides, or of Angels. These crystals exude a

BRIDGE or INNER CHILD CRYSTAL – Bridge between worlds or to your innermost Self

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Bridge or Inner Child crystals. Here is the description I give about Bridge/Inner Child crystals in my book Understanding the Crystal People: Physical description: A Bridge or Inner Child is a smaller crystal (or crystals) penetrating and located partially in and partially out of a larger crystal. Both names, Bridge and Inner Child, are used interchangeably. I call them Bridges when the point is fairly large and
