Continuing on with our discussion of the different named configurations in quartz crystals, Rainbows in crystals is the topic this week.
Rainbows may be present inside a crystal due to fractures or on the internal wall of two connected crystals. Some of the fractures are what I call Mirror Fractures; they look like mirrors and sometimes are called Wall crystals. I did a whole blog post on Mirror Fractures and Fairy Frost (both of which are often accompanied by Rainbows). (Click this link to revisit the blog post on Mirror Fractures and Fairy Frost. ) Following is a paraphrased portion of that blog post, describing Mirror Fractures.
Mirror Fractures are shiny and silvery and look like mirrors inside the crystal. They often have Rainbows on or near them (see the Rainbow at the bottom of the picture on the right). Here are some crystals with Mirror Fractures:
Rainbows may be just pink and green, or they may have the full rainbow color spectrum. They often occur on the inner “wall” where two crystals have grown together. Here are some crystals which present rainbows in that way:
Sometimes there may be a Manifestation point inside and the reflection of the Rainbow off its surface is the only clue to it being there. The third picture from the left above is one such crystal. The others are on Bridges, Barnacles or cluster points.
Rainbows can be difficult to see at times, so it is helpful to have very bright light, and you may have to turn the crystal in all different directions and in different angles (side-to-side, upside down, etc.) in order to see them. The rainbows aren’t usually in a traditional rainbow arc shape unless the surface on which they occur is curved. Here are some pictures of Rainbows which might be harder to spot initially:
Photographs of the Rainbows in crystals are never as magical as experiencing the rainbow in real life. They flash, sparkle and change as you move the crystal in the light. Here are some more rainbows, some on Mirror Fractures others amid the Fairy Frost:
Rainbows in crystals are some of my favorite special characteristics that a crystal may have. It is always a pleasant surprise to find a Rainbow, and when they are bright and full of color it is no wonder that Rainbows are described as “a gift from the Spirit Keeper in the crystal”.
Rainbow crystals are optimistic and happy and they remind us that we are loved. If you find yourself lacking hope and optimism, it never hurts to have a Crystal Friend to remind you of the hope and love that is there, even when you don’t feel it.
This ends our discussion of Rainbow crystals, next week we’ll discuss Record Keepers, another favorite of mine!
