Last time we discussed crystal mining in Arkansas and how it varies from digging. Digging your own crystal is a rewarding and exhilarating experience; because I’ll describe digging in much more detail later, for now, I will speak in generalities. Most of the mines require a small digging fee for the entire day. You simply choose a mine, pay the fee, sign a liability release and then start digging. Safety is a major concern for all ages.

DIGGING QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN ARKANSAS 1 of 6: “Mining” vs “Digging”

Last blog post we talked about where to dig crystal in Arkansas, in this post I was planning to cover how to dig. It’s a MUCH bigger subject than it seems like it might be, so I am breaking it into several parts. Let’s start with the actual crystal mining process and we’ll cover what the difference is in “mining” and “digging”. Crystals emerge from the earth in two ways; either they are dug out

Where To Dig Crystal in Arkansas

This is one of the most asked questions I get, and it is actually a little bit difficult to answer for a variety of reasons. First, there are several options available. The mines are all the same in that you are digging for crystal, but they also vary greatly in amenities, ease of access, whether or not they are currently being worked, etc… Second, it is important to note that digging crystal is very much like fishing. It


Last week we covered part one of A Comprehensive Look at Programming where we covered what it is and why to do it. We’re going to pick right up where we left off last week with actually programming a crystal. If you read the post last week, I suggested you think of a basic (simple) program you might like to try and to find the crystal friend to help you. Once you have chosen the

A COMPREHENSIVE LOOK AT PROGRAMMING CRYSTALS (Part 1 of 2) What is it and Why to do it

In the last post we talked about charging your crystals. I hope you were able to pull in some full moon energy and give your crystals some much needed attention, rest, and rejuvenation. This week we’re going to revisit programming since it is a natural followup to charging. It’s a big topic so I’m splitting it into two parts. This week we’ll cover what programming is, what it ISN’T and why do it. Next week we’ll

Revisiting CHARGING Crystal

This week, the “planned” post was going to be about crystals with Inclusions. As you might have already figured out, this isn’t that post. In the last few weeks, we have been winding up the talk on the individual configurations and their metaphysical meanings. Which (if you’ve noticed) is the reason the past few posts have been out of alphabetical order (I am picking up crystals I didn’t cover for one reason or another). However,

LEMURIAN SEED CRYSTALS – Crystals “Seeded” by Past Civilizations

This week we’re going to discuss Lemurian Seed crystals. They sometimes are similar in shape to Laser Wands, and indeed, some Lemurian Seed crystals ARE Laser Wands. As a reminder of what Laser Wands here, follow this link to a post on that subject. Though Lemurian Seed crystals are sometimes in the shape of Laser wands, (a thicker base which tapers to a very small terminating end) they do differ in a few very different ways,

ARTEMIS or CANDLE Crystal – Speed Energy To Its Goal

This week we’re going to talk about Artemis or Candle crystals, which are long thin points with a 6 to 1 ratio (for example: 1 inch wide and 6 inches long, or 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long, ETC). This is a potentially confusing topic, so I hope this post helps clarify rather than muddy the water. Candle crystals should not be confused with Candle Quartz. Candle Quartz is a crystal which looks a lot

ENHYDRO CRYSTALS – Forbidden Knowledge, Excited Possibility, Magic!

This week we’re going to revisit Enhydro crystals. I LOVE Enhydro crystals! There are many different thoughts about the properties of Enhydro quartz but they mostly boil down to knowledge, possibility and magic. We’ll get to that later in the post. First, let’s talk about what they are. Enhydros are crystals with fluid inside them. The only way to know for CERTAIN if you have an Enhydro (if there is water or fluid present) is

LEFT & RIGHT ACTIVATION WINDOWS – Time Links To The Past & Future

This week we’re going to discuss Left and Right Activation Windows in crystals. To review what we discussed last week, a Window crystal is a crystal with an extra facet. To determine if you have a window, you count the faces. As we talked about last week, Windows are also called “Time Links”. A Window with an upright diamond (points oriented to north, south, east and west) is simply called a “Window”. If the diamond
