Abundance crystals are crystal points with smaller crystals growing around its base. These crystals foster prosperity and well-being, success, good fortune and all good things for life.
Barnacle Crystals are covered or partially covered with smaller crystals. The larger crystal is the “old soul” and contains the wisdom and trust, which attracts the smaller crystals. This crystal can be used in meditation to provide insights to family and/or community problems. This type of crystal is excellent for those employed by service organizations. It=s energy helps to stimulate a group cohesiveness and a willingness to work together. This crystal is a wonderful companion when one is experiencing the loss of a loved one.
The Bridge Quartz Crystal is recognized by a small crystal which penetrates and is located partially in, and partially out, of a larger crystal. It facilitates bridging between the self and others, between the inner and outer worlds, and between the self and other worlds. The crystal aids in expressing that which one experiences when one is becoming more self-aware. It is beneficial when working with spiritual and metaphysical realms and attempting to share this knowledge with others. It is helpful to public speakers who lecture on topics concerning new ideas and avant garde concepts. It is also useful for all types of teaching, promoting communication ties and understanding between teacher and student.
Natural Carved Crystal
The natural carved Crystal is recognized by the existence of a carved triangular face which outlines the face and is etched such that the location of the engraved portion is normally white in appearance. This crystal can help one to obtain extra-terrestrial information which is beneficial to ones growth and to the growth and increased awareness of our planet. It is a tool for the transfer of information between the self and others who reside on other planes of existence. In addition, this crystal has been used to stimulate the recognition of details related to earth changes, astrological significance, and weather patterns. It has further been used for dowsing.
The Channelling Quartz Crystal has a large seven sided face located in the centre front position of the terminated end of the crystal and a triangular face located on the opposite side of the crystal. Along with the triangle, there are usually other smaller crystals projecting out of the backside. Seven is symbolic of the student, the mystic, and the seeker of deeper truth. Seven is the number of mystical truths that are realized when detachment is attained. The large seven-sided configuration is the doorway through which inner truth can be revealed. The number three represents the power of speech and the ability to creatively and joyously express. “Channelling” is a word being used frequently today and can mean different things to different people. In reference to the Channelling Crystals, it means channelling and expressing the source of truth and wisdom from the depth of the soul with knowledge and pure intentions. The Channelling Crystals are here to teach us how to tap into the wisdom within ourselves, access truth and then bring that forth through verbal expression. Channelling crystals can be used for: meditation, allowing us to gain both inner clarity and wisdom.
Cluster crystals are formations of single terminated crystals that share a common base. There may be hundreds of crystals in the cluster or just two. They serve to bring the “group” energy of the associated crystal to the surroundings, enhancing harmony and peace in groups, in the family, and in other social and/or business environments. The energy generated is directly proportional to the number of crystals in the cluster. The can also be used to activate and to cleanse other minerals, enhancing and increasing their energy. They can be placed in areas to purify the environment of negative energies and feelings.
This crystal is a tool of the light worker, assisting in the removal of unwanted implants. It represents the idea of multiplicity while stabilizing the centre of the self, allowing for an uninterrupted connection with the ethereal perfection.
Natural Curved Crystal
In the Curved Quartz Crystal is produced during the developmental stages of growth and is rather a rare occurrence. When this crystal is placed in our energy field it provides for a continuous alignment of the physical meridians and the nervous system and the alignment of the physical, emotional, mental, etheric, astral, etc. bodies, singularly and with one another. The curved Quartz crystal emanates a gentle, yet powerful energy and can be used to cleanse the aura, to promote flexibility in ones attitudes, and to provide strength to ones decisions. It allows one to see the inner workings of any situation and to understand the superficial and the deeper meanings inherent in it. It also allows one to access the interior of the physical body in order to understand existing disorders, providing information with respect to the “fix”.
Devic Temple Crystals
Devic Temple crystals can be the temporary vehicles through which spiritual guides can find expression and offer wisdom, insight and blessings into our lives. These crystals are usually single generators. What distinguishes them from other crystals is their internal inclusions and markings on the body and the faces. The inner inclusions display impressions of other worlds, temples, or faces or outlines of beings inside the crystal. The body of these crystals may exhibit clearly defined doorways or avenues of entry or ascending steps and/or lines on the body of faces. These crystals enable beings on the inner planes to connect with the material world and for human beings to contact the angels. These crystals symbolize inner sanctums of the self where one can find the peace and inner reflection and where communication with the self can occur. The purpose of working with these crystals is to receive higher guidance and direction that will assist you to go within and become more aware of your true identity and more connected to your own source.
This crystal has a smaller crystal attached to its side and seems to be riding along. It symbolizes the protective and loving energy radiated towards those who are vulnerable and defenceless. This crystal formation is also known as a mother crystal or teaching crystal.
Double Terminated Crystals
When the six faces of Quartz join together to form a point, a terminated crystal is born. When there are terminations on both ends, the Double Terminated Crystal is created. Instead of growing out of a hard rock surface as single terminations are formed, they grow in the centre of soft clay. They have the capacity to draw or to transmit energy through both ends. They teach us balance. They symbolize patience and perseverance. They are excellent to place under our pillow at night to increase and intensify the dream state. They are good stones to use in meditation. They can help refine telepathic powers and can be used to link together individual minds and thoughts. Carrying a double terminated crystal can enable us to maintain our energy shield.
This crystal is known by a configuration of three seven-sided faces, each adjacent on both sides to a three-sided triangular face. Not all these crystals have even sided symmetrical faces. This special crystal manifests perfect geometry in the termination, alternating between triangles and seven-sided faces. It is a combination of the Channelling crystal and the Transmitter crystal, but serves an even greater purpose than the combined effects. It allows access to the records relating to each question or thought and, even without focussing, provides intuitive awareness in all situations. It can be used to express the deepest inner truth, as well as being capable of receiving, containing, and projecting programmed information. It is the crystal for creativity and service to humanity through both spiritual and mystical pursuits.
The faces comprising the Dow are all 7 sided or 3 sided. Seven is symbolic of the ultimate inner truth that is attained when the seeker looks within the inner sanctums of the self. Three represents the trinity and the expression and manifestation of that inner truth. The total of the three seven sided faces and the three triangles is 30 (7x3 + 3x3), which can be reduced to a single three. Thirty signifies the trinity in the constant motion of a circle. The circle contains within it everything that comes into being in the cycle of creation; the totality of expression, from alpha to omega, from life to death and rebirth. The sum thirty pertains to the wheel of life. In relationship to this crystal, all facets of one=s being and life can be positively affected.
Of all the Quartz crystals, this configuration manifests the most perfect geometry. Its symmetrical patterning is unique. Recognizing the perfection in the mineral kingdom through this crystal, helps us to see the possibility that we can also physically manifest that state of integrity, unity, balance and order. It also sends the message that in order to manifest divinity (triangles), we must first access our own inner truth (septagons).
Drusy crystals bring a higher level of energy. They stimulate the exactness of the energy of the mineral. To determine the vibratory number, add 24 to the sum of the number representing each letter of the name of the other mineral.
The Elestial is the enchanted crystal. Their source is beyond time itself and their origin is the celestial realm. They represent the air. They can take us deep within the self, to connect with that which is the innermost truth. . The Elestials bear geometric patterns which in and of themselves state profound laws of the universe. It is as if the symbols of a cosmic alphabet have been written and formed in these crystals. These crystals stabilize brain wave frequencies and neutralize erratic confused thought forms, resulting in an expanded state of awareness. Elestials can bring to the surface that which needs to be dealt with and cleansed, and make us aware of that which is preventing us from experiencing truth, from a detached perspective. They can teach us to understand the true nature of our feelings and the importance of learning to express our feelings in the moment that we feel them. The Elestial can help us to understand that which must be accomplished in this life in order to eliminate the need to repeat harsh lessons. They can help us to find comfort during transition. The Elestial can stimulate clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience. To me, the Elestials are beautiful crystalized examples of all the different directions that we can take in our lives - and each choice is right and beautiful and finally, we end up exactly where we’re supposed to be.
Extra Terrestrial Crystal
The ET crystal has a single termination at one end and multiple terminations on the other. This type of crystal is said to facilitate communication with extra terrestrial beings, celestial beings and guardian angels. This crystal reminds us that we are all individuals within the one. It helps us to build and maintain self confidence and courage.
The Etched crystal has abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal. These abrasions appear to be a type of hieroglyphics. This crystal is used to facilitate contact with and transfer of information relevant to ones life at the present time from the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Lemuria and Atlantis. They were once used in the healing temples of these ancient civilizations and their markings contain information of their experiences and healing methods. It is a personal meditation crystal and if one is meant to experience an Etched Quartz crystal, the universe will provide one. The crystal that comes into ones possession will contain information which will be beneficial to ones personal development and/or which will assist one in helping another.
The Generator crystal has all six crystal faces joining together sharply to form the terminating apex. This crystal is “THE” quartz crystal for energy generation. Their perfected geometric form allows for the focus and proper distribution of this energy into the lives of the people working with them and receiving their healing energy. They will also intensify and direct energy. They can teach us how to concentrate, focus and magnify our own healing energy. These crystals demonstrate how to channel the radiant light force into our beings and onto our world. They can be as small as 1/4" and as large as three feet. No matter their size, they are power pieces and should always be used with respect and knowledge.
A crystal with an eight-sided face is called a Grounding crystal. They are quite rare. Grounding crystals help us to deal with practical matters in a logical and clear-headed way, attuning us to Earth energies and preventing our thoughts from becoming “scattered”. Being grounded helps us to deal with the practical or realistic aspects of life. When used in meditation, they allow us to form a strong connection with higher knowledge, but keep us grounded so that we apply that information in a practical sense. When using a grounding crystal to work through a personal problem, remember that it will require us to look at the truth of the situation and compel us to deal with that truth.
A crystal with a five-sided face is called and Isis crystal. It is believed that the Isis crystal will put us in touch with and strongly amplify our feminine energy, and can help both women or men to get in touch with their “female” or unselfish side. For men, the Isis crystal will help to become more in tune with their feminine side and to become more aware of the aspects in women that they find troubling. Women, can work with the Isis crystal to help them regain some of that power and energy that society has taken away from them.
The key crystals will have a three-sided or six-sided indented shape located on the crystal. This indent becomes narrower as it goes within the crystal and ends within the crystal, usually in an apex termination. The Key crystal is used to unlock the “doors” to healing concepts and to those aspects of the self which tends to be illusive. It can assist in accessing that which is hidden in any situation. It further helps one to answer questions like “why can’t I...?” Key crystals can assist in analytical problem solving. Placing the crystal on a textbook, which contains the information necessary to arrive at a solution, has stimulated the inner knowledge of the answer.
Laser wands are long slender crystals that taper to a termination of small faces. It is said that all “wand” crystals were developed on Earth by other planetary beings by thought projection. These crystals have an intimate relationship with both inner and outer space. Laser Wands can be used during meditation to establish a finer communication with the other worlds, the crystalline world, and the inner world of the self. These crystals radiate a lovely energy and have been recognized as a constant source of the brilliant white light. When holding a wand, the energy tends to surround the body, providing for a protective barrier. The energy of the laser wand crystal is extremely well focussed through the small termination. It can be used to clear an area of negativity, to create protective barriers, and to beam healing energy to the self or another. Laser Wands were once used in the healing temples of Lemuria. The crystals that have unique etchings and/or markings indicate the records of the experiences they have seen. They are said to contain information with respect to the healings which have been proven successful over the eons of time and throughout the universe.
Reversed Lazer Wand
The Reversed Laser Wand has a true taper from the termination to the base and carries additional qualities. These crystals have been used to bring forth an arrangement of the divine order of personal life, the sacred order upon, and within, the Earth and the celestial order of the universe. The Reversed Laser facilitates the concepts of organization and systematic resolutions and helps us to implement these resolutions. They can be used for opening the chakras, for both the self and of another simultaneously. This quality tends to promote a connection that is truly conducive to the successful actualization of healing. They can help us to reach out to others in the spirit of “brotherhood” and love. The Laser Wand is expressive of warmth and intelligence, promoting both altruistic tendencies and devotion to right-mindedness. It provides stamina against weariness from adulation.
Cathedral Lightbraries are Quartz crystals that appear as one large crystal with many smaller crystals contacting and interpenetrating one another and unified in one singly terminated crystal. The crystals that form upon the body of the “mother” are similar to data banks in the sense that they can gather universal knowledge. These data banks are open and clear until conscious thoughts and intentions are projected in them. The energies in the Cathedral Lightbraries project outwards as they stand open to receive the impressions of the universal mind as well as collective thought forms. These crystals are capable of receiving and relaying information. Lightbrary crystals may contain the sacred knowledge of the “Akashic Records”.
The Manifestation crystal is a Crystal with a smaller crystal totally enclosed within it. These crystals are quite rare. To use the manifestation crystal we must know that we are clear and perfect channels, that a pure white light provides the guiding way, and that the purity of the Divine is within the inner self. If we wish to use the crystal to manifest something, we must be clear about what we want. We must clear any feelings of ambivalence and any inner turmoil prior to using this crystal. These crystals can also be used to facilitate artistic creativity, creative thinking, agricultural pursuits, and to increase or decrease any aspect of ones life.
It is so beautiful to see a crystal encased within another. Perhaps the fascination in this is that we can behold a crystallized example of a being growing within another being. A visual of life renewing! A visual of a whole within a whole! There is something else here also - that to become an individual - a separate entity - we must take up “space”. There is a beautiful sharing here, because for us to “take” up space - that “space” must be made for us - given to us. If we look at the manifestation crystal we see that part of one crystal is “given” to allow a new presence to emerge. Often times when this presence emerges - there is a shattering - a “breaking” through - an explosion of sorts, creating fractures as well as rainbows!
This is a rock that has been altered from its original form by changes in temperature, pressure, or the presence of fluids. The minerals of the original rock recrystalize to form new minerals that are now stable under these new conditions. This is a beautiful physical, crystallized, example of the spiritual transformations that we experience in our lives after physical and emotional changes (changes to our physical body, changes outside our body like a move or career change, and loss). These “life altering/metamorphic” experiences cause us to “transform” - to become who we need to be to deal with our new circumstances - and to fulfil our purpose.
This crystal is recognized by a “Phantom” crystal within the crystal, comprised of a white or coloured mineral and may be partial or complete. The Phantoms within a crystal provide an indication of the experiences, and the transformations, which the crystal has encountered during its evolution. The Phantom crystal has experienced numerous lifetimes of learning and “being”, while continuing in the same physical configuration. The crystal represents the many phases and the many types of life which may be experienced during ones lifetime. The Phantom crystal can assist in connecting with the higher realms of knowledge within the records of ones progression through past lives. In addition, it will provide further energy in healing the emotional and physical situations which may be of consequence to the knowledge gained from this regression. The Phantom can be used to assist in meeting and communicating wit our personal spiritual guide.
Red Phantom Quartz crystals additionally contain the properties of limonite, kaolinite and Hematite. These crystals are rare. In addition to the properties discussed above, the Red Phantom produces vitality directed toward creativity, intellectual advancement and intuitive endeavours. It provides for stimulation of the cellular structure of the body. This crystal will be made available to those who are ready for its complex powers.
Black Phantoms are very unusual. They provide the energy of the quartz, coupled with the property of grounding through the perfect alignment of the physical energy centres. When using a Black Phantom, we do not need an additional stone for grounding.
Naturally Radiated Crystals
Naturally radiated crystals have been exposed to electromagnetic radiation in their natural growth process and have not only survived, but have become more valuable because of it. These crystals will strengthen the auric field and stabilise the physical system in order to provide protection against the present damaging effects of nuclear radiation.
Some crystals contain internal fractures which have certain prismatic effects which produce powerful rainbows with the crystal, giving additional energy which is lacking in a clear specimen. These crystals bring rainbows into ones life and are very special gifts. They are a reminder of hope and new life, a sign that the sun is always behind the clouds of our doubt and confusion. They help us to deal with negativity and to maintain the constant awareness that love is in our life at all times. They produce the full spectrum of colour from the white light of healing and perfection.
A Record Keeper crystal has one or more raised perfect triangle(s) located on one or more of the crystal faces. Besides Quartz, Record Keepers can be found on a few rare Ruby or Sapphire crystals. The Record Keeper is a crystal within which wisdom is stored. When one properly attunes to this crystal, the ancient knowledge and profound secrets of the universe can be retrieved. These crystals are said to have been consciously and purposely programmed. With an open mind and a pure heart, we can access this information. The information provided by the Record Keeper enhances our light, provides for a deeper access to personal wisdom, and promotes a greater peace to be used in this world. If one is meant to experience a Record Keeper, the universe will provide one. The crystal which comes to us will contain information which will be beneficial to our personal development and/or will provide information which will assist us in helping another.
This is a naturally formed crystal with a thinner rod extending from the base. These crystals were said to have been used in Atlantis and Lemuria in healing ceremonies. They were a symbol of the power of the realm and were carried or worn by the “high priest/priestess”. The Sceptre crystal brings the spirituality of the higher planes in the healing ceremonies and focuses the energy deep within the “heart” of the matter. If the Sceptre is in reversed form, it is referred to as “Reversed Sceptre”, which activates the same properties and further serves to return the healing energy to the user. It can also be used to produce a state of mind, which is free from impressions. It allows us to see the duality of our nature, rectifying the negative and building the positive.
Self Healed Crystal
The Self-Healed crystal is one that was separated from a secure base or was damaged during growth, but continued to reach the inherent natural state of perfection by forming smaller terminated faces. These faces together appear like a lace type design of finished edges. Another type of Self-Healed crystal is one which has been broken on the horizontal plane, with the break being healed and the crystal structure being again complete. This particular type of Self-healed crystal is a master in the art of self-healing. Having learned to heal itself, this type of crystal can lend this knowledge to the user and can share the experience of self-healing. This crystal can also used to heal others. The Self-Healed crystal takes situations which appear to be devastating, and helps them to fulfil themselves.
This crystal has a shovel formation and can be used to assist us in finding solutions. It can help us to come to information which will assist us in our progress towards resolution. It provides encouragement to gather knowledge throughout the travels of life. It encourages lasting impressions of desirable experiences and hinders lasting impressions of undesirable experiences, without allowing us to forget the lessons learned from these experiences.
These crystals have one or more of its faces which resemble a “spade” (from a deck of playing cards). The Spade crystal brings an insight which allows us to see into the heart of a situation to determine the benefit, or detriment if we continue to participate. It will also help us to connect to the inner strength required for continuing or discontinuing this participation. It is a protective stone for travel, especially by air. It will also inspire us to have the persistence to maintain “correctness”.
A star crystal, also known as asterated, has a naturally occurring 4 or 6 ray star which appears when held in direct light. This crystal’s energy brings forth the light of the universe, integrating it with the light of the inner self, so that we may speak, act and perform the will of the Divine.
Time Link Crystals
Time link crystals can be recognized by a parallelogram adjacent to one of the faces of the crystal. It is a seventh facet which empowers the crystal with added dimension and power. Katrina Raphaell believes that the parallelogram is one of the main geometrical teachers at this time and offers a unique expertise in linking simultaneous existences. Time Link crystals are like bridges that the soul can travel upon in order to consciously connect with aspects of the self existing in other times and places. With the help of the Time Link crystals and the soul as a trustworthy guide, past and future identities can be witnessed and ancient heartaches can by healed.
Tabular (Tabbie) Crystals
These crystals are rare flat Quartz crystals with two of the opposing sides being larger and wider, with notches on one or both of the flat sides. They are often double terminated and on occasion can be seen in clusters. They are a very high vibration crystal, rarely recognized for the power that is instilled within it. Tabulars have a different energy frequency than any other Quartz configuration and their full potential has not yet been properly acknowledge or utilized. Rubbing the fingernail in a “downward” motion across the notches of the Tabbie, produces an opening of the crystal. This opening is similar to opening file drawers and one can then access the information which is contained within the crystal. Closure of this opening is achieved by rubbing the fingernail in an upward motion across the notches. In addition, this crystal is used to activate other crystals and minerals. One way to accomplish this is to hold the Tabbie in the “hand of preference” and to rub the notches in a downward motion, while holding the other stone in the other hand.
Tabbies are a connecting communicator which strives to equalize energies. A Tabbie can be held in each hand to balance the energy flow in the body. They are wonderful marriage counsellors, as they help to bridge any gaps in communication or sharing. Double terminated Tabbies can be used in telepathic communication between two like minded people. Tabular crystals often times become personal meditation pieces or private teacher crystals because they establish such a strong link between to the higher self. They will attract themselves towards the people who can best attune to their frequency and benefit from their power.
Transmitter Crystals are recognized by a configuration of two symmetrical seven-sided faces with a perfect triangular face located between them. The 7-3-7 combination indicates personal improvement, creativity and manifestation. The combination of the two seven-sided faces brings the qualities of ease, in change and in progress, together with variety in the experience of higher knowledge. The Transmitter can help one to connect to the highest wisdom and one can receive specific information to specific circumstances or one can receive the universal truth necessary for ones growth to enlightenment. It is a communication stone, allowing one to send and receive thought transmissions. As one works with transmitter crystals, it is possible to learn the art of communication by clearly stating your intentions with the assurance that you are ready and willing to incorporate the return energy.
Any configuration of Quartz can be a Transformation crystal but it is usually not recognized until the beginning of the transformation, in which there is a change in shape, quality, and/or colour. This crystal is one for progressive change, assisting one in forward movement in all aspects of life. It helps one to replace negative attitudes with positive direction. When transformation takes place in the crystal, a change in colour tends to stimulate activity and healing related to the new colour; a change in shape often indicate the creation of a self-healing crystal; change in quality may signify the addition or elimination of negativity.
This crystal is recognized as a growing-together of two or more individual crystals such that certain portions of each crystal are in parallel alignment and other portions of each crystal are in reverse positions with respect to each other. It facilitates the building of relationships on all levels, acting to encourage encounters with the soul-mate(s) present during this lifetime. It promotes the recognition that loves gives freedom. It is also useful for melding the consciousness of groups and for promotion of universal love.
Tantra means union, or the harmonious mergence of energies. Tantric Twins share a common base and yet have two distinct terminations at the apex. Both terminations may or may not be the same height. Sometimes, where the single crystals meet, there will be brilliant fluorescent rainbows. These crystals relate to personal relationships and to the harmonious union of two separate, yet intimately bonded individuals. The ones with rainbows will transmit a sense of joy while replaying the many rays and ways that relationships can be coloured. The Tantric Twins transmit the reality of unity. By holding them, meditating with them, sleeping with them, or just having them around, greater unification starts to take place. In private use, they can bring one closer to the source, or when working with another person, create a closer connection. They can help to balance conflicting relationships, helping us to see that there are always solutions that can be found in resolving disagreements.
These crystals have a large diamond shaped window located in the centre front of the crystal, such that the top point of the diamond connects with the line leading directly to the termination, the side points connect with the angles forming the opposing faces, and the bottom point connects with a line leading to the base of the crystal. The window actually becomes the seventh face. Not all diamond-faced crystals are Windows. True Window crystals have a “large” diamond shaped face in the centre front of the crystal. They will be apparent and obvious. These crystals are powerful teachers. They are like open windows through which one can see into the essence of the self. They often allow one to become aware of the insecurities, which inhibit the expression of the perfect self. They allow for the reflection of ones self-image. These are very personal crystals and grow in power the more they are used. They do not hold impressions or carry records with them. They reflect. In order to incorporate what the Window Crystals will reflect, one must be willing to let go of thoughts, actions, patterns and behaviours that prevent the acceptance of responsibility to live in the truth. Otherwise conflict can arise in one’s life by having seen the soul’s potential yet being unable or unwilling to manifest it. These special crystals will come to a person when he/she is willing to honestly look within the self and to accept the truth. Window crystals have been used to locate “missing persons” and lost items.
