Crystal People: Making the Connection

Enter into an in-depth discussion about the world of the Crystal People. In this blog spot we will explore the truth that crystals are sentient beings and learn how to connect with them. We’ll cover all areas of quartz crystal such as how they form, methods of cleansing, clearing and programming, how and why to make crystal grids and other tools, how and where to dig your own crystals and much more.

ISIS FACE CRYSTALS - Connect to Goddess Energy

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. 

anatomy 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).

INCLUSIONS - Minerals Trapped Within Quartz During Growth

This week we're going to talk about Inclusions in crystal, sometimes called Included quartz or Included crystals. This basically occurs when crystal is forming, and there are other substances present in the solution. These substances might be air bubbles or other minerals. They become trapped within the crystal during its growth. Air and moisture inclusions fall into the category of Fairy Frost, a non-mineral inclusion which we discussed a few weeks ago.

I have some pictures of Included quartz which I have adopted out through Arkansas Crystal Works, some of them from Arkansas, some from the Cascade Mountains in Washington. Crystal may be included with any number of minerals, some are more commonly found paired with quartz than others. The pictures I am going to share represent just a tiny percentage of the possible pairings. The inclusions may also appear in different forms, such as blobs, spots, specks, phantoms, whole minerals, needles, Rutile, etc. Here is a picture of Chlorite needles in quartz, (these crystals came from the Cascade Mountains in Washington State.)

KEYS and IMPRINTS - Unlock Answers & Adapt During Growth

This week we're going to discuss Imprints and Keys. Remember we talked about Growth Interference last week, and that it is caused by the introduction of another mineral to the crystal during its growth. Keys and Imprints are caused by crystals being in close proximity to one another as they grow.

To the left is a visual example of how they are created: Take a crystal, and stab the top of the point into a cylinder of clay (surrogate for our crystal in this example) and then remove the crystal (pictured is actually a round object, but pretend it is a crystal). The impression left in the clay is the Key. Sometimes Keys have a pointy bottom and sometimes a flat bottom. example of pokey bottomed Key (photo credit: mysticmerchant.com)Pictured to the right is an example of a pointy bottomed Key in a crystal. This would be caused by the tip end of another crystal penetrating the original crystal as it grew.

GROWTH INTERFERENCE CRYSTALS - A Lesson in Adaptation

Today we're going to talk about Growth Interference which is a condition in which a crystal changes shapes as it grows due to the presence of another mineral which acts as an obstruction. These shapes might be squares and triangles, and more often than not, it looks like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasses.

Here are some crystals with the buzz-saw type of Growth Interference:

GOLDEN HEALER QUARTZ CRYSTAL - For Use In Healing Applications

This week we're going to discuss Golden Healer quartz crystals.

They are quartz crystals that are partially or totally covered with a transparent golden-yellow mineral. The coating ranges from iridescent yellow to rusty dark orange, from total coverage to skippy, partial coverage. This coating doesn't come off in an acid bath. Often the lightly coated Golden Healers will have rainbow iridescence on the outer layer (like rainbows you see on oil slicks, also called "natural rainbow aura"). These points emit an especially high energy.

TAKING A BREATHER  - A Reminder About Crystal Names & Descriptions

This week I decided to postpone the post about Golden Healers (til maybe late week?). Surprisingly (to me) there was a LOT of controversy about the post on Feminine, Masculine and Yin/Yang crystals... I thought it would be a good idea to revisit why we are going over these different names and what they really mean. I have already addressed this in an earlier post but I think it's sometimes a good idea to go back.

Without further ado, I'm just going to cut and paste the post I wrote on this topic from July 2013:
