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.

ELESTIAL CRYSTALS - Connect with angelic energies

This week we’ll be discussing Elestial crystals which is a crystal type that falls into the category of crystals' overall shape, such as Curved. This means we aren't counting edges of faces, looking at surface features or otherwise looking at PARTS of a crystal, but we are looking at the overall shape of the crystal.

Elestial crystals are described as crystals which "have natural terminations over the body and face of an etched and/or layered crystal". So, what does that mean? Simply, that they really aren't in the shape of a traditional point. They are layered all over with self-healed looking surfaces.

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.

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 Clusters. The Drusy clusters consist of tiny crystal points in their very formation, and may be encrusted sandstone, quartz or other mineral matrices. I like to call it “Sugar Drusy” because the tiny crystals making up the Drusy look like sugar crystals. Often you will see tiny quartz Drusy growing on agate and inside geodes.

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.

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 Terminated crystals.

double terminated pointsDouble Terminated crystals have a termination on both ends. The point or end of the crystal is called the termination. It is confusing to refer to a single crystal as a “point” and to also call the end of a single crystal the “point,” so we call the pointy end a "termination".

    I have a question. I just recently (in the past two days) started to read your blog. I have never worked with crystals before.
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 swimming very near it, this is what the Dolphin crystal looks like - a larger crystal with a smaller crystal riding alongside. dolphin crystal with long, thin 'baby' The "baby" in the Dolphin crystal may be long and thin as they are in the crystals above, or they may be shorter and fatter as in the crystals below: dolphin crystal with shorter 'baby' Alternately, the "baby" may be quite a lot smaller than the main point, as in these crystals: dolphin crystal with very small 'baby' Sometimes the smaller or "baby" crystal will look like a baby jumping. As you can tell, not every Dolphin crystal will look the same, and some will look quite different than you might expect.

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 quartz crystal - arkansascrystalworks.comCurved 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!?
