YIN/YANG QUARTZ CRYSTALS – Physically, What Makes a Crystal Yin/Yang ?

The last couple of posts, we have been reviewing Feminine and Masculine crystals. Before we finish the three part series by talking about Yin/Yang (part Masculine, part Feminine) crystals, first a note:

As always, whenever I mention Masculine or Feminine in regard to crystals, people tend to flip their lids! This time was no exception. It would seem that in our societal complex right now, anything to do with "gender" is triggering knee-jerk reactions in people. If you find the use of these terms in relation to quartz crystal offensive, please take a deep breath and allow me to explain.

MASCULINE QUARTZ CRYSTALS – Physically, What Makes a Crystal Masculine ?

Last blog post we discussed Feminine quartz crystals, today we’re going to revisit Masculine quartz crystals. As with our discussion of Feminine crystals, we’re talking about what a “Masculine” quartz crystal looks like. In this first part, we’re discussing whether a crystal is called Masculine by features only, not by energy.

In the past I have called this an “anatomy lesson” because basically we’ll be discussing whether a crystal presents physically what has been described as Masculine. (In the next post we’ll revisit Yin/Yang quartz crystals.)

FEMININE QUARTZ CRYSTALS - Physically, What Makes a Crystal Feminine ?

Today we're going to revisit Feminine quartz crystals, with the distinction that we're talking about what a "Feminine" quartz crystal looks like. We're discussing whether a crystal is called Feminine by features only, not by energy.

In the past I have called this an "anatomy lesson" because basically we'll be discussing whether a crystal presents physically what has been described as Feminine. The next two posts we'll revisit Masculine and Yin/Yang quartz crystals. I have described this is whether a crystal is described as masculine (e.g. has "man parts"), is described physically as feminine (e.g. has "lady parts") or presents physically as Yin/Yang (e.g. as a mix of both).

ARTEMIS or CANDLE CRYSTAL - REVISIT

We're going to revisit all the quartz types, using some drawings from my Crystal Mandala books(in which I have drawn a mandala of each type of crystal, condensing the information to 4 to 5 items to make remembering easier).

As promised in my earlier blog post, here is the information about my upcoming workshop at the Ozark Research Institute's 28th Annual Dowsing and Alternative Health Convention! Unfortunately, I'm sending this a little late, the computer ate the original post. But here it is... come on by and pick up a few excellent classes!

Anyway, it is going to be in at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1325 N Palak Drive, in Fayetteville, Arkansas. There is a pre-convention workshop on Friday the 15th, and the convention is Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

GENN'S NEW BOOK IS FINISHED ! CRYSTAL MANDALAS: Anatomy & Physiology of Quartz Crystals (Volumes 1 - 4) COLORING BOOKS !

Well, you might have noticed I have been a little quiet lately. I've been madly working on finishing my latest series of books. They are currently at the printer and will arrive next week! I wanted to get them finished for a workshop I will be teaching in Fayetteville (Arkansas) for the Ozark Research Institute's 28th Annual Dowsing & Alternative Health Convention on April 15th through 18th. (I will be writing a blog post about this in case some of you can attend!) I will also be in Hot Springs in May at the Crystal and Crystal Skull Festival  (also talking about the new books and doing crystal readings). Anyway, the books are AVAILABLE NOW for pre-order. (You can click here to open a new tab to the order page.)

I've been working on this series for a couple of years now, and of course, all my friends, when they saw the great hullaballoo about the "adult coloring books", were on me to "HURRY HURRY HURRY, Genn!! Get your book out!"  Well, while I agreed that "striking while the iron was hot" seemed the smart thing to do, first, I didn't want the books to be confused as "just another coloring book in a vast sea of coloring books" and second, (and more important) I wanted them to be exactly right. Also, while the series ARE books which you color, they are FAR MORE than just "coloring books". They are learning books. Relaxing books. A way to make learning the nuances of quartz crystal easy, fun, and memorable. There is something magical about opening the right-brain, or creative side, that helps to bring the logical, or linear, left-brain side into more clear focus. This is what I hope to achieve with this series of books.

ARTEMIS or CANDLE Crystal - Speed Energy To Its Goal

Artemis or Candle CrystalThis 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.

photo credit NEATSTUFF.NET/AVALONCandle crystals should not be confused with Candle Quartz. Candle Quartz is a crystal which looks a lot like a Cathedral or Lightbrary crystal (see picture, right). Imagine a candle in the shape of a crystal, but with the wick at the base (turn the crystal upside down in your mind, the base at the top with a wick and the point at the bottom). The wax would drip down the sides, in subsequent layers, toward the tip (which is upside down), so when you turned the crystal back upright, it would look like a dripping candle and is called Candle Quartz. (As an aside, there are some really helpful diagrams of a lot of these different crystal types from a mineralogical standpoint (rather than metaphysical) on The Quartz Page, I would highly recommend bookmarking and visiting the site!)
