This is a really cool crystal. It has an unusual tabby formation with strong elestial markings on one side. The growth pattern gives it a curved appearance that allows it to nestle nicely in the hand. Blue tourmaline (indocolite) inclusions streak across the interior, two even join meeting at a right angle. A companion nestles at its side with a pastel rainbow to mark where they join. The energy is very high and bright. Truly a delightful spirit!
A crystal with a point at each end is called double terminated (DT). It is believed that they have the ability to receive or transmit energy from both ends. They are used for alignment, patience, perseverance, protection, dreaming, and astral projection. Double terminated crystals strengthen energy flow, and are especially useful when you need to share or exchange energy between you and another person. Double terminated crystals are very important to people doing healing work for themselves or others.
A crystal with a flattened tabular shape and two of its opposite sides are twice as wide, or more, than its other sides, giving the appearance of a tablet is called a Tabby crystal. It is believed they can help us access information and are considered the ultimate communications crystal. They are a bridge between our adult self and our child like spirit. They can help us lighten up and laugh a lot.
Curved crystals are quite rare. The structure of the curved crystal provides for a continuous alignment of the physical meridians and the nervous system. In addition is aligns the physical, emotional, mental, etheric, and astral bodies, singularly and with another.
Rainbows occur when light is refracted causing a prismatic effect, usually along a plane or inclusions within a crystal. The refraction is often temperature sensitive causing the rainbow to appear and disappear. It is believed that these crystals exhibit the closest manifestation of pure white light that can be witnessed on the physical plane. Rainbow crystals are used during meditation to escort us into the realm of the pure white light and can bring depth and clarity to dreams, help manifest wishes, and overcome negativity to be able to love life in the present moment.
Rainbows bring happiness. They help deal with negativity and help to maintain the constant awareness of love. Because of the rainbows, they produce the full spectrum of colors, the white light of healing and perfections being dispersed into the individual rays of the rainbow. Rainbow quartz can be used on all chakras.
Blue tourmaline is also known as indicolite and is a rare color in the tourmaline world. Blue tourmaline in quartz is a very rare combination, and has been stated to be rarer than ajoite! Blue tourmaline has a soothing energy and works both the throat and third eye chakras. They are emotionally healing, helping you to detach from the situation so that healing may occur. It is especially healing for those suffering post traumatic stress. It has a tranquil energy that also revitalizes you when you need it most. Blue tourmaline is also known for its ability to open the third eye and enhance your higher awareness. It assists one to accept and trust their intuition. It also assists with communications working with one to verbalize both thoughts and emotions with greater ease. The presence of quartz amplifies the energy of the blue tourmaline.
Elestial formations are truly beautiful; they are complex in their simplicity. Most elestials are smoky; however you can find this formation in all types of quartz. Elestials are known for their complex layering and etched surfaces. Elestials crystallize in aqueous environments which create their fantastic formation. They are known by many different names, jacare quartz, skeletal quartz, and crocodile quartz just to name a few. Elestials can form as interlocking plates and complex etchings some say the formations look like the scales of a crocodile (hence the origins of that name). With skeletal elestials, you can see layers of crystals almost like the layers of an onion; they are often accented by clay inclusions.
Elestials can also have doorways and self-healed formations; they can appear as wands, scepters, overlays, and sometimes as a combination between an elestial and cathedral. I find them endlessly fascinating; it is so easy to get lost in their formations. While they have certain formations in common, there really is no such thing as a typical elestial.
As elestials form in water they have a strong emotional energy. Elestials are master healers and teachers who work on many levels. They work through the many layers of your body releasing toxins, dissolving obstacles and creating energy flow. Working with elestial crystals will bring an abundance of lessons and change! Elestial Quartz crystals used in body layouts will purge toxicity from the major organs into the bloodstream, from which they can then be released from the body by drinking plenty of water.
The translation for Elestial is “Crystal of the Angels” and thus has a strong link with the Angelic realm. One may retrieve information stored in Elestials by running your hands over the etching of the crystal. Before long your hands start moving on their own and you are reading the crystal much the same way as the blind use Braille language. It is best to clear the mind and have no expectations through this process.
Clear quartz is made up of silicon dioxide, the most abundant mineral on the planet. No wonder it is the most common tool in the mineral kingdom, as well as the most versatile. I like to call it the general practitioner of the crystal world as it works with all chakras. Clear quartz is also known as white quartz or milky quartz when it has an abundance of interior veils and planes. Often crystals will have a mixture of different clarities throughout the interior. Quartz crystals are graded on their clarity, luster, and overall condition of the stone, with the higher degrees of clarity being more valuable. It is interesting to note that although chemically the same, quartz from different regions vibrates with subtle differences.
Quartz attracts and enables you to use more life force energy. Have it around you, on you, or in elixir form, in you! Quartz seeks to bring balance on all our bodies’ levels. Quartz has the ability to receive, store and send energy, this makes it a powerful manifestation tool.
Hold/gaze into the crystal, put your thought/need (what you wish to manifest) into the crystal, the crystal receives the thought (and the feeling behind the thought) then stores and transmits those thoughts and feelings into the ethers. Thus, even while you’re not thinking about that particular manifestation, the crystal is still putting it out. Thus drawing your manifestation towards you at a much greater rate than before. Power tools, you have to love ‘em!
Many refer to this process as programming; many books state that a crystal can hold only one program. They have just found a way to store terabytes of data into a single bubble that makes up the mist you see in the Quartz. My feeling is that Quartz crystals can in fact hold and run more programs than we could give in a life time! Quartz is one of the most flexible crystal tools around. It is very responsive to our intent, what you intend is what you get, to this point it is also one of the most powerful tools and should be treated as such.
Crystals are our passion. As such, we treat each crystal as an individual spirit, which is why we insist on individual listings for all of our crystal offerings. We care deeply for the crystals, ensuring that we nurture them while they are entrusted to our guardianship.
