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.
A sister to smokey quartz, Morion quartz is very rare black quartz and is formed through natural radiation caused by near by uranium deposits. Morion itself is not radioactive and is safe to carry. True morion quartz is rare and frequently black quartz is recreated by irradiating quartz in commercial settings. While similar physical results occur, the crystals have a much different feel. Natural morion quartz retains some translucence when held up to the light, while altered quartz does not. Protect their deep color from sun exposure as they will fade black to gray under prolonged exposure. "Morions" were a type of helmet used around the time of the Conquistadors, which speaks to the stone's protective and shielding qualities. Their energy assists you in shadow work, aid you to face the dark aspects of self and to dissipate self-imposed obstacles. They reconnect you to yourself, assisting you to be true in thought and actions. They are very calming when you feel overwhelmed and are comforting in times of grief. They can also dispel nausea, dizziness, and shortness of breath due to anxiety attacks.
