This is a large warm smoky citrine elestial from Brazil. Capped with misty veils, the main body of the crystal is a lovely golden citrine color, while smoky phantoms trace the raised elestial markings. This crystal will stand unsupported, with the large attachment of feldspar providing a kickstand of sorts. The back of the crystal shows growth lines where the crystal grew around mica. The mica either dissolved or broke away as there are only small attachments of mica still present.
Smoky elestials have a range of color from light to dark and different degrees of depth to their formation, often occurring with phantoms and occasionally even enhydro bubbles. Every smoky elestial has a unique energy; however they all have certain qualities in common. They all have grounding energies, yet combined with their higher vibration energies, they give you the comfort and security you need to explore, knowing that help is nearby if you need it. They make the higher vibration energies more accessible, adjusting it to your current needs and abilities. They are companion crystals, working with you as you grow, matching your needs. They are all master healers; most have a golden energy like honey that is soothing and nourishing. They work to cleanse and purify all systems of the body. Every healing collection should include at least one smoky elestial!
Feldspar is the name of the silicate family which includes amazonite, labradorite, sunstone, and moonstone to name a few. Feldspar assists one to embrace the new by detaching from the old. It encourages self-love and self-awareness focusing on the positive aspects of yourself. It soothes skin irritations and muscle dysfunctions such as chronic cramps or fatigue.
Mica has a reflective quality helping one see a reflection of that which is true. It can aid one to look in detail at a situation, and identify the areas of importance. It provides for self-reflections, and allows one to recognize that you see in people what you want to see, not necessarily what is there. It allows aids one to recognize the contrary characteristics of another which are within oneself, and assists one in acknowledging these traits. Mica can be used to diminish anger and nervous energy. It has also been used to treat insomnia and alleviate the excessive sleeping requirement of mononucleosis.
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.
Smoky citrine crystals are quite beautiful in formation and energy and are an unusual combination. Smoky citrine crystals can occur as a blend of the two or as citrine with smoky phantoms. Citrine helps to maintain the clarity of energy, lifting the energy of smoky quartz up through your energy system. They are a powerful combination to work with when embarking on new ventures, especially in business. It helps to remove obstacles, keeping your spirits high during times of adversity. By stimulating your positive energies is helps you to quickly overcome your challenges and curb self-limiting thoughts and actions. Continued work with smoky citrine helps to awaken the crown chakra and develop your intuition and other gifts.
