You'll want to take a closer look at the lovely formations of this slender Tibetan quartz crystal. While there is not visible carbon inclusions, the energy still vibrates high and bright. One end has some damage, but it doesn't diminish the crystal in any way. The intact termination has beautiful miniature lightbrary formation.
These crystals are from the Tibetan province of old, mined at an altitude of 12,000-14,000 feet! These crystals are mined by hand and brought down the mountain in a sack on the back of a yak. They have a wide array of these of formations including golden healer, carbon included, enhydros, elestials, and scepters. Many of these beautiful crystals are double terminated. They have joyful energy that is such a pleasure to be around. They are “old souls” and once you pick one up, it’s hard to put it down!
Tibetan quartz always has an enlightened, almost holy energy to it. It may be that it has absorbed the wonderful vibrations from its proximity to one of the holiest areas on the planet. Its energy is quite strong, and this is a wonderful Master Healer whose abilities are not limited by its physical manifestation. In other words, everything that can be ascribed by its physical attributes, they are only the tip of the iceberg!
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.
Cathedral quartz is a beautiful quartz formation that is often confused with the geode formations, such as amethyst. Cathedral quartz often forms lesser points that frequently resemble turrets of medieval castles. Frequently they are highly etched and many have record keepers as well as trigonic record keepers. Cathedral quartz is associated with the higher realms and is a high vibrational crystal. They store an amazing amount of information. They work with you to open your higher consciousness. They keep one moving forward along their path, helping to prevent stagnation and regression. These crystals have gentle energy which is often very powerful. Their soothing energy makes them beautiful additions to meditation and healing work. Cathedral quartz crystals are master healers and will work on all levels and chakras. They are also excellent assistants in group work such as meditations or healing rooms.
These crystals have doorways in them, more often than not, in their castling definition. To travel into the crystal, just gaze into the doorway, you will see it open and your consciousness will be drawn into the crystal. From there you can travel into different chambers and receive information that you are ready for at that time. You can also travel in inner and outer space in complete safety within the crystal.
Clear Cathedrals are referred to as Lightbrary Cathedrals. Lightbraries are said to house the Libraries of Light! Citrine lightbrary cathedrals bring a rich healing energy that truly excel when working on the physical and spiritual bodies. For healers they help to bolster confidence in your work and to trust your intuition and abilities.
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.
