The knowledge contained within this crystal is just amazing, it is like walking into a library. In fact I was certain this crystal must have a profusion of record keepers, but I could only find one that is not very well defined. Regardless this crystal has much to teach you. The more you learn, the more you will be surprised that many of your answers lie within.
When we say high altitude Himalayan Quartz we aren’t kidding, these crystals are mined by hand at an extraordinary 23,000 ft! Most high-altitude quartz is mined around 10,000 - 16,000 ft. Our crystals are from the Ganesh Himal whose peaks lie mainly on the Nepalese side of the border, however some peaks lie on the borders with Tibet. It’s only a man-defined border that defines these as Himalayan crystals instead of Tibetan crystals. We have a beautiful array of these crystals including citrine, forest green chlorite phantoms, hematite inclusions and much more. You’ll see them referred to as either Himalayan crystals or Nepalese crystals in our listings. There is truly a profound difference in the vibration of the energy of these crystals. It is very high and pure, yet still deeply connected to the resonances of the earth. You can feel both aspects of the divine energy as well as the earth energy; it’s such an amazing experience. These crystals have been honored from before they were mined. The miners hand harvest the crystals with deep respect to the mountain and the crystals. These miners adopt the village they are mining near, making sure that young and old alike are fed and clothed, as well as providing education. These crystals are on the expensive side, but considering the care and reverence to the earth and the crystals, as well as the altitude and distance they have traveled, they are truly a rare treasure.
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.
The etched quartz crystal can be recognized by the existence of abrasions upon the outer areas of the crystal. The abrasions appear to be a type of hieroglyphics. This formation has been used to facilitate contact and the transfer of information from the Ancient Egyptian civilizations and from Lemuria and Atlantis. The transliteration of the symbols brings information relevant to ones life at the time of translation. They were once used in the healing temples of the ancient civilizations and the markings also contain information of experiences in which they have participated. They also have contained information with respect to the healing methodology which has been proven successful over eons of time and throughout the universe. They have been accessed during the meditative state and have provided information concerning techniques utilized in the ancient civilizations of the Earth and of other locations in the universe.
Etched quartz is usually a personal meditation crystal. Meditation with the crystal is easily accomplished by placing the hieroglyphs upon the third-eye. Subsequent to placement, close the eyes, still and open the mind, initiate circular breathing, relax, and be prepared to receive the information.
If one is meant to experience an etched quartz crystal, the universe will provide. The etched crystal which is made available to one contains the information which will be beneficial to ones personal development and/or will provide information which will assist one in helping another.
The term chlorite actually encompasses a wide variety of minerals, which interestingly does not usually include chlorine as you might think. It is in the silicate family and is associated with clay. It is known for its beautiful formations within crystals, usually as phantoms and often bright green in color. Chlorite can appear red, yellow, white, lavender and black. Sometimes it forms in small crystals and give the appearance of moss within a crystal. Chlorite inclusions give crystals a has strong anti cancer properties. It is a very good crystal for physical regeneration as it helps us absorb and use the nutrients we take in. Chlorite enables our body to receive and use more efficiently the energy of the quartz while quartz itself amplifies the energy of the chlorite. Chlorite included quartz helps you to work through emotional issues and to discard thought of self-judgment and harsh self- criticism.
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.
