Oh boy! What a beauty this clear cathedral is! The pictures truly don't do this crystal justice. Misty and bright, this Brazilian cathedral has lovely castle formations on one side that feature trigonic record keepers and etched glyphs along the sides. The opposite side of the crystal shows a large mica patch that has tiny tourmaline crystals among the plates. The exciting thing about this area, is that the quartz grew in a stepped pattern around the mica!
Trigonic record keepers are inverted, indented triangles that create doorways into the crystal. Trigonic record keepers are used to help you access the "inner knowledge" of the crystal and yourself in meditation.
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.

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.

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.

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.
