This beautiful spirit doesn't look like mush at first glance, but don't let first impressions fool you. This is a gorgeous spirit that has a warm vibrant energy. And the formations are stunning! While there is no true termination to this beautiful spirit, you'll soon not even notice as you explore all there is to know about this crystal. One face is just covered in etched faces that glisten in the light. There are etchings all over the surface, with plenty of self healing. The interior is streaked with thin blue tourmaline (indocolite) inclusions.
The energy is warm and inviting, truly a spirit for meditation and healing. Self-reflection is encouraged, allowing you to view the past in an almost detached manner so that you can learn from events rather than get lost in the emotions attached to it. It encourages growth, self acceptance and spiritual development.
Blue tourmaline is also known as indicolite and is a rare color in the tourmaline world. Blue tourmaline in quartz is a very rare combination, and has been stated to be rarer than ajoite! Blue tourmaline has a soothing energy and works both the throat and third eye chakras. They are emotionally healing, helping you to detach from the situation so that healing may occur. It is especially healing for those suffering post traumatic stress. It has a tranquil energy that also revitalizes you when you need it most. Blue tourmaline is also known for its ability to open the third eye and enhance your higher awareness. It assists one to accept and trust their intuition. It also assists with communications working with one to verbalize both thoughts and emotions with greater ease. The presence of quartz amplifies the energy of the blue tourmaline.
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.
Natural citrine has long been one of our favorites of the quartz world. Iron inclusions in the quartz formations give rise to beautiful hues of yellow to yellow gold. This desirable color is often imitated by heat treating amethyst, which gives a more orange hue to the crystals. Natural citrine stimulates the solar plexus and crown chakras assisting one to bring higher vibrational energies into the physical body. It can give you an energetic pick up at any time by placing at your solar plexus and breathing deeply for a few minutes. Visualizing bright white energy streaming into your solar plexus will boost its effect. The warmth of citrine has a soothing effect that counters anxiety and stress. Personally, I use citrine in conjunction with labradorite to help keep panic/anxiety attacks at bay.
Citrine is also known as the "Merchant's Stone". It is quite helpful in acquiring and maintaining wealth. It is an excellent stone for clearing the aura and for aligning the auric body with the physical structure, diminishing the "muddy" areas in both the aura and the physical body. It can act to stabilize the emotions, to dispel anger, and to encourage one to "look toward the sunrise", the freshness of beginnings and the reality of excellence.
