Eight-Sided Face (Grounding) Quartz Crystal

PLEASE SEE \”SPECIFICATIONS\” TAB FOR APPROXIMATE SIZE
Physical description: These crystals are also called Grounding crystals, and they have eight edges on the main face. Usually each side or wall has a face or roof. While it isn’t uncommon to have seven sides to a face, in the case of Eight-Sided Face crystals, there is an extra side. This is a rare occurrence (and there are still only six sides on the body of these crystals).

Metaphysical description: A stop sign also has eight sides; use this to remember that these crystals help you to stop and ground. I like to put my thumb on the grounding face (the largest face) and use it that way. You may also press and hold the grounding face to ground energy in any chakra.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SIZE:

THE IMAGE SHOWN IS AN EXAMPLE OF AN EIGHT-SIDED FACE CRYSTAL . YOU WILL RECEIVE A SIMILAR CRYSTAL, BUT NOT THE CRYSTAL PICTURED.

*The size of these crystals will vary. I will send the most representative example of the type of configuration ordered, so if a crystal is small, but an excellent example of the particular configuration, I will send that crystal. If it is particularly small, I may send two in one bag (say 1/2 inch or so)… I aim for a size range from 1 to 2 inches long, 1/2 to 3/4 inch diameter.

Your Eight-Sided Face crystal will come with a business-card-sized printed description of the characteristics and special qualities of the crystal within. Crystal sizes may vary greatly in size as I am selecting for the shape, not the size.

I have packaged it with the description card to help you learn the identifying characteristics and uses of this special configuration.

This crystal is sent as a representative sample of an Eight-Sided Face crystal. It isn’t necessarily sent for its size, and sometimes may be Empathic (chipped, dinged or damaged), if it is an excellent representation of this type (for example, a very good Manifestation point in an Empathic chunk, or an excellent Record Keeper on a partial point).

Thanks, and ENJOY!!

01737 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

Initially, this Arkansas quartz crystal point looks Empathic. However everywhere that there is a divot or mis-shaped area, that is actually crystal Imprints. There is a cluster base, Lineated Sides, Bridges and is an Eight-Sided Face Grounding crystal (with some of the face edges missing due to Imprints).

IMPRINT – Imprints are indentations or marks left on the sides or faces of a crystal where they grew in close proximity to another crystal. Crystals with Imprints show how something is affected by outside influences. The original structure adapts to its environment as outside influences change its shape or form. This allows for growth and change, while still maintaining its basic inherent truth and beauty. An Imprint is a type of Key, so the characteristics of Key crystals applies as well.

LINEATED SIDES – Lineated Sides are horizontal striations across the sides of a point. Lineated Sides can be used like a zipper to access further knowledge within the crystal. If you have worked with your crystal for a while and feel ready for more information or feel a desire to go deeper, you can unzip the crystal to receive the next layer of information. I experience this as receiving a deeper knowing or understanding that seems to be released quietly after they are unzipped. If you drag your thumbnail down the side of a point with deep striations, you are “unzipping” the crystal. To zip it back up, drag your thumb from the base back to the tip. This is like hanging up the phone after a conversation. It lets the crystal know you are “done for now” and you can pick up where you left off later. I used to think that unzipping would be like opening a box and looking inside, revealing a few more items, and once you see them, that is all. It isn’t quite like this though. It is more like opening the box, looking down inside and seeing that the bottom of the box opens to infinite space. There is no end to the amount of “extra” you can receive as you work with and unzip your crystal. It is literally like peeling an onion that has infinite layers. Just remember when you finish with your session to thank the crystal for its help, and zip back up until next time.

BRIDGE – A Bridge is a smaller crystal (or crystals) penetrating and located partially in and partially out of a larger crystal. Bridge Crystals help to bridge between worlds. It may be the inner and outer worlds between your inner and outer Selves or between yourself and others in the physical environment in which you now live. They are helpful in any area you might imagine needing a bridge. They can help you heal and get in touch with your inner child (bridging the gap between your outer self and your inner self). They are also good for connection and perspective.

EIGHT SIDED FACE GROUNDING – Eight Sided Face crystals are also called Grounding crystals. They have eight edges on the main face. This is a fairly rare occurrence (and there are still only six sides on the body of these crystals). A stop sign also has eight sides; use this to remember that Eight Sided Face or Grounding crystals help you to stop and ground. I like to put my thumb on the Eight Sided Face  (Grounding face) which is the largest face and work with it that way. You may also press and hold the grounding face to ground energy in any chakra.

CRYSTAL MANDALAS: (Learn about crystal by COLORING!) Volume 2

This is a coloring book of hand drawn crystal mandalas. The books are split up alphabetically, you can start with whichever book you want! VOLUME 2 consists of E through G (Eight-Sided Face through Growth Interference).

The crystal mandalas came about as a way to make understanding the “anatomy” (form and structure) and \”physiology\” (function) of quartz crystal both easy and fun. While it IS a coloring book, it is really much more than that. It is a learning book. It is a relaxing book. It is a way to make learning the nuances of quartz crystal easy, fun, and memorable.

Each mandala picture you see here is an individual 11 x 11 design. I have combined 4 on each page just so you can see all the designs in the book (my shopping cart is limited to 5 images). They don\’t come like this in the book!

The books are all coil bound to lay flat for effortless coloring.

There are two copies of each crystal type so you may color one and leave the other in the book as a reference.

Learn about crystals as you color!

REVIEWS

Taking a walk through Understanding The Crystal People: A Handbook for Lightworkers was educational, enlightening and entertaining. There is so much to comprehend when one wishes to become a crystal guardian; even with my sizeable collection, I gleaned much knowledge from the reading of this book. Genn’s writing style is one that is peppered with visual examples (which were incredibly helpful to me) and stories from her past (which we can all learn from), all mixed together with a keen sense of humor (which is food for the soul); there were times when I found myself chuckling right along with her. Having known Genn for a great many years, I trust her, implicitly, when it comes to locating the very crystal that I am looking for. It is my privilege to be able to heartily endorse this magnificent book.

Michele Doucette, author of The Wisdom of Crystals and Healing the Planet and Ourselves: How To Raise Your Vibration

Understanding The Crystal People is so much more than a book about crystals. A must read for all Lightworkers, and anyone who has ever felt drawn to the subtle energy of crystals, this book teaches us, through the profound and ancient wisdom of the Crystal People, how to reconnect with ourselves (which also includes our own Divine purpose) and Gaia. Genn’s reverence for the Crystal People, important work in bringing them to light, in direct association with the immense knowledge that she gains from working alongside them, is illuminated in this powerful read. Written in Genn’s humorous and warm way of Being, a format that is easy to understand, Understanding The Crystal People also incorporates practical advice and tools on how we can implement the teachings.

Meg Adams, Social Media Specialist and Viral Publicist

Genn John is far more than an experienced resource for guidance about crystal. The knowledge she has acquired, from her lifelong bond with these amazing stones, is shared on every page, but what makes this book invaluable is her ability to help you understand the crystals you have brought into your life and why you selected them (or rather, why you responded when they chose to call out to you). Genn combines an unassuming manner, a rollicking sense of humor, and a literally out-of-this-world connection with crystal. We have all become aware of the horse and dog whisperers within our midst; through the very pages of Understanding The Crystal People, we now have access to Genn John, the renowned Crystal Whisperer!

Patricia Walton, Clairvoyant and Spiritual Medium

We witness the beginning work of a future famous artisan and what a marvelous service she will bring forth, communicating the true helpful intent and service that the Crystal People offer to humanity. “Ask Genn” will become a byword for every collector or purchaser, so they can receive the true guidance and message from their crystal companions.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Crystal People … what a concept!

I know if you\’re reading this book you consider yourself a crystal person. The Crystal People I am speaking of, however, are the crystals themselves; sentient beings millennia older than ourselves!

A new energy is arriving. We\’re moving out of an era of following others\’ authority and more fully into following self-directed, intuitive guidance.

In this book you will learn how to listen to the crystal in your own way, rather than hearing their voice through someone else\’s filter. I will teach you what you need to know in order to do this.

You will learn where the crystal comes from, how they are formed and what language they speak.

You will learn how to speak that language and how to connect with your crystal friend.

I know that many of you have read the names of the different quartz configurations, but I suspect that some of you may still be finding it difficult to determine, with absolute certainty, what YOUR crystal is and how to best put it to use for personal and global healing.

Many books list so many different possible uses for each configuration that it is difficult (if not impossible) to remember the strongest ability of each type of crystal.

I have listed several common configurations, providing you with both detailed descriptions, as well as drawings, to further help you identify your crystal friends.

I will teach you a step-by-step method for reading the physical characteristics of your crystal.

In having included one or two uses for each configuration, I have also left room for you to record your own impressions and experiences.
It is much more important that you determine how each crystal type works for you rather than depending on the opinions of others.

You will learn how to cleanse, clear and program your crystal.
I have suggested many different uses that include healing, gridding and energy amplification, among others.

I have also taken the time to cover where you may find crystals and even how to gather your own.

Are you ready to embark on your journey?

Let\’s go!

MY INTRODUCTION TO THE CRYSTAL PEOPLE

Grandparents who are rock hounds, well, rock!

I grew up in California and spent my formative years scrambling up hills, running wild in the mountains and combing the beaches.

We looked for square nails and purple bottles at old home sites, hematite and gold in the mountains, and agate on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest.

My grandparents were collectors and if I was lucky I got to tag along.

They used to gather Arkansas crystal and ship it back home to California. I remember growing up looking at crystal clusters sparkling and shining in the California sunshine.

Little did I know that I would become friends with these majestic beings!

How lucky am I? How lucky are you? I\’m going to teach you to connect, but, alas, I am getting ahead of myself.

Let me start from the very beginning of my journey.

Besides rocks and collecting, art has been my passion my entire life. I began my path as an adult majoring in the fields of Fine Art and Graphic Design.

After hearing so many people ask me what in the world I was going to do with a Degree in Art, and internalizing all of the negative reasons why this was a bad choice, I abandoned my dream and entered the field of Nursing.

My mother was a nurse, several aunts were nurses. It was the logical step, or so I thought, but logic and happiness don\’t always go hand in hand.
