Etched Quartz Crystal

Physical description: Etched crystals have abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal that look like hieroglyphics or writing of some sort. I’ve seen them called Lightning Strike Quartz, as well.

Metaphysical description: To me, the etching on crystals is symbolic in that it looks like writing. (For example, in the case of Lightning Strike, it looks like a lightning bolt zigzagging across.) I feel that the best way to use these crystals depends on the particular shape the etching takes (refer to Sacred Sigil crystals). You frequently find etching on Gas Phantoms.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SIZE:

THE IMAGE SHOWN IS AN EXAMPLE OF AN ETCHED 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 Etched 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 Etched 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!!

01747 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This looks to be two fused Laser Wand, Lemurian Seed quartz crystals (one body, two terminations) with amazing Etching and Sigils, super water clear (Masculine).

LASER WAND – Laser Wand crystals are thicker at the base than the tip. The termination is usually quite small in comparison to the rest of the point. While the body of Laser Wand may not be curved, the edges of the sides are often curved and heavily Lineated. Lemurian Seed Crystals are often in the shape of a Laser Wand. Laser Wands are good in both inner and outer work. I find them to have a very precise, narrow focus. Imagine writing with a mechanical pencil versus a crayon.

LEMURIAN SEED CRYSTAL – What I have come to understand is that MANY MANY crystals were “seeded” by both Atlantis and Lemuria, in crystal “farms” if you will. They were placed in the best areas for optimal growth and energetically tended. Therefore, technically speaking, many (if not most) crystals could technically be called “seeded Lemurian crystals”. TECHNICALLY speaking. However, what we now have is a specific TYPE of crystal which we have all agreed to call “Lemurian Seed Crystals”. As a reminder, these are crystals with a specific formation (three heavily stepped, laddered or striated sides), which are often Laser Wands (though not always), and which usually have clarity and a specific strong energy.

MASCULINE – Very clear points are described as Masculine. They may be optically clear, or they may have some Fairy Frost. The base of a Masculine crystal may be dense with frost, however if more of the point is clear than cloudy, it is described as Masculine. Remember not to have pre-conceived notions. Just because a point is masculine by description doesn’t automatically mean it can only present masculine energy (the same is also true for Feminine crystals). Masculine crystals are helpful when you need to get to the point; they have a sharp and direct energy. Yang in nature, Masculine crystals are more action-oriented and the energy projects rather than recedes.

ETCHED – Etched crystals have abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal that look like hieroglyphics or writing of some sort. I’ve seen them called Lightning Strike Quartz, as well. To me, Etched crystals (or the etching on crystals) is symbolic in that it looks like writing. (For example, in the case of Lightning Strike, it looks like a lightning bolt zigzagging across.) I feel that the best way to use these crystals depends on the particular shape the etching takes (refer to Sigil crystals).

SIGILS – Sigils are any markings that represent an idea. For example, a dollar sign is a sigil that represents money and abundance. Crystals may have markings that resemble things such as snake skin, mountain ranges, water or even cities. Sigils are surface features; you view them the same way you view a Record Keeper. Because a Sacred Sigil is a marking that reminds us of an idea or invokes a memory or feeling, the meaning will depend on what the sigil represents to you.

01746 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Laser Wand Lemurian Seed Crystal quartz crystal point has a lot going on! There are SEVERAL Windows. I count one large Time Link (Window) that has a smaller Right Activation Window (Time Link to the Future). Moving around the point, I see another tiny Time Link (Window) and a small Left activation Window (Time Link to the Past). There is very interesting Sigils and Etching on the sides and geometrically shaped Keys that really feel like portals to me (more than usual). This crystal has an ancient and mysterious feel to it.

LASER WAND – Laser Wand crystals are thicker at the base than the tip. The termination is usually quite small in comparison to the rest of the point. While the body of Laser Wand may not be curved, the edges of the sides are often curved and heavily Lineated. Lemurian Seed Crystals are often in the shape of a Laser Wand.

WINDOW TIME / LINK – A Window or Time Link is a crystal with an extra diamond-shaped facet. By counting the facets or faces on the crystal, you will determine if you have more than six. If you do, you have a Window. This is a difficult crystal to read. It may take some practice to master this skill. Windows are one of the most commonly misidentified crystal configurations. Window crystals (Time Links) are good for scrying and accessing other realms, as well as for accessing our own soul (window to the soul). You may work with a window as an entry point (a way to get into an area). Window crystals also provide another point of access to an area that you might not have considered.

LEFT ACTIVATION WINDOW/TIME LINK TO PAST – A Left Activation Window is an extra facet that leans to the left. It looks like a parallelogram leaning left. They may be sliver-thin or thick. It may remind you of a back slash on a computer keyboard. Left Activation Windows are Time Links to the past. They also activate left-brain functions (such as logical thinking and analysis). If you are inclined to be more in one “brain” or the other, it is good to use the crystal of the hemisphere you tend not to use as much. Once you have reached a balance, you should use a Left and a Right Activation crystal together to maintain that balance.

RIGHT ACTIVATION WINDOW/TIME LINK TO FUTURE – A Right Activation Window is an extra facet that leans to the right. It looks like a parallelogram leaning right. They also may be sliver-thin or thick. It may remind you of a forward slash on a computer keyboard. Right leaning Windows are time links to the future. They also activate right brain functions (such as creativity, imagination and daydreaming). Just as with the Left-Activation Crystal, use the crystal of the hemisphere you tend to use less, and once you attain balance, use both together.

Because a Sacred Sigil is a marking that reminds us of an idea or invokes a memory or feeling, the meaning will depend on what the sigil represents to you.

KEY – Keys are indentations left by another crystal. Key crystals help you unlock answers to questions you may have. They help you to access anything which you   previously were blocked from accessing before you found the key. Is there an area which you could use help in accessing an answer which has previously been blocked to you? The energy of a Key crystal can help you to find an easier, more direct way in. Imagine this as easily opening the lock on the front door and walking right in (rather than having to check all the windows for one that is unlocked, climbing through, scraping your elbows and knocking your head). Ease of access is what Key crystal energy brings us. I like to put my finger in the Key as I work with the crystal. Meditate on the issue for which you need opening while holding the crystal in this way.

01744 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a stacked Laser Wand (Dolphin) Arkansas quartz crystal point. It has Etching, a Bridge/Inner Child and a tiny Trigonic Record Keeper. It is super water clear (Masculine).

LASER WAND – Laser Wand crystals are thicker at the base than the tip. The termination is usually quite small in comparison to the rest of the point. While the body of Laser Wand may not be curved, the edges of the sides are often curved and heavily Lineated. Lemurian Seed Crystals are often in the shape of a Laser Wand. Laser Wands are good in both inner and outer work. I find them to have a very precise, narrow focus. Imagine writing with a mechanical pencil versus a crayon.

DOLPHIN – Dolphin crystals are crystals which have a smaller crystal attached to (riding along) the side, not quite big enough to be a Twin or Soulmate, but aligned similarly. They are sometimes called a baby or a sidekick. If you picture a dolphin with a baby swimming very near it, this is what the Dolphin crystal looks like – a larger crystal with a smaller crystal riding alongside. Metaphysically, Dolphin crystals have a fun, playful energetic energy (that of the baby) and they can also have a nurturing, protective energy (that of the mother or adult). Imagine the energy to lovingly guide, teach and protect our young. This is the energy of a Dolphin Crystal. Anytime you need to tap into the playful, energetic, loving way dolphin mothers teach and guide their young you might ask for the assistance of or choose to work with a Dolphin crystal.

ETCHED – Etched crystals have abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal that look like hieroglyphics or writing of some sort. I’ve seen them called Lightning Strike Quartz, as well. To me, Etched crystals (or the etching on crystals) is symbolic in that it looks like writing. (For example, in the case of Lightning Strike, it looks like a lightning bolt zigzagging across.) I feel that the best way to use these crystals depends on the particular shape the etching takes (refer to Sigil crystals).

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.

TRIGONIC RECORD KEEPER – A Trigonic Record Keeper is an upside-down Record Keeper that you can easily feel and see. They are like tiny Keys, actually, except that they are shaped like a Record Keeper (triangle) and the flat “bottom” of the triangle is at the top, the point is facing down. These may be present on the faces or sides of a crystal. They are rare. Trigonic Record Keepers are crystals of transition. They are good for soul retrieval and can work as a key to the future. They have an interesting and unique energy. I think they feel like a traditional Record Keeper on steroids. The energy of a traditional Record Keepers is one of a quiet exciting knowledge or information held within the crystal itself. Trigonic Record Keepers feel more like a doorway to endless information. Accessing the knowledge of a Trigonic Record Keeper would be comparable to walking into a library, whereas that of a traditional Record Keeper would be like opening a book.

MASCULINE – Very clear points are described as Masculine. They may be optically clear, or they may have some Fairy Frost. The base of a Masculine crystal may be dense with frost, however if more of the point is clear than cloudy, it is described as Masculine. Remember not to have pre-conceived notions. Just because a point is masculine by description doesn’t automatically mean it can only present masculine energy (the same is also true for Feminine crystals). Masculine crystals are helpful when you need to get to the point; they have a sharp and direct energy. Yang in nature, Masculine crystals are more action-oriented and the energy projects rather than recedes.

01743 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This beautiful Arkansas quartz crystal point has a lot going on. It has Record Keepers, Growth Interference, Etching and a side kick up one side with a Key. I get Dolphin energy from it even though it isn’t a perfect example of a Dolphin (the baby is pretty well fused into the main crystal).

RECORD KEEPER – Record Keepers (also called Recorders) are crystals that have triangular markings on the faces. They seem to be three-dimensional, but they usually can’t be felt with your finger. You have to hold a crystal at just the right angle in order to see the Record Keeper. Usually they are very sharply edged, equilateral triangles; however, I have seen them with rounded bottoms as well (more arrowhead shaped), which I call non-traditional. There may only be one present on a face, or you may find layers and layers of them. Record Keepers will appear and disappear (I call that “popping”). It is said that a Record Keeper crystal will find its way to the person who needs the information it contains. Record Keepers contain special wisdom. They represent storage devices and the information can be accessed via a portal. I love Record Keepers, they have a special energy.

GROWTH INTERFERENCE – Growth Interference crystals have missing areas in the main point where another mineral was growing during the development of the crystal and then subsequently disappeared. Lots of times it looks like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. There used to be a mineral present that isn’t there anymore, so they sort of look magical to me. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasse. The properties of Growth Interference crystals are a bit like crystal imprints. They represent how we can adapt and grow around a certain situation (or person), and then if the situation no longer serves, it leaves, but not without leaving a mark.

ETCHED – Etched crystals have abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal that look like hieroglyphics or writing of some sort. I’ve seen them called Lightning Strike Quartz, as well. To me, Etched crystals (or the etching on crystals) is symbolic in that it looks like writing. (For example, in the case of Lightning Strike, it looks like a lightning bolt zigzagging across.) I feel that the best way to use these crystals depends on the particular shape the etching takes (refer to Sigil crystals).

KEY – Keys are indentations left by another crystal. Key crystals help you unlock answers to questions you may have. They help you to access anything which you   previously were blocked from accessing before you found the key. Is there an area which you could use help in accessing an answer which has previously been blocked to you? The energy of a Key crystal can help you to find an easier, more direct way in.

Ease of access is what Key crystal energy brings us. I like to put my finger in the Key as I work with the crystal. Meditate on the issue for which you need opening while holding the crystal in this way.

01736 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a really large Laser wand quartz crystal point with many different features. This crystal is not an Arkansas crystal. I don’t know where it is from (I found it in a shop), but my intuition tells me maybe it is Tibetan (but that’s just a guess). The facets appear to have been polished, the sides have not. There is EXCELLENT Etching and Sigils on the sides, and smoky Barnacles and Inner Child points/Bridges and deep Keys. Many of the Inner Child points are very deeply penetrating. It is a Devic Temple (Fairy Frost, Mirror Fractures and Rainbows). It has a very old soul, ancient feel to it. I really like it a lot !

LASER WAND – Laser Wand crystals are thicker at the base than the tip. The termination is usually quite small in comparison to the rest of the point. While the body of Laser Wand may not be curved, the edges of the sides are often curved and heavily Lineated. Lemurian Seed Crystals are often in the shape of a Laser Wand. Laser Wands are good in both inner and outer work. I find them to have a very precise, narrow focus. Imagine writing with a mechanical pencil versus a crayon.

SIGILS – Sigils are any markings that represent an idea. For example, a dollar sign is a sigil that represents money and abundance. Crystals may have markings that resemble things such as snake skin, mountain ranges, water or even cities. Sigils are surface features; you view them the same way you view a Record Keeper. Because a Sacred Sigil is a marking that reminds us of an idea or invokes a memory or feeling, the meaning will depend on what the sigil represents to you.

SMOKY – Smoky crystals are caused when a crystal is exposed to radiation. They may be natural or irradiated by man. Typically, natural Smoky crystals are usually a lighter grey/brown than crystals which have been artificially irradiated; these are usually almost black. It is possible to find very dark (almost black) natural Smoky quartz but usually it tends to be lighter in color. The only way to know for certain whether a point is naturally or artificially radiated is to ask the person where the point originated. Smoky crystal is a good grounding stone. It is also elevating to your mood because it grounds and picks up your negativity. If you use it for this purpose, be sure to cleanse your Smoky quartz frequently.

BARNACLES – Barnacles are smaller crystals that are attached to a larger crystal. Usually, these crystals emit a very Old Soul, ancient feeling. The larger crystal is the “Old Soul” and contains the wisdom and trust that attracts the smaller crystals (babies or new souls). I usually find that these Old Soul crystals with Barnacles are helpful to us in the way that a loving human grandmother/father or great grandmother/father would be (Imagine the Oracle from the Matrix movies). They help us to see things from a wider, deeper, wiser perspective. I think of the description of a crystal with Barnacles not so much as a description of the Barnacles themselves, but of the energy of the crystal that attracts or grows Barnacles.

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.

INNER CHILD – Inner Child (a type of Bridge) is a smaller crystal (or crystals) penetrating and located partially in and partially out of a larger crystal. Both names, Bridge and Inner Child, are used interchangeably. Inner Child crystals I see as much smaller and penetrating more “in” than “out” and they have a feeling to me of going “within.” 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. Inner Child crystals can help you heal and get in touch with your inner child (bridging the gap between your outer self and your inner self).

KEY – Keys are indentations left by another crystal. Key crystals help you unlock answers to questions you may have. They help you to access anything which you   previously were blocked from accessing before you found the key.

Ease of access is what Key crystal energy brings us. I like to put my finger in the Key as I work with the crystal. Meditate on the issue for which you need opening while holding the crystal in this way.

DEVIC TEMPLE – Crystals which have Fairy Frost, Mirror Fractures and Rainbows inside are called (by some) Devic Temples. They are considered Master Crystals. Other sources have described them as having special places for Light Beings to reside. I feel all crystals have this ability/inclination so I tend to shy away from this term because I feel like it is a little bit misleading (implying that only these crystals have this ability). I include it here because it is a popular search term.

FAIRY FROST – Fairy Frost crystals have fractures and inclusions of air within them. The trapped air is wispy, white and fairy-looking. Crystals with Fairy Frost are sometimes called Devic crystals. Devic Temple crystals have a combination of Mirror Fractures, Rainbows and Fairy Frost. Lots of crystals have Fairy Frost. Some are more fairy-like than others. Crystals with Fairy Frost are able to connect you with nature spirits and fairies (deva). They encourage us to connect with nature and to care for Mother Earth.

MIRROR FRACTURES – Mirror Fractures are shiny mirror-looking areas within the crystal, caused by damage (shocks (sudden temperature changes), traumas (hits, shaking, shearing Earth movement). Mirror Fractures serve as areas on which to reflect on our traumas and show that our traumas and challenges bring us added beauty and interest.

RAINBOWS – Rainbows are present inside a crystal due to fractures. It is helpful to have very bright light, and you may have to turn the crystal (side-to-side, upside down, etc.) in order to see them. Rainbow crystals are optimistic and happy. They remind us that we are loved and they remind us to look for the gifts our traumas bring us. Sometimes Rainbows appear on the surface between two closely connected (fused) crystals. Metaphorically, this can represent how a relationship with a closely-attached-other can bring us Rainbows. Often the fusing of the two crystals produces a surface on which Rainbows like to ride. The relationship with the closely-attached-other creates a Rainbow to be explored and honored while the two are connected.

01735 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is an interesting Arkansas quartz crystal point. Sort of between Elestiated and a conglomeration of fused clustered points. It has some Inclusions and Drusy. There are dark specks as well as golden colored inclusions, pretty sure the golden is Adularia.

ELESTIAL – Elestial crystals have natural terminations over the body and face of an etched and/or layered crystal. What does that mean? They really aren’t in the shape of a point. They are layered all over with self-healed looking surfaces. Sometimes points are what I call “elestiated.” To me that means it is a point that isn’t quite all point, and isn’t quite all Elestial, but sort of a combination of the two. Elestial crystals have a soft, loving energy. They usually feel angelic to me. I use them when I want to connect to an angelic energy all around me. Their energy is less focused, more amorphous (having no definite form, without shape).

INCLUDED – Included crystals occur when crystal is forming, and there may be other substances present in the solution. These substances might be air bubbles or other minerals. They become trapped (or Included) within the crystal point during its growth and are called Inclusions or Included crystals. Air and moisture inclusions fall into the category of Fairy Frost, a non-mineral inclusion. The properties of Included crystals will vary, depending on the mineral included within the crystal. The properties of the included mineral will be enhanced and amplified by being trapped within the structure of quartz.

ADULARIA – The Adularia included in Arkansas quartz is white and also golden colored. Fun fact: the optical effect of adularescence in moonstone is typically due to Adularia. Energetically, the  Adularia inclusions bring these things to the table: tranquility, inward journeying, a stone of the  Goddess, receiving inner guidance, assisting spiritually to relate to the Divine Feminine, finding one\’s highest path, emanating the inner beauty and power of the Divine Feminine, assisting in channeling healing energies, opening to inner journeys, releasing patterns which no longer serve, engendering peace and tranquility. (Simmons, Ahsian)

DRUSY – Very similar to Barnacles, Drusy (sometimes spelled Druzy) consist of very small points that are described as “a myriad of very closely set tiny crystals.” The Drusy clusters consist of tiny crystal points in their very formation, and are encrusted on either sandstone or quartz based matrices. The tiny crystals making up the Drusy look like sugar crystals. Your Drusy crystal may be on a point or a cluster, depending on availability. I think of Drusy crystals as assisting with ideas or thought forms ready to spring forth and grow.

01730 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a large Yin/Yang, Transmitter Arkansas quartz crystal point. Interesting layering, Etching and Sigils on the sides. Silver-thin Right Activation Window (Time Link to the Future).

YIN/YANG – Yin/Yang crystals are half feminine and half masculine. They present as half cloudy and half clear. The base of a Yin/Yang point may be completely milky or just very densely clouded with Fairy Frost (almost white) and the top part may be clear with a little wispy Fairy Frost. Knowing that Yin/Yang crystals have an equal measure of masculine to feminine energy, they are good for attaining and maintaining balance.

TRANSMITTER – Basically, a Transmitter is two Channeler faces side by side with a triangle in between (seven-three-seven). The main “face” or front is actually the “three” between the two seven-sided faces. The two seven-sided faces will be close to the same size. Sometimes one of the two faces is much larger than the other. I call these Transmitter crystals with a Channeler orientation. Transmitters work much like Channelers, only double! They help you access higher wisdom, either in the form of your Higher Self or Spirit Guides, or even Angels. Transmitters have a proud, almost mysterious, feel. I picture them as two sentinels standing not quite side-to-side and not quite back-to-back. I like them because their main face is between two diagonals. What do I mean by this? Imagine standing in front of a triangularly shaped building that has its entrance on the corner where the two sidewalks meet. It is unexpected and special.

RIGHT ACTIVATION WINDOW/TIME LINK TO FUTURE – A Right Activation Window is an extra facet that leans to the right. It looks like a parallelogram leaning right. They also may be sliver-thin or thick. It may remind you of a forward slash on a computer keyboard. Right leaning Windows are time links to the future. They also activate right brain functions (such as creativity, imagination and daydreaming). Just as with the Left-Activation Crystal, use the crystal of the hemisphere you tend to use less, and once you attain balance, use both together.

SIGILS – Sigils are any markings that represent an idea. For example, a dollar sign is a sigil that represents money and abundance. Crystals may have markings that resemble things such as snake skin, mountain ranges, water or even cities. Sigils are surface features; you view them the same way you view a Record Keeper. Because a Sacred Sigil is a marking that reminds us of an idea or invokes a memory or feeling, the meaning will depend on what the sigil represents to you.

ETCHED – Etched crystals have abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal that look like hieroglyphics or writing of some sort. I’ve seen them called Lightning Strike Quartz, as well. To me, Etched crystals (or the etching on crystals) is symbolic in that it looks like writing. (For example, in the case of Lightning Strike, it looks like a lightning bolt zigzagging across.) I feel that the best way to use these crystals depends on the particular shape the etching takes (refer to Sigil crystals).
