This Arkansas quartz crystal point is an interesting conglomeration of many different possibilities, none of which are perfect examples of each type, meaning it is KIND OF each of these things. Sometimes crystals just don’t quite fit into a category perfectly. It is basically two main points, though not quite Twin or Soulmate, but leaning towards Dolphin (though not quite either). It is Elestiated (Etched and or layered). It has a lot of smaller points at the base, making it an ET or Extra Terrestrial, and it has a small Bridge at the base which is also ET. It has Barnacles and also small Inner Child points (a type of Bridge). It is a complex crystal with a powerful but soft energy. I like it!
TWIN or SOULMATE – The crystal names Soulmate and Twin Soul can be used interchangeably. They are two crystals of a similar size grown side-by-side. Soulmates are sometimes called Tantric Twin. Soulmate or Twin Soul crystals are able to assist us in our search for a mate; just don’t expect to be able to put one by your chair at night and expect it to zap Prince or Princess Charming to your side by morning. This crystal can definitely assist you in attaining an appropriate energy for attracting a mate. They are also helpful in relationships, to promote loving contact and togetherness.
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.
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).
ET – Extraterrestrial (also called ET or Extra Termination) crystals have a single termination at the top and the base has several terminations. Extra Terrestrial crystals remind me of a rocket ship. Extraterrestrial crystals have a powerful energy. You may use them to assist you in accessing beings from other realities (extraterrestrials) and Angels.
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).
