Gas Phantom Quartz Crystal

Physical description: There is a lot of controversy as to what creates these beautiful crystals. When I was first introduced to them, I was told they were called Titanium Gas Phantoms. The mine where they were found in Arkansas is now closed, and, as far as I know, they don’t plan to re-open it.

The faces of Gas Phantoms have a sort of gaseous-looking spray that looks like spreading fingers from bottom to top (base of triangle to tip). The really good examples have the spray marking as well as alternating clarity on every other face: one with a light, blue-grey haze (sometimes with a spray), the next clear, one with haze, one clear, etc. They usually have heavy etching on the faces, but not always. The spray looks like a bluish-grey to white haze or smoke just under the surface and the sides tend to have this smoky haze as well.

Metaphysical description: Gas Phantoms are excellent crystals for Lightworkers and those working with the emerging earth energies. I can’t say enough how much I love these crystals! While they feel very powerful, their energy is buttery smooth and they physically have a soft feel as well.

Here is more information on the Gas Phantoms, accessed by my friend Kyanne. I like what she has to say and how she describes this phenomena and energy. I have received the same information about their role with Lightworkers at this time in our evolution. They are awesome crystals. an energy not to be missed!

\”The … [gas] crystals Emanate and express the entire spectrum of light vibrations. They attune their keeper to this universal Spectrum frequency. This allows him/her to radiate and express the entire spectrum of light rays to everyone the keeper comes in contact with. These incredible [gas] Crystals are here as our Ancient Teachers. It is believed that these crystals were formed through thought projection by the Star beings that taught our Ancient Ancestors. They are here to prepare humans for the leap in Vibratory Evolution that is set to occur on our planet very soon. Many People are hearing the call to accelerate their learning and help others to reach their highest good. Many Healers are being attracted to this mineral, as it aligns them with the highest frequency of the universe and prepares them for the evolutionary leap, teaching them new/ancient healing techniques, so that they may in turn help others recall the state of perfection that was meant for humans to exist within. These crystals are going out to the serious lightworkers on our planet.

The Amazing \”Gas Phantoms\” are recognized by the smooth wisp inside the crystal and under the faces, unlike veils, they are not bits and pieces of white inclusions, these appear more like smooth smoke inside the crystal. The … Gas Phantoms are remarkable energy emitting inclusions that surrounds and fills the keepers auric energy field with brilliant White Light particles. These particles purify and strengthen the energy of the user, immediately activating, balancing and cleansing all the energy wheels (chakras) within the body. The Energy the keeper is able to transmit/transfer to another person or object is intensely amplified. This is perfect for healers and energy workers, and replenishes their own energy supply as they draw and send energy through their bodies.\”

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SIZE:

THE IMAGE SHOWN IS AN EXAMPLE OF A GAS PHANTOM 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 Gas Phantom 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 a Gas Phantom 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).

GAS PHANTOM QUARTZ CRYSTAL

GAS PHANTOM QUARTZ CRYSTAL There is a lot of controversy as to what creates beautiful Gas Phantom quartz crystal.

Arkansas quartz crystal point, Masculine, Mirror Fractures, Rainbows, Channeler, Gas Phantom, Keys, Inner Child.

02332_S ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point is water clear (Masculine) with Mirror Fractures and INCREDIBLE Rainbows. It is a Channeler Gas Phantom, though very light. It has the window phenomena (looks like the facet is mirrored with an inner facet, in traditional Phantom style – these usually appear on every other facet). It has several very good Keys and a small partial Inner Child point. This is a small but incredible crystal. The longer you look, the more you discover. Stunning!

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. 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. Typically, the term Masculine is referring to the physical characteristic of a crystal being very clear and without Fairy Frost, and doesn’t always refer to the energetic qualities. Just like with humans, many Masculine crystals do have masculine energy, but some have feminine energy. This is especially true when a clear (Masculine) crystal has an Isis Face. Just as with humans, it is important not to make assumptions based on the physical characteristic of a crystal. It is important to note I am talking about masculine, referring to energy, not masculine, referring to gender.

MIRROR FRACTURES – Mirror Fractures are shiny mirror-looking areas within the crystal, caused by damage (shocks (sudden temperature changes) or 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.  I think Rainbows are like secret hugs from the Crystal People. It is thrilling and warming. Connect to the gift of love these crystals with Rainbows bring.

CHANNELER – In order to determine if your crystal is a Channeler or Channeling crystal, you must count the edges of the faces. If it is a Channeler, the main face will have seven edges. Directly behind that seven-sided face, there will be a three-sided face (triangle). This configuration is described as a seven-three. Channelers or Channeling crystals help you access higher wisdom, either in the form of your Higher Self or Spirit Guides, or of Angels. To me, these crystals exude a crisp, regal energy. Channeling or Channeler crystals can bring you love and light from beings in the higher realms.

GAS PHANTOM – There is a lot of controversy as to what creates these beautiful Gas Phantom crystals. When I was first introduced to them, I was told they were called \”Titanium\” Gas Phantoms. The mine where they were found in Arkansas is now closed, and, as far as I know, they don’t plan to re-open it. The faces of Gas Phantoms have a sort of gaseous-looking spray that looks like spreading fingers from bottom to top (base of triangle to tip). The really good examples have the spray marking as well as alternating clarity on every other face: one with a light, blue-grey haze (sometimes with a spray), the next clear, one with haze, one clear, etc. They usually have heavy etching on the faces, but not always. The spray looks like a bluish-grey to white haze or smoke just under the surface and the sides tend to have this internal smoky haze as well. Gas Phantoms are excellent crystals for Lightworkers and those working with the emerging earth energies. I can’t say enough how much I love these crystals! While they feel very powerful, their energy is buttery smooth and they physically have a soft feel as well.

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.

INNER CHILD (see also BRIDGE) – 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 or Inner Child 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).

Arkansas quartz crystal point, Gas Phantom, Key, Mirror Fractures, Fairy Frost

02319_S ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point is a Gas Phantom. It doesn’t have all of the defining classic markings and characteristics of a typical Gas Phantom, so how would I know that? It has what I’ll call the “gas-windowing” phenomena. This is where the “gas” inside the crystal lines every other window (something difficult to describe). Anyway… it has some geometric surface features (view like you view Record Keepers), a large Key, Mirror Fractures and Fairy Frost.

GAS PHANTOM – There is a lot of controversy as to what creates these beautiful Gas Phantom crystals. When I was first introduced to them, I was told they were called \”Titanium\” Gas Phantoms.

Meditate on the issue for which you need opening while holding the crystal in this way.

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.

02340_S ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point is flattened but not quite enough to qualify as a Tabby. It is a very faint Gas Phantom with the hazy sides and just a tiny bit of “gas spray” up one face. It’s a Devic Temple with Fairy Frost, Mirror Fractures and Rainbows. There are Lineated Faces and Lineated Sides, a couple of Keys and a nice Five-Sided Isis Face. It has the soft-buttery feel typical of Gas Phantoms. I really like it.

GAS PHANTOM – There is a lot of controversy as to what creates these beautiful Gas Phantom crystals. When I was first introduced to them, I was told they were called \”Titanium\” Gas Phantoms. The mine where they were found in Arkansas is now closed, and, as far as I know, they don’t plan to re-open it.

While they feel very powerful, their energy is buttery smooth and they physically have a soft feel as well.

DEVIC TEMPLE – Crystals which have Fairy Frost, Mirror Fractures and Rainbows inside are called Devic Temples and are considered Master Crystals. Other sources have described them as \”having special places for Light Beings to reside\”. The description implies that only Devic Temple crystals have this ability, but in reality, all crystals do. Because all crystals have this ability/inclination, I like to put this reminder here. Devic Temples do have a special energy about them and usually have a lot of internal interest!

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. I think Rainbows are like secret hugs from the Crystal People. It is thrilling and warming. Connect to the gift of love these crystals with Rainbows bring.

LINEATED FACE – Lineated Face crystals are crystals with surface markings viewed in the same way you find Record Keepers. Lineated face crystals may have markings which start as a small triangle that is outlined continually, oftentimes the pattern runs off the face of the crystal, sometimes it doesn’t. To picture this, just imagine the lines in a Zen garden. The innermost triangle may or may not be centrally located. Lineated Face crystals may be accessed during meditation in the same way that you might use a labyrinth. To work with Lineated Face crystals, follow the lines in and down to a meditative state and when you are finished, work your way back out from the center.

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.

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.

ISIS FACE (FIVE-SIDED) – Recently, the word ‘Isis’ has triggered some computer algorithms to associate it with the unpopular group of the same name. I have changed the name of the Isis Face crystals because of these issues on checkout. What I am calling ‘Five-Sided Face Goddess Crystal’ is in fact, still an Isis Face crystal. An Isis Face is a five-sided face on a crystal point. To ‘qualify’ as an Isis face, the edges are usually symmetrical. While the Isis Face is sometimes the largest face, they are not always the largest face on the termination. Isis or Five-Sided Face crystals have a distinct powerful feminine energy (even if the point appears very clear and masculine). An Isis or Five-Sided Face point usually feels majestic and feminine (much as you would expect a goddess such as Isis to feel.) Isis Face crystals help you connect to all goddess energy, not just the Goddess Isis.

02303_S ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point is a Dow with a Self Healed base. It has Fairy Frost and Mirror fractures inside that make me think of the cosmos. The outer surfaces of this crystal are smooth and buttery to the touch, reminds me of the feel of a Gas Phantom, but there are no sprays or other characteristic markings. It feels so smooth in your hand that it almost feels polished, but there are Lineated Sides and a little bit of Etching so I know this isn’t the case. It is just a naturally smooth crystal and it feels luxurious. I love it!

DOW (also called TRANS-CHANNELER)- This is an example of a crystal with two names for the same configuration. Called both Dow (named after Janeann Dow) as well as Trans-Channeler (because these crystals are both Channelers and Transmitters in configuration), is more commonly referred to as Dow. Dow crystals have three seven-sided faces with a triangular face between each of them. The sides of the six faces will look like seven-three-seven-three-seven-three. A perfect Dow or Trans-Channeler will have symmetrically-sized faces and a centrally located point. Some will be uneven in symmetry, but the count will be correct. Dow or Trans-Channelers combine the qualities of the Transmitter and Channeler crystal. Dow crystals provide a connection with the self and Universal Truth. Dow crystals have a special energy about them that is sharp, clean and direct.

SELF HEALED – Self Healed crystals are crystals that have been broken from the matrix and started to re-seal their broken end with new growth. A Self Healed crystal looks like it has scales or triangular layers. Self-healing can be present on the bottom, sides or even tip of a point or cluster. Self Healed points also present as crystals that were broken in half but sort of ‘glued’ back together with new growth. Self-healed crystals are good for healing, as one might imagine. They also have optimistic, persistent energy. A crystal that has first healed its own wounding demonstrates how we are more able to help heal others when we first heal our own wounds. We can take this lesson to heart in our own healing practice.

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.

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.

ETCHED – Etched crystals have abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal that look like hieroglyphics or writing of some sort. To me, Etched crystals (or the etching on crystals) is symbolic in that it looks like writing or takes other shapes. (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 SIGILS).

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.

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.

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!!

As a reminder, we are going to revisit all the quartz crystal types, condensing the information to just a few items to make remembering easier. This week we’re going to revisit Channeler or Channeling quartz crystals. There is a long blog post on this, posted previously, here. I will try to extrapolate on that information …
