Lineated Sides Quartz Crystal

Physical description: Lineated Sides are horizontal striations across the sides of a point. Lineation on some points can be used like a zipper. Unzipping enables you to access information within the crystal. 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 to the tip.

Nearly all crystals are lineated to some degree on the sides (this is a good indicator of side versus face on crystals which it is difficult to tell), but some are more pronounced than others.

Metaphysical description: Deeply Lineated Sides may be unzipped to access further knowledge within the crystal. I experience this as receiving a deeper knowing or understanding that seems to be released quietly after they are unzipped.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SIZE:

THE IMAGE SHOWN IS AN EXAMPLE OF A CRYSTAL WITH A LINEATED SIDES. 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 crystal with Lineated sides 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 crystal with a Lineated sides. 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!!

01751 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point has both a Window (Time Link) and a Left Activation Window (Time Link to the Past). It has Fairy Frost and Lineated Sides.

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.

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.

FAIRY FROST – Fairy Frost consists of fractures and inclusions of air within the crystal. 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.

01750 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point has not seen an acid bath and still has mineral and clay on it from the mine. It is a Dow with a Transmitter orientation (two of the 7 sided faces are much larger than the third 7-sided face). There are interesting Sigils on the faces and even sides, when you view them upside down, they look like cubes, stacked into a sort of city-scape pattern. The Sigils on the sides are more angular and make me think of pyramids. It has Lineated sides.

DOW – 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. So 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.

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.

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.

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.

01749 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point is missing part of the backside and the termination due to a large Crystal Imprint. It looks like (and feels energetically) like it is a Dow, but with the other portion of the termination missing, it is impossible to tell for certain. It does have enough faces present to call it a Transmitter (7-3-7). Lineated Sides.

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.

01748 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is an Empathic super water clear (Masculine) Arkansas quartz crystal point. It has a contact ding out of the termination. There is a large Left Activation Window (Time Link to the Past), Barnacles and Lineated Sides.

EMPATHIC – Broken, chipped and otherwise damaged crystals are called Empathic. Empathic crystals bring out compassionate feelings in us. The crystal picks up this empathy and amplifies it. Often the lesson of Empathic crystals is to remember to be compassionate and empathetic to our OWN chips, dings and perceived flaws and to remember we are still beautiful, whole, lovable and worthy.

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.

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.

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.

Just remember when you finish with your session to thank the crystal for its help, and zip back up until next time.

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.

01742 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a Feminine Arkansas quartz crystal point, dense with Fairy Frost. The backside is missing due to an Imprint and large Key. There are some sharp areas where there are crystal projections and it has Lineated Sides.

FEMININE – Feminine crystals are dense and milky. The concentration of density in a Feminine crystal varies from nearly opaque fairy frost to solid white, milky quartz. Sometimes a crystal with some clarity (which typically is described as masculine) will still emit a feminine energy. Feminine crystals help us (both men and women) to get in touch with our feminine nature. They have a soft, yet deep, mysterious energy. Yin in nature, Feminine crystals are intuitive, nurturing and receptive.

FAIRY FROST – Fairy Frost consists of fractures and inclusions of air within the crystal. 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.

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.

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.

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.

01741 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

Beautiful Yin/Yang Transmitter (7-3-7) Arkansas quartz crystal point. It has Lineated Sides, Keys and Bridges on the base.

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!

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

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.

01738 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a Dolphin Arkansas quartz crystal point. Huge Rainbows! Two dolphin babies, one more closely fused. The base is Self Healed, Sides and Lineated.

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.

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.

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, and they have sturdy, optimistic persistent energy. They are not quitters!

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.

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.

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.
