This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Curved crystals; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy.
WHAT IS A CURVED CRYSTAL?
A Curved crystal has a curved shape or has sides that are curved.
This happens when the crystal is forming and it is a fairly rare occurrence.
Sometimes just the sides (edges) are curved; sometimes the whole crystal looks bent.
Other times they are self-healed into a curved or bent form.
WHAT KIND OF ENERGY DO THEY HAVE?
These crystals with curves have a gentle, yet powerful energy.
They help promote a flexible attitude.
Look at the shape of this crystal, it looks like it would “go with the flow” doesn’t it!?
That’s the “tag line” that I like to use: “Go With the Flow”.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO WORK WITH THEM?
Curved crystals are helpful in any situation in which you are having difficulty being flexible.
If you tend to be a rigid person but know that being less strict would be of benefit to you, you might carry one with you.
Keep one in your pocket and use it as a touchstone to remind yourself to be more flexible.
This crystal has quite a curve that I think is easy to see.
The blue lines help to show the bend.
A PERSONAL ADMISSION
Obviously, this isn’t always how it works out.
Sometimes the Universe has a better idea and my plan gets derailed (most often for the better).
Now, I know that being flexible is to my advantage!
However, it isn’t always easy to get my brain to relax and bend, (even when I know better)!
This is when working with Curved crystal benefits me the most.
EXAMPLES FROM THE ARCHIVES
This crystal is slightly curved starting at about the halfway mark.
I have drawn some straight lines to show the curve a little better.
The curve isn’t always obvious, sometimes you have to look at them and also feel the energy they present.
Another (not) obvious example
This crystal is a little less obvious as well. Again, I’ve drawn on it to show how it curves.
The green lines show the curve, the blue lines show how it would look without curving.
Notice how the base starts in from the left, straightens out and the termination bends to the right.
In total, the crystal has a mild “S” shape.
It’s a little more difficult to tell in the photo, but the termination takes a definite (pretty sharp) turn to the right.
THIS ONE IS A DOOSEY!
Look at the giant curve on this point/cluster!
Most of these photos are from archives (and have been adopted already). However, this one is available at the time of this writing.
Are you super rigid? This crystal curves like a banana! WOW!
Here’s a link if you would like to see more photos of it (and to see if it is still available for adoption).
It’s pretty amazing, isn’t it!? You should see the rest of the photos. There’s lots to unpack with this crystal.
In case this one is gone when you check, here’s a link to the Curved crystals that ARE currently available.
SOMETIMES CRYSTALS LOOK CURVED, BUT AREN'T
This is an example of a crystal that you might think is curved but is not.
The main crystal is straight (blue lines) and the Bridge at the base is also straight (green lines).
(If you aren’t familiar with what a Bridge crystal is, here’s a link to a blog post.)
Sometimes it helps to look at the main body of the crystal and trace the lines mentally, like I did on the photos.
OTHER APPLICATIONS FOR CURVED CRYSTALS
Curved crystals can also be used to cleanse the aura.
Very large ones can be used in a “scraping” fashion over the aura (you can actually feel the energy ripple after them).
WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT CURVED CRYSTALS
- Crystals may be curved naturally or may be broken and self-healed into a curved shape.
- Curves are a fairly rare occurrence.
- You might work with one in any instance where being flexible or “going with the flow” is desired.
- Larger crystals with curves may be used in a scraping manner to cleanse or “brush” your aura.
I hope you have enjoyed this discussion about Curved quartz crystal; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with them.
