0059 LARGE ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT
- Size or details
This is a stunning Arkansas quartz crystal point/cluster. The main point is super water clear (Masculine), and has a huge Window (Time Link). The sides are heavily Lineated. There are many crystals Bridged into the main one and a base that has lots of deep Growth Interference. The Bridged crystals create a little cave in the clustered base. There is a mineral, I’m pretty sure it is Orthoclase on the bottom, but I’m not 100% positive on that. There are Mirror Fractures and some Fairy Frost in the Bridges and a contact ding on the main point, making it Empathic. It is a gorgeous cluster with bright, intense energy out of the main point and a softening/grounding energy in the base.
CLUSTER - Clusters are points growing together on a matrix. Some Clusters grow on a sandstone matrix, others on all quartz, and still others may grow from a ‘seed’ of crystal (like a mass of double terminated points). Clusters are good for helping with group dynamics. Families, co-workers, anywhere a group of people might need help in getting along. They are also good for raising the vibrations in an environment and bringing light and energy into that space.
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.
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.
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.
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. This 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, bring you up out of the muck, giving you a birds-eye view of a situation. While providing connection, they also help provide boundaries. Also called Inner Child.
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 presents with a look like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. Other times in deep square imprints. Because there used to be a mineral present that isn’t there anymore, they look and feel 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. I see Imprints as more associated with situations regarding people (crystal on crystal) but because growth interference crystals is caused by non-crystal influences (other minerals), I see Growth Interference as referring more to non-human influences (such as environmental circumstances or health issues, etc.)
ORTHOCLASE - Orthoclase is a mineral rarely found attached to quartz crystal. It is a form of feldspar and has a chalky white appearance. Paraphrasing Melody from Love is in the Earth: "Orthoclase helps overcome tragedy and can provide assistance in the alignment of the chakras, the subtle bodies and the meridians of the physical body. It emits an energy of liveliness and pleasantness, stimulating tact, finesse, poise and refinement. Orthoclase is a ‘stone of cooperative effort’, and provides for contact with the ancient builders of Egypt and can be used to initiate insight into the ancient methods and associated wisdom. The plate like form of Orthoclase can be used to stimulate the higher psychic abilities and to encourage one’s faith in the personal intuitive capabilities. It has been used in the alignment of the spinal structure and the teeth." Crystals paired with this mineral will enhance the qualities listed above.
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.
FAIRY FROST - Fairy Frost is found inside a crystal (not like “frost on a pumpkin”). Fairy Frost is 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.
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.
