01957 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT
- Size or details
This Arkansas quartz crystal point has lots of deep Imprints and Keys which give the crystal a slightly Curved/twisted, almost helix-like look and feel. The base is densely Feminine (cloudy), there is clarity in the top, but not really enough demarcation to call it Yin/Yang. There looks like there is another mineral growing into the base (included), I think it is Adularia.
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 represent how we are affected by outside influences (usually other people). The original structure adapts to its environment as outside influences (associations with people) change its shape or form. This allows for growth and change, while still maintaining the crystal’s 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.
CURVED - Crystals with a curved shape or have sides that are curved. This happens when the crystal is forming and it is a rare occurrence. Sometimes just the sides are curved; sometimes the whole crystal looks bent. Sometimes they are self-healed into a curved or bent form. They have a gentle, yet powerful energy and help promote a flexible attitude. Think “go with the flow”.
ADULARIA - The Adularia included in (and on) Arkansas quartz is white and also golden colored. Fun fact: the optical effect of adularescence in moonstone is typically due to Adularia. Energetically, the Adularia inclusions bring these things to the table: *tranquility, inward journeying, a stone of the Goddess, receiving inner guidance, assisting spiritually to relate to the Divine Feminine, finding one's highest path, emanating the inner beauty and power of the Divine Feminine, assisting in channeling healing energies, opening to inner journeys, releasing patterns which no longer serve, engendering peace and tranquility. (*Simmons, Ahsian)
INCLUDED - Included crystals occur when crystal is forming, and there may be other substances present in the solution. These substances might be air bubbles or other minerals. They become trapped (or Included) within the crystal point during its growth and are called Inclusions or Included crystals. Air and moisture inclusions fall into the category of Fairy Frost, a non-mineral inclusion. The properties of Included crystals will vary, depending on the mineral included within the crystal. The properties of the included mineral will be enhanced and amplified by being trapped within the structure of quartz.
