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. 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.
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.
