Quartz Crystal Cluster 00155
- Size or details
This Arkansas quartz crystal cluster has some Golden Healer points and some layered Iron Oxide (iron oxide that isn’t coated in a layer of clear quartz). It has Growth Interference on the base and a compact Elestiated shape.
GOLDEN HEALER - Golden Healers are quartz crystals that are partially or totally covered with a transparent golden-yellow mineral (iron oxide). Lots of crystals have this iron oxide coating, but what makes Golden Healers special is that the iron oxide is trapped beneath a layer of clear quartz. The coating on a true Golden Healer will not come off with acid washing. Often the lightly coated Golden Healers will have rainbow iridescence on the outer layer (like rainbows you see on oil slicks). This is referred to as “natural rainbow aura”. These points emit an especially high energy. Golden Healer crystals are good for healing and have a soft, bright energy. The lightly coated Golden Healers have an enthusiastic and helpful liveliness in their aura. You don’t even have to pick them up to experience this shift. Golden Healers are one good example of very small points having as much or more potential energy as a very large point, ounce for ounce (much as the strength of an ant versus a human).
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.)
IRON OXIDE - golden-yellow mineral coating occurring on lots of crystals, usually taken off with an acid bath. Sometimes has rainbow iridescence on the outer layer (like rainbows you see on oil slicks). This is referred to as “Natural Rainbow Aura”. These crystals have an Earthy and grounding energy and remind us what crystals look like in their natural state (before an acid bath).
ELESTIAL - Elestial crystals have natural terminations over the body and face of an etched and/or layered crystal. What does that mean? They really aren’t in the shape of a point. They are layered all over with self-healed looking surfaces. Sometimes points are what I call ‘elestiated’. To me that means it is a point that isn’t quite all point, and isn’t quite all Elestial, but sort of a combination of the two. Elestial crystals have a soft, loving energy. They usually feel angelic to me. I use them when I want to connect to an angelic energy all around me. Their energy is less focused, more amorphous (having no definite form, without shape).
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.
