01728 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Self Healed Arkansas quartz crystal point has Barnacles and Bridges and lots of layering and interest.

BARNACLES – Barnacles are smaller crystals that are attached to a larger crystal. Usually, these crystals emit a very Old Soul, ancient feeling. The larger crystal is the “Old Soul” and contains the wisdom and trust that attracts the smaller crystals (babies or new souls). I usually find that these Old Soul crystals with Barnacles are helpful to us in the way that a loving human grandmother/father or great grandmother/father would be (Imagine the Oracle from the Matrix movies). They help us to see things from a wider, deeper, wiser perspective. I think of the description of a crystal with Barnacles not so much as a description of the Barnacles themselves, but of the energy of the crystal that attracts or grows Barnacles.

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. It 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.

SELF HEALED – Self Healed crystals are crystals that have been broken from the matrix and started to re-seal their broken end with new growth. A Self Healed crystal looks like it has scales or triangular layers. Self healing can be present on the bottom, sides or even tip of a point or cluster. Self Healed points also present as crystals that were broken in half but sort of “glued” back together with new growth. Self-healed crystals are good for healing, and they have sturdy, optimistic persistent energy. They are not quitters!

01727 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point has a huge Imprint up one side, a Deep Bridge and deep Inner Child. There is at least one Barnacle with a Rainbow riding between the two crystals. When Rainbows appear on the surface between two closely connected (fused) crystals, metaphorically, this can represent how a relationship with a closely-attached-other can bring us Rainbows. Often the fusing of the two crystals produces a surface on which Rainbows like to ride. The relationship with the closely-attached-other creates a Rainbow to be explored and honored while the two are connected.

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 show how something is affected by outside influences. The original structure adapts to its environment as outside influences change its shape or form. This allows for growth and change, while still maintaining its basic inherent truth and beauty. An Imprint is a type of Key, so the characteristics of Key crystals applies as well.

INNER CHILD – Inner Child (a type of Bridge) is a smaller crystal (or crystals) penetrating and located partially in and partially out of a larger crystal. Both names, Bridge and Inner Child, are used interchangeably. Inner Child crystals I see as much smaller and penetrating more “in” than “out” and they have a feeling to me of going “within.” Bridge Crystals help to bridge between worlds. It 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. Inner Child crystals can help you heal and get in touch with your inner child (bridging the gap between your outer self and your inner self).

I think of the description of a crystal with Barnacles not so much as a description of the Barnacles themselves, but of the energy of the crystal that attracts or grows Barnacles.

RAINBOWS – Rainbows are present inside a crystal due to fractures. It is helpful to have very bright light, and you may have to turn the crystal (side-to-side, upside down, etc.) in order to see them. Rainbow crystals are optimistic and happy. They remind us that we are loved and they remind us to look for the gifts our traumas bring us.

01726 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This ET (Extra Terrestrial, Extra Termination) Arkansas quartz crystal point is “as is” straight from the crystal mine. There is a deep Double Terminated Bridge and a huge Key. There is some pock-mark looking Etching and a few Barnacles.

ET – Extraterrestrial (also called ET or Extra Termination) crystals have a single termination at the top and the base has several terminations. Extra Terrestrial crystals remind me of a rocket ship. Extraterrestrial crystals have a powerful energy. You may use them to assist you in accessing beings from other realities (extraterrestrials) and Angels.

ETCHED – Etched crystals have abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal that look like hieroglyphics or writing of some sort. I’ve seen them called Lightning Strike Quartz, as well. To me, Etched crystals (or the etching on crystals) is symbolic in that it looks like writing. (For example, in the case of Lightning Strike, it looks like a lightning bolt zigzagging across.) I feel that the best way to use these crystals depends on the particular shape the etching takes (refer to Sigil crystals).

DOUBLE TERMINATED – Double Terminated crystals have a termination on both ends. These crystals grow from a “seed” molecule of silicon dioxide in clay and grow outward in both directions. They are not formed on a matrix. The energy in these crystals flows in both directions as well. Even though they have two terminations, oftentimes there is usually one end that feels like the “top” and one that feels like the “bottom.” Double Terminated points promote psychic ability and dream recall (because they send as well as receive) and are also used for balance. They are useful in any application in which you want the energy to flow in both directions. I like using them in healing layouts or grids because the energy flows in both directions.

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. It 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.

BARNACLES – Barnacles are smaller crystals that are attached to a larger crystal. Usually, these crystals emit a very Old Soul, ancient feeling. The larger crystal is the “Old Soul” and contains the wisdom and trust that attracts the smaller crystals (babies or new souls). I usually find that these Old Soul crystals with Barnacles are helpful to us in the way that a loving human grandmother/father or great grandmother/father would be (Imagine the Oracle from the Matrix movies). They help us to see things from a wider, deeper, wiser perspective. I think of the description of a crystal with Barnacles not so much as a description of the Barnacles themselves, but of the energy of the crystal that attracts or grows Barnacles.

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.

01732 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is an Empathic (but Self Healed) Laser wand crystal point. It is missing most of the termination but that area is completely self Healed. There is a lot of Etching up the sides and Sigils. The sides are Curved and there are at least 2 Keys. This crystal has an old soul, wise energy. It does have a few Barnacles and some Bridges.

LASER WAND – Laser Wand crystals are thicker at the base than the tip. The termination is usually quite small in comparison to the rest of the point. While the body of Laser Wand may not be curved, the edges of the sides are often curved and heavily Lineated. Lemurian Seed Crystals are often in the shape of a Laser Wand. Laser Wands are good in both inner and outer work. I find them to have a very precise, narrow focus. Imagine writing with a mechanical pencil versus a crayon.

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.

ETCHED – Etched crystals have abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal that look like hieroglyphics or writing of some sort. I’ve seen them called Lightning Strike Quartz, as well. To me, Etched crystals (or the etching on crystals) is symbolic in that it looks like writing. (For example, in the case of Lightning Strike, it looks like a lightning bolt zigzagging across.) I feel that the best way to use these crystals depends on the particular shape the etching takes (refer to Sigil crystals).

SIGILS – Sigils are any markings that represent an idea. For example, a dollar sign is a sigil that represents money and abundance. Crystals may have markings that resemble things such as snake skin, mountain ranges, water or even cities. Sigils are surface features; you view them the same way you view a Record Keeper. Because a Sacred Sigil is a marking that reminds us of an idea or invokes a memory or feeling, the meaning will depend on what the sigil represents to you.

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.

It 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.

CURVED – Curved crystals have 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. Curved crystals have a gentle, yet powerful energy. Curved crystals help promote a flexible attitude.

01716 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This crystal point has a tiny clump of Manifestation points inside. I have marked them with a sticker. There are Barnacles and Bridges, Etching, Sigils and a slight Curve.

MANIFESTATION – Manifestation points are small points that have formed within a larger point; these are quite rare. They have a special energy to them that is difficult to describe. It is almost like a pregnancy, or a feeling of expectation inside. There is fullness in the energy a Manifestation point exudes. The Manifestation point refers to both the point within the main crystal as well as the main crystal itself. I can usually feel a Manifestation point by its special energy before I actually see it within the main crystal. Manifestation points are powerful manifestors, which should come as no surprise. They may assist in the manifesting of many things, but for the best results, it is wise to focus on a single desire.

BARNACLES – Barnacles are smaller crystals that are attached to a larger crystal. Usually, these crystals emit a very Old Soul, ancient feeling. The larger crystal is the “Old Soul” and contains the wisdom and trust that attracts the smaller crystals (babies or new souls). I usually find that these Old Soul crystals with Barnacles are helpful to us in the way that a loving human grandmother/father or great grandmother/father would be (Imagine the Oracle from the Matrix movies). They help us to see things from a wider, deeper, wiser perspective. I think of the description of a crystal with Barnacles not so much as a description of the Barnacles themselves, but of the energy of the crystal that attracts or grows Barnacles.

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. It 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.

01714 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point is covered in sparkling, jewel-like Barnacles. There are also Record Keepers and the base is Self Healed. Nicely Lineated Sides.

BARNACLES – Barnacles are smaller crystals that are attached to a larger crystal. Usually, these crystals emit a very Old Soul, ancient feeling. The larger crystal is the “Old Soul” and contains the wisdom and trust that attracts the smaller crystals (babies or new souls). I usually find that these Old Soul crystals with Barnacles are helpful to us in the way that a loving human grandmother/father or great grandmother/father would be (Imagine the Oracle from the Matrix movies). They help us to see things from a wider, deeper, wiser perspective. I think of the description of a crystal with Barnacles not so much as a description of the Barnacles themselves, but of the energy of the crystal that attracts or grows Barnacles.

RECORD KEEPER – Record Keepers (also called Recorders) are crystals that have triangular markings on the faces. They seem to be three-dimensional, but they usually can’t be felt with your finger. You have to hold a crystal at just the right angle in order to see the Record Keeper. Usually they are very sharply edged, equilateral triangles; however, I have seen them with rounded bottoms as well (more arrowhead shaped), which I call non-traditional. There may only be one present on a face, or you may find layers and layers of them. Record Keepers will appear and disappear (I call that “popping”). It is said that a Record Keeper crystal will find its way to the person who needs the information it contains. Record Keepers contain special wisdom. They represent storage devices and the information can be accessed via a portal. I love Record Keepers, they have a special energy.

SELF HEALED – Self Healed crystals are crystals that have been broken from the matrix and started to re-seal their broken end with new growth. A Self Healed crystal looks like it has scales or triangular layers. Self healing can be present on the bottom, sides or even tip of a point or cluster. Self Healed points also present as crystals that were broken in half but sort of “glued” back together with new growth. Self-healed crystals are good for healing, and they have sturdy, optimistic persistent energy. They are not quitters!

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.

01713 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a partial Laser Wand quartz crystal point. The backside is missing but completely Self Healed and covered in Drusy. There is a lot of Fairy Frost and Inclusions inside that give this crystal a lot of internal interest. Lots to see!

LASER WAND – Laser Wand crystals are thicker at the base than the tip. The termination is usually quite small in comparison to the rest of the point. While the body of Laser Wand may not be curved, the edges of the sides are often curved and heavily Lineated. Lemurian Seed Crystals are often in the shape of a Laser Wand. Laser Wands are good in both inner and outer work. I find them to have a very precise, narrow focus. Imagine writing with a mechanical pencil versus a crayon.

SELF HEALED – Self Healed crystals are crystals that have been broken from the matrix and started to re-seal their broken end with new growth. A Self Healed crystal looks like it has scales or triangular layers. Self healing can be present on the bottom, sides or even tip of a point or cluster. Self Healed points also present as crystals that were broken in half but sort of “glued” back together with new growth. Self-healed crystals are good for healing, and they have sturdy, optimistic persistent energy. They are not quitters!

DRUSY – Very similar to Barnacles, Drusy (sometimes spelled Druzy) consist of very small points that are described as “a myriad of very closely set tiny crystals.” The Drusy clusters consist of tiny crystal points in their very formation, and are encrusted on either sandstone or quartz based matrices. The tiny crystals making up the Drusy look like sugar crystals. Your Drusy crystal may be on a point or a cluster, depending on availability. I think of Drusy crystals as assisting with ideas or thought forms ready to spring forth and grow.

FAIRY FROST – Fairy Frost consists of 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.

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.

01697 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a super water clear (masculine) grouping of Arkansas quartz crystal points. It is Empathic with some contact dings. There is a very small Manifestation point, marked with a sticker. The points are Bridges into one another, there are Barnacles and deeply penetrating Inner Child points.

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.

BARNACLES – Barnacles are smaller crystals that are attached to a larger crystal. Usually, these crystals emit a very Old Soul, ancient feeling. The larger crystal is the “Old Soul” and contains the wisdom and trust that attracts the smaller crystals (babies or new souls). I usually find that these Old Soul crystals with Barnacles are helpful to us in the way that a loving human grandmother/father or great grandmother/father would be (Imagine the Oracle from the Matrix movies). They help us to see things from a wider, deeper, wiser perspective. I think of the description of a crystal with Barnacles not so much as a description of the Barnacles themselves, but of the energy of the crystal that attracts or grows Barnacles.

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. It 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.

MANIFESTATION – Manifestation points are small points that have formed within a larger point; these are quite rare. They have a special energy to them that is difficult to describe. It is almost like a pregnancy, or a feeling of expectation inside. There is fullness in the energy a Manifestation point exudes. The Manifestation point refers to both the point within the main crystal as well as the main crystal itself. I can usually feel a Manifestation point by its special energy before I actually see it within the main crystal. Manifestation points are powerful manifestors, which should come as no surprise. They may assist in the manifesting of many things, but for the best results, it is wise to focus on a single desire.

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. Remember not to have pre-conceived notions. Just because a point is masculine by description doesn’t automatically mean it can only present masculine energy (the same is also true for Feminine crystals). 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.

INNER CHILD – Inner Child (a type of Bridge) is a smaller crystal (or crystals) penetrating and located partially in and partially out of a larger crystal. Both names, Bridge and Inner Child, are used interchangeably. Inner Child crystals I see as much smaller and penetrating more “in” than “out” and they have a feeling to me of going “within.” Bridge Crystals help to bridge between worlds. It 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. Inner Child crystals can help you heal and get in touch with your inner child (bridging the gap between your outer self and your inner self).

01696 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This little Arkansas quartz crystal point is encrusted with Barnacles and has several deeply penetrating Bridges. There is a Right Activation Window (Time Link to the Future). It has a sparky energy. Bridges are good for connection with perspective and crystals with Barnacles have a wise, old soul energy. I like this crystal.

BARNACLES – Barnacles are smaller crystals that are attached to a larger crystal. Usually, these crystals emit a very Old Soul, ancient feeling. The larger crystal is the “Old Soul” and contains the wisdom and trust that attracts the smaller crystals (babies or new souls). I usually find that these Old Soul crystals with Barnacles are helpful to us in the way that a loving human grandmother/father or great grandmother/father would be (Imagine the Oracle from the Matrix movies). They help us to see things from a wider, deeper, wiser perspective.

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.

RIGHT ACTIVATION WINDOW/TIME LINK TO FUTURE – A Right Activation Window is an extra facet that leans to the right. It looks like a parallelogram leaning right. They also may be sliver-thin or thick. It may remind you of a forward slash on a computer keyboard. Right leaning Windows are time links to the future. They also activate right brain functions (such as creativity, imagination and daydreaming). Just as with the Left-Activation Crystal, use the crystal of the hemisphere you tend to use less, and once you attain balance, use both together.

01691 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Yin/Yang (half cloudy, half clear) Arkansas quartz crystal point is Empathic with contact dings and chips from the mining process (fresh “wounds”) but also has Self Healed areas which occurred while still in the earth. It has had a rough life. There is a large Bridge, a small Inner Child and some Barnacles. There are a lot of sharp, rough edges on this crystal. When someone is drawn to this type of crystal, it usually indicates that there may be areas that the person has suffered recent traumas and the crystal reminds you to be mindful of your sharp areas and handle yourself with love and special care.

YIN/YANG – Yin/Yang crystals are half feminine and half masculine. They present as half cloudy and half clear. The base of a Yin/Yang point may be completely milky or just very densely clouded with Fairy Frost (almost white) and the top part may be clear with a little wispy Fairy Frost. Knowing that Yin/Yang crystals have an equal measure of masculine to feminine energy, they are good for attaining and maintaining balance.

SELF HEALED – Self Healed crystals are crystals that have been broken from the matrix and started to re-seal their broken end with new growth. A Self Healed crystal looks like it has scales or triangular layers. Self healing can be present on the bottom, sides or even tip of a point or cluster. Self Healed points also present as crystals that were broken in half but sort of “glued” back together with new growth. Self-healed crystals are good for healing, and they have sturdy, optimistic persistent energy. They are not quitters!
