Quartz crystal properties and metaphysical formations
|All quartz crystals have 6 primary properties. They are able to structure, store, amplify, focus, transmit and transform energy, which includes matter, thought, emotion and information. Metaphysical quartz formations possess additional properties based on their geometry, the properties of numbers and other specific features.
The properties of quartz are not confined solely to the metaphysical. The electronics industry widely uses the ability of quartz to precisely structure and control frequencies. In healing and personal development, not dissimilar properties allow quartz crystals to act like tuning forks, gently but powerfully returning our bodies frequencies to a healthier, natural state. Quartz naturally balances and energizes both our gross and subtle bodies. Kirlian photography has shown that holding a small, double terminated quartz doubles the photographable portion of the human aura.
The intrinsic properties of all quartz crystals heals, cleanses, balances and strengthens the chakras, resulting in physical, mental and emotional well-being as well as initiating and strengthening our innate intuitive abilities.
|Super 7 (View in shop)
Also known as Sacred 7 or Melody's stone, this wonderful
crystal is a natural combination of clear quartz, smokey quartz, cacoxenite,
rutile, geothite, lepidocrocite and amethyst.
Super 7 possesses the properties of its constituent minerals
plus unique properties resulting from their synergy. It enhances healing,
personal development, intuition and all types of energy work. An extremely
potent and sought after crystal.
All our Super 7 were mined in the 1970's in Fundão, Espirito de Santos, Brazil. These are not later, secondary discoveries, but rare originals. This mine was flooded before 1980 and all production stopped.
"A combination of amethyst, cacoxenite, lepidrocite,
clear quartz, goethite, rutile and smokey quartz. Even though each piece may
not show each mineral all the pieces carry the energy of all seven minerals.
produces electromagnetic waves providing the self-luminous quality and assists
one in seeing auras and in maintaining the connection between the physical and
ethereal planes. Analogous to Sirius, the "brightest" star in the
heavens, it can assist one in all endeavours, promoting conscious awareness of
that which has remained hidden for eons.
The Super Seven never needs cleaning
or energizing... Has been used to promote telekinetic pursuits, telepathy,
clairaudience, awareness-channelling, universal creativity, to further healing
on all levels."
Recognized as a flat crystal, usually with etching or notches (major striations) on one side. If the width is not at least twice the depth (thickness), it isn't a tabby.
They are "high frequency" crystals, and those who can resonate with those frequencies psychically, find a plane of information and rich thought forms. This is the ultimate crystal for communication and information retrieval. This is probably due to its ability to "ground" diverse energies, forming a know-ledge from which to perceive the world and ourselves more clearly. extremely useful in developing psychic faculties.
Tangerine quartz has a natural orange colour permeating the entire crystal.
This colour resonates with, and therefore clears, balances and heals, the second (sacral) chakra. This chakra, if healthy, helps one to maintain a healthy yin-yang balance, resolve control issues and express our natural creativity. It also, in relation with the base chakra, governs sex drive. On a physical level, the lower abdomen, lower back and sexual organs come under the area of influence of this energy centre. Wearing or consciously working with this crystal will have a beneficial effect.
|Tibetan Quartz (View in shop)
Real Tibetan crystals are relatively rare. They are prized
for their uniquely mystical vibration. They enhance meditation and yoga
practices as well as initiating and strengthening all the subtle faculties.
"Tibetan quartz crystals have been used to promote contact
with the ancient cultures of the East, bringing knowledge concerning healing
and spirituality to the user. In addition, healing and meditation have both
been enhanced. Wearing the Tibetan crystal has induced total centring of the
self and has, when accessed, produced energy conducive to channelling. The
crystal tends to contain a very powerful "OM" vibration, prompting
the inventive powers. The body can attune to this resonance and radiate the
energy and verity of the higher-self.
They have also been used to facilitate fasting and abstinence from that which
one chooses. Kirlian photography has shown that, when cleansed, these crystals
emanate the total spectrum of colour, and can hence be applied to all energy
meridians for stimulation and cleansing - and can be used in the healing of all
Titanium molecules are bonded to the quartz by the natural electro-static charge of the crystal. Titanium is one of the strongest and most beautiful of all metals. The amazing colours are permanent and will neither rub off nor fade. Because the colours are produced by blending natural substances with a natural affinity, and not by a dye, the metaphysical properties are enhanced rather than destroyed. An excellent stone for creativity, both removing blockages to creativity and enhancing creative powers. An intensely visual stone, promoting clairvoyance and all forms of "seeing". They are used in meditation and yogic practice, where it appears to stimulate the upward movement of the kundalini. Carrying the mineral is said to assist in "reading" people." Stimulates the third-eye intensely.
Recognized by two larger and relatively symmetrical seven sided faces on either side of a small triangle.
In this stone the three, which is the channel between the duality of two and the manifestation of four, is situated between the intuition and wisdom properties of seven, indicating knowledge and inspiration in relation to controlling the senses, like in meditation. This is facilitated through association with more refined, "sattvika" (higher) energies from the archetypal, geometric perfection of Plato's "plane of ideas". This stone is able to provide a direct connection with the higher self.
"The total combination [of
7-3-7 sided faces] blends the higher
self with the individual physical and mental consciousness, assisting one in
the application of universal knowledge and wisdom in all aspects of ones life.”

|Trigonic Record Keeper
Instead of the raised triangles of the Record Keeper,
trigonics have downward facing triangular indentations. They possess the
properties of the Record Keeper, etched and key crystals, as well as having
their own distinctive mood, making them especially suited to meditation and the
development of intuition.
Recognised as two relatively parallel crystals growing
together and partially merged. They can for as clearly distinct crystals or can
be merged to such an extent that they could be mistaken for a single crystal.
They represent unity in diversity. The pinnacle of Vedic
theism describes this in Sanskrit as acintya-bhedābheda-tattva,which means the inconceivably (acintya)
being both simultaneously one and different. These crystals give at least a
visual clue to this spiritual abstraction.
Twins engender clear communication, harmony and balance in
individuals and groups.
"Twins facilitate the building of relationships on all
levels, acting to encourage encounters with the soul-mate(s) present during
Recognized by a diamond shaped window being formed where the sides and faces of the crystal meet.
As its name suggests, these crystals are primarily used for "seeing". Clairvoyance, "scrying" and many forms of divination can be enhanced by the use of these crystals. However their specific use is for introspection and personal development, at which they are unparalleled.
The diamond, as two triangles joined at their bases, has traditionally represents two aspects of ourselves. One ascending into spirit, the other descending into matter. Joined they form a four sided manifest form - this physical reality. Therefore these crystals are useful in analysing the relationship between these three factors, if used in a meditative state. The three factors being - our spiritual selves, our material conditioning and the world in which we find ourselves.
"Window crystals are powerful teachers. They are like open windows through which one can see beyond illusory identities and into the essence of the self."
