HELP! WHICH CRYSTAL TYPE SHOULD I CHOOSE!?

There are a LOT of different crystal configurations from which to choose. I'm not talking about different KINDS of crystals (such as amethyst, rose quartz, etc) I'm talking about only the different TYPES of clear quartz crystal here. Specifically, the different shapes in which it presents, each with slightly different metaphysical and healing energetic properties. Shapes, such as Barnacle, Bridge, Double Terminated, Extra-Terrestrial, Faden and Growth Interference, just to name a few. I've written a series of 4 books with drawings of each type, and in those, I covered forty-six different types. FORTY SIX! And those are just the most commonly found... there are actually a few more!

With that in mind, let’s talk again about how these metaphysical characteristics work. I've written about this before, but it bears repeating in case you missed the earlier blog posts.

GENN'S NEW BOOK IS FINISHED ! CRYSTAL MANDALAS: Anatomy & Physiology of Quartz Crystals (Volumes 1 - 4) COLORING BOOKS !

Well, you might have noticed I have been a little quiet lately. I've been madly working on finishing my latest series of books. They are currently at the printer and will arrive next week! I wanted to get them finished for a workshop I will be teaching in Fayetteville (Arkansas) for the Ozark Research Institute's 28th Annual Dowsing & Alternative Health Convention on April 15th through 18th. (I will be writing a blog post about this in case some of you can attend!) I will also be in Hot Springs in May at the Crystal and Crystal Skull Festival  (also talking about the new books and doing crystal readings). Anyway, the books are AVAILABLE NOW for pre-order. (You can click here to open a new tab to the order page.)

I've been working on this series for a couple of years now, and of course, all my friends, when they saw the great hullaballoo about the "adult coloring books", were on me to "HURRY HURRY HURRY, Genn!! Get your book out!"  Well, while I agreed that "striking while the iron was hot" seemed the smart thing to do, first, I didn't want the books to be confused as "just another coloring book in a vast sea of coloring books" and second, (and more important) I wanted them to be exactly right. Also, while the series ARE books which you color, they are FAR MORE than just "coloring books". They are learning books. Relaxing books. A way to make learning the nuances of quartz crystal easy, fun, and memorable. There is something magical about opening the right-brain, or creative side, that helps to bring the logical, or linear, left-brain side into more clear focus. This is what I hope to achieve with this series of books.

LEMURIAN SEED CRYSTALS - Crystals

This week we're going to discuss Lemurian Seed crystals. They sometimes are similar in shape to Laser Wands, and indeed, some Lemurian Seed crystals ARE Laser Wands. As a reminder of what Laser Wands here, follow this link to a post on that subject. Though Lemurian Seed crystals are sometimes in the shape of Laser wands, (a thicker base which tapers to a very small terminating end) they do differ in a few very different ways, both physically and energetically. Energetically, Laser Wands typically have a laser-type focus, whereas Lemurian Seed crystals have a feeling of connection, love, star travel and a vast opening. We'll get to the other differences a little later in the post.

Lemurian Seed crystals are reputed to have been "seeded" (aka planted) by the wisdom keepers in ancient Lemuria, before they left planet when their civilization on Earth was no longer viable and coming to an end. Lemurian Seed crystals are said to have been encoded with information to help guide us, by imparting the Lemurian's attitude of love, peace, enlightenment and conscious connection.

ARTEMIS or CANDLE Crystal - Speed Energy To Its Goal

Artemis or Candle CrystalThis week we're going to talk about Artemis or Candle crystals, which are long thin points with a 6 to 1 ratio (for example: 1 inch wide and 6 inches long, or 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long, ETC). This is a potentially confusing topic, so I hope this post helps clarify rather than muddy the water.

photo credit NEATSTUFF.NET/AVALONCandle crystals should not be confused with Candle Quartz. Candle Quartz is a crystal which looks a lot like a Cathedral or Lightbrary crystal (see picture, right). Imagine a candle in the shape of a crystal, but with the wick at the base (turn the crystal upside down in your mind, the base at the top with a wick and the point at the bottom). The wax would drip down the sides, in subsequent layers, toward the tip (which is upside down), so when you turned the crystal back upright, it would look like a dripping candle and is called Candle Quartz. (As an aside, there are some really helpful diagrams of a lot of these different crystal types from a mineralogical standpoint (rather than metaphysical) on The Quartz Page, I would highly recommend bookmarking and visiting the site!)

ENHYDRO CRYSTALS - Forbidden Knowledge, Excited Possibility, Magic!

This week we're going to revisit Enhydro crystals. I LOVE Enhydro crystals! There are many different thoughts about the properties of Enhydro quartz but they mostly boil down to knowledge, possibility and magic. We'll get to that later in the post. First, let's talk about what they are.

Enhydros are crystals with fluid inside them. The only way to know for CERTAIN if you have an Enhydro (if there is water or fluid present) is if there is something IN the fluid. This is most usually an air bubble, I suppose it could also be sediment of some kind, but most usually it is air.

WINDOW CRYSTALS - Time Links

This week we're going to discuss Windows in crystals. A Window crystal is a crystal with an extra diamond-shaped facet. To determine if you have a window, you count the faces. Here is a description of how to do this from my book (Understanding the Crystal People: A Handbook for Lightworkers):

Start counting faces by putting your finger on the main face and count until you make your way back around to the face under your finger. If you count more than six faces in the termination, then you have a Window (or more than one Window depending on the number of faces over six). If, when you count your faces, there are only six, then none of them is a Window.
