Buffer Crystals – The Class VII Phosphates of Nature
Crystals that help us our lives and the demands placed on them
Most Buffer crystals are phosphates derived from phosphoric acid, which forms compounds that buffer, balance, and neutralize both acids and alkalis.
The Buffers are often referred to as Balancers because turquoise is the most commonly used Buffer and its color of the same name is the color ray of balance.
The Buffers are excellent at restoring the natural balance in situations that have become unstable. They can help you restore equilibrium in your life.
Equilibrium is a vital part of life. As humans we all need a center, a place of repose, a place of balance. We have passion; we need rest. We have growth; we need renewal. We have community; we need space. When we have too much of something, we start to need some of its opposite.
We are creatures of the middle. We want to be wise, but want to learn again. We want strength, but need help. We want understanding, but need joy. We seek vision, but want wonder. We want knowledge, but we want to be surprised sometimes.
Buffers are also weathering stones that help us get through hard times. They soften a blow and put things right. They are able to protect us from outside influences, temper shocks, and add some emotional padding to our efforts to deal with the bumps and bruises of life.
