Needle Crystal
Extremely, long thin crystal appearing as a needle.
Needle crystals are quite useful.

Healers use them for very precise healing efforts, similar to the use of actual needles in acupuncture.

Needles are also outstanding divination crystals.  To use one in this manner, bury the crystal in a shallow bowl filled with white sand.  Over the course of several hours randomly rotate the bowl without thought.  When you need to choose a path, write out the options and place them around the bowl.  Carefully remove the sand until the crystal points to the right path.

Nirvana Quartz See Himalayan Ice
Numerological Crystal
Any crystal with clearly defined faces.
Any crystal that has clearly defined facet edges can be used as a numerological crystal.

To find out the number to which the crystal resonates, count each line of each face (each line only once).  The total number of edges will yield a two-digit number.

Add those two numbers together to get the number to which the crystal resonates.  The purist will again add the numbers together if the result is still a two-digit number.

Quartz, like other minerals often grows within a cavity inside a rock.  Often sold as a half sphere to show the design and beauty of the quartz crystals.
Good quartz nodules are outstanding meditation aids when the desire is to awaken ourselves to the goodness that lies within others.

If you are seeking relief from feelings that the world is against you, that it is filled with disappointment and sorrow, get a good Quartz Nodule and keep it near you. You will find yourself with a much more cheerful outlook within a few days.



Occlulded crystals are heavily included crystals
Usually occluded crystals are so included that their ability to focus the Universal Life Force is degraded.  They are however, outstanding purification crystals, particularly those that are mined in the high mountains of Tibet.
Opal Aura
A quartz crystal that has been enhanced with a coating of ionized platinum.

Opal Aura Quartz is quartz that is permanently treated by fusing platinum and/or silver on to its surface.

This coating is reported to bring additional spiritual energy to the quartz crystals. Healers have reported that it been useful in chakra healing when the imbalance is found in the crown chakra.

The coating is reported to enhance the crystal’s ability to connect with the angelic realm.

Several users have reported that Opal Aura helps with calming and acceptance in daily life.

While some have reported success in acessing the Akashic records this is unconfirmed.

Usually occluded crystals are so included that their ability to focus the Universal Life Force is degraded.  They are however, outstanding purification crystals, particularly those that are mined in the high mountains of Tibet.
Overcoat (Yin Power) Quartz
A clear quartz crystal with an overgrowth of milky, opaque quartz.
Poor name for an outstandingly useful crystal.  These are Yin power crystals that are used as personal talismans of women who need to exert authority and power over males.

They focus the Yin power of the Universal Life Force to bring a woman the strength to overcome male dominion and resistance to authority.


Parallel Growth
Parallel Growth crystals overlap as they grow. The crystals do not have all six sides due to the overlapping. They often appear as a series of crystal growing out of a crystal.
Parallel Growth crystals are used rather extensively in divination.  In fact their primary power is to bring us the ability to see different outcomes from our actions so we can choose the wisest path.

Some Parallel Growth crystals have many small crystals growing from a single large one.  These are primarily used for aiding our efforts to chose a major life future.

Use them to help in projects such as selecing a college, a major area of study, or a new city in which to live.

Careful study of the crystal with the options in mind will help focus your energy to allow a wise choice.  The growth crystals that have but one or two additional crystals growing from another are primarily used for chosing from one or two specific paths.

Parity Crystal
A  cluster of identical sized crystals
Normally of relatively small size,  Parity Crystal clusters are excellent Feng Shui crystal formations to place in a room that needs the even distribution of the Life Force energy.

Sometimes environments are out of balance and need centering and balance.  A Parity Crystal cluster will provide that balanced energy that is needed.

Pearl Aura See Opal Aura
A Penetrator is a quartz formation in which one crystal is pierced by another.   A Penetrator has either the termination of the Penetrating crystal completely contained within the larger crystal or extending out the other side of the crystal, looking like an arrow shot into the larger crystal.  If a crystal is extending out of a crystal it is either a Bridge or an Inner Child depending on the percentage extending outward. If a crystal does not completely penetrates another the formation is a cross.
Penetrators are very Yang crystals that manifest the violence nature of Life.  They are used to gain understanding of this inescapable part of life.

The Universe is what it is. We can only hope to gain understanding and wisdom.  It is not ours to change.  Worlds collide and new ones form.  Animals are born, grow, become weak and are killed by others for their own survival.  The collision of lives, goals, needs, and wants is a part of life.

These quartz crystals contain the understanding of this part of the natural universe.

Use these in mediations and healing exercises in which we need to understand and deal with the effects of this harsh part of the existence we have on this earth and in this universe.

Use the masculine power of the crystal to augment and amplify abilities to survive and prosper when physical adversity caused by the collision of needs and desires creates conflict.

This crystal will not prevent such conflict, as such conflict is an essential part of life, but it will help us understand and survive when it strikes us.

Penetrator Twins See Penetrator

Phantom Crystal
Do you know who you really are deep down? Do your know your inner self?  Do you know the person you are without your “hard protective shell” you have grown since you were a child?  People see just a shadow of that inner person through your shell.

Phantoms are meditation crystals and healing crystals used almost exclusively to get in touch with the inner self for purposes of self-knowledge.

They are most specifically used to help in understanding our inner needs that when satisfied will bring us the happiness we seek – the true happiness of complete fulfillment.

Picture Window A small tumbled quartz crystal that has one end polished smooth so the inside of the crystal can be seen.
Picture Window Quartz is a Divination crystal.  It has the single use of bringing us a glimpse of the future that might be.

The use of picture window quartz is actually quite difficult.  Crystal balls are more useful in that the images are easier to see and interpret.  Picture Windows are often small and require detailed study.

They work best for getting a glimpse of the potential in a situation which might have either positive or negative outcomes.  Usually the degree of light within the crystal once the question has been posed will supply an indication of the probable outcome.

Be aware, these are normally single use crystals.  Throw them back into a river once used.

Pink Lemurian Crystal
Lemurian Seed Crystals are said to have originated in a country known as Mu or Lemuria. This civilization, according to the legends, was a peaceful and highly developed spiritual civilization that existed over 12 million years ago in the area of the South Pacific. The area is now beneath the sea. The Lemurians are believed to have foreseen a cataclysmic event, and prepared the Seed Crystals to preserve their knowledge and traditions. During the last days of their civilization, the Lemurians decided to plant seed crystals programmed to transmit a message of oneness. Having seeded the crystals, most of the Lemurians left this planet for other star systems, perhaps as light beings or spirits. Others went into the inner earth where they continue to care for the earth and the seed crystals now surfacing.

Lemurian Seed Crystals are primarily meditation crystals. They are reported to contain extensive amounts of knowledge and understanding of the natural universe. They are considered to be the repositories of the knowledge of the ancient Lemurians. Mediation with these crystals allows for the ancient knowledge to pass into your consciousness. Each crystal is believed to contain different knowledge and understanding. Users of these crystals report deepening understanding of the natural universe, the basic nature of mankind, and the relationships with the spirit world that are so necessary in today’s environment.
