Metaphyscial Properties of Crystals



Quartz has both piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties. The polarity of the crystal will change when exposed to heat cold or even the pressure and heat from your hand. Piezoelectricity is that quality by which electricity and sometimes light is produced by compression.

Pyroelectricity is a quality of an electrified state or polarity, which is produced by variation in temperature. To scientists, engineers and communication specialist’s quartz crystal is a key component in radio, radar, sonar, television, watches, and computers.

In fact, if it wasn't for quartz crystal communication, the way we tell time, and yes even the way we go to war would all be different.

Quartz Crystals have a tendency to stir up emotion in almost every person that may happen to come across one. Good, bad or indifferent these awe-inspiring treasures of the earth stir up deep emotions..

Melody writes in her book "LOVE IS IN THE EARTH"; "Quartz crystals are a gift from the earth. They have the ability to amplify or strengthen the things in you that are positive, and can help you put away things that cause you fear or anger. They can strengthen your ability to be a loving person, and can enhance your abilities to enjoy life and accomplish the things you want in life. They can amplify intention, reduce stress, help with centering, balancing or calming, strengthen healing abilities, and surround you with protection by amplifying white light. Any healthy quartz crystal point can strengthen these things and help produce personal growth by amplifying the subtle energies that flow inside you."

The Greeks and Romans used Crystals for medical and spiritual purposes. Shaman and Holy Men in several of the early Native American tribes also had various uses for crystals. Crystals were used in ceremony and ritual and often were stuck against each other to create light. Through out all of these times several of the same characteristics and properties have not changed but have been passed down from teacher to student, from friend to friend and healer to client.

According to Feng Shui; Crystals are a light cure and are able to radiate light into the home. They are able to break up chi in the home by illuminating it and dispersing the negative chi and replacing it with vibrant chi from the sun. The crystal is a medium to bring the sun into more areas of the home. The whole premise for crystals is to have them bring in the natural energy of the sun to transform and clear the space.

You can believe in the power of the crystal, believe in all the metaphysical properties of crystals, believe that the crystals will activate something inside of you or you just simply love the way that nature made the crystal; it is all up to you.. This is always a good topic.. Right up there with religion and politics..

I always end my ebay auctions with this saying..

Believe in your self and in your intuition. Crystals don't always reveal themselves to everyone individual the same.. They will speak to you in a way that usually only you will or can understand.. You might say crystals are bilingual because they speak many languages...... You will find that each crystal has its own ability and function. They all have the ability to work together and interchange with each other... Work with your crystal and you will learn what that particular crystal is able to do.. You may find that it's ability it unique to only you...

The old timers say that your crystal will find you and that all crystals have some sort of spiritual or metaphysical property...

So whether they speak to you or you just love the beauty of the crystal; they are a beautiful and wonderful gift of nature.

THERE IS SEVERAL MASTER TEACHING CRYSTALS. These master teaching crystals are the basic for learning about the different properties of crystals AND they are the ones that have been passed down thru out the years..

red and
The root "hem/o" means "blood". When ground or cut, this blackish gray metallic stone forms a reddish powder. Hematite forms a reflective shield around the wearer, letting negativity bounce off and return to the sender. Wearers should remember however, that their own negativity will be reflected to them if they are its source. It is therefore a "lesson stone", teaching the aware to release and ground their negativity. It is also said to aid in Mental attunement, memory enhancement. Hematite symbolizes balance. It is used to ground, stabilize, and focus attention on the physical plane. It is popular among many pagans for its ability to absorb negative energy. Hematite can absorb both positive and negative energy, though it is most often used to absorb negative energy. It is a very easy stone to clear and cleanse, and thus can be used multiple times in the absorption of energy. Hematite has connections to both Fire and Earth.

Imprints left on the surfaces or facets of a crystal, where they grew in close proximity to another crystal. I haven't found reference to these marks in any crystal book, but have developed my own idea as to what they signify. I believe that crystals with imprints show how something is affected by outside influences, thereby changing the shape or form of the original structure, but the original structure adapts to its environment to allow for growth and change, while still maintaining its basic inherent truth and beauty.

You use them in much the same way that you would a scrying mirror, focusing on a question and then allowing yourself to enter the crystal in search of the answer. Most will fit nicely in the palm of your hand with his student in contact with the thumb. they can help you to look and help you find those answers within yourself that need both voice and reinforcement. You will find yourself reaching for a crystal like this often!

It is used to unlock the "doors" to healing concepts and to those aspects of the self which tend to be illusive. Both are used to gain access to information from which you are normally excluded. Healing concepts and illusive aspects of ourselves can be unlocked. Useful for healer

Gateway Crystal(doorway to other deminsions)

laser wand
A long slender crystal with small faces comprising the termination. The crystal is wider at the base than at the tip (tapers inversely), and the angles of the sides of the crystal are curved, rather than straight, in many instances. These crystals have an intimate relationship with both inner and outer space.

(see Cathedral)
 Cathedrals are referred to as lightbrary cathedrals. Lightbraries are said to house the libraries of light.
These crystal have doorways in them, more often than not, in their castling definition. To travel into the crystal, just gaze into the doorway, you will see it open and your consciousness will be drawn into the crystal. Once there, you can travel into different chambers and receive information that you are ready for at that particular time.

The Manifestation crystal is recognized by a small crystal totally enclosed within a larger crystal, and they are very rare. The use of the manifestation crystal requires the inner knowledge that one is a clear and perfect channel, that a pure white light provides the guiding way, and that the purity of the Divine is within the inner self. They can also be used to facilitate artistic creativity, creative thinking, agricultural pursuits, and to increase or decrease any aspect of ones life.

The most clear crystals are thought of as "masculine crystals". Such clear crystals often emit the most intense energies making them very potent tools, especially for healing. The masculine crystal will provide positive assistance for those who are somewhat confused, or their overview of life is "clouded" by emotion. They are of particular benefit where action is required, and where physical exhaustion is a problem. Since we all possess masculine and feminine traits, it is best to have both in a crystal collection. However, if we have trouble balancing our two sides within, it might be helpful to own a crystal that allies with the side of ourselves that we have the most trouble coming to terms with.

Phantom Crystal
The Phantom crystal is comprised of a white or colored material (dark gray in the case of all the phantoms I have found at the mines I go to) and may be partial or complete. The phantoms within a crystal provide an indication of the experiences and the transformations the crystal has undergone in its evolution. The crystal represents the many phases and the many types of life which may be experienced during ones lifetime. It is one of the Earth stones to be used for redemption and cleansing of the earth. The energy of the phantom works to bring together the participants of humanity to save the planet.
These crystals [green phantoms] have been used to provide access to, and transfer of, information from the purity of the angelic realms. It assists in clairaudient endeavours, affording lucid, distinct, and articulate verbalization of the messages received...They combine the energy of quartz crystals with one of the most healing minerals...Chlorite is one of the most favourable healing stones.

These rainbow crystals bring rainbows into ones life and are a very special gift from the spirit-keeper of the crystal; they help one to deal with negativity and to maintain the constant awareness that love is within the life one experiences at every moment.   They can show us the magic and wonderment we have forgotten..   Just watch a child stare into a rainbow in a crystals.  Rainbow crystals show the blesings that the earth has bestowed on us and how we need to attune our energies to that of the earth, Mother Nature. 

Record Keeper
Record Keeper crystals appear to have small triangles or pryimads etched, drawn or can be a raised area..   It is said that the Record Keeper is one of the most sacred crystals because it holds the wisdom and knowledge of the universe that was put there by the Atlanteans and the Lemurians . When a person is properly attuned to a Record Keeper, this knowledge is readily made available. This knowledge is ancient knowledge and contains profound secrets and esoteric knowledge of the whole of the Higher consciousness. It takes an open mind and a pure heart to access this knowledge.

Rutile crystallizes in the form of prismatic crystals, or in this case, as needle-like crystals. It has been known to represent both the lovely hair of Venus and the "sweet" tipped arrows of love. It has been likened to the appearance of wheat straw and angel hair. The ethereal aspects of rutile bring strength with love, ease in transition, growth in all avenues of ones development, and calm, reason and order. Rutile is used for healing and balancing the aura via repelling negative energy. It affects the physical, etheric and astral bodies.

The sceptor crystal brings the spirituality of the higher planes into the healing ceremonies and focuses the energy deep within the "heart" of the matter. It is an excellent configuration for transmission of directional energy.

Self Healed or Rehealed
Crystals which have "sealed" over their broken end with small triangular shaped facets, which also smoothes the broken edge (happens millennia ago when the crystal breaks in it's formation). Because these crystals have healed themselves, we view them as particularly powerful healing stones. These crystals have learned the art of self healing and have the ability to pass on information and knowledge to those who are willing to learn....

Occurs in the formation of flat and relatively clear quartz layers. It has been used as a window to other dimensions, to access information from the astral for sending and receiving messages, for accessing Askashic Records plus to see within the inner self.   It has also been used to access deminsions, astral realms and guides for gazing...

They also have a powerful "OM" vibration and bring very creative energies. They bring hope and renew one's connection to the goodness in the universe and to the Divine

They are waiting the time you invite them to make conscious contact. These crystals can help you to make contact and establish communication. Just ask for help or guidance in anything and be receptive to "hearing" their answer in your heart, your visualizations, your feelings or your mind-- or by some strange happening or sign as you go through your daily life.

you can use them in grids, jewelry, medicine bags, gifts or for your energy or healing work. While holding them I get the feeling of a white light energy that fills me with energy as it surrounds me.. Almost like a angelic hug... Very warm and soothing.. Their energy is a great joy to be around. They would be excellent when used for dreamwork or journeying plus astral projection and/or working on becoming a shaman....


by Jan Haerer, Topaz Spirits.
crystals are literally those that look as if they are holding another in its "arms" The image that comes to mind is that of the proud parent, lifting his/her newborn to the starlit night skies and introducing the child to the Universe! The Universe offers a name for the child and the parent then holds the child close, confident of the love and the beauty of the tradition. It is a practice filled with continuity, joining past, present and future in a single act. This Spirit truly honors that tradition.

Starbrairies are recognised by the presence of these glyph-like markings, symbols and geometric patterns plus usually a doorway or key. By aligning fingers with the doorways or keys, you can unlock different layers, depending on orientation. Companion crystals are important - they either come with the crystal (purchased with or given with) or appear shortly thereafter. They don't have to be quartz, but work with the main crystal to unlock different layers or even gain access to the crystal itself. All Starbrairies work like that - the companions facilitate access, although it's possible to gain access just from the Starbrairy itself.
