Crystal Configurations and Structures

The shapes and structures of the members of the mineralogical kingdom vary with natural occurrence and with enhancement by humanity. Both unpolished/natural and polished crystalline forms of any given crystal configuration embrace and provide the same energies. Some shapes which are fabricated provide for properties identical to those shapes found within the earth; fabrication of other shapes will not produce identical properties. Other fabricated shapes provide unique properties of both direction and use to the contained energy. Below are some examples of Crystal Configurations.

The facets of a crystal can determine the direction in which the energy flows from a crystal. The angles and shape of the facets will give direction to the energy. This is also true for facetted stones. It should be noted than when a stone is facetted , the energy is somewhat smoother and the magnitude tends to increase. However, as long as one is working in the realm of light and love , the facetted form of any crystal will not be over-intense or over-powering; ones capacity tends to adapt with the amount of energy available.

Record Keeper Crystal

The Record Keeper Crystal is recognised by a raised (or several raised) perfect triangle(s)located on one or more of the crystal faces. The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrications of this form.

Generator Crystal

The Generator Crystal is recognised by a configuration of crystal faces all joining at the top of each crystal face, in the same location, in order to form the terminated apex. The fabricated configuration also exhibits identical properties.

Barnacle Crystal

The Barnacle Crystal is recognised as a crystal covered or partially covered with smaller crystals. The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Manifestation Crystal

The Manifestation Crystal is recognised as a crystal in which a smaller crystal is totally enclosed. The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Tabular Crystal

The Tabular Crystal is recognised as a flat crystal with notches on one or both of the flat sides. The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Key Crystal

The Key Crystal is recognised, in the quartz crystal, by a six sided (varying sided in other crystals) indented shape which is located on a face of, or on a side of, the crystal. The indent usually becomes narrower as it goes within the crystal, ending within the crystal (in an apex termination in the quartz crystal; in a variety of termination configurations in other crystals). The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Bridge Crystal

The Bridge Crystal is recognised by a small crystal partially in and partially out of a larger crystal. The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Rainbow Crystal

The Rainbow Crystal is recognised by fractures, producing rainbows within the crystal. The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Phantom Crystal

The Phantom Crystal is recognised by a "phantom" crystal within the crystal. The phantom, an image of the structure of another crystalline mineral, is comprised of a white of coloured mineral and may be partial or complete. The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Dendritic Crystal

The Dendritic Crystal is recognised by a branching figure or marking resembling a tree, fern, or moss-like form. The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Self-Healed Crystal

The Self-Healed Crystal is recognised by small crystalline structures at the location where the crystal was removed from its matrix or home. Another type of self-healed crystal is one which has been broken (exhibiting the break in the horizontal plane or close to the horizontal strata), with the break being healed and the crystal structure being complete again.  The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Sheet or Lens Crystal

The Sheet or Lens Crystal occurs in the formation of flat layers. The fabricated configuration also exhibits identical properties.

Twin Crystal

The Twin Crystal is recognised as a growing together of two or more individual crystals such that certain portions of each crystal are in parallel alignment and other portions of each crystal are in reverse positions with respect to each other . The associated attributes will not be exhibited by fabrication of this form.

Transformation Crystal

The Transformation Crystal can be found in any and all configurations. It is usually not recognised until the beginning of the transformation, i.e., changes in shape, quality and/or colour. Fabrication of this form is not possible.
