Forms Of Crystals
Rough Straight from mother earth.
Tumble Stone Mainly small stones.
Clusters Formations of single-terminated crystals that share a common base.
Generator Crystals- Generator crystals are single quartz crystals in which the six faces join sharply together to formj the terminatd apex (tip). The crystals energy flows from this point. They can be naturally occurring but can be also be brought cut and polished to that shape. (Every face and side will be polished and the base cut straight, so the crystal can stand). Sizes can range from small 2/5 inch (1 centimetre) upwards. Generator crystals are powerful crystal pieces that are ideal to use in mediation and chakra work. Small generators are excellent to use as pendulums.
Double-Terminated Crystals Naturally occurring shapes that have formed with a tip (apex) at either end. The energy in these crystals can flow either way, or both ways. Many crystals used in jewellery are fashioned into this shape and it remains one of the most popular stone cut.
RARE CRYSTAL SHAPE
The Phantom Crystals- These are rare and fascinating crystals. When you look into a crystal and you see the ghost of a crystal shape inside it, you will know that you are lucky enough to possess a phantom crystal. Sometimes this ghost will be very faint, sometimes it may be quite distinct with an almost solid colour. Phantom crystals show that the crystal has grown, stopped and continued to grow again on through many life times of learning. Phantom crystals are wonderful to use and carry. They should be treated with great respect as they are powerful tools. They can be used as a focus in mediation to access past lives and the higher self.
