Crystals & Healing Stones

Many people are attracted to crystals - and in our store we notice children, particularly, are drawn to crystals. Why? We believe it is because of the energies that crystals hold, transmit, and send. The proof? If you have a computer, you know one of its components is a silicon dioxide chip - a quartz crystal chip. Computers can be programmed and are able to store and send information.

 

All crystals are transmitters and receivers of energy - and we (humans) seem to have many traits that are shared with crystals. For instance, we are primarily water - and water is a six sided crystal (see the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto "Hidden Messages in Water" 978-0-7432-8980-1) . Quartz crystals in their natural state have six sides, and six sides to their point. (See Judy Hall's "Crystal Bible" 978-) The natural point is the transmitting end of the crystal and the opposite end is the receiving end. When one draws the scientific diagram of a quartz crystal, the diagram will look like the human DNA.

 

If a crystal is a transmitter and receiver of energy and information, and we are of a similar six sided structure within so many of our cells, and if the quartz crystal is pure (unharmed) by environmental influences, and if we carry, hold, work with a crystal, will the body remember what it was like before the state of dis-ease?

 

Using a crystal is like the difference between standing in a field shouting your message, or speaking with a megaphone.

 

Much of our use of crystals today has its roots in medicine, and some uses are still prevalent today. For instance, gold (regarded as a crystal in the metaphysical world) is known to alleviate pain (the modern cure for some arthritis is "aurum" or gold). Silver is antiseptic (we use colloidal silver in our water) Lapis Lazuli was a prized crystal often found in the breastplate of a high priest.

Geodes

We have a nice supply of geodes available at Spirit Quest Books. There are small, break-open geodes, which children of all ages enjoy, As well as small to medium sized quality specimens of several different varieties  and several large amethyst pieces as well. 

 

The term geode is derived from the Greek word Geoides which means "earthlike". They are geological rock formations which occur in sedimentary and certain volcanic rocks.


Geodes are essentially rock cavities or vugs with internal crystal formations or

concentric banding. The exterior of the most common geodes is generally limestone or a related rock, while the interior contains quartz crystals and/or chalcedony deposits. Other geodes are completely filled with crystal, being solid all the way through. These types of geodes are called nodules.Geodes can form in any cavity, but the term is usually reserved for more or less rounded formations in igneous and sedimentary rocks, while the more general term "vug" is applied to cavities in fissures and veins. They can form in gas bubbles in igneous rocks, such as vesicles in basaltic lavas, or as in the American Midwest, rounded cavities in sedimentary formations. After rock around the cavity hardens, dissolved silicates and/or carbonates are deposited on the inside surface. Over time, this slow feed of mineral constituents from groundwater or hydrothermal solutions allows crystals to form inside the hollow chamber. Bedrock containing geodes eventually weathers and decomposes, leaving them present at the surface if they are composed of resistant material such as quartz.

 

Most geodes contain clear quartz crystals, while others have purple amethyst crystals. Still others can have agate, chalcedony,
or jasper banding or crystals such as calcite, dolomite, celestite, etc. There is no easy way of telling what the inside of a geode holds until it is cut open or broken apart. However, geodes from any one locality usually have a more restricted variety of
interior mineralization.
