Quartz, Master Crystals and Specialty Formations

quartz crystal gridSome schools of crystal healing and spiritual empowerment work extensively with specialized formations of crystal, using  the particular configuration of the crystal as a guide to the purpose they are used for. Many of the crystal healing styles that work most with these forms are those that call on the Atlantean, Extraterrestrial and Ascension or Ascended Master dimensional linages. Many of the other lines of crystal work also use some of these. All systems and belief structures  for crystal healing will work.

Given that you accept the possibility that they can work, my belief is that while these formations may work in the way that the  originators of this system teach these are generalizations and  simply do not apply across the board.  Crystals of a particular formation can also work in other ways.  Crystals that do not have these specific forms  can also do  the same  work .  Some crystals of a particular formation as described here will have a completely different  mission than those attributed to the formation.  When you either have faith in a technique and or crystal formation or  healing system  or are open to allow the technique to work then it can  work for you.

Katrina Raphaell seems to be the first and primary channel for information about these forms . Her three books "Crystal Enlightenment" "Crystal Healing" and "The Crystalline transmission" have extensive information about the use of these "Master Crystals".  Almost all information taught and believed   about these crystal formations  seems to come from her. These formations might be useful guides to possible ways of crystal work but they  are not the only way of working with  crystals. Many well known Crystal Healing teachers have now  integrated information about these forms into their teachings.
Specific information and techniques for working with some of these formations is mostly advanced or esoteric methods.  While I have and  do  work with some of  these "Master Crystals" in my personal experience they are  not the most important or effective way for me to  work with crystals  or for most people and purposes.  This statement  may apply to me only  and is my opinion.  Your experience may be different. If you are meant to work with one or more of these crystals they will find you.

bridge crystalThere are new formations and purposes being identified all the time so this will of necessity be incomplete. We Have received permission from Stuart Schmitt of Sweet Surrender Crystal Mine  60 Mary's Eagle Trail Mount Ida, AR 71957 (870) 867-2443  to use  his photographs on this page.

Most Master crystals will remain relatively inert regardless of a persons efforts to work with them unless the person is  ready and right for the information and energy  the crystal will connect with. I want to Emphasize that in order for you to work with some of these formations ,the particular crystal form must choose to work with you.    When you are ready for a certain kind of work you often won't  need a  special crystal formation to do do it.    The crystals themselves may also have a particular mission and purpose  in their  work for you than they will have for another person.
I have also worked with the energies of  many of these quartz formations through the quartz shakti in the Crystal Deva Empowerments.

Identification of specialty formations is sometimes made more difficult because sellers may either from enthusiasm, uncertainty or from a desire to improve profit label some crystals incorrectly.
For example, window crystals must have a clear window centered in the main face.  Faden Crystals have a clear line inside not just diffuse feathering Record keepers have a convex raised  triangle on a facet.  I have often seen these names applied incorrectly. On the Other hand, many sellers do not sort for specialty features. A master formation crystal may be found  in the general pile or even the junk box.

Here are  a few  of the Master Crystals and specialty formations: ( Most  information is from Katrina Raphaell's books, Melody and Joy Gardner's books were also consulted ).  We have added a connection to an energy channel so that if you are sensitive to subtle energies you may be able to receive a sample of the  energy of each Master formation crystal shown here by intending to do so.  Ms. Raphaell  is the original massager of this information and  students who feel called to work in this way should acquire and read her books.

channeling crystalChanneling Crystal: A crystal with a large seven sided face
with a triangular face on the back directly opposite is called a channeling crystal.
the Channeling crystal can be used for obtaining information
from deep within yourself or from sources that are outside of your normal realm.
The Channeling crystal should only be used by very well prepared spiritual students
because as with other channeling you need to be able to discern the quality of entities and
information you are opening to receive from.

Transmitter: A perfect triangle in the center of the crystal flanked by two symmetrical seven sided faces on either side of the triangle used to connect the conscious mind to universal wisdom either to access information or to attain cosmic truth. and to transmit thoughts or questions into the universe.

windowWindow Crystal: A crystal with a clear diamond between the body and tip of a point is called window. It is believed this crystal will open a window  to help you get intuitive answers to questions and bypass the ego or intellect.
They are used for clarity and direction. you must be able to look into the clear heart of the
crystal through the window. These can be used for gazing and scrying .
( gazing is reading for of past or future omens, scrying also includes present time viewing )

elestialElestial Crystal: Skeletal quartz a crystal with natural terminations over the body and faces, of an etched and or layered crystal. They are very unusual appearing crystals often resembling the human brain. Many bear a smoky color.
They can help align the physical with the angelic realms this crystal can repair damaged cells in the brain and rewire the damaged areas to bring back new life. They are powerful, powerful crystals that have been brought into this reality, at this time, to assist in the
l mass cleansing, healing, and reawakening that is currently occurring on this reality plane. Elestials are the great comforters to those who are in the dying process and they assist to release the fear of leaving the physical body in order to identify with the immortality of the soul. There are dozens of other uses and qualities for the elestial.

lasar wandLaser Wand Crystal: A long slender crystal that tapers inward
from base to termination is called a laser wand. It is used to clear negativity, create protective barriers, focus healing energy to self or others, and assist in performing psychic surgery and to remove attitudes that may be causing disease. It can be used as a psychic laser, a cutting , dissolving, healing, clearing   and sealing tool It is also used in retrieving sacred information and in focused programs.
There have been some fear structures raised around this formation With some people positing that these could damage the aura if used carelessly.  My experience has been that when you trust the Crystal  and allow it to work without pushing forcing energy  they work positively and rest when done.

dowDow or Trans-Channeling Crystal: A crystal with three, primary, seven sided faces and three secondary triangular faces between them. It is believed this crystal is a [Dow] combination crystal that incorporates the properties of both a Dow Crystal Channeler and a Transmitter crystal in one crystal. It helps facilitate intuitive awareness and connection with “All That Is”. It is considered one of the "Twelve Master Crystals" and is a powerful teaching and healing crystal.

tantric twinTwin Crystal or Tantric Twin: A crystal with two points on a common base is called a twin crystal. You can tell a twin crystal from two crystals that are simply attached to each other, by the fact that both parts of a twin crystal are exactly parallel to each other, and have no boundary between them. the Twin crystal can generate positive energy toward improving a relationship. They can help you gain insight into the underlying problems in a relationship, and help work through them. This works for any kind of relationship,. A twin with a rainbow can be very effectively used to project healing energy into a relationship or to keep a good relationship strong.

isisIsis Crystal : A crystal with a particular kind of five sided face is called an Isis crystal. the Isis face has a straight base line which connects with two short lines angled outward which meet with two longer lines that rise to a perfect point.
The Isis crystal is used to put you in touch with and strongly amplify your feminine
energy, and can help you get in touch with the 'female' or unselfish side of yourself, no
matter whether you are a man or a woman. Isis crystals put you in touch with Your Goddess power. and the archetypal lover , mother healer Goddess within you the Isis crystal will help men become more in tune with the feminine side and with aspects of women they may find troubling. the Isis crystal will help women regain some of the power and energy that society has repressed.

lightbraryCathedral Library (or Lightbrary): these may look as if they are made of separate parts but each is a single crystal almost identical to the others and bonded completely into a Mother crystal they are sometimes mistaken for elestials but they are very different they usually have only a single termination and have a stepped appearance from a kind of internal double spiral formation they are both connectors to the Universal Sacred and storehouses of information They are group teaching crystals sharing attunement with what is called God and Love and the quest for greater truth and knowledge. They are in a way impersonal crystals working with groups and sharing information and light with all who seek to receive from them . (This  group workshop has access to one of these remarkable crystals ).

genoratorGenerator :A crystal with six evenly spaced sides and six approximately equal  faces, six triangles come to a single point at the tip is called a generator point.  They have the ability to store, amplify and transmit or generate energy. They can be used to facilitate a connection or create unity between the members of a group and transmit thoughts in a manner similar to a radio transmitter.

Devic Temple Crystals: are usually generators with markings, inclusions and veils that have images that call to mind other worlds and beings and often have doorways or steps.  Through them inner plane Devas can offer insight.  A contact point between dimensions.

record keeperRecord Keeper : A crystal that has one or more triangle shapes that are either engraved into or are raised on one or more of the crystal faces is called a Record Keeper or Recorder.  These triangles are difficult to see and may appear and disappear.  You have to look for them carefully by examining the faces.  Record Keeper holds or connects with the wisdom and knowledge of the universe. When a it is appropriate and for the right person this knowledge is readily made available.  This knowledge is often ancient knowledge and contains profound secrets and esoteric knowledge of the whole of the Higher consciousness.  It supposedly takes an open mind and a pure heart to access this knowledge.( I've had a messages from them so I think that it is more that it will give a message if or when it has one for you. Open mind yes, pure heart well... ) The raised form tends to have ancient or global universal information and the indented form   may connect more with personal information and spiritual history or prophecy.

tabbyTabby Crystal: two of its opposite sides are twice as wide, or more, than its other sides, a flattened shape giving the appearance of a tablet is a Tabby or tabular crystal. They may look sort of squashed . They often also have a pattern of slightly raised lines on the flattened sides of the crystals. You can think of them as a file cabinet filled with information . they are considered an excellent communications crystal.  They can act as a bridge between our adult self and our child like spirit. They are also said to help bring joy and laughter into our lives.

fadenFaden Crystal: A crystal that has a milky feathery line or threads that usually run through the center of the crystal. Faden lines  are often found in tabby shaped crystals, It is thought that the line is a seed point of growth they  help to activate or start new spiritual growth within one's self and  promotes emotional and mental stability.


rainbowRainbow Crystal: A crystal with a rainbow(s) inside caused by the prismatic effect of a crack or inclusion is called a Rainbow.  Rainbow crystals are used during meditation to help bring both mundane joy and spiritual bliss into our lives.
The rainbow is an all purpose healing crystal and can facilitate contact with the Fairy and
other plane entities of light used for happy and prophetic dreams, helps manifest wishes, and general lightening up. These are of value to everyone and I consider rainbow crystals essential.

time linkTime Line or time link Crystals: A crystal with a rectangular face leaning to the left. they can be used to access information from the past. A crystal with a rectangular face leaning to the right. can be used to access information from the future. they help dissolve the illusion of linear time

Activation crystals: have a window face leaning either to the left or right

and these are used to enhance function of the brain those that lean left effect the left brain or rational mind and the right leaning ones effect the creative brain.

self heal and shardSelf Healed and/or Shard Crystals: A partial piece of crystal, a cracked crystal or a complete crystal that has severed from its original matrix or cluster group, then continues to grow new crystal structure over the area where the crystal separated from its original host or is cracked or broken, in effect healing its own wounds. Self Healed Crystal will aid in any type of healing and self healing physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.  Self Healed crystals are exceptionally supportive for those with strong emotional issues or traumas, or are struggling with some type of addiction that includes the inability to let go of certain kinds of behavior, a person, or belief, as well as tobacco, food, alcohol and drugs.  These are also wonderful crystals for healing practitioners and are often found in the junk boxes of not metaphysically savvy dealers.

includedIncluded Crystal: A crystal with another mineral or substance included within. some may just have specks or globs of included material.
The more common inclusions are black, green, brown and white. these have the properties of both quartz and the included material.

phantomPhantom Crystals: are those with a "phantom" or ghostlike image of another crystal or partial crystal within the main crystal.  Some of these are included crystals others indicate where growth has stopped and restarted. The attributes will often depend on the included material or the nature of the phantom and they are often used for meditation on past events past lives and connecting with universal wisdom.  A Buddhist tradition has these representing the "Eagle Peak" or "Mount Sumeru" the center or core of the Earth or universe and the "treasure tower" the site of a gathering of all Buddhas (Christs, Avatars etc.) before the beginning of time. thus in theory all wisdom can be accessed through a phantom crystal. for Reiki practitioners this form corresponds directly with the Master symbol.

manifestationManifestation Crystal: a crystal with a small crystal totally enclosed within it is a called a Manifestation crystal. There are some almost completely different purposes or attributes given for these in different sources and some also call the out facing bridge crystal a manifestation crystal Some teach that this crystal is used to assist in the actual manifestation of desired goals be they spiritual, mental, emotional, or physical and material .the usual care and cautions required for all manifestation work are emphasized Another set of attributes of the manifestation crystal is that it is said to help people who have had a traumatic, physically or emotionally, childhood.  They are helpful for people who are blocking painful memories.  They help bring the cause of the pain to the surface and allow the person to successfully deal with it, while shielding that person from the pain those memories can cause. These crystals can work well for people who are working through current family problems.

bridgeBridge Crystal, Inner Child Crystal or Penetrator: A crystal that has a smaller crystal(s) that either penetrates and/or is lodged partially into the crystal
with the other part protruding from the crystal this crystal is quite beneficial when a person is striving to work with various aspects of spirituality. These crystals are used for working on advanced metaphysical areas, and are attempting to share this knowledge with others seeking a spiritual path. This is the ultimate spiritual teacher's crystal. or to heal childhood
issues blocking growth. The inner child name is often given to those where the tip of the
embedded crystal is inside the main crystal and these are also said to help people who have had a traumatic, physically or emotionally, childhood. Those with the crystal embedded with the point out are also sometimes also called manifestation crystals and used for bringing plans and dreams into reality.

etExtra- Termination :A crystal with a single  termination at one end and multiple terminations at the other end.
 These help to unify diverse groups or individuals  working together. Unifying families and promoting unity etc. 
These crystals are also used to bring in energy and increase physical vitality. Helping one to appreciate and understand diversity and complex spiritual information .
 Also   (possibly mistakenly ) called Extra-Terrestrial Crystal (ET):  It is believed Extra-Terrestrial Crystal will help channel space beings, celestial beings, and guardian angels (and maybe information from  deva or  fairies).  While some do report this kind of experience with these  the first definition seems to apply to more of this form.

keyKey Crystal – The key crystal is recognized by a three or six sided indentation somewhere on the crystal .it can be used to unlock the doors to healing, help answer difficult questions, solve problems, and access information to that which is hidden.

growth interferanceGrowth Interference crystal: A crystal that has various cuts on
the body that appears to have been done with a trim saw. Thin, flat calcite crystals have interfered with the growth pattern of the quartz crystal. It is believed this crystal will help remove self limitations and energy blockages so that you can be completely in command of your life.

baenacleBarnacle Crystal - A crystal covered or partially covered with
smaller crystals. It is believed the Barnacle crystal will help
stimulate family or group cooperation. Also a companion when
having lost a loved one.

Male and Female  crystals ( not one of the crystal formations but people tend to look for this info here)
Much crystal is milky white at the base and gradually gets clearer toward the tip.  Some crystal is as clear as water or cut glass. Other crystals are milky white and opaque.  The clear crystals are often classified as Yang or Male crystals and said to represent action, power, force, strength and creativity.Milky white crystals are often classed as Yin Or Female crystal and said to represent receptivity, love, communication, negotiation and sensitivity. A crystal with both clear and milky is believed to represent a balance of the active and receptive energies. Most crystal seems to have a combination of clear and milky crystal. The Male / Female quality of the crystal is not really of particular importance for most forms of crystal work.
Some people feel that the clearest crystals help with mental clarity
and rational thought and that the milky crystals promote intuition and sensitivity but I have not found that the difference if any is significant for most work.
