Different Crystals Formations and Identification
ET crystals are recognised as double terminated crystals that have one termination that is composed of many small terminated crystals that point away from the main body of the crystal, like the rockets on a space vehicle. These crystals may be used in the same way as DT crystals, but the multi-terminated end will diffuse the energies like a "sprayer": this means it can be useful where there is a need for energies to be spread out over a wider area, permitting a softer but more widely effective energy transfer. Because of the multiple terminations ETs are superior collectors of energy and have self-healed qualities too, making them a useful healing tool. Also as the name suggests, this crystal aids in communicating with off-planet energies and in astral travel - especially for those who enjoy being amongst the stars, or for those who have strong "star roots".
Elestial crystals (also known as celestial, skeletal or candle quartz) are recognised by having many natural terminations or crystalline structures all over the body and/or faces of a terminated or non-terminated crystal. These "additional" terminations may be pointed, round, square or strangely shaped. Often the crystals may be smoky, or appear singed. They may also resemble a candle that has had wax running down the outside (see also Candle formation). Primarily elestial quartz allow easier contact with the Angelic Realms, and provide a sense of belonging and rightness as well reinforcing our own connections with our Angelic selves. Elestials can provide the user with access to much information relevant to their personal life and path. They help support change and reassure us that everything will be all right, and that death (not necessarily simply of the physical body) is not the end, but merely the start of a new adventure. The layered and/or etched skeletal forms (more usually found in smoky quartz form) will cleanse deeply and get to the heart of things - this can be a hard process to work through, but is hugely rewarding in the clarity and fineness of vibration it brings to the energy field. All elestials are excellent meditation, channelling and personal development pieces and many will have their own crystal guardian or devic consciousness within, which the user can link with and utilise for greater help and guidance.
Cathedral Quartz, also commonly referred to as a Light Library or Cathedral Lightbrary (Lightbrury), is a crystal that holds a record of all that has occurred on Earth.Cathedral crystals are recognised by their "architectural” form, which bears a resemblance to multiple towers, like those of a castle or gothic cathedral. Cathedral Quartz may look to be composed of several or separate pieces, but they are all part of the main crystal. The Light Library can be accessed by meditating with one of these beauties. It aids attunement to the Universal Mind and provides access to the Akashic Records.
Significant parts of the Akashic Record are manifest in Cathedral Quartz. These rare entities contain the knowledge of the Universe that humans can understand. They are impersonal teaching crystals that can be accessed by careful study. If you seek wisdom, enlightenment, and a deep understanding of mankind’s place in the universe, both physical and spiritual, no better meditation crystal exists. These crystals are for use by dedicated seekers of Universal Truth. They are worth whatever their price, if used conscientiously.
Barnacle Crystals are covered or partially covered with smaller crystals. The larger crystal is the “old soul” and contains the wisdom and trust, which attracts the smaller crystals. This crystal can be used in meditation to provide insights to family and/or community problems. This type of crystal is excellent for those employed by service organizations. It’s energy helps to stimulate a group cohesiveness and a willingness to work together. This crystal is a wonderful companion when one is experiencing the loss of a loved one.
SELF HEALED CRYSTAL:
Self Healed crystals are identified as a partial or whole crystal that has been severed from its original matrix or cluster. Some time later, conditions once again become perfect for growth and a new crystal structure begins to grow over the area that was severed. In effect, the crystal heals its own wounds. As its name suggests, the Self Healed crystal is here to assist and aid in self healing-- be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. It is able to send supportive energies to those who have had severe emotional, physical or mental traumas. A wonderful piece to use when facing addictions.
A crystal cluster is defined as three or more crystals with a common base. The crystals may be small or large, or a combination of sizes. As well as the amplification properties quartz exhibit, this type of cluster will assist in breaking up negativity within an environment and has purification properties. It also is a protector and promotes harmony. The crystal cluster will radiate energy out to the surrounding environment and can also absorb unwanted energy.
LEMURIAN SEED CRYSTALS:
These crystals are coded, programmed with the Lemurian consciousness vibrations. Lemurian Seeds are predominately yin/female in energy – for this reason they become phenomenal receivers of information and guidance. They hold the blessings of the Divine Feminine because that is the energy that will help bring this world the healing and nurturing it needs. As the seeds are quartz they are fantastic amplifiers of energy and can help increase our sense of clarity and inner vision. The energy the seeds bring help us delve directly into the angelic realms so that we can create a ‘direct line’ with the angels, archangels and ascended masters.

Etched crystals are recognised by abrasions and/or intricate indentations, often forming patterns or textures. The properties of etched quartz means they are often used in meditation. Crystals with more complex patterning can be used for scrying. "This etched formation has been used to facilitate contact and the transfer of information from the ancient Egyptian civilizations and from Lemuria and Atlantis …the markings contain information of experiences in which they have participated. They also contain information with respect to the healing methodology which has been proved successful over eons of time and throughout the universe. The etched quartz crystal is usually a personal meditation crystal …will be beneficial to ones personal development and/or will provide information which will assist one in helping another. The Etched quartz is usually a personal meditation crystal.”
BRIDGE CRYSTALS: A bridge crystal is a crystal (one or more) that grows out of another, larger crystal. as its name suggests, it bridges gaps and brings things together. it can be used to join the inner and outer world. it is believed this crystal is quite beneficial when a person is driving to work with various aspects of spirituality or to heal childhood issues blocking growth.
