    Re: Wolfsong's Quartz formations & Properties.

    Seer Quartz: Referred to by several names including Window Quartz, Seer Stones, Ema Eggs and Dragonegg these are naturally tumbled pieces of clear Quartz which have had a side polished to create a window which allows one to see inside the stone. A human tumbled variety is also available on the market.

    These stones make ideal scrying and/or meditation tools. They are ideal for past life regression work as well as for working on all planes of existence and space-time work.

    Chakra: Third Eye




    Cavity (Pocket) Quartz: This is a type of Quartz which contains any form of natural cavity within it.

    These configurations are great for increasing ones memory capacity and memory stimulation. It promotes a deep perception of issues one encounters and helps one examine these in a rational way. It allows you to discard insignificant details thereby providing a clear picture which brings power and wisdom. It is a stone of logic and helps one in life by enhancing ones inventive and problem solving skills. It is also a useful healing tool.

    A piece of Quartz containing a cavity large enough to hold water or and elixir can be used for several other purposes. The first would be as a seer stone or scrying tool. It can also be used to enhance the quality of elixirs and also to purify water.

    Some use Tibetan Quartz bowls or any other form of Quartz bowl for this purpose. Other Quartzes with cavities carved into them work well as well. They work very well when a larger cavity is required for retaining liquids. Natural cavities tend to be better for the metaphysical uses mentioned in the first paragraph.

    Chakra: Crown and Root

    Shovel Quartz: Shovel Quartz is recognized by one face being quite a bit larger than the others which in most cases has a scanner tip. The main face also has an exaggerated slant towards the back face giving the overall appearance of a shovel.

    Shovel Quartz assists one in finding solutions and building towards them. It helps one understand existence on other levels of reality and helps counteract self-limiting concepts of space-time. It helps in healing unwanted life experiences and also helps in holding on to and using wanted life experiences. It allows us to remember all life lessons which helps us in not repeating past mistakes. Finally it helps in assisting one to gather and retain knowledge throughout ones life.

    Chakra: Throat




    Spiral Quartz: This is a type of Quartz Crystal which shows a spiraling pattern up the Crystal. Although many of these can be found which have been carved by humans they do occur within nature. The most common natural example would be a crystal which has a large angular key running somewhere along the shaft which gives the appearance of a spiral. Some can also be found which show shifts in the shaft’s edges to one side which again give the appearance of spiraling. The one pictured below shows both the key spiral as well as the edge spiraling effect.

    These are truly one of the most important Crystal formations in nature. Quite simply, they connect us to one of the most important shapes in nature which can be found in the largest of formations, as seen in galaxies, and also in the smallest; strands of DNA. They teach us that looking within is as important as looking outside of ourselves. It can be used to bring the universal spiral of energy into the physical body and also helps us maintain a connection to the physical while in meditation. It inspires the energies of love so that all Chakras are activated spontaneously in a flowing movement creating a balance of harmonious male and female energies.

    Chakra: All
    Prasem Quartz: This is very similar to the Prasem which comes from Russia but the green hue (Hedenbergite inclusions) varies just enough to make it a unique addition to te Quartz world. It comes from the island of Serifos in Greece and it is not new to the mineral world. It was discovered many years ago and the ancient Greeks actually make reference to it.

    This form of Prasem holds much the same properties as the Russian variety (see page 6 post #57 in this thread). In addition this crystal is the ultimate stone for gaining access to nature spirits of all varieties.




    Chakra: Base, Sacral




    Earth Quartz: This form of Quartz is coated by Siderite and although found in several locations worldwide the most popular variety comes from Russia.

    As its name states this is a crystal of the Earth and as such can be used in any work relating to her. They make for great companions on spirit journeys and meditations relating to Earth work. Earth Quartz helps us keep a "green mentality" even in large cities. Kept in the office or carried at work they again keep us conscious of our home and to do everything within our power to keep her healthy. If taken on a nature walk these crystals help us connect to the Earth and helps to open her wonders to us.

    Chakra: Base




    Medusa Quartz: A new find out of Ceara, Brazil, this Quartz comes from one pocket and is very limited in quantity for now. Its inclusions are made up of Paraiba Tourmaline. It is only sold as cut and polished specimens. Its name comes not from the mythological figure but rather from its resemblence to the Medusa Jellyfish. Looked at from the side the two look almost identical.

    Medusa Quartz is used to help create community. It allows us to see that the sum is greater than the individual parts and that in many cases goals can be more readily accomplished through a group effort. It assists in meditation to help one travel to upper realms and also helps with analytical thought processes. Great for those working in any environment which requires mathematical skills and helps in not making errors in your work no matter how redundant it may be. This is a crystal for DNA work and as such makes for a great healing tool on that level.

    The specimen below is actually very small being only about 14mm long. Larger specimens are hard to come by and very expensive.

    Chakra: All
    Comet Quartz: Comet Quartz is a type of Quartz from Mexico which has dark blue Tourmaline inclusions in it which look like comets and their tails.

    Note: This is a form of Quartz which I have been asked to post about in this thread for some time so people are aware of its existence. This is due to the nature of this crystal and the power it contains. It is not to be taken lightly and should only be used by experienced people who are aware that there are consequences to all their actions.


    Sand Quartz: This is a form of Quartz which is totally saturated with sand inclusions. It has a beauty unlike any other in the Quartz world. Although found world-wide most comes from Brazil. The specimen pictured below has several unique features. First the right crystal has a Fearie Castle formation at its top and second the left crystal has a pocket in the back of it which could be used to hold and purify a very small amount of water or other liquid.

    Sand Quartz is a crystal of metamorphosis and change. People who require creativity within their work or within their lives will find this Quartz useful. It teaches us to re-examine our boundries on a continual basis and encourages growth through change. This is a type of Quartz which requires no cleansing and can also be used to cleanse other minerals. It helps us in breaking down walls and misconceptions in ourselves as well as within others.

    In healing it creates a conduit to release disorder and disease by absorbing these energies and recycling them.

    Chakra: Base and Sacral




    Ribbed Quartz: Although considered a relatively new find I have been informed that these have been used for some time by humans. The confusion arrises with the fact that these are extremely rare formations and seldom find their way into human hands. These crystals are identified by a rib-like structure running along one or more edges. The piece pictured below comes from Nambia which is quickly becoming known for its unusual specimens. It was sent to me by someone knowing its uniqueness and is only the second specimen I have ever seen.

    Ribbed Quartz is a crystal of stability. It adds structure to ones life and assists in all aspects of it. It is also a stone of speech and as such makes for a very useful tool for anyone who gives presentations frequently. It assists in delivering the message in a clear, precise and professional way. It also assists in helping one express themselves in all aspects of their lives. For people who find their lives scattered or find themselves always unorganised this formation helps in creating a stable and organised environ.

    For healing this is a formation for bones. It helps in maintaining them and helps heal and strengthen them after breaks or fractures. It is one of the few crystals which also helps specifically with problems relating to bone marrow.

    Chakra: All

    Penetrator Quartz: this is a type of Quartz which has one Crystal growing into another. It should not be confused with a Manifestation Crystal which has a Quartz Crystal completely imbedded within another Crystal.

    Penetrator Quartz helps one in getting to the root of and solving problems. It helps one identify the problem. When faced with what seems to be an insurmountable task this Quartz will help with identifying a way to overcome it. It helps eliminate blocks in one's life.

    Chakra: Throat, Brow and Crown




    Bridal Veil Quartz: This is a type of White or Snow Quartz which is coated with Dolomite Crystals giving it a veiled effect.

    Bridal Veil Quartz is a stone of long lasting love. It helps remind us where this love came from in difficult times and reminds us that true love is worth fighting for. It helps keep one faithful during trying times or during long absences. Whe placed within an environ it brings a loving peace to it and help eliminate negative energies. This stone can be used to cleanse others but still needs to be cleansed itself on ocassion.

    Chakra: Sloar Plexus, Heart and |Throat




    Smokey Amethst: This type of Quartz contains both Smokey as well as Amethyst areas. The one pictured below is also a Scepter.

    Contains the energies of both (see Smokey Quartz as well as Amethyst). This stone is best used to control and round uncontroled emotions of love and any deep undesireable emotions. It does this by initiating calming deep inner thoughts.

    Chakra: Root and Sacral




    Alpine Quartz: This type of Quartz is hard to explain. I use the term Alpine in referrance to the optical purity of this Quartz. This is the most translucent, lustrous and optically clear Quartz one can find. The vast magority of this Quartz is found in the Alps (France and Switzerland). Much of this Quartz, as the one pictured below, has a slight smokey tinge.

    This is the ultimate Quartz for traveling to higher plains. It is great for journeying and scrying and for opening windows into other worlds. This is a stone of purity and especially the purity and elegance found within nature. It reminds us that sometimes to see this purity we need to look beyond our human limits and open our minds to other perspectives. This stone can be used to cleanse other minerals and never needs cleansing itself. It brings into focus those problems which at times feel insurmountable to overcome and helps us in finding solutions to them.

    Chakra: Crown

    Titanium Quartz: This is the natural version of Flame Aura Quartz which is Quartz which has Titanium molecules bonded to it. One little known fact about Titanium is that it is also a major component of Rutile so any Quartz with Rutile inclusions will also carry some aspects of the following properties. The Titanium in the specimen pictured below can be seen asa white phantom in the left tip.

    This is a crystal of creativity and assists in all workings which involve visibility including scrying. They have been used in Yogic applications as well as for meditation. Carrying this stone helps break down walls when meeting people and assists in understanding one-another. It is a great stone for people wishing to balance their emotions and for people who can become over-emotional or irrational.

    Chakra: Third eye




    Antenna Quartz: These are Quartz Clusters which can be recognized by Quartz crystals growing out in all directions. They are usually floaters but they do not need to be. Recently a new find of these has come out of Russia. These are Growth Interference Clusters with the Quartz being a pure white. The Growth Interference structure of these seem to open more levels or frequencies than regular Quartz does. The one pictured below is one of these.

    Antenna Quartz is just that... an antenna which helps us connect with and communicate with beings from different dimensions and all levels of existence. Use it to open doorways when preparing for journeys. The amazing thing about these formations is that when familiar with them they can help open doorways for being wishing to contact us. For this reason they should only be used by people who are proficient in using crystals for journeying and also people who are familiar with what they may encounter and how to deal with these encounters. Used in an office or at home they can help facilite teamwork and creativity between co-workers or family and friends.

    Chakra: Crown and Third Eye




    Smokey Citrine Quartz: I hesitate in mentioning this one seeing it can cause a lot of confusion but it should be included. This is a Crystal which clearly shows both Citrine as well as Smokey segments. Do not confuse it with a light Smokey Crystal or a dark Cirtine Crystal. There must be separation of the two and they should be clearly defined.

    These Crystals have all the properties of both Smokey Quartz and Citrine. Along with this they also help us lift primordial feelings, thoughts, or emotions to a higher level where we may more clearly define them giving us that much more understanding to these thought which often come to us in a familiar but clouded way.

    Chakra: All




    Ice Quartz: This is another one which is hard to define and which has had little attention given to it within our community. Ice Quartz is recognized as Quartz Shards and/or deeply etched Crystals which are icy clear and have the appearance of ice. The one pictured below is a typical specimen of a deeply etched Shard where the etchings have created a cave-like tunnel system going completely through the Quartz with several exits and entrances. The inset picture shows a small square hole in one of the sides and just above it a large opening into the Crystal which bends and turns within and then exits at several locations.

    Ice Quartz is another stone of communication between different realms. It can be used in multiple ways including scrying. As with Titanium Quartz this stone helps us in keeping our emotions in check under trying times. It can teach us that change always occurs even if the process takes a long time and we do not recognize its initial manifestations. In today’s world this is a stone which helps us come to grips with and deal with global warming on an individual level. It teaches us that change needs to start now in order to avoid cataclysmic events in the future.

    Chakra: Crown and Third Eye.

    Dolphin Quartz: Dolphin Quartz can be recognized by a smaller Crystal growing on the side of a larger Crystal and running along the same axis as the larger Crystal.

    Dolphin Quartz symbolizes a baby dolphin riding just bove the back of the mother dolphin. It is also known as "mother crystal" or "teaching crystal". It is a Crystal of pure and gentle love and projects loving parental energies towards others in need. They also help teach gentle lessons and promote spiritual growth. This is a great Crystal to place within an infant's environment to promote the proper energies and also works well for people with addictions of all types.

    Chakra: Heart, Third Eye

    Quartz Psuedomorphs and Epimorphs: I've decided that I would combine the following three into one grouping for now. So to begin lets explain the three different structures.

    Quartz Psuedomorphs are Quartz structures which have overtaken a previous mineral. Quartz molecules have replaced the previous mineral completely leaving the shape of the previous mineral which is now completely composed of Quartz.

    Quartz Epimorphs can be defined by adding two words to their description. These will either be read in one of the two following ways: Quartz Epimorph on (mineral) or as Quartz Epimorph after (mineral). Specimens referred to as Quartz Epimorph after (mineral) are also sometimes referred to as Quartz Casts. The difference between the two is that Quartz Epimorph on (mineral) refers to Quartz Crystals which have grown completely over another mineral yet still containing the host mineral. Quartz Epimorph after (mineral) or Quartz Cast refers to Quartz which has completely covered another mineral and then over time the host mineral has desolved leaving a hollow cast.

    The first picture given below shows a Quartz after Gypsum Psuedomorph where the Quartz has completely taken over the Gypsum leaving only its shape. The second picture is of a Quartz Epimorph on Calcite where the Calcite Crystal is still contained within the Quartz capsule. The final picture shows a Quartz Epimorph (Quartz Cast) after Calcite where the host mineral (Calcite) has completely desolved leaving only a cast. The inset picture shows the cast.

    All of these three formations are formations of transition. If one is going through a lifechanging event this is the mineral one would want in their environ. They are powerful allies however and should not be used for trivial matters. They also make fantastic journeying tools for traveling into the past to find solutions for the future. When working with these formations one should be aware of what the host mineral was/is and take into account those properties as well. These formations truly are catalysts and should be used as such. Quartz Epimorphs after (mineral) also make for great liquid purifiers seeing they create a natural pocket in which to purify any material you like. Lastly, these formations make for great gifts for people in need of them and should rarely be considered as life partners. So many have passed through my hands I have lost count. You will know instictively when the time has come for them to move on and should not hesitate in allowing them to do so.

    Chakra: All
    Red Amethyst: This is a form of Quartz found in the Thunder Bay region of Ontario which contains Hematite inclusions and in many cases also has a Hematite coating. I’m rather partial to this Quartz seeing I collected a lot of it as a child growing up there.

    Red Amethyst is a great Crystal for meditation and deep guided thought as well as any form of out-of-body travel. It can be used to calm emotions and help in heated negotiations. Leaders who have difficulty controlling their emotions will find this stone of use as it helps present thoughts in a clear and passionate way. It is a stone which allows one to communicate from the heart.

    For Healing Red Amethyst helps with any blood disorders as well as overcoming any toxins which may have found their way into our bodies. It also assists people with bi-polar disorders and other mental unbalances to help keep emotions within acceptable limits not allowing one to become too depressed or too emotionally peeked.

    Chakra: Third Eye, Throat, Heart

    Re: Wolfsong's Quartz formations & Properties.

    Metamorphosis Quartz: Metamorphosis Quartz was first discovered in Brazil and the name was chosen to reflect the qualities of this Quartz which supports the transformation to “Ouro Verde” Quartz, a golden green Quartz which is the result of the irradiation of Metamorphosis Quartz.

    Because of its ability to amplify the energies needed for successful transformations this stone is known as `the`stone of transformation. It helps us prepare for this transformation by replacing negative actions with positive attitudes and then by supplying supportive energies during the transformation. It helps us understand that all transformation comes from within and helps us block out unwanted external energies. Along with transformation it is also a stone of initiation. It can also help direct us through the changes required to achieve orderly situations while making easier the state of change and helping us to find more physical stamina and mental awareness. Metamorphosis Quartz exhibits a back-lit opalescence which brings a halo effect to the mineral and has been used to automatically increase the range, clarity, strength of one’s aura. It has also assisted one in seeing the aura of others. Finally this stone helps assist one with intimacy in relationships of all kinds.

    Chakra: Crown, Third Eye




    Strawberry Quartz: This form of Quartz has caused much controversy in the last few years. A small deposit was originally found in Pikes Peek but this soon became exhausted. A larger deposit was found in Khazakstan but the material is still very expensive. With this being the case and with demand being high the market soon seen something called Cherry Quartz which in some circle was marketed as Strawberry Quartz. Unfortunately this was just colored glass and although beautiful was not a natural product. Although word is out about Cherry Quartz one should still be leery when purchasing Strawberry Quartz as there is lots of fake stuff out there.

    Strawberry Quartz is used to recall past lives as well as for easing tensions in relationships. It is a very energetic stone which spurs on creativity and helps one bring out one`s internal fire. It helps one in connecting the heart with higher levels and helps one live through the heart. It allows one to live in the moment and enjoy each moment. It helps one connect with universal sources for guidance on all things. Strawberry Quartz will come to you when you are ready to work with it and when you are willing to embrace what it has to teach.

    Chakra: All

    Hot Spot Quartz: Hot Spot Quartz is Quartz which has been exposed to a natural source of radiation for thousands of years and which shows circular dark "spots" which are caused by this exposure. It usually occurs in Smokey Quartz. It should be said that this Quartz does not contain any residual radiation and can be used safely in any work.

    This Quartz is believed by some to open paths to information relating to Lemurian ceremonies. It can also be used to gain information to any questions you may have about any topic. Along with this it makes for a great grounding crystal and thus gives strength to anyone working with it. It is helpful for those who tend to speek without thinking and also for those who find thier thoughts scattered easily. It is useful for anyone going through cancer treatment and helps one cope more easily with the treatments. Hot Spot Quartz also helps one confront enemies or difficult situations and is a good ally in these cases.

    Chakra: Throat

    The Picture of the one below also shows several Schrol pieces attached to the Quartz.




    Tubed Quartz: Tubed Quartz gets its name from the hollow tubes which penetrate it. These tubes were caused by Epidote Crystals which grew within the Quartz and later desolved. Some still contain partial crystals. The Epidote also causes growth interference on the outside of the Quartz at times so when this happens the Quartz Crystal also carries the properties of Growth Interference Quartz. Due to the Epidote these crystals tend to be quite brittle so undamaged ones are all but impossible to find.

    This form of Quartz helps to enhance ones connection between the physical and astral bodies. It helps in astal travel and most importantly helps to protect one during these journeys. It assists in centering and grounding exercises and also helps in cleansing the Aura. Tubed Quartz helps one navigate multiple paths to find the true path and in this way helps one find ones life partner in this life. It cuts through false and misleading information to guide you on the correct path at that time. Finally it helps to open and connect the Cakras.

    Chakras: All

    Azeztulite

    AZEZTULITE or Satyaloka Azeztulite quartz
    This stone is said to be one of the highest vibrations in the minerial kingdom. It can attune to all chakras but specifically the third eye and crown chakras. It gets it's name from helping communications with an astral race or interdimensional beings called THE AZEZ. It supposedly helps in communication with other beings of the light s well. please take that info with a grain of salt. As most people say it is mined from Satyaloka Monastery or Mountains in India. Where it is in fact mined in NORTH CAROLINA,USA! another name for this stone is Satyaloka Azeztulite quartz. The International Mineralogical Union’s Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification will state that this minerial does not exist and this is a scam. from the info i gathered, I will agree this is just another form of quartz as it's minerial compostion is silicon dioxide, SiO2.

    When holding this minerial , it causes an encircling spirial energy to form and in meditation this energy helps with the kundalini to rise and surrounding ones energy at the same time. In healing azeztulite can aid similar to that of quartz crystals can. It helps one project a positive aura as well as raise one's vibration and expand your consciousness.

    Vibrates to a number 1.

    Arfvedsonite

    in the meantime here's a quick summary: helps with the crown chakra. helps to improve old patterns and helps with changes in life. it can help in life transtitions such as rebirthing. also helps with astral travel and locating energy blockages in the body.

    chemical composition is : Na3(Fe,Mg)4(Fe,Al)Si22(OH)2 which is a sodium iron magnesium silicate hydroxide

    it's hardness on the MOH scale is 5.5 to 6.

    And from New age rocks.com

    http://www.newagerocks.com/catalog.p...vand&category=

    ARFVEDSONITE has been used to lift one from a depressive state, to see hope and joy in the coming future. The flashes of color help to show that 'even in the darkest sky there is always light to be seen". It has been used to help one focus on and understand dream symbols. It is sometimes known as Astrophyllite, but that is incorrect, as they are two different minerals.

    basalt

    This stone is said to create a more solidifying effect on people you are attached to wether you like it or not.


    Also here's Czechwoods's definition of this stone.


    Basalt has prosperities of bonding and (family) ties. It helps restore broken feelings due to broken homes, bad childhood experience etc so they will not carry on/leak into the next generation.

    basalt helps to bond spirit/soul with mind/body

    depending on what by-minerals it consists of, prosperities vary

    in all cases it is strongly grounding

    some people may experience basalt to be too grounding, even a bit depressing.

    very popular is basalt in a compound with feldspars/agate known as Shiva Lingam, and as Matrix to Amethyst clusters.

    in Shiva lingam, the over grounding is not a matter due to the lingam form and the agate/fieldspar color patterns representing yoni energy; amethysts spiritual power also transcendent the too much of grounding.

    basalt has been used to improve skin appearance and bone structure in ancient healings

    Re: Lightdragon's Crystal/Stone Info Thread

    Astrophyllite

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Astrophyllite
    It chemical composition is(K,Na)3(Fe++,Mn)7Ti2Si 24(O,OH)7 , Potassium Sodium Iron Manganese Titanium Silicate Hydroxide. This is basically a form of titianium. The stone is usually brown to golden yellow.
    It is found in Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, Canada; Pikes Peak, Colorado, USA; Narsarsuk and Kangerdluarsuk, Greenland; Brevig, Norway; and the Kola Peninsula, Russia. On the MOH it is 3-4.

    It helps in absolving one from responsibility and in purging that which should be eliminated from your life to allow further development and progression. It allows for the recognition that there are no limitations and that in fact, we are all stars


    vibrates to a number 9

    stones associated with Neptune, Uranus and pluto

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Yes pluto isn't considered a real planet anymore but it's still a vital part of planet systems. but it's classified as a subplanet now.

    looking through a tarot book called Introduction to TAROT by Susan Levitt. I found stones that relate to these three planets.

    Stones that are related to Uranus are Azurite,chrysoprase and chrysocolla.

    Stones that are Neptune are blue sapphire,aquamarine,turquoise and blue topaz.

    Stones for Pluto are Herkimer diamonds,rutilated quartz, tanzanite and the chalcedony family.

    in the chalcedony,it conflicts with her list of Mars stones which includes red jaser and carnelian which are both chalcedonies.


    some people will associate purple stones like amethyst with neptune and stones like the obsidians and rocks that came from space like meteorites and teckites.

    yet still
    Uranus : Tourquoise, Aquamarine, Labradorite, Falcons Eye,Turquoise ,Amazonite. Malachite

    Neptune : Amethyst, Opal ,Moonstone, Sapphire, Aquamarine

    Pluto: Opal Hematite Bloodstone/Heliotrope, Pyrope Garnet, Amethyst
    Alexandrite; Dark Burgundy Thulite, Pyrope Garnet, Andradite/Rainbow Garnet; unpolished or polished Hematite, Mohogany Obsidian agates in general.

    although malachite is also classified as a stone of venus. and some people refer to meteorites belonging to the astroids like Chiron phollus,etc.

    Stones for the paranormal

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As i used it on a ghost hunting trip and practically had the ghost follow me. The film i took went all black and the heat thermometer broke during the trip then later on it worked. Actually i used tanzanite, quartz, black tourmaline , jet , red jasper and onyx on that trip.

    In dealing with astral dragons all are drawn to crystal quartzs (the variety usually doesn`t matter).


    in working with astral beings pyrite , gold tiger's eye and quartz are usually used.
    Astral dragons:
    in general all are attracted to quartz.

    Lightdragons( ) are usually drawn to areas of positive energy and so far apache tears placed around the house will create an area of positive energy to attract them. pyrite

    Earth dragons will be attracted to pyrite as well.

    water and moon dragons will be attracted to pearls.

    fire dragons are attracted to garnets ,hardened larva (also fresh larva but not really advised.) and other fire stones.

    air dragons will be attracted to yellow jasper and other air based stones


    chaos dragons from what i gather are usually drawn usually black defensive stones. still a tad fuzzy but the standard quartz works.

    Faires:
    rose quartz and fair cross stones

    now others will testify that black tourmaline is an excellent stone when ghost hunting or in an environment that has ghost activity. even hostile ghost activity.unless the ghost is throwing objects at you.

    another combination is black onyx,turquoise and jade

    Anthophyllite

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Anthophyllite is an amphibole mineral: (Mg, Fe)7Si8O22(OH)2, magnesium iron inosilicate hydroxide. Anthophyllite is polymorphic with cummingtonite. The name comes from the Latin word anthophyllum which means clove, the main color of this stone. On the MOH scale it is 5 1/2 to 6. The color range is gray to green, brown, and beige.

    Anthophylite is the product of metamorphism of magnesium-rich rocks especially ultrabasic igneous rocks and impure dolomitic shales.As well as a retrograde product rimming relict orthopyroxenes and olivine, and as an accessory mineral in cordierite-bearing gneisses and schists. Anthophyllite is formed by the breakdown of talc in ultramafic rocks in the presence of water and carbon dioxide as a prograde metamorphic reaction. The partial pressure of carbon dioxide (XCO2) in aqueous solution favors production of anthophyllite. Higher partial pressures of CO2 reduces the temperature of the anthophyllite-in isograd.

    Ultramafic rocks in purely hydrous, CO2-free envronments will tend to form serpentine-antigorite-brucite-tremolite assemblages (dependent on MgO content) or at amphibolite to granulite metamorphic grade, metamorphic pyroxene or olivine. Thus, metamorphic assemblages of ultramafic rocks containing anthophyllite are indicative of at least greenschist facies metamorphism in the presence of carbon dioxide bearing metamorphic fluids

    Known areas where this minerial is found is Pennsylvania, southwestern New Hampshire, central Massachusetts, Franklin, North Carolina, and in the Gravelly Range and Tobacco Root Mountains of southwest Montana;California; Arizona ; Ontario, Canada; Greenland; Kongsburg, Norway and Italy.

    This minerial helps those beings who spend time in the astral plane to come back down to Earth gently. Brings light from the lower chakras (starting especially from the pelvic area) to the Upper chakras. and releases such energy flows to the head area. This process helps to clear the aura of a person and to connect him with his heart. Helps with self-esteem and overcoming limitations

    Augite

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ok the name of this stone comes from the Greek word augites which means brightness. This is in reguards to the bright luster this stone has.

    The chemistry of this stone is Calcium Sodium Magnesium Iron Aluminum Silicate (Ca, Na)(Mg, Fe, Al)(Al, Si)2 O6 and is part of the pyroxene group. Also included in this group are the minerals hedenbergite, CaFeSi2 O6, and diopside , CaMgSi2 O6.when ions (in this case iron and magnesium) can freely substitute between each other. However augite contains percentages of sodium and aluminum that are mostly lacking in diopside and hedenbergite. The magnesium content is also larger in augite than in either of the other two minerals. The diopside-hedenbergite group is analogous to amphibole's tremolite- actinolite groups. The MOH's scale is 5 1/2 to 6. Sometimes this minerial can be found in lapis lazuli

    This stone is associated with success, luck and fortune by helping be at the right place at the right time. this stone can also help you understand life changes with ease and spiritual knowledge as this is a stone of change and metampohosis.

    vibrates to a number 9

    like Herhert said it balances energies such as the masculione feminine ones(yin-yang).Again Herhert said good in communication skills, it can give a person access to the higher realms, clair audientactions,and aids in clarifying the messages recieved. also the stone can confer information which one is ready for.. It can help distingish the difference between worldly manifestation and manifestation which help one further .since this stone is excellent in communication it would be no surprise that it would aid in astral travel and dream recall. Also it is calming, it does calm and helps one in ones choice job. jobs that are most useful for it are watercolor,jewelry making and other similar stuff. It is a cleansing stone as well. It transmutes all forms of negativity into brightness. It also helps in insomnia. ancient Romans believed it drove evil out of a person.

    graphite

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Earlier today I bought a bag of cracker Jacks and I usually open the prizes to see what i got .and this time i got a fun facts sheet. one fun fact is this: pencils are not really filled with lead to write with they are filled with graphite.

    a great electrical conductor.
    It can be used during healing to improve the energy transfer from the healer to the subject who is getting healed. helps one find the freedom everyone needs in one's life, taking charge of ones life.
    It aligns the chakras,Improves writing abilities ,It helps with conversational skills ,Helps with math skills
    Helps with automatic writing. Discourages hostility and reviels anger.In healing it helps with spinal allignment, hearing loss, bowel disorders.


    All i`m saying right now is i wouldn`t advise in making this exlilir via the normal method.

    so with all this, you don't need to go to a rock auction or a store and pay like $1000 USd a gram for it. All you need to so is go to your local stationary store and buy a pack of pencils

    Larvakite

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So far on Larvakite i got .It is mined in norway. it helps relieve a depressive state of mind and puts you in a more positive state of mind. It is said to protect the aura. Relieves insecurity and apprehension and brings the understanding required to realize and achieve the destiny of this life. It also can help to provide clarity to inner sight. Helps with blind faith, aligns all chakras,seals energy leaks as well as a good grounding stone.
    Can help with past life work. It has a tron connection with the Earth's energies and is good with elemental magic and nature spirits. It is said to help with vitality and youth.

    I bought one at a Ren Faire in 2005.helped feel calmer and helped ease the work environment.

    it comes from Norway.

    peach quartz

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    supposedly it's a calming and gently warming stone. helps balance and bring peace to the emotions in everyday experiences. enhances sensitivity to others feelings and of nature. relieves stress and tension and is a stone for relationships, self love and love of others, self confidence and compassion. aids dreaming, surfacing issues dealing with our emotional state.
    also for the spleen, colon, ovaries, skin and womb.

    QUARTZ SPECULARITE w/HEMATITE

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    well specularite is a form of hematite. sometimes specularite is known as Specular Hematite. so keep this in mind if you find this stone. basically this is just another form of Quartz associated with Hematite.

    These are good for the environment BUT, they tend to be so-so to weak for direct uses .
    These are are more of a background or support stone for other stones or energywork/magic/etc.
    The best use for this stone is secondary energy raising for healing or any other purpose as the energies tend to meld with each other without problems.


    bottom line is this , it's not recommended for direct use but recommended for enhancing the environment.

    Galena

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    this link gives full detail: the link
    Galena is a common and popular mineral for rock hounds. Its characteristic cubes, distinctive cleavage and high density make it easy to identify and a favorite in high school geology labs. The structure of Galena is identical to that of halite, NaCl. The two minerals have the same crystal shapes, symmetry and cleavage. Some Galena may contain up to 1% silver in place of lead. The large volume of Galena that is processed for lead produces enough Silver as a by product to make Galena the leading ore of Silver.
    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:
    Color is lead to silver gray sometimes with a bluish tint.
    Luster is metallic to dull in weathered faces.
    Transparency crystals are opaque.
    Crystal System is isometric; 4/m bar 3 2/m
    Crystal Habits include the cube, octahedron and combinations of the two. Spinel twinning is possible forming flattened crystals. Also massive and granular.
    Cleavage is perfect in four direction forming cubes.
    Fracture is uneven and rarely seen because of the perfect cleavage.
    Hardness is 2.5+
    Specific Gravity is approximately 7.5+ (heavy even for metallic minerals)
    Streak is lead gray
    Associated Minerals are calcite, dolomite, sphalerite, pyrite and other sulfide minerals, also lead oxidation minerals such as cerussite and anglesite.
    Other Characteristics: brighter metallic luster on cleavage surfaces than on crystal faces.
    Notable Occurances include Texas-Oklahoma-Missouri area, USA; Germany, Peru, Mexico, Zambia, and England.
    Best Field Indicators are crystal habit, cleavage and, perhaps most importantly, densit

    Gold

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Gold is the most magical of all metals and is usually associated with solar magic and deities of the sun. Gold enhances any magical workings

    I primary use pyrite as a gold substitution. also less expensive.

    other forms of gold are combinations of other minerials:

    white gold:the highest level of white gold is 18 carat . White gold is mixed with yellow gold(natural) and nickel or palladium or silver or even palladium. karats are 18,12 and 9 .Although this gold is more costly. the gold might coat nickel but the outter layer itself is pure gold. hence the different karats. some people have an allergic reaction to this type of gold.

    rose gold:usually gold with copper added to it gives off a rose color to it

    green gold: gold with silver

    purple gold: aka as amethyst gold or violet gold which is 79% gold mixed with aluminium .

    blue gold: gold and indium

    black gold: although oil is sometimes called black gold. one way it's made is by electro-deposition using black rhodium or ruthenium . and another way is oxidation of gold containing cobalt or chromium . Amorphous carbon is also used some times, with the Plasma Assisted Chemical Vapor Deposition process

    Gaia stone

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Gaia stone is sometimes called Helenite or emerald obsidianite

    This is a man-made stone made by fusing together the ash from the Mt. St. Helen's eruption with green glass.the glass itself from what i gather didn`t come from the volcano. for all i know they coulda used 7-up or green beer bottles to get the glass.

    associated with the heart chakra
    used to balance all the chakras
    associated with the Goddess connection
    attracts earth and nature spirits
    assists in bringing prosperity
    given to people to assist in the self-healing of emotional wounds/truamas
    carries the Earth's energy
    sometimes referred to as the Soul of the Earth

    Now some people will refer it as green glass that was junk or someone and just scamming the public . It was not worth being considered a real healing stone.

    Dyed Howlite

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ok . i might add to this thread as howlite is usually dyed blue ,green ,navy blue and sometimes red as well as other colors. I`m gonna start off with the blue dyed variety.
    Howlite that is dyed blue is sometimes called TURQURENTIE. sometimes it is passed off as turquoise. Although it is not as powerful in its energies as genuine Turquoise, it does take on some of the properties of Turquoise, in addition to the natural properties of Howlite. These include dispelling an excessively critical nature, diminishing selfishness and facetiousness. promoting reasoning, observation and patience. For healing purposes it is believed to reduce pain, stress and rage. It can be used in the treatment of disorders of the teeth, bones and muscles. Also believed to help fevers


    Nebula Stones

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is a recently discovered stone from Mexico. sometimes it is called Supernova stone. This stone is NOT mined by blasting.

    What is this stone??? It's believed to be a quartz pentellerite formed as "a glassy unit that devitrified slowly under quiescent conditions." so what is quartz pentellerite. well that it was molten and cooled slowly allowing minerials to seperate and loose it's glassy appearance. This allowed the orbicules (or spherulites) to form as the different component minerals cooled and crystallized at various rates. It is these little clusters or spherulites of discrete
    minerals which give the sky-like appearance to Nebula Stone.
    The minerals of which Nebula Stone are made include quartz, anorthoclase feldspar, riebeckite and aegirine. The first two form the groundmass of the gem, while the latter two are an integral part of the spherulites. It's still in debate wether this stone is igneous or metamorphic. some samples have found zircon in it. and it debated back and fourth that it is a type of jade. also a study of using a x-ray dispersion analysis (EDX) in a scanning electronic microscope. als an x-ray defraction was used and found there was no magnesium and calcium which defintely elimates the possbility of this being a form of jade nephite. also found was the presence of acmite (a pyroxene) and even a trace of epidote in some samples. Which means this could be a low-grade metamorphic type which could have originally been a basalt or chert. Another suggestion is that the rock could have started out as a syenite, ending up as a pyroxene-feldspar schist.
    Bottom line: it's still in debate as to whether this stone is igneous or metamorphic.

    ok this stone is a dark green to almost black stone with green areas which gives the impression of a nebula.Which helps give the meaning "as above, as below" more of a meaning. what forms natually on earth will form natually in the heavens. it helps us to accept that we are part of the cosmos or universe.

    The stone is used to enhance memory and let go of old thoughts no longer useful and go onto new thoughts that are useful to a person. it helps dispel fears and aids in dream recalling. As well as meditations and can help you remember the cycle of life: birth,death, and rebirth. also helps in contacting the inner realms. also gives vitality and greater energy(what sort of greater energy, i don`t know.)

    aids in cleansing of the kidneys.

    Sulphur aka Brimstone(powdered sulphur)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Sulphur aka Brimstone(powdered sulphur),sulfer, sulfur.
    planet:sun

    Sulphur is a stone of energy and vitality which can help remove negative thoughts and feelings. Dispels or prevents a hex on you; destroys someones power over you. used in protection,exorcisms, and to an extent seperation spells.

    Calms the turmoil, clears negativity and finds peace. Lightens the surroundings and brightens the day . The vitality properties of sulphur are said to bring protection and purification. It is used in metaphysics to purify and detoxify environments, thoughts, and even the energy fields of people. Traditional and mystical lore repute that sulphur is helpful for the skin, digestion, arthritis, recuperation, muscles, back-aches, feet, chemotherapy related discomforts and detoxification of substances or toxins.

    Sulphur is a mineral species in the Orthorhombic crystal system, the chemical composition is pure . Sulphur, sometimes contains Selenium and Tellurium. The refractive index is around 1.95 and the specific gravity is 2.07. Sulphur is a very soft mineral, only a 1-2 on the hardness scale. Sulphur is usually seen as vivid yellow crystals on matrix. The main localities for this mineral are Mexico, California, USA, and Italy.


    Sulphur is considered to be related primarily to the solar plexus chakra.

    Jasper:Shell

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    general info reguarding Jasper.

    in addition it's black and white and is a form of marble. Another name for it is ocean stone.

    Saphiresink

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    metaphysically they have the same charactistics of rubies.
    in ancient times they were refered to as female rubies. Also pink diamonds are one of the rarest of gems and often pink saphires are much cheaper replacement .

    Manhattan Schist

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ok. Here's something people usually overlook. the very ground or stones in which you walk. one thing about the sidewalks of New York is they have a lot of sparkle or shiny stuff added in the concrete. the reason for that is because the sidewalks are made up of a stone called Manhattan Schist.

    A Schist is a medium grade metamorphic rock which has various minerials such as micas,chlorite,talc,graphite and other minerials as well. Quartz is sometimes formed from this and is often called qurtz schists. Mainly it is 50% or more of platy and elongated minerials often combined with quartz and feldspars. also it easily brakes up into flakes and slabs. Most schists are Micca but other types are known as well.



    It was formed about 450 million years ago which makes it the second oldest of NYC's bedrocks.(the oldest is Fordham gneiss.). Because of this bedrock, skyscrapers can be errected. If the schist is too far below, then skyscrapers are not wise to errect.
    The depth of which it can be found anywhere from 18 ft. below Times Square to 260 ft. below Greenwich Village.

    It can be identified by it's glittering appearance caused by the white flecks of mica within it.

    It's located mainly in lower and upper Manhattan.
    Other bedrock formations in NYC are Fordham Gneiss which is found mainly in the Bronx; the Hartland formation from central Manhattan,Bronx,Brooklyn and Queens;
    Inwood marble beneath Manhattan and the rivers that surround it; and Staten Island serpentinite which of course is from Staten island.
