    Crystals for Beginners

    Types of Crystals
    Types of Crystals

    The word crystal comes from the Greek word ‘Krystallos’, which means frozen light.

    With their distinctive pattern, shape and composition, beautiful tones and flickers of sparkle in certain lights, there is something compellingly fascinating about crystals. From draping them around our neck to enhance an outfit to putting them pride of place on the mantle piece for all to see, or using them as a potent aid for crystal healing and meditation, these divine precious stones have a multitude of uses.

    If you are keen to start utilising the unique powers of crystals but are unsure where to start take a look at the following guide to crystals for beginners.

    The Different Type of Crystals

    There are essentially seven different types of crystals. They are classified according to their shape, which are cubic, trigonal, hexagonal, tetragonal, orthorhombic, triclinic and monoclinic. The atoms of a mineral form the geometric shapes that make up the crystals. Minerals are defined by their chemicals that make them up and the way in which they crystallise.

    When crystals are categorised by their physical/chemical properties there are four types of this precious stone: Covalent crystals, which has real chemical covalent between all of the atoms in the precious stone. Metallic crystals refer to gemstones that are made up of individual metal atoms that sit on lattice sites while outer electrons flow freely around the lattice. Ionic crystals are where the individual atoms are held together by electrostatic forces. Molecular crystals are held together by a chemical bond. These types of gemstones tend to be soft and have lower melting points.

    The Different Uses of Crystals

    When we think of crystals, beautiful jewellery such as stunning crystal pendants and exquisite crystal beads immediately spring to mind.

    As well as buying ready made pieces of crystal jewellery to compliment and enhance an outfit for a special occasion, incorporating crystals into your jewellery can be a lot of fun.

    With their stunning natural tones and striking patterns, agate beads are the perfect accessory to make your own unique and vibrant crystal beads. Agate
    is one of the most attractive crystals that comes in a wide range of colours, from pale blue to black and white stripes.

    Crystals & Feng Shui

    Crystals are by no means just for wearing and are used as sacred objects in a number of healing activities.

    Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese process that examines how people are affected by the environment in which they live. In Feng Shui, crystals are used to help create good energy in a home.

    For example, rose quartz crystal is used in Feng Shui to attract romance and love or to help heal a broken heart. Citrine crystals help heal those with low self-esteem while black tourmaline has strong protective energies.

    Crystals & Meditation

    Meditating with crystals brings a whole new dimension to this ancient healing practice. You will need to choose what type of crystal you want to meditate with.

    It is believed that if you choose a crystal with patterns or fault lines in it, you will ‘lose yourself’ within the crystal whilst meditating. For anyone interested in spirituality and crystals, meditation utilises both.

    Using crystal balls can be a great way to radiate the energy of crystals in all directions while meditating. For example, beautiful calcite crystal balls are considered particularly spiritual and uplifting and have unique physical healing powers.

    All About Crystal Balls & Scrying

    Crystal Scrying
    Crystal Scrying

    We’ve all seen images and films depicting witches and sorcerers gazing into gleaming crystal balls, peering into the future. From ancient times, crystal spheres have been considered by mystics to be of the perfect shape and material – often clear quartz – to access hidden information as well as for crystal healing. This practice of gazing into crystal balls is also known as ‘scrying’ and, as we’ll see, can often involve the use of elements other than spheres.

    Why A Crystal Ball?

    The spherical shape of a crystal ball is said to have the energy of harmony and perfection, radiating the energy of crystals equally in all directions. The properties of quartz crystal also play a large part in this, being one of the most important healing crystals available. Quartz crystal is reputed to channel energy through its helical spiral crystalline form. Even the most subtle healing energy can be channelled by a crystal ball into any space, neutralising many negative emotions.

    What is Scrying?

    Diviners and fortune tellers have used crystal balls as a way of looking into the future or simply for specific revelations. Scrying can be practiced using diverse elements such as water, fire, leaves, smoke, or polished scrying mirrors. In fact, any smooth surface may be used, such as a bowl of liquid, a pond, or a crystal (especially crystal balls). In the past, the visions that resulted from staring into these elements were believed to have come from the spirit world. Today, any images that emerge are thought to come from the subconscious. When using crystal balls for scrying, a person focuses their attention on the sphere, discarding unwanted thoughts and going into a trance. Any images that appear are then are acknowledged and this leads to an even deeper trance state. The scryer then interprets the flow of images like a movie.

    Scrying throughout History

    Throughout history, spiritual visions have been sought through the practice of scrying – which uses not only crystal spheres but other objects as well.

    • According to the Shahnameh, a late 10th century Persian epic work, the Cup of Jamshid – a cup of divination – was used by wizards as a way of looking at the seven layers of the universe.
    • Joseph Smith, prophet of the Mormon religion, claimed to have used ‘seeing stones’ in order to translate an ancient text he had discovered.
    • Nostradamus was perhaps the most famous scryer, using a bowl of water to see into the future while in trance.

    Which Crystal Ball Should I Choose?

    For scrying, choose a crystal ball that appeals to you the most and whose properties correspond with your needs. Clear quartz, smoky quartz, and amethyst are the most popular of the crystal spheres. Remember, a crystal ball need not be for divination – they make wonderful display pieces and unique additions to home décor.

    Jade -The Luck Crystal

    Jade & Silver Pendant
    Jade & Silver Pendant

    Jade has been highly prized as a good luck stone for thousands of years. The Chinese have had great regard for precious jade crystals since at least 1950 BC, using it to strengthen the body, increase longevity, and cleanse the blood. Not only that, they have always considered it a symbol of purity and wisdom. Ceremonial jade was once mined from deposits within the Yangtze River Delta.

    Ancient cultures of the Americas, such as the Maya, have used it in carvings and as a kidney healing stone.

    The Olmec and the Maya could only find jade in the Motagua River valley in Guatemala, reserving it for the elite. Hieroglyphs were often inscribed on to jade, which were highly symbolic, involving elaborate rituals.

    Known mainly for its translucent emerald green colour, Jade is actually the gemstone name for two different mineral forms, Nephrite (green, cream, or white) and Jadeite (yellow, red, black, green, white, and purple). Deeper coloured stones are more valuable, and the most valuable form is called Imperial Jade, which is translucent and emerald-green in colour.

    Gifts Made with Jade!

    Carved from beautiful green Nephrite jade, our double-twist Jade Pendant makes an enthralling gift. The double twist represents not only the path of love but also the coming together of two people for life, sharing a life as one.

Look to your celestial angel for cleansing and detoxifying your own energy. The angel form is very appropriate as jade is said to alleviate pain and heal illness.

    Stonehenge & Preseli Bluestone

    Home of Preseli Crystals
    Carn Edward with View to Cerrig Lladron, Preseli.

    Preseli Bluestone is a uniquely British stone, native to the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire, Wales.  In 1923, petrologist Herbert Henry Thomas identified that bluestone from the hills corresponded to that used to build the inner circle of Stonehenge. Recently, geologists have identified Carn Menyn, a grouping of craggy rock outcrops in the Preseli Hills, as one of the bluestone sources. Another theory is that bluestone from the area was deposited near to Stonehenge by glaciations.

    Perhaps the reason that the ancients used Preseli Bluestone in their sacred monument was because they recognised the stone’s strong connections with the electrical impulses produced by the human body, improving electrical communication throughout the body. Preseli is now generally regarded as having a strong connection with the heart. Preseli, it is believed, serves to balance and strengthen the immune system.

    Bluestone Healing

    Britain’s Geoffrey Wainwright, president of the London Society of Antiquaries, speculated that Stonehenge may have been an ancient healing site – the primeval equivalent of Lourdes. “It was the magical qualities of these stones which transformed the monument,” he says, “and made it a place of pilgrimage for the sick and injured of the Neolithic world.”

    Chakra practitioners look to Bluestone as a way of clearing the Throat Chakra, which is said to help in matters of communication and the body’s regulatory process.

    Preseli Crystal Gifts

    CrystalAge has produced some stunning products from a new find of Preseli Bluestone! If you love crystals, you are bound to enjoy this granite-like stone which is full of ‘night sky’ inclusions of grey feldspar that give it a striking appearance.
