This lovely quartz crystal has seven little baby crystal points growing on it. I wrapped it in gold plated wire and used tiny crystal beads to enhance the whole thing. It hangs from a gold plated chain. The Crystal including the bail is 2 3/4 x 1 1/8" and it hangs from a bronze handcrafted chain. Yes I made it myself. You have to see this piece to really get the beauty of it, because the tiny crystals don't show up so well on the front of it. This type of structure is called Barnacal Clusters. The main crystal is also double terminated or has two points.
SCIENCE & MYTH
Quartz crystal, or rock crystal as it is sometimes called, is a common crystal composed of silicon dioxide. Clear quartz is the most common, but white or cloudy quartz results when it is grown in places where frost can exist. Quartz is mined in Arkansas, Brazil, Madagascar, and Colombia, as well as in a number of other places. Named after a Slavic word meaning "hard", quartz has been used as a sacred power object by many cultures, including Native Americans, Druid priests, Tibetan monks, and priests of Christian Europe.
Quartz grows in a hexagonal or six-sided structure, with additional faces that slope toward a point at one end. A crystal with these characteristics is itself also called a "point". Natural quartz crystals come out of the ground in just this shape without being faceted. A point may be totally clear and transparent, or it may contain streaks, lines, rainbows, water bubbles or other inclusions. Optical clarity usually has little to do with a crystal's quality and its ability to amplify the subtle energies.
Quartz crystals are truly a gift from the earth. They have the ability to amplify or strengthen all the energies of the Inner Being, which is everything you are as a person. They strengthen all the things in you that are positive, and they can help you put away things that cause you fear or anger. They can strengthen your ability to be a loving person, and can enhance your abilities to enjoy life and accomplish the things you want in life. They can amplify intention, reduce stress, help with centering (balancing or calming), strengthen inner healing abilities, and surround you with protection by amplifying white light. And they can make it easier to take steps toward personal growth.
The reason quartz is called the master stone is that it strengthens all your energies in a very broad spectrum sort of way. In order to use a quartz crystal to strengthen your energies, all you have to do is keep it with you, or keep it close to where you spend some time. You don't need to do anything special to the crystal in order to have its benefits. For example, if you carry a quartz crystal point in your pocket, it will act as a general amplifier that will strengthen all of your personal energies at the same time.
Barnacle crystals are recognized as crystals partially covered by many smaller, tiny crystals. They are essentially a type of mini-cluster and share the properties of clusters, one of the very best all-round healing crystals, especially good for chakra healing as the combined energy of the individual points combine to produce an energy greater than the sum of its parts.
These common but effective healing stones have properties related to issues of trust and dependence, especially in relation to the principle of family. Improves physical and intellectual fertility. In terms of chakra healing for physical fertility use on the sacral (2nd) chakra, for intellectual fertility use on the crown (7th) or heart (4th) chakra.
Whether the effects of stones and crystals such as this are real or merely a placebo effect is unknown. All we know for certain is that the use of gemstones in healing goes back centuries. And we know that modern science has discovered some surprising applications for the unique properties of certain crystals as all stones and crystals are made up of the same things that make up our bodies!
