Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Scepter Crystals
A scepter crystal is a rare type of crystal formation in which the main crystal formed around a pre-existing crystal rod, resulting in a unique geological geometry.
The original crystal rod formed over vast periods of geological time and then, conditions changed, and became more favorable to crystal growth. Perhaps the crystal was surrounded by a solution of super-saturated silica, for instance, triggering a rapid growth spurt.
Mineralogists suggest that rapid growth favors the formation of a crystal’s point rather than its faces because points are composed primarily of edges, and during rapid crystalline growth edges and points generate a higher electrical charge than the rest of the crystal, and this higher electrical charge attracts silica molecules, which then form an engorged “head”, “knob”, or “point” around the pre-existing crystal rod, which acts as a “handle” for the new crystal scepter.
In any case, there is no doubt that all scepter crystals had a “troubled childhood” which typically involved two-stages of crystallization, and oftentimes earthquake shocks, multiple freeze-thaw cycles and severe transformations in the chemical composition of the pockets within which crystals form and grow.
This type of crystal scepter was used by ancient high priests and priestesses as a mark of their spiritual station. Such scepters were traditionally used as energy transmitters and library crystals, providing spirit workers with access to Timeless Wisdom Teachings and to Spirit Guides residing in Higher Worlds.
Scepter crystals are considered by 21st century Lightworkers to be powerful amplifers of energy, which can transmit as much energy as other quartz crystals many times their size.
Reverse scepter crystals are narrower at the point than the shaft, and are thus considered to be marvellous tools for inward reflection, for connecting with the Higher Self, and for communicating with Spirit Guides and Teachers.
In addition, healers we have talked to say that the Reverse Scepter is an ideal tool for energy healing. Apply the tip to acupressure points, nadis, or chakras while doing Reiki, acupressure or other healing work, and the scepter will focus the healing energy at the desired location in a most powerful and efficacious manner.
