This Diamantina DT Druzy Scepter with Keystone Crystal is endowed with well defined, unblemished termination tips, a carpet of micro-crystals along two sides of the shaft, marking this beauty as a druzy wand, and a prominent keystone crystal emerging from the shaft where it meets the male termination tip!!
Diamantina, Brazil as the name suggests, was a center of diamond mining in the 18th and 19th century, and still produces some of the most amazing super-clear, high-energy quartz found in the world today.
Properties of Double Terminated Crystals and Keystone Crystals
Double terminated crystals are multi-tasking crystals. Energy can be transmitted or received from either termination. Energy can be transmitted and received simultaneously. Doubles are excellent facilitators for those seeking to access inner spiritual guidance while dreaming or during meditation.
Simply place the crystal under your pillow while sleeping or hold the crystal in your hand during meditation. Double terminated crystals are also excellent energy shields. Carrying one on your person will strengthen the aura, and placing one in a room will elevate the frequencies of all ambient energies within the space.
Key crystals are small, usually hexagonal or three-sided crystal rods that grow from outside the primary crystal inward, and penetrate the shaft or the termination tip of another crystal.
This key crystal can enhance your connection to Guides and Teachers, and other Beings of Light in Higher Realms. The key crystal also enlivens the flow of Shakti or kundalini energy which enhances the effectiveness of meditation and crystal healing sessions. I have used this type of crystal in this manner, and experienced its power. In fact, the others in the room with me also experienced heightened states of awareness during meditation at the same time.
Properties of Clear Quartz Crystals
Quartz is the low-temperature stable form of silicon dioxide or silica. Silicon and oxygen are the two most common elements in the Earth's crust. Quartz crystal is perhaps the most common mineral found on the face of the Earth. Sand and sandstone are considered “clastic” forms of quartz by mineralogists, meaning that they are formed of fragments of pre-existing rocks.
Each tetrahedral quartz molecule is composed of four atoms of oxygen and one of silicon. Chains of tetrahedral quartz crystals bond in spirals which in turn link to form a precise, repeating latticework of molecules. This latticework creates the macroscopic geometric quartz crystal structure.
Because of the variability of their molecular geometry, which depends upon the angle of the bridge bonds between oxygen and silicon, each quartz crystal is unique, and quartz crystals often fail to conform to the ideal geometric structure.
Quartz may be transparent, translucent, or opaque; it may be colorless or colored. Many varieties of quartz occur around the world because quartz forms in so many different geographical climates and rock formations. Quartz crystals may contain streaks, lines, rainbows, metallic flakes, clouds, water bubbles or other inclusions. The inclusions are of two primary kinds -- metallic flakes and clouds. Clouds are created by tiny bubbles or flows of fluid entering the crystal during the period of its formation.
The beauty of the inclusions can add to the value of the quartz crystal, depending upon the nature of the inclusion, its visibility, and overall appearance of the crystal. Inclusions do not diminish the utility of the crystal for spiritual or energy work, and often inclusions will enhance the efficacy of the crystal, imparting specific metaphysical properties that are prized by healers and energy workers.
Quartz crystals have been used by healers, spiritual teachers, and scientists of the sacred throughout history to receive, transmit, store, focus, amplify, transform and balance the various forms of energy found in our Universe, all of which can be considered to be interchangeable forms of Universal Light.
Quartz crystals have this marvelous ability because, metaphysically, quartz crystal expresses the unity of the five elements (Earth,Air, Fire, Water, and Ether or Spirit).
Crystals grow deep in the earth and form much of the earth’s crust, yet crystals, like the element air, allow light to pass through them.
Crystals are fiery in that they have piezoelectric properties yet they are watery in their hexagonal molecular structure which resembles snowflakes, and in their ice-like appearance.
Crystals are quintessential expressions of the element of Ether or Spirit, which is synonymous with Universal Life Force Energy, the fundamental energy that sustains all forms of energy in the known universe.
Thus crystals represent the unity that underlies the apparent multiplicity of material creation, the unity of both material and spiritual worlds.
We often use crystals for psychic protection, purification and to clarify things of a spiritual nature. See our article on Psychic Self Defense for more information along these lines with many suggestions on how to protect yourself from unwanted energies.
You can read more about crystals in our article Using Quartz Crystals in Digital Technology, Healing and Meditation or you can read about The Crystal Wisdom of Marcel Vogel and crystal healing in our Vogel Archives along with edited chapters of his unpublished book, given to Satya Center from Marcel Vogel's family.
This crystal has been cleaned and charged with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energetic attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing so it will continue to channel and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
