This lovely, energetically powerful unpolished, untreated Clear Quartz Laser Wand comes from the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil. It is 6.33 inches long and weighs 135 grams or 4.75 ounces.
This specimen has a well formed termination tip, good clarity, striations along two sides of the shaft, and some brilliant mica like inclusions near the base of the shaft, along with some matrix on the outside and inside the crystal.
Properties of Muzo Growth Habit Crystals a.k.a. Laser Wands
Some quartz crystals, lilke this lovely specimen from Diamantina are perfect examples of a crystalline structure created by what is known as the "Muzo crystal growth habit". You can see three thin faces on the termination tip and three wider faces. Two of the thin faces resemble tall diamonds.
This habit was first described by Rykart, commenting on crystals from Muzo in Colombia. A similar crystal "habit" or structure has also been found on rock crystals from pegmatites in Minas Gerais, Brazil, and from alpinotype vugs in Switzerland.
Many clear quartz crystals from these areas, commonly known as "Laser wands", display the defining characteristics of the "Muzo habit". Muzo habit crystals display horizontal striations up and down the shaft, and can form very steep termination tips, such that a cross section of the upper end of the shaft appears triangular, although the lower body of the shaft remains hexagonal in shape.
These Laser Wands exhibit a large female end, and a steadily narrowing hexagonal shaft with three wide faces and three narrow faces, leading to an extremely sharp male termination tip.
Crystal healers have discovered that this creates a crystal that is ideal for receiving, amplifying and transmitting a highly focused, coherent stream of Universal Life Force Energy, which is very helpful for meditation and for energy treatments.
The energy enters through the female end of the wand and as the energy spirals down the shaft, it is amplified by every face it encounters. When the highly concentrated stream of energy reaches the narrow, sharp male tip of the Laser Wand, the energy reaches a point of maximum concentration and can be transmitted as a highly coherent beam, suitable for use in energy treatments.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Clear Quartz
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.
Clear quartz has both piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties, so quartz crystals will respond to heat and pressure by changing their electrical polarities, and by radiating energies. Quartz crystals are ideal for receiving, storing, amplifying and transmitting energy. They are used in computers, liquid crystal display watches, radios, radar systems and many other types of advanced technologies.
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.
From a metaphysical viewpoint, quartz crystals are cosmic tuning forks, harmonizing the soul, mind, heart and body of the user with the vibrational frequencies of Spiritual worlds – which are after all simply realms of light resonating at a much higher frequency than the material world.
Clear quartz crystals have been used extensively for physical healing, rejuvenation, meditation, and spiritual development in societies all over planet Earth for millennia. Buddhists, indigenous shamanic healers of the Americas, Asia and Africa, Egyptians, Mayans, Aztecs, Romans, Scots, Celts and Australian Aborigines all used clear quartz crystals in their healing arts and spiritual practices.
This crystal has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It has also cleaned and charged with the natural energy of sunlight. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
We trust that you will use this powerful crystal with loving wisdom and respect its long journey in the Earth that has lasted for many long historical cycles. This crystal is a powerful tool, a love-gift from the Divine Mother.
