This spectacular 6.3 inch high, ultra-clear Polished Rainbow and Ice Archangel Michael Channeling Altar, weighing 27.5 ounces, 1.7 pounds or 780 grams, has a seven-sided face opposed by a triangular face on the termination tip, marking this beauty as a channeling crystal.

Rainbow and Ice Archangel Michael Channeling Altar Wand

Within the ultra-clear crystal you'll see a half dozen highly reflective angular shelves composed of thin translucent mica like inclusions that wind from the base to the termination tip, creating a kind of Zen landscape within the crystal that lends itself to meditative viewing. To cap it all off, there are generous splashes of blood red coloration on the mica like inclusions found where the shaft meets the termination tip. This coloration is caused whenever and wherever a crystal is infused with an abundance of iron oxide, or hematite. The presence of such coloration is said by metaphysical crystal aficionados to indicate an affinity with the energy signature of Archangel Michael.

This AAA specimen exhibits completely clean termination faces on all six sides, with no dings or surface inclusions at all!

This lovely polished quartz piece is a size which can easily fit in the palm of the hand for energy work or meditation and has a flat bottom, so it can easily be placed on an altar, a table, or a treatment room. Try placing it in a well lit area such as a window where sunlight can play upon the many reflective surfaces within! 

Properties of Channeling Crystals

Channeling wands contain a distinctive seven sided face opposite a triangular face on the termination tip. Lightworkers say that these crystals have a unique ability to connect the user to inner spiritual guidance, and to sources of Higher Wisdom in spiritual worlds, such as Spirit Guides, Angelic Presences and Spiritual Teachers.

During a crystal healing or Reiki self-treatment session, place the crystal in your left hand, the receptive hand, and form an intent to receive energy and guidance from Divine Source, your Guides, Angels and Teachers. The seven sided channeling face of the crystal's male termination tip should be pointing in toward your wrist. Close your eyes, and relax. 

Rainbow and Ice Archangel Michael Channeling Altar Wand Meditate quietly, observing your thoughts without pursuing them or allowing them to disturb your relaxation. Maintain a state of detached observation, neither approving or disapproving about your thoughts. Allow them to come and go, simply observing their passage. Maintain your attention on your breath, and attempt to breathe deeply and evenly. Breathe in slowly and evenly from the very bottom of your stomach and inhale deeply, until you have filled the diaphragm all the way to your throat. Exhale slowly and evenly through the nostrils, emptying the diaphragm all the way down to the very bottom of the lower stomach, several inches below the belly button. If you like, count the breaths as you go, until you reach one hundred. 
Throughout the meditation, visualize a powerful golden light streaming into your body from the crystal, filling it completely as you count your breaths, so that by the time you complete your meditation, your body is completely filled with the bright golden light.

The Archangel Michael Connection

Archangel MichaelThis powerful Lemurian Quartz Crystal contains hematite, or iron oxide, giving it a distinctive pinkish hue, and a distinctive metaphysical connection with Archangel Michael.

Esoteric Christianity makes a link between hematite and Archangel Michael, and a quartz crystal containing hematite can provide the bearer with a powerful connection to Michael, providing access to the Archangel's loving wisdom and power to dissolve illusion through the activity of his famous sword, the sword of Ultimate Truth. During the Libran lunar month in the northern hemisphere, the Draconid meteor showers will be visible. At this time of year, when sensational meteor showers, largely composed of iron, traditionally streak across the night sky, Esoteric Christian philosopher Rudolph Steiner’s clairvoyant vision saw the traditional flashing iron sword of Michael.

The meteoric sword of Michael was thought to cleanse the Earth’s atmosphere of summer's sulfurous influences, allowing the Higher Self to emerge and guide the initiate along the path of Spirit toward the birth of the Inner Christ Light, an event which takes place in December, during the festival of Christmas. For more information on Michaelmas, see "Libra Festivals: Michaelmas, Rosh Hoshanah, Ramadan and Navratri".

Hematite "assists in the dissolution of negativity, transforming the negativity, in the dissolved state, to the purity of the universal light of love," according to Melody. "It can be used to stimulate the desire for, and to facilitate the attainment of, peace, self-control and inner happiness".

Properties of Clear Quartz Crystals

The word crystal comes from the Greek word "krystallos", meaning ice. The Greeks found quartz crystals high in the frigid Alpine mountains, and Pliny (c. 62-113 A.D.), the foremost historian and mineralogist of his time, believed quartz crystal was ice that had frozen so hard it  would never thaw.

One common legend is that crystals were originally heaven’s holy water, poured out by God into the aethers. As the holy quintessence descended toward the Earth, it froze into ice in outer space, where it was petrified into permanent solidity by angels so that when it fell to Earth it would be available permanently for the protection and blessing of mankind. [See “Rock Crystal: Nature’s Holy Stone”, by Frank Dorland]

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.

Although quartz makes up a large portion of the Earth's surface, there are only three places in the world that have enough high quality quartz crystal to warrant mining. These are Brazil, Madagascar, a small island off the coast of Africa, and Mt. Ida in the Ouachita Mountain range of Arkansas.

The remarkable geometric patterns quartz crystals form in nature have been the subject of scientific inquiry for centuries. In 1660, Renaissance Saint and scientist Nicolaus Steno conducted precise measurements of quartz crystal structures and found that regardless of their source, the angles between corresponding quartz crystal faces are constant. This became known as Steno’s Law of crystallography.

In the next century, the Abbé Haüy formulated the geometric law of crystallization. His work led to the modern definition of a crystal: any substance in which the molecules or atoms are arranged in a regular, ordered way in three dimensions.Crystals formed of the same mineral occur naturally in many different shapes, but all share specific internal structural characteristics. 

There are believed to be seven shapes, or "systems" into which crystals can form. They include cubic, hexagonal, tetragonal, orthorhombic, monoclinic, and triclinic. Quartz manifests in hexagonal crystalline systems, commonly having the form of a six-sided prism terminating in a six-sided pyramid.

Modern science has discovered that quartz crystal, silicon dioxide (SiO2), contains 46% silicon and 53% oxygen. 

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. 

Twins are common, and considered by spiritually minded crystallographers to have unique metaphysical qualities. Both single and double terminated crystals abound.

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. Varieties include: ordinary colorless crystallized quartz, or rock crystal, rutillated quartz, rose quartz, smoky quartz, milky quartz, and amethyst.

They 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 a unique ability to convert electrical energy to mechanical energy and vice versa. This is called the piezoelectric effect.

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.

Native Americans revere quartz crystals as the brain cells of Grandmother Earth. Viewing the Earth as a living organism, primitive stones such as granite and sandstone comprise the skeleton of the organism, the Earth’s crust is the skin. Vegetation and water channels make up the lifeblood of Earth’s body, and metals and minerals function as glands, nerves and sensory organs.

“The shining water that moves in the streams and rivers is not just water, but the blood of our ancestors,” Chief Seattle explained. “If we sell you our land, you must remember that it is sacred. Each ghostly reflection in the clear waters of the lakes tells of events and memories in the lives of my people. The water’s murmur is the voice of my father’s father. The rivers are our brothers, They quench our thirst. They carry our canoes and feed our children. So you must give to the rivers the kindness you would give any brother.”

Quartz crystals, in this worldview, act as the Earth’s brain-mind, through which Spirit, the Universal Mind, maintains communication with all parts of Earth’s organism, equilibrating the earth’s temperature, moisture levels, and other important variables. In addition, quartz crystals and other gemstones collectively create and modulate an electromagnetic field around the Earth, which is a vital component of the Earth organism’s auric field, and clear quartz crystals, identified with white light, represent the unifying vibrational frequency that harmonizes the seven rainbow rays of Earth’s many varieties of gems and minerals, within that auric field.

Thus in the Native American tradition, any human being who can attune to the power of the quartz crystal is in tune with Grandmother Earth, and obtains the ability to communicate directly with Spiritual worlds.

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 know 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.
