    Starbrary (Etched) Quartz:

    NOTE: Let me say at the outset that although working with several of these for some time I have been unable to access the information others so readily do. I’ve come to the conclusion that these Crystals are not right for me at this time. That being said a few friends of mine have helped in putting together the following information for me to share here with you. They all say these are powerful helpers for anyone gaining access to them and all praise their abilities and the information they contain.

    Starbraries are recognized by the presence of glyph-like markings which resemble symbols and geometric markings as well as usually containing a doorway or a key. Many crystals contain these markings but identifying and grouping them can, at times, be difficult. Starbraries are divided into six categories each of which represents a different group of star people. Following are descriptions of the six different Crystal formations and how to identify them.

    The most sought after of the six are the maps, histories and legends of the people of the Cassiopeia system. These are identified by flowing lines and symbols along the sides of the Crystals. While they often have key markings this is not always the case. When picking one make sure it feels comfortable in your hands in several differing positions as this will facilitate the opening of different layers of information. These tend to be the most detailed of the six and contain huge amounts of information.

    The second type of Starbrary features geometric symbols such as triangles, squares, circles and more along the sides which often also show profound keys. These Crystals contain the accumulated information pertaining to peoples from the Pleiades.

    These first two types are the most important and are the basis for most of the information surrounding the Lemurian and Altantean Crystal recollections.

    The third type show more linear patterns similar to a combination of the first two types. These records come from the people of the Leo star system. Most of the information contained within these refers to historical names, dates, weather, events and so on. They contain more factual information rather than the philosophical information contained within the first two types.

    The forth type shows series of indented triangles and dashes. These are often referred to as “Cosmic Crystals” and at times they resemble meteor showers. They are read by their dots and dashes and contain information from the people from a system in Ursa Minor (the little dipper). It is thought these codes were used throughout Atlantis during their civilization.

    Number five on the list are Crystals which contain Titanium containing deep glyphs, furrows and ridges in the faces of the Crystal rather than the sides. It is the only Starbrary which contains markings on the faces rather than the sides. The information contained within them comes to us from the Orion system and of all Starbraries these, most of the time, need companions to help access them (more on companions later). Their information is very intricate and detailed which requires the use of companions to help in making them understandable. It is said these Crystals were very important to Native American cultures.

    Lastly we have a slightly different type. These are almost always doubly terminated or extra-terrestrial (multiple terminations on one side) Crystals. They also always contain keys. The most important thing about these is that their sides appear layered in a similar fashion to Lightbraries but with no raised face termination. These bring to us information from the people of Andromeda and seem to have connections to the Crystals containing information from Cassiopeia and the Pleiades.

    Other Crystals are now being discovered from different systems. One individual I know is presently working with a Crystal thought to contain information from the people of Sirius.

    There are also Starbraries which are referred to as “Master Starbraries”. These contain aspects of all Starbraries and can be used either as companions to help with other Starbraries, on their own to access the information contained within them or lastly, with a companion of its own to help access its information. The one pictured below is a Master and the inset pictures show some of his many glyph variations.

    Companions are stones (not necessarily Quartz or even a Crystal) which help someone access the information contained within Starbraries. There are many ways to use Companions which just a few mentioned here. Some put the Starbrary in one hand and the companion in the other allowing information from both to come together which the companion helps to decode. Others hold the companion in their receptive hand and with their projective hand hold the companion to their third eye allowing the companion to translate and send the information directly there. It really comes down to what the individual is compelled to do and what works best for them. Some find no need for a companion for most Starbraries but almost everyone agrees they make the translation process a lot easier. The companion pictured below as actually a Lightning-strike Spiral Quartz Crystal which itself shows some Starbrary glyphs.

    Lightbraries are essential tools for anyone interested in contact with star people and in studying information they are willing to share with us. As such they will not be for everyone but for those interested in this form of information these are a must have item. As mentioned above they can also help greatly in decoding information from both Atlantean and Lemurian civilizations. Considered by many to be some of the most complicated Crystals to work with and decode it is also felt that the hard work put in is well worth the information gained.

    The left picture is of a Master Starbrary (the insets show some of its glyphs) and the right picture is of its companion.

    Chakra: Crown, Third Eye

    Kullu Rose Quartz: This is a new find of Rose Quartz which comes from the Kullu Pass in Northern India, the gateway to the Himalayas. It gets its color from Hematite (just like Brazilian Rose Quartz) and not from Titanium as true Rose Quartz does. Although not growing as Crystals each piece is intricately structured in an elestial form. They are ridged, etched and pocked. They are in actuality growth interference and not elestials and most are loaded with trigonic record keepers.

    Brazilian Rose Quartz and Kullu Rose Quartz have many similarities and both are considered to be exceedingly special formations. These stones are ideal for opening the heart to angelic realms like no other Crystal can. The trigonic record keepers help deal with life and death issues coming into full understanding of the continuum of All That Is. Linking these two concepts makes these stones ideal for working with life and death issues through direct and open contact with angelic realms in a way that only they can facilitate. They help share with us the lessons of Trinity – body, mind and spirit; child, adult and elder; birth, life and death. Taking all this into account these are considered to be Master Teachers.

    Chakra: All

    Totem Crystals: These are Crystals which contain natural etchings or glyphs which resemble natural objects in Nature. The Crystal below is a Tabby Lemurian from Brazil (a rare configuration to start with) which has a glyph resembling a landing Phoenix or bird.

    These Crystals can become Totems which can assist you in the same ways as Totem animals can. These are very powerful stones which much to teach those willing to open themselves to them. They are great companions for journeying into all realms including on physical journeys. To learn more about them spend some time studying the use of Totems throughout different cultures around the world.

    Chakra: Third Eye, Base

    Attachment 75353


    Chevron Amethyst: Chevron Amethyst is a particular combination of layered or banded Amethyst with layers usually composed of Amethyst and clear or white Quartz. It may at times be layered with other minerals. It is important to keep in mind that much of what is sold as tumbled Amethyst these days is in actuality Chevron Amethyst.

    This is a combination which combines the strengthening and enhancing properties of Quartz with the stress relieving qualities of Amethyst which in turn enhances peace of mind, relaxation and self-discovery. It alleviates addictive tendencies and helps one become more self-aware. It assists with self-evaluation and personal evolution especially in regards to spiritual healing. If one feels burdened down with negativity Chevron Amethyst does a wonderful job of dispelling such energies. The layers remind one that all growth or evolution involves steps and seldom does true and lasting growth happen in one leap.

    Chakra: Third Eye

    Attachment 75354


    Seer Quartz: Referred to by several names including Window Quartz, Seer Stones, Ema Eggs and Dragonegg these are naturally tumbled pieces of clear Quartz which have had a side polished to create a window which allows one to see inside the stone. A human tumbled variety is also available on the market.

    These stones make ideal scrying and/or meditation tools. They are ideal for past life regression work as well as for working on all planes of existence and space-time work.

    Chakra: Third Eye

    Attachment 75355


    Cavity (Pocket) Quartz: This is a type of Quartz which contains any form of natural cavity within it.

    These configurations are great for increasing ones memory capacity and memory stimulation. It promotes a deep perception of issues one encounters and helps one examine these in a rational way. It allows you to discard insignificant details thereby providing a clear picture which brings power and wisdom. It is a stone of logic and helps one in life by enhancing ones inventive and problem solving skills. It is also a useful healing tool.

    A piece of Quartz containing a cavity large enough to hold water or and elixir can be used for several other purposes. The first would be as a seer stone or scrying tool. It can also be used to enhance the quality of elixirs and also to purify water.

    Some use Tibetan Quartz bowls or any other form of Quartz bowl for this purpose. Other Quartzes with cavities carved into them work well as well. They work very well when a larger cavity is required for retaining liquids. Natural cavities tend to be better for the metaphysical uses mentioned in the first paragraph.

    Chakra: Crown and Root

    Shovel Quartz: Shovel Quartz is recognized by one face being quite a bit larger than the others which in most cases has a scanner tip. The main face also has an exaggerated slant towards the back face giving the overall appearance of a shovel.

    Shovel Quartz assists one in finding solutions and building towards them. It helps one understand existence on other levels of reality and helps counteract self-limiting concepts of space-time. It helps in healing unwanted life experiences and also helps in holding on to and using wanted life experiences. It allows us to remember all life lessons which helps us in not repeating past mistakes. Finally it helps in assisting one to gather and retain knowledge throughout ones life.

    Chakra: Throat

    Attachment 75450


    Spiral Quartz: This is a type of Quartz Crystal which shows a spiraling pattern up the Crystal. Although many of these can be found which have been carved by humans they do occur within nature. The most common natural example would be a crystal which has a large angular key running somewhere along the shaft which gives the appearance of a spiral. Some can also be found which show shifts in the shaft’s edges to one side which again give the appearance of spiraling. The one pictured below shows both the key spiral as well as the edge spiraling effect.

    These are truly one of the most important Crystal formations in nature. Quite simply, they connect us to one of the most important shapes in nature which can be found in the largest of formations, as seen in galaxies, and also in the smallest; strands of DNA. They teach us that looking within is as important as looking outside of ourselves. It can be used to bring the universal spiral of energy into the physical body and also helps us maintain a connection to the physical while in meditation. It inspires the energies of love so that all Chakras are activated spontaneously in a flowing movement creating a balance of harmonious male and female energies.

    All formations now have chakra associations added.

    That being said Quartz, in general, can be used for all chakras but as with everything some formations work better for certain chakras than others. In a pinch however any quartz, for the most part, can be used for any or all chakras.

    Prasem Quartz: This is very similar to the Prasem which comes from Russia but the green hue (Hedenbergite inclusions) varies just enough to make it a unique addition to te Quartz world. It comes from the island of Serifos in Greece and it is not new to the mineral world. It was discovered many years ago and the ancient Greeks actually make reference to it.

    This form of Prasem holds much the same properties as the Russian variety (see page 6 post #57 in this thread). In addition this crystal is the ultimate stone for gaining access to nature spirits of all varieties.

    Chakra: Base, Sacral

    Attachment 77101


    Earth Quartz: This form of Quartz is coated by Siderite and although found in several locations worldwide the most popular variety comes from Russia.

    As its name states this is a crystal of the Earth and as such can be used in any work relating to her. They make for great companions on spirit journeys and meditations relating to Earth work. Earth Quartz helps us keep a "green mentality" even in large cities. Kept in the office or carried at work they again keep us conscious of our home and to do everything within our power to keep her healthy. If taken on a nature walk these crystals help us connect to the Earth and helps to open her wonders to us.

    Chakra: Base

    Medusa Quartz: A new find out of Ceara, Brazil, this Quartz comes from one pocket and is very limited in quantity for now. Its inclusions are made up of Paraiba Tourmaline. It is only sold as cut and polished specimens. Its name comes not from the mythological figure but rather from its resemblence to the Medusa Jellyfish. Looked at from the side the two look almost identical.

    Medusa Quartz is used to help create community. It allows us to see that the sum is greater than the individual parts and that in many cases goals can be more readily accomplished through a group effort. It assists in meditation to help one travel to upper realms and also helps with analytical thought processes. Great for those working in any environment which requires mathematical skills and helps in not making errors in your work no matter how redundant it may be. This is a crystal for DNA work and as such makes for a great healing tool on that level.

    The specimen below is actually very small being only about 14mm long. Larger specimens are hard to come by and very expensive.

    Comet Quartz: Comet Quartz is a type of Quartz from Mexico which has dark blue Tourmaline inclusions in it which look like comets and their tails.

    Note: This is a form of Quartz which I have been asked to post about in this thread for some time so I decided to post a picture but not list any of its properties just so people are aware of its existence. This is due to the nature of this crystal and the power it contains. It is not to be taken lightly and should only be used by experienced people who are aware that there are consequences to all their actions.

    Sand Quartz: This is a form of Quartz which is totally saturated with sand inclusions. It has a beauty unlike any other in the Quartz world. Although found world-wide most comes from Brazil. The specimen pictured below has several unique features. First the right crystal has a Fearie Castle formation at its top and second the left crystal has a pocket in the back of it which could be used to hold and purify a very small amount of water or other liquid.

    Sand Quartz is a crystal of metamorphosis and change. People who require creativity within their work or within their lives will find this Quartz useful. It teaches us to re-examine our boundries on a continual basis and encourages growth through change. This is a type of Quartz which requires no cleansing and can also be used to cleanse other minerals. It helps us in breaking down walls and misconceptions in ourselves as well as within others.

    In healing it creates a conduit to release disorder and disease by absorbing these energies and recycling them.

    Chakra: Base and Sacral

    Attachment 77226


    Ribbed Quartz: Although considered a relatively new find I have been informed that these have been used for some time by humans. The confusion arrises with the fact that these are extremely rare formations and seldom find their way into human hands. These crystals are identified by a rib-like structure running along one or more edges. The piece pictured below comes from Nambia which is quickly becoming known for its unusual specimens. It was sent to me by someone knowing its uniqueness and is only the second specimen I have ever seen.

    Ribbed Quartz is a crystal of stability. It adds structure to ones life and assists in all aspects of it. It is also a stone of speech and as such makes for a very useful tool for anyone who gives presentations frequently. It assists in delivering the message in a clear, precise and professional way. It also assists in helping one express themselves in all aspects of their lives. For people who find their lives scattered or find themselves always unorganised this formation helps in creating a stable and organised environ.

    For healing this is a formation for bones. It helps in maintaining them and helps heal and strengthen them after breaks or fractures. It is one of the few crystals which also helps specifically with problems relating to bone marrow.

    Chakra: All

    Penetrator Quartz: this is a type of Quartz which has one Crystal growing into another. It should not be confused with a Manifestation Crystal which has a Quartz Crystal completely imbedded within another Crystal.

    Penetrator Quartz helps one in getting to the root of and solving problems. It helps one identify the problem. When faced with what seems to be an insurmountable task this Quartz will help with identifying a way to overcome it. It helps eliminate blocks in one's life.

    Chakra: Throat, Brow and Crown

    Attachment 77575


    Bridal Veil Quartz: This is a type of White or Snow Quartz which is coated with Dolomite Crystals giving it a veiled effect.

    Bridal Veil Quartz is a stone of long lasting love. It helps remind us where this love came from in difficult times and reminds us that true love is worth fighting for. It helps keep one faithful during trying times or during long absences. Whe placed within an environ it brings a loving peace to it and help eliminate negative energies. This stone can be used to cleanse others but still needs to be cleansed itself on ocassion.

    Chakra: Sloar Plexus, Heart and |Throat

    Attachment 77576


    Smokey Amethst: This type of Quartz contains both Smokey as well as Amethyst areas. The one pictured below is also a Scepter.

    Contains the energies of both (see Smokey Quartz as well as Amethyst). This stone is best used to control and round uncontroled emotions of love and any deep undesireable emotions. It does this by initiating calming deep inner thoughts.

    Chakra: Root and Sacral

    Attachment 77577


    Alpine Quartz: This type of Quartz is hard to explain. I use the term Alpine in referrance to the optical purity of this Quartz. This is the most translucent, lustrous and optically clear Quartz one can find. The vast magority of this Quartz is found in the Alps (France and Switzerland). Much of this Quartz, as the one pictured below, has a slight smokey tinge.

    This is the ultimate Quartz for traveling to higher plains. It is great for journeying and scrying and for opening windows into other worlds. This is a stone of purity and especially the purity and elegance found within nature. It reminds us that sometimes to see this purity we need to look beyond our human limits and open our minds to other perspectives. This stone can be used to cleanse other minerals and never needs cleansing itself. It brings into focus those problems which at times feel insurmountable to overcome and helps us in finding solutions to them.

    Chakra: Crown

    Titanium Quartz: This is the natural version of Flame Aura Quartz which is Quartz which has Titanium molecules bonded to it. One little known fact about Titanium is that it is also a major component of Rutile so any Quartz with Rutile inclusions will also carry some aspects of the following properties. The Titanium in the specimen pictured below can be seen asa white phantom in the left tip.

    This is a crystal of creativity and assists in all workings which involve visibility including scrying. They have been used in Yogic applications as well as for meditation. Carrying this stone helps break down walls when meeting people and assists in understanding one-another. It is a great stone for people wishing to balance their emotions and for people who can become over-emotional or irrational.

    Chakra: Third eye

    Antenna Quartz: These are Quartz Clusters which can be recognized by Quartz crystals growing out in all directions. They are usually floaters but they do not need to be. Recently a new find of these has come out of Russia. These are Growth Interference Clusters with the Quartz being a pure white. The Growth Interference structure of these seem to open more levels or frequencies than regular Quartz does. The one pictured below is one of these.

    Antenna Quartz is just that... an antenna which helps us connect with and communicate with beings from different dimensions and all levels of existence. Use it to open doorways when preparing for journeys. The amazing thing about these formations is that when familiar with them they can help open doorways for being wishing to contact us. For this reason they should only be used by people who are proficient in using crystals for journeying and also people who are familiar with what they may encounter and how to deal with these encounters. Used in an office or at home they can help facilite teamwork and creativity between co-workers or family and friends.

    Chakra: Crown and Third Eye

    Attachment 78175


    Smokey Citrine Quartz: I hesitate in mentioning this one seeing it can cause a lot of confusion but it should be included. This is a Crystal which clearly shows both Citrine as well as Smokey segments. Do not confuse it with a light Smokey Crystal or a dark Cirtine Crystal. There must be separation of the two and they should be clearly defined.

    These Crystals have all the properties of both Smokey Quartz and Citrine. Along with this they also help us lift primordial feelings, thoughts, or emotions to a higher level where we may more clearly define them giving us that much more understanding to these thought which often come to us in a familiar but clouded way.

    Chakra: All

    Attachment 78176


    Ice Quartz: This is another one which is hard to define and which has had little attention given to it within our community. Ice Quartz is recognized as Quartz Shards and/or deeply etched Crystals which are icy clear and have the appearance of ice. The one pictured below is a typical specimen of a deeply etched Shard where the etchings have created a cave-like tunnel system going completely through the Quartz with several exits and entrances. The inset picture shows a small square hole in one of the sides and just above it a large opening into the Crystal which bends and turns within and then exits at several locations.

    Ice Quartz is another stone of communication between different realms. It can be used in multiple ways including scrying. As with Titanium Quartz this stone helps us in keeping our emotions in check under trying times. It can teach us that change always occurs even if the process takes a long time and we do not recognize its initial manifestations. In today’s world this is a stone which helps us come to grips with and deal with global warming on an individual level. It teaches us that change needs to start now in order to avoid cataclysmic events in the future.

    Chakra: Crown and Third Eye.
