Arkansas Clear Quartz - minimal handling, natural - no acid
These pieces are hand dug, hand cleaned and minimally handled. I source these from a "Rock Hound" (rock & crystal lover) from Mount Dora, FL who travels bi-annually to Arkansas to dig his own Quartz points.
These have been handled by less than 5 people. These crystals have never been in an acid bath - they are as natural as you can find. This is why you see some Arkansas clay in the crevices.
About the designations listed above:
Portal - a portal is an extra face either to the left or the right of the main face - sometimes very small. A portal, sometimes called a window, denotes activation of the brain and assistance from our Energetic Helpers. A left sided portal supports linear and structured ideas. A right sided portal supports creative and abstract ideas.
Raised Record Keeper - a triangle seen on a face of the crystal that is raised, usually seen when the light is angled just right on the crystal. A Raised Record Keeper used in mediation will assist one in accessing knowledge of lineage and past lives.
Self-Healed - this means that the end of the crystal that detached from a larger piece has begun growing after mining. If it looks like a clean break, it's not self-healed. Self-Healed crystals look like they've begun growing again at the break usually like a lot of smaller smooth points. Self-Healed suggests that this crystals brings the energy of independent recovery, being able to heal from traumas of any kind. A nice gift for someone who is seeking healing.
Isis Crystal - A crystal with a main face that is 5 sided is considered an Isis crystal. These crystals carry within them the power and energy of the Divine Feminine of Goddess energy. When you need more nurture, love and understanding in your life, brining in Goddess energy is helpful.
Internal Rainbow - this occurs when there is a stress fracture within the crystal. When light hits this fracture we see a rainbow reflected back at us. It adds to the beauty of the crystal and is preferred by some. These are wonderful for manifesting and drawing your desires into your life.
Ice Clear - this refers simply to the clarity of the crystal. These are akin to looking through a window pane. This clarity allows for increased energy flow. These are preferred for use in healing wands and similar items.
