Cathedral or Lightbrary Quartz Crystal

Physical description: These crystals are comprised of a main point surrounded by smaller points, some of which merge into the main point. If you can imagine a sand castle, that’s what these crystals look like. The surrounding points may not be whole (as in crystals attached side-by-side), but instead are actually merged into the main crystal. I haven’t seen a lot of these Lightbraries (with the points surrounding the main crystal) in Arkansas crystals; they are rare. I have seen more of them that are partial (a main point with two or three merged points surrounding it). There are merged points that are not necessarily Lightbraries. There is a different energy to the main or central point of Lightbraries.

Metaphysical description: Cathedral or Lightbraries are extremely powerful Lightworkers and are full of wisdom. They transmit very high vibration and can be used to raise your vibrational frequency. It is said the smaller points contain information from the Akashic records, I am told (by my crystal Guide, Venus) that they work more like portals to information rather than \”storage\” facilities.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SIZE:

THE IMAGE SHOWN IS AN EXAMPLE OF A CATHEDRAL or LIGHTBRARY CRYSTAL. YOU WILL RECEIVE A SIMILAR CRYSTAL, BUT NOT THE CRYSTAL PICTURED.

*The size of these crystals will vary. I will send the most representative example of the type of configuration ordered, so if a crystal is small, but an excellent example of the particular configuration, I will send that crystal. If it is particularly small, I may send two in one bag (say 1/2 inch or so)… I aim for a size range from 1 to 2 inches long, 1/2 to 3/4 inch diameter.

Your Cathedral or Lightbrary crystal will come with a business-card-sized printed description of the characteristics and special qualities of the crystal within. Crystal sizes may vary greatly in size as I am selecting for the shape, not the size.

I have packaged it with the description card to help you learn the identifying characteristics and uses of this special configuration.

This crystal is sent as a representative sample of a Cathedral or Lightbrary crystal. It isn’t necessarily sent for its size, and sometimes may be Empathic (chipped, dinged or damaged), if it is an excellent representation of this type (for example, a very good Manifestation point in an Empathic chunk, or an excellent Record Keeper on a partial point).

CATHEDRAL or LIGHTBRARY QUARTZ CRYSTAL – REVISIT

As a reminder, we are going to revisit all the quartz crystal types, condensing the information to just a few items to make remembering easier. This week we’re going to revisit Cathedral or Lightbrary quartz crystals. There is a long blog post on this, posted previously, here. I will try to extrapolate on that information rather …

01911 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point is a clustering of many different kinds of crystals. Tabby, Artemis, Bridges, Self Healed, Lineated Sides, and Drusy. There is a white mineral on the outer surfaces, it is probably Orthoclase or Adularia.

CLUSTER – Clusters are points growing together on a matrix. Some Clusters grow on a sandstone matrix, others on all quartz, and still others may grow from a ‘seed’ of crystal (like a mass of double terminated points). Clusters are good for helping with group dynamics. Families, co-workers, anywhere a group of people might need help in getting along. They are also good for raising the vibrations in an environment and bringing light and energy into that space.

TABBY or TABULAR – Tabular or Tabby crystals are thin, flat crystals. To ‘qualify’ as a Tabby, they should be no more than half as thin as they are wide (2 to 1 ratio). For example, if a crystal is one inch wide it needs to be one-half inch thick (or less) in order to be called a Tabby. If it is two inches wide it needs to be one inch thick (or less), etc. Tabby crystals are good helpers with communication. I remember this because they are shaped like a tablet.

ARTEMIS – An Artemis (Candle) quartz crystal is long thin points with a 6 to 1 ratio. The term “Candle” crystals should not be confused with Candle Quartz. (Candle Quartz looks a lot like a Cathedral or Lightbrary crystal.) These long thin crystals are called “Candle” due to their shape (like a birthday candle), and “Artemis” because they resemble arrows (long and thin). (Artemis: Greek Goddess devoted to hunting and nature most usually depicted wielding a bow and arrows, with the arrow pulled back and ready to fire.) That is the type of energy Artemis crystals have. Artemis (Candle) quartz crystal helps focus energy and speed prayers to their goals (like an arrow).

BRIDGE – A Bridge is a smaller crystal (or crystals) penetrating and located partially in and partially out of a larger crystal. Bridge Crystals help to bridge between worlds. This may be the inner and outer worlds between your inner and outer Selves or between yourself and others in the physical environment in which you now live. They are helpful in any area you might imagine needing a bridge. They can help you heal and get in touch with your inner child (bridging the gap between your outer self and your inner self). They are also good for connection and perspective, bring you up out of the muck, giving you a birds-eye view of a situation. While providing connection, they also help provide boundaries. Also called Inner Child.

SELF HEALED – Self Healed crystals are crystals that have been broken from the matrix and started to re-seal their broken end with new growth. A Self Healed crystal looks like it has scales or triangular layers. Self-healing can be present on the bottom, sides or even tip of a point or cluster. Self Healed points also present as crystals that were broken in half but sort of ‘glued’ back together with new growth. Self-healed crystals are good for healing, as one might imagine. They also have optimistic, persistent energy. A crystal that has first healed its own wounding demonstrates how we are more able to help heal others when we first heal our own wounds. We can take this lesson to heart in our own healing practice.

LINEATED SIDES – Lineated Sides are horizontal striations across the sides of a point. Lineated Sides can be used like a zipper to access further knowledge within the crystal. If you have worked with your crystal for a while and feel ready for more information or feel a desire to go deeper, you can unzip the crystal to receive the next layer of information. I experience this as receiving a deeper knowing or understanding that seems to be released quietly after they are unzipped. If you drag your thumbnail down the side of a point with deep striations, you are ‘unzipping’ the crystal. To zip it back up, drag your thumb from the base back to the tip. This is like hanging up the phone after a conversation. It lets the crystal know you are ‘done for now’ and you can pick up where you left off later. I used to think that unzipping would be like opening a box and looking inside, revealing a few more items, and once you see them, that is all. It isn’t quite like this though. It is more like opening the box, looking down inside and seeing that the bottom of the box opens to infinite space. There is no end to the amount of ‘extra’ you can receive as you work with and unzip your crystal. It is literally like peeling an onion that has infinite layers. Just remember when you finish with your session to thank the crystal for its help, and zip back up until next time.

DRUSY – Very similar to Barnacles, Drusy (sometimes spelled Druzy) consist of very small points that are described as ‘a myriad of very closely set tiny crystals. The Drusy clusters consist of tiny crystal points in their very formation, and are encrusted on either sandstone or quartz-based matrices. The tiny crystals making up the Drusy look like sugar crystals. Drusy may be seen on a point or on clusters. I think of Drusy crystals as assisting with ideas or thought forms ready to spring forth and grow.

ADULARIA – The Adularia included in (and on) Arkansas quartz is white and also golden colored. Fun fact: the optical effect of adularescence in moonstone is typically due to Adularia. Energetically, the  Adularia inclusions bring these things to the table: *tranquility, inward journeying, a stone of the Goddess, receiving inner guidance, assisting spiritually to relate to the Divine Feminine, finding one\’s highest path, emanating the inner beauty and power of the Divine Feminine, assisting in channeling healing energies, opening to inner journeys, releasing patterns which no longer serve, engendering peace and tranquility. (*Simmons, Ahsian)

OR

ORTHOCLASE – Orthoclase is a mineral rarely found attached to quartz crystal. It is a form of feldspar and has a chalky white appearance. Paraphrasing Melody from Love is in the Earth: \”Orthoclase helps overcome tragedy and can provide assistance in the alignment of the chakras, the subtle bodies and the meridians of the physical body. It emits an energy of liveliness and pleasantness, stimulating tact, finesse, poise and refinement. Orthoclase is a ‘stone of cooperative effort’, and provides for contact with the ancient builders of Egypt and can be used to initiate insight into the ancient methods and associated wisdom. The plate like form of Orthoclase can be used to stimulate the higher psychic abilities and to encourage one’s faith in the personal intuitive capabilities. It has been used in the alignment of the spinal structure and the teeth.\” Crystals paired with this mineral will enhance the qualities listed above.

01894 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a multi-terminate Arkansas quartz crystal point. It has some of the characteristics of a Lightbrary or Cathedral, though it doesn’t fit the full description. It’s one of those crystals that doesn’t quite fit into a category (not quite this, not quite that). It is full of interesting Mirror Fractures, and I see arrows and other shapes in them. It is a Devic Temple, has lots of scattered Rainbows throughout and has an Inner Child point near the base. There are Barnacles and some shallow Keys up one side.

LIGHTBRARY or CATHEDRAL – Lightbrary or Cathedral crystals are comprised of a main point surrounded by smaller points, some of which merge into the main point. If you can imagine a sand castle, that’s what these crystals look like. The surrounding points may not be whole (as in crystals attached side-by-side), but instead are actually merged into the main crystal. I haven’t seen a lot of these Lightbrary crystals (with the points surrounding the main crystal) in Arkansas crystals; they are rare. I have seen more of them that are partial (a main point with two or three merged points surrounding it). There is a different energy to the main or central point of Lightbrary crystals. Cathedral or Lightbrary crystals are extremely powerful Lightworkers and are full of wisdom. They transmit very high vibration and can be used to raise your vibrational frequency. It is said the smaller points contain information from the Akashic records, I am told (by my crystal Guide, Venus) that they work more like portals to information rather than ‘storage’ facilities.

DEVIC TEMPLE – Crystals which have Fairy Frost, Mirror Fractures and Rainbows inside are called Devic Temples. They are considered Master Crystals. Other sources have described them as having special places for Light Beings to reside. I feel all crystals have this ability/inclination so I tend to shy away from this term because I feel like it is a little bit misleading (implying that only these crystals have this ability). I include it here because it is a popular search term.

FAIRY FROST – Fairy Frost crystals have fractures and inclusions of air within them. The trapped air is wispy, white and fairy-looking. Crystals with Fairy Frost are sometimes called Devic crystals. Devic Temple crystals have a combination of Mirror Fractures, Rainbows and Fairy Frost. Lots of crystals have Fairy Frost. Some are more fairy-like than others. Crystals with Fairy Frost are able to connect you with Nature Spirits and Fairies (Deva). They encourage us to connect with nature and to care for Mother Earth.

MIRROR FRACTURES – Mirror Fractures are shiny mirror-looking areas within the crystal, caused by damage (shocks (sudden temperature changes), traumas (hits, shaking, shearing Earth movement). Mirror Fractures serve as areas on which to reflect on our traumas and show that our traumas and challenges bring us added beauty and interest.

RAINBOWS – Rainbows are present inside a crystal due to fractures. It is helpful to have very bright light, and you may have to turn the crystal (side-to-side, upside down, etc.) in order to see them. Rainbow crystals are optimistic and happy. They remind us that we are loved and they remind us to look for the gifts our traumas bring us. I think Rainbows are like secret hugs from the Crystal People. It is thrilling and warming. Connect to the gift of love these crystals with Rainbows bring.

INNER CHILD (see also BRIDGE) – Inner Child (a type of Bridge) is a smaller crystal (or crystals) penetrating and located partially in and partially out of a larger crystal. Both names, Bridge and Inner Child, are used interchangeably. Inner Child crystals I see as much smaller and penetrating more ‘in’ than ‘out’ and they have a feeling to me of going ‘within’. Bridge or Inner Child crystals help to bridge between worlds. It may be the inner and outer worlds between your inner and outer Selves or between yourself and others in the physical environment in which you now live. Inner Child crystals can help you heal and get in touch with your inner child (bridging the gap between your outer self and your inner self).

BARNACLES – Barnacles are smaller crystals that are attached to a larger crystal. Usually, these crystals emit a very Old Soul, ancient feeling. The larger crystal is the ‘Old Soul’ and contains the wisdom and trust that attracts the smaller crystals (babies or new souls). I usually find that these Old Soul crystals with Barnacles are helpful to us in the way that a loving human grandmother/father or great grandmother/father would be (Imagine the Oracle from the Matrix movies). They help us to see things from a wider, deeper, wiser perspective. I think of the description of a crystal with Barnacles not so much as a description of the Barnacles themselves, but of the energy of the crystal that attracts or grows Barnacles.

KEY – Keys are indentations left by another crystal. Key crystals help you unlock answers to questions you may have. They help you to access anything which you previously were blocked from accessing before you found the key. Is there an area which you could use help in accessing an answer which has previously been blocked to you? The energy of a Key crystal can help you to find an easier, more direct way in. Imagine this as easily opening the lock on the front door and walking right in (rather than having to check all the windows for one that is unlocked, climbing through, scraping your elbows and knocking your head). Ease of access is what Key crystal energy brings us. I like to put my finger in the Key as I work with the crystal. Meditate on the issue for which you need opening while holding the crystal in this way.

REVIEWS

Taking a walk through Understanding The Crystal People: A Handbook for Lightworkers was educational, enlightening and entertaining. There is so much to comprehend when one wishes to become a crystal guardian; even with my sizeable collection, I gleaned much knowledge from the reading of this book. Genn’s writing style is one that is peppered with visual examples (which were incredibly helpful to me) and stories from her past (which we can all learn from), all mixed together with a keen sense of humor (which is food for the soul); there were times when I found myself chuckling right along with her. Having known Genn for a great many years, I trust her, implicitly, when it comes to locating the very crystal that I am looking for. It is my privilege to be able to heartily endorse this magnificent book.

Michele Doucette, author of The Wisdom of Crystals and Healing the Planet and Ourselves: How To Raise Your Vibration

Understanding The Crystal People is so much more than a book about crystals. A must read for all Lightworkers, and anyone who has ever felt drawn to the subtle energy of crystals, this book teaches us, through the profound and ancient wisdom of the Crystal People, how to reconnect with ourselves (which also includes our own Divine purpose) and Gaia. Genn’s reverence for the Crystal People, important work in bringing them to light, in direct association with the immense knowledge that she gains from working alongside them, is illuminated in this powerful read. Written in Genn’s humorous and warm way of Being, a format that is easy to understand, Understanding The Crystal People also incorporates practical advice and tools on how we can implement the teachings.

Meg Adams, Social Media Specialist and Viral Publicist

Genn John is far more than an experienced resource for guidance about crystal. The knowledge she has acquired, from her lifelong bond with these amazing stones, is shared on every page, but what makes this book invaluable is her ability to help you understand the crystals you have brought into your life and why you selected them (or rather, why you responded when they chose to call out to you). Genn combines an unassuming manner, a rollicking sense of humor, and a literally out-of-this-world connection with crystal. We have all become aware of the horse and dog whisperers within our midst; through the very pages of Understanding The Crystal People, we now have access to Genn John, the renowned Crystal Whisperer!

Patricia Walton, Clairvoyant and Spiritual Medium

We witness the beginning work of a future famous artisan and what a marvelous service she will bring forth, communicating the true helpful intent and service that the Crystal People offer to humanity. “Ask Genn” will become a byword for every collector or purchaser, so they can receive the true guidance and message from their crystal companions.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Crystal People … what a concept!

I know if you\’re reading this book you consider yourself a crystal person. The Crystal People I am speaking of, however, are the crystals themselves; sentient beings millennia older than ourselves!

A new energy is arriving. We\’re moving out of an era of following others\’ authority and more fully into following self-directed, intuitive guidance.

In this book you will learn how to listen to the crystal in your own way, rather than hearing their voice through someone else\’s filter. I will teach you what you need to know in order to do this.

You will learn where the crystal comes from, how they are formed and what language they speak.

You will learn how to speak that language and how to connect with your crystal friend.

I know that many of you have read the names of the different quartz configurations, but I suspect that some of you may still be finding it difficult to determine, with absolute certainty, what YOUR crystal is and how to best put it to use for personal and global healing.

Many books list so many different possible uses for each configuration that it is difficult (if not impossible) to remember the strongest ability of each type of crystal.

I have listed several common configurations, providing you with both detailed descriptions, as well as drawings, to further help you identify your crystal friends.

I will teach you a step-by-step method for reading the physical characteristics of your crystal.

In having included one or two uses for each configuration, I have also left room for you to record your own impressions and experiences.
It is much more important that you determine how each crystal type works for you rather than depending on the opinions of others.

You will learn how to cleanse, clear and program your crystal.
I have suggested many different uses that include healing, gridding and energy amplification, among others.

I have also taken the time to cover where you may find crystals and even how to gather your own.

Are you ready to embark on your journey?

Let\’s go!

MY INTRODUCTION TO THE CRYSTAL PEOPLE

Grandparents who are rock hounds, well, rock!

I grew up in California and spent my formative years scrambling up hills, running wild in the mountains and combing the beaches.

We looked for square nails and purple bottles at old home sites, hematite and gold in the mountains, and agate on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest.

My grandparents were collectors and if I was lucky I got to tag along.

They used to gather Arkansas crystal and ship it back home to California. I remember growing up looking at crystal clusters sparkling and shining in the California sunshine.

Little did I know that I would become friends with these majestic beings!

How lucky am I? How lucky are you? I\’m going to teach you to connect, but, alas, I am getting ahead of myself.

Let me start from the very beginning of my journey.

Besides rocks and collecting, art has been my passion my entire life. I began my path as an adult majoring in the fields of Fine Art and Graphic Design.

After hearing so many people ask me what in the world I was going to do with a Degree in Art, and internalizing all of the negative reasons why this was a bad choice, I abandoned my dream and entered the field of Nursing.

My mother was a nurse, several aunts were nurses. It was the logical step, or so I thought, but logic and happiness don\’t always go hand in hand.

I know that many of you have read the names of the different quartz configurations, but I suspect that some of you may still be finding it difficult to determine, with absolute certainty, what YOUR crystal is and how to best put it to use for personal and global healing.

Many books list so many different possible uses for each configuration that it is difficult (if not impossible) to remember the strongest ability of each type of crystal.

I have listed several common configurations, providing you with both detailed descriptions, as well as drawings, to further help you identify your crystal friends.

I will teach you a step-by-step method for reading the physical characteristics of your crystal.

In having included one or two uses for each configuration, I have also left room for you to record your own impressions and experiences.
It is much more important that you determine how each crystal type works for you rather than depending on the opinions of others.

You will learn how to cleanse, clear and program your crystal.
I have suggested many different uses that include healing, gridding and energy amplification, among others.

I have also taken the time to cover where you may find crystals and even how to gather your own.

Are you ready to embark on your journey?

Let\’s go!

MY INTRODUCTION TO THE CRYSTAL PEOPLE

Grandparents who are rock hounds, well, rock!

I grew up in California and spent my formative years scrambling up hills, running wild in the mountains and combing the beaches.

We looked for square nails and purple bottles at old home sites, hematite and gold in the mountains, and agate on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest.

My grandparents were collectors and if I was lucky I got to tag along.

They used to gather Arkansas crystal and ship it back home to California. I remember growing up looking at crystal clusters sparkling and shining in the California sunshine.

Little did I know that I would become friends with these majestic beings!

How lucky am I? How lucky are you? I\’m going to teach you to connect, but, alas, I am getting ahead of myself.

Let me start from the very beginning of my journey.

Besides rocks and collecting, art has been my passion my entire life. I began my path as an adult majoring in the fields of Fine Art and Graphic Design.

After hearing so many people ask me what in the world I was going to do with a Degree in Art, and internalizing all of the negative reasons why this was a bad choice, I abandoned my dream and entered the field of Nursing.

My mother was a nurse, several aunts were nurses. It was the logical step, or so I thought, but logic and happiness don\’t always go hand in hand.
