Growth Interference Quartz Crystal

Physical description: Growth Interference crystals have missing areas in the main point where another mineral was growing during the development of the crystal and then subsequently disappeared. Lots of times it looks like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal, other times there are sharp-edged geometric shapes (square, rectangle, parallelogram). There used to be a mineral present that isn’t there anymore, so they sort of look magical to me. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasse.

Metaphysical description: The properties of Growth Interference crystals are a bit like crystal imprints. They represent how we can adapt and grow around a certain situation (or person), and then if the situation no longer serves, it leaves, but not without leaving a mark. Because the shape is changed by a non-crystal structure, I tend to think of Growth Interference as situations that affect us which are non-human such as illness, etc.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SIZE:

THE IMAGE SHOWN IS AN EXAMPLE OF A GROWTH INTERFERENCE 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 Growth Interference 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 Growth Interference 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).

01881 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a completely natural (un-cleaned) Arkansas quartz crystal point, just as it came out of the crystal mine. It has iron oxide still attached, it has Growth Interference, a large Key and Etching on one of the faces. It is Empathic. It has a very grounding, earthy feel.

GROWTH INTERFERENCE – Growth Interference crystals have missing areas in the main point where another mineral was growing during the development of the crystal and then subsequently disappeared. Lots of times it presents with a look like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. Other times in deep square imprints. Because there used to be a mineral present that isn’t there anymore, they look and feel magical to me. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasse. The properties of Growth Interference crystals are a bit like crystal imprints. They represent how we can adapt and grow around a certain situation (or person), and then if the situation no longer serves, it leaves, but not without leaving a mark. I see Imprints as more associated with situations regarding people (crystal on crystal) but because growth interference crystals is caused by non-crystal influences (other minerals), I see Growth Interference as referring more to non-human influences (such as environmental circumstances or health issues, etc.)

IRON OXIDE – golden-yellow mineral coating occurring on lots of crystals, usually taken off with an acid bath. Sometimes has rainbow iridescence on the outer layer (like rainbows you see on oil slicks). This is referred to as “Natural Rainbow Aura”. These crystals have an Earthy and grounding energy and remind us what crystals look like in their natural state (before an acid bath).

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.

ETCHED – Etched crystals have abrasions on the outer areas of the crystal that look like hieroglyphics or writing of some sort. To me, Etched crystals (or the etching on crystals) is symbolic in that it looks like writing or takes other shapes. (For example, in the case of Lightning Strike, it looks like a lightning bolt zigzagging across.) I feel that the best way to use these crystals depends on the particular shape the etching takes (refer to SIGILS).

SIGILS – Sigils are any markings that represent an idea. For example, a dollar sign is a sigil that represents money and abundance. Crystals may have markings that resemble things such as snake skin, mountain ranges, water or even cities. Sigils are surface features; you view them the same way you view a Record Keeper. Because a Sigil is a marking that reminds us of an idea or invokes a memory or feeling, the meaning will depend on what the sigil represents to you. When you see Sigils and images, a good thing to do is let your mind’s eye wander through them and see if they take on a life of their own (like a video in your mind’s eye). This is a form of scrying and a way to receive the messages that the crystal is bringing to you through the Sigils.

EMPATHIC – Broken, chipped and otherwise damaged crystals are called Empathic. Empathic crystals bring out compassionate feelings in us. The crystal picks up this empathy and amplifies it. Often the lesson of Empathic crystals is to remember to be compassionate and empathetic to our OWN chips, dings and perceived flaws and to remember we are still beautiful, whole, lovable and worthy.

Quartz Crystal Cluster 00155

This Arkansas quartz crystal cluster has some Golden Healer points and some layered Iron Oxide (iron oxide that isn’t coated in a layer of clear quartz). It has Growth Interference on the base and a compact Elestiated shape.

GOLDEN HEALER – Golden Healers are quartz crystals that are partially or totally covered with a transparent golden-yellow mineral (iron oxide). Lots of crystals have this iron oxide coating, but what makes Golden Healers special is that the iron oxide is trapped beneath a layer of clear quartz. The coating on a true Golden Healer will not come off with acid washing. Often the lightly coated Golden Healers will have rainbow iridescence on the outer layer (like rainbows you see on oil slicks). This is referred to as “natural rainbow aura”. These points emit an especially high energy. Golden Healer crystals are good for healing and have a soft, bright energy. The lightly coated Golden Healers have an enthusiastic and helpful liveliness in their aura. You don’t even have to pick them up to experience this shift. Golden Healers are one good example of very small points having as much or more potential energy as a very large point, ounce for ounce (much as the strength of an ant versus a human).

GROWTH INTERFERENCE – Growth Interference crystals have missing areas in the main point where another mineral was growing during the development of the crystal and then subsequently disappeared. Lots of times it presents with a look like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. Other times in deep square imprints. Because there used to be a mineral present that isn’t there anymore, they look and feel magical to me. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasse. The properties of Growth Interference crystals are a bit like crystal imprints. They represent how we can adapt and grow around a certain situation (or person), and then if the situation no longer serves, it leaves, but not without leaving a mark.

These crystals have an Earthy and grounding energy and remind us what crystals look like in their natural state (before an acid bath).

ELESTIAL – Elestial crystals have natural terminations over the body and face of an etched and/or layered crystal. What does that mean? They really aren’t in the shape of a point. They are layered all over with self-healed looking surfaces. Sometimes points are what I call ‘elestiated’. To me that means it is a point that isn’t quite all point, and isn’t quite all Elestial, but sort of a combination of the two. Elestial crystals have a soft, loving energy. They usually feel angelic to me. I use them when I want to connect to an angelic energy all around me. Their energy is less focused, more amorphous (having no definite form, without shape).

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.

Quartz Crystal Cluster 00153

This Arkansas quartz crystal cluster has a Sandstone included quartz base with heavy areas of Growth Interference. It has a light Smoky color.

INCLUDED – Included crystals occur when crystal is forming, and there may be other substances present in the solution. These substances might be air bubbles or other minerals. They become trapped (or Included) within the crystal point during its growth and are called Inclusions or Included crystals. Air and moisture inclusions fall into the category of Fairy Frost, a non-mineral inclusion. The properties of Included crystals will vary, depending on the mineral included within the crystal. The properties of the included mineral will be enhanced and amplified by being trapped within the structure of quartz.

SANDSTONE – Sandstone enhances creativity, helps build and strengthen relationships, truth and clarity of thought/sight, balance reality. Encourages ease of movement and change, promotes acceptance of humanity, discourages bad temper and grouchiness.

SMOKY – Crystals become smoky when exposed to radiation. They may be natural or irradiated by man. Typically, natural Smoky crystals are usually a lighter grey/brown than crystals which have been artificially irradiated; these are usually almost black. It is possible to find very dark (almost black) natural Smoky quartz but usually it tends to be lighter in color. The only way to know for certain whether a point is naturally or artificially radiated is to ask the person where the point originated. Smoky crystal is a good grounding stone. It is also elevating to your mood because it grounds and picks up your negativity. If you use it for this purpose, be sure to cleanse your Smoky quartz frequently.

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.

Quartz Crystal Cluster 00151

This Arkansas quartz crystal cluster has not seen an acid bath and is just as it came out of the mine plenty of dry red clay shows you the material in which it grew. It has Manganese Inclusions and Phantoming. A few areas of Growth Interference on the base.

MANGANESE – Manganese is a dark black mineral often present on Arkansas crystal. A mineral of bonding, Manganese brings people closer together, activating the energies of cooperation in group efforts. Manganese stimulates spontaneity, creativity and enhances positive energy. Manganese produces a grounding effect which can help to balance the emotions and the physical body.

PHANTOM – Phantoms exist within a crystal when a mineral present in the solution has drifted down onto a crystal point during its growth. The mineral is subsequently grown over (trapped inside) with more clear crystal forming around it. Phantoms may be partial or complete. A Phantom will exactly mirror the actual terminating point of a crystal; if it doesn’t, then you can be sure the termination has been polished or altered. Phantoms are good for past-life work. The metaphysical properties of the minerals present are enhanced or amplified by the quartz. The properties will vary depending on what the mineral is (for example chlorite, hematite, etc.).

GROWTH INTERFERENCE – Growth Interference crystals have missing areas in the main point where another mineral was growing during the development of the crystal and then subsequently disappeared. Lots of times it presents with a look like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. Other times in deep square imprints. Because there used to be a mineral present that isn’t there anymore, they look and feel magical to me. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasse. The properties of Growth Interference crystals are a bit like crystal imprints. They represent how we can adapt and grow around a certain situation (or person), and then if the situation no longer serves, it leaves, but not without leaving a mark. I see Imprints as more associated with situations regarding people (crystal on crystal) but because growth interference crystals is caused by non-crystal influences (other minerals), I see Growth Interference as referring more to non-human influences (such as environmental circumstances or health issues, etc.)

MINERAL STILL ATTACHED – Crystals with the mineral and rust still on (and clay in some cases) tell us to \”remember where you come from\”. It speaks to many levels and layers. Where we come from physically, what we\’ve been through, both emotionally and physically, where we come from in our past (this life) and where we come from ultimately (Spirit) etc. These crystals give us pause to reflect on our past and contemplate the residue of the experiences we have accumulated.

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.

01802 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Empathic Arkansas quartz crystal point has suffered some major damage. The entire termination has been knocked off. It has deep Bridges, Growth Interference, Imprints, Rainbows and Fairy Frost. It is a partial point but it still feels good held in the hand (good energy). The top edges are sharp, reminding you that care needs to be taken with fresh wounds.

EMPATHIC – Broken, chipped and otherwise damaged crystals are called Empathic. Empathic crystals bring out compassionate feelings in us. The crystal picks up this empathy and amplifies it. Often the lesson of Empathic crystals is to remember to be compassionate and empathetic to our OWN chips, dings and perceived flaws and to remember we are still beautiful, whole, lovable and worthy.

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. 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. 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. Also called Inner Child.

GROWTH INTERFERENCE – Growth Interference crystals have missing areas in the main point where another mineral was growing during the development of the crystal and then subsequently disappeared. Lots of times it looks like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. There used to be a mineral present that isn’t there anymore, so they sort of look magical to me. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasse. The properties of Growth Interference crystals are a bit like crystal imprints. They represent how we can adapt and grow around a certain situation (or person), and then if the situation no longer serves, it leaves, but not without leaving a mark. Because the interference is caused by non-crystal influences, I see Imprints as more associated with situations regarding people, and Growth Interference as referring more to non-human influences (such as environmental circumstances or health issues, etc.)

IMPRINT – Imprints are indentations or marks left on the sides or faces of a crystal where they grew in close proximity to another crystal. Crystals with Imprints show how something is affected by outside influences (usually other people). The original structure adapts to its environment as outside influences (associations with people) change its shape or form. This allows for growth and change, while still maintaining the crystal’s basic inherent truth and beauty. An Imprint is a type of Key, so the characteristics of Key crystals applies as well.

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. Sometimes Rainbows appear on the surface between two closely connected (fused) crystals. Metaphorically, this can represent how a relationship with a closely-attached-other can bring us Rainbows. Often the fusing of the two crystals produces a surface on which Rainbows like to ride. The relationship with the closely-attached-other creates a Rainbow to be explored and honored while the two are connected.

FAIRY FROST – Fairy Frost consists of fractures and inclusions of air within the crystal. 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.

0030 LARGE ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a slightly Empathic Arkansas quartz crystal point. It seems more damaged due to a large area of Growth Interference. The Growth Interference has some sharp edges on it, so be careful. Areas like this usually mean there has been some challenging (painful) lessons with the Growth Interference (see description below) and reminds us to be mindful of our changes which might be sharp and cutting. It is dense and cloudy (Feminine) and has some orange clay trapped in the crevasses (remember when you come from). There is some dirt still in the Growth Interference. There are some Self Healed areas and some non-self healed.

EMPATHIC – Broken, chipped and otherwise damaged crystals are called Empathic. Empathic crystals bring out compassionate feelings in us. The crystal picks up this empathy and amplifies it. Often the lesson of Empathic crystals is to remember to be compassionate and empathetic to our OWN chips, dings and perceived flaws and to remember we are still beautiful, whole, lovable and worthy.

GROWTH INTERFERENCE – Growth Interference crystals have missing areas in the main point where another mineral was growing during the development of the crystal and then subsequently disappeared. Lots of times it looks like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. There used to be a mineral present that isn’t there anymore, so they sort of look magical to me. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasse. The properties of Growth Interference crystals are a bit like crystal imprints. They represent how we can adapt and grow around a certain situation (or person), and then if the situation no longer serves, it leaves, but not without leaving a mark.

FEMININE – Feminine crystals are dense and milky. The concentration of density in a Feminine crystal varies from nearly opaque fairy frost to solid white, milky quartz. Sometimes a crystal with some clarity (which typically is described as masculine) will still emit a feminine energy. Feminine crystals help us (both men and women) to get in touch with our feminine nature. They have a soft, yet deep, mysterious energy. Yin in nature, Feminine crystals are intuitive, nurturing and receptive.

01441 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This Arkansas quartz crystal point has a lot of Growth Interference on the backside. Growth Interference crystals have missing areas in the main point where another mineral was growing during the development of the crystal and then subsequently disappeared. Lots of times it looks like a buzz saw was taken to the crystal. There used to be a mineral present that isn’t there anymore, so they sort of look magical to me. Sometimes there is a little bit of mineral left in part of the crevasse, as there is on this crystal. The properties of Growth Interference crystals are a bit like crystal imprints. They represent how we can adapt and grow around a certain situation (or person), and then if the situation no longer serves, it leaves, but not without leaving a mark.

01780 ARKANSAS QUARTZ CRYSTAL POINT

This is a slightly Curved Arkansas quartz crystal point, dense with Fairy Frost and with a dark grey Inclusion in the base. It has a few areas of Growth Interference.

CURVED – Curved crystals have a curved shape or have sides that are curved. This happens when the crystal is forming and it is a rare occurrence. Sometimes just the sides are curved; sometimes the whole crystal looks bent. Sometimes they are self-healed into a curved or bent form. Curved crystals have a gentle, yet powerful energy. Curved crystals help promote a flexible attitude.

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.

They become trapped (or Included) within the crystal point during its growth and are called Inclusions or Included crystals. Air and moisture inclusions fall into the category of Fairy Frost, a non-mineral inclusion. The properties of Included crystals will vary, depending on the mineral included within the crystal. The properties of the included mineral will be enhanced and amplified by being trapped within the structure of quartz.

CRYSTAL MANDALAS: (Learn about crystal by COLORING!) Volume 2

This is a coloring book of hand drawn crystal mandalas. The books are split up alphabetically, you can start with whichever book you want! VOLUME 2 consists of E through G (Eight-Sided Face through Growth Interference).

The crystal mandalas came about as a way to make understanding the “anatomy” (form and structure) and “physiology” (function) of quartz crystal both easy and fun. While it IS a coloring book, it is really much more than that. It is a learning book. It is a relaxing book. It is a way to make learning the nuances of quartz crystal easy, fun, and memorable.

Each mandala picture you see here is an individual 11 x 11 design. I have combined 4 on each page just so you can see all the designs in the book (my shopping cart is limited to 5 images). They don’t come like this in the book!

ystalgenn.com. 

The books are all coil bound to lay flat for effortless coloring.

There are two copies of each crystal type so you may color one and leave the other in the book as a reference.

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.
