Dendritic Quartz / Dendritic Agate

Also called Dendritic Opal. Dendritic Quartz lights up your pathway to anything you’re seeking, organising the web of entanglements that conspire to create your reality for you. While some associate its moss or tree-like Dendrites with connection to the Earth and Elemental kingdoms, I also feel it connects you with your own innate power; The power of a focused mind, whose intent ripples out creating a magnetic web of attraction. The Quartz stores and amplifies the intent contained within, so Dendritic Quartz is essentially a snap shot of your ideas and intent expanding out into the Universe, attracting all the pieces for your joyous creation!

Desert Rose

Diamond reflects your will and power aspects of the Divine, and it’s a powerful healer when used by someone whose vibrations are resonating at its intensity. It is a catalyst for alignment with your higher self and it strengthens your will power and control over your physical desires. It breaks up blockages in your Crown Chakra and enhances abundance, trust, faithfulness, innocence and purity. When it is set with other stones it heightens the healing capacity of those stones. It signifies courage and it is said that a Diamond should never be lent to another – and if taken by fraud or force or coveted, instant karma will ensue. Sadly, despite its beautiful properties, Diamond has become one of the most blood-laden of all crystals. Like many other crystals with high market value and widespread popularity, its mining and sale is commonly steeped in controversy. Please be sure to cleanse and clear your stone thoroughly and ask for all karma associated with the stone to be released before using it in any way.

DT (Double Terminated)

Double Terminated (DT) crystals are naturally terminated (have a point) at both ends. DTs promote psychic ability, dream recall and are balance out your body, mind and spirit. They allow you easier access to meditative states, the spirit world and to your own inner feelings and creativity. Because they are uniquely able to emit energy from both ends, they are useful in sharing energy and in strengthening your aura. Double Terminated crystals have the capacity to draw energy in as well as emanate out energy from either end of the crystal. By uniting the energies together in the central body of the crystal, a Double Terminated crystal can then project that unified essence from both ends. This blending of forces allows the crystal to be used in special meditations and advanced telepathic practices. DTs are complete unto themselves. They know no limits or boundaries and have grown to completion on each of their polar ends. They teach you that it is possible to be balanced in your dual expression of spirit and matter. DTs exude a sense of personal unity and are ideal to use with people who are mentally or emotionally unbalanced.
