A Rainbow inside a crystal is caused by light being refracted by the prismatic effect of a crack, fissure or inclusion. The refraction is often temperature sensitive causing the rainbow to appear and disappear. In woo-woo terms, these crystals exhibit the closest manifestation of pure white light that can be witnessed on the physical plane. Rainbow crystals are used during meditation to enfold you in pure white light and can bring depth and clarity to your dreams, help manifest wishes, and overcome negativity. They inspire pure joy and help you to love life in the present moment!

Record Keeper

Record Keepers are crystals which have small triangular markings on their faces or sides. It is believed that they contain ancient wisdom programmed by both the Atlanteans and the Lemurians in order to pass on knowledge to us as we are capable of receiving it. A pure heart is required to be open to receive the information encoded within them. These markings are often difficult to see because they are faint and can be either raised, incised or watermarks. Hold the crystal in the light and turn it different ways to catch the reflection in order to see them easier.
