Elestial Quartz, sometimes referred to as Alligator Quartz, represents the four elements of air, earth, fire and water.
Earth ~ a quartz mineral comprised of silica and oxygen. It is naturally amplifies its environment and is one of the most powerful healing tools. These healing tools choose their owners more than any other stones in the mineral kingdom.
Air ~ While a stone is forming air occasionally becomes trapped within the feed [or mother] solution. The mineral hardens and traps the air pocket within the layers of quartz. Through time, and movement, the air is dislodged but the “pocket” remains within the mineral itself.
Fire ~ Quartz that has been heated or irradiated by the earth is called Smokey Quartz. The grey to dark brown coloration identifies this stone. It is a powerful stone of release, clearing and protection.
Water ~ Growing in a more watery environment than normal quartz, Elestials will many times encase moss or other cave growth.

Composed of Beryllium, Aluminum, and Chromium Silicate, these Beryls exhibit a pure, rich green color with a slight bluish tinge, to slightly yellowish colorations. While the clear, or gem quality, stones are more powerful, all Emeralds will aid the unconscious in bringing abundance into your life. The darker colored stones have a greater ability to ground this newly held abundance.
Emeralds feed and balance the chakras, bringing health to the body systems and also strongly support the heart, in both the healing and energetic aid of the heart, and in promoting love and the security of love. In the past this beautiful stone was worn by brides to secure faithfulness and longevity in the marriage vows. Emeralds can stimulate love and trust in love for its wearer. And in the past it was thought that this stone would change color or break if a lover was unfaithful.
While all stones work in conjunction with the wearers participation, Emerald works from the Divine level, seeking your cooperation in assuming responsibility for your co-creative part in the Divine Plan. As it helps your movement through the various new levels of transformation you will want to take short breaks from using this stone to rest and integrate the personal processes.
This is also an excellent stone to use as an elixir for confidence in your abilities, to strengthen and align the body with Light, and to build new cell walls that are strong enough to contain the flow of these new accelerated energies you are forming together.
Quartz reflects the ideal, spiral crystalline Divine Plan of how evolution has adapted to Earth, her people and her potentials. It contains the seeds of Earth’s growth and spiritual evolution. Even if Quartz is found on other planets, for us, it perfectly mirrors that of DNA found in everything alive on Earth. It is representational of the basic form that Light takes when becoming physical matter. It is our reflection and mirror; it is our history and future records of all we are about to do. It reminds us to accept and become the Divine’s perfect vehicle to express Light as Love.
Quartz is also reflective of all the many variations of how humanity has combined with itself to create new thought, ideas, knowledge and truth into our ever changing perspective of who we are and why we are here in the Universal line-up.
Faden Quartz grows as flattened quartz, known as tabular crystals. It almost always grows with a double termination, or completed points on both its ends. Fadens have a white line or “thread” running through them. This “thread” occurs when the cavity the crystal is growing in slowly opens or stretches due to natural earth movement of the tectonic plates; the type that create earthquakes and mountains. During this movement the crystal is broken and then heals as its growth continues.
These crystals mirror our natural ability to self-heal and grow from our many life experiences. They show us that difficult situations are our teachers not our enemies. They show us that we are more beautiful and interesting from these many experiences rather than disfigured by them. They reflect the many choices we have been given to creatively put ourselves back together… to Re-Create ourselves as the Divine’s Image at each segment of our lives. Rather than resentment we can create love, rather than hatred we can create forgiveness. These crystals help remember to put ourselves back together after any difficult situation and continue on with our goals of who we are meant to be. Life’s circumstances may move us and create changes, but our deep internal strength, our Higher Self, is really running the show when we are able to listen deeply to who we are meant to be.
Faden Quartz reminds us of how amazing we are and how amazing our journey can be when we accept our life and ourselves.
