I received the most AMAZING parcel from a friend yesterday ( actually from Arizona, Val ). This is the most exquisite piece of Green flourite I have ever owned; both obelisk and palm stone ( probably larger, as I cant' close my fingers around it ) which is also pointed.
Obelisks are essential as part of a crystal grid or crystal healing practices. Ancient Egypgians used both obelisks and pyramids for energy transfers. While I love raw, the beauty of pointed crystals ( as well as orbs ) is the energy directive. In both pyramids and obelisks, you can write on a piece of paper, stick that paper under the base of either, and the energy of that intention will be directed straight up.
A pyramid ( such as my almandine garnet pictured here ) can be used to draw negative energy away from the chakras, and even open up blockages. Using a particular gemstone pyramid ( such as the almandine garnet ) utilizes the properties of that pyramid in the process. In this case, the almandine garnet is being used in a ritual to connect with my ancestors following the moon cycle.
Upon the arrival of the flourite obelisk, I immediately felt a deep kinship. Green flourite is a “growth crystal”
[ it's actually a mineral form of calcium fluoride ] - a powerful conduit of the earth’s Life Force of birth, development, and creation, and of the power of nature’s constant renewal. It is a potent aid in nurturing, whether of fledgling family relationships or a new business venture. Inclusion
would be an understatement for this piece; as it's brilliantly filled with growth ( lower right hand corner of the image for just a sample ). It also has several cleavage faults and sheaves. It's just a beautiful specimen.
Also was his face; that of a distant ancestor resting in the light of the earth-formed mineral around him. Of course some will say it's a trick of the light; others will imply I'm just crazy. I'll take being crazy enough to recognize miracles and wonders all day. I would kinda be lost without them.
