Metaphysical properties: Fairy Stones (Harricana) are naturally smoothed stones composed of Calcium Carbonate and were formed in quaternary deposits left in lakes by receding glaciers, specific to Northern Quebec. Theses concretions only form when the conditions are just right ~ when the water is too high they don't form and when the water is too low they don't form ~ only when the Fairies keep the water at a certain "dancing" level do these stones form beautiful sculptures. The irregular lines on certain stones are traces left by miniature worms, or organic,remains, which were fossilized thousands of years ago. They reveal themselves as textured etchings on an otherwise smooth surface. The Algonquins often carried these treasures as luck charms when they went on fishing or hunting expeditions. The biggest specimens occupied a place of honor in their homes. According to legend, these stones assured protection against bad spirits and brought good health and prosperity to the occupants of the premises. Molded by nature, each stone is one of a kind, making them unique personalities and collection pieces. The Harricana river is named after these stones which resemble biscuits, as in Algonquin "Harricana" means "River of the Biscuits". These stones have a strong link to the nurturing energies of the Earth Mother, they teach concern and care for the planet and all those upon it, and will assist you with any Earth-related work you undertake, as well as grounding, healing and manifesting Earthly abundance.
The following 3 terms all have something to do with electricity/voltage in one form or another ~ and certain crystals have two or more of these properties:
Piezoelectricity refers to a crystal’s ability to produce voltage when pressurized.
Certain crystals will actually produce a voltage when their crystal lattice is under pressure of any sort and that’s why we can use them in different ways in technology. (quartz watches for example)
Some crystals that are known to do this are quartz, topaz + any type of tourmaline.
When I say “quartz”, I mean all types of quartz—not just clear quartz; so that includes amethyst, agate, citrine, rose quartz, etc.
“Pyro” means fire, so it has to do with temperature. Specifically, it’s the ability of a crystal to produce voltage when heated or cooled. (imaging, infrared detection) And quartz, again, has the ability to do this, as does tourmaline…. any kind of tourmaline. Even, indicolite, which is a teal blue or blue tourmaline.
The property of the crystal to actually be able to produce light when it’s struck.
And it doesn’t just produce light on the outside, like friction blowing out a spark, but internally, as well as externally; it produces this flash of light! So it’s not simply explained away as friction.
Crystals that are able to express triboluminescence are: quartz, diamond, and fluorite.
I feel that crystals that have these properties are more powerful than crystals that don’t. And that just simply comes from experience working with them, as well as research and experience of my mentor. They’re all crystals that are relatively easy to find.
If you’ll notice, quartz possesses all three of these properties:
I feel like it’s no coincidence that quartz, in all its many forms--rose quartz, amethyst, citrine, green aventurine, clear quartz— is so accessible to us; both plentiful & relatively low-cost. All the jaspers and all the agates are quartz-based minerals that we can work with as well.
So, to finally answer the question:
In my opinion, quartz (any kind of quartz), is the “A” number one most powerful crystal, and then 2nd would be tourmaline, and then thirdly I’d place topaz.
I feel crystals that have these special properties are the most powerful ones because this allows the crystals to more easily tap into the body’s voltage and polarity.
Again, “what crystal is most powerful” can be up to personal interpretation… it’s a matter of opinion & experiences, and it can be very subjective based on the work that you’ve done and other crystals or minerals that you’ve worked with that you found to be very powerful. Maybe malachite is the most powerful one for you. The best thing to do is to develop a personal relationship, spend time with and really get to “know” your crystals.
Lavender Rose Quartz is a type of rose quartz with a high level of titanium or manganese and is found in Madagascar.
It is a deeply heart-connected stone, opening the heart chakra and filling one with powerful waves of love. At the same time, it is a powerfully spiritual stone, stimulating the crown chakra and opening one’s awareness to the vibrations of the angelic realm. This simultaneous stimulation of the heart and crown chakras creates a deeply satisfying union of those two energy centers.
To mend a broken or traumatized heart consider green crystals such as malachite and green aventurine
Did you know that Kyanite brings ALL the chakras into alignment? The best way to use this stone is in meditation. It can bridge energetic blocks in the aura and emotional blocks between people. It can assist in negotiation/arbitration and other forms of communication between disharmonious people.
Lemurian Quartz Crystals teach oneness, reminding us that while we are all individuals, we are also connected to each other, and that we are all equal in Spirit.
It is believed that there was once an advanced ancient civilization called Lemuria, similar to Atlantis but more spiritually developed and peaceful. As the end of their time on Earth was approaching, the Lemurians programmed these crystals to teach their messages of oneness and healing, including specific information about our planet, how to heal the planet; messages that would be revealed when the energy on Earth was ready to receive them centuries later. According to Katrina Raphaell, the Lemurian Crystals were like “seeds of information” planted or left in one location only; one specific spot, known as the Diamantina Mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Other sources state that Lemurian Seed Crystals are planted in a grid pattern over the surface of the Earth and beyond, to other stars and dimensions. When you connect to a Lemurian Crystal and the energy it contains, you are also connecting to this grid of associated energies from the Earth, the stars, and beyond.
Lemurians can come in all different sizes, but the shape should always be a tapered wand shape—a little wider at the base and more tapered at the end.
There’s a difference between Lemurian Crystals and Lemurian Seed Crystals.
Another characteristic of a Lemurian Crystal will be that it has rough, prominent, horizontal striations on some sides of the shaft, similar to bar codes. But you will not only see them; in order for it to be a true Lemurian, you need to be able to feel them! Run your finger alongside without looking and if you can feel those “ladder rung” striations, then it’s a Lemurian, (if it meets all the other criteria.)
As opposed to Quartz that you program, Lemurian Quartz Crystals are a type of Quartz that you activate. As you meditate, rub your finger along the “bar codes” on the side of a Lemurian Quartz Crystal to activate and download Lemurian knowledge and connect to the Lemurian energy grid.
Keep in mind, it’s said that the more they’re used, the more powerful they become!
Additional information channeled by Katrina Raphaell: “Another piece of information that we received is that if you hold a Lemurian Seed Quartz in your right hand while you walk around and encircle something (a person, an object, your house, etc.) it will create a circle of light protection. These crystals will be attracted to people who will actively assist in anchoring the energies that will aid the planet in these times. They have not yet been fully activated but are helping to set a strong foundation for the original blueprint of love flourishing throughout creation. As we grow in awareness of the primal unity of all things and open our hearts more, the Lemurian Seed Crystal transmission will permeate.
Obsidian is a volcanic glass, born literally of forceful fiery energy.
Birthed in a volcanic eruption when molten lava spews up from a volcano, obsidian flies out & then cools quickly once it touches the cooler land or much cooler water, sometimes forming tiny bubbles within…and cooling much too quickly for its atoms to arrange themselves in the necessary crystalline atomic structure to qualify as a mineral. This makes it a glass & not a crystal.
Obsidian is marked by its absence of crystals. Obsidian can be found in locations which have experienced rhyolitic eruptions. In the U.S. obsidian flows which may be hiked on are found within the calderas of Newberry Volcano and Medicine Lake Volcano in the Cascade Range of western North America, and at Inyo Craters east of the Sierra Nevada in California. Yellowstone National Park has a mountainside containing obsidian located between Mammoth Hot Springs and the Norris Geyser Basin, and deposits can be found in many other western U.S. states including Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Obsidian can also be found in the eastern U.S. states of Virginia, as well as Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
Remember that obsidian is volcanic glass so it has a direct fiery energy to it. Perhaps due to how it originates, generally it’s a pretty powerful stone. Obsidian is great for quick & powerful grounding, cleansing away deep or stubborn negative feelings & when you need POWERFUL psychic protection. However wearing or carrying obsidian for prolonged periods is often discouraged. It is so strong in grounding that it may produce feelings of depression.
Your entire existence…all matter, all life, all experiences–everything owes its existence in the physical world to frequency. Absolutely everything is frequency. You cannot have an experience on this planet without attracting it through frequency. Every emotion, including love and hate tunes into a specific frequency. Health has a frequency. Disease has frequency. Your organs are each tuned to a specific frequency as is your entire body which resonates at its own frequency. You are a symphony of frequencies while you project yourself through this universe and create your physical reality. You are a master of your energy, and thus you are able to control everything you are, everything you do, everything you experience. From the day you are born until the day you die, nothing will ever change the fact that you are both a frequency emitter and receiver in flux with your internal and external environment.
DNA possesses two structural characteristics of fractal antennas, electronic conduction and self symmetry. Electrical conduction allows the movement of electrically charged particles within the body and that flow produces our life force.
Life itself as we know it is inextricably interwoven with geometric forms. The molecules of our DNA, the cornea of our eye, snow flakes, pine cones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, a nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the galaxy we spiral within, the air we breathe, and all life forms as we know them emerge out of timeless geometric codes.
Our human bodies on this planet all developed with a common geometric progression from one to two to four to eight primal cells and beyond.
The universe is more than 99.999% empty space, including our own bodies. All physical things are made of atoms which are mostly empty space. If the nucleus was the size of a marble, the electrons would be specks of dust a half mile away. Every physical thing has that much empty space in it. Inside that empty space is intelligence and frequency.
Almost everywhere we look, the mineral intelligence embodied within crystalline structures follows a geometry,unfaltering in its exactitude. The lattice patterns of crystals all express the principles of mathematical perfection and repetition of a fundamental essence, each with a characteristic spectrum of resonances defined by the angles, lengths and relational orientations of its atomic components.
The human genome is packed with at least four million gene switches that reside in bits of DNA that once were dismissed as “junk” but it turns out that so-called junk DNA plays critical roles in controlling how cells, organs and other tissues behave. The discovery, considered a major medical and scientific breakthrough, has enormous implications for human health and consciousness because many complex diseases appear to be caused by tiny changes in hundreds of gene switches.
As scientists delved into the “junk” — parts of the DNA that are not actual genes containing instructions for proteins — they discovered a complex system that controls genes. At least 80 percent of this DNA is active and needed. Another 15-17 percent has higher functions scientists are still decoding.
Chronic disease occurs when voltage drops below a certain voltage. Cells then don’t have enough energy to work correctly and amount of oxygen in cells drops, switching from aerobic (oxygen- available) metabolism to anaerobic (oxygen diminished) metabolism.
The natural properties of biomolecular structures enables cell components and whole cells to oscillate and interact resonantly with other cells. The cells of the body and cellular components possess the ability to function as electrical resonators.
Professor H. Frohlich has predicted that the fundamental oscillation in cell membranes occurs at frequencies of the order of 100 GHz and that biological systems possess the ability to create and utilize coherent oscillations and respond to external oscillations.
Because cell membranes are composed of dielectric materials a cell will behave as dielectric resonator and will produce an evanescent electromagnetic field in the space around itself. This field does not radiate energy but is capable of interacting with similar systems.
The applications of certain frequencies by frequency generating devices can enhance or interfere with cellular resonance and cellular metabolic and electrical functions. The changes in the degree that water is structured in a cell or in the ECM will affect the configurations and liquid crystal properties of proteins, cell membranes, organelle membranes and DNA.
Healthy tissues have more structured water than unhealthy tissues. Clinicians who recognize this fact have found that certain types of music, toning, chanting, tuning forks, singing bowls, magnetic waters, certain types of frequency generators, phototherapy treatments and homeopathic preparations can improve water structuring in the tissues and health when they are correctly utilized.
There are multiple structures in cells that act as electronic components. If biological tissues and components of biological tissues can receive, transduce and transmit electric, acoustic, magnetic, mechanical and thermal vibrations then this may help explain such phenomena as:
1. Biological reactions to atmospheric electromagnetic and ionic disturbance (sunspots, thunder storms and earthquakes).
2. Biological reactions to the earth’s geomagnetic and Schumann fields.
3. Biological reactions to hands on healing.
4. Biological responses to machines that produce electric, magnetic, photonic and acoustical vibrations (frequency generators).
5. Medical devices that detect,analyze and alter biological electromagnetic fields (the biofield).
6. How techniques such as acupuncture, moxibustion, and laser (photonic) acupuncture can result in healing effects and movement of Qi.
7. How body work such as deep tissue massage, physical therapy, chiropractics can promote healing.
8. Holographic communication.
9. How neural therapy works
10. How electrodermal screening works
11. How some individuals have the capability of feeling, interpreting and correcting alterations in another individual’s biofield
Biological organisms use weak electromagnetic fields (electric and photonic) to communicate with all parts of themselves An electric field can carry information through frequency and amplitude fluctuations.
There is at present on our planet, a great schism in belief regarding resonant frequency. There are those who believe that yes, we all vibrate to the same frequency, whether it is the vibrational rate of the energy points or the vibrational rate of the liver. And many of these are people who believe they have indeed figured out the vibrational rate of the various organs, other bodily parts and etheric fields have invented instruments, made tapes or created machines which will somehow project the correct resonant frequency back in to the body to heal what ails you.
Then, there are others who believe that we are all unique vibratory beings; that the frequencies of our organs and bodily systems may be different and are not the same.
One fact will always remain…we are all energy bounded by frequency. How we interpret ourselves and our universe is guided by the one elusive concept that scientists still find mysterious, yet intriguing. Until that day comes when more research is devoted to how frequencies affect our entire existence, the answers to those mysteries will remain unanswered.

School is starting up again and some children may need a little bit of help in just calming down their energy a little bit.
Kids are way more energetically perceptive than adults.
Children are not as jaded & dulled as some adults. So, they’re much more in tune with energies. Without the adult filters & dulling that many of us have, children can better discern & intuitively know what crystals they should be working with and tapping into or entraining with.
Let them figure it out, let them pick it
Maybe give them a selection of 10 crystals to pick from. It’s not too many, it’s not too little & it actually gives them the power to choose which ones are the best ones for them.
Here are some Crystal Choices for Kids for Calming Energy:
Hematite is a favorite for grounding the child & calming them down for the type of environment of most classrooms. It’s also good for helping a child feel protected, safe in a good grounded environment that’s protected and safe for them.
Another favorite for gentle (not overpowering) protection for kids is black tourmaline. A black tourmaline pendent is a good option if your child is old enough to wear pendants. Or you could give them a smooth polished stone (rough or raw tends to splinter) to carry in their pocket.
Amethyst. Amethyst seems to be an all around favorite, a really good crystal for just about anything. It’s got a really nice energy, gentle but protective as well, so that’s a good one.
Rose quartz is a favorite of kids, both boys and girls. They tend to easily gravitate to it so it’s a natural partnership. So definitely include it in the choice-mix you offer to your child.
When combining crystals CLEAR QUARTZ is a great crystal to include. Its vibrational frequency is relevant to the size, shape and clarity of the individual crystal. It will amplify an aura or energy field when worn or held. AND IT WILL ALSO AMPLIFY THE PROPERTIES OF OTHER CRYSTALS, AS IT HAS THE ABILITY TO ADOPT THE OTHER CRYSTAL’S FREQUENCY.
*****Since Clear Quartz amplifies the frequencies that it comes in contact with, it is important to keep clear crystal quartz (and actually all varieties of quartz) far away from your cell phone, computers, microwaves, etc as it will amplify the EMF (electromagnetic field).
Be aware of your mood, your thoughts and overall attitude, as your quartz will amplify whatever you’re outputting.
Should some crystals and stones not be worn together or used in the same room because they negate each other?
I don’t feel there are any bad combinations of crystals that should never be put together.
I do think that some crystals will cancel each other out ~ not in a bad way at all, but by sending a confusing message to the universe as far as which vibrational frequency that you are trying to entrain with.
For example Carnelian is a stone of energy: it’s a stone that really helps to boost energy.
Another stone is Blue Lace Agate. Blue Lace Agate does the exact opposite of what carnelian does. It calms energy down.
So if you were to put these two stones together in a combination of any kind, for instance a mojo bag or a crystal grid, that would be really confusing!
You’ve got to ask yourself what are you trying to achieve?
Do you really want to calm things down or do you want to boost the energy? This might be a combination that would cancel each other out.
It’s not the same for everyone, but for most people these are the types of energies that one will get from Carnelian and Blue Lace Agate. If these are the types of energies you’re getting from the stones, putting them together is going to cancel them out.
Yes, there are combinations that will negate each other, but I don’t think that there are any bad combinations.
