Metamorphosis Quartz by Bob Jackson

Posted by on Feb 17, 2017 in Crystals and Minerals |

  Metamorphosis Quartz by Bob Jackson This clear to opaque milky quartz has been available for several years. In review, it is the precursor for “Oro Verde” (after irradiation with 0.3 MEV gamma) utilized for spheres due to opalescence somewhat like the Girasol opal from Madagascar and more recently, shaped into cabochons to achieve possible asterism/cateye effects (about 5% of the mine runs material). The designation “Meta quartz” was originally coined because of the change due to irradiation. Subsequently, it was observed that the rough material would slowly change to smoky or rose quartz over a period of 306 months upon exposure to sunlight or incandescent light. I continue...

Posted by on Jul 13, 2016 in Melody's Corner |

Reprinted with permission from This year (Feb 2014) at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show, I had the pleasure of meeting Melody, the author of Love is in the Earth. Melody is a world-renowned scientist and an authority on working with the energies of the crystal and mineral kingdom. She was at the show to share her latest book, “Love is in the Earth: a Passport to Crystals”, which is now available for purchase on our website. It just so happened that I was alone with Melody in the room, so I jumped at the opportunity to ask her a few questions: Heather Askinosie: Melody, what do you...

The Self-Love Crystal Healing Array by Karen Nagle

Posted by on Feb 23, 2016 in Laying on of Stones |

Self-love is more valuable than the largest mansion or the slickest sports car. In fact, it is one of the most valuable “things” that exists. It is searched for high and low, and it’s so called substitutes come in a myriad of forms, though never satisfying the need that the true treasure brings. Unfortunately, if you don’t have self-love, it is very difficult to admit, no substitute will ever work, and it seems near impossible to create for yourself. This may be confusing to the mind searching for it, but a very good reason for this exists, that explains the elusiveness of this treasure. We are incapable of generating...

Coloration of Minerals by Bob Jackson

Posted by on Aug 17, 2013 in Crystals and Minerals |

In one of the many ongoing discourses, agreed-on primary distinguished physical characteristic of minerals are color, hardness, density (specific gravity), fracture/cleavage, chemical composition and morphology (crystal structure). There are additional physical attributes, of varying degrees of subtlety, which occasionally attract attention depending on availability of, and accessibility to expensive instrumentation (to the person who  possesses a hammer, everything appears to be nails). We will briefly look into  coloration, having previously considered hardness. Color in minerals is primarily caused by: principal cation constituents or by trace cationic impurities (cation means positively charged ion) or crystal structures distortion (e.g. smokey quartz) Absence of color is caused, more usually, by structural factors....

The ” Mobility” configuration was gifted to me by Bob Jackson in a dream on February 9th 1998   The “Mobility” configuration is established by placing a quartz sphere on the heart side palm and a quartz crystal point with termination pointing downwards in the opposite palm, then place single terminated crystal points in the pattern in the above figure, ( Mobility image) with “at least” three single terminated crystals points, with the termination’s pointed towards third eye chakra, being placed from the base chakra and stopping at the area of the heart chakra. The number of crystals utilized is left to the intuition of the practitioner. After centering,...
