Crystals and Gemstones Questions and Answers

Unread post by dorothybaez » Tue Dec 22, 2009 10:19 am

Wow! Hi, I'm new here....

I had never thought about using a laser pointer on a crystal to amplify its energy, but someone mentioned it to me and I am curious.

Also, what kind of crystals do you have that can cause headaches?

Hello, dorothybaez,

I don't think you can charge a stone with a lazer pointer, not to belittle your concept.

The concept of charging a stone in sunlight or moonlight (which is a New Age, mostly Wiccan custom) is to infuse it with the qualities and energies of the sun or moon. It's almost like living energy. Putting a man-made light source against a crystal isn't going to give it any more oomph than it would to keep your crystal on your TV or next to your lamps and expecting them to fill up with energy.

It's like the difference between Spring Water, Tap Water and Mineral Water.

Besides, from what I understand about that particular practice, you charge your stones with energy by channeling your intent through the stone. You cleanse the stone in sunlight or moonlight so that you can use it again and to clear it of negativity.

RE headache: crystals that have caused headaches in combination,

moldavite+libyan gold tektite+tibetan tektite (3 tektites being used for rapid transformation),

phenacite+herderite (used mainly for amplification, usually affects people that are very sensitive).

Re: charging crystals:

There are products marketed out there from moldavite oil, or charged waters, some using a telescope to amplify light from specific stars.

As for a laser being ineffective, have you tried it? ( LASER= Light Amplifed Solid Energy Radiation) Usually a crystal inside the laser is a ruby or a sapphire, sometimes doped (coated) with another mineral. i find it very effective, charging crystals far beyond what natural energies can do.

Re: cleansing crystals:

I have used streams to cleanse minerals, although sun and moonlight usually dont cleanse enough, burying minerals works well, as well as boiling minerals with hyssop or other cleansing mixtures ( some stones dont work with certain materials, salt corroding (hcl acid) or water soluble crystals like selenite, usually only mainly quartz crystals work with boiling.

I know many Wiccans that say that charging them by natural means is to honor nature/Gaia that brings the energy more than simply the projection of light. I think Wiccans are very in tuned with nature which is why they charge things by moonlight or sunlight. Even if you aren't Wiccan, like Lucylookingskyward said, it is mostly a Wiccan custom and that is the reason they chose to charge it like that and it is also very much about intent so i'm not sure a laser would be the most appropriate way to do that....

Actually, yes I have tried many different ways to charge gemstones, including something similar to your idea, but this was before I'd done more research into gemstone magic. As I said, taking a lazer pointer, which was created in a factory and designed specifically to be an office aid etc is not going to impart any energy onto a crystal than it would if you kept a quartz next to your TV and hoped that the TV would charge your stone. I'm sorry, but I fail to see how lazer charging works.

To address your other points, I have absolutely seen gemestone waters and oils that have been created with specific intent, but this is typically used in combination with herbs and other essential oils.

Thanks lucy, too bad it doesnt work for you, i feel that the abundance of light is more easily shaped and bent into a mineral ( if it wills). I work exclusively with plant and minerals, no animals, but i have no problem with synthetic minerals, as long as they were grown from a seed crystal. (most synthetic minerals are grown from seed crystals in high pressure/heat chemical solutions.) the super 7 crystal is one good example, or theres also the titanium doped quartz, whose name escapes me right now. I recently tested a magnifying glass on identical white quartzes and with the same exposure time the laser exposed quartz was palpably stronger. A laser may have been made in a factory, but it contains a gemstone which is used to amplify the light. Maybe we'll agree to disagree on this one.

Guys, I'm an amateur gemologist and serious rock hound and this is quite interesting...but this conversation is a bit off topic. The stones commonly employed in hoodoo are pyrite and lodestones...minerals used would be assorted salts, alum, saltpeter and magnetic sand.

This is not to say they don't have their magical uses, or that hoodoo practitioners are limited only to the use of curios that were available during the 19th century, but only rarely does one encounter crystals and gemstones in old-style hoodoo rootwork as they simply would not have been available to the original practitioners. They did become available via mail order during the 20th century, and they may be added to mojo bags.

Have fun,

Bluestone was also used in rootwork. In the traditional days it was most often obtained in its commercially available form of copper sulfate. However, it also occurs naturally in the minerals chalcocyanite, chalcanthite, bonattite, and boothite. These are all toxic and carcinogenic, and so have been replaced by modern rootworkers by anil dye, such as Reckett's Blue.

Hope this helps,
