General Crystals Minerals Gemstones Questions and Answers

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.

dorothybaez,

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.

Agreed.

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,

Michelle

Hello,
I really interested in learning crystals. How do I pick one? Or do the crystal pick you?

Hello, Spiritual Serenity,

If you visit the Lucky Mojo shop, they will help you with this query.

Personally, I trust all Lucky Mojo products and have bought them with complete confidence.

If you are asking us to help you purchase a product from a store other than Lucky Mojo, then this is not the correct forum to post such a question.

Wishing you the best

Take care

Be sure to check out the Book Section, as Lucky Mojo carries some great books that can help you get started. Two of the books that I can think of off the top of my head are:

The Book of Stones by Simmons & Ahsian
Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Crystal, Gem & Metal Magic by Scott Cunningham

Also, be sure to check out their Mineral Section to see the various stones that they offer.

Help! I need someone's advice or anything in this matter...
I've been working on my ex and seems like my candles are working and it's getting thru but he recently came back from a Mexico trip, which he brought me an Amethyst stone, and I'm sure he got one for himself too, well he told me to research the stone. I did which it says it protects u from spiritual, psychic work....
Does this mean it will protect him from my work if he has one? Does anyone know anything about this stones? Seems like my work is affecting him though... So not sure if this stone is that powerful, he gave me one too, which I take it as a sign that he misses me....


Thank u in advance!

Hello, Luckyyone,

This is true from what I know about Amethyst. BUT it MUST be on your person!

You might want to try and get him to give it to you. Tell him you want to clean it.

That's all I know to suggest

Sorry

Hello, Luckyyone ,

If it's not on his person, then he's not a protected.

I was always taught that it had to be touching your skin (as in Jewelry, mojo hands, etc.

Take care

I was interested to see what are some of your favorite crystals to use? Crystals carry a lot of magic and I think they can be helpful if you're needing to be discreet.

My absolute favorite is amethyst. I sleep with it every night for protection while I'm sleeping and to help with dream recall. It also soothes my anxiety if I am feeling overwhelmed. I also like selenite as its energy is very calming as well and it gives me an overall sense of balance and clarity. If you are in need of some luck or help with opportunities, I suggest carrying green aventurine with you. I used it in a mojo bag & I had it on me when I submitted my resume. I got a call back right away. I had it with me on the interview and I was hired on the spot!

I work with crystals every day, and I make jewelry with them so I kinda have a good relationship with them.

My all time fave is jet (I live in England and have found many pieces when beachcombing Whitby beaches, and they are the best I've had!) as I find it very calming, protective and empowering.

The only one that I struggle with is rainbow moonstone...I can't wear that sucker for more than half hour otherwise I'm crying, confused and very self-loathing. I know it's good for the emotional side, but it brings up so much deeply buried **** that I end up a mess. Such a pity because it's my fave to look at due to the gorgeous play of colour. :(

I am lost and before I posted here I tried to look up where I could find the information but couldn't. Can someone tell me the magickal correspondences and uses of magnesium? Also, iron. Or if there is a thread or link that will give me the info?

Hello firerobinc0

I am not aware of uses for magnesium in hoodoo. As for Iron the most common use of this is in lodestones which are composed of iron that has become magnetic. These are used to attract what you desire. You can read about them here (http://www.herb-magic.com/lodestone-small-single.html).

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,

Rev Jon SG

Hello

I use crystals in my work. When I do any kind of work I use crystals.

The crystal magnify whatever I'm doing. When I do readings I hold them. Their energy opens me up and the messages become loud and clear.
I let my crystals get moon and sun light. I clean them with sage and running water.

Since reading Lucky Mojo forums and the many articles that are found here. I've learned adding crystals are all good in root work. It's the energy that brings our work to life. The more energy the higher probability of successful work.

For instance, speaking of love... try surrounding your candles and herbs with Rose Quartz, it will make your love work stronger.

Like I said, adding crystals to your work, won't hurt. It will make it better... if you ask me lol.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
