Elestial crystals can repair damaged cells in the brain and rewire the damaged areas to bring back new life. They are powerful crystals that have been brought into this time, to assist in the mass cleansing, healing, and re-awakening that is currently occurring on this reality plane. Elestials are the great comforters to those who are in the dying process and they assist to release the fear of leaving the physical body in order to identify with the immortality of the soul.


The Elestial crystals are more commonly known as 'skeletal quartz'. This is a special and unusual kind of quartz crystal that is distinguished from other quartz crystals by its shape.

Unlike regular quartz, the Elestials may have several terminated points on a single piece or may be a single terminated piece or may have no terminated apexes. Many of them appear singed and often have a rather smokey color. The faces of these crystals appear etched and/or layered.

Elestials are said to be aligned with angelic vibrations. They have also been used in various ceremonies to reach the ancestral spirits and are connected with the concept of Shiva due to their use in preparing for deep transformation at the core level.

The combination of the highly charged quartz material with the layered etching draws the mind within itself, allowing for the discovery and eventual identification with cosmic consciousness and angelic energies. The Elestials usually emerge into your life during times of deep changes that affect the core of your being and basic essence.

These crystals can be used to overcome emotional burdens, bring the heart and intellect into synchronicity, and look within to find the love that has always been there. They can also assist you in understanding the processes of life and the levels of death. These crystals also stabilize brain wave frequencies and neutralize erratic or confused thought forms.

With the Elestial's connections with deep transformational change, and the comfort they provide to those who are in the dying process, it is easy to see why this form of crystal can be used as an entrance to information concerning past, present and future lives.

They can also be used to facilitate access to shared past or future lives between two or more people. With their effects on the brain, Elestials act as an aid in the comprehension and verbalization of the information which is received. They can be used to assist in accessing information relevant to the Karmic burdens incurred during past lives, and help to recognize and understand the concept of grace or find a more joyful way to cancel the karma.

Using Elestials to access future lives will help you to understand the tasks/lessons that must be accomplished in this life in order to eliminate the need to repeat harsh lessons.

Welcome Everyone

To a blog known as Crystal Magick or Donna's Rocks. My intent is to weekly add a new crystal and it's healing and spiritual attributes. The information that I gather will likely change as I (and my readers) decide what is the most significant or useful. Most information I use will be research gathered from many websites; as well as, "The Crystal Bible" and "Love is in the Earth."

I have been a 'rockhound' for as long as I can remember although I never knew I could even do anything about it. I thought you had to have a formal education or some special intuitive knowledge to even think of working in any way with stones.

Well, the first time, I actually 'felt' a crystal..that is... while holding it, I felt the energy vibrating throughout my body....I knew there was a reason I had an affinity for stones. And that was it. I have been studying and enjoying their presence in my life ever since.

So come along with me on a magickal mystery tour of the most beautiful energetic beings you will ever meet.
