Crystal Generators are crystals terminating in six faces (facets). Generators are sometimes also called Projector Crystals. Crystal Generators can vary greatly in size but are all powerful regardless.
Generators do exactly what their name implies … they generate and project energy and are also great for re-energizing or recharging other crystals and stones.
They are often placed in the center of a Meditation Circle during group meditations, and in the center of Healing Shares as well. These crystals are favorites for alternative healing procedures, generating and directing energy in precise regular pulses and patterns, especially when programmed for specific functions.
Like all stones, each Generator is a distinct individual with its own lifetime of experience and unique frequency transmissions. It can contain phantoms, rainbows, inclusions, or it can be perfectly clear. A Generator can be any member of the Quartz family so long as all of its six sides terminate in one regular 6-sided point. The more perfect the geometry of the crystals the more energy generated.
Generators are extraordinary meditation tools, helping you gather and focus your concentration and energy, then amplify and project it in the desired direction. They are also good instructors while you are learning not to damage anything when focusing and using energy and power responsibly. Hold or carry a Generator anytime you need to feel Balanced.
Last night during my show, Spiritual Insight Show, I mentioned the Crystal/Gemstone/Mineral for the week. For those who missed the show, here are the details of the Spirit, Cactus or Porcupine Quartz.

Spirit Quartz is an unusual member of the Quartz family – a community within a stone. Its core, a larger, candle-shaped crystal with a faceted termination point, is encrusted with hundreds of smaller crystal termination points. It is found only in the Magaliesberg Mountain region of South Africa, first appearing around 2001. Most Spirit Quartz is Amethyst, though Citrine, Smokey, and White Quartz are also mined.
In the metaphysical world, Spirit Quartz is a crystal of Harmony and Alignment. It takes all the crystal energies of the main stone and amplifies them over and over again in all the tiny points, each reflecting light back and forth to one another so all can bathe in the combined radiance of the whole. In the Book of Stones, Naisha Ahsian describes this crystal as “a hundred-voice choir singing in harmony.” Its resonance is spiritually uplifting, radiating high-vibrational energy in all directions, and is a perfect ally in aligning the aura, chakras, meridians and the physical body, as well as carrying the gifts of Spirit out into the world.
There are four natural forms of Spirit Quartz – Amethyst, Citrine, Smokey, and White Quartz, sometimes occurring in combinations within a specimen.
Amethyst Spirit Quartz varies in shades of pale lilac to deep purple and activates the higher Crown chakras, bringing in spiritual information and providing multi-dimensional healing. It is very cleansing to the aura and can dispel negative attachments and entities, and repair holes to the etheric body. It is a compassionate stone facilitating transition to other states of being. It assists a soul facing death and provides immense support throughout a terminal illness, and can be an effective tool for spirit release, attracting guides for the journey. The Amethyst color brings passion and imagination, emotion and logic. It stimulates creativity and is particularly helpful in artistic endeavors. Amethyst is the traditional birthstone of those born in February, and is associated with the sign of Pisces. It utilizes Fire Energy, and may be used in devotions to Minerva, the Etruscan Goddess of Wisdom, Sophia, the Goddess of Wisdom, and Ixcuiname, the Mayan Goddess of the Four Ages of Women.
Citrine Spirit Quartz varies in shades of pale yellow to gold, sometimes with a rich orange or brownish cast. It activates the Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras, aligning personal will with Divine Will, and allowing for a more focused manifestation of one’s chosen goals and those of the Higher Self. This stone purifies intent, and increases the sense of self-worth and empowerment, giving access to true abundance while releasing attachments to material things. It is particularly useful in harmonizing group efforts and focusing power for a collective cause, and is a marvelous stone for conflict-resolution and in seeking, or granting, forgiveness. Gold crystals provide the simple pleasures of life – cheerfulness and contentment, enthusiasm and success. Citrine Spirit Quartz is associated with the sign of Cancer, and utilizes Fire Energy. It may be used in devotions to Grian, the Irish Sun Fairy Queen, Ixcuiname, the Mayan Goddess of the Four Ages of Women, and Demeter, the Greek Goddess of Abundance.
Smoky Spirit Quartz varies in shades of brown to grayish-brown, and activates the Base chakra, aligning it with the Third Eye for grounding spiritual insight into everyday life. It is a stone of protection, cleansing, and integration, highly beneficial in any work that involves visiting the underworld or exploring the subconscious mind. It assists in conveying a soul safely into the next world, cleansing the subtle bodies and removing karmic and emotional debris to ensure a good rebirth. It is a marvelous tool for releasing deeply held emotions, traumatic memories or states of dis-ease, including those passed down the ancestral line. This stone also stabilizes and purifies environmental imbalances and pollution. Brown crystals promote security and stability, connecting to the natural earth for regaining composure. Smoky Spirit Quartz utilizes Wood Energy, and may be used in devotions to Ixcuiname, the Mayan Goddess of the Four Ages of Women, and Gaia, the Greek Earth Mother Goddess.
White Spirit Quartz (pictured above) varies from clear to opaque white, and is sometimes called Fairy Spirit Quartz. It activates all energy centers and is most resonant with the physical body, especially for support of the physical healing process and in revitalizing energy levels. It clears and cleanses blockages in the system, and attunes the aura for both healing and evolution. It is a helpful tool of practitioners for extending the effects of healing work, and is beneficial for use in stone layouts. White crystals represent natural cycles, birth, and regeneration – the feminine gender, manifested as the Goddess in many cultures.
It is the color of cleanliness, purity, and unity. White Spirit Quartz utilizes Metal Energy, and may be used in devotions to Allat, the Arabian Moon Goddess, and Ixcuiname, the Mayan Goddess of the Four Ages of Women.
There are also varieties that have been chemically treated for color, which in no way diminishes the energies of the crystal.
Aqua Aura Spirit Quartz varies from sky blue to aqua, and is created by a process where pure Gold is bonded to the surfaces of Clear Spirit Quartz. It stimulates the Throat chakra and encourages openness, expression of affection and appreciation of others. It expands the boundaries of possibility and helps dissolve limitations. A wonderful stone to help families understand one another, it is also beneficial in the workplace, and assists in manifesting one’s highest potential in life. Light Blue crystals help in developing patience, reconciling differences, and in seeking forgiveness. Aqua Aura Spirit Quartz utilizes Water Energy and may be used in devotions to Ixcuiname, the Mayan Goddess of the Four Ages of Women.
Flame Aura Spirit Quartz produces a rainbow of bright colors, created from Titanium (Rutile) and niobium alchemically coated onto Quartz. It is a crystal of initiation, capable of a profound multi-dimensional energy shift, drawing kundalini energy up the spine and through the subtle bodies. It helps provide what each soul needs for its evolution, and is an intuitive ally in reading people at an energetic and subtle level. Flame Aura Spirit Quartz utilizes Fire Energy and may be used in devotions to Ixcuiname, the Mayan Goddess of the Four Ages of Women.
Spirit Quartz is an excellent crystal for promoting any collective activity, whether socially or at work, in the community or for sporting events. It encourages team building and brings productive harmony to group efforts. It is particularly useful for those in service-based occupations, such as health care or teaching to maintain focus on the care and not be worn down by administrative or budgetary restraints.
Spirit Quartz facilitates bonding in home environments, especially when a new member joins the family, such as a young relative, foster or adopted child. It stimulates healing and peace in homes with fierce sibling rivalries, and reduces resentment and jealousy when step-families merge or when older family members must give up their home to move in.
Spirit Quartz is a comforting stone, assisting at death/transition to guide the soul through the dimensions of the afterlife and into the hands of those waiting to welcome them home. It also provides solace and understanding for those left behind.
Spirit Quartz cleanses other stones and enhances their energy in healing layouts. It harmonizes well with all members of the Quartz and Beryl families, as well as Moldavite which speeds and increases the Spirit Quartz’s effects.
Sometimes a stone or crystal just suddenly breaks. It can upset you especially when it is one of your most favorite pieces. Let’s look at the energy aspect of what has happened.
Think of it as the singer and wine glass shattering scenario. What causes that to happen? The frequencies of the wine glass were perfectly pitched or perfectly oscillated with the sound frequency of the note that the singer was holding. This created a third resonant field of greater energy and that cracks the wine glass.
For you science buffs: In physics, resonance is the tendency of a system to oscillate with greater amplitude at some frequencies than at others. Frequencies at which the response amplitude is a relative maximum are known as the system’s resonant frequencies, or resonance frequencies. At these frequencies, even small periodic driving forces can produce large amplitude oscillations, because the system stores vibrational energy. Resonance occurs when a system is able to store and easily transfer energy between two or more different storage modes (such as kinetic energy and potential energy in the case of a pendulum).
One familiar example is a playground swing, which acts as a pendulum. Pushing a person in a swing in time with the natural interval of the swing (its resonant frequency) will make the swing go higher and higher (maximum amplitude), while attempts to push the swing at a faster or slower tempo will result in smaller arcs. This is because the energy the swing absorbs is maximized when the pushes are “in phase” with the swing’s natural oscillations, while some of the swing’s energy is actually extracted by the opposing force of the pushes when they are not.
Resonance occurs widely in nature, and is exploited in many man made devices. It is the mechanism by which virtually all sinusoidal waves and vibrations are generated. Many sounds we hear, such as when hard objects of metal, glass, or wood are struck, are caused by brief resonant vibrations in the object. Light and other short wavelength electromagnetic radiation is produced by resonance on an atomic scale, such as electrons in atoms.
Other examples are:
Timekeeping mechanisms of modern clocks and watches, e.g., the balance wheel in a mechanical watch and the quartz crystal in a quartz watch
Tidal resonance of the Bay of Fundy
Acoustic resonances of musical instruments and human vocal cords
Shattering of a crystal wineglass when exposed to a musical tone of the right pitch (its resonant frequency)
Electrical resonance of tuned circuits in radios and TVs that allow radio frequencies to be selectively received
Creation of coherent light by optical resonance in a laser cavity
Orbital resonance as exemplified by some moons of the solar system’s gas giants
Material resonances in atomic scale are the basis of several spectroscopic techniques that are used in condensed matter physics
Electron spin resonance
Nuclear magnetic resonance
The same scenario may be taking place when our crystal cracks. The vibrational frequency of the crystal may be synchronizing with a frequency in its environment which causes the crystal to crack and/or break.
Keep in mind…crystals do not die or stop working just because they’ve cracked or broken. Please continue to work with them. They are still there for you. Now, the intense energy that caused the stone or crystal to crack, whether a physical impact or energetic impact was intense (especially if we’re talking about a quartz crystal), and that may have temporarily altered the crystal’s normal vibrational frequency.
It isn’t just your personal energy that caused the crystal to break or crack. Pay attention to where you were when the crystal cracked or broke. Just as we can feel and absorb other people’s energies, so do the crystal and gemstones we may have on our body or near us.
You will want to give that crystal some time away from your close energy contact. Especially if you carried the crystal in your pocket, wore it as jewelry or had it anywhere else on your body. Give the crystal a nice cleansing. After about 6 weeks, it should be ready to close to you again.
How do you cleanse the crystal? Thank the crystal for working with you. Then since there was a high amplitude energy that caused it to crack, you can do a good crystal re-tuning by burying it in Mother Earth. You can bury it in an indoor potted plant or bury it outside. If you bury it outside, be sure to mark the spot well so you can find it again!
What if this happens more than once with a particular crystal? Well, in that case, its work with you may be done. Perhaps this is a sign to gift this piece on to whoever needs it more than you. The crystal’s work isn’t completed…. perhaps it just needs to move on to someone else.
