Cracking the Code…Cut Crystal vs. Natural Crystal: Which is better?

This is a question I often get:

Is a cut, man-made crystal point, drilled crystal bead or other shaped form, higher in energy or lower in energy than a natural wand, point or rough crystal?

I do feel natural or rough is inherently more powerful due to a couple of reasons:

  1. The natural direction that the crystal molecules have grown affect the flow of the crystal energy so a natural point will always direct that energy direction (We delve more deeply into this in my Certified Crystal Healer Course. So once a crystal that had a natural point has been cut & polished, it’s harder to determine which direction that energy is actually flowing.
  2. Secondly, the very act of cutting, tumbling or polishing can somewhat dampen the energy of the stone.


But lots of times we need a certain shape to do certain work!

For instance, a point directs energy in a certain direction (even polished ones do this, just not as powerfully as a natural point or wand would). So, perhaps we need […]
