“PLATITUDE, n. The fundamental element and special glory of popular literature. A thought that snores in words that smoke. The wisdom of a million fools in the diction of a dullard. A fossil sentiment in artificial rock. All that is mortal of a departed truth. A jelly-fish withering on the shore of the sea of thought. A desiccated epigram.”
Ambrose Bierce

Beauty Transformed

“As you simplify your life,
the laws of the universe will be simpler;
solitude will not be solitude,
poverty will not be poverty,
nor weakness weakness.”

Henry David Thoreau

CHAROITE… “stimulates the ability to integrate rapidly changing energies, which can be the result of shocking circumstances on earth or effects from off-planet energies such as astrological cycles and discoveries in astronomy… Charoite contains power in subtlety, the majesty of being able to evoke increasing levels of awareness based on being able to integrate increasing complexity of insight. While it encourages depth of surrender and search, it opens to larger fields of beauty and truth. Charoite speaks naturally of bridging what is viewed as wild and unattainable, even threatening in its prospect, with what is most real, most whole and most visceral within the self. Therefore, it occupies a position of being on the edge where diverse realities meet, share and integrate to create new species of thought, artistic expression, and eras of human endeavor.” Crystalline Communion 2000, Collen Marquist & Jack Frasl

Scientific Properties: Charoite is an unusual mineral of quite rare occurrence. It is found today only in one location, along the Chary River at Aldan in Russia. It formed from an alteration of limestones by the close presences of an alkali-rich nephline syenite intrusion. It is the heat, the pressure and more importantly, the infusion of unique chemicals into the rock that is responsible for the transformations into completely new minerals such as charoite. Why charoite has not been found in other locations is not fully understood, but is is probably due to a combination of a chemically unique limestone reacting with a chemically unique intrusion and subjected to unique physical conditions.

Mystical Properties: Charoite is often called a ‘stone of transformation’ as well as a stone of power. In particular it transforms negative emotions such as anger and fear into positive feelings. As a part of the transformation process it allows release of those negative emotions, so one can change and move forward. More Properties

Shining Through

“Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth,
so virtue appears from good deeds,
and wisdom appears from a
pure and peaceful mind.
To walk safely through the maze of human life,
one needs the light of wisdom and
the guidance of virtue.”


Scientific Properties: Quartz is composed of silicon dioxide and is one of the most abundant minerals in the world. Sand is mostly comprised of quartz; even the dust in the air is high in quartz content. The most well-known form of quartz is clear rock crystal, and it may be found throughout the world. The largest single quartz crystal recorded was approximately 20 feet long and weighed more than 48 tons.

Yes, crystals really do vibrate! Quartz is both piezoelectric and pyroelectric. It is used as oscillators and filters…from radios and televisions, telephone services to high-tech, industrial, and medical equipment…quartz crystal is essential! Crystals are also now grown in the laboratory using a hydrothermal process, because this process yields pure, flawless crystal for oscillator plates. More Quartz

Metaphysical Properties: “Clear quartz resonates to qualities of loyalty, fealty, equality and “one for all, all for one.” Understanding the properties of clear quartz brings new light to the Biblical injunction, the meek shall inherit the earth. Those who receive and let flow through them the Divine Light in complete and utter humility will flourish on earth, and will literally glow with goodness and light.” Crystalline Communion 2000, Collen Marquist & Jack Frasl

Quartz is ‘the most powerful, versatile multi-purpose healing stone, particular regarding self-esteem, and healing the wounds of a neglectful or abusive childhood. This stone will not allow you to wallow in self-pity over that which you can not change! This stone amplifies prayers, wishes and positive visualizations. Keeps you in touch with your spiritual side, and reminds you that you are a spritual being, having a human experience.’ More Meanings
