What is a Geode?
A geode is simply a rock with a hollow centre. Crystals grow toward the hollow middle often resulting in beautiful structures. The more common crystal varieties forming geodes include amethyst, calcite, citrine and quartz.
Said to be associated with the star sign Virgo, Crystal Healers believe geodes help with the following healing qualities in addition to those listed for the specific crystal variety (eg amethyst see other pages on this site or The Crystal Healer for more information); astral travel, communication, decisions, groups, healing anything that can be placed inside, mathematics, meditation, protection for homes, spiritual growth, teaching, changing/clearing/cleansing the energies in a room. As well as your private spaces they're great in living rooms, offices, meeting rooms or any communal area.
Geodes link to both the crown and base chakras and can bring you feelings of connectedness, peace, balance and oneness.
Amethyst crystal geodes will energise the room they're in. Everyone will feel more relaxed and at home. Place one in your living room or any communal area.
You can cleanse crystals by placing them inside a geode and simply allowing the crystalline energies of the geode to cleanse and clear your crystals. It can be like a holiday for your crystals. And the common question of how long you should leave them is a little open ended. They're just like people, like you and me - how long do you need to refresh and revitalise? For one person it might be a day off or a weekend, another a week or fortnight in the sun, a month in the country or a gap year. Once you are used to working with crystals they will tell you all you need to know and will let you know when they're ready and willing to go back to work.
Please note that while the descriptions of the properties, qualities and meanings of some crystals refer to healing benefits, they are not intended to replace diagnosis of illness or ailments, or healing or medicine and do not imply a Guarantee of effect. Crystals and crystal healing may offer a treatment which is supportive of your healing, they do not offer a direct cure to physical ailments as they work on the vital energy level. Always consult your doctor or other health professional in the case of illness. Although there is little scientific evidence of the efficacy of crystal healing, there has been very little research conducted and in our experience many people benefit from the energy of crystals.
