Barriers protect from the undesirable elements of life
With the inner form of a trapezium, a structure with no right angles, a triclinic crystalline structure gives a crystal strength in all directions allowing it to providing barriers to attack from all directions simultaneously. These Barrier crystals are very effective amulets for defending yourself from the misfortunes of this world.
It can be a dangerous world. Disease, war, famine, heartbreak, accidents, and misfortunes of all kinds can await us. Ships founder, cars crash, the flu spreads. The Barrier crystals are useful when you want to protect yourself from such misadventures. They can aid you in your efforts to prevent mishaps and keep away from harm. The minerals that form in the triclinic, Barrier crystal structure are the true protection crystals.
The Barrier crystals are similar to Guardian crystals; the difference is the focus. The Guardians are crystals that help you focus on protecting something you value – an inward focus in a way. In contrast, the Barrier crystals are externally focused – on keeping specific undesirable environments away. Many efforts can be successful using either type of talisman. We can use a Guardian crystal to guard our health, or a specific Barrier crystal to keep a particular disease away. The choice is an individual one that mostly depends on the focus of a specific need or desire. Often these crystals are used together.
However, even alone, the Barrier crystals have incredible abilities to help us focus and amplify our efforts to keep undesirable elements out of our lives. One particularly powerful Barrier, Turquoise, has a long history of success as a protective talisman. The Native American culture has long recognized the power of this mineral and still uses it extensively to protect themselves and their way of life.
