Crystals that promote harmony and understanding in groups

Shop Harmonizer Crystals


harmonizer symbolThe Harmonizers, called the chain and band silicates in scientific journals, contain silicate tetrahedrons bound together in a long chain. They distribute power in a balanced, long-term way, promoting harmony.

For efforts aimed at smoothing a path through difficulties, or aiding in promoting a harmonious relationship within a larger group, like an extended family, then a Harmonizer is an excellent choice.

The Chinese in particular have recognized this inherent power in jade. They have used it for centuries for many efforts that involve promoting peaceful acceptance of situations and ending friction between warring parties. Jade is often the talisman of peace. Its Guardian crystal structure, its Harmonizer earth power, and its green color ray provide a powerful combination for ensuring long-term mutual understanding and cooperation.

Kunzite and Rhodonite are also valuable talismans from this class. They are both powerful Harmonizers. Kunzite is often a light red color and its uses mostly focus on enhancing personal relationships between the sexes. Rhodonite is usually a dark red or scarlet color. As a Harmonizer, it is used to correct misconceptions or to protect people from tricks or deception. Use rhodonite Harmonizers to see behind the masks that other people wear.

The pillar-structure crystals are mostly transparent; the spongelike ones are mostly opaque, as you would expect.

Builder crystals are carbonates—minerals that are rarely in their final forms, but rather in a transitional state. The class also includes the nitrates and borates that are similar in chemistry and earth power. Azurite, malachite, dolomite, and rhodochrosite are all Builders.

These minerals are similar to Transformers in use. The difference is that Builders are more useful when the beginning state is not undesirable. Transformers are more focused on changing an undesirable situation into one that is more desirable.

Builders are used when there is nothing particularly wrong with the current situation, but the desire is to build something new that might somehow have value in our future. They help in development efforts, in learning new skills and knowledge, and in building new relationships.

The Builders are excellent in applications in which something new needs to be made from something old. Woodworkers, stone workers, artists, painters, and others involved in the creative arts benefit from this type of crystals.

The Builder crystals can help artists and crafts persons to focus on the artistic outcome they are trying to achieve.

Many uses of crystals  focus on efforts to achieve a highly desirable goal. Finding our true love, getting our perfect home, or having a financially secure retirement are all dreams that take a great deal of focus and energy to accomplish. The Builder crystals are perfect aids for such efforts.

Crystals that bring out the beauty of life

Shop for Brightener Crystals

brightener symbolThe Brighteners are crystals that form in the halide mineral class.  They are formed by the action of hydrofluoric or hydrochloric acid. When these chemicals come into contact with metals, they form crystals that are often very brightly colored, among the brightest of the mineral kingdom. These crystals and minerals, such as halite and fluorite, are prized for their ability to bring out the beauty in something. 

brighten up your dayThe Brightener crystals are particularly useful for enhancing efforts that focus on the sensual aspects of life in which some aspect has become dull, tarnished, or dingy. A longtime relationship can go stale and become dull with repetition or neglect. A Brightener crystal can help focus efforts to make the old seem new, to add luster where there was the patina of neglect, and to polish up skills, capabilities, and approaches to life and love.

The use of Brighteners should seriously be considered by many seeking a crystal. Many desires are for a brighter future in some way. The Brighteners are very utilitarian crystals. They are the generalist crystals. Their uses are not particularly restricted, as are the uses of many of the other crystals. For example, someone who wants to simply enhance his or her life and have a brighter future could start with a Brightener. Using one that has the Enhancer crystal energy structure like a fluorite would be perfect for a general desire to just have a better life in some unspecified way.


brighten your dayThe Brighteners also have a specific use in helping us see the best life has to offer. Too often we are focused on our problems, afflictions, and illnesses. Life truly is a great adventure, and this planet truly is a wonderful place. We need help sometimes in recognizing the good things we have and in truly appreciating them. The Brighteners are good for our disposition. They add color and zest to life and give it meaning.
