The Elestial habit of quartz is a unique and highly sought-after form of quartz crystal that is characterized by its intricate and complex structure. The word "Elestial" comes from the Greek word for "elevated," which refers to the crystal's multi-layered structure.
Elestial quartz crystals are typically smoky or clear and can range in size from small clusters to large individual specimens. The crystal's distinctive features include multiple terminations, or points, that are interconnected by a complex network of ridges and grooves. The resulting structure often appears to be "carved" or "etched" into the surface of the crystal, giving it a highly textured and three-dimensional appearance.
The Elestial habit of quartz is believed to be formed by a combination of rapid crystal growth and subsequent overgrowth, followed by partial dissolution and regrowth. The resulting crystal structure is highly intricate and complex, with multiple layers of growth and dissolution evident in the crystal's structure.
In metaphysical communities, Elestial quartz is believed to have a number of spiritual properties. It is said to promote spiritual growth and transformation and to enhance one's connection to the spiritual realm. It is also believed to be a powerful tool for personal healing and transformation, helping to release negative emotions and promote emotional balance and well-being.
