ISIS FACE CRYSTALS -GENTLE NURTURING
Isis crystals are what i call a “formation crystal”. No its not a mineral but a formation!
They are identified as having a 5 sided face on at least one of the termination faces. These faces don’t necessarily have to be the biggest face on a crystal as once thought- or even have perfect proportions.
These faces are mostly found on points of a crystal cluster, although occasionally there are individual crystal points that have an Isis face, but these are extremely rare. The two lines rising up from the base equal in length symbolise balance. The last two lines, which connect at the top of the five sided face symbolise the blending of our human life with our spiritual growth.
Often found on the faces of natural quartz crystals - clear Quartz and smoky quartz isis faces are the most common.
