Astrological Sign of Leo
Gold crystallizes in massive forms, grains, flakes, dendritic forms, plates, nuggets, and rarely in octehedral, cubic and rhombdodecahedral crystals.
The occurrence of gold within a quartz crystal is not only beautiful, but rare. The colour range includes golden yellow, silver-white, to orange-red.
If one is fortunate enough to become an earth-keeper for a quartz crystal containing gold, the uses are extensive. The properties of gold and the properties of quartz crystal are combined and produce “dynamic” results.
Gold symbolizes the purity of “all that is”. It is symbolic of spirituality and development in the realm of complete understanding, allowing one to both attain and maintain communion with the source of all being.
It emits an energy to prompt one to allow beauty to come forth from the inner being as one travels in, and through, the world of experiences.
It helps one to improve ones character via learning, lessening the trauma associated with the situations experienced during the gain of knowledge. It assists one in the elimination of ego conflicts and feelings of futility.
It can also help to assuage the overburden of responsibility, to combat feelings of depression and inferiority, to allow one to both understand and to dispense with self reproach, and to calm excitation and states of anger.
Gold has been used in the development, purification, and balancing of the heart chakra and for the amplification of thought-forms. The purity of gold is said to help one to preserver higher thought forms for later retrieval.
Gold has also been used to open and to activate the third-eye and crown chakras.
It has been said to attract honors, wealth, and happiness, to provide composure, to stabilize the emotional system, to alleviate tension and stress, and to amplify positive feelings. It also assist one in attuning to nature and its healing forces.
Gold has been called “the master healer”. It is an excellent mineral for purification of the physical body.
It can clear negativity from the chakras and the energy fields of the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bodies, while transferring the vitality of any companion mineral to the affected area.
It produces an energy which is both cooperative and receptive, allowing for extensive use with other gem stones; gold is capable of attracting and maintaining those qualities which are inherent within the additional stone.
Gold, when in proximity to another mineral, provides a stabilizing influence to the energies of that mineral.
It has been used to enhance mental faculties, to rebuild the nervous system [e.g., in the treatment of multiple sclerosis], to improve digestion, circulation, and breathing, and to increase warmth. It can be used for the treatment of arthritis, skin cancer, blood disorders, pneumonia, vascular diseases, heart disease, eye problems, paralysis, rheumatism, skin disorders, tuberculosis, nightmares, and spinal problems.
It has been used to assist in the rejuvenation of the endocrine system, in the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and in the regeneration of tissue and the skeletal structure. It can be used to balance the right brain/left brain and to treat conditions associated with autism, dyslexia, epilepsy, and physical coordination.
