Raw Crystals

Raw Crystals


Raw crystals or polished, which one is better? While it really comes down to personal preference, neither is more affective than the other, it is a silly myth. First of all, polishing is not the same as cutting. Polishing represents the smoothing of a crystal, but cutting represents the shaping. Some people when talking about polishing, they are really referring to cutting, or vice-versa. Raw crystals are neither polished nor cut, are neither smooth or shaped. Regardless of what some people think, polishing a crystal does not alter its properties, does not magically change its energy or crystalline structure, it does not change the crystal on a molecular level, nor its arrangement of atoms, or ions.

Raw crystals are the initial 'natural' form and shape of any crystal when it is first harvested from the Earth. When a crystal is just excavated out of a mine, it is coarse, rough (not smooth / polished). Since they are raw crystals - they're slightly more fragile (especially softer stones or minerals) in this state and may chip or get scratched, and this is one reason why many stones are polished, but mostly comes down to appearance and adornment (what's more visually pleasing), not about energy effectiveness or power. Each has its own attributes and application. Knowing how to use these different forms opens the way to magical possibilities.

From an energetic perspective, a polished crystal is exposed to more peoples' energies than a raw crystal, because more human work is done to make a crystal polished. But this difference is temporary until you cleanse your crystal. And then there is debates about how a crystal is obtained, whether it was excavated gently or ethically hand-mined. However, seeking only ethically mined unmarred crystals is basically fruitless, and are you kidding me? Crystallization is a transition from chaos to perfection! Do you understand what crystals have went through for millions and some billions of years? Be sensible and realize that all crystals (both raw and polished) are involved to some extent in some sort of mining operations using bulldozers, backhoes, rakes, shovels, screwdrivers, hammers, sledgehammers, pickaxes, pry bars, chisels, tractors, and even explosives on some occasions, and you want to add to that what Mother Nature did to the crystals for millions of years evolving from liquid rock inside the earth cooling and hardening. And that's just the mining / excavation part, don't forget the crystal's cutting and polishing by progressive abrasion using finer and finer grits of harder substances, and the poor crystals sawing, grinding, sanding, lapping, polishing, drilling, tumbling. And so? When it's all about energy, just cleanse it, charge it and love it! Why are people still talking about this like it's a problem or something? Obviously more energies are exchanged, but this a rather meaningless point to make, it is moot because the first thing you will do when you receive your raw or polished crystal is cleanse and reprogram it!

A typical raw crystal myth or distortion is this connected word 'natural'. Some people associate the label 'natural' with raw crystals, but it is our opinion this is bad mislabeling, because a polished crystal is natural too, and still scientifically and energetically crystalline! Polishing a crystal does not change the properties or strength or effectiveness of the crystal. However, one thing that can change a crystals energy flow is 'cutting', which shapes the crystal (we have included these in our polished crystals section), which is done by a lapidary or gemcutter. Also, heat treating can also change a crystals attributes, commonly used to alter the stone's color, but is also used to increase clarity. But, one thing people fail to realize about energy, instead of considering heat treated crystals as mutated energy, see it as a modulated energy, a new energy, or the harmonic frequency you needed.
