For thousands of years, our ancestors have recognised that crystals are power-filled objects. They offer massive benefits to our lives if we harness their energy. Energy generator crystals enhance the innate power of crystal with their special star-shaped formation. They raise the energy from the earth to the sky, and can bring universal light and knowledge into your space.
Each type and combination of crystals has its own uses, including healing, protecting, and of course, energy generation. In this article you will find out how to use different types of energy generators and see which aspects of your life would benefit from one of these amazing crystals.
What is an Energy Generator Crystal?
An energy generator crystal, also sometimes called a projector crystal, has equal sides or faces which taper to a point. Every crystal is unique and individual, with its own qualities. They can be cloudy, clear, or a mixture of both, and can contain phantoms, inclusions or rainbows.
A number of these crystals are joined as wands to the sides of a larger central crystal, usually with a metal binding, creating a multi-point star shape. Energy generator crystals with four or seven wands are most common. The conical or pyramidal shape of the central crystal amplifies the power of the surrounding crystals, directing the energy to where it is needed.
The crystals that form an energy generator can be a combination of different stones, or all made from the same material. The way energy is drawn through the generator remains the same.
How to use Your Energy Generator Crystals
Energy generators are great tools for meditation, healing, and general support, and can also be used to charge other crystals. Different types of energy generator have specific uses based on their component crystals.
Place energy generators in your home or workspace to protect, activate and transmute energy. Having an energy generator crystal in your space will help to clear out negative energies, giving you peace of mind during your daily life.
Use energy generator crystals for healing by placing them on parts of the body, or use as part of Reiki or other traditional therapeutic practices. Generators can restore, amplify and rebalance the energy flows of the body. To assist in healing, position a crystal on any chakra of the body – the seven chakras go from the base of the spine up to the crown of the head. If you have more than one crystal, use the generator in combination with other crystals placed on different parts of the body in a grid-like fashion. A generator containing amethyst is ideal for use during healing because it acts as a tranquilizer and cleanser.
If you are in search of healing from difficult thought processes, anxiety or stress, the Black Tourmaline and Clear Quartz energy generator is well suited to this use. The black tourmaline wands help to remove negative energies while calming, purifying and protecting, and this works alongside the clear quartz centre.
Energy Generators for Meditation
Place an energy generator crystal at the centre of your meditation circle or use as an accompaniment to your individual meditation practice. The crystal will help to improve your concentration and energy, amplifying it beyond your normal capability. An excellent choice of generator for meditation is the Chakra energy generator, which aids in balancing your thoughts. You can select one of these generators based on the personal challenges you face during meditation and the aims of your practice, or alternate between them to experience multiple benefits.
Gridding with Energy Generator Crystals
Energy generators can be used in combination with other crystals to create an energy grid. Using a generator as part of a grid is a powerful tool for healing.
Place your energy generator in the centre, surrounded by a circle of other crystals. The energy will enter through the top and be dispersed through the wands, bringing universal light and knowledge. Energy grids have many uses, including healing and granting wishes.
Energy Generators – Powerful Vibrations
In general, energy generators raise the vibration level of your space. A higher level of vibration is associated with better mental and physical health, a better mood and more positive outlook. Lower vibration levels, meanwhile, are linked to poor health and less prosperity.
Whether you use your generator crystal at the center of a grid or on its own, it is a powerful tool to bring balance to your life and create a positive atmosphere in your home.
Remember to always place your energy generator crystals in a suitable place. Be aware that energy generator crystals can break other crystals – they are that powerful! So they should always be placed with care.
Native American Indians’ spiritual beliefs and rituals were complex, mysterious and symbolic. Their traditions were passed down from one generation to the next through signs and symbols. They created pictographs to convey stories using shapes that resemble specific persons or physical objects. These pictograms were their way of sharing feelings, emotions, dreams, visions, and complex ideas. They also depicted achievements, acts of heroism, significant life events and spirit guides. The drawings could be found on clothing, totem poles, tepees, war paint and musical instruments. One of the symbols that frequently appears in the Native American artwork is the arrowhead.
More Than Just a Weapon
As a weapon, the arrowhead’s pointed shape would easily penetrate the skin of the target. A variety of stones were used in crafting the arrowheads. The sizes and styles varied depending on the intended use. Firing an arrow required a steady hand, keen instincts, great strength and excellent vision.
As a talisman, the arrowhead was worn around the neck to ward off the Evil Eye. It symbolised courage, strength, and protection. Native Americans believed the arrowhead could deflect negative energy and allow the wearer to absorb their enemy’s power.
Through the decades, the arrowhead has continued to be worn or carried by many. Despite our technology-based culture today, many of us still appreciate some of the old customs. This is especially true for those who are descendents of the Native Americans.
How You Can Harness the Power of the Arrowhead
Many people today are intrigued by the arrowhead meaning and enjoy wearing handmade arrowhead jewellery to bring protective energies into our lives. It is said that an arrowhead will also help the wearer embrace their innate sense of adventure, which is a quality many people lack these days. They tend to fill their time with the Internet, social media, movies, games, and other unfulfilling activities. All the more reason to harness the power of the arrowhead to awaken that adventurous spirit once again.
If you are interested in harnessing the power of the arrowhead into your life, you’ll find that a variety of stones are used for carving the piece. At Precision Pendulum, each piece of jewellery is lovingly handcrafted to compliment our customer’s unique style. Why choose handmade jewellery? First of all, each piece is unique, no two are the same. And, because they are not mass-produced, there is less impact on the environment. We begin with raw materials to meticulously craft a one-of-a-kind, affordable, and timeless accessory for your body, spirit and home. You’ll find that our designs are delicately crafted to be versatile enough for any occasion.
Before you begin making jewellery or beading projects, gather some basic tools and supplies and become familiar with recommended lengths for necklaces, bracelets, and more. Consider how to personalise your work, for example: by using birthstones and your own designs. And when you need help — with design inspiration, supply sources, or technique — take advantage of the rich online resources created by other jewellery-making fans.

We thank you all, our lovely extended family, who make all this so enjoyable. We are so lucky to have every one of you.
The year that was
2018 had been a spectacular year for us, our business saw a staggering 252% increase in our year-to-year profit. This was mainly due to a huge increase in our domestic market. We kept our prices low and absorbed the increasing costs while producing new lines. We are the biggest pendulum supplier in the world.
In 2018, we launched a major offensive expansion campaign to promote our products. North America remains our biggest market outside of Australia and it increased by 135%, our European market grew by 222%, while our New Zealand and Asian markets remained almost identical compared with 2017.
At home in Australia, we more than doubled our presence, by 257%, in a market we have already dominated. It is our biggest market and we intend to remain local. Home is where the heart is.
The year forward
In 2019, we plan to keep increasing our market share both domestically and internationally. Precision Pendulum will produce new lines starting with our Brazilian range. We will keep increasing our ranges in the sections in which we are already dominant and we will look at new ways to increase our presence in the sections in which we are still growing. 2019 will be a very exciting year for us as we expect to reach a few new milestones.
Love and peace.
We at Precision Pendulum wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very, very Happy New Year. We will try to be an even greater crystal shop for you in 2019. It has been a really great year for us thanks to all our loyal customers. May all your dreams come true.
Precision Pendulum has shipped in a range of Brazilian crystals just in time for Christmas. Brazilian crystals are world famous for their quality and vivid colours. Amongst the most exciting new additions will be the Black Kyanite, a rare crystal many of our customers have been asking for. We have made these fantastic Black Kyanite into pendants in their raw state, such beautiful and rare crystals need no improvement. Another exciting new range in the shipment is the spectacular Brazilian druzy pieces, come complete with metal stands ready to display. Each piece is unique and so mesmerisingly captivating. Nothing is more beautiful than Brazilian gemstones at their best!
Also don’t miss the Brazilian crystal trees which seemingly grow out of an amethyst druzy, such special craftsmanship.
Take a look at our beautiful Brazilian range. At the time of writing, we have already run out of 3 items in the range, they won’t be back until 2019. Be quick if you want them before Christmas.
It’s that time of the year again, when everyone runs around like mad looking for the perfect gifts for their loved ones. Now, who doesn’t love crystals? The colours, the shine, the absolute beauty of these stones, will just blow everyone away.
But choosing crystals as gifts for your loved ones is not that easy. You need to match their personality with the crystal, and do they want the crystals in pendulums, jewelleries, big stones, small stones, in what shapes, etc. The best way to find out is to observe what they like to wear, what are their favourite colours. Then at least you already have the colours right. After that see what they like, do they like to wear jewellery or do they like to have ornaments at home.
If they like to wear jewellery then we have a huge range of crystal jewellery. If they like to have ornaments at home then give them items such as pyramids, crystal balls, crystal trees, or any of the bigger decorative items. If they do not wear jewellery nor have ornaments at home then they will like something more secretive like pendulums, worry stones, healing wands, rune stones, or other more personal power items.
Whatever you decide, be quick! We are absolutely swamped with orders right now. Several items are already sold out and won’t be back in until next year. The Christmas buying season is already in full swing and you don’t want to miss out! Give crystals to everyone in the family and all your friends and watch them squeal with delight!
Have you ever wondered what your fancy wine glasses are made of and why they are called crystals? What about that expensive miniature crystal swan you have in your cabinet?
The word “crystal” is a loosely used word which can refer to a myriad of things. Needless to say, it creates confusion and a lot people associate the word to mean natural quartz. This is just not so. Crystal can mean, among others, both glass and quartz. Other natural stones are also often included in the meaning of crystal. When the word crystal is used to refer to glass, it is of the lead glass type, meaning the glass is heated longer at lower temperature. For the purpose of this blog, I do not differentiate between lead glass (which can be called crystal) and glass (which cannot be called crystal). I will refer to both as glass.
The type of Quartz most often confused with glass is the clear quartz variety, where it can appear transparent and colourless. The common quartz contains plenty of inclusions, fine bubbles, and tones of cloudiness and is easily distinguishable from glass. Rock Crystal, however, is a type of clear quartz which is totally transparent and colourless and appears as clear as glass and is in general more expensive than the common variety of clear quartz.
So how do you tell the difference between rock crystal and glass? Quartz is harder than glass and, like diamonds, will scratch and cut glass easily, but it is often not practical to whip out a piece of glass from your pocket, or the piece of quartz you are trying to test may not have a sharp edge, or you may not even be allowed to use the quartz for testing before you buy it in the first place.
First thing first, wine glasses, table bowls, and all tableware are very likely to be glass, the so-called crystalware. They are made with lead glass, there is no quartz in them. The same goes with crystal decorations and jewellery from expensive leading brands. These products are manufactured with lead glass, some of them claim to have some “quartz dust” in them. Some of them may even have natural quartz, but then they would say so. The rule of thumb is, if the seller only vaguely claims that it is crystal then it is likely to be just crystalware, i.e. glass.
Your biggest problem is when buying items such as crystal balls or pendulums or other items which the seller claims to be of a specific stone. The easiest way to test it is by tapping the stone lightly with your nail. Glass will give sharp pings, quartz does not. Even though quartz is harder than glass, the surface of glass has the hard finality feel to it whereas quartz has a softer feel. Glass also feels colder, especially on cold days. You can differentiate the common varieties of quartz from glass visually with ease; if the item is absolutely homogenous and perfect, it’s glass; but it is a lot harder to differentiate glass from rock crystal. This is where experience comes in but most people do not have this luxury. You can, however, look at the seller – do they sell similar items, do other items look fake or real, etc. Another thing I always look for is if the item comes in a very elaborate silk or velvet lined box/container. I will get suspicious right away. Remember that rock crystal is expensive, you can’t get a sphere with stand and silk lined box for $20 postage inclusive.
