How to Select and Identify Healing Crystals Part 7: Crystal Grids and Orthorhombic Crystals
The next crystal system we will explore is the Orthorhombic. Crystals in this system have an internal structure or lattice in diamond shaped patterns. Their three axes are all equal lengths and all form 90° angles. The diamond shape, like the one pictured below, illustrates their pointed ends. This crystal structure allows energy to flow outward like a laser beam.
Crystals in the Orthorhombic Crystal System can be used on crystal grids when we are looking to remove or rid ourselves of something that does not serve our higher self. If anxiety, depression, worry or regret are holding you back, turn to crystals in the Orthorhombic System. Their diamond shaped lattice will assist by taking the undesirable emotions and the negative energy they have imposed and carry it through their diamond shaped lattice outward like a laser beam, removing the tight grip it once had over you.
In addition to purging our negative energy and undesirable emotions, they also help revitalize and restore our mind, body and spirit to its natural state of balance. If doubt crept in, use these crystals to restore your faith in your beliefs to create contentment and peace within. If you lost your job and are feeling uncertain or insecure as a result, use Orthorhombic Crystals to help focus and amplify your energy, enabling you to attract and manifest a job you desire.
Healing crystals that fall under the Orthorhombic Crystal System include:
Angelite, Aragonite, Bronzite, Celestite, Chiastolite, Chrysocolla, Dumortierite, Iolite, Peridot, Prehnite, Zoisite, Stibnite, Tanzanite and Topaz.
This concludes part 7 of our series How to Select and Identify Healing Crystals! Next time we will explore our fourth crystal system and learn how their internal lattice is structured creating a better understanding of how their energy flows. Be sure to save, Pin or print the image above as it sums up the information we covered on Orthorhombic Crystals and lists a variety of healing crystals to use when you wish to rid yourself of something or to restore you to a state of balance.
