A Scientific Approach to a Citrine Crystal Skull

Author: Julian Greene [a WitchVox Sponsor]
Posted: February 6th. 2011
Times Viewed: 3,513

I recently had a new experience at The Blue-Eyed Witch Metaphysical Shop in Tombstone, Arizona. I was introduced to Elektra, a Brazilian citrine skull, and got to spend some time with her. I am a "have-to-understand-it, " "wrap-my-mind-around-it, " kind of person. I am wide open to all new things, but I have to have at least an inkling why or how it works in the long run.

I was ushered into a room where Elektra was set in front of me on a beautiful silk threaded tapestry. Kelly, her guardian, assured me that Elektra already knew what I needed and that I could just sit with her, I could ask her something specific, and I could touch her.

I "communed" with Elektra for about 15 minutes. The majority of the time, I simply felt her extraordinary calm. I cupped her with my hands, and rubbed her head with a cloth when I was finished. Kelly also had allowed me to choose a small citrine stone to sit between Elektra and I to record our session and to take with me. She assured me that once one has connected to Elektra that a permanent bond is created so that one can always be in touch with her.
That night, I easily recalled our session, and I asked her for a dream to connect with my ancestors. It proved to be a healing dream in which a very specific course of action was suggested -- a suggestion I knew had been made by my ancestors who had suffered from a similar malady.

I talked about Elektra on my radio show that same week, but I got a few emails from people saying they didn't really understand the concept. One person said it sounded rather "contrived" or "far-fetched." So, true to my nature, I did a little digging. There is much written about crystal skulls on the Internet -- some seem like aggrandized descriptions, others, of course, scoffing and debunking.

Despite what might seem to the skeptic like a conflated description of the metaphysical properties of these skulls, let's look at what we know about crystals scientifically. First, they have a neutrality, which makes them an excellent conductor. Most people know that quartz crystals are used as conductors in everything from radios to watches to computers. Crystals with occlusions are used as recorders. There are 32 classes of crystals. Twenty classes are piezoelectric, meaning that it creates electricity under mechanical stress (like pressing or squeezing) . Ten classes are pyroelectric, meaning that it emits electricity when it is heated. Even rarer are ferroelectric crystals, which take on permanent magnetic qualities when activated. Citrine is all three. (Crystal structure, Wikipedia, section 7: Physical properties)

Let's apply this to Elektra, who is a citrine skull. When Kelly was explaining to me how to sit with Elektra, she told me I could touch her, put my hands around her, rub her head with a cloth. Kelly told me that Elektra already knew what I needed, and that when I left, she would always be with me.

Knowing what I do now about crystals, I realize that when I pressed her with my hands, I activated her piezoelectric qualities. When I rubbed her head with the cloth, I created a little friction, which would activate her pyroelectric qualities. And since it is the ferrous (iron) qualities, which give her color, when I touched her, we created a permanent magnetic bond between us.

I really didn't even have to touch her. With a crystal of that size (she is the size of a human skull) , her properties would be greatly magnified and easily activated. Just the electrical impulses in my body would be enough to interact with her properties. Now, some scientists might question my conclusion of creating a permanent magnetic bond with her, although ferrous electric crystals do just that. But they might conclude that the magnetic bond would reside with her and not with me. However, a quantum physicist would understand how it could be because we exchanged properties -- the moisture in my skin would absorb the magnetic bond and it would be conducted within me.

Also, Kelly allowed me to choose a small citrine crystal to sit between Elektra and I, which she said, would record the session. Besides the permanent magnetic bond, the properties of the citrine (especially pieces with inclusions) make it an excellent recording device.

So now when one considers the proposed metaphysical qualities of citrine, perhaps they don't seem so conflated. One can certainly extrapolate that it would have clearing properties, thus affecting one mentally, emotionally, and physically. (Remember what a magnet can do to your computer? It can erase it.) But what about it's purported ability to attract wealth?

First remember that wealth means different things to different people. In other words, citrine's magnetic crystal qualities will help you to attract to yourself whatever you want. Most everyone desires wealth and prosperity, even if it's in the form of joy, happiness, rich experiences, great friendships, lovers, or money.

A modern artist carved Elektra, but she spent time with and was activated by an ancient crystal skull. As a recording device, the ancient skull must contain some of the greatest wisdom of the ages and has passed it on to Elektra. Once you bond with Elektra, you have at your disposal a tool that will help you access the same ancient wisdom. You can consult with her, and the wisdom will be revealed to you. Her clarifying powers are at your disposal whenever you desire. Or you can spend more time in direct contact with her or your own citrine stone, which you used to record the session and activate more healing.

Understanding that, we can come to understand how prayer works, and how crystals can aid our prayers and intentions, making them more effective. If you think that's a new one, look into the crystal gem encrusted breastplates of the Aaronic priests in the Torah or the Old Testament. They weren't just for decoration.
