Amorphous - structured Crystals

Amorphous - A spiritual force: "no rules, and even fewer boundaries'

In Astrology these are the unaspected planets.

 

In Homeopathy can be intangiables, any animal, sun, hydrogen, luna, rainbow and nosodes.

 

In Psychology they are the brilliant and dazzeling, or the weak and broken. No limit to creative brilliance, no restraint from self-destruction.

Amorphous crystal personality type

Amorphous is 'pure instinct' and defies description - free-spirit, free-willed, effortless learning, easy comprehension, dazzeling and yet so misunderstood.  They thrive independently from logical and rational world.  True artists, internally driven.

 

They are self-taught, the formality of a classroom is a prison.  The free-spirit.  People who can pick up a musical instrument and just play it.  Nothing formal, nothing pre-planned. Money is irrelivant.

 

Artist, composer, linguist, poet - Mozart is our best example.

Is chaos in one form or another - they are impossible to pin down, impulsive and unstructured - yet infinitly intriguing.  Unpredictable, and because everything is acheived through play, rather child-like (not childish). So whatever feels right - instinctively works.

 

Unaware of boundaries, time or place, they often marry the wrong type.  Then misunderstood, they are forced into a regime that stiffles and destroys their instinct.

The result of all this is . . .

Moh's hardness scale for rocks and crystals

The hardness or softness of a rock/mineral is rated on the Moh scale from 1 to 10.  1 being very soft and 10 very hard.  Ten specific minerals and gemstones define this scale, and feature in the puemonic: 'The Geologist Can Find An Ordinary Quartz (that) Tourists Call Diamond'.

 

Thus: 1 Talc,  2 Gypsum, 3 Calcite,  4 Fluorite,  5 Apatite,  6 Orthoclase Feldspar, 7 Quartz,  8 Topaz,  9 Corundum (ruby, sapphire) 10 Diamond

Astro-homeopathy analagy to the Moh scale.

Simplifying the Moh hardness/softness scale to -

1 - slight but often,  4 - moderate and alternating

7 - strong and forceful, 10 - intense, profound, consumed

Finding your "creative, resourceful and spiritual" crystals.

Knowing you need an amorphous crystal structure use the Mohs hardness scale to direct you to a specific crystal. If more one crystal is that hard, refer to the chakra colour of your "block" ie. crown - violet.
