Trigonal - structured Crystals

Trigonal is "mutual harmony"

In Astrology shown by both the Trine and sextile.

 

In Homeopathy the Sycotic miasm including the mammals, Lac remedies and Pusatilla.

 

In Psychology this is your team player - they are loathed to 'stick their heads above the parapet'. As a result they rarely have mental health issues.

Trigonal crystal personality type

Is like a blessing: there is a comfortable, easy-going sociability and natural friendlyness. These types can accept the world with open arms: at least the normal, average, rational, common-sense part of the world.  They tend to keep their distance from the  irrational, the strange and unpredictable!

 

Often confident and usually generous, hospitable, with no motive other than being a good neighbour and to enjoy life's blessings.  However, we could say that they dislike adversity - which some

people describe as "a fair-weather friend".

They may habitually take the easiest route and might never explore other options, never question the given norm, challenge the 'status quo' or ever question or choose an alternative.

 

So ironically, they won't have much time for homeopathy, astrology or crystal work! But they will ignore it rather than criticise it - they simply don't feel strongly enough

to vocalise an objection - they are not campaigners!  

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

Stichtite

Mohs 1.5 - 2

Is a soft, waxy and lilac coloured

Finding your "creative, resourceful and spiritual" crystals.

Knowing you need an trigonal 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. upper heart - pink
