Did you know a crystal wand focuses the energy while a crystal cluster spreads the energy? It’s kinda opposite effects, right? While diamond features royal cuts like the princess to cushion cut, other semi-precious gemstones are either naturally born with a unique shape of artificially polished to look so.
Regardless of the method, the final shape of the crystal in your hand, needs activation. It’s not that the stone won’t charge otherwise, it’s just that the charge will be menial. As crystals are governed by cosmic laws, abiding by it can yield to bigger power than your current strength.

I’ve never used the Merkaba star, pictured – though I’d like to – but I do know what they do. They’re somewhat like two interlaced pyramids. It focuses energy from each apex. I should get hold of one and find out — wonder which crystal I should choose? Maybe Pyrite, Smoky Quartz or Obsidian? Ceida, what would you suggest?
I have one star-shaped crystal, a lovely little Clear Quartz. No drama with this one — it’s a sweet little thing which makes me feel happy when I hold it. It’s obviously been handled the right way.
As for the properties of star-shaped crystals, they have both literal and allegorical properties. Allegorically speaking, stars are up in heaven, and so the shape is symbolic of heaven and great for Higher Realm contact. Literally, they can help with cosmic contact; they can, used correctly, not only channel healing energy and help us get in touch with the Angels, but also help us connect to destiny and the mind of the cosmos itself. Plus of course they bear the powers of whatever crystal they’re made from, but very focused and directed, and for this reason they’re also splendid tools for learning through meditation.
Crystals can be shaped into any number of forms. I have a crystal horse made from Clear Quartz, a Rainbow Fluorite horse’s head (I’d rather find that in my bed than a real one lol), and a Rainbow Fluorite that’s been shaped in a basic hexagonal facet. Still uncovering their powers.
Love and Light.
