GROWTH INTERFERENCE (Shift quartz)
This is a rare and unusual formation whereby the quartz has grown amongst other crystals, which have subsequently been removed from the matrix, often through dissolution, leaving an imprint or markings showing where they once had been. Shift crystals are amongst the best known forms of GI growth, and in their case plates of calcite had grown into the quartz and been subsequently dissolved out at some time in their history, leaving lines and marks in the quartz, very much as if they have been "cut" into by sharp saw blades. I have also found the same patterns amongst some candle quartz, and of course Nirvana quartz is also the same formation. Energetically GIs hold their history and show the marks and "wounds" of the changes they have endured over many 1000s of years. Their energy is clear, sharp and high, and very clarifying and illuminating, as if years of ancient wisdoms have been accumulated in silent contemplation, waiting for the right time and person to awaken and utilise what has been stored within. They have been called "Shift" crystals because this is one of their prime attributes - that of catalysing change when the user is approaching or undergoing a change in energy state, often because of work being done on a personal level that is clarifying and refining their higher Dimensional (Light) bodies.
