Any crystal with eight faces (facets) rather than the more usual six is an 8-Faceted Crystal. These crystals are rare since quartz crystals always try to grow six sides.
8-Facted Crystals have the extra-special ability to activate energy around them in tune with all of the frequencies governed by the symbolism and sound of the number 8. Symbolically the number 8 is the number for Infinity and Cosmic Consciousness. It is also the number of regeneration; renewal after an initiation; abundance; the reality of the physical world; perfect balance and rhythm; the goal of the spiritual Initiate; entrance into a new state or condition of the Soul; and all possibilities contained within manifestation. Eight is the number assigned to Hermes and Thoth and the equivalent of the Hebrew YHVH. To the ancient Hindu 8X8 was the number of the Celestial World as it is established on Earth.
This crystal is associated with prosperity, success, and accomplishment, making it an excellent stone to have around when pursuing a business venture or planning a career, and to remind you that your possibilities are indeed endless. Paired with an Abundance Crystal, a good attitude and some effort on your part, it would be hard to miss your target.
An 8-Faceted Crystal helps you learn to balance your desire for material things with your spiritual growth. It is an excellent reminder that it is entirely possible to be wealthy and spiritual at the same time, and that you are never stuck with the common, ordinary pattern of life or growth that everyone expects of you.
An 8-Faceted Crystal is an excellent tool for recharging the human aura and maintaining your spiritual equilibrium. It is a first rate communication tool, especially for communicating with your guides, teachers, and Higher or Inner Self.
