Computer Crystal

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 18 March 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This sits on my computer because it's pretty, and because some believe that not so healthy electromagnetic energy, or positive ions which cause irritation, may be coming off of our wonderful technology as we sit before it hour after hour. So, quartz, if true to it's amazing attributes, "might just neutralize negative energy coming off my little laptop," Sherpa Sez.

I aim the point of the crystal away from me. What do I have to lose?

This crystal looks a little like the Enterprise zooming off into space, I think, ...,and a frog too, by golly...! It measures about 3 &1/2 inches from bow to stern...

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

Your 3&1/2 inches quartz is not only beautiful but also miraculous. Maybe every computer user has to put it on the desk.

@Hiro: Hello Hiro! Buy a crystal and try it! At the least it is a lovely companion and contrasting decoration to one's computer station. Take it out in the sun for a short time after a month or so, to clear it, to sort of give it a break.

Beautiful quartz. I used to have some minerals but I have changed home so many times that I lose things every time above all when somebody else decides what to keep or not while you are packing the books... Have a nice day Joyce.

@Sido: I understand about the shifting of belongings when moving. Like how socks disappear into another dimension in the clothes dryer. Oui? I am having a good time photographing my crystals. There is just no end to image making. You have a lovely day and days, Sido. I enjoy you input and our blogfriendship.

Very beautiful crystal with a wonderfully dark background, although I can't say I believe in all that negative energy stuff. However, I do see the Enterprise and the frog. :-)))

@Jason Politte: I put the comment of enterprise in there for you. You know about positive and negative ions, right? The surf and fast moving water create negative ions which are invigorating. Chunook or hot winds create positive ions that irritate life. Computers and electronic gismos are neg. ion producing I read. What kind of ions are in tornados? On the cruize ship you are surrounded, on a peaceful sea, with negative, i.e. invigorating energy.

It makes a great item to look at when at the computer. It's a big example too. I always marvel at a crystals fine lines and precise angles. Nice shot.

@Don: Really a nice specimen, I know. Ron is a professional mineral/gem salesman.

We love to embrace and become addicted to all of these new "advances" (and just try and pry my fingers off this iMac keyboard or my DSLR !) but one never knows what kind of long term affects may be occurring; I like this idea of a big crystal juju chunk acting as your guardian :-)

@Rick: ...juju chunk guardian crystal. That's so coool.

Nice image, I love these natural geometric shapes nature is incredible

@Doug: Nature is well, divine! I look at my crystal often, while typing. It's weird. It never gets dusty.

A gorgeous image of a natural element ... what its powers are, I don't know, but it can't hurt to have one keeping you company!

@Judy aka L@dybug: Quartz makes your watch run. It's a practical helper, and so gorgeous.
