This crystal is shaped in accordance with the “hexagonal system” law of nature. This means things in nature have a great propensity to form in hexagonal shapes, including beehives, carbon atoms in organic molecules, and basalt columns. Many crystals are packed together at the molecular level in hexagons. This means they naturally form into hexagonal shapes just as in the basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway Ireland. Healing crystals in this form have focused and concentrated energy.
