Many things in nature have a great propensity to form in hexagonal shapes, including beehives, carbons atoms in organic molecules, and basalt columns. Insect eyes, and spirals in sunflowers, and fractals in romanesque broccoli, are all based on the Fibonacci sequence, and the hexagon’s unique ability to pack with itself without forming any gaps. 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.
