۞ The Tabular Quartz is so named because its growth pattern is flat and broad. Frequently Tabular Quartz Crystals are double-terminated. They act as bridges of Light that allow energy to move over areas where blockages or breaks in the vibrational field would otherwise prevent energy flow. [Naisha Ahsian]
۞ ‘Tabbies’ are excellent allies to use on the healing table, because they can amplify the energy of other stones as they facilitate the movement of stone energies through the meridians and the chakra system. [Naisha Ahsian]
۞ In meditation, Tabular Quartz Crystals can assist in astral travel and the exploration of other lifetimes. [Naisha Ahsian]
۞ The Tabby Quartz is recognized as a flat crystal with “notches” on one or both of the flat sides. [Melody]
۞ Rubbing the fingernail in an “downward” motion across the notches [major striations] of the Tabby produces an “opening” of the crystal. This opening is similar to opening a file drawer; one can then access the information which the tabby contains. Closure of the “file drawer” is attained by rubbing the fingernail in an “upward” motion across the notches of the crystal. [Melody]
۞ The Tabby Quartz crystal is used to activate other crystals and minerals; one way to accomplish this is to hold the tabby in the “hand of preference” and to rub the tabby across the notches [in a downward motion], while holding the other stone in the other hand. [Melody]
