Numerology and astrology both go back to ‘Chaldean times’, ancient Mesopotamia, as do many of the connections between crystals and the planets and zodiac signs. Birthstones are founded on this correspondence and the properties of a crystal can, to a certain extent, be ascertained by its numerological and astrological significators. You can also match crystals to a person’s birth sign when treating them, or place crystals on the chakras according to their number (see chart below). It is an interesting exercise to look at a crystal’s number, or zodiac sign, and see how this matches up with what you already know about a crystal. It may well give you additional insights. (You’ll find plenty more crystal and zodiac correspondences to explore in The Crystal Zodiac).

Working out the numerical value of a crystal name is easy. Just use the chart below for each letter and add up the numbers until you reach single digits – unless the number is a ‘master’ one such as 11, 22, 33 etc. There’s a chart below that gives you some of the immediate characteristics of those numbers and another one that gives chakra connections that I’ve found useful in the past.

Master number 33: 33 is the mover and shaker of the Master numbers (earning it the nickname “Master Teacher”). With 11 and 22 combined in this Master number, intuition and dreams reach an entirely new orbit. A 33 used to its full potential means that there is no personal agenda, only a focus on humanitarian issues. Someone with 33 strongly featured in their chart has the ability to throw themselves into a project that goes far beyond mere practicality.  http://www.numerology.com/numerology-news/master-numbers

You’ll find plenty of suggestions on the internet for crystals that carry master numbers. Check them out for yourself before accepting them! A useful number calculator can be found at http://www.paulsadowski.com/NameData.asp which will give you the overall total and then the reduced number so that you can check for master numbers. The site also has helpful portraits of the numbers.

In my experience, crystals are not named because of their numerology, rather the numerology reflects the principles that the stone already carries within it. But the synchronicities can be thought provoking.

Let’s look at an example: Ancestralite

Ancestralite

Ancestralite: The Buck Stops Here stone

When handed a new stone in Belfast and told that it healed the ancestral line, Gillian McBriar immediately said ‘Ancestralite’ (a number 1). Several people in the workshop referred to it as ‘Ancestraline’ (a number 4). Here’s what numerologist Paul Sadowski says about the positive and negative sides of a number 4:

No 4: A foundation, order, service, struggle against limits, steady growth.

If there is too much 4 energies present in your makeup, you may express some of the negative attitudes of the number 4. The obligations that you face may tend to create frustration and feelings of limitation or restriction.

Which doesn’t really feel quite right for a lineage breaker stone does it? Whereas the characteristics of pioneering number 1 fit much better:

The characteristics of 1 are: Initiating action, pioneering, leading, independent, attaining, individual.

The negative side of 1 is exactly what Ancestralite warns against:

The negative attributes of the 1 Expression are egotism and a self-centered approach to life. This is an aggressive number and if it is over-emphasized it is very hard to live with. You do not have to be overly aggressive to fulfill your destiny. The 1 has a natural instinct to dominate and to be the boss; adhering to the concept of being number One. Again, you do not have to dominate and destroy in order to lead and manage.

So, intuitively chosen Ancestralite fits the stone’s profile so much better. We didn’t give it ‘The Buck Stops Here!’ title for nothing when my crystal group assessed it.

ScorpioAssigning it to Scorpio arose from two factors. It has Hematite in it which way back in ancient Mesopotamia was associated with the planet Mars, the old ruler for Scorpio. But it also fitted so well with the modern ruler, Pluto, with its ability to descend into the depths, to go fearlessly into the taboo places where others fear to tread. There to delve into the family secrets and lies that mire the family, and to move beyond them to find the hidden treasures of soul learning that also pass down the ancestral line.
