Crystal points direct energy through the termination or point. Pointed away from the body, it draws energy off, pointed towards the body it channels energy to the body.
Points may be natural or artificially shaped. A single crystal point has a definite faceted, pointed end and the other end tends to look ragged where it has been separated from a cluster base or it may have been cut so it will stand up.
Double terminated crystals have distinct points at both ends and radiate or direct energy through both ends at the same time. Double terminated crystals have distinct points at both ends that direct energy through both ends simultaneously. When using double terminated points in a crystal healing layout you can place the crystal in between two chakras to increase the flow and open the energy between the chakras.
