Along with the triangle, there are usually other smaller crysatls projecting out of the back side.
Numerological sing is 7 signifying 'The Student' 7 represents the intuition of the higher mind and the one who goes within to find wisdom. 7 detachment is obtained enabling 3rd eye vision.
The 7 sided configuration signifies the opening doorway to which inner truth can be revealed.
The 3 sided triangle on the back of the crystal allows for those truths to verbally spoken. 3 represents the power of speech and the ability to creatively and joyously express. The powerful combination of the 7 takes the mind within to find wisdom. 3 enables that to be manifested and shared through the spoken word.
The septagon represents the 7 qualities the human consciousness must attain in order to access and channel the wisdom of the soul, one of the virtues is balancing in harmony the 6 others, Love, Knowledge, freedom, manifestation, (the ability to project and create) Joy, peace and Unity.
A channeling crystal is a line of communication with sources outside yourself. Generally, the main source is your guide. A guide is a non-physical entity whose primary job is to look after you. Every human being has a guide. Guides are sometimes called other things, such as conscience, or angels, but they are always with us. We must learn to listen to what they have to say. Your guide will never tell you what to do, or interfere in other ways with what you want to do, but your guide is there to help you find answers for yourself. And you can use your channeling crystal to let your guide be your conscience.
A channeling crystal can only be used by the person holding it. In other words, you can't send the energy to someone else in order to let him receive the information directly. However, since guides communicate readily with each other, you can become good at getting information to people by asking your guide to give you the needed information for someone else, and then relaying it to the person. This is how you channel information for others. Channeling crystals amplify the quiet inner voice of your guide, and can be a big help in learning how to channel information, both for yourself and for others.Exercise:
Sit quietly holding the channeling crystal in your hand and focus on or consider the problem or area that you need help with. `Listen' carefully but remember that the answer might not come immediately. Often, in the beginning you may find that you wake up some morning and seem to `know' what to do. When you are working on a problem, keep the channeling crystal with you as much as possible and keep it close at night. Sometimes that is the only time the answers can come clearly when you are just starting to open yourself.

A Channeling Crystal is a crystal with seven lines making up the outline of one of its faces (facets), with a perfect triangle directly opposite this 7-sided
face. This is the Sage of the Crystal Clan, a stone for scientists and seekers, those who want to know why and how, and how to then act on this
information with intelligence. A Channelling Crystal is sometimes called a Spiritual Growth Crystal or a 7-Sided Crystal.
The 7-sided face symbolizes the seven qualities human consciousness must master to access the wisdom of the Total Self: (1) Love, (2) Knowledge, (3)
Bliss, (4) Freedom, (5) Peace, (6) Manifestation, and (7) Unity. For this reason, the 7-sided face also symbolizes the Spiritual Seeker, the Mystic Student,
one who has dedicated herself or himself to discovering their true nature and relationship with the One.
The 3-sided face of the triangle on the Channeling Crystal symbolizes the integration of body, mind and spirit as they connect with and strengthen the
Seeker (the 7-sided face).
This crystal also symbolizes the numbers 7 and 3, each a strong symbol in its own right. Seven symbolizes (among other things) a new beginning after
the completion of a cycle; the completion of your former state of level of development; the four Earth elements (often represented by a square) combining
with Spirit (often represented by a circle); and has always been viewed as a particularly healing number. The number seven also symbolizes Perfect
Order (4+3); Heaven over Earth; the normal cycles of growth; the Great Mother; secret or hidden knowledge; Celestial Harmony; virginity; and the
Nucleus of All That Exists. The number seven was sacred to several deities, including Apollo, Ares, Artemis, and Osiris.
The number three symbolizes any trinity or triad, a gathering together of spiritual forces (often represented by the triangle); and the process of obtaining
perfection while still within Matter (often represented by a triangle within a square). Three also symbolizes creative power through unity; growth; forward
and upward movement; synthesis; multiplicity; and the ability to speak Absolute Truth.
Together, the 7 and 3 of your Channeling Crystal add up to the number 10 (7+3), the number of completion which leads you back again to the number 1
and the beginning of a new slightly higher turn on the spiral of your continuing journey.
A Channeling Crystal is an excellent stone to place in a chaotic or disruptive atmosphere since being close to one automatically stimulates the
consciousness of anyone in its immediate vicinity and promotes a stronger desire for truthfulness, serenity, harmony, and the subconscious desire to get
back on track with the true purpose of any meeting, to do what you came to do.
A Channeling Crystal helps you to attain conscious connection to the ultimate source of your accumulated knowledge and wisdom, allowing you to better
'channel' information from You to you. Use this crystal as a booster or fine-tuner to align you to your Higher (Source) and Inner Self, and then beyond.
Meditation with a Channeling Crystal can keep you in line with your spiritual goals and help you check your progress along your way. This crystal should
probably be one of your personal stones and kept away for other people, but use your intuition on that one.
