In 2002, Scientists Bacoonier and Lan at Ben-Gurion University of Negev, in Beer Shevam, Israel made an astonishing discovery. These two researchers uncovered that aside from the hydroxyapatite crystals previously known to reside in the pineal gland, there was also another type of crystal-- hexagonal in nature and approximately 20 microm in length. These tiny crystals were calcite.
Bacoonier and Lan proposed that the complex calcite crystals inside the human pineal gland were probably responsible for the harmonic generation of pineal tissue.
Due to their structural makeup, it was thought that these crystals were be piezoelectric, meaning they are capable of producing a positive charge under pressure, much like the otoconia inside the inner ear.
They believed that the presence of both hydroxyapatite and calcite inside the pineal gland was biologically significant and related to how the pineal gland might be influenced and stimulated by the energy of electromagnetic fields. The pineal gland is a sensor of energy fields and can be influenced by electromagnetic radiation.
Alterations in electromagnetic fields and vibrations like sound waves stimulate these calcite crystals, creating a piezoelectric charge. This spark does something astounding; it makes the calcite microcrystals glow. In a 1982 study by Atari, the pineal gland was shown to omit a blue light.
The Piezoluminescence of the calcite results from frequency changes that we perceive in our environment. If you’ve ever seen a flash of blue light or experienced ‘seeing’ colors while falling asleep or meditating, this was the calcite in your pineal gland responding to energies. The luminescence is much more noticeable in darkness. You can literally see light in the darkness, through your third eye thanks to neural pathways connecting the pineal gland to the visual cortex of the brain.
