How are minerals involved in creating liquid crystalline water?

crystalline water

Water does not naturally exist without minerals (salts/electrolytes). Even rain that has been purified by the process of evaporation immediately begins gathering minerals when it comes in contact with the Earth. Healthy water always contains minerals, just like the healthy internal fluids in our bodies. BUT the form these mineral take and the way they are held in the water is very important.

Minerals in water can either be biologically available or not. In other words, they can be easily recognized or they must undergo changes before they can perform their functions. Any changes require "work" so the easier it is for minerals to be used the better. Most biologically unavailable minerals are excreted or stored in the body as deposits that can cause plaque and joint problems.

Viktor Schauberger, an Austrian forester often referred to as the Water Wizard, used the term juvenile and mature water to describe the difference between structured water with biologically available minerals and unstructured water with minerals that were largely unavailable for use by organic life forms. He referred to water that came to the surface of the Earth on its own as "mature" water; water from wells, he called "juvenile."

Juvenile water often contains "hard water minerals" that produce deposits (scale) on faucets, hot water heaters, showerheads, and on other equipment. This is because the minerals are held differently in juvenile water than the minerals in mature water. Water that comes to the surface on its own is structured and it carries a balanced blend of minerals gathered during the sojourn beneath the Earth. Minerals in mature water play a role in the development of liquid crystalline structure. They behave differently than minerals in most subsurface aquifers.

Electrical charges in structured water

Water (a dipole) organizes around charged surfaces, building layers of structured water. Minerals that are truly dissolved in water are in ionic (charged) form. They serve as nucleating zones for the formation of structured water. When the Earth's organizing forces (vortices, electromagnetic fields, light, sound, etc.) are applied, layered regions of structured water around each mineral expand to create a coherent domain that functions like a crystal. In other words, ionized minerals serve as seeds for the initiation of liquid crystalline water. As water matures under the influence of organizing forces, the region of liquid crystalline water around each charged particle increases to the point where balance and coherence are eventually achieved in the whole body of water. In this state, individual mineral ions are isolated from each other by many layers of tightly structured water. Mature water does not form scale.

On the other hand, minerals in juvenile water have a much smaller region of structured water surrounding them - perhaps only a few molecular layers. They are held randomly in the midst of water molecules that are also randomly hydrogen bonded. Minerals in juvenile water are more easily attracted to each other. Hard (juvenile) water contains calcium and magnesium ions that have bonded with bicarbonate ions to form calcium and magnesium carbonates. Carbonates are insoluble in water. They may be carried as colloids (molecular groupings that can appear dissolved) but as soon as water is still, they begin to settle. In juvenile/unstructured water, carbonate minerals eventually gather together in tightly cemented layers. Heat and evaporation accelerate the formation of scale.

What happens to carbonate minerals in juvenile water when that water is structured by methods outlined in Dancing with Water? As carbonates and other mineral conglomerates become surrounded by increasing layers of organized water, they are no longer drawn to each other in the same way. They break apart and form a fine sediment rather than scale. Silt on the bottom of a water container is a sign that the water has acquired some degree of maturity and structure. Experimentation reveals that structuring of water using magnetic fields, reduces water "hardness" by changing carbonates from calcite to aragonite. Aragonite is a form of calcium carbonate that accumulates as fragile, needle-like crystals. These tiny crystals are loosely packed. They sometimes float on the water's surface and are nothing like the dense, tightly packed calcite form of calcium carbonate that produces scale.

Dancing with Water discusses a variety of ways to add minerals in their liquid, ionized form (as salts) to assist in the creation of full-spectrum water.
