Frequently Asked Questions


- Eugene Ionesco
It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question.

Instituto Xilonen (IX) is a New York institute dedicated to the advancement of conscious living.

We match ancient, high-frequency Crystals with individuals and institutions who seek to amplify their ability to live life and influence the world from a place of higher consciousness and harmony. We also provide support for the growth and nourishment of our Crystal Keepers through a variety of touchpoints and experiences.

In our work, we look at the body, mind, and spirit, knowing that life is a balance where all three areas need nurturing and self-expression. Crystals can support us in every phase.


Crystals have a fascinating inner design based on order and the principles of quantum physics. This design gives Crystals incredible stability and the ability to mirror and interact with the subtle energy fields of other living things, including humans.

In effect, Crystals help us stabilize our energy so that it is more coherent. The clearer we are energetically, the higher our vibrational frequency, and the more access we have to higher levels of consciousness.


IX Crystals are selected for their exceptional quality and grade. We partner with only a small number of select, family-owned Crystal suppliers known for their integrity. Once a Crystal is received in New York, we lovingly care for it. An IX Crystal remains with us until it is carefully and intentionally matched with the person (Keeper) who is most suited for its gifts and purpose.


We have over 400 Crystals in our collection, encompassing various shapes and sizes. We work mostly with 12 types of Crystals due to their properties and wide range of use. In addition, we have 12 Master Crystals dedicated to the organization and others that are available for placement. Master Crystals have unique qualities and shapes that act as conduits to higher realms of consciousness. They are extraordinary teachers known to hold and transmit vast amounts of information and wisdom.


IX Crystals are not sold in stores. Our work is customized to the needs of each individual so that every IX Keeper is matched with the Crystal that is perfect for them. We have two types of programs for individuals.

IX Private Session
The Private Session begins with a $500 deposit and an intake questionnaire to help us understand your unique needs and goals. Upon submitting the questionnaire, a private meeting is scheduled about six weeks out, either in our NYC office or digitally. In the interim, the IX Crystalogist and team carefully review your intake form and then pre-select three to five Crystals from our extensive selection of over 400 museum-quality Crystals. These pre-selected Crystals will be presented to you during your 75-minute meeting, where you and the Crystalogist will work together to fine-tune your selection. More information and a link to begin the IX Private Session can be found here.

Seeds of Light
Seeds of Light is an exclusive opportunity to honor a special someone’s birthday with a bespoke IX Crystal. Through a private digital matching session, your recipient will choose their perfect Crystal from the comfort of home. The process is similar to the IX Private Session, except that the selection comes from a specific IX Collection. There are three tiers for the Crystals, beginning at $800. Seeds of Light can also be gifted for any other special occasion or as a companion for your own journey. More information can be found here.


IX Crystals are museum quality, meaning they are both high quality and high value. We also provide IX Crystal Keepers with additional support and experiences for their journey of higher consciousness.

Seeds of Light ($800 – $3,200)
Individual Placements ($1,000 – $250,000)
Institutional Placements ($50,000 – $1+ Million)
