I have to be honest here, a chip will effect the way the energy is released. A good point will release energy in a tight beal that can be directed. With a chip in the tip of the point the energy will be more defused, spread out. A chipped point is good for general healing and can be used placed between chakras to balance the chakras, it can be used to power a grid, it is still a good crystal. There is no bad crystal, just in how their used.
