Why Love Quartz?
The healing magic of quartz knows NO limits! Quartz is like the village elder of the crystal world. It has been around forever, it holds all the answers, and everyone knows about it.
This incredible healing stone is abundant here on Earth, with loads of color and shape variations. Think rose, smokey, clear, phantom, rutilated, snow, tourmalinated, lithium, and aura, just to name a few.
Actually, this crystal is the most common AND varied crystal in the whole world. I have yet to meet a crystal enthusiast that only has one piece!
Healers widely agree that this stone is the most versatile of them all. This one crystal can do the work of many effortlessly! When quartz is clear, its energy is sort of neutral and doesn’t necessarily promote anything specific. When it has a color, it adopts the attributes of that color combined with its “neutral” energies.
A Brief History of Quartz
Ancient legends say that the hidden codes of the Universe are embedded into the crystalline structure of quartz, making it a sort of natural hard-drive.
The citizens of Atlantis were believed to leave behind their collective knowledge within the molecules of these “Record Keeper Crystals.” Identified by a natural, tiny pyramid engraved on the side of the stone, these Atlantean Crystals are rare treasures.
My mother is lucky enough to own one of these genuine Atlantean crystals and it is magical to behold! The little teeny tiny pyramid on its surface is very noticeable and simply incredible. Whenever I hold that crystal I feel like I’m connecting with ancient knowledge that we all once knew, but have forgotten.
According to legend, if all the Record Keeper Crystals are reunited and brought to the land of Atlantis, we will unlock all the cosmic wisdom that is hidden within their atoms!
What if that happened in our lifetime?
Perhaps one day (in the not so distant future) the secrets of quartz will be fully revealed, and we will remember all the forgotten wisdom of our ancestors! Maybe quartz came into the world in such large quantities to assist in the spiritual ascension of all the life that thrives here.
Maybe we are all reincarnated citizens of Atlantis, slowly gathering all the clues of our past with the soul-intention of bringing magic to the people once more.
Believe it or not, quartz is a common component used in our modern technology because of its conductive properties. Skeptics often don’t believe that crystals can be used in applied science, but they can, and already are.
Cell phones are common pieces of technology that incorporate this natural conductor. Inside a quartz clock or watch, the battery sends electricity to the crystal through an electronic circuit. The crystal oscillates (vibrates back and forth) at a precise frequency which allows the clock to be more accurate.*
Energetic Properties of Quartz
Quartz is an energy healer’s best friend! It has the ability to absorb, store, release, amplify, unblock, and regulate energy.
Here is a stone of very high energy, and it helps to clear up the mental fog so we can see things more clearly. We become rich with creative energy, which ultimately brings us closer to our Higher Selves. Spiritually, this stone raises our energy to the highest possible level.
It helps us tune into our inner creativity by increasing self awareness and improving focus and concentration.
Spiritually, this stone raises our energy to the highest possible level. It helps us reconnect with our Higher Selves so we can receive more spiritual wisdom and guidance. Quartz has a beautiful and high vibrational frequency!
Known as the Master Healer, quartz can be used to treat any bodily condition. It stimulates the immune system, which can help bring the whole body back into balance.
Our entire Chakra system can be harmonized and activated with just this one stone. Treat quartz as your go-to stone whenever you’re in doubt about what to use. Or if you’re in need of a general, energetic tune up.
Clear quartz is associated with very pure, white light energy. Use this beautiful energy to release anger, tension, and resentment.
During meditation, this glassy gem can guide us to higher states of consciousness. Whether you’re just a beginner or a meditation veteran, this crystal can be used to heighten your psychic awareness. Extremely useful for those times we wish to explore a world beyond ourselves. Also, it amplifies the energy of anything (especially other crystals) that is nearby.
Metaphysical Attributes of Quartz
Please keep in mind that metaphyiscal attributes are open to interpretation. The following information is based off what I have learned during my own experiences and research. There is no one right or wrong answer. Decide what resonates with you and feel free to disregard what doesn’t.
Chakras: Cleanse and activate the entire Chaka System with quartz. Especially helpful for the Third Eye and Crown Chakras.
Zodiacs: The metaphysical community mostly associates clear quartz with Gemini and Leo. However, the nature of this crystal makes it connect with all signs.
Element: Spirit, because this stone is believed to increase spiritual wisdom. All the karmic lessons we came into this life to learn can be brought to the light with the help of this crystal.
Pairs well with: Literally every crystal on Earth. The perfect companion for any and every stone! Even itself.
Quartz truly is the most powerful healing stone on our planet. Its versatility alone earns it this title. Expert crystal healers and total beginners alike are drawn to this gem. Personally, I love having this crystal because it’s so pure and soothing. I use it to help strengthen my subtle body, while maintaining good health in my physical body.
Physical Characteristics of Quartz
All quartz is created from silicone and oxygen, which gives it that clear base. Other minerals and metals sometimes get mixed in there, giving rise to all the different quartz varieties. It’s unclear exactly how many varieties there are in the world. Especially since different combinations of crystals can naturally grow together under certain circumstances.
As mentioned above, we are discussing the most common crystal in the whole world. However, not all of its variations are as prevalent. For one example, citrine is a type of quartz that was once amethyst exposed to extreme amounts of heat.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to come across genuine citrine because of the amount of time it takes to form. Most rock shops only carry heat-treated citrine; consider consulting an employee first.
On the Mohs hardness scale, quartz registers at a seven. Meaning it’s pretty tough and not easily damaged. Although sculptures made out of quartz are not hard to find. When perfectly formed, the surface of this crystal has a glass-like luster.
Rainbows, phantom shapes, and other imperfections are commonly found deep within the structure. Polished, pointed, or rough, quartz crystal is always a beautiful stone.
