One of the most powerful of energy stones, quartz crystals are also some of the most commonly available as well as largest and most diverse in the mineral kingdom.
Clear quartz may be the first color that comes to mind, it is naturally found in nearly every color all over the world. Many favorite stones are actually quartz minerals, such as citrine, amethyst, agates, aventurine, calcite, chalcedony, tiger’s eye and others.
Quartz is often mixed with other crystals and stones. It is frequently part of common rock such as granite and gneiss, and in sediments like sandstone. Rutilated quartz is when (typically clear) quartz is found with filaments of other minerals, like angel hairs laid throughout.
Not sure of one of these beautiful varieties are a form of or related to the powerful quartz crystal? Each of these varieties share a hexagonal lattice, naturally forming in points with five sides, and whose qualities naturally amplify energy and intention.
By nature of it’s diverse color and composition, quartz is a powerful tool. For this reason – ALWAYS check your energy and intentions before working with quartz of any kind.
Resonating at the level of an individual’s needs, quartz amplifies energy programmed into it, for better or worse, and continues to transmit that energy throughout the world and into the etheric realms.
In ancient times, these stones were thought to be alive, taking a breath once every hundred years or so, and many cultures thought them to be incarnations of the Divine.
Alana Fairchild in her book, Angel Crystals 444, describes clear quartz as
“… a Master Healer. It amplifies energy – hence the teaching from the Angel of Clear Quartz is to become clear and aware of your energy, intention and thought.”
Wear jewelry adorned with clear quartz or carry a small clear quartz stone in a pocket to feel its energizing benefits throughout the day and to keep it close at hand for trying moments.
Also, add a clear quartz stone to your water bottle or in a bath for cleansing and healing throughout your body.
