Clear Quartz, the “Master Healer” and “Stone of Power”, is also known as “Clear Quartz”, “Crystal Quartz” and “Rock Crystal”. The name Quartz Crystal comes from the Biblical Greek word krystallos which means clear ice. Quartz is a commonly found crystal on almost every continent, although the retail pieces mainly come from Arkansas, Brandberg, Brazil, China, Himalayas, India, Madagascar, Morocco, Namibia, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia and Tibet. It is a Silicon Dioxide of the silicates class of crystals. It is colourless and transparent to semi-opaque in appearance.
Other forms of Quartz with their own unique metaphysical properties are: Amethyst, Ametrine, Aventurine, Blue Quartz, Cat's Eye, Chalcedony, Citrine, Green Quartz or Prasiolite, Milky or Snow, Rose, Rutilated, Smoky and Strawberry Quartz.
Clear Quartz is a powerful healing crystal with the ability to work on any condition, hence it being known as the “Master Healer”. It was believed to be water that was frozen so hard that it would never thaw and in Ancient Rome wealthy ladies held it in their hands to keep them cool in hotter weather.
It enhances psychic abilities, particularly clairvoyance, and will aid communication on both the physical and spiritual realms. Clear crystal spheres have been used for centuries for crystal gazing or scrying. Ancient civilisations used Quartz as religious objects and in funeral rites to dispel evil and magical enchantments.
Clear Quartz is easy to programme and is used to make silicon chips for computers and other electrical equipment such as radios and watches. It also amplifies the energy of any other crystal used with it and will protect against negativity by cleansing and strengthening the aura whilst attuning you to your higher self.
In their natural state, Clear Quartz points radiate their energy outwards and are fabulous crystals to use with healing grids or as healing wands. Quartz brings clarity of thought and aids concentration and memory retention, whilst filtering out distractions, making it particularly useful as a studying aid or whilst undertaking written or verbal examinations.
