Quartz is a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 7. Its crystal system is hexagonal which grows in a large variety of formations. It is one of the most abundant minerals, found on every continent of the Earth, though much of the quartz available comes from Arkansas, Brazil and Madagascar.
Clear Quartz has been used as a healing tool since the ancient times. In Shamanic practices, it is referred to as the “light-stone”, an instrument of clairvoyance. Traditionally, Australian Aborigines and Prairie Indians of North America, used Clear Quartz as a talisman for visionary work. Similarly, the Navajo believed it to be Clear Quartz that first caused the Sun to cast its light upon the world.
The six sided hexagonal shape of Quartz crystal points, allows them to hold an intention. As such, the energy is magnified and radiated out into the surrounding area.
Himalayan Quartz is thought to help establish a strong, clear connection to higher guidance. These stones are believed to carry the vibration of the shamanic healers who have lived in the Himalayan mountain regions for centuries. Rather than receiving programming, these crystals are felt to “teach the user”.
Their vibration is felt to stimulate the third eye chakra to enhance psychic visionary ability. As such, this is thought to enable the knowledge of healing lore within these crystals to be accessed. Their energy may help us to better understand the information they impart and use it to carry out healing.
Clear Quartz is believed to encourage clarity of thought and purpose to one’s heart and mind. It may work on all levels of the energetic and physical bodies, and it is felt to resonate with all chakras. Clear Quartz is thought to amplify any energy with which it moves into resonance, including other stones, constantly broadcasting that energy into the Earth’s electromagnetic field.
