About: Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in earth’s crust after feldspar. Even though there are many different types of quartz such as rose quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz, and citrine, pure quartz is traditionally called clear quartz and is colourless and transparent. It has been used for centuries in hard stone carvings and in the making of jewellery.
Quartz is a commonly identified mystical substance for Australian aboriginals and is found regularly in cemetery passages in Europe and Ireland. Clear quartz is highly valued and useful today not only for it’s beauty, but also for its ability to transform mechanical pressure or heat into electromagnetic energy. It is also able to focus, amplify, and store energy, which makes it useful in ultrasound devices, watches, microphones, radio transmitters, and computers.
Metaphysical: The same properties that make it useful in electronics and technology make it a very versatile and multidimensional stone for healing, meditation, and expansion of consciousness. To benefit fully from clear quartz though one must feel in harmony with the stone and feel deserving of its gifts.
Clear quartz makes excellent wands staffs and templates for focusing and harnessing metaphysical energy. Carrying and holding clear quartz can give one an instant energetic lift, and it can be used to filter negativity and transform critical thoughts and actions by producing a protective ionic aura.
Why you should wear this stone: Due to clear quartz’s transformative, calming and healing properties we, at I love Chakra, use clear quartz in our crown and third eye chakra laces, malas, bracelets, and crystal beams.
The crown chakra is our connection to father divine. It governs the meditative calm space that one enters when the mind is still and we are connected to the vibrations of the universe. Through this chakra we pull celestial energy down from the heavens into this physical form.
The third eye chakra is where this divine energy is translated and transformed for our linear consciousness through intuition and dreams. Clear quartz can play a significant role in both of these processes because of the properties described above. Keeping it close to your skin as a lace, mala, bracelet, or crystal beam allows it to heal and benefit the wearer the most.
