Clear Quartz is sometimes called ‘Rock Crystal’, and is the stone most often thought of when term ‘Quartz’ is used. The name comes from the Greek for ‘ice’, and some of the ancients believed that Quartz crystal was water frozen so hard it could never thaw.
Clear Quartz has long been the subject of spiritual beliefs and folklore. The Japanese called clear Quartz ‘the perfect jewel’ and viewed it as a symbol of infinite space, purity, perseverance and patience. Indigenous cultures in both North America and Burma have believed clear Quartzes to be living entities and presented them with food as ritual offerings. Crystal balls brought back by the Crusaders were said to possess magical powers. In Scotland and Ireland, spheres of rock crystal were long used to cure diseases in cattle. In past cultures of Central and South America, Quartz crystals carved into shapes of human skulls were venerated as powerful religious objects – the dwellings of deceased ancestors or gods. In a remarkable coincidence or synchronicity, aboriginal tribes in both Australia and South America describe in their creation myths the image of the ‘cosmic serpent’, progenitor of all life, being led and guided by a Quartz crystal.
Clear Quartz is also a stone of Light, bringing heightened spiritual awareness to whoever wears, carries or meditates with it. It provides a clear corridor for the higher vibrational frequencies of the realm of Spirit to be transmitted and translated into the world of physical form. Sleeping with a Clear Quartz can enhance the vividness of dreams, and holding a Clear Quartz will often deepen one’s experience of meditation.
Clear Quartz can be used for almost any metaphysical purpose, including healing, consciousness expansion, chakra opening, communication with guides, past-life recall, inter-dimensional travel, polarity balancing, enhancement of meditation and dreaming, attracting and sending love, generating prosperity and just about anything else one might imagine.
It brings clarity of thought and purpose to one’s mind and heart and can assist one in overcoming confusion.
Clear Quartz encourages clarity on all levels. It can be used to enhance the communication of guides and amplify psychic abilities. It acts to stimulate and open all chakras and energy pathways in the body, allowing for a more enlightened and expansive auric field.

Clear Quartz stimulates the nervous system and the growth of fingernails and hair. It can assist in removing adhesions in the connective tissue.
Clear Quartz crystals form in many areas around the world, and each location lends its particular energies to the crystals.
Quartz from Brazil has an incredible variety of energies and forms. Brazil is the world heart of Quartz production, and the energy is noticeable in the stones themselves. Brazilian Quartz has a soft heart frequency that is excellent for healing work. It still seems to carry the ancient energies of Lemuria, which combine the frequencies of heart and mind to attune us to our own Divine Source.
