Appearances & Origins
One of the most abundant crystals in the world, it can develop in a wide range of environments and may present as transparent, translucent, or opaque; it may be colourless or slightly tinted in colour. The highest and purest quality Clear Quartz is the clearest and less cloudy, however, this does not affect its beauty nor energetic ability. Some of our favourite Clear Quartz is full of inclusions that really make each piece unique.
Many ancient cultures have different meanings for clear quartz, Japan naming it the ‘perfect jewel’, because they believed it symbolised peace, purity and patience. Even though quartz makes up a huge portion of the Earth’s surface, there are only three places in the world that have enough high-quality crystal to warrant mining- Brazil, Madagascar, and Mt. Ida Mountain ranges of Arkansas.
Clear Quartz is heralded for its use in many forms of modern-day technology. Did you know a Quartz watch actually has a tiny Clear Quartz tuning fork inside that keeps frequency and produces electricity helping it to tick!? It is also used to run all kinds of computers, LCDs, Cars, Satellites and even the chip in your credit card!
Chakras & Placement
While Quartz properties can connect to and aid all chakra’s, it specialises in helping to activate the crown chakra. The Crown Chakra is your energetic passageway from your basic consciousness to your Higher Self aka your spiritual antenna.
Clear Quartz is the most versatile healing stone amongst all crystals. Known as the ‘stone of power’ and the ‘master healer’, it is able to amplify energy as well as the effects of other crystals and even clear stagnant energy. It is often also used to cleanse other crystals. By placing your crystals on a large Clear Quartz Cluster, Geode or platter it helps to clear stagnant energy and charge them back to their optimum frequency. Clear Quartz has the ability to refract light and you may often find rainbow inclusions within the stone.
Place it in open-plan spaces such as Living and Dining rooms and watch as beautiful rainbows and positive energy dance around bouncing off all walls. It is beautiful and minimal in Colour and works well with all other crystals from a styling and healing perspective.
- Clear Quartz is generally known to benefit from sunlight.
- If there is some colour change, it will not affect the energy your crystal omits, however, keep an eye on your crystal.
- If you see some colour change that you prefer to avoid, place your crystal in a place where there is indirect or dappled light.
