Besides being the most iconic and known mineral of all, Crystal Quartz is the second most abundant on earth. Part of the Quartz family, Crystal or Clear Quartz is a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 7 in the Mohs scale; and it’s usually found in Sedimentary rocks deposits but can also be found in Igneous and Metamorphic rock formations as well. Colorless, transparent and/or translucent, Crystal Quartz forms in a Trigonal/Hexagonal system, giving this beautiful mineral its iconic ‘point’ shapes.
Crystal Quartz has been the most prized semi-precious stone for stone carving and jewelry making since prehistoric times specially in Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific and Central America. Pendants, medallions, vases, figurines and even skulls have been made from this beautiful mineral by ancient Aztecs, Greeks, Persians and Australian aboriginals. In ancient Greece it was known as ‘krustallos’ as they believed this mineral to be a form of permanent cooled ice; and even the word Quartz itself comes from the German word ‘quartz’ which it’s believed to be derived from the Slavic word for ‘hard’ as ice. Today it is mainly found in Brazil, Madagascar and Arkansas, USA.
Known as one of the most powerful and yet subtle crystals by reiki and crystal healers, Crystal Quartz is believed to be linked specifically to the Crown Chakra, but because of it’s ability to be easily programmed, it can be used for bringing balance to all the chakras. It is mainly used for cleansing and purifying a person’s energy field or even a stone’s. It is highly recommended as a tool for promoting personal growth and harmony; while at the same time as a go-to crystal for enhancing the immune system and soothing headaches.
