Everything you need to know about Quartz crystals

Facts about the quartz crystal

Composed of silicon dioxide, quartz crystal belongs to the group of oxides. It is formed by the slow crystallisation of acidic terminal magmas and has a hexagonal crystallisation.

Its hardness is seven on the Mohs scale - quartz stone can grate steel.

The highest quality clear quartz specimens are usually transparent as ice, although they may have whitish clouds and infused with other minerals, such as rutile (rutilated quartz), mica sheets, tourmaline crystals and air bubbles.

It is also part of granites, quartz pyrites, pegmatites and more. Clear quartz crystal is one of the minerals most used by those providing natural healing therapies.

It is undoubtedly one of the most powerful healers, cleansers and amplifiers.

It can be used as tools to balance the body's energy; helps focus and amplify physical, mental and emotional energy.

Quartz crystals can be placed anywhere in the body where energy needs to be replenished.

According to Judy Hall, Author of The Crystal Bible and The Encyclopedia of Crystals, 'Quartz is the most powerful healing and energy amplifier on the planet because of its unique helical spiral crystalline form. Found worldwide, it absorbs, stores, releases, and regulates energy and is excellent for unblocking it. When acupuncture needles are coated in Quartz, the effects increase by ten per cent.'
