What You Should Know About Quartz
Clear quartz is one of the most common minerals. It is no coincidence that it is one of our biggest helpers and one of the minerals that is most needed on the planet right now. Just because a mineral is common, easily sourced, or abundant doesn’t mean it isn’t as special as minerals that are more rare or unusual. It just means that it has a lot of work to do.
Along with its powerful healing properties, clear quartz is also an amplifier, which means that if you use it with another mineral it will magnify the other mineral’s particular qualities. You can use this piece of information in multiple ways. It’s great to keep in mind when you are collecting minerals and you come across a specimen where quartz is growing with another mineral. Rutilated quartz is an example of this. Rutilated quartz is a beautiful crystal where very fine golden splinters or hair-like pieces of rutile grew in the clear quartz as it was forming. The energy of the quartz amplifies the energy of the rutile. You can use this principle when you are using multiple stones for healing, meditation, or a grid. Having a piece of quartz next to your piece of pyrite will only enhance the powers of the pyrite.
Keep this in mind if you are using quartz in your home. Where you place your quartz will amplify nearby objects, space, or energies. This can work to your advantage but it can also create undesirable effects if you aren’t aware. For example, if you have quartz on your desk or near your computer, the power of the quartz amplifies the energy of your computer, including electromagnetic frequencies as well as the emotional stress sometimes associated with computer work. This same principle applies to other kinds of quartz such as: rose quartz, amethyst, smokey quartz, citrine, onyx, and agate - to name just a few.
