Clear Quartz Healing Properties, Correspondences and Meanings

Hibiscus Moon Crystals 24 Comments

Alright, clear quartz is our focus today. Some also call this colorless form of quartz, “Rock quartz”.

I’m covering the healing properties, correspondences, and meanings plus the SCIENCE right here in this blog for you.

Here we go:

Sometimes this mineral masterpiece is overlooked because of its abundant supply and its apparent simplicity.

Well, don’t let that fool you!  I’m here to tell why clear quartz is such a valuable crystal to have in your crystal collection.

In fact, I’ve even referred to it in the past as one of the most powerful crystals to work with. Here’s why.

Clear Quartz Metaphysical Properties

This stone is highly regarded for its crystal-clear clarity and powerful crystal healing properties. Here are some of those properties:

  • amplification
  • radiates energy
  • energy conductor
  • clarifier
  • purifying
  • most versatile
  • abundant supply

Clear quartz is your general, all-around FANTABULOUS crystal to have on hand being it’s extremely versatile for all sorts of crystal energy work. It’s sort of an all-purpose stone as well as an amplifier.

So, that means it can make any other crystal work that you’re doing even more effective by amplifying the energy.

Additionally, it’s a clarifier which means that it can help you gain clarity of mind. For example, if you need to meditate on something or you need clarity around a certain subject — clear quartz is a great stone to have on hand for that.

Scientific Properties

This special mineral possesses both electrical properties and heat resistance. Why’s that important? Well, that makes quartz ideal for so many technological uses! It has some impressive physical properties that make it a powerhouse energy conductor.

Properties such as:

Some super sensitive people can even experience a physical jolt from its electrical voltage potential in their hand when holding or squeezing a clear quartz crystal.

All of these scientific properties; plus, my personal experience and research… as well as the findings of my students, lead me to the belief that quartz is the most powerful crystal to work with.

I’ve seen these crystals help transform lives, firsthand, while also acting as a catalyst for big transformation.

Quartz Geology

Silicon dioxide, (SiO2) aka silica, aka quartz, is part of the trigonal crystal system with a hexagonal crystal structure; hence why, a well-formed quartz point will be six-sided.

It has a Mohs hardness of 7, making it a relatively durable mineral.

Although there are many lovely cut and polished pieces, it’s quite easy to find a natural point formation in clear quartz (which is what I prefer for energy work.)

Where does quartz come from?

Clear Quartz, in the form of silica, is the most abundant mineral on Mama Earth.  (More than 90% of our planet’s crust is composed of silicate minerals.) I feel like that’s no coincidence… that quartz, in all its many forms—rose quartz, amethyst, citrine, green aventurine, clear quartz— is so accessible to us; both plentiful and relatively low-cost.

In fact, I live relatively close to a beach made up of almost 100% quartz sand, Siesta Key. The energy there is AMAZING!  (Most of the beaches in SW Florida have a very high silica content. No wonder I’m so attracted to this place!)

Clear quartz is widely available on the planet so I’m not going to list all the various places where it can be found.

However, in my humble opinion, the highest quality and also the most powerful quartz I’ve worked with comes from the Mt. Ida region of Arkansas.

A few years back, my hubby and I hit the road to Arkansas for an RV Mining experience. I vlogged our bucket list experience over here: The Best Crystal Mining Adventure Ever! 

Quartz Formations

Perhaps because it’s so abundant and grows in so many various types of environments, clear quartz has had the freedom and opportunity to form in many different configurations. (Let alone other shades of quartz… which will get to later in this post). In The Book of Stones alone there are over fifteen variations of clear quartz formations. I could go on here all day with the many quartz formations, but I’ll just stick to a few of most asked about forms here and then…

if you’d like to dig deeper (see what I did there?), I have a special Class Elective available for you right now that I think you’d be quite interested in right here: Crystal Formations.

OK, let’s take a look at some of these formations:

1.  Record Keepers:

Recordkeepers are said to hold sacred information.  A record-keeper crystal is when a triangle (indented or raised, facing upwards or downwards) appears on one of the crystal’s facets. You may see triangles in rubies because they easily form there… but those are not considered to be true record keepers).

I feel very strongly that crystal record keepers offer us so much information and an opportunity for us to access it in a very special way. Recordkeepers have a deep connection to sacred geometry, which inherently carries deeply-coded and profound info for us.

2.  Double Terminated Quartz:

Basically, a double-terminated quartz is complete perfection!!!

They’ve reached a terminated point on each end having grown free from any of the rock matrix. I most often use these specimens to direct energy in two directions at once. This is perfect for clearing a blockage of energy between two chakras.

If you hold one of these formations in each hand while totally relaxing, you’ll notice it will actually help your meditation practice. Give it a try!

You can also use one on the third eye or the crown of your head to connect you with your higher self and to Source Energy during meditation.

3. Enhydro Quartz:

Enhydro means that there is water (or some other usually liquid substance) enclosed within a bubble. The exciting thing about these bubbles is when you tilt the crystal back and forth and you see that liquid sloshing back and forth in its little tiny cave.

Here’s a verrry old video I did featuring an enhydro crystal:

It’s also fascinating to think that the water trapped inside a crystal became encased there millions of years ago when the crystal formed!

Enhydros are great to work with when we want to cleanse, purify and clear out energy of any sort.

The marked areas on this crystal are pointing out enhydro bubbles of water within the double-terminated point. This was a SWEET piece!

Other Types of Quartz

Now, there’s also an endless list of quartz that doesn’t fall into the clear category. This includes popular stones that hold their own metaphysical and healing properties such as:

Chakra Association

As I teach in my Certified Crystal Healer Course, a natural clear quartz point is ideal for directing energy to bring a chakra back into balance.

I also mentioned above, placing a double-terminated quartz between the chakras is very effective in facilitating energetic flow and removing blockages between chakras.

Clear quartz is a multipurpose tool can be used to raise your vibration on all levels. Therefore, it’s useful across the board for all the chakras.

However, if I had to pick one chakra that clear quartz resonates with the most, I would say it best matches the light frequencies of the crown chakra.

Grid with Clear Quartz

I often add clear quartz to any crystal grid that I’m creating, again, to AMPLIFY the energy and clearly my communicate my intention to Source Energy,  thereby making my crystal grid the most effective manifestation tool it can be!

If you want to learn more about crystal gridding, I’ve written a best selling book on crystal grids that you can find here.

I hope you enjoyed this clear quartz spotlight!  What’s your story with clear quartz?  Do you sometimes forget you have it and overlook it for fancier or more colorful stones?  Please share your opinion and experiences in the comments below.

May the Quartz be with you, (gotta sneak in my beloved Star Wars references where I can!)

  1. In your stream on quartz 8/28/2019
    You incorrectly stated that beach sand on the gulf coast is largely quartz.

    In Florida all beach sand is actually trucked from inland. Locations such as limestone quarries and other mining operations and soil from digging in construction are used along with digging to create locations to store water from lake O to prevent blue/green algae from water releases into the Caloosahatchee River.
    Most “beach sand” washes away on an annual basis so each year replenished “sand” is trucked in for most beach areas.
    Please cease misleading your students that the beaches are real beach sand.

      Hey Alfretta, you’re correct in that some beach sand in certain highly-populated areas go through beach replenishment… unfortunately. I’m not a fan. However, I have to disagree. I don’t feel I’m misleading anyone at all.

      There are MANY untouched areas all around our area here — most of our islands aren’t even accessible by car (thank goodness!) and they are 100% natural and pristine and indeed maintain their quartz sand as intended by nature. 🙂 Geology was part of my specialty for my Master of Science degree so I love digging in and talking about this!

  2. What is the best for anxiety and depression also we’re so you get your crystals from I’m in Australia and I order from eBay so it’s hard to know if they are real thanks
    Hope you are all safe xo

  4. Your blog made my day. Clear quartz crystals, especially tabular, double terminated, self healed and time portal crystals truly fascinate me. My newest little wand crystal is all of the above plus it has two time portal little ones near one termination, and its from Arkansas! This crystal is as clear as an alpine lake. I am still learning about this crystal. Your enthusiasm and knowledge about such crystals helps me understand why I am so drawn to them.

  5. Thank You SO much for this info re clear quartz crystals.. A friend gifted a necklace with a single clear quartz point saying the woman she purchased it from reco’ed it. I lol’ed!! In that, I tend to refrain from utilizing JUST Clear Quartz Crystals without other crystals ~ partic.when my personal energies are “extra active.” I am prone to freezing up electronics when in proximity!! 😇
