Clear Quartz Healing Properties, Correspondences and Meanings

Hibiscus Moon Crystals 22 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:

  • piezoelectric
  • pyroelectric
  • triboluminescence

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.

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:

  • Amethyst
  • Rose Quartz
  • Citrine
  • Smokey
  • Morion

 

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!)

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, interview 11 Comments

Hi Crystal Hottie!

I’ve got another “Crystal Healer Interview” today! 

And just in case you’re not familiar with what exactly is goin’ down here today…these Crystal Healer Interview blog posts are SPECIAL. Because these are the brave souls who are DOIN’ it! These are the Crystal Hottie Change Agents.

Allow me to introduce you to crystal healing from another perspective (other than my own). So we’ve got a few Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers & Advanced Crystal Masters who are so generously sharing their stories with us.

Well, I’m excited today to introduce you to Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Wendy Becerra of Wholistic Blessings.

Wendy’s gorgeous message here is about our responsibility as Crystal Healers to share the knowledge & spread the crystal light.

She talks about her lifelong connection with crystals and how that has grown & blossomed into a budding career in energy work.

And Here’s Wendy …

♥♥♥
What brought you to the world of crystal healing?
About 10 years ago, after much of life’s “craziness”, my hubby, son, kitty and I moved from Miami and a co-worker (in the pharmacy) gave me a pendant of larimar.

This larimar provided me with calm when I suffered from anxiety. Studying this crystal and others began to open the door more and more to this possibility of crystal healing.

While I lived in Miami’s fast pace and had an overflowing amount of family and family responsibility, I really had no time to study or do what I enjoyed.

Between collecting my crystal babies and going to the park I began to heal and feel more relaxed and better able to navigate thorough my new-found identify and life without everybody else’s stuff.

What crystal has had the biggest effect on you?
Oh this one’s kind of tough.

As with many healers, one of the first crystals I purchased was amethyst, citrine, carnelian and clear quartz.

I have a complete amethyst obsession! I can’t wait to have a Huge Amethyst Cathedral.

Moldavite has a special place in my heart because it really accelerated much spiritual and expanded awareness. The best part is I don’t feel overwhelmed by its energy. There have even been times I’ve even slept with it.

My double terminated smokey Tibetan quartz has shared so much information with me while I’ve meditated. I have seen our entire galaxy and have heard the message from the collective and “the bigger picture”. It’s an enhydro and that makes it even extra special to me.

What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this crystal-path?
The peace and serenity my family, friends, and I feel in our home. Everyone says they feel so cared for and relaxed when they’re in our home.

Also, when my son comes and asks for a “crystal massage” to help him relax…simply amazing!

When I realized there is a huge amount of healing power in crystals, I was drawn to crystal gridding before I even knew it was a “thing”. Then on December 2012, I was pulled to create crystal grid for the Collective’s healing every month on the full moon.

Once I became a Reiki practitioner 5 years ago, I discovered that I loved combining crystals and Reiki together!
I can’t tell you how satisfying and fulfilling it is to see the patient’s light come back or brighten in their eyes!!!
I live for seeing the lights come on and get brighter. It’s like they’ve been plugged in again.

The patients feel as thought they have “new life”. I believe that is what has made the BIGGEST difference in my life. I must add that after they’ve been plugged in, I get a sense of peace and feel “lifted” myself.
What’s your go-to Crystal for grounding?
My favorite would be a magnetite in each hand.

My other favorites are healer’s gold (pyrite with magnetite), black tourmaline and hematite.

I tend to be a bit “flighty” and I often forget to ground. So when I feel too “in the head” I re-calibrate and get “land legs” when I hold onto these. It feels as though I put on a pair of weighted boots.
What are your BIG DREAMS now that you’ve graduated as a CCH?
I want to build a successful, and loving Crystal Reiki practice preferably an office near my home or a space in my home especially for healing, which would enable me to be close to my son.

I see myself working and volunteering with 2 causes which are very important to me:

  • Clean water for everyone
  • Crystal healing with special needs children

My son has been diagnosed with high functioning autism and takes no medicine. So working with special needs and helping parents and caretakers know that there are alternative treatments and practices with a more natural and non-gmo diet can benefit their children greatly.

My BIGGEST DREAM is to travel in an RV so my son could experience travel in a comfortable way and be able to spread crystal healing knowledge while on our travels. I believe we are here to turn on each others flames and awareness to “be the change we wish to see in the world.”
It really is up to us to unlock and open the door to these non-invasive healing modalities.
Wendy’s Bio: After 21 years of working as a certified pharmacy tech and my son’s autism diagnosis, I went in the opposite direction for natural and alternative healing. As a facilitator and conduit of healing, I’m utterly passionate about empowering others (and myself) to be healthy, strong, in peace;  the very best version of themselves (and myself) as possible.
