2 More Cool Crystal Properties to Prove that Crystal Energy Ain’t No Scam!

2 Cool Properties _ FI #1

A while ago I wrote a blog post answering the question:

“Is the power of crystals & quartz energy a scam?”

This is that post.

Well, my usual MO on questions like these is to simply throw some science at it. That usually gets the skeptics to sit up & listen. 😉

quartz properties

In that post, I dove deep into piezoelectricity; a scientific property of quartz crystals that explains 1 way they give off energy.

That blog post certainly was (surprisingly to me)…a big hit!

What I thought would be a topic that would sort of quietly disappear into internet wasteland (yeah… I needed to write it anyway simply b/c it brings me so much joy to share the sparkly musings in my head)…with me blissfully spouting off my science mumbo jumbo as I tend to do from time to time…ended up being a very popular post with it sort of getting viraly shared about…and had many of you in the comments asking for more info about the other scientific properties of quartz that I had mentioned.

Well you don’t need to ask […]

Is The Power Of Quartz A Scam?

Is the power of quartz crystals a scam?

No way! How will I prove that to you?

By throwing some science at it, of course!

Quartz is amazing in so many ways.

power of quartz energy

It makes up some of our very favorite crystals to work with:

  • clear quartz
  • amethyst
  • citrine
  • smokey quartz
  • rose quartz
  • aventurine
  • jaspers
  • ….I could go on and on

What’s so special about quartz energy?

OK, really quick we’re going to dip into some physics here. But I’ll make it painless… I swear.

Oh, c’mon… it’s not that bad.

So a wee bit ago (in the year 1880) in a Paris lab, physicist brothers Jacques and Pierre Curie (husband to Marie) made a new discovery regarding quartz crystals.

Together they found that by wiring a quartz crystal to a recording meter & striking it, they could produce an electric signal. Whoa!
Then they found that squeezing it resulted in the same. Wait! A rock crystal was making electricity here?

Well, not really making it. Crystals cannot create or generate energy, despite that popular name given to quartz crystals of a certain rare shape & size: “Generators”. But,  […]
