Clear quartz is the most iconic of the quartz family. One of the most abundant minerals in the world, clear quartz can develop in a wide range of environments and can be found on every continent. For this reason, quartz is tied into the lore of many ancient cultures from around the world. The term “quartz” comes from the Greek word for “ice.” Ancient Greek philosophers like Theophrastus believed that the transparent stone was a form of permanent ice, so cold, it kept from thawing. Every ancient culture had a different clear quartz meaning. In Japan, the clear quartz meaning referred to a “perfect jewel” because they believed it symbolized space, purity and patience. Indigenous North American cultures thought of the stone as a sentient being, and would gift it food as well as other offerings in respect for its clear quartz meaning. Both cultures in the Australia and South America have a similar quartz meaning within their creation myths that describes a cosmic serpent, the creator of life, who was being led by a quartz crystal. To cultures in Central and South America, the quartz meaning was that of a vessel. They believed that the spirits of their ancestors were held in clear quartz like an urn for spirits. They carved the clear quartz stone into the shape of a human skull, and used it as a religious talisman. In Scotland and Ireland, quartz crystals were carved into spheres. They believed clear quartz had the metaphysical ability to heal ailments in their cattle. Today, different metaphysical attributes are given to the stone.
Clear Quartz Meaning
This prismatic crystal has a hardness score of 7. That makes it extremely durable, and apt for a wide range of uses. Sand that is composed of broken down quartz is one of the main components of glass, but it’s the tech industry that takes advantage of the programmability of quartz. Used in frequency controls and electronic circuits, quartz can be found in cell phones, television receivers, computers and more. The LCD screens found on tablets, laptops and televisions actually stands for liquid crystal display. To create that, a layer of liquid crystal is placed between transparent electrodes to affect reflectivity and the transmission of light.
The hexagonal structured system of the crystal is, at a cellular level, made up of silicon dioxide. Just as the human body is comprised of silicon dioxide, the earth’s crust consists of 12% silicon dioxide. Many believe that this similarity in cellular composition accounts for the interactive communication between gemstones like quartz and the human body.
A scientist at IBM, Marcel Vogel, has studied the connection between human emotion and the molecular structure of crystals. He believed that the crystal’s cellular formation was susceptible to change depending on what he was thinking at the time. According to Vogel, the crystal reacts to your “program” and mirrors it in its own composition.
Clear Quartz Healing Properties
Quartz properties like amplification and programmability, are essential to manifesting intentions. To program the quartz with your intentions, hold it in the palm of your hand, and focus on what you want to transfer into the crystal. The crystal’s memory will download your intentions, and help to manifest those goals through its ability to amplify in the same way it does in technological devices. However, quartz healing properties will amplify any energy surrounding or being put into it, so making sure to occasionally cleanse the stone is important in order to maintain a positive energy.
While the quartz properties can connect with and aid all chakras, giving it a reputation as a master healer, it is especially helpful for activating the crown chakra. This chakra controls how we think about and perceive situations. Quartz can help open up the mind and elevate negative perspectives to a more enlightened point of view. Its metaphysical purposes are vast, from helping to expand consciousness to facilitating open communication and stimulating the chakras. For those needing clarity of mind, clear quartz healing properties will eliminate energy blockages and allow energy to flow smoothly throughout the body.
While no zodiac sign has a direct quartz meaning, this crystal has been known to temper the stubbornness of Capricorns and the power lust of Leos. To use this crystal as an element of Feng Shui in the home, place in an area like a window sill. The amplification quality of the quartz will radiate the positive energy pulled in from the sun and the moon into the rest of the room.
For meditating with the quartz, one can either implement their own intentions into a mantra, or use a mantra to solidify the meditation after transferring their intentions into the crystal. A fun mantra to use with quartz is: “I am crystal clear on my intentions and goals.” Repeating this during meditation strengthens the will of your purpose and helps in visualizing your objectives. Lay down, and set the clear quartz on the third eye to establish clarity and ease of flow into in the crown chakra.

Healing with Clear Quartz
♥ Harmony ♥ Energy ♥ Healing ♥ Psychic abilities ♥ Clarity ♥ Calmness
Clear Quartz is known as the “master healer” and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz draws off negative energy of all kinds, neutralizing background radiation, including electromagnetic smog or petrochemical emanations. It balances and revitalizes the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory. Stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Clear Quartz (Crystal Quartz, Rock Crystal) harmonizes all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.
Ordinary yet extraordinary, colorful and clear, Quartz crystals are the most common and abundant in the world, comprising the largest and most diverse family in the mineral kingdom. “From ancient times to the present day, quartz crystals have been a source of Light to mankind. Highly valued by spiritual leaders and healers as well as scientists, the unique attributes of quartz have played a key role in mankind’ evolutionary development.”
Composed of silicon and oxygen (silicon dioxide), Quartz, from the European “quarz”, is a key component in a wide array of minerals designated as “silicates.” It occurs as prismatic hexagonal crystals in compact masses and druses, as well as in dense fibrous or grainy formations without visible crystals. It is also an important mineral element in common rock such as granite, quartzite and gneiss, and in sedimentary conglomerates like sandstone.
For all its variety, when most people speak of “crystals”, they are usually referring to Rock Crystal (Clear Quartz), the six-sided prisms of pure light and energy known as the Perfect Jewel. In its sparkling light is contained the entire color spectrum.
In the metaphysical world, Clear Quartz crystals are the supreme gift of Mother Earth. Even the smallest is imbued with the properties of a master healer teacher. Ancients believed these stones to be alive, taking a breath once every hundred years or so, and many cultures thought them to be incarnations of the Divine.
Today’s healers agree, believing crystals are living beings, incredibly old and wise, and willing to communicate when an individual is open and ready to receive. Wearing, carrying or meditating with a Clear Quartz crystal opens the mind and heart to higher guidance, allowing the realm of Spirit to be transmitted and translated into the world of physical form.
Resonating at the level of an individual’s needs, Clear Quartz also amplifies whatever energy or intent is programmed into it, and continues to broadcast that energy throughout the world and into the etheric realms. This may accelerate the fulfillment of one’s prayers, intensify healing or spiritual growth, or simply allow the crystal to hold a pattern of energy long enough and strongly enough for the manifestation of a goal to occur.
“Quartz crystals are the manifestation of the Creator’s finest hour of expression. They are windows of light with many facets which show the myriad dimensions of life created from cosmic dust in an ever expanding universe. Divine plan as foreordained that all expanding life revolve around one common denominator, quartz crystal. Through frozen solidified light all creation could be monitored and assisted through the evolutionary process.
Clear Quartz, pure silicon dioxide, is also called Rock Crystal or Ice Crystal, from the Greek word “krystallos”, meaning “ice”, because crystal was believed to be water frozen so hard it could never thaw. The prismatic hexagonal crystals have relatively smooth sides and naturally facetted terminations at one or both ends, and may be transparent as glass, milky or striated, often found in clusters and ranging in all sizes. The terminations have different facet shapes depending on the rate at which they were formed, and these shapes are deeply significant.
Throughout history, Clear Quartz has been valued by nearly every civilization as far back as Atlantis and Lemuria, where the sun’s power was believed to be harnessed through a crystal as a source of solar energy refraction. They, along with Native American Indians, African tribes, ancient Egyptians, Aztecs, Romans, Scots and countless other cultures used Clear Quartz in diagnostic healing, meditations and spiritual development, as religious objects and in funerary rites, and to dispel evil and magical enchantments.
Quartz Uses and Purposes – Overview
Quartz crystal is valued for its piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties, by which it can transform mechanical pressure or heat into electromagnetic energy, and vice versa. Its ability to focus, amplify, store and transform energy is used throughout the technology world in ultrasound devices, watches, microphones, radio transmitters and receivers, memory chips in computers and other electronic circuitry.
The same properties of energy amplification, programmability and memory also make Clear Quartz the most versatile and multidimensional stone in the mineral kingdom for healing, meditation, expansion of consciousness, communication with guides, past-life recall, attracting love or prosperity, or virtually any purpose. However, with this power comes responsibility. To benefit from Rock Crystal’s blessings, one must feel in harmony with it and deserve its gifts. Intent other than for good inevitably brings harm back on oneself.
Clear Quartz is excellent for amplifying the energies of other stones or to enhance groups of stones, and is ideal for gridding. It is the perfect base material for wands, staffs, templates, etc., and clear crystal spheres have long been used for crystal gazing.
For ongoing personal energy, carry Clear Quartz as a tumble stone or touch as needed for an instant lift. Add Quartz crystals to bath water, or make an elixir to drink or splash on pulse points by soaking Clear Quartz crystals in water from first light to midday. In the workplace, use as a filter against negativity and to transform critical words. Crystals are professional support stones for artists, stylists, doctors and healers, inventors, musicians, and those who work in media.
Clear Quartz produces a force field of healing negative ions while clearing the surroundings of positive ions, protecting the aura. It dispels static electricity, and cancels out the harmful effects of radiation and radioactivity.
Clear Quartz brings strength and clarity to the intellect, aiding concentration and memory retention, and filtering out distractions. Its hypnotic quality is conducive to sleep, helping one to understand the messages and lessons conveyed during the dream state. It is also a respected stone for death, included in many cultures in funeral rites and placed in tombs, urns, and sepulchers.
As an energy saver, Clear Quartz attached to the fuel line in a car is reputed to reduce fuel consumption.
Quartz Physical Healing Energy
Clear Quartz is a master healer crystal, and may be used for any condition. It is thought to stimulate the immune and circulatory systems, enhancing energy flow and bringing the body into balance. It has been used to treat migraine headaches, vertigo, in stabilizing dizziness or motion sickness, and is believed to assist with metabolism, exhaustion, and weight loss.
A Crystal elixir taken internally has been used to eliminate toxins from the system and to aid in the treatment of digestive disorders, kidney and bladder infections, and to cure diarrhea. The indirect method of preparation is recommended.
Clear Quartz soothes painful or injured areas, especially burns, by drawing away pain and eliminating blistering. A topical elixir is also beneficial in treating skin disorders.
Quartz Emotional Healing Energy
Clear Quartz acts as a deep soul cleanser, purifying and enhancing the body’s internal structure and surrounding subtle bodies to connect the physical dimension with the mind. It focuses on inner negativity and stimulates positive thoughts and feelings in its place. With a better perception of the world, Quartz increases awareness and clarity in thinking, and provides enhanced energy, perseverance and patience, teaching one to live, laugh and love with all of humanity.
Quartz Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy
Because Clear Quartz has the prismatic ability to vibrate its energy at all of the color frequencies, it not only harmonizes all of the chakras, but can teach us how to vibrate our seven chakra centers simultaneously while maintaining perfect alignment with the light.
Clear Quartz is particularly useful for stimulating the Crown Chakra. The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head, and is our gateway to the expanded universe beyond our bodies. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It is the fountainhead of our beliefs and the source of our spirituality. It connects us to the higher planes of existence and is the source of universal energy and truth. When the Crown is in balance, our energies are in balance. We know our place in the universe and see things as they are. We are unruffled by setbacks, knowing they are an essential part of life.
Quartz Spiritual Energy
Like humans, each Clear Quartz crystal is unique, each with its own personality, lessons, and experiences. The crystals attracted into one’s life are stones that will in some way help facilitate personal growth and awareness. They may work subliminally in unawakened minds, but for those spiritually attuned to the universe Quartz crystals are like beacons of light and positive energy to be used in daily thoughts, feelings, words and actions and integrated onto the earth.
As a connection between the physical dimension and the spiritual, Clear Quartz enhances communication with plants, animals, minerals, and in speaking with and receiving information from the Divine and other-worldly masters, teachers and healers. Its natural tendency is for harmony and brings a sense of purpose to those who resonate with it.
Quartz Color Energy
Quartz is the crystal connection to the infinite octaves of light. Quartz encompasses the Universal Life Force manifested in light. It is the pure White Light of creation manifested in crystalline perfection. It is the higher state of Light, a looking glass of the soul, and the reflection of the Light beings blessings on mankind.
Meditation with Quartz
Used in meditation, especially when placed at the Third Eye, Clear Quartz filters out distractions and helps to empty the mind. It allows for a feeling of “oneness” and provides for a deep meditative state.
By visualizing an image of one’s intent or desired outcome within the crystal during a meditative session, Clear Quartz provides a powerful psychic amplification. The crystal “remembers” and magnifies the pattern of energy, so using the same crystal in repeated meditations allows for the opportunities and power of the focused intent to manifest into reality. Programming the Quartz in this manner assists one in achieving virtually any goal in inner or outer life. As a note of caution, all such manifestations have their first and strongest effects on the one using the crystal, so negative purposes will inevitably bring harm back on oneself.
Quartz Goddess Crystals
Quartz honors Gaia, the Greek Earth Mother Goddess. Born directly out of Chaos, the primal emptiness, she was the first (or one of the first) beings to appear during the process of creation, and is honored as being the Earth itself.

They’re also crystals of the student and the researcher.
Transformer crystals enhance efforts to change our situations, prospects, health, outlook or relationships. By transforming ourselves we transform our lives. We learn to dance, speak a new language, grow stronger, or become a better spouse or child. Seeker crystals with the earth power of the Transformer are excellent talismans to aid our efforts to grow, develop new capabilities and change our lives.

Quartz in Ancient Lore and Legend
Since the beginning of time in nearly every culture, Clear Quartz crystals have been held sacred and magical and universally accepted as a source of power. In their creation myths the aboriginal tribes in both Australia and South America describe the image of the “cosmic serpent,” the progenitor of all life, being led and guided by a Quartz crystal.
The legendary cities of Atlantis and Lemuria were believed to use Clear Quartz as a source of rejuvenation, in solar energy refraction, and for the complete development of their civilizations of incredible power and splendor. Its misuse is also believed to be the reason for their destructions. Before their fall, their knowledge and secrets of the universe were said to have been programmed into Record Keeper formations of Clear Quartz to be psychically retrieved by chosen souls for future humanity and earth-healing purposes.
From ancient divination to modern crystal-gazing, clear crystal balls have long been used to find lost articles, foretell secrets of the future, forecast impending doom, and was even used at one time as a means to detect minor offences and crimes. “Scrying” has been common since the Greek and Roman periods, and crystal balls brought back by Crusaders in the Middle Ages were said to possess magical powers. The “spirits” yielding the visions were induced by powerful spells, many of which have been preserved, and contain an incongruous mixture of religious and magical formulas.
According to ancient astrologers, the portion of the month when the moon is on its increase is said to be the strongest time for scrying because of the magnetic pull between Rock Crystal and the moon. From traditional beliefs and scientific experimentation over the centuries, a good diet was recommended for crystal-gazers, as well as drinking an infusion of mugwort or chickory to improve iron levels in the blood. Boys and girls before puberty made the best seers, brunettes with dark skin charged the crystal more quickly than blondes; females, especially virgins or widows were far better than males, though once trained males were more powerful and correct.
A crystal ball known as the Currahmore Crystal in Scotland, because it is kept at the seat of that name belonging to the Marquis of Waterford, has been handed down for centuries, brought from the Holy Land in the 11th century and held in highest esteem for its power to cure cattle of diseases. Slightly larger than an orange with a silver ring around its center, it was placed in a stream and cattle were driven up and down the waters to affect the cure. Its use was not only famous around Currahmore, but requests for its loan were often made from far distant parts of Ireland. The privilege was almost always accorded, never abused, and the crystal was always returned to its rightful owner.
In ancient Rome when Rock Crystal was believed to be ice solidified over the course of long years, ladies of luxury carried crystal balls in their hands for cooling purposes during summer weather. Under the Lower Empire crystal rings were also used for the same purpose. These were solid, carved out of a single stone, and had the face engraved with an intaglio as a signet.
Rock Crystal was also ascribed the power of producing the Sacred Fire, the fire most grateful to the gods. Laid upon wood chips in the sun, it produced first smoke then flames. It was also used to burn the skin as a means of cauterization.
Clear Quartz has forever carried a place of importance in spiritual and religious beliefs. The Japanese call it tama, “the perfect jewel.” It is a symbol of purity, the infinity of space, of patience and perseverance. The smaller Rock Crystals were believed to be the congealed breath of the White Dragon, while the larger and more brilliant ones were said to be the saliva of the Violet Dragon. The dragon, emblematic of the highest powers of creation, shows the esteem by which many of the Oriental cultures place on this stone.
In Hindu mythology a wonderful tank formed of crystal was provided by the god Maya. Its bottom and sides were encrusted with pearls and in the center was a raised platform blazing with precious stones. The transparent crystal produced such an illusion of water that those approaching the tank were tempted to plunge into the clear, fresh water for a refreshing bath.
Quartz crystal is referenced in many religions as foundation jewels in mystic cities, trees of life, in homage to deities and worn by their prophets for power. Clear Quartz is one of the seven precious substances of Buddhism, and is perhaps the “diamond” listed in the second row of the Breastplate of the High Priest in the Bible. Ancient priests used Clear Quartz to render negative energy useless, to dissolve enchantments and spells, and to destroy all black magic.
Indigenous cultures in North America and Burma believed Clear Quartzes to be living entities and presented them with food as ritual offerings. The Cherokee Indians, for example, believed Rock Crystal to have great power to aid in hunting and divining, and one owner was reputed to keep his crystal wrapped up in buckskin and hidden in a sacred cave. At designated times he would take it out and “feed” it by rubbing it over the blood of a deer.
In Central and South American cultures, Quartz crystals carved in the shapes of human skulls were venerated as powerful religious objects, the dwellings of deceased ancestors or gods. An ancient Mayan legend claims there were thirteen sacred crystal skulls hidden in different places and must all be found and brought together before the December 21, 2012 when the Mayan calendar cycle ends or Earth will be knocked off its axis.
Nearly every culture extolled the virtues of Clear Quartz for medicinal healing. It was used in Rome and medieval England for cases of dysentery and colic, for glandular swelling, pain, and held against the tongue to reduce fever and slake thirst. It was also reputed to be astringent, to produce an abundance of milk, good for gout and for breaking up stones in the body. In the Scottish Highlands, a crystal set in silver and worn around the neck was considered effective for diseases of the kidneys.
At one time or another, Clear Quartz was carved and used for vases, cups and ornaments, worn as a symbol of high rank and placed in tombs and scepters of royalty, valued as amulets for magical powers, rain-making, lighting sacrificial fires, and was the original “glass” of windows, beads and spectacles.
Sir Isaac Newton discovered the color spectrum by refracting sunlight through a natural crystal. Reflecting the rainbow on his wall allowed him to measure the different lengths of the rays of the visible light spectrum.

You do not have to be psychic to connect to the energy of a clear quartz crystal, you just need to be curious and open-minded. Even though on a molecular level crystals are solid matter made of a continuous rhythm of identical patterns, each crystal is unique and beautiful.
The clear quartz crystal comes in many forms—from tumbled rocks and small points to impressive big clusters and generators. You can also find little souvenirs or sculptures made of clear quartz, as well as, of course, clear quartz jewelry. Most of the clear quartz crystals on the market come from Brazil, the U.S., and China.
So what is special about the clear quartz crystal? And how do you use it for your healing, in jewelry, or for good feng shui in your home?
One distinctive ability of the clear quartz is that you can program the crystal with your intent. You can also charge it with specific energy, be it from nature or people.
To program a crystal with intent means the crystal will hold specific thoughts or a quality of energy that you ask it to hold. To charge it with energy from nature, for example, means the crystal will absorb and carry the energy you take it to in any natural spot that you want to feel connected to—be it a rainforest, a jungle, or your favorite spot on the beach.
Another distinctive ability of the clear quartz crystal is the ability to clear/wash/purify the energy around it. This is why, for example, you can place your jewelry on a crystal cluster and feel it cleansed after a couple of hours.
Feng Shui Properties
In feng shui, clear quartz is used for its ability to hold and transmute light, as well as to cleanse/purify the energy. Clear quartz can be used extensively as a feng shui cure in any Bagua area that needs clearing and can benefit from the earth feng shui element of the crystal.
A clear quartz cluster in the living room can be a beautiful remedy to create more harmony in the family, while smooth, clear tumbled crystals can bring freshness and light to your altar, for example. A round faceted clear quartz is used as a feng shui crystal cure for a variety of feng shui situations, from a direct door alignment to a dark corner with stagnant energy.
Placement for Good Feng Shui
Unless you have a big clear quartz cluster, you can freely place the clear quartz anywhere you feel the need to. Be sure to cleanse your crystals often, and don’t be shy to experiment and move them from place to place. You might feel the need to have several points in your Creativity Bagua area, for example, and then a couple of months down the road you will sense the need to move them close to your front door. Trust your feelings and listen to your crystals.
If you have a big crystal clear cluster, then it is best to place it in a Bagua area that has the Earth feng shui element as either the governing element or the nourishing one.
It is always good to have several clear quartz tumbled crystals, as they can travel with you anywhere (in your pocket, purse, or car), as well as a move to different areas of your home. Clusters are excellent for any family, just be sure not to place a crystal cluster too close to the bed. Crystal points are good for healing and redirecting of energy.

APPEARANCE & ORIGINS
One of the most abundant crystals in the world, it can develop in a wide range of environments and may present as transparent, translucent, or opaque; it may be colorless or slightly tinted in color. The highest and purest quality Clear Quartz is the most clear and less cloudy, however this does not affect its beauty nor energetic ability. Some of my favourite Clear Quartz is full of inclusions that really make each piece unique. Many ancient cultures have different meanings for clear quartz, Japan naming it the ‘perfect jewel’, because they believed it symbolized peace, purity and patience. Even though quartz makes up a huge portion of the Earth’s surface, there are only three places in the world that have enough high quality crystal to warrant mining- Brazil, Madagascar, and Mt. Ida Mountain ranges of Arkansas. Clear Quartz is heralded for its use in many forms of modern day technology. Did you know a Quartz watch actually has a tiny Clear Quartz tuning fork inside that keeps frequency and produces electricity helping it to tick!? It is also used to run all kinds of computers, LCDS, Cars, Satellites and even the chip in your credit card!
CHAKRAS & PLACEMENT
While Quartz properties can connect to and aid all chakras, it specializes in helping to activate the crown chakra. The Crown Chakra is your energetic passageway from your basic consciousness to your Higher Self aka your spiritual antenna. Clear Quartz is the most versatile healing stone amongst all crystals. Known as the ‘stone of power’ and the ‘master healer’, it is able to amplify energy as well as the effects of other crystals and even clear stagnant energy. It is often also used to cleanse other crystals. By placing your crystals on a large Clear Quartz Cluster, Geode or platter it helps to clear stagnant energy and charge them back to their optimum frequency. Clear Quartz has the ability to refract light and you may often find rainbow inclusions within the stone. Place it in open plan spaces such as Living and Dining rooms and watch as beautiful rainbows and positive energy dance around bouncing off all walls. It is beautiful and minimal in Colour and works well with all other crystals from a styling and healing perspective.

There are a few things regarding sunlight exposure to keep in mind when placing your crystals in the Home & Workspace. Sun exposure can cause fading to your crystals as well as make them more brittle or extremely hot. Clear Quartz is generally known to benefit from sunlight. Colour change will not affect the energy your crystal omits, however keep an eye on them and if you see some colour change that you prefer to avoid place your stone in a place where there is indirect or dappled light.
