It’s second most abundant mineral in the Earth’s crust after feldspar–which Labradorite and Moonstone are made up of.
Quartz is nothing but silicon-oxygen tetrahedra (a polyhedron made up of four triangular with three of the faces meeting up at the vertex).
In English, it means that oxygen is shared between two tetrahedra giving it the formula SiO2. There are many, many varieties of quartz and many are semi-precious gemstones.
Quartz comes in many colors and varieties.
The most common is clear quartz.
There is smokey quartz, citrine, amethyst, blue quartz, rose quartz, milky quartz, ametrine, (citrine and amethyst), aventurine, cat’s eye, prasiolite (green quartz), rutilated quartz, tourmilated quartz.
Herkimer Diamonds are quartz crystals that are double terminated–meaning having two points, and these occur naturally and look like diamonds. They are found primarily in the Herkimer mines in New York and the Mohawk River area.
Clear Quartz is called the Master Healer by many due to it’s ability to amplify energy and thought as well as the effects of other crystals and minerals and metals. It’s nature’s own power cord you can plug into. It absorbs, stores, releases, and regulates energy.
It blocks negative energy, neutralizes radiation of all kinds, balances and restores the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. It cleanses, enhances and restores the organs and subtle bodies. Quartz is a deep soul cleanser that connects the physical dimension into the mental.
It powers up your psychic abilities and helps you to concentrate. It helps your to remember and boosts up your immune system. It balances all chakras and aligns your spiritual and emotional bodies into balance.
I have plenty of clear quartz in my store as well as other varieties. I can design any type of custom jewelry with any type of quartz. Feel free to browse my online store for examples of my work.
