Geology / History

Quartz is piezoelectric & accumulates an electric charge when mechanical stress is applied. Clear Quartz oscillates at a perfect & steady vibration this is why it is used in clocks to keep time.

Quartz (named after a Slavic word for "hard") is the most common mineral found on the surface of the Earth & the second most abundant mineral in the Earth's continental crust, after feldspar. It is made up of a continuous framework of SiO4 silicon–oxygen tetrahedra, with each oxygen being shared between two tetrahedra, giving an overall formula SiO2. A significant component of many igneous, metamorphic & sedimentary rocks. This natural form of silicon dioxide is found in an impressive range of varieties & colours. 

Metaphysical Properties

The master healer, one of our most powerful healing & energy amplifiers on the planet because of its unique helical spiral crystalline form. Excellent for identifying, unlocking & releasing blockages. A wonderful enlightenment tool that works on all levels of self-discovery & expansion. Aids memory retention & facilitates the downloading of ancient universal knowledge.

Clear Quartz helps us make the right decision by removing doubt, this clears the mind & allows intuition to shine through.
