|Quartz is a Silicon dioxide mineral that forms in translucent masses, grains and druzy clusters. It was first referred to as “Crystallus” in 77 AD by Pliny the Elder-a naval and army commander and renowned philosopher of the Early Roman Empire. The name Quartz comes from the Greek word for ice, as they believed it to be extremely frozen water that would never thaw. In Japan it was known as the “perfect jewel”, and was a special symbol of purity, perseverance, patience, and infinite space.
Quartz played a key role in the development of ancient civilizations like Atlantis, Mu, Og, Zu and Lemuria. The stone was clearly revered by these civilizations for its range of healing and consciousness expanding properties and contributed greatly to their development. Quartz quickly became a spiritual and magical staple in all known spiritual and mystical civilizations such as the Egyptians, Mayans, Celts, Aztecs and Native American Indians. The reason for this was because this stone was quickly understood to be a tool of such immense energetic power.
The ancient Lemurians understood that Quartz can be used to open the chakra systems and to advance spiritually to higher levels of consciousness. It was also known that Quartz can be of great help to enhance focus and to connect and amplify the energy of all other precious minerals. Quartz was deemed so vital to the ancient Romans that some would even go as far to present the crystal with offerings of food and drink, as this stone was surely a living being. It is said that the misuse of these crystals is what induced the destruction of these civilizations. This fact teaches us a crucial lesson- when we are working with such powerful stones we must be mindful of our intentions and perform work for the good of all in accordance with free will in order to receive the benefits associated with this crystal.
Quartz is the most abundant mineral known to our planet and is found in a wide number of varieties throughout the mineral kingdom. Clear Quartz itself has many different formations including Fairy Wand, Lemurian Seed, Laser Wand, Castle, Faden, Spirit, Dream and many more. It is also the base of an entire family of minerals including Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Citrine, Smoky Quartz, Carnelian, and Jasper. Quartz is found as an inclusion within a wide range of other stones outside of the Quartz family as well. The classic clear Quartz is colorless, sometimes clouded or with rainbow hues, often depending on the way it forms and the temperature it withstands.
Energetically, Quartz can be used to clear and stimulate all chakra systems and energy points in the body. It is especially useful in working with the heart and the third eye. When placing a Quartz crystal on the Third Eye during meditation, one will notice an increased sense of clarity and focus. This clarity and focus will allow one to achieve the “empty” state of mind necessary for effective meditative states. When the mind has been silenced to this degree, one can begin to remember and connect with one’s own innate psychic abilities.
