The Quartz crystal is one of the most common, powerful and widely distributed minerals on the planet. It consists of oxygen and silicon (silicon dioxide), can be formed in numerous ways and occurs in most metamorphic and igneous rocks, especially in gneiss and granite. Since it resists weathering, you can also find quartz in gravels and alluvial sands.
Throughout history, Quartz has been valued by almost every civilization as far back as Lemuria and Atlantis, where the Sun’s power was believed to be harnessed via this crystal as a source of solar energy refraction. Along with the African tribes, Native Americans, Aztecs, ancient Egyptians, Scots, Romans and countless other cultures used Quartz in diagnostic healing, spiritual development and meditations, as religious objects, in funerary sites and dispelling magical and evil enchantments.
Quartz crystals are ideal metaphysical tools for healing, chakra clearing, stabilizing energy fields, enhancing psychic abilities, emotional clearing, meditation, astral projection, lucid dreaming, dream enhancement, opening the third eye and as the main component in Orgone energy devices.
Quartz occurs as prismatic hexagonal crystals in compact rock cavities and masses. Since it is abundant, quartz crystal is also super affordable. Quartz is the most versatile (and durable) of any of the crystal family. It includes a large number of gems and more variety of color choices in both non-transparent and transparent varieties.
The double terminated quartz crystal is even more powerful because it has the ability to transmit or to draw energy from both ends. While double terminated quartz crystals have amazing metaphysical abilities, you could basically use any quartz crystal with the following information.
Quartz crystals can be found all over the planet. There are three main areas in the world where they are mined: Brazil, Madagascar, and Mt. Ida in Arkansas. Some crystals contain inclusions, such as streaks, water bubbles, lines, metallic flakes, rainbows and clouds. Many spiritual teachers and healers believe that these types of inclusions actually enhance the crystals metaphysical properties. From a metaphysical standpoint, the quartz crystal represents the 5 elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Ether.
Crystals grow deep in the earth and form much of the earth’s crust, yet crystals, like the element air, allow light to pass through them. Crystals are fiery in that they have piezoelectric properties yet they are watery in their hexagonal molecular structure which resembles snowflakes, and in their ice-like appearance. Crystals are quintessential expressions of the element of Ether or Spirit, which is synonymous with Universal Life Force Energy, the fundamental energy that sustains all forms of energy in the known universe.
Quartz is a piezoelectric material, which means that if you place charges on its surface, it causes mechanical stress in the crystal and activates properties in the crystal that mechanically act like a tuning fork with a natural resonant frequency. A Lemurian Seed Quartz crystal is an integral component of Orgone energy devices because once the resin cures around the crystal, those piezoelectric properties are activated and the Quartz functions as a full time, activated oscillator, stabilizing the surrounding energies that have been drawn into the device. The metals/copper then repel out that transformed, balanced and stabilized lifeforce energy. Orgone device benefits include sleep improvement, lucid dreamscapes, balancing mood, more energy, helping with EMF emissions, deepening meditation periods and help with visualizations/intentions/manifestation potentials.
The Quartz crystal is available virtually everywhere on the planet. Either natural or tumbled, they’re extremely powerful tools in clearing ones chakras, healing, meditation, spiritual growth, and generally balancing and toning the whole body’s electromagnetic field.
By nature, the quartz crystal stabilizes and stores electromagnetic energy so well that it is used in television and radio communication as well as computers which couldn’t function at all without these crystals.
Crystals actually grow in the Earth, although this growth process is very slow indeed. Their growth began around 200 million years ago when water and quartz became mixed under perfect conditions of pressure and heat.
Nature has placed vast deposits of these crystals in the deep levels under the Earth in strategic locations and these deposits help to regulate the energy of our planet. Some also postulate that Quartz crystals are the “Akashic record” holders of the Earth, as they have much memory storage capacity.
Quartz crystals vibrate at a very controlled vibratory rate and, (as many people don’t realize), the vibrations can be amplified, controlled, and transmitted by the human mind. According to many metaphysical beliefs, with concentrated intention we can transmit the power of Quartz crystals to bring healing energy to ourselves and others.
Ultimately, the body heals itself; it’s made that way. The point of all healing processes, non-medical or medical, is to make the conditions better so the body can heal itself easier. Quartz can help to balance the energy of the body to ease the tension.
Once you have your Quartz crystal, you can clear it of all the vibrations and influences it has picked up along the way. Some hold it under running water for at least one minute while visualizing the water washing away all the impure vibrations it has picked up. Other ways that I recommend and utilize are a good sun cleanse, a moon charge, and then letting them sit in an Orgone accumulator while playing healing musical frequencies like 528Hz, 432 Hz, Solfeggio frequencies and Tibetan Singing Bowls. Some people also bury it in the ground for 24 hours. Thus, the crystal absorbs the Earth’s energy and it strengthens its power.
Quartz crystals are gifts from the Creator and the Earth, and we are lucky to have them and wise to utilize them!
