Clear Quartz, the Perfect Jewel…

Clear Quartz 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. Throughout history, clear quartz has been valued by nearly every civilization as far back as Atlantis and Lemuria. Native American Indians, African tribes, ancient Egyptians, Aztecs, Romans, Scots and countless other cultures used clear quartz for healing, meditation, spiritual development, as religious objects and in funerary rites, and to dispel evil and magical enchantments.

The same properties of energy amplification, programming, 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, and attracting love or prosperity. But with this power comes responsibility. To benefit from Rock Crystal’s blessings, one must feel in harmony with it and deserve its gifts. The legendary cities of Atlantis and Lemuria were believed to use clear quartz as a source of rejuvenation and for the complete development of their civilizations of incredible power and splendor. Its misuse is also believed to be the reason for their destruction.

Clear quartz is excellent for amplifying the energies of other stones or to enhance groups of stones and is ideal for making crystal grids. In feng shui, clear Quartz crystal is the perfect energy disperser in any window. As a natural prism, they take light and energy from the sun and disperse it freely within the room.

Quartz honors Gaia, the Greek Earth Mother Goddess; Kundalini, the Hindu Life Force Goddess; Latona, the Roman Goddess of Light; Gendenwitha, the Morning Star Goddess of the Iroquois; and Ixcuiname, the Mayan Goddess of the Four Ages of Women.

In ancient Rome where 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.

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.

The Japanese call clear quartz “tama,” meaning “the perfect jewel.” It is a symbol of purity, infinity, 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.
