One of the most common and versatile of crystals, clear quartz is also known as crystal quartz or rock crystal. If you only have one crystal in your collection, this really is the one to have.
Quartz crystals have piezoelectric properties, meaning if you vigorously rub two pieces of quartz together you may see flashes of yellowy/green light which is piezo-electricty. Hence, the quartz clock, crystal radios, microphones and radio transmitters are everyday devices which use quartz crystal energy.
Cultures from all over the world, have used clear quartz for thousands of years. Crystals balls, make from clear quartz, were said to have magical properties.
Clear quartz encompasses all of the spectrum of colours so is ideal for any chakra but especially the crown chakra. It plays an important part in crystal grids also, due to its amplification properties. Quartz absorbs EMF fields so can provide protection against background radiation near televisions, computers, wireless telephones etc… Used in meditation, quartz filters out distractions/
On a healing level, Quartz can be used for any condition as it stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance.
