As the meaning of the name suggests, Clear Quartz is transparent and clear to white-colored. It also goes by the name Rock Crystal. The meaning of Clear Quartz is healing and spiritual growth.
The Master Healer
The Clear Quartz Stone comes from the Greek word for ice and with its glacial like appearance, pure transparency, and cooling vibes, it’s no wonder that this hunk of shimmering quartz came with connotations of crystal clear mountains and frozen waters. Clear Quartz is an abundant mineral found in many far-flung corners of the earth, from Arkansas to Brazil and the vanilla cracked shores of Madagascar, this silicon dioxide-rich stone is known for its ability to absorb, store, and regulate the release of energy – exactly what you need to bring you back to a sense of balance.
Rock crystals are amazing, they come dressed in many colors and all hold a different range of power and possibility. From mystical ancient times when the world was led by magic and myth to our more modern world, Quartzes are one of the largest families of crystals carving out space in the mineral family.
But Clear Quartz is one of the purest examples and is considered to be the light bringer. It’s an amazing amplifying stone, meaning that whatever you pour into it, will pour out tenfold. The clarity of its many faces can spark memory, hone concentration, and bring your whole being back to balance. Let’s take a look at the Quartz family and in particular Clear Quartz to celebrate its crystal king status.
