Metaphysical & Healing Properties
Clear quartz embodies the white ray and resonates a White Spiritual Light, connecting you to your Divine mind and allowing the user to gain more clarity. In meditation it clears the mind of distractions, aids concentration and unblocks memory. It's ability to store energy (and information) is one of its defining features; it acts like a vast library (or record keeper)whilst also functioning as a regulator of such energies as it has to release.
There are many forms of Clear Quartz, each with its own particular quality, but they form the very foundation of the crystal world and have the almost chameleon like ability to adapt themselves to any intention since they can be so easily programmed by the user. This makes Clear Quartz, the most versatile of all stones.
Clear Quartz is another stone that possesses an ancient history with humanity being used by the Sumerians who cut and engraved Quartz cylinder seals which were used later as ring seals. Clear Quartz had a role to play in the advent of writing for the Sumerians used it as a canvass on which to write - presumably only the most valuable documents required the use of so highly a valued medium. It was also used as a stamp to make an impression on (the ubiquitous) clay tablets.
Egyptians also made use of Clear Quartz, fashioning beads, scarabs and other jewellery items out of it.
