Healing Properties of Chlorite Quartz

Spiritual: Chlorite Quartz is a powerful energy cleanser.  It can be used to purify the energy in our aura, chakras, and all meridians so that we feel vibrant and healthy.  It can be used to cut away energy blocks and remove psychic tumors that cause spiritual pain or stagnation.   Chlorite Quartz helps us to connect with our healing guides and healing power.  It  encourages us to act wisely and to know when we must help and trust ourselves, and when we are better served in seeking out other healers who have our best interest in mind.  Chlorite Quartz reminds us that life is sacred.  Our life is sacred and our loved ones are sacred.  So too are all the other people, animals, plants and other beings on this planet.  As such, our choices should always strive to reflect that.  Chlorite Quartz inspires us to find ways to connect more with nature and it can be used to attract devas and other nature spirits.  It is attuned to the Heart and Third Eye Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Sagittarius. It is connected to the element of Earth and vibrates to the number 9.

Emotional: Chlorite Quartz brings its purifying energy to our emotional body as well.  It helps us release negative emotions, particularly anger and irritation, as well as nervousness and anxiety.  When people are struggling to come to an agreement and work together towards a common goal, Chlorite Quartz softens the energy between individuals and helps us to come to a positive accord.  Chlorite Quartz has a hopeful and optimistic energy.  It sincerely promises us that emotionally healing is possible.  It’s not necessary to struggle forever and it is possible to do more than just cope.  If we are willing to do the work to heal, Chlorite Quartz assures us that real solutions are out there. 

Mental: Chlorite Quartz is a wonderful talisman for doctors, nurses, vets and anyone involved in the medical and healing fields.  It can help patients be more receptive and comfortable with the idea of being healed and to relax into trust.  Equally important, it can help people actually follow healthy recommendations, rather than just hoping things will magically change on their own.  Chlorite Quartz inspires us to take our best ideas and put them into practical action.  In all cases, Chlorite Quartz encourages us to be wise and healthy in our choices.    

Physical: Chlorite Quartz is used by metaphysical healers to keep the body healthy and strong.  It is said to help the body better assimilate vitamins and minerals and to increase the ‘good’ bacteria in the belly. It is also said to help reduce the appearance of liver spots and other physical signs of aging.  Chlorite Quartz has been used as a general pain-reliever, and is said to reduce the size of tumors and other growths.  It is also believed to offer protection during radiation treatment to minimized negative side effects while increase the healing benefits.   

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Rock Family: Chlorite Quartz is a Clear Quartz with minor Chlorite inclusions, rather than a distinct mineral in its own right.  Chlorite is not a distinct mineral either, but is instead a group of 15 closely-related phyllosilicate minerals most of which have a green color.  The two most common varieties of Chlorite are Clinochlore (magnesium rich) and Chamosite (iron rich).   

Formation: In most cases, Chlorite minerals are formed when sedimentary rocks transform into metamorphic rocks due to regional metamorphism.  But in the case of Chlorite Quartz, it forms in an igneous process.  The hydrothermal veins contain both magma and liquid water.  Because of the high pressures, the water stays in a liquid form.  The hot water dissolves various minerals in the original rock and slows down the growth process of new minerals like Quartz.  As the Quartz slowly grows, it can acquire a thin film of green Chlorite which had dissolved in the hot water.  As the Quartz continue to grow, it will cover up that Chlrorite layer, leaving the green Chlorite encased within.  In some cases, the Chlorite will be found on both the inside and the outside of the Quartz crystal. 

Mining: Chlorite minerals are very soft and can be scratched with a fingernail.  It has little use industrially, but Chlorite minerals have been used for carvings since prehistoric times.  They are secondary mineral byproducts from various igneous and metamorphic mines.  In the case of Chlorite Quartz, the mine typically produces beautiful Quartz crystals clusters.   

Enhancements: All Chlorite Quartz on the market may be considered fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting and polishing.

History of Chlorite Quartz

Chlorite and Limestone Statue, Female Figurine, Bronze Age, Central Asia

Chlorite Quartz is a relatively new crystal to the metaphysical world.  As such, it is not included in any of the older lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers.  It is included in some of the newer lapidaries and is a popular Quartz inclusion among collectors. 

The name Chlorite comes from the Greek work chloros meaning “green”.  It is group of 15 closely-related phyllosilicate minerals most of which have an attractive green color and which are very soft and easily carved.  Mankind has been carving Chlorite minerals for many millennia.  Chlorite has been used to make decorative and religious sculptures, housewares items, stamps, beads and jewelry.  It was also used to create molds for working with bronze and copper.   

The oldest known Chlorite sculpture can be found among the “Venus Figures” which were discovered in the Balzi Rossi caves in Italy in the 19th century.  These prehistoric female figurines are thought to be between 24,000 and 19,000 years old.  Chlorite sculptures that depict human figurines have been in many localities around the world, but are especially prominent in Central Asia and Iran.  Typically the Chlorite is used for the clothing and/or hair of the statue.  Sometimes a lighter colored stone, such as Limestone, may be used for the skin.  Despite the fact that Chlorite minerals have been used in so many carvings, there doesn’t appear to be any metaphysical properties attached to these stones historically.

Sourcing Relationship

I have been doing business with this source since 2014.  They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source.  The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons.  Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it.  The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners visit many small and industrial-size mines personally.  For artisanal-mined deposits in sub-Sahara Africa, the owners work with Gem Dealers who deal directly with the part-time miners.  The majority of these Gem Dealers are women.  Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin.  For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly.  As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them.  However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

    The clean, head-clearing, healthy energy of the Chlorite Quartz immediately made itself felt. I’d thought of this stone as practical help and that’s proved true. I didn’t expect it would also have a spectacular dancing rainbow in it!
