Spiritual: Clear Quartz amplifies the power and energy of all other crystals, making Clear Quartz an incredible tool for crystal healing. It helps us to accurately see into the heart of all matters and align ourselves with our Highest Selves and the Highest Good. It can be used to communicate with Angels and Spirit Guides, quiet the mind during meditation, and amplify our own psychic abilities. It is attuned to ALL Chakras and astrological signs. It is connected to the element Storm and vibrates to the number 4.
Emotional: Clear Quartz’s primary emotional purpose is to bring us into alignment and harmony by filtering out negative emotions that do not serve us. It can also be used to strengthen emotions and beliefs that help us grow. Clear Quartz can help us to clearly see where growth is needed and what we need to do to create the happiest and healthiest life possible. In particular, it can help us to let go of “victim mentality” and realize we are responsible for accepting or denying our Personal Power.
Mental: Clear Quartz is mentally revitalizing, encouraging problem solving and memory recall. It is a stone for self-knowledge and is especially helpful for anyone engaged in their personal work, trying to understand and improve themselves. Clear Quartz helps us to move past self-limiting mental beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world at large. It can help us remain neutral when faced with emotionally-charged situations, allowing us to easily understand and resolve problems.
Physical: Clear Quartz is said to reduce fevers and alleviate pain and swelling. It has been used to warm the body, especially after being exposed to extreme cold or emotional trauma. It is most often used in conjunction with other healing stones to amplify their specific powers.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
Mineralogy of Clear Quartz
Mineral Family: Tectosilicate
Chemical Composition: SiO2
Crystal System: Hexagonal/trigonal
Transparency: Translucent to opaque
Location: Quartz is found all over the world. The most important rock crystal deposits are in Brazil, Madagascar, the United States, and countries bordering the Alps such as Austria, France, Germany, and Switzerland.
Mineral Family: Clear Quartz is the colorless variety of Quartz, which is in turn a Silicate mineral. Silicate minerals are the largest family of minerals, including more than 25% of all known minerals and 40% of all common minerals. In addition to being a major part of the Earth’s crust, Silicate minerals have also been found on the moon and in meteorites. Silicates are minerals which contain the elements Silicon (a light gray shiny metal) and Oxygen (a colorless gas). Together, these two elements form a tetrahedra – a shape similar to a pyramid – with a Silicon atom in the center and Oxygen atoms at each of the three corners. These tetrahedras connect with other chemical structures, in six different ways, to form various minerals and rocks. There are six main groups of Silicate minerals, and these main groups are further subdivided into secondary subdivisions, such as Quartz and Feldspar. Quartz is a large mineral family in its own right and its members come in every shade of the rainbow. Purple Quartz is Amethyst. Yellow Quartz is Citrine. Green Quartz is Prasiolite. Brown Quartz is Smoky Quartz. Pink Quartz is, of course, Rose Quartz. Colorless Quartz is called Clear Quartz or Rock Crystal.
Formation: Clear Quartz is created when liquid magma from a volcanic explosion cools down and transforms into igneous rocks. During this cooling down period, silica acid bubbles shift from being a gas/liquid into a solid compound. The bubble becomes a hollow space in the igneous rock and the silica acid becomes Quartz crystals. If no trace elements are present to change its color, the silica acid becomes Clear Quartz.
Mining: In a few locations, most notably Arkansas, Clear Quartz is found in a large enough deposit to justify commercial mining. More often, Clear Quartz is mined as a secondary mineral. For example, many Gold mines also extract a sizable amount of Quartz.
Enhancements: The most desirable Clear Quartz is as transparent as glass without inclusions. All Clear Quartz on the market is natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
Synonyms: Rock Crystal
History of Clear Quartz
The word Quartz dates back to the 16th century and is an old German mining term. Prior to that, Quartz was more often called by its Greek name, krystallos, meaning “clear ice”. For centuries, Quartz was believed to be ice which had petrified and therefore remained in a permanent solid state. This belief persisted well into the European medieval period.
A variety of cultures, scattered across the globe, linked Clear Quartz with rain. Both the Irish and Mayan are known to have buried Clear Quartz crystals in their fields hoping to attract good rainfall and the blessing of a bountiful harvest. More recently, the Ta-ta-thi, an aboriginal tribe in Australia, were documented in the 20th century using Clear Quartz in their rain ritual. The Chief of the tribe would break a piece of Quartz into two pieces and throw the smaller part into the sky. The remaining piece was wrapped in feathers, soaked in water and buried. If performed correctly, it was said to consistently bring down the rains.
Quartz has also been used in human burials since time immortal. It was especially common among the Celtic peoples of the British Isles and Native Americans in the American Southwest. According to various legends, a piece of Quartz serves to “light the way” in the after-life, to help the dead communicate, or may encourage the souls of the departed to be judged as “pure” when facing eternal judgement.
The earliest literary reference to Clear Quartz is found in the Rigveda, a Hindu sacred text. Written between 1500-1200 BCE, the Rigveda includes many origin stories as well as hymns and prayers. One such story describes how Indra, the leader of the gods, liberated the holy rivers. According to the Rigveda, long ago in the time of the gods, the demon stone serpent (or cave), Vala, was killed and dismembered by Indra. Vala’s body was then scattered across the world. Each piece of his body turned into a different type of gemstone. The Vedic texts say the god’s semen was transformed into Clear Quartz. The texts later state that wearing Clear Quartz set in gold will bring good fortune, protection, and extraordinary sexual powers!
Clear Quartz was also mentioned in an early lapidary written by the Greek priest Onomacritis (530-480BCE), founder of the Hellenic mysteries. He said, “Who so goes in the temple with this in his hand may be quite sure of having his prayers granted, as the gods cannot withstand its power.” Clear Quartz was used along with flint to start fires, but Onomacritis explained that “when this stone is laid upon dry wood, so that the sun’s rays may shine upon it, there will soon be smoke, then fire, then bright flames.” These bright flames were known as “Holy Fire” and were the most desirable way to burn offerings to the gods.
In the first century CE, the mystic Apollinus of Tyana (c.15-100) claimed to use Quartz to make himself invisible. According to legend, the mystic disappeared and reappeared in front of the Roman Emperor Caesar Domitian and then repeated the exercise at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. Two millennia later, in 1935 a Hungarian scientist, Herr Stephen Pribill, partially recreated Apolliunus’ feat. Using mercury lamps and high voltage electricity passing through Quartz, he proved it was possible to make small items invisible to the naked eye.

I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.
In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.
In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar.
