Location: The best transparent Blue Quartz crystals are found in Italy and Spain.  Additional deposits of Blue Quartz are located in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, Congo, French West Indies, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, United Kingdom, and the United States (Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia).

Mineral Family: Blue Quartz is the rare blue 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. Colorless Quartz is called Clear Quartz or Rock Crystal. Yellow Quartz is Citrine. Green Quartz is Prasiolite. Brown Quartz is Smoky Quartz. Pink Quartz is Rose Quartz. The most highly prized variety of all is Amethyst, or purple Quartz.

Formation: Blue 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. The blue color is caused by tiny inclusions of blue minerals like Dumortierite.

Mining: In Spain, rare Blue Quartz crystals are prized and a focus for several mines.  In the rest of the world, Blue Quartz is typically mined as a secondary mineral within other commercial mines.

Enhancements: Blue Quartz can be fully natural or created from Clear Quartz that has been irradiated with gold to create a bright neon blue color.

History of Blue Quartz

Blue Quartz is a relatively “new” stone to the metaphysical world and was not included as a distinct mineral in any early lapidaries, texts which describe gemstones and their powers.

Healing Properties of Blue Quartz

Spiritual: Blue Quartz is a gentle stone to inspire great personal growth.  It reveals our path forward and help us to walk it gracefully and confidently.  Blue Quartz helps us to stay calm and centered during times when our life is disrupted or at a crossroads, transforming from one stage of life to another.  It reminds us that each stage of life is a wonderful opportunity all its own.  So, do not mourn a previous time of life, or seek to hurry forward to the future.  Rather enjoy the present moment and take time to explore all the delicious possibilities it presents!  Blue Quartz reminds us that we are all one family and that connecting with others and supporting each other on our journeys is powerful good medicine.  Blue Quartz is a particularly good stone for people who practice yoga, meditation or other forms of breath-work.  It is attuned to the Throat and Third Eye Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.  It is connected to the elements of Wind and Water and vibrates to the number 4.

Emotional: Blue Quartz brings a calm self-confidence, a sense of ease and soul-purpose deep within ourselves.  It encourages us to be generous with our time and energy, with the people that matter most to us.  Blue Quartz also encourages us to cultivate thoughtful relationships, and to be with people who make us feel good and help us to grow.  Blue Quartz teaches us that “fear”, especially fear of the unknown, is often little more than “incomplete knowledge” and that the way to move past fear is to simply learn more!  It also reminds us to reach out to others for support when in need and to trust that we will receive good energy.  Blue Quartz inspires hope and helps us to trust ourselves and to listen to the promptings of our heart.

Mental: Blue Quartz is a wonderful stone for the mind and inspires lifelong learning.  It teaches us that we are constantly evolving, ever changing, and that each season of our life is full of interesting challenges just waiting for us to solve them.  It helps us to see new opportunities as exciting and encourages us to ponder new ideas.  Blue Quartz improves our communication skills, helping us to find the right words to express whatever we are feeling, thinking or dreaming into.  Blue Quartz is an excellent stone for anyone undergoing talk therapy.

Physical: Blue Quartz is used by metaphysical healers to treat the lungs, heart and spleen, as well as to heal the endocrine system.  It is said to stabilize the metabolic process and to strengthen the immune system.  It is believe to be especially useful for treating blood clots that are caught in the lungs.  Blue Quartz is highly recommended to work with when learning how to control and be conscious of breathing, for meditation and healing purposes.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Earth to Pocket

Earth to Pocket is the Moonrise Crystal business mission. It’s the promise that any stones purchased here will be consciously sourced and the journey of the stone, from the Earth and into your Pocket, will be as transparent as possible.

These Blue Quartz were mined and tumbled in the United States.

I met the owner of the US tumbling company at the 2014 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. This company only sells tumbled stones twice a year, once at the Tucson show and later at the Sainte Marie Aux Mines International Mineral and Gem Expo in Provence, France. They offer one of the largest selections of high quality tumbled stones in the industry and are one of my favorite suppliers.

It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Blue Quartz for you.

Your Stone

This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Blue Quartz or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Blue Quartz measures at least 1 inch at its longest length and have a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty. 

The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips and be a beautiful bright blue opaque stone, possibly with darker blue markings. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.

With their beautiful color and clean energies, these Blue Quartz are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, use them in a crystal elixir, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.

Safe Handling of Blue Quartz

Caution!!!

Blue Quartz will quickly lose its color over time if left in direct sunlight. It is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.

Good To Know:

Blue Quartz are physically durable stones. As long as they are rounded and without thin edges, they can be carried in a pocket or medicine bag, or worn as jewelry on an everyday basis, without significant danger of the stone chipping or breaking.

Blue Quartz can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.

Blue Quartz can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.

Tumbled and fully smooth Blue Quartz can be safely used to make direct-infusion “Blue Quartz Water” for drinking or bathing. Before making any direct-infusion elixir ALWAYS check the mineralogical properties of the stone to ensure it is not toxic. Only use fully tumbled stones or natural Quartz points in direct-infusion elixirs, never rough stones. When in doubt, make an indirect-infusion elixir instead.
