Mineralogy of Golden Himalayan Quartz
Mineral Family: Tectosilicate
Chemical Composition: SiO2
Color: Colorless, Yellow
Crystal System: Hexagonal/trigonal
Transparency: Translucent to opaque
Location: While Quartz is found all over the world, to be considered Himalayan Quartz it must be mined in countries that including the great mountain range, ie: Bhutan, China, India, Nepal, and Pakistan.
Mineral Family: Golden Himalayan Quartz is a variety of Citrine, or yellow Quartz mined in the Himalayas. All varieties of Quartz are Silicate minerals, 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. 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: Golden 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. Trace particles of iron within the silica acid gives it a yellow or golden color, otherwise the silica acid would transform into Clear Quartz.
Mining: Most Golden Quartz is found near or in Amethyst mines, since the only chemical difference between the two stones is how quickly the silica acid cooled down! In the case of Golden Himalayan Quartz, it is mined near the border between Nepal and Tibet/China. They are mined by hand at heights between 10,000 and 15,000 feet above sea level, and carried by humans and pack animals down the mountains to bring them to market.
Enhancements: The most desirable Golden Himalayan Quartz is as transparent as glass without inclusions.
Synonyms: Himalayan Gold, Golden Healer, Golden Azeztulite, Rock Crystal, Citrine, Yellow Quartz
History of Golden Himalayan Quartz
Himalayan Quartz comes from the oldest and highest Quartz deposits in the world, found at over 10,000 feet above sea level nestled among the earth’s tallest mountains. As such, they are highly desired by the metaphysical community who detect a singularly high vibration distinct from those minerals found at lower levels. While the more generic form of Citrine is included in many ancient, medieval and modern lapidaries, few specifically distinguish Golden Himalayan Quartz from other Citrine deposits.
Among locals, Himalayan Quartz are sometimes called “the Eyes of God” and to give gifts of clear intuitive sight to anyone who holds one. The Quartz are believed to hold within them all the knowledge and wisdom of the yogis, saints and other gurus.

Healing Properties of Golden Himalayan Quartz
Spiritual: Golden Himalayan Quartz has one of the most powerful energies of all crystals. It purifies the energy of everything around it, and is one of the few “self-cleansing crystals” capable of maintaining its own brilliant energy field. It is a potent tool for manifestation, helping us to know our desires and ask the Divine to guide our actions and lead us to success. Golden Himalayan Quartz acts as a bright Light during the dark times in our life, giving us strength and hope. Golden Himalayan Quartz is attuned to the Solar Plexus and Crown Chakra and linked to the astrological signs of Sagittarius and Capricorn. It is connected to the element of Storm and vibrates to the number 2 and 8.
Emotional: Golden Himalayan Quartz has a joyful and happy energy, making it one of the most useful stones to use to treat depression and anxiety. Its purifying energy helps protect us from being drained by difficult situations or people. Furthermore, it can help us to set and maintain clear emotional boundaries so that we don’t need to rely on its protection. It helps us to see that it is ok to say “no” and also to be clear about what we WANT rather than merely focused on the minimum we NEED to survive. Golden Himalayan Quartz encourages us to think and feel clearly about what is necessary for our happiness and to confidently do the work necessary to bring that about. It teaches us that when we do the work, we are properly entitled to enjoy the result.
Mental: Golden Himalayan Quartz’ purifying energy helps us to keep our thoughts clear and clean, so we can make good decisions and put them into action immediately. It helps us to rapidly digest complex information, particularly as related to power, boundaries, and manifestation. It helps us to organize our thoughts into those which serve us, and those which do not, and to quickly discard those that do not. It is particularly helpful for helping us to understand and move past any mental blocks dealing with money. It helps us to let go of feelings of being “undeserving” or the erroneous belief that money is “evil.” Instead, Golden Himalayan Quartz shows us that money buys marshmallows and builds hospitals, and can therefore be considered a “good thing” worthy of being gathered, saved, spent, and enjoyed.
Physical: Golden Himalayan Quartz has been used to treat the stomach, spleen and pancreas and is said to promote digestion. It is commonly used by metaphysical healers to speed up metabolism and heal the endocrine system. It is particularly useful for helping us to make the practical lifestyle changes that are necessary after being diagnosed with early diabetes.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

These Golden Himalayan Quartzes were mined in the Himalayan Mountains Region and tumbled in India.
The owner of the tumbling company is one of my very favorite suppliers. He has been in the business for over twenty years and has some of the most gorgeous tumbled stones available. He sells only once a year at the Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona.
It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Golden Himalayan Quartz for you.
This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Golden Himalayan Quartz or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Golden Himalayan Quartz measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a unique shape with soft edges.
The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips and cracks and be transparent as glass and a soft glowing golden hue. 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 transparency and clean energies, these Golden Himalayan Clear 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 Golden Himalayan Quartz
Golden Himalayan 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.
Unique Trait ♥
Golden Himalayan Quartz are one of the very few “self-cleansing stones”and as such do not need to to be energetically cleansed in order to keep their energy bright. They can even be used to cleanse the energy of other stones without having their own energy diminished. However, Golden Himalayan Quartz 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.
Good To Know:
Golden Himalayan 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.
Golden Himalayan Quartz can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.
