Mineralogy of Himalayan Quartz
Mineral Family: Tectosilicate
Chemical Composition: SiO2
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: Himalayan Clear Quartz is the colorless variety of 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. 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. Most of the Himalayan Quartz on the market 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 Himalayan 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: Himalayan Rock Crystal, Nirvana Quartz
History of 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 Clear Quartz is included in most ancient, medieval and modern lapidaries, few specifically distinguish Himalayan Quartz from other Clear Quartz 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 Himalayan Quartz
Spiritual: Himalayan Quartz amplifies the power and energy of all other crystals, making it 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. Himalayan Quartz is also called ‘Nirvana Quartz’ as meditating with it can help us to more quickly and cleanly release the bonds that hold us back in our spiritual life and to leap forward into a new and higher reality. It invites us to become Enlightened and a shining Light for others. Himalayan Quartz gives us the courage to remove the final veil that separates us from All That Is. Himalayan Quartz is attuned to all Chakras and astrological signs. It is connected to the element Storm and vibrates to the number 4.
Emotional: Himalayan Quartz brings us into alignment and harmony by filtering out negative emotions and beliefs that do not serve us. When used with intention, it can also be a tool to strengthen emotions and beliefs that bless our lives. Himalayan 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. Himalayan Quartz helps us to rise up, go farther, and embrace our true self.
Mental: Himalayan 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. Himalayan 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: Himalayan 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.
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 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 Himalayan Quartz for you.
This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Himalayan Quartz or several, depending on your individual needs. Each 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 pure white. 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 Himalayan 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 Himalayan Clear Quartz
Clear Quartz can act as a prism and accidentally start a fire if the angle of the sun is just right. It is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
Good To Know:
Himalayan Clear 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.
Himalayan Clear Quartz can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.
Himalayan Clear 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.
Himalyan Clear Quartz can be safely used to make direct-infusion “Himalyan Clear 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.
