Mineralogy of Girasol Quartz
Mineral Family: Tectosilicate
Chemical Composition: SiO2
Color: Colorless, may have a faint orange hue
Crystal System: Hexagonal/trigonal
Form/Habit: Prismatic, Massive
Luminescence: Rare, Reddish-violet
Location: While regular Clear Quartz is found in numerous locations around the globe, Girasol Quartz is a variety found exclusively in Madagascar.
Mineral Family: Girasol Quartz is a variety of Clear 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, of course, Rose Quartz. The most highly prized variety of all is Amethyst, or purple Quartz. Girasol Quartz can be clear, or rose-colored.
Formation: Girasol 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 various types of Quartz crystals. The exact shade of the quartz depends on tiny inclusions n the silica acid.
Mining: Most of the time, Clear Quartz is mined as a secondary mineral found within other commercial mines. By contrast, Girasol Quartz is the primary mineral mined in a few small deposits in Madagascar.
Enhancements: Girasol Quartz is fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
Synonyms: Opalescent Quartz, Milky Quartz, Girasol Opal
History of Girasol Quartz
Girasol was “discovered” relatively recently by the metaphysical community and so it was not included in any early lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers. However, Clear Quartz has been used by humans since long before the dawn of civilization.

Healing Properties of Girasol Quartz
Spiritual: Girasol Quartz shares the same basic energy as Clear Quartz, except that its energy is slightly softer. It can be used to amplify the power and energy of all other crystals. Girasol Quartz is an especially good stones for energy healers, such as Reiki practitioners, who are actively directing energy from one source and into another for the purpose of healing and positive transformation. Equally important, Girasol Quartz helps energy healers to maintain healthy boundaries and not give away their energy indiscriminately or forget to tap into the Divine Source of all energy. Girasol Quartz is attuned to the Crown Chakra and linked to ALL astrological signs. It is connected to the element of Storm and vibrates to the number 4.
Emotional: Girasol Quartz helps us to filter out negative emotions that do not serve us – such as depression, anxiety, fear or anger – and strengthens positive emotions – such as love, compassion and courage. Girasol Quartz can help us to clearly see where emotional growth is needed and what we need to do on a practical level in order to create the happiest and healthiest life possible. When bad things happen to us, Girasol Quartz can help us to learn from the bad experiences and then move on without dwelling. It asks us to let go of any impulse to play the role of the constant victim or martyr, and instead choose to simply learn the lesson and move on. It gently reminds us that we do have some choice in our circumstances and our responses, and that we can choose a path that will lead to more happiness in the long run. It invites us to claim our own Personal Power now!
Mental: Girasol Quartz is a wonderful stone to help us visualize positive goals and then to actively move take the steps to bring our dreams into reality. It enhances both communication and creativity, and helps us to understand complicated situations and correctly determine our role. If we need to let go of certain responsibilities or not take on more than we can handle, it shows us how to do so gracefully. Girasol Quartz is especially good for any “wisdompreneur,” a business person working in areas that call for great wisdom, such as a therapist or life coach.
Physical: Girasol Quartz can be used wherever Clear Quartz is used, most often in conjunction with other healing stones to amplify their specific power. Girasol Quartz is said to be specifically useful for treating chronic fatigue syndrome and to help with immune system imbalances.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

These Girasol Quartz were mined in Madagascar and tumbled in South Africa.
I met the owner of the South African 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 the largest selection 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 Girasol Quartz for you.
This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Girasol Quartz or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Girasol 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 will be a beautiful translucent milky white stone. 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 Girasol 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 Girasol Quartz
Girasol Quartz unique milky coloring will change 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:
Girasol 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.
Girasol Quartz can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.
Girasol 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 Girasol Quartz can be safely used to make direct-infusion “Girasol 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.
