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.
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.

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.
The current owners visit many small and industrial-size mines personally. For artisanal-mined deposits in sub-Sahara Africa, the owners work with Gem Dealers who deal directly with the part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.
