Quartz may be the most powerful stone on the planet. It can be used to focus, store, amplify and transform energy and thoughts. It has the ability to transfer the energy of the stars to the spirit, providing clarity, harmony and alignment of thoughts, consciousness and emotions.
When quartz is placed on the body, it aligns and clears all of the chakras. Placing quartz at the third-eye assist to clear the mind during meditation. At the heart chakra, quartz eliminates emotional disturbances and allows for ease of self acceptance and self love. Placement of the crystal at the crown chakra creates a clear pathway for movement of the Kundalini, offering access to other realms and plains of existence. When worn at the throat it stimulates the thyroid and parathyroid glands, helping to alleviate respiratory issues.
When placed in the home or office, quartz draws negative energy like a magnet, cleaning the space and emitting positivity in its place. It also activates and amplifies the properties and powers of other stones, so it is an invaluable stone to have on hand for gridding and elixir creation.
