WHAT IS QUARTZ? Quartz is the second most abundant mineral on earth. It takes on average 1000 years for a smaller quartz crystal to form - although larger specimens can take much longer then that. In-fact, the oldest known quartz crystal is over 3 billion years old (yes billion, with a B). How interesting to think, that the piece of quartz you hold in your hand may have witnessed dinosaurs walking by...
WHY IT'S AWESOME? One of the most famous mines for quartz is the Ron Coleman Mine in Arkansas, USA. From this mine some of the most spectacular, largest and most expensive pieces of quartz have been found - with the most expensive being worth around $3.5 million dollars, whoa! Nice one Ron! But don't worry - you don't need to spend nearly that much to get yourself a beautiful quartz specimen from our shop.
Tribes in North America have revered it as a powerful sacred stone and treated it with great respect as one of their talismans. First Nations call it the brain cells of Grandmother Earth. In ancient Rome, the wealthy would carry crystal balls during hot weather because they believed the stones had cooling properties. The Japanese have always called Clear Quartz Tama meaning perfect jewel, and it’s also noted in Hindu legends for its purifying qualities.

👉 Quartz is said to have to be an energy amplifier, and an excellent crystal for programming with manifest intention. It is used in computer chips, hard drives & radios. In-fact, much of our modern technology relies upon quartz crystals.
Some scientists speculate, that it can even store digital data, like a computer hard drive (except potentially much much more data). Some scientists even speculate, that the ancient Mayan crystal quartz skulls, contain a recorded digital record of ancient human history (that our modern technology isn't yet able to read).
👉 In crystal energy work, Quartz is the master crystal. Representing all colors and spectrums of energy. It is usually used a the wand-component by a crystal energy worker, to direct flow of chi.
