Quartz is by far the most versatile mineral in the world, physically and metaphysically speaking. It is also the most abundant mineral in the world, which means I can and will go on about this sweet crystal forever.
This marks the beginning of the Quartz Series, where we will explore and celebrate the many variations of our dear friend, silicon dioxide, in all its splendor. First up, Tibetan Quartz! (Didn’t see that coming, did you?)
Tibetan Quartz tends to be naturally double terminated, which is great for healing. The double termination (which means that the crystal comes to a point on either end) gets energy flowing in both directions, promoting balance and getting stagnant energy to move.
Some are crystal clear like Herkimer “diamonds”, and these are great for clarifying your intention and purpose. Others are milky with hematite or carbon inclusions, and these are very mellow, grounding, with a softer energy than the clear ones. Many of these beautiful crystals have water pockets inside. This water is as old as the crystal itself and is great for soothing the emotions and opening the heart.
Since they come from Tibet, they hold ancient wisdom and a strong connection to eastern spirituality. The souls that have done serious spiritual work in this area of the world have created an atmosphere for these crystals to manifest their highest potential, and vice versa. It is important, when working with them, to be aware of and gracious towards the many beings that have paved the way for you to do your work.
Tibetan Quartz shows us that we are capable of much more than we think, that we are actually much more loving than we think, and much more connected than we think. These crystals are so beneficial to those of us in the West because they help us develop our psychic faculties, but keep us humble and connected to source energy while we do it. And we can use all the humility we can get!
