Generic Properties of Quartz
Quartz has a unique helical spiral crystalline form which is responsible for its remarkable effectiveness as an amplifier. Studies have shown that the effects of Acupuncture needles increase by ten percent when the needles are coated with Quartz and that a Quartz point reduces fuel consumption if attached to the fuel line of a vehicle.
Quartz absorbs, stores, releases, and regulates energy and is also excellent at unblocking it within the meridians and energetic systems of the etheric body. As shown by a Kirlian camera, if you hold a piece of quartz in your hand the energy of your bio magnetic field is doubled. You can also have fun testing the powers of quartz by experimenting with static electricity. Rub a balloon vigorously against a natural material such as a woolen jumper, or your own hair, and see how a Quartz crystal dispels it more quickly than anything else.
The reason why Quartz is known as the Master Healer Stone is because it works at a vibrational level attuned to the specific energy requirements of the person needing healing. It also works to ascertain the spiritual needs of anyone who is looking to develop their spiritual practice, enhance their personal growth or form deeper connections with their spiritual selves.

When you wish to work on manifesting your goals, dreams, or material resources you may choose to create a grid or mandala to help you to focus and meditate on this. You will find that instructions as to how to achieve this often refer to “programming” your crystals in order to get the maximum effects. Clear Quartz is ideal for this purpose as it acts like a sponge in its ability to absorb your intentions and thoughts. After all, thoughts are energy, and Quartz is an energetic super crystal.
- To program your Quartz, you need to prepare yourself and your space before you begin.
- Clear and cleanse your space and hold your Quartz crystal under clear running water.
- Take some time to phrase your intentions in the best possible way for maximum results.

- Your intentions can be longer than this if you wish to add more detail. It is a good idea to write these phrases down before you start the ritual. It is surprisingly easy to slip into using negative language of you are not concentrating and telling your Quartz crystal what you do NOT want will confuse the situation and dilute the power of your intentions.
