Clear Quartz

Everything you need to know about Clear Quartz.

IDENTIFICATION

Clear Quartz is a hard, crystalline mineral composed of Silica (Silicon Dioxide SiO2) and it is measured as having a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale. 

It is part of the trigonal crystal system and has a vitreous lustre. As the meaning of the name suggests, Clear Quartz colour varies from clear, cloudy, to solid white. It also goes by the name Rock Crystal.

  

A true Clear Quartz crystal will often be colourless and transparent. Sometimes the stone will have inclusions beneath the surface which gives it a slightly cloudy look in places. However, it won’t have any air bubbles inside. If you see air bubbles beneath the surface of your Clear Quartz it is probably glass rather than a real crystal. Many Clear Quartz gems will also have tiny cracks, lines, and inclusions beneath the surface unless they are of the highest grade of superior quality.

Clear Quartz best combines with:

  • Labradorite: These 2 crystals together help clears confusion and promotes mental clarity.
  • Lapis Lazuli: To enhance your meditation.
  • Hematite: Combined they can help solve emotional and mental fog problems and improve your handling of life in general.

  • Selenite: These stones are the perfect embodiment of stress and anxiety relief, facilitating positive spiritual transformation and instilling profound peace aligned with your intentions.
  • Element: Earth, Fire, Air, Water
  • Planet: Sun, Moon
  • Zodiac: Aries, Leo
  • Birthstone: April
  • Chakras: All (but mainly Crown)

HISTORY

In their creation myths the aboriginal tribes in both Australia and South America describe the image of the “cosmic serpent,” the progenitor of all life, being led and guided by a Quartz crystal.

The legendary cities of Atlantis and Lemuria were believed to use Clear Quartz as a source of rejuvenation, in solar energy refraction, and for the complete development of their civilizations of incredible power and splendour. 

From ancient divination to modern crystal-gazing, clear crystal balls have long been used to find lost articles, foretell secrets of the future, forecast impending doom, and was even used at one time as a means to detect minor offences and crimes.
