For many centuries, crystals have been used in spiritual readings to help individuals to gain insight into their emotional lives and relationships, allowing them to heal. As any geologist will tell you, each form of crystal possesses a unique structure, making them radiate at certain frequencies. According to psychics, it is this that makes crystals wield such restorative power.
From regaining balance in the body to stabilising the energy system, crystals can achieve a multitude of valuable purposes when used in holistic practices aiming to bring the body, mind and spirit into tune. One of the most popular forms of crystal is the quartz. This is partly due to its attractive appearance, but also because of its impressive effects. Here are five of the most essential quartz stones, what they mean and how they can improve your life.
Clear Quartz Crystals
Clear quartz is a striking stone for its immense visual clarity, often being near-transparent and with very clean form. It is also a stone of emotional clarity, helping individuals to think clearly, focus on their desires and achieve their dreams. By activating energy centres within the body, clear quartz adds synergy to the body so that energy can flow smoothly.
A truly beautiful stone, rose quartz is highly desirable for many as an accessory or decoration. More importantly, however, it is the stone of unconditional love. Rose quartz is deeply significant to the practice of spiritual readings, as one of the most important stones for Heart Chakra work. It is said to open the heart to love – whether that be romantic, familial, friendships or simply self-love. It also emits a soothing energy, fostering empathy, whilst reducing stress and removing anger, jealousy and resentment towards others.
Smoky quartz is the crystal of the elements. It enables its user to reconnect fully with the earth, maintaining balance and positive decision-making. The high levels of energy exuding from smoky quartz are thought to be able to absorb and transform negative energy, allowing individuals to overcome emotional barriers. Many people choose to wear smoky quartz stones to add emotional support and dissolve anger.
Rutilated quartz is a unique form of clear quartz that is filled with miniscule needle-like pieces of Golden Rutile, which are often called “the hairs of Venus.” Like smoky quartz, it can clear energy blockages of all the chakras, facilitating the alignment of the mind and body. Rutilated quartz also connects individuals with the spiritual realm, which is highly valuable in clairvoyant readings. This very uplifting stone exudes positivity into lives and atmospheres, even speeding up psychical injury healing and delaying the symptoms of ageing!
Black Tourmalinated Quartz
Black tourmalinated quartz is also created from a fusion including clear quartz. This particular form of quartz is thought to be a stone of great luck, bringing prosperity to the user. It is said to bring immense quantities of light to surround the body, assisting healing on every level. When worn, the black tourmalinated quartz can create overall balance within the body.
