Quartz is a stone that almost everyone is familiar with – whether they realize it or not! As perhaps the most abundant mineral on Earth, it’s worth paying attention to. Quartz has a long history of lore, tradition, and practical uses, including applications in electronics, robotics, glass-making, and home decor. Quartz, itself, is a colorless mineral that can be either transparent (clear/see through) or opaque (not see though).
Primarily, clear quartz is used as an amplifier – it can amplify the properties of other stones. Interestingly, this is also one of its uses in everyday life: as a way to move energy from one place to another, such as with electronics. Quartz is also easily programmable: When you set your intentions for the stone, it can help to amplify that energy, whether it be for abundance, love, or peace.
Quartz can be found in most any crystal shop, both brick-and-mortar and online. It is also easy to come across pieces that are very affordable! Of course, depending on the size, shape, and/or “grade” (quality), it may be more or less expensive. Quartz is also beautiful: its naturally-formed, clear points can be absolutely stunning - as can it's cut or shaped creations!
