Crystal QuartzStone of Power

Quartz Crystal (Colorless, aka Clear Quartz, Rock Quartz, Rock Crystal, Crystal Quartz): The transparent colorless variety of Quartz is still known as rock crystal. Long ago, people believed that rock crystal was a compact form of ice: crystallos actually means “frozen.” The best rock crystal has the clarity and shimmer of crystal clear water. Although colorless Quartz is relatively common, large flawless specimens are not. Which is why most crystal balls these days are made of glass, not Quartz. Quartz is highly useful in healing, in meditation, and for spiritual growth and enlightenment.
