Quartz Crystal: Transformer of Energy

Quartz crystal is the second most abundant mineral within the Earth's continental crust. Since ancient times quartz has been the most commonly used minerals in the making of jewelry and stone carvings. Quartz usually exhibits a 'trigonal crystal system' form, in which a six-sided prism terminates in a six-sided pyramid. Apart from the more abundant clear quartz crystal, forms can vary from yellow-orange citrine to purple amethyst, milky quartz, smoky quartz rutilated quartz, Jasper, agate, chalcedony and rose quartz.

Quartz crystals have piezoelectric properties, transmitting current vital to the development and functions of modern day electronics. From watches to computers, there is little in our electronic world today that would function without quartz .. quartz watches require quartz crystals to keep accurate time.

Quartz crystals are the most common mineral amongst the hundreds of varieties of quartz to be found inside the Earth. Quartz is also a common constituent of granite, sandstone, limestone, and many igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. In geological terms quartz is the rock forming mineral.

Crystal skulls are the most famous ancient artefacts to be carved from quartz crystal. The Ancient Wisdom website lists many interesting varieties of quartz crystal artefacts found in Archeological sites around the world, from Homo erectus (20 pieces of quartz crystal found with remains in Zhoukoudian, Beijing) to 17th- 16th Cent BC 'The Grave of the Crystals' (part of the prehistoric cemetery at Mycenae).

Pure quartz is not only a transformer of energy, it also allows communication and the alignment of particular pulse frequencies. This is why human technology is based on the properties of quartz (Silicon dioxide). Two elements: silicon and oxygen, make up almost three-quarters of our planet's crust. Silicon transmits life force (energy) in a way that we can use: 'In a controlled manner'. Pure quartz [crystalline silicon dioxide] resonates at a very precise frequency and is perfect for use in high-precision watches and clocks.

The earliest known use of this versatile crystal 'tool from the earth' is early man's use of flint, which was knapped [shaped] to make arrowheads, axes, scrapers and blades - as well as creating the sparks needed to ignite fire. Finely polished axes have been discovered as well as razor sharp stone blades dated from 6,000 to 8,000 BC - flint [flintstone] is a hard, sedimentary cryptocrystalline form of the mineral quartz.

Clear quartz is an 'energizer' .. yet, it does not only 'amplify' - there is much more to quartz, and for this reason every serious student of crystals should navigate using their own instincts to venture into the deeper substance of clear quartz. Darker denser obsidian or smoky quartz are stones (that due to their density) imply and invite depth. However, the substantial depth of clear quartz crystal is often overlooked.

The crystal ball is not necessarily a tool of 'depth'. Many seers and gifted psychics have used crystal balls or crystal skulls to reflect the common surface world including looking into the past and the future. This use does not navigate the true depths of the clear and mysterious properties of the 'divine' crystal.

Obsidian and smoky quartz will lend you their power and carry you effortlessly into the depths [whether you are ready or not], but clear quartz crystal will not carry you anywhere unless you have the power and the will to go there yourself. It is very much a clear spirit resonator for the soul of mankind - imposing nothing onto the mind of man; but awaiting your own unique inner-depth awakening. How else is one to dive into and through the depths of consciousness?

Note: It is never a good idea to take knowledge of stones and crystals from an outside source. The wisdom of the ancients came from a direct working relationship with the crystal beings or with the stone beings, as though interacting with an Earth intelligence operating system. In truth, the information each of us seeks can only come from the source. If a crystal or a stone will not share information, then reading what others have written will not change the person seeking knowledge. Crystals are not loaded with information waiting to be unloaded into the mind. Crystals are mirrors that connect the individual with themselves, and this is why they are such powerful tools. They do not give you anything other than what you give yourself. They do not show you anything other than what you show to yourself. That is the beauty of working with crystals. - Crystal Light-Seeds
