METAPHYSICAL USES OF QUARTZ CRYSTALS & STONES
The metaphysical properties of the stones are mostly based on the type of formations and the shape of the crystals. There are many viewpoints in the world about this topic, so you must keep an open mind to sift through them to find your truth or what works best for you. Sometimes what is right for one person may not necessarily coincide with what is best for another. People are different, their energy patterns differ, and this relates to the way in which the stones and quartz crystals work with them.
Crystal formations are also alive within the mineral kingdom, which evolves at its own pace. This means that as changes occur in the mineral structures, there are variations in their energy patterns, so people continue to discover new energies and uses for their crystals and stones. This is particularly true with most crystal healers and magical practitioners who are sensitive to these energies and they know when to use one stone or another.
There are many different varieties of quartz crystals, several of which are semi-precious gemstones. Since antiquity, the varieties of quartz have been the most commonly used minerals in the making of jewelry and hard stone carvings. Pure quartz, traditionally called clear quartz or rock crystal, is clear and colorless. But there are other colored varieties which receive a different name. Among them we find: amethyst, citrine, ametrine, rose quartz, smoky quartz, milky quartz, rutilated quartz, tourmalated quartz, and others, depending on the aggregates of crystals or the mineral inclusions. There are other opaque gemstone varieties of quartz with mixed rocks that create awesome contrasting color patterns. Among them we find agate, carnelian, onyx, jasper, and other varieties.

OTHER AMAZING VARIETIES OF AURA QUARTZ CRYSTALS:
There are many different types of Aura Quartz crystals and each of them has its own vibration and uses. As previously mentioned, Aura Quartz is clear quartz that has been bonded with precious metals, usually gold or silver, or other metals, using an industrial process. The bonding process is permanent and cannot be removed, nor does it peel off. Each type of metal produces a different color when bonded. Although this crystal is man-enhanced, Aura Quartzes are very special because they bring together the vibration of quartz and metal, creating a vibration frequency that is not found in nature. The result is beautiful and the stones have a high vibration frequency if quality metals were used in the bonding. Quartz amplifies and expands the energy, while metals tend to banish or clear any negative energies, which makes an awesome combination for metaphysical uses. Follow your intuition to work with Aura Quartz, and always remember that crystals choose you, not the other way around! Below is a selection of other varieties of Aura Quartz Crystals.
