INTRODUCTION

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.

CRYSTAL FORMATIONS

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.



 ABUNDANCE QUARTZ        

Is a rare type of quartz, composed of a “host” 
or “mother”     crystal point with at least nine other smaller
points 
(single or double-terminated) situated vertically around the base.

 Abundance Quartz is used to assist our efforts to securing one's future.  Abundance crystal is a source of regeneration and growth, with abundant universal life force that causes like to attract like. They    can also be used as a talisman to  foster fertility in homes where children are desired, or in gardens to grow flowers or bring crops.

   

ACTIVATION CRYSTALS

   TIME-LINE)

Activation Crystals are recognised by an inclined window, which    is similar to, but less symmetrical than, the window formation. It is located on either side of the central (main) face. When to the left it is said to increase left brain function, and when to the right, right brain function. When referred to as time-line quartz, its properties are considered in terms of past and future. Left is said to give access to impressions from the past, right the future.


The properties of this activation crystals are closely linked to the window crystal, the only difference being the slight angle of the window. A parallelogram as opposed to the rhombus window crystals. As such its properties are not limited solely to the criteria already mentioned and share many of the properties of window crystals.





BARNACLE CRYSTALS

Barnacle crystals are recognized as crystals partially covered by many smaller, tiny crystals. They are essentially a type of mini-cluster and share the properties of clusters, one of the very best all-round healing crystals, especially good for chakra healing as the combined energy of the individual points combine to produce an energy greater than the sum of its parts.

These common but effective healing stones have properties related to issues of trust and dependence, especially in relation to the principle of family. Improves physical and intellectual fertility. In terms of chakra healing for physical fertility use on the sacral (2nd) chakra, for intellectual fertility use on the crown (7th) or heart (4th) chakra.




BRIDGE CRYSTALS

Bridge crystals are recognized as a smaller crystal which is part in, and part out of a larger quartz crystal. When the smaller crystals are relatively deep they are often referred to as "penetration bridge" crystals.

"Bridge crystals facilitate bridging between the inner and outer worlds, between the self and others residing on this planet, and between the self and other worlds... and are quite beneficial when one is working with the aspects of spirituality and with the advanced metaphysical areas, and attempting to share this knowledge with others.”

The properties of this very useful healing stone facilitate passing over or entering what was previously impassable or un-enterable. The essential geometry of the crystal is penetrated, providing access to inner worlds and issues previously inaccessible. Appreciated by shamans and those interested in "journeying" and useful for meditation.

Bridge crystals are useful for improving teaching skills, communication and group cohesion. In chakra healing they are useful in helping to remove blockages.





CANDLE/ PINEAPPLE/ CELESTIAL QUARTZ

Candle, cactus, spirit and pineapple quartz are essentially the same formation though the latter tend to be stouter crystals. The small terminations covering the sides of the main, central crystal have the look of a candle covered in wax drips or the textured skin of the pineapple. Spirit quartz was originally named by African miners, its gorgeous amethyst shades reminded them of methylated spirits. For chakra healing this colour specifically resonates with the crown chakra (7th), the delicate pink shades are more in tune with the heart chakra (4th) and the earthier brown and grey tones are useful grounding and base chakra (1st) healing stones. This resonance indicates that the properties healing crystals are dependent not just on type but colour.

These crystals combine some of the properties of the multi-dimensional elestial and abundance of the barnacle formations. Excellent crystals for information retrieval and meditation and its form, the spiky "shell" also indicates it’s protective properties and usefulness as a shielding stone. 





Spirit Quartz (above)  Celestial Quartz (below)



CATHEDRAL QUARTZ 

Cathedral crystals are recognised by their "architectural” form, which bears a resemblance to multiple towers, like those of a castle or gothic cathedral.

Their unique metaphysical properties are said to give access to the Akashic records and past lives. For chakra healing they can be used on any or all of the chakras, but have a specific resonance with the heart chakra, which being central to the seven chakras, encourages balance. This useful healing stone shares multi-terminations with elestials, which they also share some properties with; these are summarised in the following quote.

"The Elestial quartz crystal is recognized by natural multi-terminations over the body or face of an etched and/or layered crystal. The Elestial contains the absolute and ultimate essential wisdom and can provide for transfer of this insight to the physical intellect via the higher-self.”






CHANNELLING CRYSTAL

The main, front face is large and seven sided. Its opposite, rear face is a smaller triangle. Channelling crystals are an excellent example of how the properties of numbers relate to the metaphysical properties of crystals. Seven indicates wisdom and mysticism. Three indicates understanding what previously appeared irreconcilable, by the introduction of another factor/deeper vision. This vision "surfaces" as the triangle is the manifestation of a surface from a line in geometric progression. The combination of the numbers 7 and 3 always indicates a movement (3) of wisdom (7).

"The channelling crystal provides for a means of channeling and expressing truth and wisdom from both the inner realms of perfection and other worlds. It is symbolic of the student, the professor, the mystic and the seeker of wisdom.The channelling crystals can be used to access the wisdom from "within and without". They can be used to bring forth light and love from the most truthful and knowledgeable portions of the self. Sometimes there can be an encounter with other entities from whom one can learn; always check the information, given by the entity, with the personal inner knowing."

Channelling crystals are one of the most accessible healing stones, are extremely easy to work with and relatively common. Their properties facilitate a connection between our conscious mind and innate wisdom, as well as other planes of existence. The benefits of such an opportunity would be hard to exaggerate. Extremely useful for those who have a desire to develop their psychic abilities. For healers they effortlessly boost to intuitive insights into what is required, both for themselves and clients.








CLUSTERS

Clusters are crystals grouped on a common matrix. Where there is no matrix the crystals bridge together. These wonderfully healing crystals encourage a sense of community, creating harmony and removing negativity from its environment, whether that is on a body or in a room. One of the easiest crystals to use for chakra healing. The intrinsic group energy of clusters easily removes blockages and strengthens the all the chakras. The same properties make them the first choice for cleansing and activating other healing stones. Clusters sometimes contain many metaphysical formations, their properties all working together harmoniously.

"Quartz clusters serve to bring the "group” energy of the associated crystal to the surrounding environment, enhancing harmony and peace in groups, in the family, and in other social and/or business environments.”

"The quartz crystal is the connection between the physical dimension and the dimensions of the mind. It can be used to communicate with minerals, plants, animals, and intelligent forces outside the physical dimension. In early times, when all things were thought to be parts of a greater living consciousness, the quartz crystal was believed to synchronize the individual and total consciousness with that of the heavens and advanced life-forms."





CURVED QUARTZ

This curved quartz formation is recognised as curvature of the whole crystal, causing it to bend slightly, or more commonly, curvature of individual sides in an otherwise straight crystal as in the picture. The curvature is caused by excessive amounts of energy being channelled by these crystals during their growth. The earths crust is 12% quartz (by volume) for a reason, the energetic properties of these wonderful crystals are working long before we find them.

"In the Curved Quartz Crystal curvature is produced during the developmental stages of growth and is a rather rare occurrence. The structure of the curved crystal provides for a continuous (when in ones energy field) alignment of the physical meridians and the nervous system, and the alignment of the physical, emotional, mental, etheric, astral, etc., bodies, singularly and with one another.”

"The Curved Quartz Crystal emanates a gentle, but powerful energy, and can be used to cleanse the aura, promote flexibility in ones attitudes, and to provide strength to ones decisions. It allows one to see the inner workings of any situation. It has been used in the treatment of spinal dis-alignment.” 

The properties of this exceptional healing stone allows it to smooth out imbalances in the energy flow of the meridians and subtle bodies, enabling the body to re-establish a healthier, more balanced equilibrium. Its gentle but powerful energy brings balance to all subtle bodies, singularly and with one another, making it a good choice in chakra healing. This benefit extends to the nervous system and is therefore useful in easing tension.

Curved quartz crystals help us see beyond convention and break it appropriately. An uncommon and powerful healing stone with unique properties.









DOUBLE TERMINATED


Instead of growing from a matrix, double terminated crystals (floaters) grow from a central "seed", in the same way quartz is produced for the electronics industry. This produces two points in opposite directions. Remarkable on its own, but these crystals are not only capable of structuring, storing, transmitting and amplifying diverse energies, the properties of quartz in general, but being an independent whole, posses extra properties. It is these properties of energy creation and amplification that make them so prized as healing crystals. 

These relatively common crystals have an overwhelmingly positive effect on health. Simply carry, put under your pillow at night, or place in drinking water to produce a simple but effective gem elixir. DT's are one of the best stones for chakra healing as they can be used on any chakra or touching the coloured healing stones to amplify their effect.

"Double terminated crystals can assist in providing one protection from mental and physical harm. Carrying a double terminated crystal can enable one to maintain ones energy shield. Excellent for astral projection and dreaming - place them under you pillow at night and they can increase and intensify the dream state. They are also excellent for use in meditation.” 

Worn or carried, their properties act without conscious direction, intensifying the aura, providing subtle and physical protection. Ayurveda, the extremely sophisticated medical knowledge of ancient India, understands the aura to be the first wave of the immune system. The benefits of strengthening the aura are more tangible than most would imagine, giving a feeling of having more energy and shielding from unwanted frequencies, sometimes called etheric pollution.










DOW CRYSTALS


Dow crystals are recognized as having 6 faces (as always), with 7-3-7-3-7-3 face sides. A remarkable and rare healing stone, the properties of which efficiently combine the archetypes of 3 and 7 perfectly and harmoniously.

Those interested in numerology or sacred geometry will immediately recognize such a structure as significant. The most symmetrical and balanced of all the crystals, combining the properties of both channelling and transmitter crystals, as well as exhibiting their own unique properties. Dows are the ultimate crystal for balancing energies and are therefore healing to the physical, mental and emotional bodies. In chakra healing they provide a tuning fork that resonates with each chakra to "remind" it of it's innate harmonious, balanced frequency. 

In looking at the qualities of these numbers we can receive much insight into understanding the potency of the geometry of crystals. In music, 7 notes span 3 octaves, there are 7 chakras and white light is divisible into 7 main colours. There are many trinities. 3 primary colours, 3 gunas (modes of consciousness in Vedic philosophy), the "action, reaction and resultant" of the physicist, the past, present and future of time and in Arthurian legend, only 3 knights found the Grail. The easiest way to understand this archetype of 3 in Dow crystals is 1, 2, through. What comes through is the wisdom of 7.

Occasionally, the triangles of Dows are so tiny that they appear not to be there. However, as quartz must have 6 faces and 2 of the 3 seven sided faces meet where only 5 faces can be counted, it is a mathematical impossibility for the triangle not to be there. Crystal geometries and their resultant properties are never fickle. They are quite literally "set in stone".

"Dows combine the qualities of the transmitter and channelling crystal. It also provides for a continuous connective force between the holder of the crystal and "All That Is". It is the crystal for creativity and service to humanity through spiritual and mystical pursuits. It allows access to the records relating to each question or thought and, even without focusing, provides intuitive awareness in all situations".






ELESTIALS

Elestial crystals are recognized by multi-terminations on the body and/or faces of a layered and/or etched crystal.

An elestial is far more complex, energetically, geometrically and in terms of properties, than a single crystal or cluster. In the analogy of a single crystal being pocket calculator, an elestial is a computer. In their natural environment, they act to direct, focus and integrate the "ordinary" crystals in the work they naturally do in the earth. In their interaction with humans, they appear to be able to integrate disparate perceptions, allowing for a more mature understanding of the area being contemplated. Elestials work to bring that which is needed within the grasp of the conscious mind. They can help us remember our immortality, bringing heart and intellect together to recognize an all encompassing, intrinsic spiritual unity. The keyword to help understand the properties of these fascinating and mysterious crystals is integration. 

"The elestial can be used to stabilize brain wave frequencies and to ameliorate erratic and/or confused thoughts; it can further assist in producing an expanded state of awareness and an encouraging energy to speed one toward the light. It assists one in summoning vitality in order to produce advancement towards the eternal brilliance of the spiritual self."

"The Elestial is the "enchanted crystal”, bringing with it the concepts of Siva and the understanding that after transition from one phase of life, or from the physical body, newness will be re-instilled. It provides the user with "a hug from the wind in the willow”, allowing for flow in change and actualization.” 

"The elestial quartz crystal is recognized by natural multi-terminations over the body or face of an etched and/or layered crystal. The Elestial contains the absolute and ultimate essential wisdom and can provide for transfer of this insight to the physical intellect via the higher-self. The elestial can assist in activating and furthering the activities of the third-eye and can stimulate an in crease in abilities associated with clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience.”









ENHYDRO CRYSTALS


Enhydro is Greek for "water within". These crystals contain pockets of pure water, mysteriously trapped for hundreds of thousands of years, before pollution and contaminated water tables were even heard of.

Water has been found in chalcedony, agate and quartz and is usually perceived by the presence of moving gas bubbles. Very occasionally, there are pockets of water with no bubble but a tiny floating inclusion. It is also possible to have water pockets with neither bubbles or inclusions. These can be very difficult to identify as such

In terms of the 4 elements water has traditionally indicated the emotions; earth-body, water-emotions, air-mind, fire-spirit. These exceptionally healing crystals can have a profound effect on our emotional life. Water that cannot move becomes stagnated - as emotions that cannot be expressed stagnate. Enhydros contain water trapped for that may have been trapped for hundreds of thousands of years, but the water has remained clean and pure. This is the primary indicator of the properties of these crystals; protection and purification of the emotional body. In chakra healing they can be used and any chakra, but have a special resonance with the solar plexus emotional centre. 








ETCHED QUARTZ


Etched crystals are recognised by abrasions and/or intricate indentations, often forming patterns or textures. The properties of etched quartz means they are often used in meditation. Crystals with more complex patterning can be used for scrying. 

"This etched formation has been used to facilitate contact and the transfer of information from the ancient Egyptian civilizations and from Lemuria and Atlantis …the markings contain information of experiences in which they have participated. They also contain information with respect to the healing methodology which has been proved successful over eons of time and throughout the universe. The etched quartz crystal is usually a personal meditation crystal …will be beneficial to ones personal development and/or will provide information which will assist one in helping another. The Etched quartz is usually a personal meditation crystal.”





FADEN QUARTZ   


Faden crystals have one or more milky, "feathery" thread lines, usually running edge to edge through the crystal. This is usually perpendicular to the crystals growth and is unique to Fadens. They are prized as the ultimate "connection" crystal, either with other people, entities, ideas or other dimensions.

Faden lines manifest primarily in tabular shaped crystals. The properties of "tabbies" make them one of the best crystals for psychic development, communication and information retrieval of all types. The combination of the properties of Faden and tabby crystals makes them extremely useful for those with a desire to increase their realms of perception and intuition. The properties of the Faden thread help us establish the connection which is amplified by the tabby.

"The Faden is a stone that facilitates "mending" on all levels. A crystal of connection, stimulating and furthering connective forces between the self and that which is chosen as the recipient. A stone for finding ones complement on the physical plane, serving as a magnetic field to attract ones counterpart and to facilitate an unfathomable energy transfer between oneself and the other."

"Fadens provide for a continuous [when in ones energy field] alignment of the physical meridians and the nervous system, and for the alignment of the physical, emotional, mental, etheric, astral, etc., bodies, singularly and with one another.







FAIRY CLUSTERS


Fairy crystals are clusters of extremely fine, delicate, bright crystals. There is no possibility of getting these beautiful healing stones any other way than by very careful hand mining. 

Their unique properties are derived from their often miniature, architectural refinement. Their frequency lifts the consciousness exactly the right amount to help those sensitive enough to perceive our very close neighbours. They appear to emit "fairy" energy because their structural refinement resonates with that plane. Their slender crystals are usually lasers, so they also share the properties of that formation. In chakra healing they cleanse and dissipate unwanted energies and have a special resonance with the crown chakra.






GOLDEN HEALERS   


Golden healers are recognised by a complete or partial golden yellow to orange-brown transparent coating, an iron hydrate. Occasionally this golden mineral permeates the entire crystal. They are energetic, an excellent general tonic crystal and are often extremely beautiful. 

The highest ratio of golden healers mined from any location, is to be found in the Celtic quartz mined in Wales by Kacha Stones.

"The golden healer has been used to incite healing on all levels. It is an excellent stone to use in all healing situations and promotes the recognition of methods and techniques which will further recoveries from all disorders."






GROUNDING CRYSTALS


Grounding crystals are recognized as having a main face with eight sides. These crystals help maintain a pragmatic approach to life, especially relevant for those trying to develop "higher" energies. Their grounding effect enables those with their "head in the clouds" to still possible to act effectively on this plane and not be too "spaced out". Useful for healers and practitioners of all energy treatments.

In Sanskrit the number 8 is o-cata-srah "twice four", which became okta in Greek and octo in Latin. So understanding this more complex and refined "4", is they key to understanding the number 8 and the grounding crystal. Four is the number of the "Mother substance", matter, which sacred geometers know becomes manifest "at 4", the number of stability and gross manifestation. 

"Now this, monks, is the noble truth of the way that leads to the cessation of sorrow: this is the noble Eightfold way; namely, right views, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration." Buddha.






HARLEQUIN QUARTZ


An extremely beautiful formation, frequently and most exotically found in the Brandberg quartz of Namibia as pictured. Lepidocrocite and hematite inclusions form amazing interiors. Occasionally they form in recognisable patterns indicating the internal energetic structures of their host crystal. They combine the properties of quartz with these two minerals, which being red, stimulates physical energy and circulation. They are said to intensify devotional practices.

"Harlequin Quartz quartz containing red dots or strings of lepidocrocite. It provides a beautiful "dancing" energy, which when activated, stimulates the energy flow on all levels. It can be used to stimulate the base chakra and to provide for a direct pathway between the base chakra, and the heart chakra; it can hence be used to direct and to intensify natural proclivities. It activates all of the qualities of the base chakra, the heart chakra, and the crown chakra, and provides physical energy and vitality to the physical body. It further stimulates the healing qualities of the heart and the associated attributes of loving consciousness. It can also be used to balance the polarity of ones body with the higher bodies and to open and balance the meridians of the physical body, stimulating alignment of the physical and ethereal nervous systems.”






HERKIMER DIAMOND    


Characterised as stout, extremely bright (hence "diamond”) DT’s, named after their location in Herkimer County, USA. However, it has become usual to refer to any exceptionally bright stout DT as a Herkimer, despite its original location. The Himalayan Herkimer is an example of this. An exception to this general rule is the Arkimer, similarly formed and bright quartz mined in Arkansas.

"It is quite important to use a Herkimer diamond prior to "laying-on-of-stones”, or in other healing situations. The alleviation of tension and the calming of the outer bodies and the physical body help to align the energy structure of the user. Herkimer diamonds assist one in clearing the body-mind system of unconscious fears and repressions, allowing for total relaxation and expansion of the life energy.

The Herkimer diamond is known as an "attunement stone”. It can be used to attune oneself with another person, environment or activity. In addition, the Herkimer diamond stimulates clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities and can assist one in prescience and telepathic communication.”







ISIS CRYSTALS


Fairly symmetrical, 5 sided Isis faces are not that common. They have special significance in relation to crystals working with people, indicated by the "human" number 5 and are often used as "teacher" crystals. The number 5 also indicates the feminine principle and regeneration in terms of both its mathematical and geometric properties. These crystals enhance the feminine principle, helping restore the balance lost through a misuse of masculine energy, assertion, ego and power.

Phi, the Divine ratio, is the ratio of the segments in a 5-pointed star (pentagram) and was considered sacred to Plato and Pythagoras mystery schools. Each larger (or smaller) section is related by the phi ratio. This is an indication of the regeneration association. So the number 5 is also closely related to the golden proportion, as are all quartz crystals, their points angled the same as the perfectly proportioned Great Pyramids, which also conform to phi.




KEY CRYSTALS


Key crystals are recognized by an indentation on the side or face of a crystal, usually six sided as it's a specific type of growth interference caused by another quartz crystal. They are used to gain access to information from which you are normally excluded. Healing concepts and illusive aspects of ourselves can be unlocked. Useful for healers and intuitive diagnostics.

"Used to unlock the "doors" to healing concepts and those aspects of the self which tend to be illusive. It also assists one in accessing that which is hidden in any situation".



LASER QUARTZ


Recognised as a relatively long and slender crystal. They are an excellent crystal for developing focus, especially in terms of meditation and intuition. Unsurprisingly, they make excellent wands and being quartz naturally resonate with the intention of the user.

"The use of laser wands during meditation facilitates the establishment of a finer communication with other worlds, the crystalline world, and the inner world of the self.

Laser wands often have unique etching and or/markings upon them. They were once used in the healing temples of Lemuria, the markings indicating the records of experiences "they have seen”. It can be used to clear an area of negativity, to create protective barriers and to beam healing energy to oneself or another.”





ABUNDANCE QUARTZ is a rare type of quartz, composed of a “host” or “mother” crystal point with at least nine other smaller points (single or double-terminated) situated vertically around the base. Abundance Quartz is used to assist our efforts to securing one's future.  Abundance crystal is a source of regeneration and growth, with abundant universal life force that causes like to attract like. They can also be used as a talisman to foster fertility in homes where children are desired, or in gardens to grow flowers or bring crops.



AMETHYST is a beautiful violet variety of quartz crystals that ranges from a bright to dark or dull purple color. Sometimes amethyst and citrine are found growing in the same crystal and is called ametrine. Amethyst is considered a healing stone for spirituality and protection that connects to the Divine and brings clarity of the mind. Purple amethyst has represented power through the ages. Carved, polished amethyst stones and gems were used by the Egyptians all the way back to 4000 BC, and in ancient times there was a believe among the Greeks that this stone would protect its owner from intoxication or drunkenness. Amethyst crystals stimulate the crown chakra. It is widely used as an aid in meditation, helping you to relax and calm your thoughts to elevate your vibration.



CITRINE is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown due. Sometimes citrine and amethyst can be found together in the same crystal, which is then referred to as ametrine. Citrine has been referred to as the "merchant's stone" or "money stone" because it is said that it brings prosperity, happiness, success, good fortune, mental clarity, emotional balance, communication, and healing to its owner. Citrines carry a very positive vibration, in tune with the Om sound, and hardly ever needs cleansing.



ACTIVATION QUARTZ (Time-line crystals) are recognized by an inclined window, which is similar, but less symmetrical than the main window formation. It can be located on either side of the center face. When located to the left side, it is said that it increases the left brain function, and when to the right, the right brain function. When referred to as “time-line” quartz, this means that its properties are considered in terms of past and future. Left is said to give access to impressions from the past, and right the future.



ANGEL AURA QUARTZ is a clear quartz crystal bonded with platinum and silver, sometimes even gold, or with traces of other metals that impart them a particular color. This stone exhibits a white and light blue rainbow colors with a silvery iridescence that reminds us of the gossamer wings of angels. It carries a very loving and sweet energy, stimulating the spirit and elevating one’s mood. Meditating with this crystal allows one to enter a state of serenity and peace, purification and rest. Angel quartz is an excellent crystal to channel communication with your angels and guides. It is an extremely rare stone and a real treasure if you find it, but beware of the faked Angel Aura stones which are man-enhanced. 



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. (Hover over each one to read their names.) 

ANGEL PHANTOM QUARTZ, also called Amphibole quartz, is a milky-white quartz that contains reddish or yellowish incursions of hematite or other minerals. Angel Phantom Quartz crystals have inclusions that resemble angel wings, hence its name. Metaphysically, it is believed to shield someone from the abrasiveness of others and is especially helpful to those who have been emotionally or verbally abused. 

BARNACLE QUARTZ, also called Fairy Dust Quartz, is a type of crystal that has several smaller host crystals attached, covering some parts of the main one. Barnacle Quartz is mostly used for meditation, or as an aid in relationships when you are trying to refocus on yourself and your own life. It reminds the user to keep perspective on the self without getting too confused with whatever is happening around. Use this crystal in your meditation if you feel disoriented or lost, or are having doubts about your future direction or pursuits.

BLACK TOURMALINE QUARTZ, as its name indicates, it's a quartz crystal with inclusions of black tourmaline needles. This crystal relieves fears and gives a sense of power and protection that makes you feel more secure. Black tourmaline quartz crystals are mostly used as personal talismans to carry in your pocket or to make into a necklace. They are also considered to be powerful healers against negative energies, and can actually turn back an evil spell cast upon you.

BLUE TOURMALINE QUARTZ, as its name indicates, it's a quartz crystal with inclusions of blue tourmaline needles. This type of quartz crystals fosters feelings of respect, compassion and discretion. They teach us grace, sensitivity to the needs of others, and tenderness in our charitable dealings. Blue Tourmaline quartz crystals are rare and they are mostly used as personal talismans or as a pendant. 

BRIDGE QUARTZ refers to a smaller crystal growing out of another one in a right angle (as shown on the left picture), with the base of the smaller crystal inside the larger, but most of the smaller outside the larger one. Bridge Quartz is mostly used to meditate and for spiritual healing. Healers sometimes combine this crystal with other specific stones to use them as facilitators and conduits. 

If the smaller crystal extends from the larger one in both directions, and part of it is completely enclosed within the larger, it is not a Bridge Quartz but a Penetrator Quartz (See top, right). 
If no section of the smaller one is completely contained within the larger and both ends protrude, then it is a Cross Crystal Quartz(See bottom, right.) 

BUDDHA QUARTZ is a crystal quartz with a phantom inside that looks like a sitting Buddha viewed through the main facet. It is considered to be a stone of peace and enlightenment and therefore good to use in meditation and spiritual practices to seek illumination. 

BURR QUARTZ is an awesome three-dimensional crystal cluster. They are powerful energizers and multi-directional amplifiers of the life force. The best specimens would have no center matrix and points radiating from the center only. A Burr has no base, no limits, and no restrictions, so this crystal represents freedom, joy, learning, expansion, and growth in all directions. Burr quartzes are used in Feng Shui to place in difficult corners of the home or office, with restrictions that may be affecting the healthy flow of energy to redirect the Ch'i and amplify it.



CATHEDRAL QUARTZ is a rare type of quartz, which consists of one prominent point with parallel points stepping up around all sides.
