Clear Quartz: Mirror of the Soul


Clear quartz is the most vital element of any crystal collection. It contains within it the full spectrum of colors, and can thus be used for a variety of purposes: psychic and emotional healing, programming for any of your goals, to balance the chakras, or as a general meditational aid.

We call clear quartz the mirror of the soul because it reflects and radiates that in us which is divine. Someone once said, "We are not human beings trying to be spiritual, we are spiritual beings trying to be human." As quartz crystal embraces and includes all colors so it can help us to experience all aspects of what it means to be spiritual/human.

The most common form in which quartz appears is as a six-sided crystal whose termination (point) is also six-sided. It can be used in many ways.

  1. You can hold it in your dominant hand while you meditate.
  2. Balance your chakras by rotating a quartz crystal in a spiral pattern over each chakra point (see the section on the chakras for information on where they're located.
  3. Program a quartz crystal for your goals. (See You and Your Crystals: Partners in Creation for information on programming.)
  4. When a quartz crystal is placed with another crystal it enhances the other's energy.
  5. For stones which bring blockages to the surface but don't dissolve them, such as lapis, obsidian, and malachite, you can partner them with a quartz, which does have dissolving abilities.

We also have an article on particular formations of quartz points, such as gemini, tabular, double-terminated, and channeling crystals.
