Quartz crystal acts as an amplifier of energy and is good for healing and communication. It is believed it can be used to "wash away" negative energies from your body and environment. Quartz can also deflect negative energy away from you. Quartz is piezoelectric. Piezoelectric means electricity is produced by mechanical pressure on certain crystals (notably quartz or Rochelle salt); alternatively, electrostatic stress produces a change in the linear dimensions of the crystal allowing it to disperse negative energy from the air around it.

Keeping quartz close to your body will help to protect you from day to day stress. Quartz is a strong healing crystal. Crystals vibrate at different rates enabling them to heal different areas of the body. Quartz is the crystal most often used to make healing wands.

To use quartz as an aid in healing rub the affected area gently with your crystal. It helps if you visualize a warm golden light passing from the earth up along your spine, through your heart, out along your arms and through the crystal.

Quartz also has the ability to transform an imbalanced energy field. When you feel stressed the crystal can balance your energies and revitalize you. Quartz crystals are used in clearing blockages in your chakras. Passing a quartz crystal over each of your body's energy centers can help clear blockages allowing energy to flow through you.

Crystals are used in meditation and spiritual ceremonies; they have metaphysical properties that come from their shape or formation, as well as from the type of crystal. The crystal can be laid on the body during massage or bodywork, when a person is resting, or placed in drinking or bathing waters. It is claimed that an odd number of facets on the stone aid in healing, while an even number of facets create the best energizers. In general red, yellow, and orange stones are said to produce energy, clear and aquamarine stones are healers, and lavender and blue-violet stones create calming effects.

Natural quartz has straight edges, but these can be smoothed out to form balls and pebbles. Natural pieces of quartz crystal display characteristic cracks especially in larger specimens. Perfectly clear spheres or crystals with no imperfection all are likely to ordinary glass rather real quartz crystal.

Quartz amplifying abilities are believed to help increase psychic awareness enabling its user to see into other times and places. The shape of the crystal has no effect on its magical abilities. To activator your crystal you will need to carry it in your pocket for a week. This attunes the crystal to your body's energy. When you meditate, try lying down with your piece of quartz at the crown of your head, your "crown chakra" as you do this concentrate on your mind opening and your awareness expanding. Holding your quartz crystal against your third eye, the center of your forehead can give you inspirational insight. Holding your crystal in your hand before you sleep can help you to remember your dreams.

Quartz can also help you to focus your dreams. Before you sleep hold your quartz in your hand and thing about any problems you have. Place the quartz under your pillow while you sleep to help your mind work through the issues.

Whether you want to try and enhance your psychic awareness or create a more positive energy flow in and around you, Quartz crystals are not only a good aid, but a beautiful stone to add to your collection.
