Quartz fosters balance in all aspects of your life. When you are more balanced, more
life force can flow through you to touch every aspect of your being. This increased
flow creates even greater balance, which in turn attracts even more life force. Because
its nature is to promote balance, Quartz will bring your entire being into balance in a
balanced way-slowly and steadily.
When worn around the neck, Quartz balances your whole being; when placed on specific
areas of the body, it balances those areas. For example, if you place Quartz spheres
on a disharmonious liver, the Quartz will attract life force to the organ, promoting
greater balance and helping the liver become healthier.
When you wear a necklace of Quartz spheres, the Quartz brings balance to your body's
physical processes, including those involved in the functioning of your endocrine,
organ, nervous, circulatory, digestive, and other systems. Quartz balances these processes
one at a time, beginning its work with whatever first requires its attention. As Quartz
draws more life force to your physical body, a healing may start to occur. Such healing
is not the direct effect of Quartz but of the increased life force that Quartz brings
to your body. As you continue to wear Quartz, your health will naturally improve, because
the more life force present, the less room there is for disease.
When you wear a Quartz necklace, additional life force also permeates your inner
aspects - your mind, memory, and emotions. This additional life energy nourishes,
balances, and aligns these inner aspects. This is important, because disease is usually
more than just physical; it often originates on the emotional and mental levels.
Quartz also fosters a greater awareness of your emotional being. It helps balance
emotional energies and incorporate the effects of new experiences into your consciousness.
With more emotional balance, you handle all situations in a more dignified and balanced
way. Because of this, Quartz may seem to protect you from the negative emotions of
others; however, you will simply become more able to place negative emotions in
perspective and to maintain balance. Positive emotions will appear enhanced but only
because you will want to hold onto them longer and enjoy them more.
Those who are familiar with the concept of karma¾the law of cause and effect, or the law
of action and reaction - know that an individual is always accountable for his actions.
Quartz can help you become aware of incidents from the past; it can also help you see
that your actions cause reactions. With this awareness, the effects of your actions can
become learning experiences rather than simply slaps out of the blue. This awareness will
also help you move through and handle current life situations that are associated with
Quartz sorts and organizes mental energies and helps you achieve greater mental balance.
To accomplish this, it improves either analytical or creative thinking, depending on your
needs. Which function is stimulated, which is suppressed, and the degree to which these
actions occur will be different for everyone. Once Quartz completes this adjustment, both
creative and analytical thinking will be strengthened, enlivened, and improved.
Quartz not only helps balance your physical and inner aspects, it also helps bring into
balance everything that comes into your life. If Quartz is worn continually, it will even
work to deflect those forces that upset balance, and it will attract what is needed to
Quartz spheres can take the energy in your aura, metabolize it, and return it to you in
a more usable form. Quartz can call to itself the life force that exists all around you
and in your inner levels. It can bring this energy into your physical body in a form that
the body can "digest" and use for its growth in consciousness. Ultimately, the
mission of Quartz is spiritual: when the body's energies are balanced, a more stable
foundation will be laid from which spiritual growth can flourish.
COLOR RAY HEALING
Quartz gently attracts a balance of all seven color rays to your body, emotions, and
mind. In the process, it corrects any color-ray imbalances in your physical and inner
aspects. When you become more balanced on this fundamental level, all aspects of life
Quartz's ability to attract all seven color rays makes it an ideal partner to wear with
a color-ray gemstone necklace. The color ray gemstones include Ruby, Carnelian, Citrine,
Emerald, Blue Sapphire, Indigo and Amethyst. Not only does Quartz enhance the flow of
life force through all levels of your being, it amplifies the effects of the color ray
gemstones and balances the proportions of color rays within you.
The use of sunlight in Quartz therapies can enhance their effects. (See specific
directions in the therapies described later in this chapter.) Artificial light, on the
other hand, should never be shined directly on Quartz. The Quartz can amplify the
artificial light spectra, producing harmful effects. Also, whenever artificial light is
directed at Quartz, the Quartz's energy becomes disrupted. This doesn't mean that Quartz
shouldn't be worn in artificial light; as long as the light is diffuse and not directed
at the spheres, it will have no harmful effect.
A solid Quartz necklace should never contain any kind of metal, such as a metal clasp or
gold beads. The Quartz would amplify the metal's energetic effects, which in most cases
would conflict with the mission of Quartz.
When Quartz is first fashioned into spheres, it is transparent. To prepare Quartz for use
in a therapeutic necklace, the surface of the spheres must be roughened through a polishing
process that makes the spheres appear white, or "frosted." Only Quartz spheres
with this frosted finish should be worn as necklaces. When unfrosted Quartz spheres
are drilled, the drill holes disrupt the energies at either end of the spectrum of
Quartz emanations, making such spheres disharmonious to the wearer. Frosting the spheres
re-establishes and maintains a pure, balanced flow of their energies. This property is
unique to Quartz.
To receive the maximum therapeutic benefits from Quartz, only optical or near-optical
quality spheres should be used. Optical-quality Quartz is colorless and clear of
inclusions to the naked eye. Near-optical Quartz has very slight inclusions in a small
portion of the sphere but is otherwise identical to optical quality. If a Quartz sphere
has anything more than very slight inclusions, its ability to balance your physical,
emotional, and mental aspects will be significantly inhibited.
Therapeutic Quartz also has no hint of yellow, gray, brown, or smoky coloration. Color
contamination and internal flaws greatly limit or even stop the sphere's inflow and
outflow of energy.
"Commercial quality" usually refers to gemstones commonly available on the
market. Within commercial quality is often a wide range, but seldom does it include
therapeutic-quality gemstones. People who wear commercial-quality Quartz will feel some
effects, since any gemstone will influence an individual's energetic field. However,
only the highest quality Quartz necklace - one with deeply frosted, optical or
near-optical quality spheres and clean drill holes - will spark the true changes and
transformations one seeks from this gemstone.
Optical-quality Quartz is extremely rare. Yet it is well worth seeking out, since a
necklace made of such Quartz possesses an incomparable energy.
LIFE FORCE INFUSION
Quartz energy is infused into a painful, injured, or otherwise disharmonious area to
bring more life energy and balance to the area. This Quartz infusion can be used as a
primary therapy or as a pre-treatment to help prepare any area of the body for another
CHAKRA BALANCING TECHNIQUE
This Quartz therapy balances the chakras as it increases the flow of life force through
them. The chakras are mended and soothed, overall energy is given a boost, and the
healing of chakra-related illnesses is accelerated. During the treatment, a Quartz
necklace is placed on one chakra or on all seven chakras in a specific sequence.
This Quartz therapy gently eases headache pain by bringing additional life force and
balance to the eyes and brain. By gazing through frosted Quartz spheres, strained eyes
are also soothed.
SINGLE SPHERE THERAPIES
Single Quartz spheres are placed on each of the seven major chakras to gently improve
the chakras' functioning. This therapy can help support the healing of an acute
illness or recovery from a demanding experience.
METABOLIC RESET TECHNIQUE
Single Quartz spheres are placed on six special points around the navel, known as the
Ancient Points, to reset and harmonize imbalanced biochemical and metabolic processes.
Single Quartz spheres are used to uplift the health of the eyes by gently cleansing the eyes of disharmonious
KARMIC REVELATION TECHNIQUE
An undrilled Quartz sphere is used as an aid to contemplation to help one become
more aware of the past circumstances that may be inhibiting the resolution of a
