The Benefits of Quartz

Excerpt from Gemisphere Therapeutic Gemstones by Michael Katz.


Search Amazon for Crystal Healing Books


The Mission of Quartz

Quartz attracts life force from the unlimited source of life at the core of your being and brings it into the physical world. As this life force flows through you, it nourishes and balances your mind, emotions, and physical body and corrects color ray imbalances within them. Because this stream of vital energy touches every facet of your being, all aspects of your life improve. The life energy Quartz draws through your body and into the atmosphere also provides vital spiritual nourishment for the Earth.

Indications for Wearing a Therapeutic Quartz Necklace

For men

You can wear a Quartz necklace when you wish to do any of the following:

  • Increase your energy
  • Bring more balance, grace, and harmony to your life
  • Enhance the effects of a color ray gemstone necklace*
  • Promote balance in the relationship among your body, mind, and emotions
  • Foster balance within and among your body's physical processes
  • Balance your mind's creative and analytical aspects
  • Regain your balance after a life-changing or traumatic experience
  • More easily learn from past experiences so you can make better choices

* Therapeutic gemstone necklaces that contain Ruby, Carnelian, Citrine, Emerald, Blue Sapphire, Indigo, or Amethyst

You can also use a Quartz necklace to help resolve any of the following conditions:

  • Low or sluggish energy

Benefits of Wearing Therapeutic Quartz Necklace

Quartz fosters balance in all aspects of your life. When you are balanced, more life force can flow through you to touch every aspect of your being. This increased flow fosters even greater balance, which in turn attracts more life force. Because Quartz's nature is to promote balance, it brings 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 stomach, the Quartz will attract life force to the stomach, promoting greater balance there and helping the stomach 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 requires its attention most. 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.

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 your emotional, karmic, and mental bodies. This is important, because disease is usually more than just physical; it most often originates on the emotional and mental levels.

Quartz 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 can 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 your own balance. Positive emotions will appear enhanced, but only because you will appreciate and enjoy them more.

Those who are familiar with the concept of karma, the law of cause and effect, or the law of action and reaction, know that an individual is ultimately 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 better handle your current life situations that are associated with past experiences.

Quartz also 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 subtle bodies, 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 your balance, and it will attract what is needed to maintain your balance.

Quartz spheres can take the energy that is in your aura, metabolize it, and return it to you in a more usable form. Quartz calls to itself the life force that exists all around you and in your subtle bodies. It can bring this energy into your physical body in a form that the body can "digest" and use for its development. Ultimately, the mission of Quartz is spiritual: when the bodies' energies are balanced, a more stable foundation will be laid from which spiritual growth can flourish.

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 subtle bodies. When you become more balanced on this fundamental level, all aspects of life improve.

Using Quartz for Color Ray Healing

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 ratios of color rays within you.

Metal and Quartz

A solid Quartz necklace should never contain any kind of metal, such as a metal clasp, chain, or beads. The Quartz would amplify the metal's energetic effects, which in most cases conflict with the action of Quartz.

Frosted Quartz

When therapeutic-quality 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 in necklaces. When unfrosted Quartz spheres are drilled for stringing, the drill holes disrupt the energies at both ends 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 colorless Quartz.

How to Recognize Therapeutic-Quality Quartz

To receive the maximum therapeutic benefits from Quartz, only optical or near-optical quality spheres should be used. Optical-quality Quartz is colorless, clear, and free of flaws visible to the naked eye. Such flaws include cracks and inclusions, or foreign matter. Near-optical Quartz has very slight flaws in a small portion of the sphere but is otherwise identical to optical quality. If a Quartz sphere has anything more than very slight flaws, its ability to balance your physical, emotional, and mental bodies will be significantly inhibited.

Therapeutic Quartz also has no hint of yellow, gray, brown, or smoky coloration. Color contamination and internal flaws greatly limit the spheres' inflow and outflow of energy.

People who wear lower-quality Quartz may still 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 precisely cut 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 radiates an incomparable energy.

Quartz Helps Her Find Deep Inner Contentment

"When I wear a Quartz necklace, I feel deep inner contentment. I feel very connected to myself, to other people, and to the world around me, and that brings me a great sense of peace and happiness." -- Dr. Padeen Quinn, Portland, Oregon
