Clear Quartz is known as the "master healer" and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz draws off negative energy of all kinds, neutralising background radiation, including electromagnetic smog or petrochemical emanations. It balances and revitalises the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory. Stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance, harmonises all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.You can meditate with your quartz crystal to “program” it with your intention, and the quartz will amplify that intention out into the world. It is believed that quartz enhances the power of prayer and affirmation. This amplifying attribute makes quartz an invaluable stone for healers, and those who wish to attract love or prosperity or whatever you program the crystal to do. If used in conjunction with other stones, it will enhance and strengthen the energies of those minerals as well. It is supremely beneficial for manifesting and channeling energy.The ancient Greeks referred to quartz as krustallos meaning ‘icy cold’ as they believed the clear quartz was a form of permanent ice, so cold it would never thaw.Due to its widespread occurrence clear quartz is included in the legends as well as the creation myths of many cultures.The Japanese word for clear quartz translated roughly as ‘perfect jewel’ because they believed it symbolised space, purity and patience. In both Australia and South America one of the creation myths involves a cosmic serpent who is the creator of life and who was lead by a clear quartz crystal. It is also the substance most commonly identified as maban in Australian Aboriginal mythology. Maban was the substance from which the Shamans and elders drew their magical powers in the mythology.
