Quartz is the most abundant mineral on this planet and its qualities are just as profuse. Clear quartz holds the vibration of white light and thus carries the energy of all 7 rainbow rays of color. It energizes all chakras bringing healing on all levels. It is known as a stone of power, harmonizing and aligning human energies (thoughts, consciousness, and emotions) with that of the universe, making these greater energies available to humanity. It has been used by many cultures for meditation, purification, spiritual development, and diagnostic healing.
Hematite provides grounding and protection, dissolving negativity while transforming it to universal love. It attracts “kind” love, and assists one in perceiving the illusion of limitations. It is a stone of the mind, enhancing mental capacities while providing calmness. It aligns the spine and treats blood and nervous disorders.
