As a curious fact I tell you that what feed the Earth’s magnetic field are quartz crystals.
Thanks to the continuous discoveries that are being made, there are more and more varieties of crystal quartz (crystalline quartz, smoky quartz, rutilated quartz, blue quartz …) with different properties that give you various states and vibrations.
When talking about minerals you must be aware of their ability to capture and transform energy. Quartz is characterized by its support, that is, by the amount of energy it can withstand. It is important because it also keeps it inside and expands it around it.
It is a stone of protection too. It will always amplify positive energy and reject or eliminate negative energy.
Due to its multiple properties, it has various uses in the industry such as optical instruments, watches, oscillation plates, speakers … It also has a resonant behavior, the ability to emit light when heated, dissipates static electricity and its piezoelectric properties are well recognized.

Quartz has the property of balancing and harmonizing bodies preventing any negative energy from appearing.
One of the most important properties that this material has is its therapeutic characteristic. As I have commented previously, it attracts and channels the universal energy in such a way that it unlocks most of the subtle bodies. Not only does it harmonize with each other but also with the physical body, this facilitates the healing of diseases.
Healers who specialize in crystals use quartz for various purposes. Some of these are the general healing of pain, dizziness, diarrhea, headaches, kidney diseases …
The transparent crystal quartz has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale so that it can scratch the glass. Internally it has a white streak, a concoid fracture and a hexagonal crystal structure.
Quartz is present in many types of rocks, igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. It is part of the group of silicates. There are two fundamental types of quartz:
· Macrocistalin: it is generally translucent and transparent
· Cryptocrystalline: they are usually opaque or translucent.
The fine quartz is transparent which means that the light passes through it without obstacles. It is common to find concoid fractures on their faces. It dissolves in hydrofluoric acid.
Emotional and mental properties

But it is important that each mineral has a different order. Thus, you will channel the virtues of the gems and get a better result.
On the other hand, quartz is used a lot for meditation since, as I mentioned earlier, it is good to balance the energy fields that exist in your body and in your aura.
