Cherry Quartz is an amazing + beautiful stone.  There is a lot of discourse in the various gemstone and pagan communities about this stone as it is an infusion of stone and mineral that is ultimately, made by man. As this is the case with most “gemstones” that are made by man in a lab or studio setting, the dissenting opinion is that it loses it’s “magick + voice” from the natural order of the stones/minerals from which it is derived.

These are magnificent stones which are made through the fusion natural stone and mineral in what becomes a modern alchemical process, manifesting into a new stone that holds truly unique and beneficial qualities for your practice, spirit and life.

Cherry Quartz is crafted utilizing natural reconstituted quartz and cinnabar; remnants of the cutting and shaping of these two metaphysically powerful gifts of the earth. The resulting material is then melted and given its beautiful, energetic flashes of rich red in the clear quartz.  The flashes of cinnabar in the quartz create striations, feathers, vortex and cloud formations.  These formations within can add to the magick of the gem when looking at the shape.  In the pictured point I see many feathers adding the lightness of the bird kingdom as well as fire faerie races.

Through this alchemy, a stunning and truly powerful new stone is brought to life, yielding both quartz AND cinnabar properties.

Clear Quartz is one of the most versatile and abundant stones available. Three of it’s most used and key attributes are energy amplification, program-ability and memory. Unlike other stones, which carry certain relatively fixed properties, clear quartz can be “programmed” by focused intention to help achieve a goal or purpose.

As a stone of Light, it can bring heightened spiritual awareness to whomever uses, carries or wears clear quartz. It provides a clear pathway for higher vibrational frequencies to be transmitted. Sleeping with clear quartz can enhance the vividness of dreams. Quartz can encourage clarity, enhance communication with guides, amplify psychic abilities and stimulate all chakras.

Cinnabar has associations, even before this processing with spiritual alchemy. It is said to have been used to attract abundance in wealth and support of altruistic businesses. Cinnabar assists the spiritual alchemist by stimulating psychic transformation and aids in the manifestation of spiritual energy. It also enhances spiritual perception.

Together you get a beautiful + unique gemstone with powerful magick + meaning.

Cherry Quartz brings new hope, acts as an anti-depressant, relief from anxiety, and tension. It is further considered to be used as an energy stone and a powerful healing stone for the spirit. You may find that you have increased vitality, confidence and vision in seeing things in the “bigger picture”.

    I love cherry quartz! I have an obelisk made of cherry quartz; it is beautiful to look at and makes a powerful center stone for a crystal grid.

    I have no problem with a “created” stone. I work sometimes with sea glass, also a created stone, and it has just as much potential as any stone or crystal I find or buy. Aqua obsidian is a new favorite of mine, causing lovely changes to happen within my subtle body and personal shield.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts regarding this eye-catching and powerful stone.

  • I had never seen this crystal before! It is such a beauty & in no way lessened by the way it’s made. Thank you for the wonderful information about it x
