Gemstone Spotlight ~ Spirit Quartz

Anyone who has ever seen any of my altars or the plethora of gemstones around my home, knows that I have a weak spot for a few gemstones. One of those is Spirit Quartz.

Spirit Quartz is an unusual variety of quartz that often has a “candle-shaped” main crystal with that main crystal covered in small terminated points that resemble a druzy-type pattern with just the tip of the main crystal not covered. It is found in Amethyst, Citrine, White Quartz and rarely in Smoky Quartz. It is also known as Cactus Quartz or Porcupine Quartz and is found only in South Africa.

SpiritQuartzThis is a stone for bringing Spirit into play with all aspects of your life, which is in part why I have a piece of this on my small “table” work top altar. It helps to align our “mundane or everyday” life with that of our higher self or Spirit. It is a stone of alignment and harmony assisting with all aspects of the body (emotional, physical, mental and spiritual) to resonate fully together to achieve balance.

The piece I have currently on my altar is a beautiful smoky Amethyst (pictured left.) Amethyst Spirit Quartz directly links the conscious mind to the Higher Self, allowing one to comprehend and verbally express knowledge and wisdom that enters into the Higher Self to the “Everyday or Conscious” self. This is a very cleansing and purifying crystal form to the auric fields and can help repair holes in our etheric bodies to balance all aspects of Self. It can assist in the opening of the crown chakra to help us receive “downloads” of spiritual information and communication from our guides.  When you add in the properties for Smoky Quartz including the protective aspects you reap the benefits of working directly with spirit, enhanced organization and protection.   It’s easy to see why I love the stone sitting on my desktop altar so  much to lend it’s energies as I work each day.
