Quartz is used to bring focus to something one wants or align with and accessing information from the higher level of consciousness. Quartz comes in a variety of unique shapes and has a variety of characteristics with specific names each having a different gift. Many spiritual beings realize the significance of this crystal and a variety of groups use the sacred power of a quartz crystal. It can aid manifesting positive and good things into one's life.

Alkali Etchings

Etched crystals have external markings that appear to be hieroglyphics that are inscribed on the sides or faces of the quartz.


Amphibole Quartz

Amphibole quartz is a milky white quartz that contains one or more amphibole minerals which are mostly asbestos silicates (most commonly Actinolite and Tremolite, others include Glaucophane, Hornblende, and Riebeckite-brown, blue or black). These fibrous asbestos minerals give the opaque milky appearance to the quartz. 


Often called Angel Quartz because they have inclusions that resemble wings. Angel quartz shield one from the abrasiveness of others and is especially helpful when one has been verbally or emotionally abused. This is often called a phantom quartz.
