QUARTZ (silicon dioxide), one of the most abundant minerals on earth, comprises about 12% of the earth’s upper crust. Usually found in compact masses, it sometimes crystallizes as beautiful “points” easily identified by their six distinct faces. Quartz comes in a variety of colors including purple amethyst, golden citrine, brown smoky, pink rose quartz and clear rock crystal. Quartz crystals are piezoelectric: When trapped or squeezed, the crystal produces an electrical current from the opposite face. It is this property that has made quartz so important to modern technology, especially electronics and computers.
If you are a believer in its metaphysical properties, Epidote Included Quartz is said to be an effective crystal for the cardiovascular system. It is said to strengthen the heart, and bring harmony along with correct functioning of all the major bodily organs. Epidote Quartz is also said to clear physical, emotional, and/or spiritual blockages.
