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. Crystal users believe that by directing one’s mental energy into a crystal one can bring about a sharpening of inner vision and increased psychic and bodily awareness.
ACTINOLITE is an amphibole silicate mineral with the chemical formula Ca2(Mg4.5-2.5Fe0.5-2.5)Si8O22OH2. It crystallizes in the form of long blades or a skinny needle-like structures. This crystal is mainly found in its distinct dark green color, but can also be seen as white, yellow, grey or black. Actinolite is said to balance body, mind and spirit, enhancing higher awareness. It is believed that it can offer psychic protection, strengthen the edge of ones energy field, and allow the expansion of ones aura. If you’d like to set an intention to release unwanted aspects of yourself, actinolite it thought to help smooth the process of letting go.
