The World's Most Perfect Crystal: Clear Quartz

AmyDeMarco has been studying and working with crystals for many years. Clear and rose quartz are among her favorites.


Quartz is a simple, common yet very powerful crystal—it is perhaps the most recognizable crystal around. It can be completely transparent, opaque or a mixture of clear and opaque. There are different types of quartz which come in different colors. The most common are clear, smokey and rose quartz. In this article, we will be focusing on clear quartz.

If you are a beginner and just learning about crystals, clear quartz is an excellent crystal to start with. Versatile, it can be used alone or with other crystals. This is a stone that has many properties but is primarily known for its healing properties. In fact, clear quartz is known as 'The Master Healer'.

Clear quartz naturally amplifies the energy of the people who use it and of other stones. It's a wonderful stone to keep with you when you are sick. It can also alleviate chronic pain.

How Do I Use Clear Quartz for Healing?

So, you just found the perfect quartz. Maybe you were at a metaphysical shop and one just stood out to you. Now that you brought it home, you might be wondering how you can use your pretty, shiny new rock.

A great thing about a quartz crystal is that it does not need to be charged or cleansed. They can be used immediately once you bring one home. Here's how:

  • State your intentions. Hold your crystal in your left hand and close your eyes.
  • Ask yourself: Do you need healing? Do you want to attract more of something into your life? Maybe you want to be more spiritual and want to connect with a higher power (quartz is a very spiritual crystal).
  • Concentrate on what you want out of your crystal. This step won't take long, maybe a minute. Just be sure you clearly state what you want out of your quartz.

I discovered the powers of a quartz one evening when my tendinitis was acting up. I was lying on my couch and watching TV. Without realizing it, I reached for my quartz and started massaging my thumb and wrist with it. The pain went away almost immediately. Now I keep a small quartz with me at all times. I have one in my car, at my desk and in my purse.

Thank you for your comment, Maurice. I have been fascinated by crystals for years. I appreciate you sharing your experience and uses for them.

I love how you put the information together here especially your bit about pairing clear quartz with certain crystals to amplify a certain goal.

I've been using crystals for a long time and am quite sensitive to them. I use them for crystal healing, chakra and aura cleanses, crystal grids, distance healing, use them with my Crystal Oracle deck for guidance and giving guidance to others. In my experience all these years I have found that all crystals including clear quartz need clearing and charging to first help readjust their frequencies which I feel gets off when you use them often. I believe this notion that some crystals don't need to be cleansed came out of the experience of some that found that citrine, clear quartz, kyanite, selenite, and a few others don't need to be cleansed because they hold their frequencies steady much longer than some and they also transmute negative energy. In my personal experience that is true but if you will be using them on others make sure to cleanse them of energy attachments before reconnecting with your crystals. A simple way to keep track is to have a personal set of crystals that you use only for yourself and another set that you use on others. The ones you use on others, always cleanse and charge them to clear them of the other person's energetic baggage. You will be helping this crystal transmute and clear that residual energy much faster and be ready to use again.
