Natural History
Quartz is a clear or white form of silicone dioxide found throughout the world. Indeed it is the second most common mineral found in the Earth’s continental crust, with feldspar taking first place. Quartz is often found embedded in sedimentary rocks, including sandstone and shale and as part of igneous rocks, like granite.
History and Folklore
Pliny the Elder believed quartz to be ice, permanently frozen after very long exposure to freezing temperatures.
Also called the Witch’s mirror and the Star Stone.
Hercules dropped the Crystal of Truth from Mount Olympus shattering it into all the pieces we find today. Since clear crystals come from the Crystal of Truth, it is said that anyone using a clear crystal while divining can never lie.
In parts of Asia, crystal is thought to be pure dragon essence.

May have been used during the Eleusinian mysteries to produce sacred fire.
Clear quartz crystal absorbs energy from the Sun and the life force in the trees and plant life. It also draws down Divine light. It stores all this energy to be released as needed. This energy is released as white light that can be absorbed by any chakra. It also raises the vibrational level of its surroundings.
Healing and Magickal Uses
Body: Boosts the immune system. Clears negative debris causing disease from the aura. Relieves pain and fevers. Relieves vertigo. Aids healing and tissue regeneration.
Mind: Fuels memory. Aids concentration. Gives creative insight. Balances emotions.
Magick: Facilitates clairvoyance and divinatory abilities. Aids in meditation. Induces prophetic dreams. Protects against psychic attack. Receives, amplifies, and transmits energy. Purifies the aura and the soul.
Care and Cleansing
Cleanse frequently by smudging or in sunlight, or saltwater. If you wish to use a singing bowl, use the bowl near it. Do not put the stone in the bowl as the vibrations against the bowl may damage the points. Recharge under a plant under either the sun or the moon.

Hey there! Just wanted to ask if you guys had any spells / meditations etc. to better the self, ie. letting go of anger and negativity to open up to being a better, more patient person. Or maybe just good combinations of colours, herbs or scents that would help so I can craft my own spell if that's easier. Thanks!
