The Science of Fire Quartz
Quartz includes a very large family of gems. In fact, it is the most common mineral on Earth! For this reason it has been called “the Grandfather of all Gems.” Although this article is about the Clear variety, quartz also includes Amethyst, Citrine, Rose, Smoky, Snow, Agate, Chalcedony, Aventurine, and many, many more. Quartz is used in watches and radios because it can produce electromagnetic energy when under physical pressure (piezoelectricity). Fire Quartz specifically is also known as Hematoid Quartz. The red “flames” within the Clear Quartz are streaks of Hematite. Hematite is actually a red stone, but it is so deep that it looks black to the eye.
Historical Significance of Fire Quartz
Quartz is said to be named after the Slavic word for ‘hard’, but also the Greek word for ‘ice’. Clear Quartz is also known as Rock Crystal. Quartz has been revered for ages. Crystal balls were used for scrying and divination. Japanese cultures considered Quartz a symbol for purity. Native American cultures believed that Quartz housed sentient spirits and would provide them with offerings.
Metaphysical Attributes of Fire Quartz
Quartz is well known for being able to amplify, store, and direct the flow of energy. The amplification aspect is extremely useful. It can amplify our intentions, so using Clear Quartz during intention setting rituals, moon phase ceremonies, and while creating vision boards will give extra power for those intentions to grow and manifest. Clear Quartz spiritual properties can be combined with other gemstones to amplify their effects. If you really need “extra” of what a crystal provides, pair it with Quartz for an additional boost.
Quartz is an amazing cleanser for our energy, aura, chakras, and physical body. It helps to raise our personal vibration and dissolve blockages that are creating imbalances. This stone inherently knows what we need to be Whole and works to correct the source of illness. The amplification property works especially well for healers as it can boost the effective of the treatment. I use Clear Quartz whenever I am working with Reiki clients to enhance the power of the Reiki energy.
Clear Quartz is a gemstone that amplifies our energy, intentions, and intuitive abilities. Combined with the streaks of Hematite that creates the flame effect, this stone helps us remain clear and focused while we perform meditation and energy work. It helps create strong, specific intentions and amplifies our abilities to manifest them into reality. This crystal helps fan the flames of our motivation and determination to help us achieve our dreams!
Physical Healing Benefits of Fire Quartz
Clear Quartz is said to help with the healing process in general, so if you are ill, or recovering from an injury or surgery, carrying Quartz with you will enhance the healing process.
Fire Quartz Mantra Practice
Sit in seated meditation, holding the Fire Quartz in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine a brilliant light shining out from your Crown Chakra, like gentle flickering flames. You appear as a strong candle lighting the way. Repeat these words. “I am Clear. I am Open. I am ready to Receive and Manifest my Dreams.” Alternately, hold a Clear Quartz mala and chant this mantra 108 times.
