Clear quartz crystal (also known as rock crystal) is a stone for purification.
Clear quartz helps to develop determination and structure in your life and helps focus your ideas and inspirations. It acts as an amplifier for both positive thoughts and energy and can therefore be good to have around when positive action and focus is needed. It can be held or worn to bring more power to situations and to promote clarity of thought. Quartz is a stone of harmony and will tend to produce a more balanced state in you regardless of where you are. It is often thought of as the stone of the stars as it helps to bring you in line with a higher purpose, both in a personal and a more universal way. It can also aid in bringing about altered states of consciousness and stimulate psychic abilities. It has been used by many traditions such as Celts, Native American, Egyptian African, Mayan and Aboriginal in the use of healing, communicating with spirits and attaining an enlightened state.
Clear quartz helps to dispel negative energy you may have absorbed from other people. If you tend to put yourself down, quartz may help you fight that feeling. It is good to hold or have around whenever you feel foggy, uncertain or would like to see your way more clearly. It is one of the most frequently used crystals because of its wide-ranging benefits.
Incidentally, it also tends to combat radiation and static so can be good to have near a computer monitor.
