All quartz crystals have 6 primary properties. They are able to structure, store, amplify, focus, transmit and transform energy, which includes matter, thought, emotion and information.
Metaphysical quartz formations possess additional properties, based on their geometry and other specific features.
Quartz naturally harmonises and energizes our gross and subtle bodies. Kirlian photography has shown that holding a small, double terminated quartz doubled the photographable portion of the aura.

Quartz is natural silicone, S102, without which, you would now be gazing sadly at a blank screen!
Quartz, referred to as the "ice of the gods" by many ancients, has always been recognized as having extraordinary physical and metaphysical properties.
Molecules of pure gold are bonded to the quartz by the natural electric charge of the crystal. By natures arrangement, this produces a celestial shade of blue. This cannot be scraped off, and permeates the crystal.
These beautiful crystals combine the considerable qualities of gold and quartz, while allowing greater direction to be given to the energy of the gold via the ability of quartz to be programmed. See also - included quartz.
Gold has been called the master healer , symbolizing purity of heart, the perfection of alchemical transformation. Purifying at all levels, the beneficial effects of gold are considerable. Thought forms are enhanced and the heart chakra is balanced and soothed.
"Gold can also help to assuage the overburden of responsibility, to combat feelings of depression and inferiority, to allow one to both understand and dispense with self-reproach and to calm excitation and anger."
Barnacle crystals are recognized as crystals partially covered by many smaller crystals. They are essentially a type of mini-cluster and share the properties of clusters.
These crystals can be used to provide insight into issues of trust and dependence, especially in relation to the principle of family. Improves physical and intellectual fertility.
Bridge crystals are recognized as a smaller crystal which is part in, and part out of a larger quartz crystal. Sometimes referred to as a "penetration bridge."
“Bridge crystals facilitate bridging between the inner and outer worlds, between the self and others residing on this planet, and between the self and other worlds... and are quite beneficial when one is working with the aspects of spirituality and with the advanced metaphysical areas, and attempting to share this knowledge with others.”
It facilitates passing over what was previously impassable. The essential geometry of the crystal is penetrated, providing access to inner worlds and issues previously inaccessible. Appreciated by shamans and those interested in "journeying".
Useful for improving teaching and communication in general.
Kacha Stones is the proud miner of Welsh and Irish Celtic quartz. These relatively rare crystals are ethically hand mined in the hills of Wales and shores of SW Ireland, taking great care to leave the environment completely undisturbed. After carefully hand cleaning each one, they are energised in a natural woodland spring for a complete lunar cycle, then stored on the earth to maintain their powerful and distinct mood.

The main, front face is large and seven sided. Its opposite, rear face is a smaller triangle.
Seven indicates wisdom and mysticism. Three indicates understanding what appeared irreconcilable, by the introduction of another factor/deeper vision. This vision "surfaces" as the triangle is the manifestation of a surface from a line in geometric progression.
"The channelling crystal provides for a means of channeling and expressing truth and wisdom from both the inner realms of perfection and other worlds. It is symbolic of the student, the professor, the mystic and the seeker of wisdom. The channelling crystals can be used to access the wisdom from "within and without". They can be used to bring forth light and love from the most truthful and knowledgeable portions of the self. Sometimes there can be an encounter with other entities from whom one can learn; always check the information, given by the entity, with the personal inner knowing."
This crystal facilitates a connection between both our conscious mind and innate wisdom, as well as other planes of existence. The benefits of such an opportunity would be hard to exaggerate. Very potent, easy to work with and relatively common crystals. Extremely useful for those who have a desire to develop their psychic faculties.
Crystals clustered on a common matrix.
Encourages a sense of community, creating harmony and removing negativity from its environment, whether that is on a body or in a room. Also useful in cleansing and activating quartz and other minerals. Clusters sometimes contain many metaphysical configurations, all working together harmoniously.
“Quartz clusters serve to bring the “group” energy of the associated crystal to the surrounding environment, enhancing harmony and peace in groups, in the family, and in other social and/or business environments.”
Molecules of pure cobalt are bonded to the quartz by the natural electric charge of the crystal, producing brilliant hues of royal blue, violet and gold. Cannot be scraped off.
These incredibly beautiful crystals combine the qualities of cobalt and quartz, while allowing greater direction to be given to the energy of the cobalt via the ability of quartz to be programmed.
An excellent stone for creativity, both removing blockages to creativity and enhancing creative powers. It is said to lift the emotions and instil a sense of wonder in the creation we are surrounded by, but so easily fail to appreciate. An intensely visual stone, promoting clairvoyance and all forms of "seeing". Stimulates the third eye.
This curved quartz formation is recognised as either curvature of the whole crystal, as in the picture, or curvature of the individual sides in an apparently straight crystal. It is said to be caused by larger than normal amounts of energy being channelled by these crystals during their growth.
"In the Curved Quartz Crystal curvature is produced during the developmental stages of growth and is a rather rare occurrence. The structure of the curved crystal provides for a continuous (when in ones energy field) alignment of the physical meridians and the nervous system, and the alignment of the physical, emotional, mental, etheric, astral, etc., bodies, singularly and with one another.”
These stones smooth out any imbalances in the energy flow of the meridians and subtle bodies, enabling the body to re-establish a healthier, more balanced system. Its gentle but extremely powerful energy brings balance to all subtle bodies, singularly and with one another. This benefit extends to the meridians and nervous system. Helps us see beyond convention and break it appropriately. An uncommon and powerful healing tool.
Instead of growing from a matrix, double terminated stones grew from a central "seed", producing two points in opposite directions. Remarkable on its own, but these crystals are not only capable of structuring, storing, transmitting and amplifying diverse energies, the properties of quartz in general, but of producing their own energy, internally. This perfect, natural energy has an overwhelmingly positive effect on health.
"[Double Terminated] crystals can assist in providing one protection from mental and physical harm. Carrying a double terminated crystal can enable one to maintain ones energy shield."
Worn or carried the aura is intensified, providing subtle and physical protection. Ayurveda, the extremely sophisticated medical knowledge of ancient India, understands the aura to be the first wave of the immune system. The benefits of strengthening the aura are more tangible than most would imagine.
Clusters of double terminated crystals with no matrix. These combine all the properties of clusters and double terminated crystals. A beautiful, powerful, relatively rare and extremely useful healing formation.
Some exceptional crystals possess many metaphysical formations. On the right for example is a Rutilated Manifestation Silver Phantom Channelling Rainbow Crystal.
Not only are the properties of each formation present, but also the synergistic effects of their combination.

Imagine many of the above formations combined in a single crystal. We have most formations in some combination and excellent examples of how certain combinations produce especially energetic crystals for healing and energy work.
