Here we have an excellent example of a natural quartz point mined from Brazil, one of the largest exporters of quartz. One look at the photos of this specimen and you will be hooked. Sharp, untouched quartz points are some of the most simple, yet beautiful pieces we have to offer. The clarity and striation of this specimen are out of this world.
Quartz is the second most abundant mineral on Earth accounting for around 12% of the Earth's crust. Its name is derived from the German word "quarz" meaning hard. Quartz can form in trigonal or hexagonal crystal systems depending on the temperature during formation. Crystallized quartz ideally forms a six-sided crystal terminating with six-sided pyramids. The majority of quartz forms from molten magma. The largest quartz crystal ever found was located near Itapore, Goiaz, Brazil. It measured over 23 feet long and weighed 88,000 pounds.
Clear Quartz is the master healer of all minerals. Quartz is used to program and amplify the intentions and energies you set forth. It is also paired with other minerals to magnify their properties.
