Large Faceted Quartz Crystal with Epidote Crystal Inclusions

This stunning example of Epidote Crystal inclusions in Quartz has come from the Antsirabe region in central Madagascar. The Quartz has superb clarity in which the Epidote crystals appear frozen in time. The Epidote inclusions are incredibly fragile on their own, but the encapsulating quartz has provided a wonderful clear, protective window.

Quartz is a hard mineral and there are many different varieties. The actual word quartz originates from the German word ‘quarz’. There are many colourful varieties of quartz, for example Rose Quartz, Amethyst or Citrine. However quartz in its purest state is colourless, and known as Clear Quartz or Rock Crystal. It was thought at one time that because the Quartz was so transparent and clear it must be derived from ice. Ice that had frozen so hard that it could never melt. It was discovered in the 1880’s that quartz has what are known as, ‘piezoelectric properties’. Quartz crystals still play an important role in our everyday life. We find quartz in everything from watches to electronics.

Metaphysically, Quartz is one of the most powerful healing crystals. Use Clear Quartz Crystals to stimulate the immune system and use also to increase energy. It is a crystal that can encourage emotional clarity, bringing enlightenment, peace and calm. When meditating Quartz crystals can assist concentration and help unlock hidden memories.
