In the metaphysical world, Spirit Quartz is a crystal of harmony and alignment. It takes all the crystal energies of the main stone and amplifies them over and over again in all the tiny points, each reflecting light back and forth to one another.

Trivia time! How does “Spirit Quartz” get its name? Because magic? Well, sure, that’s lovely, but it’s actually from the alcohol spirits the specimens are cleaned with, after having been dug from the earth. The wee spiky bits are typically covered in cloudy unattractive limonite deposits, and after about 3 weeks in a bath of hooch, they come out all pretty like this!
