Quartz itself is a very common variety of crystal (in fact, it’s the most common crystal), but there’s nothing ordinary about Spirit Quartz. Spirit Quartz is a delicate blend of Amethyst, Citrine, Smoky Quartz, and White Quartz, and it comes in a variety of different gorgeous colors. My particular specimen of Spirit Quartz is of the White Quartz variety, and has a beautiful, milky, ethereal pearl glow. Like many other white crystals, white Spirit Quartz is a symbol of peace, feminine energy, cleanliness, and unity. It is also sometimes called Fairy Quartz, which is also a very fitting name for the stone.
The other five types of Spirit Quartz are Amethyst Spirit Quartz, Citrine Spirit Quartz, Smoky Spirit Quartz, Aqua Aura Spirit Quartz, and Flame Aura Spirit Quartz. In theme with the color associations, Amethyst Spirit Quartz is ideal for channeling the higher chakras, such as the Third Eye and Crown chakras. Citrine Spirit Quartz, which takes on a pale gold hue, is ideal for utilizing self-worth and empowerment. Smoky Spirit Quartz is a gray-brown variety, perfect for releasing deeply held emotions and letting go of trauma. And lastly, Aura Aura and Flame Aura help are used to channel water and fire energies, respectively.
Although all of these varieties are beautiful and important, I’m going to be focusing primarily on the White (Fairy) Spirit Quartz. Spirit Quartz is well-known for bringing harmony and bonding to families and groups of people. It stimulates healing and peace in households where tension and pain may be high, although no crystal should ever be used in place of what actual therapy or authority figures can offer. For all milder purposes, however, Spirit Quartz can be excellent for relieving tensions and rivalries. In regards to physical healing properties, Spirit Quartz of all varieties is believed to aid in allergic reactions, scars, cysts, and growths. Because the feminine energy of Spirit Quartz is so strong, it is also believed to help with infertility and difficult pregnancies.
My favorite thing about White Spirit Quartz in particular is that it can be used to energize all the chakras equally. It is perfect for meditation and promotes a peaceful state of mind, as the gentle energy of the stone cleanses your mind and fills you with ethereal joy. Spirit Quartz is also associated with a variety of different guardian angels and spiritual beings, if that’s something you believe in. I’ll leave a link below detailing the chart and how they correlate with the different varieties of quartz.
Although it’s not as common as “regular” quartz, such as clear quartz or plain amethyst, quartz can still be found readily online and in crystal shops. You’ll find lots of different varieties of Spirit Quartz on Etsy in particular, so feel free to pop over there if you’re interested in buying some!
