Clear quartz is a crystal that everyone is pretty much a fan of and is a must-have in the crystal world. Very few people speak about what it does. Well, it balances your energy or the energy in the room. It works best with your 3rd eye and your crown chakra by clearing out all the negative energy and balancing and harmonizing your chakra and energies.
How To Use Clear Quartz
Much like the other crystals you can wear the crystals can have the most powerful effect on your own energy. Wearing clear quartz as a necklace, close to the head and heart chakra for clarity.
Placing it in your home like your office or where ever you do any deep thinking can help clarify your thinking.
How To Cleanse Clear Quartz
Bathing your Quartz in the moonlight and aligning them with the lunar cycles can help charge the crystal with whatever energy the moon is holding that night.
Quartz is also water safe so you can run it through a river to cleanse or under lukewarm water from your faucet. Remember you don’t have to be fancy just pure of heart and keep your intent clear.
Cool Tip – if you’re ever curious if your quartz is real or not if it’s a real quartz it will magnify or distort writing depending on the shape. Try reading through the crystal and if it’s distorted it will be real. You can also try to scratch glass with the crystal and it’s properly real.
