What you need to know about the properties of quartz crystals
The quartz crystals formed after a slow process of thousands of years in the interior of the earth, due to the high temperatures and enormous pressures. From a physical point, quartz is composed of a silicon atom and two of oxygen, which when combined, form silicon dioxide. The solid form of quartz is a consequence of the pressure and heat under the earth’s surface. When the quartz contains impurities the different types of quartz are formed. And according to their impurity has one or another energetic property and different color.
The Chinese and the Hindu cultures have used it for thousands of years and call quartz “living stone” because they feel its energetic movements and when placing it in the hand, its vibrations change in harmony with the person who has it; This means that there is a transfer of energy between the crystal and man. The crystals have the capacity to receive, store and release energies.
Each stone, quartz, metal, crystal or gem has some property or quality that distinguishes them and with that energy of that quality or property can help us in our daily life.

The properties of quartz
