Spirit Quartz or Cactus Quartz: Magical and Healing Effect, Zodiac signs, Chakras, Taking Care, Identifying Fake

Spirit Quartz was only recently introduced to the market as a mineral. It was called Spirit Quartz because the pale, dull color of the stone resembled the locally widely used menthol-containing detergent called “Spirit.”

However, even if it happens to be called by such a name, it seems that local tribal shamans have used this stone for group meditation and healing for a long time, and it has “spiritual” suggestion as described later. .. In that sense, it can be said that the original nature of the stone called an appropriate name.

The other names for Spirit Quartz are ‘Cactus Quartz’, ‘Fairy Quartz’ and ‘Porcupine Quartz’.

Spirit Quartz means “spirit crystal”.

Its shape is unique, and innumerable crystals reminiscent of fine protrusions grow on the surface of one thick pillar. Only the tip of the main pillar is unique in that fine crystals remain without growing.

Because of this appearance, it is also called cactus quartz (cactus crystal).

Spirit Quartz means spirit crystal, but it may be more appropriate to call it a choir crystal rather than a spirit. This is because it is a stone in which the voices of countless crystals are in harmony and a large chorus is played.

Although the appearance of this stone has changed, the color is often pale and dull, and it is by no means a flashy stone. However, if you hold it in your hand and move it a little, you can see how wonderful this stone is. 

The fine protrusions that grow densely on the surface shine brilliantly in the light just by moving the stone slightly. The light is really light, and the expression “glittering” is perfect. When you turn the stone around, the sparkle of light seems to swirl lightly.

Each light shines like a high-pitched singing voice, and countless singing voices overlap to form a chord, as if listening to the chorus of the Great Choir. Perhaps the harmony of the high-frequency waves emitted from the myriad protrusions gives this image.

 ”Harmony = Harmony”
 This is the central suggestion of Spirit Quartz.

How does Spirit Quartz Look:

Spirit Quartz is a variety of amethyst, and innumerable fine crystals reminiscent of thorns grow on the outer shell of one crystal column.

In most cases, it wears a purple amethyst color, but some of them have a white or citrine color, and some of them have a tangerine (reddish brown) color due to the influence of iron oxide.

The production area is South Africa. Other countries produce similar types of amethyst, but they are often referred to as cactus quartz (cactus quartz), or amethyst cactus, and when referred to as spirit quartz, they may refer to South Africa. It seems that there are many.

* There are also colorful and dark stones called aura spirit quartz, but these are artificially vapor-deposited pigments and are completely different.

Healing effects of Spirit Quartz:

In the field of stone healing, it is used to restore the balance of mind and body that tends to fall apart.
It means integrating and harmonizing the human body, emotional body, mental body, and spiritual body. In other words, it can be said to evolve an individual’s daily consciousness so that it overlaps with that person’s higher self consciousness.

In addition, it is said that it is useful for filling the aura level with energy because it emits energy like a shower from each crystal growing on the surface. From this point of view, Spirit Quartz can be said to be a stone that tunes energy.

Magical effects of Spirit Quartz:

 As mentioned earlier, it was originally used by local tribesmen during group meditation and healing. That is probably because of the implication of “harmony” that this stone has.

Spirit Quartz has a strong implication that it brings together members who tend to fall apart and enhances cohesion and cooperation. Therefore, placing it in a place where work or group activities are carried out has the implication of increasing cohesion. It means that the consciousness of “let’s do our best together” grows.

It is said that if someone who is self-centered and tends to collide with others has it, he will set the ego aside and increase cooperation and group consciousness. Also, shy and poorly sociable people are said to help open their hearts and become sociable.

Placing it at home will help create a harmonious energy field. It is also said to help insight into the problems and tensions that lie between family members, as well as between lovers and friends.

How to Cleanse Spirit Quartz:

It is said that there is basically no need for purification, but we recommend that you clean it at the beginning of purchase. Smugging with white sage, moonlight bath, purification with crystal tuner, etc. are good. Avoid prolonged sunbathing as it may fade.
