Probably one of the most common and well known of crystals, the quartz is such a useful, good all-round stone. This stone is a ‘jack of all trades’ and actually really is a master of all of them too. Quartz crystal is made from silicon dioxide. They sometimes have other minerals in the, creating shadows or shapes and making them rutilated. Double ended clear quartz and quartz points are often used as ‘master healers’ being able to channel illness and pain out from the body. It is a very powerful stone and can also be used to cleanse other crystals. The name ‘quartz’ is from the Greek word ‘krustallos’ which translates as ‘ice’. It was believed that the Gods created it and people believed it to be ice.

For me, rose quartz is a very gentle, calm energy and most definitely one filled with love. It really is a stone of the heart and all matters attached to it. But don’t be fooled, just because the energy is gentle it does pack a powerful punch of magic. The base of the stone is quartz, but the colour is created by impurities such as titanium, manganese and iron.

The base of this stone is obviously quartz which is silicone dioxide, but the dark smoky colour comes from free silicone deposits within the stone. Apparently in 12th Century China the first sunglasses were made, using pieces of smoky quartz as the lenses, very clever.

You will need:
A crystal to represent fire
A crystal to represent water
A crystal to represent air
A crystal to represent earth
A dish of water
My suggestion: I used a carnelian for fire, a blue lace agate for water, a brown jasper for air and a moss agate for earth.
Place the bowl of water in front of you.
Pick up the earth stone and ask that the element of earth bring stability and steadfastness for protection, pop the crystal in the bowl of water.
Pick up the air stone and ask that the element of air blow away all the negative energy. Pop the crystal in the bowl of water.
Pick up the fire stone and ask that the element of fire bring energy for protection. Pop the crystal in the bowl of water.
Pick up the water stone and ask the element of water to wash away gossip, lies and unkind words aimed towards you. Pop the crystal in the bowl of water.
Then take the clear quartz stone in both hands and see it as a shield around you. Pop the quartz into the bowl of water and visualise it drawing up all the positive energy and strength from the four element crystals. When you feel it is ready take the stones out and tip the water on to the earth.
Dry and cleanse the coloured stones and keep for future use. Dry the quartz and carry it with you for protection.
