Quartz is the most common mineral on the planet. While the most common, it certainly is not something to overlook when it comes to healing and collecting. It is one of the most varied minerals that we know. Quartz comes in many colors and is often described by the color it contains: IE: Rose Quartz is pink, Amethyst is Purple and Green Quartz comes from one of several minerals. Quartz can contain inner crystals (Manifestation Quartz ) or water (En-hydro Quartz). Quartz is very useful in healing as it transmits energy very well and this is why it is used in electronics. Quartz also has memory and used in computer chips for this purpose.
There are many different varieties of quartz, several of which are semi-precious gemstones. Since antiquity, varieties of quartz have been the most commonly used minerals in the making of jewelry and hard stone carvings especially in Eurasia.
