Coming from the oldest and highest mountains in our world, Himalayan Quartz Crystal is unusually powerful and holds a clear, unobstructed connection to Higher Guidance. Due to the extreme altitude and its inaccessibility of the mines these crystals are always mined by hand with great care and respect. They are then brought back down small trails in back packs and on trek animals.
The most sought after of the Himalayan Quartz are those from Mt. Meru (Shark Fin Mountain). Mt. Meru is considered the center of the Universe. Meru Mountain is the connector between Heaven and Earth. It is the physical, metaphysical and spiritual center of the universe as all the planets along with the sun revolve around this mountain. According to Hindu mythology, many deities and the Brahma – Shiva, Krishna and Vishnu reside here. It is known as the ‘Sumeru Parvat’ (Parvat = Mountain) in Hindi. This mountain also holds reverence in Buddhism, it is the mystical representation of the sacred stupa or five-tiered mountain of light. It has great significance in the early scriptures of the world. This sacred mountain is said to connect to the North Pole.
While Himalayan Quartz can be programmed, each piece is more strongly a teacher than a quartz crystal to be programmed. They will activate the Sixth Chakra and enhance psychic intuition and vision for knowledge, healing and inner wisdom. These crystals can be used on all chakras. Manihar Quartz is found in the northern corner of India near the Tibetan plateau. The higher the mountain range, the fewer impurities in the feed solution going into the caves, the clearer the quartz.
Himalayan Quartz is some of the densest quartz in the Quartz Family due to its intense growing conditions. These crystals are also some of the clearest, purest quartz available. This focused purity supports clear thought and personal purpose for highest good and evolution. Since Quartz is specifically known to amplify its environment and add energy and resonance to other stones these Himalayan’s constantly broadcast higher frequency energy from Earth’s core into the electromagnetic aura and environment. Anywhere you place (or use) a Himalayan Quartz piece, will have a sense of peacefulness and yet more intense psychic energy, clearing, and healing.
Himalayan Quartz shows us that we can stay calm under extreme conditions and extreme pressure and that serenity is possible through the storms of life. The single crystals are powerful meditation tools and the clusters are a good focal source for group meditations. They will keep the individual, or the group, uplifted, positive shielded from negative energy. Program your crystal and crystal clusters for protection and it will be done.
As well as being optically clear, many of these crystals grow with inclusions and phantoms of green chlorite; these can be used for healing and wellness. Some show tiny Anatase or Hematite crystals inside or on the sides or faces of the crystal points. The pinkish Himalayan Quartz, called Samadhi Quartz, has trace amounts of aluminum or phosphate. (NOTE: Pink Himalayan Quartz is not Rose Quartz which is a SiO2 with Manganese.) Samadhi Quartz brings a oneness with the universe and mindfulness to the user and the environment. It holds the essence of love for humanity and the planet. These minerals are from the Kullu Valley of Himachal Pradesh, India, known as the ‘End of the Habitable World’ or the ‘Valley of the Gods’.
Many of these crystals will show unusual etching on their faces. These are called Evolight Quartz. Discovered in 2016, these crystals have phenomenal etching across the termination faces. These are slightly different from Record Keeper crystals with triangulated etchings on them. Evolight Quartz has a strong focus on the evolvement of human kind to co-exist in peace and harmony with each other, nature, and all sentient beings on earth. The peoples of this area believe that the crystals are the “Eyes of God’ that have the yang energies of these majestic mountains within them.
