Tangerine Quartz is quartz crystal with iron phantoms, inclusions or encrustations. It is currently being mined in Brazil, however some specimens have also been found in Madagascar. Currently these specimens are unpolished and greatly unappreciated since they have only recently surfaced.
Tangerine Quartz balances the heart, both physically and emotionally. When used in meditation of the Heart Chakra, or worn at the Heart Chakra, it will give a sense of relief and expansiveness from the limitations of fear and lack. When placing Tangerine Quartz over the heart, it gives one a sense of warmth and welcome. When shared with another person, or animal, it can clear the relationship of limitations and bring a more enlightened perspective to stagnant conditions.
Because of its orange color range, it is also successful in stimulating the second chakra for greater clarity of emotions and increased sexuality. Tangerine Quartz can help align the inner and outer worlds, or the physical body with the auric bodies, helping to ground the Higher Self into the Third and Fourth Dimensions.
