About Clear Quartz

Most quartz forms in either igneous rocks or environments with geothermal waters. In igneous rocks, quartz forms as magma cools. Like water turning into ice, silicon dioxide will crystallize as it cools. Slow cooling generally allows the crystals to grow larger.

Quartz can also grow from silica-rich water. Silicon dioxide dissolves in water, like sugar in tea, but only at high temperatures and pressure. Then, as the temperature or pressure drops, the solution becomes saturated, and quartz crystals form.

About Crackle Quartz

The crystal is heated to a high temperature to create crackle quartz and immediately dunked in cold water. The sudden cooling causes the crystal to crack inside. If dye is added to the quenching water, it will enter any surface-reaching fractures and flow, by capillary action, deep into the Quartz. The deep penetration of dye produces rich color in the Quartz.

Because crackle quartz is highly fractured, it is more fragile than other types of Quartz. It is one of the least durable tumbled stones. Durability problems are why you seldom see crackle quartz as cabochons.

Please note: Dyed crystal colors will vary in shades. The picture shows a sample selection - the crystal you receive may be a different shade or shape, but we will try to stay within the same shade "family" as your selection.

Metaphysical Properties of Crackle Quartz

Quartz is one of the most versatile crystals available to us. Not only is it the most common, but also it pairs amazingly well with any other crystal. It works primarily in the crown chakra when you work with it individually, helping to clear the communication channel between us and our higher selves. It helps with Lucid Dreaming and may even aid in dream recall (pair it with Sodalite for better dream recall). It is also a top-notch healing crystal; some would say it is the best. Clear Quartz should always be the first crystal in your collection as it will work well with any other crystal, augmenting and strengthening its abilities! It is also a big energy-absorbing crystal, so you must cleanse it often!

Crackle Quartz, in particular, is excellent for working with Soul Retrieval and bridging different parts of you back together. It is a stone of reconstruction; whether you are reconstructing parts of your life or aspects of yourself, this can be a powerful ally! For dyed crystals, their colors can activate different chakras: Purple/Blue will activate the Throat and Third Eye. Reds, yellows, and browns will activate the lower chakras, and greens and teals will activate the Heart and Throat Chakra. Clear will activate the upper chakras.
