About Milky 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 Milky Quartz
The cloudiness of milky Quartz comes from microscopic inclusions of fluids encased in the crystal from the time the crystal first grew. Milky Quartz is often responsible for the cloudy phantoms inside otherwise clear rock quartz, amethyst, citrine, or smoky Quartz. Milky Quartz is also sometimes called White King Quartz.
Metaphysical Properties of Milky Quartz
Quartz is one of the most versatile crystals available to you. 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 healing crystal. 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!
Milky Quartz invites us to self-acceptance regardless of whatever "imperfections" we may feel we have. It reminds us that these add to the beauty of our whole being. It promotes meditation and a connection with our higher selves. It also aids in clearing our "channel" and communicating with our Spirit Guides! It also promotes peace, calmness, and a sense of balance.
