Milky Quartz crystals with tiny inclusions resembling 5-pointed stars. The Star is symbolic of hope, and to "reach for the stars" is to follow your hopes, dreams, and ambitions to their greatest height. This unusual crystal definitely does just that. It lifts the spirits, engenders hope, and encourages drive and ambition. It strengthens the Solar Plexus and makes the Heart feel lighter, as well as aligning the other Chakras. In meditation, it is as though tiny bursts of light (or fireworks) are going off all around and through the body, creating inner movement and realignment, not focused, but still very pleasant.
Starburst Quartz aids spiritual and psychic development, and can also be used to access the energy of the Wise Woman or Crone.
