Additional Information

Also know as Himalayan Ice Quartz, Nirvana Quartz was first found in 2006 in the retreating glaciers in the Himalayan Mountains, India. This stunning rosy pink quartz was hidden for thousands of years beneath the ice, and is often very hard to obtain.

Nirvana Quartz is an excellent tool for meditation, allowing you to access deep peace and inner silence. It can also assist in overcoming feelings of victimisation and unworthiness.
