Additional Information

A type of quartz crystal, always double terminated and of dazzling clarity, often full of rainbows. It has similar properties to clear quartz. In addition, it stimulates psychic gifts, and because of the pure light it brings in, it is used to clear the Chakras, and particularly aligns with the Upper Crown Chakra. It is considered an “attunement” stone as it is a powerful aid in attuning to another person, one’s environment, or the highest spiritual levels, as well as helping us to gain past-life information. Also a good aid in treating and eliminating electromagnetic stress.
