This lovely and lively quartz makes the soul dance and the heart sing. It creates a strong connection between the Crown and the Heart Chakras, strengthening our love of the Divine, but also encouraging love of life, and allows us to experience the sacredness of our very existence.
Harlequin Quartz contains a Christ-energy, encouraging us to be open-hearted, while remaining detached and self-contained. It clears and aligns the Chakras, lifts the spirits, and can help us to feel energised, warm and nurtured. Best for emotional and spiritual healing.
