Origin of Name & Mythology: Due to the fact that Elestial Quartz attunes most easily to the Angelic Realm.
Elestial Quartz is balancing and comforting. It is useful in removing blockages and fear, helps to overcome emotional burdens and opens us to make necessary changes in our lives, thereby being a transitional stone.
It is also purported to be useful in accessing and understanding past lives, and in some systems is believed that its presence in an area can heal the entire surrounding community.
