Origin of Name & Mythology: From Zephyr, the Greek god of the west wind, which was considered the gentlest wind, especially if compared to the colder north wind, Boreas. The warm west wind brought the spring season. Even today the name of the god means a warm and light breeze.
In addition to the general qualities of quartz, Zephyr Quartz flits and spirals through the body like a playful breeze, clearing stagnation and strengthening life force. It improves concentration and mental clarity, strengthens the energy field, and boosts self-confidence and general motivation.
Used with intention, it helps us see our soul’s journey and understand our life’s purpose.
