Clear Quartz Is by far my favorite crystal. When I was around 10 years old my mum owned a little shop in the village called Shop with a difference, The downstairs of the shop was like Aladdin’s cave crammed full of toys, clothes, picture frames and unusual gifts, my mum used to do tarot readings upstairs It really was a shop with a difference especially in the tiny village we lived in. My favorite part of the shop was in the corner. 3 shelves full of unusual crystals, rune stones and tarot cards I used to spend hours stood in this corner. One day my mum asked me if I was to choose one thing from the shop that I could keep what would it be. I thought and thought about this trying on the colourful hats and gloves picking up the teddy bears and then putting them back, I was allowed any one item,. I couldn't help but keep going back to my favorite shelf. the one item that I chose and wanted more than anything was a hexagon shaped clear quartz with a little nobble on the side. This was my favorite thing in the whole shop and I carried this stone about with me for years I even slept with it under my pillow. At least 10 Years later after turning the house upside down my clear quartz had just vanished. I read somewhere that once your crystal has done its work this can happen. And my crystal had been with me through my whole teenage life so I’m pretty sure it certainly had, had its work cut out and it did a wonderful job. After recently purchasing myself another clear quartz I have decided to do a little bit of research into the meaning and properties this beautiful crystal holds.
The clear quartz was the first substance to be described as crystal. The ancient Greeks named it crystalos meaning permanent ice because they thought it was ice frozen so solidly that it wouldn't melt, The clear quartz is by far the world’s most common crystal, constituting more than a tenth of the earth’s crust. Clear quartz has always been prized by healers as a means of accessing the spirit world.
Clear Quartz works on all areas of the mind and body, awakening, amplifying and transmitting energy and clarifying thought processes. It is an excellent stone for meditation, directing energies with more intensity. It connects to the higher self, removes negativity, blocked emotions and allows access to your spirit guides. Clear Quartz provides clarity in thinking and awareness and sharpness of perception It is also a powerful healing stone for any condition.

Your clear quartz should be cleansed before use to clear any negative charges it may have acquired.
Cleansing your clear quartz
Moonlight: Placing your stone outside or on a windowsill where they can soak up the moonlight for 1 night up to a week is very beneficial.
Burying: You can bury them in the Earth for 3 days to a week, either in your garden or in a flower pot. Remember to mark the spot if you bury them in your garden. You don't want to have to dig up half the garden to find your stones again.
Salt Water: When you do use salt water, do so cautiously and don't leave your crystals in it longer than absolutely necessary. I often put my clear quartz in a glass of salt water and leave on my windowsill overnight. Crystals can also be placed in dry, coarse sea salt for up to 24 hours This will keep them from picking up energies from their surroundings. If you are looking for a quick way to cleanse you can use cool filtered or tap Water simply run your stones under the cool water for a few minutes.
Breath: Exhale sharply over your crystal and imagine all the imbalances being blown away. You can repeat this several times.
