Ordinary yet extraordinary, colorful and clear, Quartz crystals are the most common and abundant in the world, comprising the largest and most diverse family in the mineral kingdom. “From ancient times to the present day, quartz crystals have been a source of Light to mankind. Highly valued by spiritual leaders and healers as well as scientists, the unique attributes of quartz have played a key role in mankind’ evolutionary development.”

Mythology: Almost every ancient culture has revered and valued Quartz. The ancient Greeks believed Quartz was actually water from the heavens that was frozen into eternal ice by the gods. The word ‘crystal’ derives from the Greek word “krystallos” meaning ‘ice’. In Australian Aboriginal mythology, Quartz is the most common substance identified with their mystical substance called maban. Maban is said to be the material from which wise men obtain their magical powers. The Aborigines used the crystals to invoke rain, as did some Native American tribes. A ‘cure all’ therapy practised by the ancient Celts was to place nine small Quartz crystals in water, bring to the boil and allow to cool. The enhanced water was to be drunk over nine consecutive days.
