Why I Love Quartz

I love crystals and stones. I enjoy exploring my local New Age shop for beautiful pieces that radiate good energy and collecting them on my altar or making them into jewelry. I believe in the energy and properties that stones hold. One of my favourites by far is quartz.

It's a simple crystal that's not hard to find or particularly expensive. It's popular to be seen on jewelry right now and every witch, pagan, or other new age-inclined person has at least one but probably more. So why do I love it so much?
  • It's easy to find, either in nature or in shop or online. Quartz is not a rare stone so it's easy to get whenever you need it. There are lots of different types of quartz and chances are you can go in your backyard and manage to find a piece. I own a bunch of found quartz that I collected from my yard, driveways, the woods, and the beach. My local New Age shop sells Tibetan quartz points for 50 cents each! That's a pretty great deal and they usually have a huge tray of them. Etsy is also a great place to search for it if there's nowhere near you that sells what you're looking for.
  • They're versatile. Quartz is probably the most useful stone to have for magickal purposes. It works as an amplifier for other stones or magickal ingredients, giving them a power-boost. It can also help amp up your own personal energy. So if you're a mostly positive person and you want to stay that way, carrying a quartz crystal around will definitely help. It also works as a sponge. Weird terminology for a stone, I know, but it's true! You can imbue quartz with energy energy you want and it will hold it. very handy if you're doing a spell that needs a stone you don't have. 
  • It looks great as jewelry. I see tons of quartz jewelry on Etsy (and sell some of it myself!) and am blown away by some of the beautiful stuff people make! Pendants, earrings, rings, bracelets, everything under the sun! Tangerine quartz looks great for sunny jewelry. But regular clear quartz looks great with everything because you don't have to worry about colours clashing!

Best stone ever, right? I have a bunch of other favourits, but quartz is something I like to collect and keep in abundance just because of how useful and easily attainable it is.
