From a metaphysical perspective, quartz crystals are considered to be one of the most powerful of the healing stones. Besides assisting with physical, mental, and emotional issues, they are also believed to help unblock, align, and balance the seven chakras (energy centers in the body).
Of all quartz crystals, double-terminated Alaska Crystal Diamonds may well be the most powerful when it comes to the healing process. In addition, they are reputed to increase psychic abilities, clairvoyance and telepathy, and to increase empathy. These sparkling products of nature are formed from water and thus hold the attributes of the water element; these are the feminine qualities of intuition, psychic ability, and the knowledge and wisdom of the mystical. They also contain the metaphysical properties of the other three elements—earth, air, and fire—with the greatest propensity toward air and fire.
Astrologically, they have a strong relationship with the sun and moon, and resonate with the signs of Libra, Aries, and Sagittarius. This makes them primarily masculine and action oriented, giving them the ability to help motivate action, induce inspiration, and provide greater focus to one’s thoughts.
When I first visited the mining area I immediately felt a euphoria stream through my entire body. And while camped on top of the crystals for many weeks at a time, I experienced an increased awareness, elevated consciousness, increased energy, a decrease in pain, more dramatic dreams, and an expanded psychic ability. Each of these experiences have continued and even amplified over the months and years as I always have at least one of the stones with me at all times.
