Quartz Beads

The universal healing stone that has been used as a substitute for more expensive gemstones throughout time. 12% of the earth's crust is composed of this 'rock crystal'. Because quartz is harder than glass, it was commonly used to make crystal balls in the middle Ages. There are two forms of quartz; Macrocrystalline quartz (quartz that is recognizable with the naked eye) and Microcrystalline or Cryptocrystalline quartz (too small a crystal to be seen without high magnification, such as chalcedony). Both kinds are found in Brazil, Madagascar, Namibia, both the French and Swiss Alps and the U.S.

Cherry Quartz - is usually created with clear glass with thin strips of pink. There can also be sparkly needles of pink throughout.

Crystal Quartz - is the most common of all quartzes. It is the best all purpose crystal that is said to cleanse the mind and body. It enhances the property of all other gemstones and is used to remove toxins and lessen negative thoughts.

Rose Quartz - is one of the most desirable quartzes. It was a popular gemstone for making seals in Rome and is commonly called the “love stone” as it is used to open the heart chakra to all forms of love. It is said to bring forgiveness, compassion, and tolerance. It also benefits the heart; alleviate headaches, depression, and earaches. It is found in Brazil, India, Germany and the U.S.

Sky Quartz - is a glass bead that can range from cornflower blue to light blue with cloudy white spots.
