Clear Quartz Flame Sculpture - Unique #8
This colorless sphere of transparent natural quartz crystal has some planes and veil-like inclusions within. This quartz stone is cut and polished in the shape of a sphere. There are small inclusions that look like a smudge in the crystal, but overall the crystal is colorless and transparent.
Real clear quartz will not have air bubbles inside, but glass will. It’s really that simple. Air bubbles in glass will look like tiny spheres that don’t move around. This is caused by the way glass is formed, which is very different than the way quartz is formed naturally in the earth.
In feng shui, the ancient art of creating optimal energy flow in an environment, a sphere is ideal to place in the center of a room for its balancing properties.
Clear Quartz is known as the “master healer” and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases, and regulates energy. This rough quartz cluster is a must-have for crystal healers and collectors of all types.
The term “quartz” is derived from the Greek word “icy cold,” which the Greek philosopher Théophrastus believed the clear quartz was a form of permanent ice, so cold it would never thaw. The Japanese word for clear quartz translated roughly as “perfect jewel” because they believed it symbolized space, purity, and patience. In Scotland and Ireland clear quartz was carved into spheres and used for healing. We are more familiar with spheres of crystal today crystal balls are often used by fortune tellers.
