Merkaba Stars – Clear Quartz

This shape amplifies the beauty of this quartz from Brazil. In Ancient Egypt, the Mer-Ka-Ba was three words. Mer meant a kind of light that rotated within itself, Ka meant the human spirit and Ba, the human body. So Merkaba means a rotating light that would take the spirit and the body from one world or form into another. It can be activated by meditation, with the breathe and by changes in perception.

Silica (SiO2) is the building block of pure quartz, which happens to comprise more than 10 percent of the outer crust of Earth. Quartz was once thought to be solidified light and it is known as the master stone. In terms of crystals, quartz can be broken down into two major types; macro-crystalline (large six-sided crystals), and cryptocrystalline (micro), meaning the crystals are too small to be seen, even through a microscope. To break it down further, when quartz occurs as singular crystal points or clusters of points, it is considered macro-crystalline. This form of quartz is commonly transparent or translucent; though opaque forms also exist. It is noteworthy that while the macro versions may also appear within massive formations of cryptocrystalline (micro) quartz, not all varieties of cryptocrystalline appear as a macro version.

In crystal healing, quartz is used by many to remove negativity and promote harmony and co-operation within an environment. It is also used in cleansing and energizing other crystals and minerals. Excellent for meditation and accessing higher self and guides.
