Spirit Quartz is an unusual member of the Quartz family and is found only in the Magaliesberg Mountain region of South Africa, first appearing around 2001. It is characterized by its formation of tiny, druzy crystals covering the shaft of a larger quartz point. Most Spirit Quartz is Amethyst, though Citrine, Smokey, and White Quartz are also mined.
Spirit quartz is also known as cactus quartz or porcupine quartz. In terms of crystal healing, spirit quartz is a protective crystal believed to bring peace and positive energy. It is said to transform negative energy into positive, encouraging emotional peace and happiness. Ametrine's duality of Amethyst and Citrine makes it a powerful companion for creative, healing and psychic workings. It is said to stimulate the intellect and to get rid of negative energy. It will provide protection as you journey through these unfamiliar landscapes, and light your way back to familiar ground.
