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. Spirit Quartz is recommended for auric shielding, astral projection, dreamwork and shamanic journeying. Spirit quartz is primarily associated with the crown chakra but can be used to balance and align all the chakras.
