Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth's crust. It was first found high in the frozen mountains of the Alps. Ancient people believed it was a form of ice crystals that would never melt. Quartz has always been recognized as having extraordinary physical and metaphysical properties.
Quartz is a common stone, but a powerful one. It is mainly used in healing, as it provides a naturally balanced, solid-state energy field. Quartz is thought to bring harmony and balance. It enhances energy and thoughts and is powerfully protective. In early times. when all things were thought to be parts of a greater living consciousness, the quartz crystal was believed to synchronize the individual and total conscious with that of the heavens and advanced life forms.
In Native American belief, arrows signified direction, force, movement, power and direction of travel.
