This opaque variety of blue quartz is composed of silicon dioxide and is believed to owe its colour to inclusions of tourmaline, rutile or zoisite. It is often confused with blue aventurine or dumortierite.
As a healing stone, blue quartz enhances organizational abilities, self-discipline and orderliness. It is also ideal for soothing and stress relief.
Blue Quartz is used by metaphysical healers to treat the lungs, heart and spleen, as well as to heal the endocrine system. It is said to stabilize the metabolic process and to strengthen the immune system.
Crystals and energy healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for western medical care. Energy Healing is not meant to replace conventional medicine, but rather to complement and enhance it.
