Clear quartz is the most iconic of the quartz family. One of the most abundant minerals in the world, clear quartz can develop in a wide range of environments and can be found on every continent. For this reason, quartz is tied into the lore of many ancient cultures from around the world.
The term “quartz” comes from the Greek word for “ice.”Ancient Greek philosophers like Theophrastus believed that the transparent stone was a form of permanent ice, so cold, it kept from thawing.
Every ancient culture had a different clear quartz meaning.
In Japan, the clear quartz meaning referred to a “perfect jewel” because they believed it symbolized space, purity and patience.
Indigenous North American cultures thought of the stone as a sentient being, and would gift it food as well as other offerings in respect for its clear quartz meaning. Both cultures in the Australia and South America have a similar quartz meaning within their creation myths that describes a cosmic serpent, the creator of life, who was being led by a quartz crystal.
To cultures in Central and South America, the quartz meaning was that of a vessel. The believed that the spirits of their ancestors were held in clear quartz like an urn for spirits. They carved the clear quartz stone into the shape of a human skull, and used it as a religious talisman. In Scotland and Ireland, quartz crystals were carved into spheres. They believed clear quartz had the metaphysical ability to heal ailments in their cattle. Today, different metaphysical attributes are given to the stone.
