In this last week of December, we are drawn to find a balance in the midst of turbulence. For this we turn to the Quartz family of crystals this week. With another eclipse on the horizon for the end of the week and the end of the year, 2010 is going out with a bang. Each member of the Quartz family, Clear Quartz, Smokey Quartz, Amethyst, and Citrine has a hand in helping us find a much needed respite from all the planetary influences of this month. If you plan to wear one of these crystals, wear it with the point down to be most effective. Hoping you all have a happy New Year.
