Comparing the Golden Healer, Tangerine Quartz and Hematoid Quartz
By Kristi Huggins
Quartz crystals come in many shapes and sizes.¬† The addition of colored minerals and inclusions incorporate not only a specific energy, but a unique beauty as well.¬† Let‚Äôs take a look at three Quartz specimens that are similar in content-each contains Iron Oxide, in this case Hematite.¬† The differences are in how the Iron Oxide is physically presented, the amount of material included in each piece and the location in which it is raised.
Golden Healers are defined as a crystal or crystal cluster with an iron oxide coating under or in between layers of crystal.¬† Colors will range from a pale, clear yellow to lemon to darker mustard.¬† These crystals will have almost a greasy like, transparent coating, which may show a surprising rainbow or two when turned under a light source.¬† Unlike Tangerine or Limonite stained Quartz, the color of the Golden Healer will not be affected by an acid bath due to the coating being ‚Äúprotected‚ÄĚ by a thin layer or layers of crystal growth.¬† In other words, this is not a crystal that has a dusting or stain on the outside, but instead it is included within the crystalline growth. Golden Healers can be super clear to milky and dense.
The Golden Healer is a powerful healing crystal as it allows the golden light of Universal Life Force to flow into body through the Crown Chakra.¬† The energy then spreads its golden light throughout the body as it clears blockages and imbalances that ready the body for multi-level healing.
The Golden Ray energy of the Golden Healer represents the Divine Spirit, Source and Creation.¬† A Master Healer, the Golden Healer is of the highest vibration.¬† Its energy is powerful, yet gentle and soothing.
Golden Healers can be used to raise the holder‚Äôs energy vibration or frequency, which will facilitate spiritual communications over a long distance, including between worlds and dimensions.
Hold a Golden Healer when meditating to connect with Source energy and to reconnect with the ‚ÄúOne‚ÄĚ.¬† Place a Golden Healer cluster under a healing or massage table to fill the area with gentle, sustainable energy throughout your healing session.¬† Highlight a Golden Healer on an altar or grid, to raise the frequency/vibration of your intent.
This is a powerful and amazing piece, which enhances joy, peace and the spirit of Oneness.
Tangerine Quartz is identified as a quartz point or cluster that is stained with a Hematite (Iron Oxide) film or coating. This stain is on the outside of the crystal and can be removed when cleaned in an acid bath.¬† Polishing or tumbling can also remove the color.¬† Tangerine Quartz can range in hues from pale yellow to deep rust.¬† Most Tangerine Quartz is transparent to semi-transparent.
Metaphysically, Tangerine Quartz is a remarkable tool to use when working with the issues of Inner self (understanding, acceptance, growth).¬† It helps to evaluate and face these inner issues without judgment or criticism.¬† The energy of Tangerine Quartz allows for the forgiveness and release of past issues/traumas that no longer serve and in fact have held us back from going forward.
Tangerine Quartz works well with the Sacral Chakra energies, enhancing creativity and the acceptance of Change.¬† Tangerine Quartz supports balance in the Sacral Chakra and helps to "Put the Past in the Past". It is a crystal of strength and tenacity.
Tangerine Quartz exhibits an energy that allows a greater understanding of the events affecting us in our lives.¬† Tangerine Quartz can be used to find a place of calm and center after a physical or energetic trauma.¬† It can help heal from a psychic attack, fostering a sense of compassion and understanding rather than assigning blame.
A wrapped Tangerine Quartz Pendant or point would be a wonderful piece to use when you feel pulled in to a situation that is filled with chaos or drama.¬† It will give you the strength necessary to step out of this dense energy, as it raises your frequency to a more positive vibration, making your interactions with others more enjoyable and productive.
Had a difficult day?¬† Place a Tangerine Quartz point at each outside corner of your bathtub with the points facing towards the center.¬† This mini grid will allow for the release of tension and stress built up during the day.¬† It will also ground and calm the chatter of the mind, allowing the ‚ÄúWhat if‚Äôs‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúI should have‚Äôs‚ÄĚ to gently melt away.¬† This same formation can be used in meditation as well.¬† Simply sit as you would in meditation and place each point facing towards you-one in front, one in back, one on either side.
The energy of Tangerine Quartz is amazingly subtle, smooth and highly effective.
Hematoid Quartz, whose proper name is Ferruginous Quartz, is defined as a single Quartz point or cluster that contains a heavy concentration of Hematite and/or Limonite.¬† This concentration will generally appear as (1) dense dusting and/or stains on the outside of the quartz crystals or clusters or (2) colorful inclusions (dots, drips, phantoms or overall color change) within the quartz crystals or clusters.¬† Colors include red, brown, and/or yellow.¬† In its natural state, Hematoid quartz will appear mostly opaque, while in a polished state, the clarity of the crystal and the intensity of the Hematite inclusions can be clearly seen.
Hematoid quartz contains both the amplification properties of Quartz with the balance and stability of Hematite.¬† It is a highly energetic piece that can assist not only in removing negativity but also transforming and transmuting this energy into a positive and pure Universal light of love.
The combination of Quartz and Hematite balances the body, mind and spirit.¬† It brings a unique clarity and understanding to the emotions, helping to understand the difference between an unconscious reaction and a conscious response.¬† Hematoid Quartz also assists when Self Worth and Self Esteem are lacking.
Hematoid Quartz enhances focus and concentration and would be especially helpful for those with ADD and ADHD.¬† Those with short attention spans or have trouble completing projects would benefit from holding or carrying Hematoid Quartz.¬†¬† Use Hematoid Quartz for grounding and balance when feeling scattered.¬† It can also be used to calm anxieties, panic and/or hysteria.
Hematoid Quartz can be used in the treatment of blood disorders, to balance the chakras, boost the immune system, stimulate healing, strengthen liver and kidney functions, and cleanse toxins.
