All About "Clear Quartz Clusters"
Dear Healing Crystal Enthusiast:
Clear Quartz Clusters
by Crystal CAT
An all time favorite crystal of mine, Clear Quartz has the good fortune of being named a "Stone of Power" and the "Master Healer" of the mineral kingdom. While many minerals have static properties, Quartz Crystals can be programmed for virtually any purpose! Clear Quartz works with all of the chakras, and are found all over the globe, in many different types of formations.
All Quartz have the quality of piezoelectricity (meaning it can transform one type of energy into another). Since more and more scientists are discovering that everything consists of energy, the ramifications of this are being confirmed by science. A metaphysical use of quartz is where you can transmute negative energy into positive energy.
Another reason that I am so in love with Quartz is the sacred geometry of it's molecular makeup. Quartz molecules are hexagonal in shape and this is why almost all quartz points form with 6 distinct sides in a hexagonal shape. With the key characteristics being amplification, memory, and programmability, Quartz Crystals have many uses in your home and elsewhere. Clear Quartz Clusters are a "family" of Clear Quartz Points, clustered together, either in a matrix or just stuck together.
Quartz Clusters are a popular metaphysical energy tool as they have a unique power that I work with on a fairly regular basis. Large or small, accessing the energies from these clusters can be a benefit for you, those around you, and your environment. There are many different types of Clear Quartz Cluster formations, and at least as many uses. Today, I will list my own experiences for you, with the types I have used the most.
Of course, you should always cleanse any crystal that is a member of the Quartz family, and Clear Quartz Clusters are no exception. My preferred methods for cleansing Clear Quartz Crystal are smudging, running water, and/or sunlight.
For specifics on cleansing stones, please see our January newsletter on that subject here:

Before any programming is done, Clear Quartz Clusters already have a tendency to emit protecting, cleansing, calming, high vibe energy in many directions at once, which is one of the reasons I love these beautiful clusters so much! I have quite a number of various Clear Quartz Clusters in my home, and too many to list here, so here is a sample of what I have and how I have used them:
I have meditated with each of my clusters at one time or another. Sometimes, I will simply meditate while staring at a Quartz Cluster that I hold in my hand, just to see what comes up from the depths of my subconscious mind, or to see what gifts the superconscious may hold for me that day. At other times, I might program the cluster before meditation, for a specific purpose, such as connecting with my higher self, or to receive a solution to some problem I am dealing with at the time.
Two ways that I use to meditate with my clusters are:
1) I hold the cluster in my hand and sit with my eyes closed, becoming as quiet in my mind as possible, and
2) I either hold the cluster in my hand, raised up to eye level, or sit at a table with the cluster raised up, and I gaze into the Crystals and try to enter the cluster with my mind's eye.
This second example can get you lost for hours depending on the size and detail of the cluster. Sometimes, ideas will come to me as I meditate, while others, the ideas won't come to me until later on that day or the next. Either way, I always end up with some type of benefit resulting from my meditations with the clusters.
I have several medium-sized clusters that have an average dimension in inches of 3"Tx3"Wx3"D. These clusters are mostly cloudy, but I have a couple that are very clear, but a bit smaller. I use these Clusters for sending out high, protective and loving vibes into the room. After cleansing, I program them to emit their loving, soothing vibes, for the purpose of helping any people who enter the environment, as well as myself. I've found that Clear Quartz Clusters work very well in this capacity, allowing arguments to become seldom and cooperation to flourish.
I use my smallest Quartz Clusters for a boost when needed by keeping one in my pocket, but also as a comfort. Certain small clusters, of just two or three main crystals, emit these sweet vibrations of pure love when you hold them. Sometimes, I will apply a small cluster like this to a particular area that I feel needs a little healing.
I had an incredible experience that I will share with you. A few months ago, I was very ill with the flu, to the point where I could barely breathe, and I had a very sharp pain in my chest, on my left lung. It felt like there was actually a hole in my lung. I didn't know what to do as it was the middle of the night and I couldn't sleep with this pain and lack of air. So I took out one of my smaller Quartz Clusters that had already been pre-cleared, and sat with it, focusing my intention of healing into the crystal. Once I felt the program was complete, I placed the crystal onto the part of my chest where I felt the pain, and I was able to eventually fall asleep. When I woke up the next morning, the pain was gone and I was able to breathe easier.
Finally, another great way to use Clear Quartz Crystal Clusters is as a grid around the home, for protection and good fortune, among other things. For this purpose, I program my clusters to sit in their strategic places around the perimeter of my home; In at least the four outermost corners, and sometimes in various places in between. I place them inside the house though, because I lost some Fluorite stones which I had put around the outside of my house once.
A specific situation I can cite for you is when I was going through a period of time, during which it seemed that I was living in a stream of very bad luck. Remembering an episode of Charmed, where they used Clear Quartz Crystal Clusters as a barrier for negative energy, I cleared and then began sending my intention of cleansing and protection into each of my clusters. This took quite some time, but it turned out to be worth the time and effort! While I didn't win the lottery or anything that blatant, I did sense a shift of the energies in my home to a more positive state. I also noticed a feeling that I was protected against outside influences.
Of course, there is no scientific way to know if these things indeed worked for me, or if it was just a coincidence, but I personally believe that they did because I noticed the change. Sometimes it was subtle, while other times it was a quick and intense difference. This is my humble opinion that where intention flows, energy goes, and I believe my Clear Quartz Crystal Clusters magnified and focused my intentions in these situations which I have illustrated for you in this article.
Thank you for reading this spotlight today. I send you many blessings on your own personal crystal journey!
