Kaolinite inclusions are responsible for white coloration. Sometimes the white inclusions resemble angel wings and are the inspiration for the name “Angel Phantom Quartz.” Specimens with white inclusions are believed to increase one’s clairaudient abilities. Limonite inclusions are responsible for yellow, brown, and gold coloration. Specimens with yellow, brown, or gold inclusions are said to boost physical energy, vitality, well-being, and psychic protection. Lithium inclusions are responsible for lavender, lilac, and greyish-pink colors. Specimens with lavender, lilac, or greyish-pink inclusions are believed to stabilize one’s mood, alleviate stress, and help hypertension problems. Hematite inclusions are responsible for deep red, pink, orangey pink, and orange coloration. Specimens with colors ranging from deep red to orange are said to ground the holder and increase clarity, inner-peace, & calm feelings.
Amphibole Quartz is believed to connect to the throat, third eye, and crown chakras; thereby, expanding one's consciousness and assisting one in receiving guidance from spirit guides. If used in meditation, amphibole quartz might help you overcome childhood traumas or reveal patterns from past lives that one needs to become aware of and resolve. The denser the inclusions, the more useful an amphibole quartz specimen will be for past life recollection. Place amphibole quartz on your third eye during meditation to stimulate the pineal gland and send that energy up to open the crown chakra. Sleeping with or near amphibole quartz might relieve one’s worries and alleviate insomnia. Amphibole quartz stimulates lucid dreaming. To use it for this purpose, place the amphibole quartz under your pillow and prepare to have dreams in which you can participate and that you remember easier. Similarly, this type of quartz can help children suffering from nightmares.
Combine amphibole quartz with a variety of other minerals for increased metaphysical effects. Aragonite, Celestite, Selenite, and Prehnite pair well with amphibole quartz.
