Because Clear Quartz is such a worldly crystal, cultures from around the world have their own mythology related to this stone. 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. European clairvoyants in the middle ages used crystal balls made of Clear Quartz, as they were said to assist in predicting the future. This may be where the crystal ball originated!
In South America, native cultures thought Clear Quartz crystal skulls held their ancestors’ spirits. And in Ancient Egypt, Clear Quartz crystal was used to construct monuments as it was believed to channel the energy from the planetary system. And in ancient Japanese mythology, Clear Quartz crystal stone was regarded as a symbol of perfection because it was believed to be the physical form of a white dragon’s breath. The mythology held that dragons were symbols of generosity and benevolence, so the crystal also became associated with such values 🤍
