Snow Quartz Gemstone
GIRASOL OPAL, AKA GIRASOL QUARTZ CRYSTAL, or just Milky QUARTZ
Snow quartz is any quartz crystal or cluster that is white in color and cloudy. The cloudy white character of the crystals is what lead to the variety name, snow. The cloudiness of snow quartz comes from microscopic inclusions of fluids that have been encased in the crystal from the time the crystal first grew.
Iron oxides have precipitated in some of the cracks in the crystal. Because of its resemblance with marble, milky quartz with such a pattern is sometimes called marble quartz.
Snow /milky Quartz holds the majority of information in the crystal world. The snow appearance is caused by many bubbles of un-solidified quartz solution floating in the crystal. Scientists have recently discovered a way of storing terabytes of information in a single one of these bubbles! So think just how much information is packed into these crystals. This information is constantly being released, and in some cases, gathered up as well. When these beautiful crystals come in contact with the right guardian, it triggers a large release of information into the ether to be picked up on by the general population, to the point where some Snow quartz crystals will actually visibly become clearer. These crystals tend to be gatherers of information as well, so don’t be surprised if you have milky crystals that fluctuate between becoming clear, and milky again.
Snow Quartz is one of the most underrated healing crystals out there, when in fact it is one of the most powerful! A fundamental shift in human consciousness is the only process that will bring peace, calm and balance to human kind. No amount of money and or wars has ever or will ever make a real difference. Snow Quartz Crystals are a key part of upgrading the human consciousness pool. They need to spread around the planet now in order to release their ancient Angelic wisdom, so that it may permeate through human consciousness into the general population. It matters not that we do not necessarily know the meaning and details of this information being released, the important part is that the information is being released in the first place! The crystals themselves know and regulate the information released by the vibration of their surroundings, by this I do not mean the room or house they reside in, but rather the whole neighborhood, communication networks, cell sites, TV stations and such. They actively monitor every vibration they are exposed too and will respond with preset instructions keyed into them by the Angelic realm. These crystals are far from one trick pony’s and have many other abilities as well, do not worry that you may be taking them away from their key (re-keying) duties as they are more than capable of multi tasking. In fact, using these crystals for multi purposes will increase their energy and thus range of effectiveness!
Snow Quartz Crystal is The Observation Stone, acquiring its name by the ability to help innocence dominate over observation. This stone has the ability to help you move back into a child-like (not child-ish) perspective of life, letting innocence and trust dominate your observations — and resulting thoughts and actions. Snow Quartz helps you remember what it’s like to see your world with the enthusiasm and natural curiosity of a child, and to remember to not take it all quite so seriously — to remember to also see the world with the eyes and emotions of a child while acting with the experience and intellect of an adult. Snow Quartz stimulates your innate capacities for compassion and empathy with all living things. This is an extremely soothing and calming stone, naturally harmonizing what comes into it’s energy field, automatically bringing peace and even outright serenity — not a term we hear a lot lately. As you’ve no doubt guessed, this is an excellent balancing stone, and is especially good for gaining and then maintaining emotional and spiritual balance. Snow Quartz helps you gauge how you’re doing with all of this on your current path by the amount of “clearness” it acquires while in your possession.
Snow Quartz makes an excellent Sleep Stone and Dream Stone, promoting both sound peaceful sleep and soothing dreams. You might pair it with Rose Quartz and/or Lepidolite anytime you want a restful night.
Sometimes Snow Quartz can be found with inclusions of Tourmaline tucked inside. Snow Quartz with an inclusion of Black Tourmaline is exceptionally adept at helping you regain lost spiritual balance, is very effective during times of transition, and any other time you feel “off balance” for any reason.
It is said that this particular variety of Snow Quartz has the unique ability to help smooth and redistribute energy, healing any “jagged” auras. Tweaked your curiosity yet?
