Why Rock Crystal is Rock-Solid for Skincare

Pure quartz, traditionally called rock crystal or clear quartz, is colorless and transparent or translucent. The dominant mineral in quartz is silicon.This stone has often been used for noteworthy ornamental carvings, such as the Lothair Crystal. The classic “crystal ball” is typically made of rock crystal. Other varieties of quartz contain colors and include citrine, rose quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz, milky quartz, and others.

Uncut clusters of rock crystal are organic treasures and look like crystal cities of fantasy stories. In a natural setting, the long and tapered clear prisms of quartz project upward from a common base. These are true mineralogical wonders found in various parts of the world. The cost of good-sized clusters of rock crystal is quite affordable.

Beyond being a beautiful ornament to your home, quartz can also contribute to your own personal beauty. Many skincare companies are now incorporating high rock crystals into their products, with the intention of harnessing the healing power of crystals. It’s a growing trend that is definitely turning heads and also providing real benefits.

Finely ground rock crystal makes an excellent exfoliator, able to remove dead and dry cells and leave skin smooth and even-toned. Quartz can also be added to other skincare products, including lotions, lip balms, and even bar soaps.

Quartz-containing products can also be designed to positively affect your mental and spiritual well being, leading to beneficial changes both inside and out. Quartz has been said to add energy to everything and anything. It contributes focus and clarity, and enhances sensitivity to others’ energies. Having a piece of quartz in your living space will affect the energy in that area. You might even consider carrying a piece of quartz with you, in your pocket or purse.

Clear quartz is considered an April birthstone, making it easy to find many types of birthstone jewelry containing quartz stones. Although rock crystal gems may be found in a variety of shapes and different configurations, based around the natural hexagonal crystalline structure, it does not really matter which one of these shapes you choose.
