Enchanting Himalayan Quartz

Himalayan Quartz Meaning and Healing Properties

Himalayan Quartz is the trade name for Quartz mined high altitudes in the Himalayan Mountain range. This incredible and rare crystal is mined by hand in the sacred Kullu Valley of Himachal Pradesh, India, an area referred to as the Valley of the Gods. The word Himalaya translates to “Abode of Snow”. Himalayan Quartz can only be mined for roughly eight weeks a year when the snow line recedes to 5,500 meters. Himalayan Quartz is one of the most sacred and difficult crystals to obtain, because of their remote mining location. There is no electricity or mining equipment accessible at such high altitudes so all the material must be carried down by yaks on a seven day journey back to civilization.

The Himalayan Mountain range in Asia, contains some of the Earth's tallest mountain peaks. The Himalayan Mountains span six countries and contains 10 of the 14 tallest mountains in the world. The Himalayas are sacred for followers of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, and the indigenous Bon tradition of Tibet. The region is the birthplace of Buddhism, filled with sacred shrines and pilgrimage sites. Mount Kailash is believed to be the location where the deities Shiva and Parvati reside. The Himalayas have been symbolized as a sacred place of self-realization. Sages, yogis, philosophers and spiritual seekers come to the Himalayas to find peace, solitude and serenity. 

Quartz, also known as “Rock Crystal”, is pure silicon dioxide. Quartz is named from the Greek word “krystallos”, meaning “ice”. Quartz is a mineral composed of silicon and oxygen, with a chemical composition of SiO2. All other varieties of Quartz, such as purple Amethyst, yellow Citrine, green Praisolite, or pink Rose Quartz are colored due to tiny inclusions in the silica. Quartz is the most abundant mineral on Earth and found all over it! Most of the sand in the world's beaches is actually the mineral Quartz. Quartz is resistant to weathering so as some rocks weather away, Quartz will remain. It forms at all temperatures and is abundant in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks.

Himalayan Quartz is the most sacred and powerful of all forms of Quartz. A stone of teaching and wisdom, Himalayan Quartz guides you on your healing journey. Himalayan Quartz holds the powerful energy of the healers who have resided in the area for centuries. It holds the purest light healing energy to enhance healing work. Unlock the sacred wisdom of the Himalayas and use this potent energy in your practice.
