Quartz is one of the most well-known minerals on earth and is also the most varied of all minerals, occurring in all different forms, habits, and colors. In history the Greek word for Quartz is "Krystallos," meaning "ice." Crystal quartz is not just known and used in the metaphysical world but has been used in much of the science and technology we know today. Why crystal quartz? It has the ability to amplify, store, transmit, focus absorb, release and regulate energies. A natural crystal has a very regular arrangement of atoms. In quartz these atoms vibrate at a very stable frequency and these characteristics make quartz an excellent receptor and emitter of electromagnetic waves.
It was discovered in 1880 by French physicists Jacques and Pierre Curie, that crystal quartz has a piezoelectric quality, the word
Okay, I mentioned that crystal quartz is a part of things we use every day and will go into some examples of this crystal connection. Crystal quartz is used in timekeeping. All clocks rely upon some form of oscillator to keep regular time; for example, mechanical clocks sometimes use a pendulum to regulate the motion of their hands. In a quartz timepiece, a small ring-shaped piece of crystal is made to vibrate at its natural frequency. A microchip reads how many times the quartz vibrates each second and uses that information to keep accurate time. Because the crystal's vibration is unfaltering, quartz clocks are among the most precise timekeeping devices, losing less than one hundred thousandth of a second each day. Quartz crystals can be used to regulate both digital and analog clocks and watches. Modern quartz watches now use a low-frequency bar or tuning-fork-shaped crystal. The major difference between good and indifferent time keeping is the initial frequency accuracy and the precision of the angle of cut of the quartz sheet with respect to the crystalline axis. Think of this in terms of sacred geometry. Crystal quartz is used in radios and transmitters to set broadcasting frequencies.
Not only has crystal quartz kept you on time or reminded you that you are late, it has also made the digital age possible with silicon chips; yes, crystal quartz has transformed the world. Crystal quartz is used in microscopes, ultrasound machines and credit cards.
