Quartz - silicon dioxide crystallizing in prismatic hexagonal crystals; “Quartz has both piezoelectric (pronounced pie-ee-zo) and pyroelectric properties; the polarity of the quartz crystal will change when it is subjected to pressure or heat, as well as when it is held in the hand - the tip, normally positive and receiving energy, will then change and become negative, thus emitting energy which will radiate from the tip or from an edge... Quartz can be used to dispel static electricity... produces a naturally balanced, solid-state energy field... Quartz can be used to amplify body energy and thoughts... is said to bring the energy of the stars into the soul... harmonize and align human energies - thoughts, consciousness, emotions... connection between the physical dimension and the dimensions of the mind.... create altered states of consciousness... clear and activate the energy center of the body... ancient priests used quartz crystals to render negative energy impotent”. (Melody, 2000, p. 503-506)
