A true “golden healer quartz,” sometimes also referred to as simply “golden quartz,” is defined as a crystal cluster or crystal containing an iron oxide coating in between or underneath layers of crystal. Coloration can range from a clear, pale yellow to lemon to (darker) mustard. The coating on these crystals is transparent and almost greasy, and gives off a surprising and beautiful rainbow sheen when turned beneath a light source. Golden healers are dense and may be super clear or milky, depending on the specimen. They are found throughout the world. However, the highest ratio of this crystal mined from a single location can be found in Wales, in the the Celtic Quartz mine. Different shades in color and transparencies among specimens are believed to be associated with different abilities in the worlds of metaphysical and physical healing, so this fact may be taken into consideration when choosing a crystal for one’s personal collection and purposes.
Golden healer quartz is associated with the third (solar plexus) and eighth (above the head) chakras, all zodiac signs and the sun. The energy it gives off is described as simultaneously “gently soothing” and “powerful.” In the metaphysical world, it is perhaps regarded first as a stone of success. It is believed to increase creativity and self confidence and bring about success in business and other ventures. Aside from these benefits, it is also commonly worn in the form of jewelry or kept nearby because it is said to cleanse the soul and assist those involved in spiritual work, in that it can facilitate even long distance spiritual communication (including between worlds), help one to discover his or her spiritual purpose, enhance all psychic abilities, and serve as a natural computer or “spiritual library,” storing information for access at a later date. Golden healer quartz may also prove a useful companion in meditation, helping one to keep focus and filtering out many distractions. Additionally, this crystal is claimed to connect its keeper with the energy of the Christ (and thus join the will with Divine will), assist him or her in maintaining integrity in relationships, instill in him or her the desire to move forward in life, and more.
Although golden healer quartz is probably more famous for its metaphysical qualities, it is also valued in the world of physical healing, where it makes a very useful addition to the medical bag. Specifically, golden healer quartz has been used by crystal healers to cleanse and enhance all of the organs of the body. It is also sometimes used to stimulate the body’s immune system, reduce tension and provide relief for those who struggle with a range of debilitating stomach problems. However, its energy is believed to incite overall healing on all levels, making it beneficial in all situations where healing is needed. In addition, it may promote the recognition of techniques and methods required to further recovery in any and all disorders.
