This clear quartz crystal specimen was sourced from deep in the Himalayan mountain range of Skardu, Pakistan. Due to its remoteness, Skardu remains a stone paradise where many treasures are yet to be discovered. Known for producing many world-class stones and crystals, Skardu also produces some of the world's finest and rarest formations of clear quartz crystals. The variations in color, formation, style, and combination with other minerals from this region are stunning. For example, chlorite and tourmaline inclusions are common mineral combinations with quartz crystal from this exotic region. Look more closely and you'll see that some of these Himalayan quartz crystals display beautifully etched horizontal striations that are actually smooth to the touch. These horizontal etchings were carved by nature via water and ice over many millenia, giving each and every quartz specimen a unique signature. Quartz crystals that possess these horizontal striations around the crystal structure are known as Lemurian seed quartz, and this class of quartz crystals carry an even greater value to those who know. There is no limit to the number of ways you can use and apply Himalayan clear quartz in your life. Reiki and crystal healing are major uses of clear quartz due to its purity and channeling capability. Spice up your home and office decor using clear quartz and your imagination. Keep it in your prized crystal collection. You can also craft that special decorative ornament or piece of jewelry for you, your loved one, or your client. Whichever route you take, Himalayan clear quartz is an excellent and potent choice.
