The aesthetic and energy of Quartz expressed simply is the most beautiful rainbow that seems to hang delicately, and yet steadily upon the air. The rainbow is a refractory celebration and potent symbol of diversity, and this is a good metaphor through which to understand the clarity and ranging versatility of Quartz crystal. This beautiful sparkling mineral lends itself to a variety of energies, rituals or causes, and is one of the most versatile crystals out there.
Quartz tends to act like a potent amplifier and can be worn a variety of ways. Quartz mineral is sturdy enough to stand-up to shaping, and makes excellent jewelry, as well as geodes, raw crystal clusters or carved geometric and shapely centerpieces.

Quartz can be useful for all astrological placements, but is recommended especially for Solar Leo and Saturnian Capricorn placements for their crystal clear aesthetic and luminous nature. Leo is ruled by the Sun and desires amplification and purification, while Capricornian Saturn revels in the ordered molecular nature and structure of crystals. Quartz crystal has all of these qualities in abundance and can lend Leo a hand when it comes to keeping them humble. Too much sun however, can make the personality and structure of this crystal brittle if exposed to direct sunlight for more than 2 hours at a time.
Self-assured Capricorn often craves structural dignified authority and materialistic practicality. While in search of these, Capricorn can sometimes get lost in the dark and will sometimes suffer in silence during periods of fear and hopelessness, though there are few people they would tell this in earnest. Quartz offers physical manifestation powers paired with a redeeming lightness and bright quality! This light is akin to a lantern to the traveler wading through the long dark of the soul.
