Quartz crystals

Closeup of a crystal from our crystal mine in Bonsecours, Quebec, Canada. Quartz crystals interact with all forms of energy, which they are able to receive, store, transform, amplify and transmit. This is due to their innate capacity to vibrate at many different frequencies.

The use of quartz crystals is as old as the human race, they have long been used for survival in the form of arrowheads, knife blades and fire lighters. The original ‘power tool,’ crystals were used as talismans, to predict the future and to transmit healing energy. Specimen from our crystal mine.

Since the 1940s, scientists have developed thousands of applications for quartz and quartz crystals. Quartz crystals are what makes all our modern technology functional: computers, cell phones, televisions, radios, security cameras, electronic games, ultrasound, to name but a few! Microchips made of pure silicon - a product of quartz crystals - are the brains of every electronic device in existence. From watches to calculators to satellites to computers, these small chips account for the conveniences that make so many tasks easier! Specimen from our crystal mine.

Quartz crystals are composed of 99.9% silica and their structure is a network of interconnected SiO4 tetrahedra (four-sided pyramids). When we examine quartz crystals we are immediately struck by their geometric, crystalline appearance. Isn’t it amazing, that these crystals are shaped, facetted and polished by natural forces alone?

The structure of a quartz crystal is always hexagonal or six-sided. They come in the form of individual points or as clusters; crystals from our crystal mine are primarily formed into clusters.

Quartz crystals from our mine are sold exclusively in our store. Here you will find natural crystals which have only been cleaned; otherwise they are exactly as found in our crystal mine. Our beautiful crystals are approximately 300 million years old! Come to a crystal event, when you can infuse the crystalline energies!

Quartz crystals are useful to potentize elixirs. Here a crystal from our crystal mine is activating all the other gemstones to make a gem essence.

Beautiful specimens from our crystal mine can be admired in the museum, which is open during crystal events.
