Spirit Quartz is rare type of quartz that has many very small quartz crystals growing over larger quartz cluster. This magnifies the power. Each little crystal radiates in harmony with all of the other little crystal to radiate a very strong vibration.

Quartz Clusters

Metaphysical Properties of Clusters
In cluster form, Clear Quartz Points radiate their energies outward, into the surrounding environment. Clear Quartz Clusters can be programmed with intention and kept in a central place to emit their helpful energies. Placing a Clear Quartz Cluster on your desk where you work can help to relieve stresses and promote peace among those who enter the room.

 

First, quartz clusters make a great centerpiece for a grid. They hold the frequency of your intention (make sure your intention is crystal clear!) and amplify the vibration of the crystals that you place around it.

 

Multiple Clear Quartz Clusters, when strategically placed throughout the home or office, can have the beneficial effect of transmuting negative energies, and promoting higher vibrations within the environment. Some crystal lovers find that gridding a space like this actually keeps negativity from ever entering the protected area in the first place. While any type of Quartz formation is fine for gridding, Clear Quartz Clusters are perfect for this purpose.
