Lithium Quartz

I visited a crystal show today and one of the crystal keepers there told me that I needed Lithium Quartz. I recently had a bad cold that lasted 3 weeks and have been wearing Moldavite by itself or in combination with other high energy stones for a while now. She told me to stop wearing the high energy stones because they were too energetic for me and were wearing me out.
Can anybody tell me more about Lithium Quartz and it’s healing properties?

 

  • I use my lithium crystal when I am sad…depressed.  It’s very calming to me, thus helping me deal with emotional stress.

 

  • I’m afraid I’m not familiar with Lithium Quartz. There is a crystal called Lepidolite, which is a Lithium crystal and is extremely calming. They often will have Pink Tourmaline crystals embedded (I have a few big chunks at my website and smaller polished pieces).

There may be a Quartz that has been treated with Lithium, much like the Aqua Aura (not sure of the spelling) Quartz which has been treated with Gold. The process creates an incredibly beautiful crystal.

Hopefully someone else has more specific information on a Lithium Quartz.

 

  • Not sure why she was telling you that you needed lithium quartz, though I do agree that you shouldn’t be wearing the moldavite while you are sick. Lithium quartz (aka li-quartz) is a type of quartz crystal that has lithium inclusions and is pretty rare, and therefore not cheap. The lithium inclusions are the same that give lepidolite its color.

The color of the phantoms can range from pale pink to deep purple with grey and black due to manganese inclusions. Here is some information I found on lithium crystals:

Li-quartz is a gentle healer that opens the heart chakra and moves energy through the body. It stimulates the third eye chakra and sends energy flowing into all the mind centers. It can be used safely to activate all of the chakras. These stones also enhance meditation and improve the quality of the inner visions received.

The vibration of these stones is one of profound healing, emotional peace, release from tension and awakening of the Higher Self.
Healers love working with these crystals and they are highly recommended for stone lay-outs; opening and activating or repairing any of the chakras, mending ‘holes’ in the aura and clearing the etheric field of any unwanted influence.

Hope this helps.

 

  • I have a few pieces of lithium quartz and they are very high energy stones. The mood is a bit different as you might imagine, but I do think they would be very helpful with colds and adrenal burnout, which seems to be what you are feeling. This can come about when you get over exposed to certain stones that can stimulate adrenals.

Another source of lithium is lepidolite. It is usually easier to find than LQ and is cheaper. It also has
more Lithium than LQ.

Book Shelf asked Are quartz crystals safe for aquariums?

I bought some quartz for my fossil and mineral collection, when I got this crazy notion that they might look cool in my aquariums. I have a tank with tetras, and one with a betta at the moment. Will they be safe to add? They are a little sharp, which is also a concern.. Here are my crystals - http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=sevamc&s=6 Oh, good point. Would they be ok with skirted tetras?

And got the following answer:

Quartz is fine to add to the tank, but those crystals look really jagged and I would be wary of putting them in with a Betta because of the flowing fins. EDIT: Eh, I think it would depend on the placement of the quartz and the size of the tank. Like if they were placed kind of out of the way in a larger tank (perhaps 30-40 gallons) I would say you shouldn't worry, but if it's a 20 or smaller and they are placed kind of in the middle I would be wary of them accidentally getting scared, darting away, and then tearing a fin in the process. If you have a lot of plant cover though and they're kind of on the side in a lower part of the tank you could probably get away with it.
