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.
