Phantom Quartz Healing Properties & Meaning Video
For what and How Does One Use it?
Phantom Quartz crystals are all about growth and moving on, moving past blockages.
On a physical level, these crystals are created when another substance other than quartz washes over the crystal, leaving a layer on the termination during the crystal’s natural growth cycle. The crystal continues to grow, leaving an image of itself where it was at the time the substance washed over it. Phantoms can be made up of such minerals as Chlorite, Hematite, or even Clay. On occasion heat can play a part, causing a phantom to be visible through a different color shade. Most often either Smoky or Amethyst can display these heat-induced types of Phantom.
The most powerful phantom configurations are termed as being 3D. This is where the substance has totally covered the entire termination, leaving a three-dimensional image of itself.
Phantom crystals are very good for helping us move past blockages, where we may have become “stuck.” The type of inclusion that makes up the phantom also plays a part in the gifts that these special crystals have to offer us. They can also be used to project growth and plan milestones.
Hold a Phantom Quartz and visualize/remember a traumatic time in your life that you may perceive as having stunted your growth. Now see yourself actually becoming stronger through this experience. Let that experience become a marker, a testament to your strength, growth and perfection in that moment. Now bring that perfection and strength forward to the present day. Give thanks to the Phantom Crystal in helping you change your perception and facilitating your self-healing!

For what and How Does One Use it?
Smoky Quartz is almost the default crystal in any crystal healing layout. It is grounding and protective, and can transform negative energy into positive energy. As one friend put it to me, Smoky Quartz is good for humans, because we are currently quite murky beings ourselves!
It can also be found in Elestial form and on rare occasions, Cathedral formation. Smoky Quartz clusters can be found, but are really quite rare. Sometimes Smoky combines with Amethyst, which gives the benefits of both, as well as creating their own unique combined energy. Phantom Quartz crystals in Smoky are very powerful in breaking old patterns and blockages.
As an elixir Smoky Quartz can have great effect against radiation-induced illnesses. It purges toxicity from the major bodily organs. It is very good for reining in wayward emotions and helps one put things into perspective. Smoky Quartz helps keep us grounded while under great stress. It also is a great boost to the body’s immune system.
Smoky quartz works very well in conjunction with Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Citrine. In some cases you can get Bi-colored crystals such as Smoky and White Quartz, which has a balancing effect in all yin and yang issues. There is also a tri-color Elestial family that has Smoky/White and Citrine Quartz. These are very powerful manifestation crystals and are unfortunately getting hard to find now.
It is a very joyful crystal. It is helpful to hold if you have other crystals that un-ground you such as Moldavite.
A lot of Smoky Quartz on the market is actually heated Clear Quartz. Majestic Quartz only supplies natural Smoky Quartz. If it is not translucent at all, be very suspicious. I have only seen 2 Smoky Quartz crystals that are not translucent, but are actually the real thing.
