Red Quartz for Sale
With colors ranging from deep, brick red and scarlet or maroon, to strawberry reds and lighter oranges, red quartz can be a dramatic-looking stone. The energy it carries, though, is usually rather cool and comforting. We typically associate red quartz with being particularly grounding because the crystal actually contains hematite. The presence of iron and iron oxide in the quartz creates all of the different shades of red that we see. And that unique pairing of quartz with hematite (or hematoid quartz) can offer some interesting benefits for energy work.
For example, hematite is known for its calming effects and has a strong connection with the root chakra. Many people gravitate toward hematite when they’re seeking protection from negative energies. It’s a great stone to carry in your pocket or wear as jewelry when you know you may be entering a stressful situation. Hematite can work to energetically absorb any of those negative vibrations. When we find that same mineral in quartz, the power can be amplified even more.
Hematite provides stability, and quartz helps promote balance throughout the entire chakra system. Clear quartz is especially influential with the crown chakra and is commonly known as the “master healer.” This makes red quartz stand out because those hematite inclusions offer strength. It simultaneously works to ground your body while also stimulating your energy flow and connection with higher truths. The combination of quartz with hematite is also used to quiet the mind and relieve overactive emotions.
Some people will find that red quartz helps them recover from chronic fatigue. This crystal even has connections with treating headaches, motion sickness, and other conditions related to a sense of “unbalance.” This is also a great crystal to help inspire creativity, or even rational thinking for extended periods of focus and concentration.
If you’re looking to enhance the properties of red quartz even further, you might want to combine the crystal with grounding stones, such as black obsidian or black tourmaline. Other nice complements for red quartz would be smoky quartz, tourmalated quartz, or iron pyrite.
