Amphibole Quartz is a clear quartz with elements of mineral inclusions. The inclusions can be red, orange, smoky, white, and mauve colors swirling inside or along flat planes inside the clear quartz. They may vary from very clear with faint colors to mostly colored crystals.
Amphibole is also called Angel Wing Quartz, since it inspires us to ask our ancestors, angels, guides and elders in this life ad past lives for support and guidance.
The inclusions of the amphibole minerals (hence this crystal is also known as Amphibole Quartz) including Hematite, Kaolin, Limonene, and Lithium enhance the different qualities. Hematite is red and orange, asking us how open we are to feeling safe and expressing ourselves creatively in the world. Limonene appears yellow to our eyes, and inspires us to consider how we shine out into the world. Lithium is a mauve color and reminds us to integrate the various aspects of our personalities, minds and thoughts.
These quartz points have cut bases.
