Are you working towards releasing anger? Or maybe strengthening your root chakra? Fire Quartz is a beautifully unique form of Hematoid Quartz, with its red streaks and fiery energy, Fire Quartz definite stands out in a crowd. Also known as Red Hematoid Quartz, the color ranges from pale pinkish orange to a dark rust color. Metaphysical Experts view all forms of Hematoid Quartz as a transformational crystal that blends the amplifying properties of Quartz with the stabilizing properties of iron in the form of hematite.
Hematoid quartz crystals have been used in spiritual practices for centuries and were first used as a talisman by the Ancient Egyptians. Found in Brazil and other South American locations, Hematoid Quartz is truly one of nature's most remarkable gemstones. The name derives from the Greek word hematomas meaning blood, and the Latin word quartz. The ancient Greeks thought it symbolized life and vitality because it reminded them of blood. Today, this metaphysical mineral can help with blood issues such as anemia and menstrual problems.
Composition and Formation
Fire Quartz comes in two forms. One is where the iron material combines with the silicon dioxide, and the quartz forms its shape. The other is where the quartz crystal first forms, and in subsequent events, the quartz crystal is covered with a thin coating of iron.
Quartz is Silicon Dioxide, formed for silicon and oxygen. This is the base component for many other types of crystals and stones. Hematoid Quartz forms when red or yellow hematite particles become embedded in the crystal; this is what determines its color.
