Garden Quartz

Also known as Inclusion Quartz, Scenic Quartz, Lodolite, and Shamanic Dream Stone, Garden quartz is a stone of nature and life. It is a complex stone, every piece looks different from another making it very unique and beautiful. Every part of these crystals show you a whole world of color and earth-y energy. It can be found in various colors and patterns, each one creating a little garden like scenery.


This mineral can only be found in the Minas Geras region of Brazil and is extremely sought after by collectors and spiritual practitioners.

Lodo or Loda is roughly translated from Brazilian to mean mud and refers to the ‘mud’ look of the inclusions inside the stone, this is also the same in the Greek Language where it means ‘muddy stone’.

Composition and Formation

Garden quartz forms when other minerals or crystals become trapped within the quartz as it is growing. The inclusions can form intricate patterns and designs that resemble gardens or landscapes, which is where the stone gets its name. The quartz itself is formed when silica-rich fluids are slowly deposited within cavities or fractures in rocks. Over time, the fluids solidify, and the quartz crystal grows larger. One of the most common inclusions found in garden quartz is chlorite, a green mineral that is known for its healing properties. Chlorite is believed to help cleanse the body of toxins, boost the immune system, and promote overall well-being. Another common inclusion in garden quartz is rutile, a golden mineral that is said to enhance spiritual growth and facilitate communication with the higher self.

Cleansing / Charging

Since Lodolite is a Quartz crystal, you have plenty of options when it comes to cleansing and charging. My personal favorite is by selenite, keeping your new stone on a slab of selenite overnight will help bring the crystal to its highest frequency and make sure it doesn’t have any leftover negative and/or stuck energy.

Additional Options:

  • Water

  • Salt

  • Sage / Incense

  • Bury in Earth
