Red Hematoid Quartz (also known as Hematoid Quartz or Red Hematite in Quartz) is an excellent defensive crystal. It is very useful for transmuting negativity into light energy and helps with healing from psychic attacks. Using this quartz also removes tension from the body and aligns the root and crown chakras.
Red Hematoid Quartz has been given many nicknames. The most popular is “Fire Quartz” for the crystal’s reddish-orange color, though “Harlequin Quartz” is also notable.
Some believe that the Egyptians used this type of quartz for protective purposes.
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.
Hematoid Quartz can align all the chakras, but is especially useful for working with the lower chakras.
You can place quartz in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
Red Hematoid Quartz is typically associated with Scorpio.
Folklore states that Red Hematoid Quartz calms anxiety and enhances concentration. Traces of pyrite have been found in these crystals, which can further aid its carrier by warding off negativity.
