From the tiniest grain of silica sand to the mightiest of mountains, quartz comprises a significant part of the earth's crust and is often regarded as the master healer in the crystal therapist's toolbox. 

Quartz crystals are often classified by their shape, referred to as a formation or crystal habit, and each formation offers unique healing energies and spiritual lessons. 

Join Nicholas Pearson, crystal expert and award-winning author of Crystal Basics and Crystals for Karmic Healing, to explore the many facets offered by this foundational stone.

With each lesson, Nicholas will introduce new formations, describe their background and spiritual properties, and guide participants in ways to use them for personal healing and planetary transformation. Along the way you'll meet tabular quartz and Herkimer diamonds, candle quartz and cathedral lightbraries, and many more.
