Singing crystal (aka. singing quartz) is a variety of quartz with unique tonal qualities. When two pieces are gently touched together, they will produce a clear, high-pitched resonant tone. It’s a difficult sound to describe, but the difference is easy to discern when you compare it to the ‘clack’ sound you normally get from touching two crystals together.
The most prominent qualities of singing crystals have to do with facilitating communication on multiple levels. They have been used to stimulate contact between entities, both terrestrial (people, animals, plants, etc) and celestial (angels, guides, etc.), and to remove blockages that prevent easy understanding between beings.
The sound that singing crystals make is said to be of the higher-pitched ‘OM’ vibration, and can be used to bring forth creative energies that are in line with the universal ‘blueprint’. It can also be used to align the energy centers of the body, calm the aura, and break apart unnatural psychological ‘constructs’ that separate us from true understanding.
These crystals are most often used as part of meditative practice. Simply sit quietly, lightly holding two pieces of singing quartz (or one singing quartz and another quartz crystal) parallel in one hand, and gently move them around so you can hear the tone they produce. Focus on and become aware of this sound, and allow the vibration to bring your energy centers into alignment. Finally hold the crystals against your throat, visualizing blue light in that location, and allow the energy center there to open and stimulate your creative and communicative aspects.
