Crooked Little Quartz
Birthstone: Aries & Sagittarius
The Leonides family all live together in a not-so-little crooked house. Which one of them poisoned the patriarch, Aristides, and why his late wife’s rose Quartz necklace is missing?
Quartz is one of the most well-known minerals on Earth. It is also the most varied of all minerals, occurring in all different forms, habits, and colors. Indeed, more variety names have been given to Quartz than to any other stone.
Quartz, since ancient times, has been beloved by many for its lovely, reflective, healing, and protective properties. Clear Quartz stones have been and, actually, still are believed to be living things that take a breath once in a century. In fact, quite a few cultures throughout time have believed transparent Quartz crystals were an incarnation of The Divine, with the icy beauty of this gem appreciated in the afterlife. Clear Quartz stones are found in many places all over the world. It is also known as either “rock crystal” or “ice crystal” because of its icy clear quartz color. The Greek word for ice is “krystallos” which is where the colorless Quartz gemstone got its name.
Quartz healing properties are extremely beneficial in spiritual healing. The Quartz stones enhance personal awareness and growth and act as beacons of light and energy for highly spiritual people. Connections between the physical and the spiritual world are deeply enhanced with the use of Quartz. The stone is believed to treat migraine headaches, motion sickness, and vertigo.
Many jewelers use Quartz to create beautiful garments that suit many styles and occasions. Our extended collection of pieces made out of those semi-precious stones might delight or even shock fans of Quartz—just like Agatha’s sinister reinterpretation of a nursery rhyme in her famous novel “Crooked House” with an ending that her publishers initially considered too shocking, even for Agatha Christie :)
