Tibetan Quartz Crystal Healing Properties:
These stones act as a psychic cleanser, clearing debris from the aura and allowing more full spectrum light to fill our physical and energetic bodies. They help to rapidly expand our consciousness in order to release emotional attachments and commune with higher planes. Tibetan Quartz is believed to aid in healing the nervous system, repairing the myelin sheath, brain and nerve ganglia.
Tibetan Quartz History and Uses:
Tibetan Quartz is found at altitudes of over 15,000 feet in the Ganesh Himal Mountain range that borders Tibet and Nepal. This remote location is only accessible on foot during the warmer months so these crystals are collected by hand and brought down from the mountain in sacks. They often contain inclusions of hematite, carbon or water. They are very high vibration stones said to resonate to the sound of OM and have been traditionally used for spiritual protection and raising human consciousness.
Tibetan Quartz Geological Description:
Tibetan Quartz is a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 7. It is found in the Himalayan mountains of Tibet and Nepal and often contains black inclusions of an unidentifiable mineral.

Cultural Symbolism of the Triple Spiral
The triple spiral and countless triple protrusions of sacred geometry appear in cultures throughout history as do many symbols utilizing the number three. Hence, the use of three ams in the triskelion and other symbols’ interpretations vary. Common interpretations include:
Past, Present, Future
Mind, Body, Spirit
Creator, Destroyer, Sustainer
Father, Son, Holy Spirit
Creation, Preservation, Destruction
Maiden, Mother, Crone
Concerning the Celts in particular, they believed in three worlds: The Otherworld, The Mortal World, and the Celestial World, and the triskelion might have held that reverence to their culture.
Exploring the Concept of Motion of the Triskelion
When viewing a spiral, the eye naturally flows from one end to the other – sensing its envelopment of motion. Conceptually, these spirals may have represented the action of moving forward, progressing and revolving in cycles – as with the aforementioned concepts of the spiral representing past, present, future, or creation, preservation, destruction etc.
Considering that the lunar cycles and the motion of the sun was the best ‘time-keeper’ for most cultures, it only seems reasonable that they might also consider the importance of such ‘motion’ in the skies. Some concepts associated with such ‘cycles’ include: illuminating, spirituality, intuition, mystery, femininity, completion and rebirth.
Keeping motion in mind, the triple spiral over all seemed to have some sort of universal representation concerning advancement, personal, growth, human development, and spiritual expansion. This symbol simply resonates with fluid energy!
