Phantom Quartz is all about growth. It helps guide your footing forward even when you feel lost in a transition stage of your life. Often we don’t notice our personal growth until we reach a point where we can pause and reflect back on the road we’ve traveled. Phantom quartz brings clarity to your journey, so that you can be more aware of the signs that the universe is giving you and understand which direction you need to continue in. As stone of transition, phantom quartz can relieve the stress, anxiety, fear or regrets that accompany major shifts in your life. Much like physical growth, emotional and spiritual growth can cause growing pains. These manifest as worries that your new direction is wrong or not going to pan out like you want it to. They may even convince you to turn down opportunities that you’ve earned, and compel you to tread back into comfortable territory. Instead, forge ahead with the calming, motivating energy of phantom quartz.
This stone has one of the most unique appearances of all crystals. That’s because this stone is actually made up of two crystals—the primary growth and secondary growth. Like us, phantom quartz goes through different phases of growth. It begins developing as one stone, and then pauses as the growth of a new stone begins. When the secondary growth stops, the primary growth begins again and eventually envelopes the other crystal. This is what gives phantom quartz the appearance of having one stone “haunting” the other. Hence it’s ghostly name!
