Quartz Crystal Clusters – Revisit

As a reminder, we are going to revisit all the quartz crystal types, condensing the information to just a few items to make remembering easier. This week we’re going to revisit quartz crystal Clusters.

There is a long blog post on this, posted previously, here. I will try to extrapolate on that information rather than repeating it.


With the exception of Double Terminated crystals, quartz crystal grows on a matrix. To picture this, imagine a hand; the palm would be similar to the matrix with the fingers resembling the crystal points.

The clusters have been forming for millennia. As the earth moves, the direction of the original matrix may break and shift and points may fill in the gaps giving clusters an almost infinite range of possible configurations.

Clusters are good for helping with group dynamics. Any group, such as family or co-workers. 

Imagine all the points in the cluster as separate people. They have to get along to live so closely, sometimes overlapping, running through, squishing out… yet the clusters remain happy and cohesive. The energy of clusters is just that. Cohesive, happy, uplifting.

Families, co-workers, anywhere a group of people might need help in getting along is a great place to have a cluster. You could place one in an office on your desk, in your living room or family room.

Clusters also raise the energy in the environment.

Imagine a room full of Ascended Masters. The energy in that room would be so wonderful. Calm and healing with a high vibration. They wouldn’t even have to be doing anything. In just existing, their raised vibrations will raise the vibration in the room. The same is true with our crystal cluster friends.

Therefore, because there are so many crystals all adding to the already high vibration, clusters vibrate with high energy and light vibrations. So, clusters are good for raising the vibrations in an environment and bringing light and energy into that space.quartz crystal clusterBecause they are working so hard to keep the vibrations up in an environment, you need to remember to cleanse and charge your clusters frequently. This is especially true if there has been a lot of negative energy in the space (a fight or bickering between family members or tensions in an office between coworkers, for example).

Because they are so beautiful it is easy to forget they are working to uplift, energize and harmonize our environment. This is another reason we need to be mindful and cleanse and charge our cluster friends regularly. (Here is a link to cleansing and charging in case you missed that post or need a refresher.)

This has been a short re-visit. To me, clusters are one of the easiest configurations to remember what they do, so they don’t need much discussion to get that point across. Here’s a brief summary:

  • Clusters consist of crystal points growing together on a matrix.
  • They come in a variety of types, sizes and configurations.
  • Clusters may break from the matrix during their life-cycle and reform, growing new clusters, with or without matrix.
  • With a few exceptions, the points (crystals which aren’t part of a cluster) with which we are familiar, originated as a part of a cluster.
  • Clusters are good for raising the vibrations in an environment and bringing light and energy into that space, and
  • They are good for helping with group dynamics.

I hope you have enjoyed this discussion about quartz crystal Clusters; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with them. Next time we’ll discuss Curved quartz crystals.
