A scepter quartz is a large central rod around one end of which another crystal formed. It is a very special stone. Used as a meditation tool it links into the wisdom of the ages and facilitates chaneling high vibrations. Generating and amplifying energy, scepter quartz is an excellent healing tool, as it directs healing to the core of a problem or to the center of the subtle bodies. Disease is dissolved and the energies restructured at the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual levels of being as appropriate. It is particularly useful when energy has to be transmitted in a specific direction.
Legend has it that these stones were used as a symbol of spiritual authority in Atlantis and Lemuria and that they have been reemerged to bring crystal power to the present day. A natural lingam, they can be used for fertility problems and to balance male and female energies.
Scepter quartz is also available in a smaller form in which the quartz rod has a distinctive ridge and wider top, and as a reversed scepter in which a small crystal or opaque point emerges from a larger base stone. Reversed quartz scepters transmit healing energy, cleanse it, and then return it to the healer. They free the mind from false illusions and bring it to a point of stillness.
