Phantom quartz is the appearance of a shadowy substance inside a clear quartz stone. It can also be found in smokey quartz, amethyst and rose quartz. The grayish phantom can be made of hematite, chlorite, milky quartz, smoky quartz and amethyst. Often referred to as ghost quartz, spectre crystals or shadow quartz, Phantom Quartz can help us to recognize, face and deal with our shadow selves -- that part of our selves that we're often reluctant to own up to. Phantom Quartz helps us to face our innermost fears, our dark side if you will, and use this realization to transform through and to a better part of ourselves. They are excellent stones to work with to help with repressed memories and also work to help with recalling past lives. Phantom Quartz is a healing stone and can help bring rest, reflection and awareness as to the reason for the the illness.
