Opalescent Rose Quartz emits a soothing energy that eases anger and helps bring a sense of calm. Opalescent rose quartz may also still the mind and aid in stress relief. Some believe that enhanced rose quartz may also have the same properties as regular rose quartz, but more powerful.
Enhanced quartz pieces, such as opalescent quartz and opalescent rose quartz, also have the same properties as regular quartz, except they are often more powerful. Quartz can receive, activate, store, transmit and amplify energy. It is also said to be an emotional balancer as it dispels negativity. It is the stone used most often for mediation.
Opalescent rose quartz is one of the most unusual and rare mineral specimens as it is created with the help of the rare metal platinum. To start, the highest grade rose quartz crystals are selected. These are then treated with platinum. This treatment is done via an electrostatic process whereby the crystals are put into a vacuum and charged opposite the silver. Heat is applied. The platinum is then put into the vacuum and it "clings" to the crystals.
The crystals are then turned over and the process is repeated, so that all areas of the crystals are covered. The platinum, when charged and treated in a vacuum environment, will combine with the quartz and produce subtle changes with the color of the quartz. The quartz will appear to have a slight flash or a soft pastel iridescent glow to it.
Due to the rising cost of platinum, these pieces are no longer being made, and you won't find them anywhere else!
In single terminated crystals, the energy is directed from the base (bottom) and out the top (termination). Based on the growth pattern, double terminated crystals don’t have a base or bottom as such, and the energy may be directed both ways. Double terminated points send as well as receive energy, so they promote psychic ability and dream recall. They are also used for balance.
