Titanium quartz is one of the most unusual and rare mineral specimens as it is created with the help of the rare metal titanium. To start, the highest grade quartz crystals are selected. These are then treated with titanium. This treatment is done via an electrostatic process whereby the crystals are put into a vacuum and charged opposite the titanium. Heat is applied. The titanium 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 titanium when charged and treated in a vacuum environment will combine with the quartz and changes the color of the quartz to a magnificent metallic color, sometimes with rainbow titanium and sometimes with a darker shade of blue.
Some believe 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 meditation. Titanium quartz can help enhance your clarity of thought and powers of observation, it has the same properties of regular quartz, except they are said to be more enhanced. It is said to increase enjoyment of life, dispel sadness, and awaken the energy centers of the body.
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.
