what is phantom quartz ?

Phantom Quartz is a type of Quartz that exhibits the rare ability to be both transparent and opaque. This is called dichroism and it’s a special property of Phantom Quartz. Dichroism occurs when light waves from one direction pass through a crystal, but another set of light waves pass through the crystal at the same time and interfere with one another, creating a visual effect that appears to be two different crystals in one. The dichroic effect can create shades of green, blue, purple, orange and even pink. When viewed from certain angles, the entire crystal appears transparent or translucent. The effect can also be created by placing Phantom Quartz in front of a strong background light. Some people refer to this property as “ghosting” because it creates the appearance of a ghost like appearance or veil over the entire crystal. Even though this faceted quartz is transparent on some levels, it is still considered to be a crystal as it has all the other properties that make up a true Crystal: hardness, luster, color and clarity.

In the metaphysical world, a Phantom Quartz is considered as an example where despite a life-changing event that took place in its growth, the crystal grew past that event. This is perhaps an example for all of us that no event that happened in our life should stop us from growing.
