A true Golden Healer is defined as a crystal or crystal cluster with an iron oxide coating under or in between layers of crystal. Colors will range from a pale, clear yellow to lemon to darker mustard. These crystals will have almost a greasy-like, transparent coating, which may show a surprising rainbow or two when turned under a light source.
Unlike Tangerine or Limonite stained Quartz, the color of the Golden Healer will not be affected by an acid bath due to the coating being “protected” by a thin layer or layers of crystal growth. In other words, this is not a crystal that has a dusting or stain on the outside, but instead, it is included within the crystalline growth. Golden Healers can be super clear to milky and dense.
Golden Healers are used when the need is to improve a person’s basic happiness, get them back on a track towards success, bring a sense of adventure, increase the person’s personal power, or build their enthusiasm or confidence.
Golden healer quartz is associated with the third (solar plexus) and eighth (above the head) chakras, all zodiac signs, and the sun. The energy it gives off is described as simultaneously “gently soothing” and “powerful.” In the metaphysical world, it is perhaps regarded first as a stone of success. It is believed to increase creativity and self-confidence and bring about success in business and other ventures. Aside from these benefits, it is also commonly worn in the form of jewelry or kept nearby because it is said to cleanse the soul and assist those involved in spiritual work, in that it can facilitate even long-distance spiritual communication (including between worlds), help one to discover his or her spiritual purpose, enhance all psychic abilities, and serve as a natural computer or “spiritual library,” storing information for access at a later date. These crystals with their Gold color offer restore spiritual energy that is out of balance.
