Fairy Wand Quartz can also be called Spirit Quartz and Fairy Wand Amethyst, although some rock hounds may find differences among these stones. The crystals are found in Mexico and are named for the delicacy and fanciful forms in which the crystals appear.

Some metaphysical sources say these stones are relaxing and help you feel more peaceful when held. If you’re interested in such things and are sensitive, these crystals can help you connect to fairies and guardian angels, beings who are loving and beneficent. When you hold such a stone, let your imagination wander and see what happens. Don’t be surprised if you feel a sudden breeze or soft wings around you!

Some places to find crystals and other beautiful and unusual stones might be your local gem and rockhound club, a new age store, some health food stores, and by searching on the Internet.
