If you’re into stones, clear quartz was probably one of your first, and if you’ve never been into them, clear quartz is a good place to start. This versatile, basic gem has a million and one uses. Here’s a few ideas to make the most of it.

Place one near or on the resting place of a departed loved one. Instead of flowers, honor your loved one’s grave site with this simple, spiritual treasure.
