All You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About Quantum Quattro



Quantum Quattro is a combination of multiple minerals. Different sources state different combos, but the most prevalent is shattuckite, chrysocolla, dioptase and malachite. “Quantum” means 4 in Italian. It’s also believed to contain silicon dioxide and smoky quartz. And sometimes even ajoite, azurite and cuprite. Quantum Quattro comes from only one deposit on earth, in Namibia, Africa. It comes from an oxidation zone of copper deposits. Whether it includes some or all of the individual minerals previously mentioned, it still encompasses the properties and energies of them all, as they all grow together in the larger matrix that the smaller pieces are mined from. Also, as they are all copper included minerals, they play a key role in the bodies energy production. Copper is an essential mineral necessary for human survival. It plays a role in nerve cells and the immune system. All living organisms need copper.

All of these potent minerals are powerful in their own right, but the combination of them all together in Quantum Quattro truly makes for a powerhouse of master healing, working in synergy at higher and stronger vibrations. Each and every individual piece is truly unique.

Quantum Quattro first hit the gem arenas in 1996 and is considered a new energy stone that has been gifted to the world to assist in the healing of the entire planet. It’s also sometimes referred to as the “millennial stone”.

Quantum Quattro has a hardness of 7 on the MOHS scale.

This stone can and will align all energy bodies and all the chakras, both on the body and above and below it. But this stone is especially great to use when working with the earth star, heart, throat and third eye chakras. The smoky quartz matrix of this stone helps to ground the energies of all included minerals through the Earth Star chakra. It then cleanses and transmutes the negative energies. Through the heart, it allows one to acknowledge and release emotional patterns and emotional traumas held within ones cellular memory and DNA. It also aids in emotional healing and emotional balance. It’s an amazing physical healer as it is an immune system builder that works within ones DNA structure and on a cellular level to repolarize and magnetically open gateways to spirits direct healing light. It is also very helpful in healing past grief induced trauma that is trapped within the emotional energy field and inside the bodies cells, causing pain in both areas. Quantum Quattro helps one to release heartache held within, especially due to grief. It gives one emotional strength in times of prolonged strength.

Through the throat and third eye chakras, it helps with inner visions that one is able to understand issues in ones life and communicate feelings and inner truths with a heart centered awareness. Placing on the third eye will bring mental clarity and spiritual insight in angelic and earthly realms. It’s great for communication of all kinds, connecting with higher wisdom, and the higher realms.

Quantum Quattro is a detoxifier, a rejuvenator, and promotes overall wellness. It goes right to to root of health challenges to remedy it at its source. Also beneficial for PTSD symptoms. It’s also great for healing the pain of abandonment. It also draws out negative emotions such as guilt and reverses destructive emotional programming. Just place on the parts of the body affected and let it work it’s magick.

Quantum Quattro is also a very protective stone. It wards off any and all evil spells or ill wishes. This stone helps to clear attachments, blockages, cords, and karmic contracts. Helps you release anything that blocks your ability to create or receive wonderful things. It helps you to identify the behaviors and patterns that create problems in your life. It transforms negative energy into pure light. This is a truly versatile stone that can aid in any situation. It helps when we don’t know what to do next, as it indicates direction and teaches how to take responsibility for your actions, thoughts and feelings. Whenever you feel like something is off and you’re out of alignment, this stone will help correct the imbalance and promote a healthy and natural energy flow and spiritual activation. This stone aids in spiritual maturation as well. This all sounds wonderful to me! 

If you have read my column that spoke all about auralite 23 and Super 7, then you already are familiar with my obsessions with both. I am a huge fan of any stone that can multi-task and cover all my bases in one small piece. I was pleased to read that the recommended stone to pair with Quantum Quattro is my beloved Super 7. By pairing these two rockstars together, it is said to improve your emotional body and all your interpersonal relationships. It also enhances your physical and emotional health as well as gives one a greater sense of personal power and supports transformation.

Another very fascinating recommendation that I’ve seen in many sources, is to use quantum quattro in conjunction with the rays of the sun! It’s said to be the most effective when used between 12 noon and 2pm. During that window it will conjure the most influential healing power for its owner. In addition, if used between 3 and 5pm (regardless of sun) on the days of the full moon, new moon, and moonless nights, it will offer its owner it’s most strongest emotional healing.

To wrap it up….this stone is a kick ass master healing godsend. I can’t recommend higher that you acquire some of this love in a rock and work with it’s magick yourself. It’s rare I dedicate an entire column to one stone- but i truly felt called to share all about this truly life changing crystal with you all at the start of not only a new year, but a new decade!

Thank you for reading and I wish you all infinite blessings, prosperity, joy and love. Happy 2020!
