Harlequin Quartz has also been called Fire Quartz, Hematoid Quartz, and Ferruginous Quartz which all include the red iron oxide, usually Hematite. Harlequin Quartz displays the tiny red or silver-black “sparkles”. These are Hematite and/or Goethite. Many sellers will list that the inclusions are Lepidocrocite, but this is incorrect. [Quote from Mindat: The red inclusions in many quartz crystals, often labelled by sellers as “lepidocrocite”, are in fact normally hematite. We are unaware of any analytically confirmed red translucent scaly lepidocrocite as inclusions in quartz crystals.]

★ Metaphysical Properties and Mystic Lore: Harlequin has a lovely dancing energy! It is essentially Clear Quartz filled with tiny flecks of both red/scarlet and silver inclusions of Hematite and Goethite. It stimulates the energy flow between all of your Chakras, combining the energy of your Base with your Heart and Crown. It stimulates the qualities of your Heart and the associated attributes of loving kindness. It provides enthusiasm and dedication when working towards a chosen goal with good humor and integrity.
