Used for introspection it helps one find and identify emotional blocks and limiting thoughts by facilitating a better understanding of "the shadow" as referred to by Carl Jung. Known as a light bringer crystal it brings hope and comfort where there was unhappiness, hopelessness and pain. Said to resonate best with the heart chakra, Candle Quartz can help heal hurts, balance energies and encourage opening to the possibility of love.
