The Sacred Geometry of Chlorite in Quartz

Sacred Geometry is the science and recognition of the innate structure of form. The universe we know exists in ratios of geometry on an infinite scale, and all of its forms enfold the divine knowledge of universal laws.

In nature, we find patterns, designs and structures from the smallest particles to the incommensurable cosmos. These inevitably follow geometrical archetypes, which reveal to us the nature of each form and its vibrational resonances.

The name Chlorite was derived from the Greek word chloros, which means green. This is an allusion to its common color. Chlorite is actually a Silicate mineral.


Chlorite forms in tri-octahedral matrices at the atomic level.  The chemical formula of the mineral Chlorite is indicated by (Fe, Mg, Al)6(Si, Al)4O10(OH)8 or Iron Aluminum Magnesium Silicate Hydroxide.  Below is a 3-dimensional rendering.

 Mineral Chlorite is known to crystallize in the monoclinic system. The monoclinic system of crystal formation comprises crystals having three axes of unequal lengths. Two of which are usually found in a position that is oblique or not perpendicular to one another. However, both of which are commonly found perpendicular to the third axis.


The inclusions of mineral Chlorite in clear Quartz crystals is considered a particularly powerful enhancement.  When Chlorite is found as an inclusion, it is commonly exhibiting a very strong green color.

The tri-octahedral nature of Chlorite combined with the trigonal structure of Quartz crystal creates one of the most powerful healing minerals available.   The Octahedron represents the element of Air and is linked to the Heart Chakra, which is the center for love, compassion, growth and healing.

The self-reflecting shape of the Octahedron moves us into a higher vibration of reflection, compassion and healing. The resonant nature of  Chlorite, amplified within Quartz aligns one to the more spiritual nature of self and to the understanding and recognition of our true be-ing.

Metaphysical Properties

Green Chlorite in Quartz is a powerful healing combination.  The Quartz amplifies the purifying, detoxifying properties of the Chlorite making it one of the best crystals to use for physical cleansing.

Chlorite not only works with the physical body, but the auric body as well.  Chlorite will help to cleanse the aura, chakras and energy meridians.  Chlorite is a great piece to use when there is excessive anger or frustration, gently removing and dissipating the energy.

Chlorite in Quartz will help to resolve issues of the heart and remove blockages and resistance that will allow one to acknowledge, forgive, release, and move forward.  It is used to stimulate the state of inspiration and to further actualization.

Chlorite in Quartz is also a wonderful stone to use to cleanse the environment, a sacred space, or home/office.   With Quartz, Chlorite can help to clear negativity.  Creatively, they promote a state of inspired expectancy.  The energy that Chlorite brings to healing and the environment are extraordinarily positive.

The deep green of the Chlorite activates and cleanses the Heart Chakra.

Heart Chakra – 4th Chakra

Located near the center of the breastbone or sternum, this chakra represents higher consciousness and love. The Heart chakra is associated with the heart, thymus gland, lower lung and circulatory system.

The heart chakra acts as the balance point for all the chakras. It governs our relationships and how we interact with other people. A balanced heart chakra is expressed in acceptance of self and others, personal values and ethics, following one’s unique direction in life.

A balanced Heart Chakra means expansion, freedom and growth.

The color associated with the heart chakra is Green. Green symbolizes harmony, creativity, health, abundance and nature. It is the combining of yellow (soul) and blue (spirit). Green, nature’s color, offers new energy and revitalizes tired nerves.


Chlorite vibrates to the number 1.  The number 1 represents aspects of creation and self — genesis, original, creation,  self-determination, will power, independence, initiative, decisions,  leadership, command, courage, pioneer, daring, and the ability to stand on one’s own two feet.
