    Tangerine Quartz: Meaning, Metaphysical & Healing Properties

    Tangerine Quartz is a beautiful quartz formation where moisture and surrounding hematite, which is an iron oxide, create a rusty tangerine-colored coating that's encrusted on the surface of the quartz. Associated with the 2nd chakra (sacral chakra), tangerine quartz is a crystal of creativity, playfulness and sexuality.
