Over 100 million years ago, a meteorite strike hit a remote area in Quebec, Canada. But, it was only in 1969 that Canadian sub-atomic physicists, John-William Manconi, discovered that the quartz in this specific place was special. You see, having been impacted by the meteorite strike, it seems this quartz was 100 times more effective at absorbing energy than regular quartz. So, since crystals were known to help with pain relief, Manconi decided to test it.
He wanted to know if this super-quartz could absorb pain waves better than other treatments.
The result? It could, and it did.
