I'll admit to not really equipping it when I first played; didn't really understand what it did. Then again, I don't really remember if I even obtained it on my first playthrough, so who knows, lol. I doubt I would have equipped it on my first time through anyway. Now, though, I know better.

As to your question on what it does, that's simple; it grants you both the "Attack Up" and "Defense Up" statuses automatically in each battle, which means all your attacks will do 1.5x as much damage as they would normally, and that you will take 0.5x as much damage from enemies.

It also grants you immunity to any "instant death" attack used by enemies (example: Jinx's Silver Bullet attack), which is quite nice.

Also know that the move "Shredder" cancels the 1.5x boosts, rendering the Quartz Charm useless. Culex and Smithy are the only enemies that use Shredder though, so not a big deal.

^Shredder doesn't cancel Red Essence. In fact, if a character under the influence of Red Essence has Attack Up/Defense Up status, Red Essence prevents Shredder from getting rid of the boosts. I can say this for certain as I generally fight Culex with a party of Mario, Mallow, and Geno, and make with boosting Mallow's stats and giving him a Red Essence, and Shredder never once had any effect on him.

I use the Quartz Charm all the time. I seem to get better attack power with it than I do with the Attack Scarf, for some reason.

The Quartz charm increase 50% while the Attack scarf only gives 30 attack.
