Crystal Healing - Science or Magic?

Quartz crystals have been used in healing and ritual throughout history. One of the seven precious substances of Buddhism, set in the breastplate of the Hebrew high priest in the Bible, power stone of shaman and brain cells of Grandmother Earth to Native Americans. In the oldest writings on earth, the Sanskrit literature’s of ancient India, quartz crystals are named Bhisma-Ratna, the gem that removes fear.

The Indian sages, Native Americans, Aztecs, Celts, Egyptians and many other ancients did not use quartz crystals because they were foolish primitives, but because they knew of the existence of gross, subtle and spiritual energies.

From the complexities of quantum mechanics to the simple beauty of Kirlian photography, the existence of "subtle" energy (imperceptible to the 5 senses - like radio waves), is no longer in question.

Although it will undoubtedly take time to be accepted by the established medical community, alternative therapists from many fields have recognized that without restoring a person's subtle energy system, optimum health is not possible. Much has been written about how crystals, especially quartz, can improve human health, but the primary benefit is often missed.


Sunshine warms things, water wets things and crystals structure things. It's just what they do.


Veda-Vyasa
Structured-Water
Quartz embodies an architectural and mathematical perfection based on the golden proportion, phi, Ф... Just like the Great Pyramids. The tips of all quartz crystals are angled exactly like the Great Pyramid at 360/7 or 5l.43 degrees.

Well documented preservative and razor blade sharpening properties hint at the restorative and "realigning" capabilities this form possess. Because these properties are manifest from an archetypal level (i.e. from the natural archetype of Ф, how they manifest on this plane may not be obvious.


Harmony makes small things grow. Lack of it makes great things decay. Sallust, Roman historian and politician, 86 - 34 BCE.

The electronics industry does not use quartz because it is pretty, but because it structures energy precisely, in is this case, electricity. The natural tendency of quartz is for harmony.

There was no problem with the choice of a timing element. The quartz crystal is possibly thousands of times better for timing than the tuning fork, and quartz crystals had been around for many years. Only the type and the frequency of the crystal needed to be chosen. Quartz worked perfectly, in fitting with the Greek archetype of "sixness", the Hexad. The only difficulty was in the selection of the integrated circuit technology that would function at sufficiently low power.

Restructuring the physical and subtle bodies, usually needed due to everything from the air we breathe to the water we drink, is now recognized in many alternative therapies as a prerequisite for optimal health. The University of Georgia found that in every human body, all diseased cells (no matter what the disease), were surrounded by what is called "unstructured" water. And they also found that every healthy cell was surrounded by structured water.

Quartz structures water and other energies naturally, as well as amplifying those energies by the principle of resonance. Kirlian photography has shown that merely holding double terminated quartz crystal can double the measurable electromagnetic fields of the body.

The most well-known example of the ability of quartz to structure energy is the humble quartz watch. In 1880 it was discovered that if you applied electricity to quartz, it vibrates. You might reasonably suggest that anyone would vibrate with a couple of electrodes stuck in them, but the difference with quartz is that it vibrates in a regular, consistent and harmonious pattern. So harmonious, you can tell the time by it. 

Quartz crystals have been in regular use for many years to give an accurate frequency for all radio transmitters, radio receivers and computers. Their accuracy comes from an amazing set of properties.

Quartz crystal oscillators (QCOs) are found commonly in microcontrollers, oscilloscopes, watches, and other consumer electronics. Just as the name implies, this component is usually made out of quartz crystal, which is both chemically and mechanically stable. It’s difficult to deform permanently without breaking, and doesn’t experience much in terms of hysteresis—when some force causes it to vibrate, it begins and stops quickly.

Quartz, silicon dioxide like most sand, is unaffected by most solvents and remains crystalline to hundreds of degrees Fahrenheit. The property that makes it an electronic miracle is the fact that, when compressed or bent, it generates a charge or voltage on its surface. This is a fairly common phenomenon called the piezoelectric effect. In the same way, if a voltage is applied, quartz will bend or change its shape very slightly.

If a bell were shaped out of a single crystal of quartz, it would ring for minutes after being tapped. Almost no energy is lost in the material. A quartz bell, if shaped in the right direction to the crystalline axis, will have an oscillating voltage on its surface, and the rate of oscillation is unaffected by temperature. If the surface voltage on the crystal is picked off with plated electrodes and amplified by a transistor or integrated circuit, it can be re-applied to the bell to keep it ringing.

Crystal Healing

A quartz bell could be made, but it is not the best shape as too much energy is coupled to the air. The best shapes are a straight bar or a disk. Interestingly, nature went for the straight bar. A bar has the advantage of keeping the same frequency provided the ratio of length to width remains the same. A quartz bar can be tiny and oscillate at a relatively low frequency, 32 kilohertz (KHz) is usually chosen for watches. 

Modern quartz watches now use a low-frequency bar or tuning-fork-shaped crystal. Often, these crystals are made from thin sheets of quartz plated like an integrated circuit and etched chemically to shape. The major difference between good and poor timekeeping is the initial frequency accuracy and precision of the angle of cut of the quartz. Think of this in terms of sacred geometry. 

If quartz can organize energy simply by contacting it, it is not difficult to begin to understand their influence on our health and minds. At a time when the necessity of energy treatments is increasingly recognized, it is the very basis of naturopathy itself, to accept that Nature did it first and best. 


Human ingenuity may make various inventions - but it will never devise any inventions more beautiful, nor more simple, nor more to the purpose than Nature does because in her inventions, nothing is wanting and nothing superfluous.Leonardo Da Vinci

Crystal healing

Pseudoscientific alternative medicine techniques employs stones and crystals

Quartzcrystals are often used in crystal healing.

Crystal healing is a pseudoscientificalternative-medicine practice that uses semiprecious stones and crystals such as quartz, agate, amethyst or opals. Adherents of the practice claim that these have healing powers, but there is no scientific basis for this claim.[1][2][3] Practitioners of crystal healing believe they can boost low energy, prevent bad energy, release blocked energy, and transform a body's aura.[4]

In one method, the practitioner places crystals on different parts of the body, often corresponding to chakras; or else the practitioner places crystals around the body in an attempt to construct an energy grid, which is purported to surround the client with healing energy. Scientific investigations have found no evidence that such "energy grids" actually exist, and there is no evidence that crystal healing has any greater effect upon the body than any other placebo.

While the practice is popular, it fosters commercial demand for crystals, which can result in environmental damage and exploitative child labor to mine the crystals.[5]

History[edit]

Origins[edit]

In Plato's account of Atlantis, crystal healing is also mentioned. According to Plato the Atlanteans used crystals to read minds and transmit thoughts.[6] The first historical documentation of crystals originated from the Ancient Sumerians (c. 4500 to c. 2000 BC). The Sumerians used crystals in their magical formulas.[7][8]

Writings dating back as far as 400 BC make observations about the powers different crystals were believed to emit.[9] Often if a negative incident occurred a specific stone would be used in an attempt to counteract the negative effect.[9] This was done by wearing amulets or other talismans around the neck with specific stones.[9]

The origins of crystal healing is tied to Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, India, Ancient Greece, or Ancient Rome.[9]

Ancient Egyptians mined for crystals and used them to make jewelry. Crystals or gemstones were also used in practice, for their metaphysical properties. Specifically, they used crystals as aids for health and protection. They often would bury a lapis lazuliscarab with their deceased, with the belief that it would protect them in the afterlife.[10] Additionally, in Ancient Egypt amulets were used to ensure the well-being of the individual.[11] The amulet's shape, decoration, inscription, color, material, or ritual performed with the amulet dictated its power.[11] Amulets were worn or placed on the body, in the form of stones, piercings, rings, necklaces, or other jewelry.[11] The Egyptians used amulets to benefit their afterlife, often representing an Egyptian deity and their specific powers. Amulets were also placed on mummys or in between the mummy's bandages, with funerary pieces usually being larger than those worn by the living.[11] In funeral practices they also used headrest amulets, these were full-size headrests placed in tombs to protect the dead, they also symbolized the deceased rising and being revived, and the sun rising between two hills, which symbolized resurrection and rebirth.[11]

The Ancient Greeks assigned a multitude of properties to crystals. The word 'crystal' is derived from the Greek word "krýstallos" which translates to "ice".[12] The Ancient Greeks believed that clear quartz crystals were a water that had frozen to the point where it would remain in its solid form.[13] The word "amethyst" in Ancient Greek language means "not intoxicate." Amethyst was worn as an amulet that they believed would aid hangovers or prevent intoxication.[10]

Precious stones have been thought of as objects that can aid in healing—in a practice known as lapidary medicine—by a variety of cultures.[14] The Hopi Native Americans of Arizona use quartz crystals to assist in diagnosing illnesses.[15] Both Pliny the Elder and Galen claimed that certain crystals had medicinal properties. In Europe, the belief in the healing powers of crystals (and in particular crystal amulets) persisted into the Middle Ages.[16][17] The alleged medicinal properties of precious stones, as well as other powers they were believed to hold, were collected in texts known as lapidaries, which remained popular in Medieval and Early Modern Europe until the 17th century.

Across cultures, different stones can symbolize or provide aide for different things. An example of this is rose quartz. In Egypt, it was believed rose quartz could prevent aging, but the Romans used rose quartz as a seal to signify ownership, while in the Middle Ages it was used in healing potions, today rose quartz is known as the "love stone" and is used to balance emotions, and heal anger and disappointment.[18]

Introduction to the New Age movement[edit]

New-age crystal healing ties to three cultures, British, Indian, and Native American.[9] British culture has a Pagan history which has inspired many people who practice modern-day witchcraft.[9] Indian culture uses crystal healing as a form of holistic healing and is written in the holy texts of Indian culture.[9]

New-age healing in the Western world has ties to the British, and more specifically paganism.[9] While many people may not want to practice animal sacrifice, modern practices have simplified many ancient rituals and practices, making them more available, and attractive to those in Western society.[9] Western astrology is also used with crystals, and ties into modern paganism.[9] Practitioners believe certain stones align with and share properties with certain planets.[9] Using astrological birth charts someone may also use types of stones that are compatible with their star signs.[9]

In the Vedic texts of Hinduism, specifically the Garuda Purana and Graha-gocara, there is a lot of information about the importance of crystals in Indian culture.[9] In these texts Hindu Demigods trick the Vedic demon Vala into attending a pretend sacrifice ritual and after allowing himself to be tied to a stake, Vala learns the demigods are not pretending and the Demigods dismember Vala, whose body parts turn into gem seeds which contain talismanic powers, made more powerful the purer the gem.[9] Vedic crystal practices is still alive in modern India and are used by both the older and younger generations.[9]

Tibetan refugees practicing Buddhism used crystals in meditation as malas, or prayer beads and many other people in Indian culture still use crystal healing when modern medicine does not work or is unattainable.[9]

Native American culture and crystal healing have been passed down through generations through word of mouth, due to this many traditions and secrets have been lost due to the extinction of many indigenous languages.[9] In native cultures there are two important principals when it comes to crystal healing, meditation, and respect. Meditation varies from person to person but usually includes good thoughts and a healthy mindset when handling crystals.[9] In Native American culture crystals are considered an entity and you must show respect to the stones, you can also show respect to the crystals through respect of the Earth.[9] In native traditions they can use the crystals by wearing them to benefit from healing vibrations, either one at a time or several but the stones should never touch, or tinctures can be made with the stone and water and then administered internally.[9]

Contemporary use[edit]

New Age[edit]

In the English speaking world, crystal healing is heavily associated with the New Age spiritual movement: "the middle-class New Age healing activity par excellence".[14] In contrast with other forms of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), participants in crystal healing view the practice as "individuated",[19] that is dependent on extreme personalization and creative expression.[14][20] Practitioners of crystal healing purport that certain physical properties such as shape, color, and markings, determine the ailments that a stone can heal; lists of such links are published in commonly distributed texts.[20] Paradoxically, practitioners also "hold the view that crystals have no intrinsic qualities but that, instead, their quality changes according to both" participants.[20] After selecting the stones by color or their believed metaphysical qualities, they place them on parts of the body.[1] Color selection and placement of stones are done according to concepts of grounding, chakras, or energy grids.

Crystal healing today is often featured in jewelry and is used side by side with yoga, meditation, or mindfulness.[9] Often people turn to crystal healing when they become dissatisfied with modern medicine and people are looking to revive cultural traditions from older generations.[9] Today the use of crystal healing is typically used by middle and upper-class individuals because they have the time and resources to seek out this type of alternative medicine. More affluent people are also able to afford better quality crystals.[9]

Use of crystals in the New Age movement[edit]

Sales and industry[edit]

Worldwide, retail sales of crystals were estimated to amount to more than US$1 billion per year in 2019.[5][21]

India, China, Brazil, and Madagascar are the main producers of crystals.[5] In Madagascar, one of the sources of crystals, most crystals are mined in unsafe, non-industrial or "homemade" mines, with parents and children working together to dig crystals from pits and tunnels they dig with shovels.[5] The miners are usually paid between 17 and 23 cents per kilogram for rose quartz (less than a penny per ounce).[5] The miner's income may be just 0.1% of the final retail price.[5] Some people in the industry say that the low pay for miners is because customers in developed countries want low retail prices; others say that it is due to shops in developed countries wanting to be more profitable.[5][21]

Scientific evaluation[edit]

There is no peer-reviewed scientific evidence that crystal healing has any effect; it is considered a pseudoscience.[1][22] Alleged successes of crystal healing can be attributed to the placebo effect.[3][22] Furthermore, there is no scientific basis for the concepts of chakras, being "blocked", energy grids requiring grounding, or other such terms; they are widely understood to be nothing more than terms used by adherents to lend credibility to their practices. Energy, as a scientific term, is a very well-defined concept that is readily measurable and bears little resemblance to the esoteric concept of energy used by proponents of crystal healing.[23]

In 1999, researchers French and Williams conducted a study to investigate the power of crystals compared with a placebo. Eighty volunteers were asked to meditate with either a quartz crystal, or a placebo stone which was indistinguishable from quartz. Many of the participants reported feeling typical "crystal effects"; however, this was irrespective of whether the crystals were real or placebo. In 2001 Christopher French, head of the anomalistic psychology research unit at the University of London and colleagues from Goldsmiths College outlined their study of crystal healing at the British Psychological Society Centenary Annual Conference, concluding: "There is no evidence that crystal healing works over and above a placebo effect."[3]

Crystal healing effects could also be attributed to cognitive bias (which occurs when the believers want the practice to be true and see only things that back up that desire).[24]

Crystal healing techniques are also practiced on animals, although some veterinary organizations, such as the British Veterinary Association, have warned that these methods are not scientifically proven and state that people should seek the advice of a vet before using alternative techniques.[25]

Crystal healing proponents and 5G conspiracy theorists have falsely alleged the pseudoscientific and misinformational belief that shungite may absorb 5G radiation.[26][27][28][29][30]

First Nations Crystal Healing

From Chapter 11: Using Crystals to Help and Heal

There are many ways crystals and stones can be used for healing and making life more interesting. They are the most organized beings in the universe because of their molecular structure. They are near permanent beings as they maintain their incarnation as the beautiful flowers of the mineral world for millennia upon millennia. As they maintain for very long periods of time their organized structure transforming and amplifying all types of energy, they have fascinated mankind from the beginning of our existence upon this planet. Thus, they evoke by their sheer beauty and eternal presence great treasures of the mind and spirit. These are the attributes that make crystals so interesting to work with. They will always remain firm and steady in their faithfulness to incarnate the life mission creation has bestowed upon them. Once you have a crystal friend, it is a crystal friend forever.

Energy follows thought, the ultimate creator of all things. It is said that we are in a dream, the Great Spirit’s dream. It is through the thoughts of Great Spirit that the universe is created. The circumstances and accomplishments we manifest in life always begin as a thought. It is this energy, the energy of thought nourished by our empathy and compassion and then oriented according to a specific ray of the crystal prism that can be amplified and channeled through the programmed crystal.

As far as the practical aspects of working with crystals in a healing mode are concerned there are many ways that they can be used in therapy.

The easiest one and probably a pleasurable and fun way to work with them is to wear them as jewelry. A cut stone has the same properties as a natural stone. But when they are cut, faceted and polished to be used as jewelry, they can be even more beautiful. The metal, gold, silver or platinum upon which they are fixed will amplify or spread out their energy. They become a way to integrate the energies of the stone on a daily basis. We can wear them when we are seeking healing or in circumstances when we are looking to amplify a specific intention.

It’s important that only noble metals be used, as mentioned silver, gold or platinum. Sometimes copper and bronze are used but they have a tendency to oxidize and the color may change. Gold, silver and platinum will not be affected when they are purified in salty water. If you are working with a piece of jewelry that is only coated with a noble metal, the underlying metal alloy may react to the water and the salt. It might rust or lose its shine. Noble metals like silver, gold and platinum also have specific energies. Gold being a very solar energy and silver being a lunar energy. Platinum has been associated with Neptune, Venus and with Mercury. These are very different planets in their energy but what must be retained here is that platinum is a recently discovered metal and has not been associated as much in astrology as have the other metals. It’s the most precious metal used in jewelry and as such, if it can be afforded, is more neutral than gold or silver.

Of course, you need to purify the piece of jewelry for a whole week before using it and it is better to encode or program that crystal. We need to give a specific intention or orientation to the crystal, for it to do its work properly. This is one of the secrets of healing that we will study in this book. A clear intention will orient the energy. We need to have the energy going in a specific direction to create balance. Balance, equilibrium is a state of harmony that is synonymous of health. When there is imbalance, disease, discomfort this is because we are not in harmony with the laws of the universe or that our soul’s needs that suffering to learn specific lessons such as control over one’s body and mind or humility.

All stones that are hard enough to be worn without danger of breaking upon small impacts can be used in jewelry. Depending on the type of work it is doing, you will want to purify more or less often. If the healing work to be done is important and urgent, it should be purified every time it is used. If it is only there to produce a specific energy related to your work, it can be purified once a week. You also need to tune in to the life of that piece of jewelry and that stone, as every stone has a personality, to feel the moment when it needs purification. This will come in time. The more you work with crystals the more your perceptions will be accurate in perceiving what the crystal needs. The more you work with energy the more you will become proficient in perceiving different types of energy.

The first energy field around the human body is called the etheric web. This energy field will call upon the energy of the piece of jewelry to bring it to where it is intended. Thus, it is not necessary to wear the piece of jewelry over the specific problem. If you are using peridot to work with your pancreas, you can still wear the peridot on your finger or around your neck. The etheric web will bring that energy where it is needed.

There are colored stones that can create a powerful synergy. The metal of that piece of jewelry will combine the energy of different stones together. Thus, several stones can be used on the same piece of jewelry if they are compatible. Some colors will cancel each other out. For example, wearing red and green together doesn’t work. The two colors cancel each other out. The principles here are quite simple. You can wear two adjacent colors. The order of the rainbow is where you can distinguish adjacent colors. Red, yellow, orange, green, blue, indigo, violet, red and so on and so forth. Thus, red can go with yellow and the violet, yellow can go with red or orange, green can go with orange or blue, blue can go with green or indigo, violet can go with red or indigo and so on and so forth. You can amplify any colored stone with a transparent clear crystal stone. This is the most common use we see. For example, you can have an emerald with tiny zircons or diamonds around it, all these clear stones will amplify the effect of the green emerald. Black or white stones should not be combined with colored gems. Use your intuition and then verify your choice with the person for whom you are preparing the combination. For example, kinesiology or dowsing can be effective testing methods. You can wear different types of jewelry at the same time as long as you avoid them touching each other if you have rings on your fingers skip a finger so they don’t touch each other. It’s the same principle that we use when we wrap all the crystals individually in red cloth. They can exchange energy if they are touching. If you have colored stones that are not compatible, they will cancel each other out if the metal of their piece of jewelry is touching.

Another way of benefiting from the energy crystal or stone is to carry a small polished piece on us or in a small pouch. It is better to use a polished or tumbled stone as a raw stone may be abrasive to our clothing and poke holes in our pockets. Multifaceted, polished or tumbled stones all have the same energy as the uncut stone. Only rarely does a stone lose its sheen when it is polished. Those who cut stones know this, they will say that the stone has died or has lost its water. This is a rare occurrence. In general a stone that is cut and polished will retain all of its energy and sheen. You can benefit from the specific vibration of a particular crystal by carrying it on you--in your pocket, for example. However, you must avoid any contact between the crystal and any coins, since they have been touched by many other people. A small pouch can come in useful, either slipped inside a pocket or pinned on to your clothes.

Another way of working with the power of the stone is to program a clear quartz crystal that we carry in the pouch to the specific energy that we need. You see, a quartz crystal being clear and very harmonious to the energies of the human body, can be programmed with the energy of any stone we wish. This is really practical. With a well-prepared clear quartz crystal, you have the potential of having all the different semi-precious and precious stones that you wish to work with. You can program your quartz crystal as an emerald or as a ruby or as a sapphire. You can then purify the crystal and program it with the vibration of another stone. Of course, before doing this, you will want to have a clear sense and feeling of the energy of the specific stone you want to work with. So, at some point in time you do need to meditate a bit with the real stone. But you don’t need to own it. You can borrow it or take time in the gem and mineral show to sit awhile with the crystal that you borrow from a vendor or from a friend. Once you have really felt the energy of a specific stone and it has been integrated into your mind then you will be able to program your quartz crystal with any mineral energy you wish to work with.

Another way of working with the crystal is simply to visualize that stone and its energy. Your mind is what is doing the work. The crystal is only amplifying your energies and thoughts. The real battery from which brings forth the energy for healing comes from the mind. The crystal is only there to orient, amplify or transform the energies with which you want to work. Thus, you can visualize in your mind’s eye the aspects, beauty and energy of a specific crystal and let that image infuse your being. When you have worked long enough in cultivating yourself through meditation, your thoughts are well focused. You can maintain concentration and thus send a specific crystal energy to another person with precision.

Here is a teaching story to illustrate this practice. I was once approached by a journalist who wanted to write an article on my work in a French magazine in the Quebec Province. Our interview went well and she wrote a nice article. When she presented the article to the editor of the magazine, he was not satisfied with it and he wanted to change so many things in her article that she just could not support it and felt a lot of anger around this issue. As she was speaking of this on the phone I could clearly feel that there was a personality conflict between the two. Aquamarine is the stone of choice to harmonize human relationships. I went into my meditation space and I visualized these two people enclosed in a huge aquamarine crystal conversing well with each other and reaching an agreement. A week later the journalist called me and said that she had had a meeting with her editor and they had arrived at a compromise that fit her needs. The article was published.

Crystals In Ancient History

Introduction

Although no longer in use medicinally, gemstones continued to hold meaning. Until recently, jet was popularly worn by those in mourning, and garnet was often worn in times of war. There is a tradition in a local family here in southwest England: every female descendent wears an antique moonstone necklace for her wedding, which has been in the family for generations. It was only recently that one family member realised this was a fertility symbol.

Many tribal cultures have continued the use of gemstones in healing until very recently, if not through to the present day. The Zuni tribe in New Mexico make stone fetishes, which represent animal spirits. These were ceremonially 'fed' on powdered turquoise and ground maize. Beautiful inlaid fetishes are still made to sell, and are very collectable artefacts or sculptures, although the spiritual practise surrounding them is no longer much in use. Other Native American tribes still hold precious stones, especially turquoise, sacred. Both Aborigines and Maoris have traditions regarding stones and healing or spiritual practise, some of which they share with the rest of the world, while some knowledge still kept private within their communities.

It is interesting to note that there are many examples of gemstones meaning similar things to different cultures, even when there has been absolutely no interaction between these cultures, and no opportunity for crossover. Jade was considered to be a kidney healing stone by the ancient Chinese, and also Aztec and Mayan civilisations, turquoise has been worn to give strength and health all over the world, and jaspers have almost always conferred both strength and calm.

History healing native crystal american

In a crystal, we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being.”  – Nikola Tesla, Serbian-American inventor, electrical & mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist, The Problem of Increasing Human Energy, 1900.

For thousands of years, precious and semi-precious gemstones have been utilized for mental, physical and spiritual healing. Utilized as an additional technique along with more traditional medical practices, crystals, and other stones have been used to cure ailments, protect against illness, disease, and injury; provide mental balance and stability, and for spiritual purposes.

Proponents in this alternative healing technique continue to believe that certain stones and crystals act as conduits for healing by allowing positive energies to flow from the stone to the body, while the body releases negative energy into the stones. At the turn of the century, Nikola Tesla, a renowned inventor, electrical & mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist, declared all things in the universe are forms of energy with their own frequency and vibration and proved how certain forms of energy can alter the vibrational resonance of other forms of energy. This is why many continue to believe in the power of crystals and other stones in healing practices.

Obviously, the ancients were not aware of this in any scientific basis, but, numerous cultures have long utilized stones in healing, protection, and spiritual practices.

The first historical references of the use of crystals come from Ancient Sumerians, who included crystals in magic formulas. Crystal use was also said to have been widespread on the legendary lost continent of Atlantis.

In Roman culture, talismans and amulets of crystal were known to have been used, most often for enhancing health, attracting desirable people or things, and for providing protection in battle.

The ancient Egyptians were known to have utilized crystals in many ways, including burying their dead with crystals, carrying and wearing crystal jewelry for health, protection, well being, to attract love, foster sex appeal, and more. They were known to have used lapis lazuli, turquoise, carnelian, emerald, clear quartz, topaz, and peridot in amulets and jewelry.

In Greece, stones have been utilized in various ways so extensively, that some of the mineral names are of Greek origin. In fact, the word crystal comes from the Greek word for ice, as the ancients regarded crystal as pure water that had frozen so deeply that it would always remain solid. In ancient times, the Greeks often rubbed hematite upon soldier’s bodies prior to entering battle with the idea that it made them invincible. Hematite, an iron ore, comes from the word for blood, and the ancient Greeks associated iron with Aries, the god of war. The word amethyst means ‘not drunken’ and was worn as an amulet to prevent both drunkenness and hangovers. Greek sailors wore a variety of amulets to keep them safe at sea.

In India, crystals have long been seen as valuable for healing emotional and metaphysical imbalances. In Hinduism, the Kalpa tree, or wish-granting tree, is made out of crystals and precious stones. The use of healing crystals is documented within the Hindu Vedas, a large body of ancient text, which references numerous stones and their healing abilities such as sapphires that are thought to bring astuteness, clarity, and mental balance, while jasper is said to bring harmony, sexual vitality, and balance.

Stones and crystals were also used in Asia with the Chinese incorporating crystal in various healing sessions including acupuncture with crystal-tipped needles. Jade has been highly valued in China since ancient times, known to have been used since before 3000 BC. The stone was incorporated into numerous items including beads, chimes, ornamental decorations, musical instruments, and even armor. The Chinese considered Jade to have strong healing properties for kidneys and was considered a stone of concentrated love essence. In Japan fortune telling with crystal spheres was common.

Elsewhere, the Maoris of New Zealand wore jade pendants representing the ancestor spirits, and continue to believe that the stone is lucky. In the Americas, Jade was recognized as a kidney healing stone in South America and jade masks were utilized in burials in Mexico. The Zuni tribe in New Mexico have long made stone fetishes, representing various animal spirits. Other Native American tribes still hold precious stones, especially turquoise, azurite and phenakite, sacred. All over the world, turquoise has been worn to give strength and health and jaspers have long been believed to provide strength and calm. Amber has been of the most widely used in talismans and amber beads have been discovered in Europe, dating back some 12 thousand years ago.

Today, this style of alternative healing is known as crystal therapy or crystal healing, and within this type of therapy, all stones — raw, natural, tumbled, polished, gemstones, etc — are referred to as crystals.
