“Crystal” comes from the Greek Crystollys which means Holy Ice. Crystals have been recognised throughout history for their protective, healing and rejuvenating properties. There are numerous accounts of this in ancient texts including the bible. Humanity has always been drawn to gems and crystals since times of Lemuria and Atlantis as they recognised their mysterious healing powers.
Crystals are natural solids which have formed deep within the earth’s crust and people have different ideas of how they work.
Some say it is their piezoelectric effect (the ability of crystals to generate a voltage in response to mechanical stress) and pyroelectric effect (the ability to generate an electrical potential in response to a temperature change).
Others believe by setting an intent and focus on the power within the crystal this creates a healing result.
However, there currently is no scientific proof that crystals can heal or cure disease, but they have been found to emenate a vibraton and light with both piezoelectric and pyroelectric effects which we benefit from in the use of watches, lasers, computers and many other house hold items.
Crystals are conduits of energy; they can store, focus, transmit and transmute energy. These qualities are beneficial when used in healing. Crystals can bring peace, equilibrium and well being to all.
