A brief history of gemstones
Healing stones, crystals and semi-precious gemstones come from the earth. Created from the magma of earth's inner core, stones have gone through a geological process of heating, cooling and displacement on their way to their present form.
Crystals are amongst the physical structures that have the most balanced, cohesive and strong frequencies. They are used for healing, meditation, energy work, storing information, protection, grounding, and channeling. They vibrate to different frequencies depending on the crystal, its size and use.
A magical and symbiotic connection has always existed between human beings and gems. Evidence of gemstones used for healing has been found as far back as the fourth millennium before Christ. Ancient civilizations such as the Chinese, Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks, Romans, or Shamans and Medicine Men have used gemstones for healing in multiple ways - made into powders or elixirs, worn, carried or placed on the body and in ceremonies or rituals. This ancient knowledge has been passed down to our day and with the emerging popularity of holistic health and healing, the use of gemstones is again making its way into modern life.
Crystals are part of the earth itself and of nature. They are comprised of quartz and silica, which are also a major component of the human body. Crystals also emit a vibrational frequency, which matches the electromagnetic field of both the earth and its human occupants. The most widely used crystal today is clear quartz and it can be found powering watches, computers and radios to name a few.
