The beauty and power of crystals and other stones have long been recognized, from the ancient times of Tutankhamen to the modern masterpieces of Cartier and Faberge.
They have always been prized for their beauty and their healing and spiritual properties.
Healers, shamans, priests and spiritual seekers have used crystals for their special powers.
Crystal healing today continues to find new ways in which minerals can help us restore to balance our stressful lives.
Science has yet to determine what happens during crystal healing, but changes felt by the participants and the lasting benefits that can be gained are not diminished by this. A popular theory is that crystals actually vibrate at the same pitch as people, and can be used to relieve suffering because the resonance between the patient and the stone either combats the vibration of illness or amplifies those of health.
Traditional remedies, such as herbalism, homeopathy and crystal therapies, can be seen as natural alternatives for, or complementary with modern drugs. With the recent swing toward holistic and alternative medicine, many people are turning to crystals not only to help cure their ailments, but significantly, to maintain optimum health.
