Crystals – Metaphysical Properties – Daily Life Usage


Crystals (also known as Quartz Crystals, Rocks, Gems, and Gemstones) are minerals with homogeneous solid substance that have a natural geometrically regular form, with symmetrically arranged plane faces.

Crystal healing is an alternative medicine technique in which crystals and other stones are used to cure ailments and protect against disease.



Today, we understand that all things in the universe are forms of energy with their own frequency and vibration – including crystals. Nikola Tesla declared this concept as the key to understanding the universe and proved how certain forms of energy can alter the vibrational resonance of other forms of energy. This concept is why healing crystals and stones are still used today to align, heal and alter the vibration of bodily cells, chakras, and the subtle bodies by holistic healers.

The ancients didn’t have access to the enlightening scientific information that we have today concerning the power of healing crystals. However, people around the world seemed to instinctively be drawn to these lovely gems and have a deeper understanding of their value and meaning in the greater scheme of the universe.


Crystals – History

Minerals, gems, and crystals have been used for thousands of years to enhance emotional, physical and spiritual balance. How the ancients had this knowledge, we may never know, but these cultures considered stones as a major part of their existence.

The Romans used talismans and amulets of crystal. Most often, they were considered useful to enhance health, attract desirable things, and for protection in battle.

Ancient Egyptians were the biggest historical proponents of healing crystals and buried their dead with quartz upon the forehead. This was believed to help guide the departed safely into the afterlife. Pharaohs used cylinders filled with quartz to balance the Ba and Ka energies of the body. Lapis Lazuli stones were worn by Cleopatra, upon the eyes, to promote enlightenment and awareness. Many wore crystals over the heart to attract love, and upon their head to stimulate enlightenment and awaken the Third Eye.

Ancient Greeks used Hematite by rubbing upon soldier’s bodies before entering battle with the idea that it would make them invincible. Interestingly, the word ‘crystal’ is thought to derive from the Greek word ‘krustullos,’ – meaning ‘ice’ – and until the 1500’s many ancients believed stones like clear quartz crystals were eternal ice sent from the Heavens. The mythological story of Amethyst plays a vital role in the story of the God Dionysus and Goddess Diana, and the word is said to be the Greek translation of ‘sober’ or ‘not drunken’.

Theories about Atlantis mention the use of crystals by Atlanteans. Crystals possess harmonic frequencies and could be used with an instrument that looks like a tuning fork.
