Crystals and Gemstones for Healing and Transformation

Crystals can do more than just bring beauty into our lives, crystals contain an energy that is healing to both mind and body.

Crystal healing goes back in time to aboriginal cultures, including those of the Native Americans, many of whom have believed that certain stones have the ability to heal. Such "energy medicine" underlies energy healing practices like reiki, which tunes into circuits of energy within the body. Crystal healing involves getting in touch with that inner energy by using crystals, which are thought to be repositories of healing energy.

Crystals can be used either to diagnose diseases or to cure diseases by enhancing or unblocking energy in the person who receives the treatment.

Crystal of the Month

Chakra: Root
Chalcedony is a crystal that absorbs negativity and leaves calmness where it has been. It is a form of quartz much like agate, bloodstone, carnelian, chrysoprase, Jasper and onyx. Chalcedony occurs in many different shapes and colors. It carries with it the healing power of quartz but not the amplifying energy. The color will indicate on which chakra it will be most effective.

Chalcedony brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit into harmony. As it absorbs negativity it encourages brotherhood and good will. Chalcedony turns the “blues” into joy. It absorbs negative thoughts and emotions, resulting in reduced fear, hysteria, depression, mental illness and sadness. It releases self-doubt. It also reduces stress in the eyes.
