Crystal Healing Properties Guide

Throughout the ages, the healing properties of gemstones and crystals - their beauty, and magic - have been recognized and harnessed.  As far back as the Stone Age, men and women wore crystal jewelry.  They had a protective, as well as a decorative function, guarding their wearer against harm.  The ancients employed gemstones for protection, adornment, healing and for seeing into the future.  Gemstones were frequently worn and carried by ancient Egyptians as amulets and charms.  Greek mythology frequently refers to gemstones, and many have been discovered in the tombs of Chinese rulers.  Gemstones were used extensively in ceremonies and initiations by the Native Americans, the Mayans and Aztecs.  The breastplate of the Jewish High Priest was set with precious stones; it conveyed power to the wearer.

Gemstones and crystals today carry the same power and energy as in the past.  Healing jewelry is now worn, not just on the basis of its beauty, but also because of the healing power of the crystals and gemstones it contains.

Here, you will discover that wearing gemstones and carrying crystals is a highly effective way to promote health and healing.  They can boost your energy; clean your space; attract wealth; enhance your intuition; increase mental abilities; boost your confidence; bring abundance; or even attract love.
