our awareness, not just of the physical imbalance / dis-ease but awareness of the psychological, spiritual and
emotional aspects of ourselves. Some crystals suit some people better or in different ways than others, but this
simply emphasizes our uniqueness and our different needs. As with many forms of healing, we take what we need.

tumbled stones, cut points, essences, and pieces of jewellery set with crystals. Essences are similar, in a way, to

Crystals are solids that form by a regular repeated pattern of molecules connecting together. In some solids, the
arrangements of the building blocks (atoms and molecules) can be random or very different throughout the
material. In crystals, however, a collections of atoms called the Unit Cell is repeated in exactly the same
arrangement over and over throughout the entire material. Because of this repetitive nature, crystals can take on
strange and interesting looking forms, naturally.
Crystal healing is a form of healing that uses crystals or gemstones. The crystals are mainly placed on specific
areas of the body called "chakras" meaning spiritual energy. According to this teaching there are seven basic energy
centers in the body, each having a color associated with it. Some crystal healers place the same color crystals as the
color of the chakras on the person to enhance the flow of energy. Crystals are said to direct the flow of energy to
the person in a particular part of the body and bring balance to a person's energy. Ultimately, they are used to
cleanse the person from bad or negative energy believed to cause an illness. Clearing out the bad spiritual energy
alleviates the physical ailment. Crystals are used for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. Additionally,
crystals can be worn, placed next to a person's bed as they sleep, and in some cases placed around a person's
bath. It is an alternative healing technique for strengthening the body and resolving issues and patterns using various
forms of natural crystals. The earliest records of crystal healing have been traced in Ancient Egypt. India's Ayurvedic
records and traditional Chinese medicine also claim healing with the use of crystals, dating back to 5000 years.
