There is no scientific evidence that crystals have any healing power, but certain segments of the earth’s population have subscribed to the benefits of crystals for many years. Those who believe in the positive impact of crystals conclude that the stones allow positive, healing energy to flow into the body as negative, disease-causing energy flows out.
Crystals are generally categorized by shape (Isometric, hexagonal, tetragonal, triclinic, monoclinic, orthorhombic and trigonal) or by physical and chemical property (ionic, molecular, covalent and metallic). Crystals are all around you, but not all are of the healing variety, i.e. diamonds and snowflakes.
There are countless amounts of crystals that have healing properties and every person’s energy is different, so how your body interacts with a particular crystal or stone will vary. We will point out a few of the more popular and easy to find ones in this blog.
