Crystals, Gemstones, and their Properties

Updated: Nov 11

Crystals have been used for centuries. Things like carvings from mammoth ivory to amulets date back thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians used emerald, turquoise, lapis lazuli, clear quartz, and others in their jewelry and life events. Ancient Greeks used crystals for a variety of events. Ancient China highly valued jade.


Each gemstone has different properties and vibrates at different frequencies that correlate to different parts of the body. Everything has energy. When the frequencies in your body are higher, you are more in line with your true self. Some people are drawn to rocks and gems by how they look, others are drawn to one but don’t know why. There are hundreds of books on crystals and crystal healing and many metaphysical shops to take classes at.

Chakras and Stones


The chakra system (the seven major energy fields that run through your body) runs through all life and through the human energy system. They are an important part of our being, they are the body’s energy centers through which the life force flows. These are the keys to emotional well-being, physical health, and mental clarity. When one or more of these vortexes get blocked, it sends our energy system off and this has a direct impact on our physical body. Blocks can happen by stress, toxins, trauma, and a number of other things. The main seven chakras start at the base of your spine and go to the top of your head. They are root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown.
