The more you understand about crystals, the more effective they are. The beauty and power of crystals and other stones have been long recognised for a very long time, treasured for not only their aesthetically beautiful form but for their healing and spiritual power. It is widely believed crystals vibrate at the same pitch as humans, they’re able absorbers and transmitters of energies. Choosing a crystal is all intuition – you may not feel energy floating through a piece of amethyst into your body as you hold it in your hand, but our bodies pick up the subtle vibrations these stones put off. The vibrations are produced by the geometric molecular structure of each crystal. If you walk into a crystal store and find yourself drawn to a particular piece it’s generally for a good reason. Do a little research and you may just find the crystal’s properties are linked to something you might be dealing with personally in life. From carrying a small gem in your pocket to having a larger piece sit on your bedside table, there are no rules just what feels right for you.
