Jewelry is beautiful; there is no doubt about it. Baubles have adorned our ancestors throughout the ages. But how useful is this jewelry we so enjoy showing off? For jewelry made with natural elements and gemstones, I say it will be as useful as we want it to be!
Natural crystal gemstones have been around since the beginning of time. Their powers were known in ancient civilizations, including the infamous lost lands of Atlantis and Lemuria. Crystals draw and attract us; it’s no wonder we put them into jewelry!
Combining the forces of crystals and jewelry, we get something that goes beyond physical beauty and enters the realm of healing energies. Wear a pair of Sodalite earrings for mental balance, slip on a Smoky Quartz anklet for grounding, add on Ruby bracelets for passion and hang an Aventurine pendant over your heart for abundance.
We’ve all seen these stone-to-energy relations, these emotional associations, these metaphysical folklore, condensed and popularized to fit mainstream birthstone charts and Chinese souvenir shops, but what is the underlying truth? Where do they get this stuff?
Enter the simply complex realm of “crystal healing.” Healing with the natural powers of the earth probably dates back to the time we started wearing these stone baubles around our necks. If I’d have to venture a guess, I would guess jewelry came about because we wanted an easy way to transport our crystal prescriptions.
Why crystals?Crystals are different from rocks in that they are formed in a unique symmetric structure; a simplistic scientific statement, but one that works well for our purposes. Having this symmetric structure allows crystals to emit a constantly positive energy.
So here we are, crystals around our necks giving off a constantly positive energy, perhaps even humming a happy song. Well great, you may say, a lot of jewelry makes me happy, what’s so special about these crystal pieces? Ah, and here lies the rub! What turns ordinary gemstone jewelry into crystal healing powerhouses: the power of your mind, the force of your thoughts, the strength of your will.
