Types of Crystals

1389925054-93.jpg

Crystals are defined as solid minerals, in which component ions, atoms, and molecules are arranged in a regular structure. It is this orderly arrangement of the constituent particles that gives all types of crystals a straight edge and flat surface. Examples of common crystals include salt, sugar, snowflakes, gemstones, rubies and diamonds. Each of the crystal types possess a specific shape and different properties, based on which they are classified.

There are seven crystal systems or groups, each of which have a distinct atomic lattice. The atomic lattice is a three-dimensional network of atoms that are arranged in a symmetrical pattern. The shape of the lattice determines not only which crystal system the stone belongs to, but all of its physical properties and appearance. In some crystal healing practices, the axial symmetry of a crystal is believed to directly influence its metaphysical properties.

Crystal healing is a phenomenon wherein the properties of crystals and stones are used to manipulate our thoughts and emotions, so as to help manage anger, stress, depression, disease symptoms, and other negative energies in the body. With the increased popularity of crystal healing, rigorous studies have been done on crystals and their meanings.

Crystal Energy

Crystal energy can be used to increase the energies that help healing the body and mind. Unbalances in the body’s energy field can be caused by the mind focusing on negative aspects. Crystal energy helps change negative energies and replaces them with positive energies.

Crystal energy affects your body by balancing your body’s energy. I will not be touching here on the use of crystals healing by means of a healer; however, I will focus on the use of crystal energy and the theory behind healing crystals and gemstones.

The theory behind crystal energy is to do with the Quantum theory. The Quantum theory considers the Universe and all things that make it, as existing in an empty space with forms of energy moving within each space. Of course this includes our physical body which is a space with energy flowing infinitely through its own space. Your body’s energy is used when you breath and when you show emotions and thoughts.

The healing processes of crystals and gemstones are considered a special flow of energy that change the way the destructive energy flows. This special flow of energy can be helped by the use of healing crystals and gemstones to improve and speed up the healing processes. Crystals and gemstones can be used as a tool to give the healing flow of energy an important boost in adding power to achieve cures.

Crystal energy and crystals are a tool that can enhance not just your health, but anything you undertake. Although crystals and gemstones occupy a different space than our body and mind, within the Universe there occur an interaction between your body and mind and the energy forms. This interaction is executed through shared properties resulting from the energy flow.

For example, the electromagnetic properties of a Quartz crystal share the same type of electromagnetic properties of the body, thus somehow the crystal’s electromagnetic energy flows can positively interact with the same electromagnetic energy flow of the human body.

The quantum theory helps to explain the effect of crystals in our psychological and biological life. Even disregarding the Quantum theory, the use of healing crystals and gemstones has been a beneficial practice used by people throughout centuries. This practice is very beneficial for the healing processes.

Crystals and their colors correspond to chakra points in your body. These have been found to have cleansing and energizing properties that interact with the body causing them to work on problem areas. Appling the energy of the crystals and gemstones to the body enhances the cleansing and energizing effect to the body.

Below is a list of the chakras and most popular crystals used in healing.

Root Chakra: Jasper (bloodstone), garnet, onyx and rubies.

Second Chakra: Hematite and moonstone.

Third Chakra: Citrine, amber and topaz.

Fourth Chakra: Rose quartz and Chinese Fluorite.

Fifth Chakra: Aquamarine and turquoise.

Six Chakra: Sapphire, turquoise and amethyst.

Seventh Chakra: Clear quartz and amethyst.

Healing Stones and Crystals – Crystal Healing – iBuzzle

Want to know more about healing with crystals and gemstones? Read on…

Gemstones and crystals have had a long association with mankind. For centuries, man has used crystals and gemstones to create happiness and healing within his life. These crystals and gemstones are formed under the earth’s surface and contain many minerals. They give out healing energy to the wearer. These crystals are said to synthesize the energy of the sun into healing energy.

There are a variety of healing gemstones and crystals available in the market. All of these stones possess qualities which can be desired by any or all of us. So which gemstone or crystal is just right for us? The answer is not so simple. Go with what you feel. Hold the stone in your hand and let go of all emotions. Probably only one or two emotions will refuse to go away. For you, the stone will represent those emotions. If that is a happy emotion, go with it. Otherwise the stone is not for you. Alternatively, you can also consult an astrologist or a gem therapist to suggest suitable crystals and gemstones for you.

These crystals and gemstones contain many healing properties. They are made out of minerals which have come together under the surface of the earth. This gives them their unique colors and qualities. There are several methods of using the crystals for healing purposes. Some of them are outlined below.

One of the most common methods of using healing crystals is by placing them on the affected parts of the body. These can be your seven chakras, or just a particular body part. The therapist will use stones that are suited for your body type, and depending on the chakras that are needed to be activated or unblocked.

Another very common method is wearing the crystal. If long term healing or benefit is desired from a particular crystal, then most people prefer to wear the gemstone in a pendant or in a ring.

Another method of healing with crystals is making elixirs from them. This is a fairly simple procedure where you place your chosen crystal in glass bowl of pure spring water and leave it in the sunlight for 12 hours. This water can then be bottled (preferably in a dark glass bottle with an air tight stopper) and can be used for a week. If you want to use the water for a longer time period, you can add 50 percent brandy into it. This elixir can be drunk or added to your bath or used as a spray. However, please study the minerals in a particular crystal before drinking its elixir. Some gemstones and crystals might not be suitable for making elixirs. Either the crystal might be water-soluble or poisonous.

A useful method of healing with crystals is putting the crystal in your bath water. You can also add to the healing environment by burning incense or scented candles and bathe in this relaxing environment. This can be quite a rejuvenating experience.

It has been mentioned before that all crystals have healing properties. You have to find one that suits you the best. You can do that by keeping the crystal with you for a few days and observing the effect. If it does nothing for you, you can ignore it. If it creates a bad feeling, discard it. If you feel good with it, and you notice benefits, then hang on to it.

Cleansing the crystals is also equally important. You can place them in the sunlight or the moonlight for 12 hours after washing them thoroughly under running water. Take care, that water soluble crystals will dissolve by frequent washing.

Here is a list of a few healing properties of crystals and gemstones :

  • Amber: Draws off negative energy, cleanses the aura.
  • Amethyst: Heals and protects the aura, draws divine energy, treatment for acne and arthritis.
  • Tourmaline: Provides a psychic shield, releases toxins.
  • Labradorite: Prevents energy leakage, aligns with spiritual purpose.
  • Quartz: Cleans, protects and increases aura.
  • Smoky Quartz: Grounds energy, dissolves negative patterns in aura.
  • Flourite: Anti-Viral, Dissolves blockages.
  • Moss Agate: Treats fungal infections.
  • Citrine: Clears mental confusion, improves concentration.
  • Carnelian: Re-energizes.
  • Chrysocolla: Releases unresolved grief.
  • Aquamarine: Clams stressed or overactive mind.
  • Yellow Sapphire: Creates abundance.
  • Turquoise: Harnesses creative energies.
  • Rose Quartz: Attracts loving energies.

A story among gemstone fanatics is that when a stone has done its ‘thing’ for you, it will find a way to leave you. So if you find yourself losing a stone at some point, remember, that it has done its job and has moved on. If you persist in getting a replacement stone, then it too will move on. I can say this is true with personal experience.

A gemstone is, thus, a gift of Mother Nature which gives you a lot of energies that are loving and healing and help create an aura of happiness and prosperity.
