Gemstone + Chakra Healing

Healing Benefits of Natural Gems+Minerals

Gems, Minerals and Human Chemistry

As you delve into the science, mathematics and healing of crystals and minerals you are peaking into the very framework of the human body. There are so many links and correlations to the Earth’s elements, chemistry and clusters that they almost mimick the compositions of human anatomy, physiology,  chemistry and function. Like most things on this planet, and in the earth’s crust we are highly carbon-based beings or elements.  It is no coincidence that the elemental periodic table almost mirrors that of the man’s chemistry. What is “Above is also Below” the great Hermetic axiom illustrates.

Furthermore there is a powerful correlation between these elements and using or programming crystals (gems) and minerals metals to activate healing in the body, energy and auric fields. “Crystals are the earth’s DNA a chemical imprint of for evolution. They are miniature storehouses, containing the records of the development of the earth over millions of years, bearing the indelible memory of the powerful forces that shaped it.” (Judy Hall, The Crystal Bible.) The fact that the human body returns to the earth through its cycle of life and death further supports that we are made up of ‘earthly and heavenly’ elements.

Quartz Crystals – Sillica, Oxygen and Tetrahedra

The mineral kingdom in the form of crystals is one of the most powerful tools for healing and ascension. Quartz are found in molten magma and covers only 10% of the Earth’s crust, second to feldspar. It is composed of the chemicals sillica (silicon dioxide and oxygen shared between two tetrahedra (triangular pyramids) and are powerful semi-conductors.

In the majority of silicates, the Si atom shows tetrahedral coordination, with 4 oxygen atoms surrounding a central Si atom. The most common example is seen in the quartz crystalline form of silica SiO2. In each of the most thermodynamically stable crystalline forms of silica, on average, all 4 of the vertices (or oxygen atoms) of the SiO4 tetrahedra are shared with others, yielding the net chemical formula: SiO2. The only stable form under normal conditions is α-quartz and this is the form in which crystalline silicon dioxide is usually encountered. In nature impurities in crystalline α-quartz can give rise to colors.  As is common with many substances, the higher the temperature the farther apart the atoms due to the increased vibration energy.(source: wikipedia)

Quarts in particular are resistant to weathering and abundant in carbonate rocks. Ore minerals are gold, iron, copper and silver.

Crystals come in various colors and varieties from microcrystallines, crypto crystallines, and macrocystallines including amethyst, citrine, jasper, tigers-eye, rock crystals, rutilated quartz, rose quartz, smokey quartz, milky quartz, chalcedony, aventurine, onyx, agates, sard, carnelian, and heliotrope.

Quartz, gems and metals are known throughout the old and modern world through myth, legend and healing modalities with assigned characteristics and healing properties. Their uses are ancient and primordial used to dispel, enhance, attract, deflect and empower its users and practitioners.

 

 

 

 


Cleaning and Charging Crystals

There are several ways to clean crystals including using salt water, the moon or sun planetary energies, the earth, and smudging. Cleaning or clearing crystals involves ridding the crystals of any negativity or collected unwanted energies. Since crystals store, amplify, repel and/or transmit energy it is important to know specific crystal attributes or  your crystals signature. A signature consists of a tone, or frequency, as well as attributes or characteristics you can use to identify and care for your crystal. Crystals help to balance your energy and environment. Once a crystal is overburdened any excess negative charge can cause breakage or leaking of negative energy. Below are some cleansing techniques you can use to cleanse your crystals:

Sea Salt – Soak  in 1 tablespoon of sea salt (made of earth+evaporated water) to your crystal for a few hours then rinse

Sun Light  – Leave in Sun light for a few hours

Moon Light – Cleanse with salt water, sound, or smudging then place in Moon Light

Smudging – Burn incense such as Frankincense and Myrrh, or White Sage, holding crystal to the Smoke (Air)

Sound – resonating vibrating sound using crystal tibetan bowls, gongs, or bells allow crystals to absorb the resonance of this sound and take on its frequency

Amethyst Cluster Crystals – use cluster crystals to cleanse

Earth – Soil or Brown Rice – cover crystal for 24 hours – can either eat rice or throw away

3rd Eye Magic Clearing – imagine connecting to Earth Grid and placing white or gold light into your crystal

Essential Oil (Essence) Sprays – use Flowers, or Essential Oils with a spritzer to spray floral or essential oil vibration (frequency) onto the crystal


Precautions: Note, although I have never had any issues with my personal crystals and tend to be a rough and tumble gal when it comes to my own crystals I will add the Heat and Light Sensitive Crystal note to this section. My birthstones are Lapis Lazuli, and Turquoise and I’ve traveled to Mexico and Arizona under 100+degree sun temperatures, hot baths, and more and have never had issues with my Turquoise, Rose Quartz, Lapis Lazuli, or Malachite crystals to date.

Crystals that are Heat and/or Light Sensitive

  • Azurite, Halite, Selenite – water soluble
  • Lapis lazuli, Opal, Turquoise – porous, do not soak, dry after cleansing
  • Malachite – use cool water only, dry after cleansing

Light sensitive crystal types:

  • Amethyst, Rose Quartz – may fade
  • Turquoise – may dry out

Heat sensitive crystal types:

  • Amethyst – may fade in heat
  • Quartz – may fracture with sudden temperature changes
  • Lapis Lazuli – avoid high heat
  • Malachite – avoid sudden temperature changes
  • Tourmaline
  • Turquoise
