The power of healing crystal jewelry is not a new concept, but it is gaining more and more traction. Here we will outline everything you need to know about healing stones and recommend some of our favourite pieces.
History of Healing Crystal Jewelry
Believe it or not, but the use of stones and crystals dates back to ancient times from Ancient Sumerians, Egyptians, Greeks and Chinese.
The Ancient Egyptians believed the stones, such as turquoise and clear quartz provided protection and health. They also used topaz to fight off night terrors and evil spirits.
Additionally, the Ancient Greeks also have a deep history with crystals – in fact many of the names, such as amethyst and hematite derive from the Greek language. In fact, Greek soldiers were known for rubbing hematite over their bodies before battle for protection.
Jade was placed at high importance for ancient China and was used in both jewelry and musical instruments. Chinese emperor from 1000 years ago were sometimes buried in suits of jade armour. It was also recognised as a kidney healing stone.
How Wearing Healing Crystals Work
Experts believe that crystals emit positive energy wavelengths that help boost, clarify and steady our own vibrations. Crystals have their own vibrations that are unique in the way that their molecules move. Those vibrations are set to interact with ours and have a positive effect on the human body – after all, we are electromagnetic organisms.
That being said, there is no scientific evidence supporting that crystals can cure illnesses. However, there is something to be said for the power of positive thinking, belief and channelling our energies. Similar to the way prayer or religious beliefs can’t be explained by science.
