The history and meaning of healing crystals
You may have heard about these magical crystals that are supposed to work wonder for your inner soul. What are they exactly? Let’s dive back into history.
The first use came from the Ancient Sumerians, who included crystals in magic formulas. All the way back 1000 years ago.
Ancient Egyptians started using things like Emerald and Clear Quartz in their jewelery. (Could be a reason I feel connected to both. Emerald is my birthstone and I have loved Ancient Egypt since a young child)
Ancient Greeks started using the stones for various reasons. Many of the crystals in turn have Greek names.
Now a days, crystals have gotten so popular that there are various resources to help guide you. From books to YouTube videos to websites.
The idea is that each unique crystal works with your body both physically and mentally. Creating balance and alignment.

Known as the love stone, Jade controls the heart chakra. A symbol of serenity and purity. It signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility. It increases love and nurturing.
The most important crystal to invest in if you wish to attract love, friendship and luck.
I love the stone and the name so I named one of my cats Jade. Turns out he is a male but when naming newborn kittens, you have to guess until they are older.
Some tips to get the most out of your crystals
1. The full moon is a great time to bring your crystals outside to cleanse them. This helps get reid of all the things they helped with during the previous month. Making them clear to help during the duration of the new full moon. Make sure to do this monthly.
2. Keep the stones under your pillow at night. I like doing this with new crystals because I believe it will help with the connection a little better. I also do this with any new packs of tarot cards I get.
Not to mention, certain crystals aid with sleeping
3. During meditation, use the stone that represents which chakra you wish to focus on. Put the stone where that chakra is. Example- Amethyst on your forehead
Crown chakra is the top of your head includes Violet crystals- Amethyst, Moonstone
Third eye is between your eyes includes blue stones such as Azurite, Sapphire
