What are Crystals?
Let me first state I am not a geologist and would never profess to be so, so please forgive me if I do not always use the correct terms. However as I understand it, Crystals are solid forms of rock found within the Earth. Because some Crystals have been in the ground for so long they take on strange and interesting looking forms.
Crystals are solids that form by a regular repeated pattern of molecules connecting together. In some solids, the arrangements of the building blocks (atoms and molecules) can be random or very different throughout the material.
In Crystals, however, a collection of atoms called the Unit Cell is repeated in exactly the same arrangement over and over throughout the entire material.
Gemstones and crystals can obviously be worn as decorative jewellery as well as used in healing. When used in healing they are placed on the body, using different crystals for different parts of the body and "Chakras".
As a healer, the intuitive side comes to the front and with the aid of a Crystal pendant, I place the Crystals accordingly. When using Crystals with REIKI, I place the seven colours of the "Chakras" beneath the therapy bed to give extra energy.
Crystals can also be worn as necklaces or bracelets and even earrings as long as no more than three are worn at the same time, as more than three can cause conflicting purposes of the Crystals or gemstones.
