A Little Crystal History

Some people may think crystal healing is a new age thing.  It has indeed become more popular in recent years, however, our dear ancestors have been using crystal healing since time began.  The energy of Quartz crystals has been used for many thousands of years. 

Working with crystals is certainly not new. Although crystals have been around and used since time began, the first historical references of the use of crystals come some 6,000 years ago from the Ancient Sumerians.

In Ancient times crystals were used and recorded by several cultures such as Egyptians, Chinese, Greeks, Japanese, Indian, and Romans. The most famous stories we have grown up with belong to the Ancient Egyptians.  They loved their crystals, their favourites being Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise, Carnelian, Emerald, and Clear Quartz.  They would not only use them for healing benefits but for burying their dead to balance the Ba and Ka energies.  Female royalty would also wear certain stones in jewellery to help with fertility and protection from all evil.  Cleopatra would have Lapis Lazuli crushed down into a powder so she could use it as eye-shadow, probably making this the most expensive makeup of its time.

Crystal use was also said to have been widespread on the legendary lost continents of Lemuria and Atlantis which would have been used by the highest priests and priestesses.  The history of healing crystals is truly fascinating. and inspiring.  I encourage anyone who is just starting their path into crystals to look a little deeper.  Crystals are linked to so many amazing things, not only healing but astrology, spirituality, Angels, chakras, and many more subjects.
