Body, Mind, and Spirit
The beauty and mystique of crystals have enamored folks for thousands of years.

Not only were crystals used as tools, but they have always been and are at present worn to accentuate the body as well as beautify the decor of any living space. Crystals are not only found in computers and electronic gadgets but they are believed to have magical and healing properties as well.
Crystals have been used to protect, ward off harm and interpret messages from the spirit world. Traditionally gemstones were used to alleviate pain and sickness. Today, however, crystal healers use the crystals to remove the energy that causes physical illness.

Chakras in Relation to Crystal Healing

There are specific crystals which correspond to seven main energy centers of the body. (Also known as chakras) The color of the crystal corresponds with the color associated with a particular chakra.

For instance, red stones, when placed at the base of the spine (root chakra), energize this chakra.

Orange colored stones energize the sacral chakra (just below the navel).

The third chakra is energized by placing yellow crystals. The fourth is balanced by placing green or pink colored crystals.

The fifth chakra correlates with light blue, for the throat center. The sixth or third eye chakra, corresponds with dark blue or indigo colored crystals.

Lastly, the seventh energy center, associated with the crown chakra, corresponds with purple stones or clear quartz

Soothing Properties of Crystals

White stones are used for clearing and purifying energies whereas black stones are normally used for grounding energies. The placement is important but the intent of the healer is most important.

The orange and yellow crystals are known for their energizing and  organizing properties, as they aid in balancing the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras and help release tension in the heart.

The green and blue stones bring balance and serenity. They work in conjunction with the throat and heart chakras. They help one express their truth and love for self and others.

The purple stones work with the crown chakra, which is the energy vortex that is the control center for the entire chakra system. Purple stones are used to bring a state of balance, while working with the mind to receive higher vibrations.
