THE POWER OF CRYSTALS ~ Additional pages >right>



The basic tenant of metaphysic teaches us that energy responds to intention. Once our intention is set upon healing another person not only do we become a conduit for healing but the energy of the crystals and stones we are using also pick up the vibration of the healing intention bringing forth their own inherent and special healing gifts.


Nature is filled with Sacred Geometry and the Mineral Kingdom is no exception. Crystalline structures can be thought of as the Earth’s DNA storing the evolution of the planet. Science tells us that crystals formed from the same mineral or combination of minerals can crystallize differently. The outward expression of a crystal is based upon its internal order although the outer form may not always reflect what is going on at the heart or core of the crystal. At the inner most center of a crystal is its atomic structure spinning or rotating at a particular frequency or vibration.


This represents the energy of a crystal and is what a sensitive person feels when handling a crystal. It should be remembered that stones and crystals share the same electromagnetic patterning and atomic structure as the Earth, the human body, and all other creatures and entities. Surrounding the center is Sacred Geometry as chosen by Nature upon which the crystal is built. This internal structure is believed to be constant and unchanging.


“In mineralogy and crystallography, a crystal structure is a unique arrangement is a unique arrangement of atoms in a crystal. A crystal structure is composed of a unit cell, a set of atoms arranged in a particular way; which is periodically repeated in three dimensions on a lattice. The spacing between unit cells in various directions is called its lattice parameters. The symmetry properties of the crystal are embodied in its space group. A crystal's structure and symmetry play a role in determining many of its properties, such as cleavage, electronic band structure, and optical properties.” – Wikipedia online


There are six crystal systems that delineate their symmetry - Isometric, Orthorhombic, Tetragonal, Monoclinic, Hexagonal, and Triclinic.


ISOMETRIC – block like or ball like with many similar symmetrical faces forming as cubes, octahedrons and dodecahedrons. Sodalite, Fluorite, Garnet, Lapis, Galena, and Pyrite are a few examples.


ORTORHOMBIC – short stubby diamond shaped or rectangular at the cross section forming as four sided prisms, pyramids and pinacoids (an open form with two parallel faces). Examples are Sulphur, Cat’s Eye, Peridot, Topaz, and Marcasite.


TETRAGONAL – long, slender, and needle like forming as four sided prisms, pyramids, and dipyramids. Examples are Rutile, Cassiterite, Apophyllite, and Zircon.


MONOCLINIC – stubby with tilted matching faces at opposite ends forming as prisms and pinacoids. Examples are Malachite, Azurite, Chrysocolla, Jade, Selenite, and Serpentine.


HEXAGONAL (TRIGONAL) – prismatic or columnar with rounded triangular or hexagonal cross section forming as six sided prisms, pyramids, and rhombehedrons. Examples are Tourmaline, Beryl, Quartz, Cinnabar, Hematite, Calcite, Dioptase, and Apatite.


TRICLINIC – flat with sharp edges and a thin cross section with no right angles forming as pinacoids. Examples are Turquoise, Wulfenite, and Feldspar.


Here are the geometric forms of crystal structure:



The Platonic Solids



The 5 Platonic solids (Tetrahedron, Cube or (Hexahedron), Octahedron, Dodecahedron & Icosahedron) are ideal, primal models of crystal patterns that occur throughout the world of minerals in countless variations. These are the only five regular polyhedra, that is, the only five solids made from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons. To the Greeks, these solids symbolized fire, earth, air, spirit (or ether) and water respectively. The cube and octahedron are duals, meaning that one can be created by connecting the midpoints of the faces of the other. The icosahedron and dodecahedron are also duals of each other,and three mutually perpendicular, mutually bisecting golden rectangles can be drawn connecting their vertices and midpoints, respectively. The tetrahedron is a dual to itself. The Chakras which are the spinning energy vortexes of the human body are also subject to Sacred Geometry as it comes to us via the Five Platonic Solids. Please note the similarity between the geometry of the Chakras known as Polyhedra (equal angles, faces and vertices or points) and crystalline structures.





Healing with crystals is a very ancient modality. Archeology has shown that the knowledge and use of crystals, minerals, and gemstones dates back to the Stone Age. Ancient cultures revered crystals and stones and engaged them not only for healing purposes but also for communication and prophesying. Many people believe that these ‘magickal rocks’ particularly Quartz was used extensively for advanced technology in Lemuria and Atlantis. Even a skeptic would have to open a more objective eye to this concept when we already know that something as simple as a ham radio can be powered by the tiniest solo piece of crystal (Galena) without the aid of batteries or household electric current.


Along with the ancient alchemists, contemporary scientists and physicists have researched the properties of crystals and stones. We know that the magnetism produced by an electric current is inherent in the atomic structure of certain stones. Human beings are also magnetic and electrical so a natural tie can be made. Esoterically speaking, mystics, shamans, and quantum physicists perceive that electromagnetic energy is the physical source of ether or the fifth element (along with the elements fire, earth, air, and water) in which all creatures exist. From this viewpoint, the relationship between magnetism and electricity can be seen as bridging the gap between physical reality and other worldly reality. Hence, crystals and stones also as a bridge between those realities.



We are all children of the Universe and our bodies represent the Cosmos in miniature. We are attuned to not only Mother Earth but also Father Sky and our human bodies are the vehicles through which we experience all there is to experience. Everything happens within the body. The body is your house. It is place where you go to make change happen. Did you ever hear the expression, “If you want change, you must first clean up your house?” All psychic phenomena and psychological conditions occur within the body – we go into our ‘houses’ to find the answers from our mind, feelings, and instincts (rational, emotional, and psychic). During a Crystal Healing, assistance for these internal answers comes from the Kingdom of Stone buried at the heart of the Earth and from the Kingdom of Light through the Hand of God. Crystal Therapists understand the Mineral Kingdom as a Universal Energy that is used for healing under the auspices of the Higher Will and Divine Law of God. The power of crystals and stones work through the higher consciousness of the individual being healed. A Crystal Therapist like any other energy healer houses no great personal power. They simply help to direct Universal energies through use of the Mineral Kingdom to further the propagation of the Light and Love for the good of all. Crystal Therapy is a serious healing modality which requires right attitude and right action. Nothing less is acceptable.

Do meteorite pieces also count as crystals or same categories? They are sold for thousands of US $

Thanks sav your comment was useful

Comment by John Savlove on January 20, 2018 at 6:11am

namaste Sudharsan. I'm no expert, but here's a place to start!


1. Choose a red stone to put near the base of the spine or, alternatively, use two red stones of the same sort and rest one near the top of each leg. This deal with the base chakra.

2. For the sacral chakra choose an orange coloured stone to put on the lower abdomen.

3. At the solar plexus use a yellow stone, placed between the navel and the ribcage. If there is tension in this area an energy—shifting stone, like a tiger's eye or a small clear quartz point, can be put at the diaphragm to help release.

4. The heart chakra in the centre of the chest can be balanced with a green stone. A pink stone can be added for emotional clearing.

5. For the throat chakra use a light blue stone . Place it at the base of the throat, at the top of the breastbone.

6. An indigo or dark blue stone is normally used to balance the brow chakra in the centre of the forehead. Amethyst or another purple stone can be used here.

7. The stone for the crown chakra rests just above the top of the head. If you have chosen an amethyst for the brow, use a clear quartz at the crown. If you used a dark blue stone at the brow you can use violet stone at the crown.

I am new to reiki and I am wondering which crystals are commonly used by reiki healers.
Comment by Lena on April 19, 2013 at 12:25pm

I am just discovering Stichtite, the purple crystal  also know as Lavender Jade. 
"Stichtite provides for expansion of awareness in the emotional aspects of ones life. It brings a calming peace to the environment in which it resides and is a very good stone to place around the home or office. It provides for flexibility, openness in opinions and for faithfulness in promises. Stichtite can offer a loving companionship to those who feel alone and also assists in learning to be gentle with ourselves and each other."  Love is in the Earth--A Kaleidoscope of Crystals by Melody






I have very closed to my heart and experience tingling all through my body...

You know best!

....a soothing crystal that may work help to clear your meridians and brain patterns is to get a piece of green moldavite.........the ultimate healer as far as I am concerned.  Holding it for a bit each day in meditation is so lovely....or if it is a set piece wear it during the day.

I think you are wise to keep amethyst near you - it does bring in the higher self energy and if not sleep with it have it on a night stand. it seems your nervous system is active...and for meditation helps so much.


Comment by Readlorey on September 18, 2012 at 7:00pm

I have slept with amethyst a lot in the past but only because it helps to calm me down like rose quartz. All the others just keep me going. lol

I'll have such vivid dreams I'm exhausted the next day so I just don't sleep with anything but amethyst.


Comment by Zoran on September 18, 2012 at 5:36pm
I sleep with my crystals all the time!!!
Comment by SwanRa on September 18, 2012 at 12:51pm

Actually dear crystals are consciousness at a higher vibratory rate than ours their Music will be more available when you sleep. As in sleep your subconscious is out of the way. The energies of specific crystals can accelerate and will your present consciousness.

You can start with little ones that call to you - wear a heart chakra bag....or put under your pillow.....then work up to the bigger Lemurian wands. Wooo Hooo.

The ones with the lines are a library waiting to be can run your fingernail down the length of the crystal to open the files when you feel ready or just put under your pillow or hold in your hand as you will find your awareness expanding amazingly.

You of course know you said what you did to gain more info - do you feel a particular crystal call to you - one you already have or one that is waiting?....

You have questions that listening to your great awakening crystal will is about opening more to intuition.

This is a library crystal also....have any like this? If not there is one out there that has your name on it!

Blessings.....Nancy, a Swan
