The theory behind crystal therapy is based on physical properties that some crystals display. (Quartz is the crystal therapists refer to when speaking of crystals in a general sense.) Quartz is composed of silicon dioxide (SiO2). Natural healers believe that the SiO2 in the crystal communicates with SiO2 in the human body. It is this common link that allows energy to transfer from the crystal into the body and promotes healing.
Certain crystals do possess vibrational energy that is known as the piezoelectric effect. This effect does allow crystals to expand with certain frequencies of energy.
The frequency of the vibrational energy released by the crystal is different for every color of gem. Based on this it is thought that different gemstones, with different vibratory rates, can be used to treat different ailments of the body, mind, spirit, et
The human body is made up of many individual parts. These parts have their own unique energy and vibratory rate as well. This energy is emitted to the area surrounding the body. There are 7 main energy centers in the body and these are known as the Chakras. Sickness, stress, impurities alter the natural frequency of the body causing some areas of the body to be unable to receive the necessary energy. The body will not be in harmony and sickness will be overwhelming
Crystals have pure and constant vibrations. Therefore, they are able to “fix" the imbalance in the human body.
It is believed that the energy given off by crystals is able to balance, clean, and re-energize the energy field of humans.
Chakra is the Sanskrit word for circular motion. A chakra is a spherical energy center that is forever in a fluctuating balance. The energy flowing through a chakra can be disrupted by physical, emotional, mental or spiritual blocks. The energy field of a chakra is affected by everything around us.
There are seven main chakras, and they are as follows:
1. coccyx (tail bone)
The coccyx chakra resonates with the energy of ontological knowledge, groundedness, presence and connection with elements around us. The healthy aura emitted by the coccyx is red in color. There are several gem stones, including red jasper, lapis lazuli, flame agate, ruby and azurite, whose energies resonate with the coccyx chakra.
The sacrum chakra resonates with the energy of human emotions; sexuality; creativity and anger; fear; and intuitive knowledge regarding persons, places and things. The sacrum’s healthy aura is orange. The stones resonating with this chakra include opal, fire agate, rose quartz, carnelian and the actinolite in quartz.
3. solar plexus
The solar plexus chakra is the energy resonance for the power of human will, control and free will; accomplishment; and ego projections. Its healthy aura is yellow in color. Its gem stones of energy resonance are laguna agate, jasper, howlite, amber, morganite, heliodor and golden citrine.
The heart chakra resonates with what it means to be human. Its healthy aura is a radiant green. Its gem stones of energy resonance are emerald, jade, ruby and plume agate.
This chakra is the energy of speech and hearing; self-expression and communication in general; and human
stones are pearl, carnelian, turquoise, bloodstone, malachite and jasper.
The brow chakra is the energy resonance of human inner sight, such as intuition, visions, dreams, charisma, emotional sensitivity and perception. Its healthy aura emits a deep sea blue. Gem stones resonating with the energy of the brow chakra include sapphire, sugilite, fluorite, azurite, lapis lazuli, opal, iolite, labradorite and celestite.
7. crown (top of the head)
This chakra resonates with the energy of wisdom, spiritual insight, aspirations and perception of truth. This chakra’s healthy aura is ultraviolet surrounding clear light. Gem stones resonating with the crown chakra include moldavite, lepidolite and danburite.
