As far back as the Stone Age, men and women wore gemstone and crystal jewelry for decoration and protection. Crystals and gemstones carry the same powers today and jewelry can be selected not just on the basis of its outward attraction.
Within the realm of Crystal Therapy all stones, gemstones, gems and minerals are referred to as crystals. A crystal is defined by its internal structure, not its outward appearance.
When selecting crystals for healing, the size of the stone, and whether a crystal is in its natural state or has been tumbled, polished, carved or shaped will not affect the unique properties that each crystal offers.
Some gemstones can easily be overlooked when in their natural, uncut state. Others are stunning in their natural form. Many crystals are highly decorative, especially when they have been shaped and polished.
Regardless, their attributes remain the same, crystals heal holistically. There is an enormous variety of precious stones, all of which greatly enhance their surroundings, especially if you choose them for their esoteric properties.
