Used for healing, protection, spirituality and more; crystals have become part of a growing industry. Popularity of crystals has been on the rise for good reason. Although some do not believe in the energetic properties of crystals, the use of crystals is dated back to the 4th millennium BC and they have a large significance in many cultures. One thing that all of these cultures used crystals for was their powerful energetic properties. Crystals provide incredible sources of high frequency vibrations and positive energy to anyone in their presence.


There is no doubt that spiritual energy can be found in physical objects. Crystals are a symbol of spiritual purity and perfection. Many believe that specific crystals can attract certain energies into a person’s life. For example, one popular crystal, rose quartz is believed to purify and open a person’s heart to promote love, friendship, confidence and harmony. It’s common for people to carry around specific crystals as a token of good luck, especially during stressful events.


Among teens, crystals are becoming a trend. Many chose to wear small crystals as necklaces, bracelets or rings, since crystals have increased power when in contact with skin. The wearing of crystals originated from the high priestess of Hebrew faith, who wore a breastplate with 12 stones. Wearing crystals is extremely beneficial, as they can help to maintain mental clarity as well as focus on things that are truly important. There are also types of crystals called worry stones, that can be held or carried in pockets to help with stress and anxiety. 


Psychics, palm readers and tarot readers also use crystals in their practices. It is believed that crystals are powerful enough for metaphysicians and healers to alter the flow of energy in the physical world. Crystals also retain the earth’s vibrations from the beginning of existence, which allows healers to better connect with the earth and its people.


Crystals have a long and interesting history, and are continuing to be passed down through cultures and trends. They possess many healing and protective abilities, and can be beneficial to everyone’s lives. Being easy to buy online and in stores, crystals are a great option for anyone who wishes to become more spiritual or reap the benefits from specific stones. Everyone should own a few crystals, whether for decoration or self care, they are an excellent source of balance in everyone’s lives.
