Crystals and semi-precious stones have fascinated people ever since they were first discovered. Many ancient and indigenous cultures throughout history such as in Egypt, Tibet and India believed these stones held protective or healing powers. Modern day spiritualists suggest crystals may bring about an awareness or state of consciousness to the wearer. They have been used in religion and ritual and decorated many temples, tombs and of course as beautiful jewellery.
Perhaps it’s the colour and shine or their unique structures or maybe there is something more to it? If you have ever been around crystals, say pottered through a beautiful crystal filled store with all sorts of twinkling delights then you might feel something different in the air. I have always been drawn to crystals and I’d seek these places when I felt distracted, confused or stressed and I’d always feel clearer afterward. Some people might watch a movie or catch up with a friend to change their state of mind whereas I would along with getting lost in nature, seek out my local crystal shop, preferably both.
