The Bible is one of the first scriptures that refers to healing crystals. Gemstones are mentioned in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. They are used in ancient and modern worship aides to influence life in the realm of physical manifestation.
Why the Crystals Work
Gemstones and Crystals have Natural Healing and Amplification properties which affect our well-being. The meaning of each stone is tied to the Frequency and Chemistry of the crystals and gemstones which determines the color; and the structure determines how the energy is amplified. Our essence or spirit connects to the Light vibration, the color, this is because we embody a spirit purely of Light. Our light responds to the spirit (light) of the stone. We synergize and this creates the change which balances, supports and heals us.
