Gemstone & Crystal Healing – History
In Christian mythology, the city of New Jerusalem walls were decorated with precious stone, each layer built with a different gemstone from Jasper to amethyst. Additionally, in Exodus, the Christian god ordered precious stones to be used in the making of the breastpiece of the high priests garments. In Egypt, rulers were buried with amulets and talismans ( pieces of gemstone ) made from Carnelian, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise, Quartz and Gold. Everyone with a small understanding of Egyptian healing knows that Egyptian pharaohs were buried with huge amounts of gold to assure a good afterlife. Jade in China has long been a symbol of prosperity and integrity and crystals are used extensively in Chinese feng shui.
Today there are many therapists using crystals and gemstones in healing and many spiritualists who carry or place particular gemstones around their person or home.
