Crystal Properties

Crystal healing has been used for thousands and thousands of years.  Crystals and gemstones work with electromagnetic energies and are said to absorb, focus and transmit energies.  They each have unique vibrations which can help to restore balance within the body’s energy systems.  Some contain minerals which have special therapeutic properties, for example, Malachite contains Copper which can help aching joints and muscles.

Crystals and gemstones work on a holistic basis treating the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspect of our being.  Many people believe that crystals and gemstones hold special mystical powers or qualities.  There are traditions and lore relating to each crystal and we endeavour to provide in-depth information relating to each crystal or gemstone we sell.
