Crystal Properties : Where Do They Come From?

crystal-healing-properties

Many of us use crystals to help us with a host of issues in our everyday lives.  When intelligently used, crystals can help us work with our own hopes, fears, shortcomings and dreams.  One of the questions most frequently asked is, “What are the properties of this stone?”

But there’s a more basic question that comes with this:  Where do crystal properties come from? Who decides what a crystal is good for, and how do they know?

While intuition is part of the answer, it’s far more complicated than that.  The history of crystal healing and crystal magic goes back to a time before recorded history, and stones have helped people in every part of the Earth.  Deciding how to sum up a crystals metaphysical properties, neither ignoring history nor burdening ourselves with a book’s worth of information, is a challenge and can take time and much practice. 

Three main sources of information come into play:

  1. Historical uses of the stone.  In considering crystal properties throughout history and throughout the world, we should look for common threads.  The Chinese, Persians, and Aztecs may each have a dozen different ideas, but it’s the one they have in common that will give you the most to work with.
  2. Intuitive impressions from trusted crystal experts. Here things get a little subjective.  Anyone can look at a stone, hold it in their hand, and bring forth intuitive ideas about how it might be used.  But how much of that is useful for anyone else, and where do you draw the line between intuition and imagination?  There is no easy answer.  But over time, certain experts have earned the trust that people have found to be reliable and even peer reviewed.  Do a comparison of their advice and look for commonalities.
  3. Chakra associations/color magic.  Chakras are the figurative “wheels” of energy associated with the human body. The word comes from Hindu tradition, but the concept crosses cultural lines.  For modern purposes, chakras usually mean the seven energy centers that run from the base of the spine through the crown of the head, each of which is associated with a color and an area of human experience and health.  Simply by looking at a stone, anyone can know certain basic properties if they’re familiar with these color associations.

When working with crystals, it is important to draw from all these sources and knowing how to put all this knowledge to use. Alwways keep in mind that subtle energies can change quickly and different crystal energies will apply as the vibrations shift and change.

There is a lot of information on this subject matter.  A good source of information are books by Katrina Raphael.
