A crystal is a material composed of atoms, molecules or ions that have formed and arranged in a crystalline structure. The word "crystal" and the word "stone" or "gemstone" have their own meaning depending on whether you are a gem collector, a geologist or an architect for instance. In healing, the word crystal and stone are typically used interchangeably.

Crystals have been used since thousands of years by many civilizations dating at least as far back as the Sumerians in 5000BC. Records show that Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese and Native Americans used crystals as decoration, jewellery, amulets and for healing. Check out our in depth Crystal Guide below for the history on each stone.

According to the laws of physics everything and everybody on earth has a vibration, an energy. So do crystals. Their energy field binds with yours to create harmony and balance. Each type of crystal has its own unique energy and will assist you throughout your life depending on your needs.
Each crystal type vibrates at a certain frequency depending on their molecular structure. This frequency emanates like ripples in a pond. Frequency is information in the form of energy. When you are near a crystal or physically hold one you are able to access that information, energy, frequency.
Your thoughts are also energy, so remember to program your crystals to do what you need them to do by holding them in your hand and setting your intentions...then let the magic happen!

Cleansing is the word used to clean/ purify the energy of your crystals. It is very important to cleanse your crystals so they can always work to their full potential. Crystals pick up energy from people and their surroundings, positive and negative which can, in turn, affect you. So always cleanse your crystals before your first use and then at least once per month. If used regularly, cleanse them more often or when you feel it necessary, especially stones used for EMF (ElectroMagnetic Field) pollution protection (Amazonite, Smokey Quartz, Shungite, Black Tourmaline) which should ideally be cleansed once per week. Cleanse your crystal by placing it: • Under the light of the Full Moon for a night • In direct sunlight for a few hours • In a bowl of uncooked dry brown rice over night • Bury them in the earth for a day • Use smoke from a smudge stick, Palo Santo or incense for a few seconds around the crystal All of the above methods can be used interchangeably, however, some of these processes don't suit certain varieties of crystals. If that's the case we have highlighted this in the crystal description in the Crystal Guide below, in our Crystal Box Sets and in our e-shop.
