Crystals and gemstones have captivated people’s imaginations for centuries. Many people have been puzzled by the beautiful shapes and colours of crystals. Three main questions arise when we talk about gems; what are crystals? how are crystals formed? and how to use crystals? In this article, we will focus on the definition of crystals and interesting facts to know about the mineral kingdom. We will also learn about crystals and their meanings.

These beautiful gems grow naturally deep inside the earth. It takes hundreds of thousands of years for the crystals to reach their perfect form.  Crystals are also referred to as the roses of the earth. They are on this earth to bring beauty and good energies just like the flowers. The Crystals are created from the vapours inside the earth which are rich in mineral components. Most gems form in volcanic locations where hot gases clash with cooler temperatures.  The Crystals come in many different shapes, sizes and colours. There are many different types of crystals and gems. Each crystal is unique and you can never find two crystals that are identical. They might have certain resemblances but crystals are just like fingerprints. Each gemstone is one of a kind.

Gemstone Meanings & Their Metaphysical Properties

The healing and metaphysical properties of crystals have captivated civilizations’ imagination for centuries. There are hundreds of different types of gems. Just by looking at the quartz family, we can name a few members such as; quartz crystal, rose quartz, smokey quartz, rutilated quartz, Amethyst, Auralite, citrine, and more.

One of the most popular crystals is the Amethyst which is a member of the quartz family. During the Roman times, Amethyst was actually worth more than diamonds. Amethyst can be found in many places around the world. Recently, very large mines of Amethyst were discovered in Brazil and Uruguay. The mineral manganese is what gives Amethyst, it’s beautiful purple colour. The darker the colour the better the quality of the stone. Amethyst is a stone of positive change and is often used when you need to improve certain aspects of your life. This stone sends energies that are calming and relieve stress.
Rose quartz is another popular mineral. This crystal is also known as pink quartz or the stone of love. Its energy represents the unconditional love that speaks directly to the heart chakra. It is quite effective in attracting new love, romance and intimacy, or in developing a closer bond with family or friends.

If you are looking for gems of extravagant colours you should look at the turquoise gemstone. Turquoises are often called blue crystals because of their deep blue colour. Clear quartz is perhaps one of the most sold crystals around the world. It’s the symbol of the mineral world and also the symbol of Crystal Dreams.

Crystals and Science

Many scientists and engineers have studied the power of crystals and gemstones for many generations. Minerals such as gold or silver have been given a great value by humans. The reason why gold was chosen as a currency instead of amethyst, iron, pirate, etc, was due to its shining colour, rarity and it was easier to process than other minerals. What most people don’t know is that even before gold was given that value by humans, gold has always been a symbol of prosperity to attract abundance into your life. Perhaps when we decided to turn gold into currency we were just listening to the  inner self and following our intuition.

There are energies in this universe which we cannot yet understand because we focus only on our five sensory personalities. But these energies cannot be seen, smelled or touched. They can only be felt with your soul; with your own energy field. Science has been trying to prove the theories about energies and crystals but they always reach a barrier where our reality collides with our imagination.  Even though science has not yet been able to prove the theory of crystal emitting energies, it does not mean it does not exist. A good example of a crystal that emits energies is the famous magnet which is also a mineral and also from the family of crystals. Magnets attract iron with their invisible magnetic fields. Even though, we cannot see or feel it, that magnetic field is real and it is also energy. We agreed that this attraction is real because we see results on our physical plane.

Many great geniuses in our history such as Nikola Tesla analyzed the theories of energies and vibrations to discover how crystals and gemstones reached this perfect form after millions of years. After a long and bright career as a creator and scientist, Nikola Tesla stated a very interesting quote;

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

– Nikola Tesla

If you understand that everything around us is full of energies, you will soon realize that every object, animal, plant, mineral and any living being on this planet have their own energies as well. You have to surround yourself with positive energies and learn how to use them to attract abundance into your life. This is the true secret of life, you have the power to create your own reality. If you are looking for healing crystals for yourself, the Crystals Dreams shop has a great variety of gems and the best quality crystals.
