The Power of Crystal Healing

Crystals were popular for their healing powers in ancient Egyptian cultures and ancient Greece. Crystal word comes from a Greek word for ice, as they believed clear quartz was frozen ice that remains solid.


Amethyst meant ‘not drunken’ and was used for protection for becoming drunk and getting hangovers. Hematite was used by Greek soldiers as a body rub, believed to make them strong. Jade stones were considered to be lucky by the Chinese and in New Zealand.
