Healing Properties and Information About Gem Stones and Crystals

A B C D E F G H I J K - Z

Metaphysical Properties of Crystals And Gemstones: I've been enjoying and collecting crystals and gemstones for almost 20 years. (a lot longer than that if you count my childhood fascination with rocks and minerals) Over these years I have come to know and accept that crystals and gemstones hold “energy.”

Some of this has been from my own discovery with stones and some of this has come from reading the work of others. What I offer here is a combination of the information I have come to know about the spiritual properties of crystals and gemstones. I invite you to read these informational pages I have gathered for you but I also invite you to listen to the stones themselves and discover the answers and information for yourself.

Perhaps you may want to come to know a stone before you read my descriptions of the properties of the stones. You may start by holding the stone in your hand, close you eyes. Feel your feet touching the ground. Begin to relax, take in a few deep breathes. Now let your thinking mind drift away, becoming only aware of the stone in your hand. Ask the stone to reveal its energy properties to you. Now listen deeply to what comes.

Sometimes it comes with words, images, sensations or thoughts. Keep listening. What truly matters is you own connection to the stone. How does the stone feel to you?

May you enjoy your discovery into the mineral kingdom.

Blessings, Debra
