Crystal Healing is well known and trusted...
The use of crystals in healing dates back to the time of the Ancient Greeks, who used the crystals they found for their magic formulas. Most of the names for various stones and crystals were given by the Greeks during that time.
The Ancient Egyptians also used stones for health and protection as well as for ceremonial purposes, as have most culture’s religions since that time. In the early 1600s, Anselmus de Boot, court physician to Rudolf II of Germany, stated that the properties of stones were determined by good or bad angels. Good angels would bestow special powers to a gem, while bad angels would lead people to believe the stone itself was the power, and not that it was blessed with gifts from God.
With the Renaissance period, the use of crystals fell to the sidelines for the most part and would only re-emerge in the 1980s with the creation of the New Age culture, which saw them return to the world of healing along with many of their traditions.
Today, crystal healing therapy has gained the reputation of being a valid, complimentary therapy is offered in colleges as a program, and has crossed the boundaries of religious or spiritual belief.
