About Gemstones

Gemstones are semi-precious and precious stones. All can be called gems. All are minerals that have hardness, density, refraction and color. Each stone contains energy that is unique to the type of stone. Quartz crystals are used in  expanding  the mind to touch the  spirit  world.  Crystals are used to enhance the  beneficial  life force.  Crystal water (water that a quartz crystal(s) has been placed) has been drunk for its healthy benefits for centuries. Getting to know the properties and benefits of thousands of stones can take a lifetime, but is a rewarding and fun adventure. I invite you to study crystals  and  gemstones, their origins, folklore, meaning and current day uses on this page, dedicated to crystals and gemstones. Explore the meaning of gemstones and crystals and get creative with  them  for  your specific  purposes.

What is Dowsing?

Posted by SimNZ on Sunday, September 5, 2010, In : Crystals Meaning, Use & Colours

This ideomotor response is accountable for moving the dowsing instrument. Just as radios pick up information from unseen radio waves, the pendulum is a powerful antenna that receives information from...
