Learn the Meanings of Gemstones and Crystals. 

The use of crystals dates back over 5,000 years in traditional Chinese medicine texts and is even referenced in the Bible over 200 times for their power and associations.

Ancient warriors wore Carnelian crystals in their breast plate armor for courage and physical power to conquer their enemies and Rose quartz was cherished by the Ancient Egyptians and Romans for its physical beautification power to clear ones complexion and prevent wrinkles.

The modern day invention of the radio used a quartz crystal to transmit frequencies which lead to pretty much all modern computing technology with the use of silicon. The reason crystals were us is because crystals have a high and precise rate of vibration.  

In the body, this rate of vibration allows them to effect change in the spinning energy centers of the chakras, clearing out any negativity and allowing them to function at peak capacity. We need to be in balance to be in perfect health. Crystals work with us to restore that balance.

The higher the vibrational balance of the individual, the higher the vibrational balance of the earth. This will enable a shift in consciousness,  higher state of awareness and frequency of Mother Earth.
