Created over the millennia, healing crystals harness the life giving elements of the Earth and the universe. Harnessing the energy of the Sun, the Moon, and the oceans, semi-precious stones connect us to Earth as soon as we come into contact with them.

Many people wonder if crystals have healing powers, and while there are many anecdotes. The order of the stones is different from Hoshen and three stones are missing (לשם שבו ואחלמה).The Seventy (Septuagint) translation of the book of Prophets into Greek was amended: the number of stones brought to 12 and their order restored according to the Book of Exodus (chapline ).

Stones and rocks are the skeleton of the solid part of the earth on which the flesh of earth is laid. Stones are to be found everywhere: little flinty stones which the plough turns up in many a field; round, smooth pebbles on the sea-shores of the world; tumbling scree on the mountain sides, like a great overspill of waste rock from some factory in the heart of the mountains; giant rocks.

A gemstone (also called a gem, fine gem, jewel, precious stone, or semi-precious stone) is a piece of mineral crystal which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments.

However, certain rocks (such as lapis lazuli and opal) and occasionally organic materials that are not minerals (such as amber, jet, and pearl) are also used for jewelry and are therefore often. Laying out the key principles behind this spiritual science, Michel Coquet explores the seven sacred gemstones of the seven rays--diamond, sapphire, emerald, jasper, topaz, ruby, and amethyst--and shows that not all precious stones have true mystical powers: they must be charged, either naturally or through ritual, with a living deva or angelic.A key to precious stones Spencer, Leonard James Read.
