Healing with mineralsDid you know that your crystal collection likely contains some imposters? That’s right! They’re sitting there right now along with your crystals, but they’re not actually crystals at all…

 

Things like…Obsidian, Jet, Amber, and Shungite (just to name a few) are not technically crystals, but rather minerals. Not to worry.  These imposters still make excellent healing tools. Healing with minerals is powerful in its own right. 

You see, crystals are minerals with a regularly-repeating atomic structure.  So all crystals are minerals, but not all minerals are crystals.

Crystals must have a crystalline lattice, or blueprint.  This perfectly repeating, internal structure gives a crystal its stable energetic vibration.  Most healers prefer crystals because when a crystal is introduced into the energy field, the energy body goes through the process of entrainment.  This means the energy field begins to mimic the perfect, stable, energy of the crystal, which brings the energy body back into balance.

So why do healers also use non-crystalline minerals like those mentioned above?

Crystal healing works on many levels – not just because of a crystal’s internal, molecular structure.

Some minerals are used because of their history or lore.  For example, Amber, an organic mineral, has a long history of use for cleansing, protection, and good health.  Because of these historical associations, many modern healers, still use this stone today for the same purposes – with great results!

Minerals may also be used because of their color energy.  When a mineral displays a certain color, it can be used for healing to enhance or balance the qualities of that color.  The color we see is actually the color being reflected off of the stone as light passes through it.  So, the reflected colored light enters the aura and harmonizes the energy in that part of the spectrum.  For example, Black Obsidian, which is an amorphous (non-crystalline) mineral, is used for protection and grounding because the color black is associated with these qualities.  So as light passes through the stone and we perceive it as black in color, that is the energy vibration being given off by the stone.

So you see, even though your “crystal” may not really be a crystal at all, it can still help bring your body, mind, and spirit back into balance.
