Mystical & Mythical Powers of Colored Gemstones
Our ancestors and those before them used crystals and colored gemstones to heal, read the future, create and enhance love, achieve enlightenment and true inner peace and prosperity. The energy of life is absorbed, stored, and released in different rhythms and frequencies of the different colored stones depending on their color, brightness, light absorbing and reflecting qualities, and hardness. The force grows stronger closer to the true center of the stone from where all light and life is reflected.
Recognizing the powerful and sensuous properties of colored stones, primitive earth dwellers ornated their bodies with crystals of color at time embedding the stoned directly into the skin allowing it to grow around and become one with the material like a great old tree folds itself around stones it presses against for centuries. Survival of the ancients was enhanced by the use of stones for defensive purposes, grinding food, holding warmth in the dark of night. Stones were used for buildings, fortification, to beautify, along with curing and future visions.
The ancient Greeks understood and used stones as as the object of great power and indeed, colored stones have survived all civilizations that have come and gone.
