The properties of crystals and gems to absorb and store energy are well recorded and exploited, and the vibrations and harmonics they emit undoubtedly have impact on our thoughts and emotions.

On another level they are, simply, beautiful. Whatever else they have given us in the past, and whatever practical uses we have for them, no one can deny their aesthetic qualities, and crystals and their meanings are set to remain an integral part of our fascination with alternative modes of healing.
