Gemstones have been used for their decorative, healing and protective properties since the beginning of time as ancient people communed with the natural world. Their knowledge of the power of minerals suggests that the use of gemstones ran much deeper than mere aesthetics. Even the smallest stone is believed to be both a transmitter and a receiver of various vibrations. Each gemstone vibrates and emits its own unique radiance which is believed to interact with the electromagnetic field of our bodies.

Some of my favorite sources for information are The Encyclopedia of Crystals by Judy Hall, The Metaphysical Book of Gems and Crystals by Florence Megemont and Edgar Cayce on the Power of Color, Stones and Crystals by Dan Campbell. These books provide a fascinating look into the history, energy and properties of gemstones and crystals and their use in balancing energies of the body.
