The Concept of Healing Stones
Using particular gemstones especially for healing and other purposes has been a concept that has been in use for a long time. In fact the use of particular gemstones can be dated as far back as ancient civilization. This is not just used as new age healing but they also been considered as amulets to ward off bad spirits and wearing the right gems would also serve as your lucky charm.
Using healing stones has always been one alternative to modern science that has yielded positive outcome to the people using it. Even with the proven benefits from the people using it, healing stones also have their own share of people who are skeptical about their healing capabilities.
If you are one of those people who doubted the efficacy and reliability of using stones for healing, your first thought would be how science could be applied in the use of healing stones.
Gems have different uses and purposes, that’s why people who practice this type of healing believe in having different types of crystals handy to ward off different ailments or problems. They also believe that these gems have what it takes to subconsciously change your chi. If you are a firm believer of science, you know that certain energies create matter and these energies have the tendency to vibrate thus using healing stones will alter your vibrational patterns.
People like me who greatly believe in the healing prowess of these stones know that the energy coming from these gems and crystals will give a positive impact to our general well being- may it be physical, mental or spiritual. Different crystals have different uses. Ametrine, for example, is known to cure people of depression. Copper is used for rheumatism and arthritis while moonstones are known to straighten out hormonal imbalances. One of the more popular crystals, the rose quartz, have always been associated with fixing sexual problems, improve blood circulation and getting youthful looking skin.

Years of clinical studies and research have proven that different kinds of minerals and crystals have certain vibrational patterns. Using gemstones for a period of time for a particular problem (physical and mental) will greatly affect the benefits that you would get out of these stones.
The longer you are using these healing stones, the greater their efficacy is to you. This is due to the fact that time has allowed your own vibrational patterns to be in sync with the healing stone’s own vibrational pattern.
