Physical and chemical properties
Scientifically speaking, crystals and minerals differ in their properties in terms of electric and heat conductivity, formation of their crystal grid (or matrix in general), chemical constitution and optical properties.
Our modern day science recognizes the importance of the crystalline matrix when it comes to for example manufacturing communication and other devices and conducting electrical current in a specific way.
1) Applying pressure on a quartz crystal (or for example Rochelle salt) results in polarization of the crystal and therefore electrical voltage supply; this phenomenon is known as the piezoelectric effect.
2) Other crystals such as galena or silicon are frequently used as semiconductor rectifiers, carrying the current in one direction and prohibiting its flow in the opposite.
3) Many crystals can be successfully utilized in microscopy and similar optical fields as light refractors. While many transparent crystals such as sodium chloride have an isotropic formation and refract the light in an even way as it passes through the uniformly formed crystalline matrix, anisotropic crystals such as tourmaline, calcite or quartz, having their structural properties distributed in an uneven way, refract the light unevenly based on the orientation of their crystalline lattice relative to the light source.
4) As white light passes through a specifically formed optically transparent crystal or prisma, it refracts at different angles and splits into the various wavelength frequencies contained within it, causing the colours of the rainbow to emerge. Chromatic dispersion is utilized in spectrophotometry and a variety of optical fields.
5) Proteins can be made to form crystals under specific conditions, usually in a supersaturated solution they are being dissolved in. This way, the structure of protein molecules can be determined.
6) Photonic crystals, used in all 3 dimensions in any field there colour is manipulated (optical computers, thin-film optics, colour changing dyes and paints, etc.) have specific nanostructural properties enabling them to affect the motion of photons. An example from the nature might be opal with its unique colour properties.
The use of crystals as a multiple-level healing tool is one of the most popular alternative therapies in the history of mankind, keeping its reputation even in today’s society dominated by the scientific approach to things around us. Not being strictly based on the principles of medicine, crystal healing is more spiritual and belief-based than a medical. Its application can be traced all the way back to ancient civilizations such as the one in Egypt and healing properties of crystals are abundantly used even nowadays in therapies like Ayurveda or traditional Chinese medicine.
It is important to understand that the esoteric approach crystals is based on a vibrational view of the universe, where everything, including thought, is a made up of waves with a specific frequency, interacting with each other and sharing the same space.
Crystals are believed to interact with the energy system of human (or animal) body (*read more here*) consisting of major energetic centres called chakras, connected together by a multitude of etheric energy channels, meridians and nadis, altogether forming an electromagnetic field around the body, an aura. Blockages withing the subtle bodies restraining the natural flow of energy and potentially resulting in a pathological state of the human nervous system are removed or eased by the energy of the crystal, fine-tuning the human energy system and contributing to overall well-being. Human energy is much more fluid and moving compared to the crystalline energy which is more solid. As a result, the human energy is much more likely to eventually mimique the energy of the crystal rather than vice-verse.
Thought is viewed as a wave with a specific frequency just as anything else, therefore, crystals can be programmed, their energy can be focused and directed and a person using a crystal as a healing tool can tune into its energy for the highest possible benefit.
Metaphysical properties of crystals are based on their colour, constitution, shape and formation, size and quality grade. Also, their age, location of the deposit and interaction with diverse civilizations in the past might be yet another aspects determining their functional properties. Crystals, one of the most effective energy amplifiers able to store and transmit energy, must be cleansed and charged regularly to prevent previous programming or negative energy being stored within them and making sure they hold a positive energy balance.
Many crystal healers and collectors claim that crystals are living organisms with their own consciousness and awareness – ancient beings of their own kind living in symbiosis with Earth.
