The Power of the Crystal can be found in its structure, growing and reaching up toward light from the deepest parts of earth. It is a conductor of energy, both as a receiver and a transmitter. Clear quartz crystals have been used for centuries in healing. Egyptians used them in pyramids, to attract the power contained in light. Their triangular shapes held mystical appeal. American Indians have long revered the crystal as a sacred symbol of light.
In some cultures, crystals are considered sacred objects that are empowered with the elements. Many cultures carry them in pouches for protection from negativity. It is important to keep your crystal clean in order to protect it from negative outside vibrations. Your personal crystal will attune itself to your vibrations, as you will attune to the natural vibrations of the crystal. Choose crystals that seem to speak to you or that you feel attracted to for best results.
