Crystals are the most amazing things, a wonderful tool and really helpful in moving and balancing energy. I have been using them for over 35 years. In fact I have many amazing dreams with large and beautiful crystals.
It is amazing how there is such a variety of colors and shapes and qualities of crystals. Just like herbs, they all have unique energy signatures. I have a sensitivity such that when I hold a crystal I can feel where it goes in my body or in my chakra system. Many others have this ability as well and thus there is much information out there about what each crystal is good for. People have valued gemstones throughout all history, and these gems are just crystals that are more rare and powerful. Even royalty put them in their hats to denote that they were powerful and rightful rulers.
Lapis Lazuli is the stone of truth. This beautiful, blue crystal is one of the most vibrant, ancient, and sought after on earth. It has long been associated with royalty and luxury, and its celestial properties assist those in the physical realm with wisdom and good judgement. Lapis Lazuli activates the ethereal upper chakras and empowers the Throat Chakra for clear communication and ease of expressing one’s ideas. This intriguing stone promotes inner observation and truth as it assists in the discovery and representation of the spirit realm. Use this powerful stone to support and help heal the throat, larynx, and vocal cords. It can help focus the mind.
Lets speak of 5 different crystals in the quartz family:
Clear Quartz know as the spirit stone is likely the most commonly known crystal, crystal quartz is seen as the window of light into the metaphysical world. This particular crystal contains the entire color spectrum, and can be used to amplify desires, prayers, and manifestations from the spirit world to the physical world.

It harmonizes the mental, physical and emotional bodies and reestablishes balance. It can help speed up recovery time from an injury, illness, or surgery.
Kyanite is one I have only recently discovered. It is a stone of emotion. It helps the mind create pathways where none previously existed, especially in terms of emotional development and meditation. It does not accumulate negative energy, so it does not need to be cleansed, and can actually be used to cleanse other stones and spaces. The calming blue-green hue is associated with the sky and therefore is extremely soothing and supportive to the nerves.
