The History of Crystals
Amulets are magic charms worn by people to protect themselves from negative energies, evil and injury, and also to bring good luck. Most of the negative in our lives we either allow in, or are creating ourselves, weather we realize it or not. You have only to take an honest look at your life, and ask yourself "Is this making me happy". By choosing to wear an Amulet, you may also be choosing to make a positive change, and it could help to remind you the new, and more productive direction you wish your life to go.
The oldest amulets are of Baltic amber, some date from as long as 30,000 years ago and amber beads have been discovered in Britain from 11,000 years ago, the end of the last ice age. The distance they traveled to reach Britain is a testament of their value to the people of that time. Jet was also popular. Jet beads, bracelets, and necklaces have been discovered in Paleolithic grave sites in Switzerland and Belgium. Malachite mines have been in Sinai since 4000 BC.
Amulets were banned by the Christian Church in 355 AD, but gemstones continued to play an important role, with sapphire being the favored gem for ecclesiastical rings in the 12th century. Marbodus, the Bishop of Rennes in the 11th century, claimed that agate would make one more agreeable, persuasive and in favor of God. There were also many symbolic references, such as the carbuncle representing Christ's sacrifice.
The first historical references to the use of crystals come from ancient the Ancient Sumerians, who included crystals in magic formulas. The Ancient Egyptians used lapis lazuli, turquoise, carnelian, emerald and clear quartz in their jewellery. They would also carve grave amulets from those gems. The Ancient Egyptians used the stones for protection and health. Chrysolite (topaz and peridot) was used to combat night terrors and purge evil spirits. Egyptians also used crystals cosmetically. Galena was ground to a powder and used as the eye shadow known as kohl. Malachite was used in a similar as well. Green stones were used to signify the heart of the deceased and were included in burials. These Green stones were also used in a similar way at a later period in Ancient Mexico.
Rose quartz beads dating back to 7000 BC have been found in the area once known as Mesopotamia (today's Iraq). Rose quartz jewelry was known to be crafted by the Assyrians around 800-600 BC. The Assyrians, along with the Romans, might have been the first to use this stone.
People in the earliest recorded times believed in the magical powers of quartz. Ancient Roman, Egyptian, and Greek civilizations used quartz crystals as potent talismans. The Romans used rose quartz as a seal to signify ownership, and Egyptians believed the stone could prevent aging. There are those who believe that certain crystals and gemstones have properties that facilitate healing. Many sites promoting crystal healing say that the history of this practice is ancient, dating back at least 6,000 years to the time of the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia. Ancient Egyptians are also referenced on such sites as being among the first people to have adorned themselves with crystals including: lapis, lazuli, carnelian, and turquoise to ward off illness and negative energy.

Certain crystals, such as members of the quartz family, possess piezoelectricity, a quality that is said to allow electrical impulses to pass through a crystal in a per-determined path. This makes quartz useful in the manufacture of silicon chips in computers, and helps to keep watches accurate. Therefore, clear quartz is used in crystal healing to transmit and direct energy. In healing terms, this means that the vibrational energy can dissipate an energy blockage, or direct and amplify healing energy. Sometimes I have to remind myself which crystals I could be in need of, and Quartz, I think, is an important one.

Crystaly for your Animal Friends
To understand how crystal healing works on animals, it is important to understand that all living beings are made up of energy and possess electromagnetic fields. Each crystal, gemstone and mineral resonates at a specific vibrational frequency and amplitude that in turn attracts the energies of particular qualities and traits to an animal. Those energies mix with the animal's own energy field. For example, if a particular dog or cat has suffered abuse, You could choose a crystal like rose quartz that energetically resonates with the qualities of healing, love, comfort, relaxation and trust. The animal most likely will not possess these traits right now, but since they are the desired traits for her, our goal with the crystal is to have her energy field move into resonance with, or in the direction of, those traits. This is a non-invasive form of healing and one that our animal companions resonate well with since they seem to be closer to nature than we are.
Crystals can be used to direct, amplify, absorb, reflect, clear, transform, transmute, balance and focus energies. This means it is always advisable to have a clear intention for the results of your crystal healing work.
