"Crystals grew inside rock like arithmetic flowers. They

and perfect obedience to an absolute geometry that even
stones -- maybe only the stones -- understood."
~ Annie Dillard
Called the "stone people" by many Native American cultures, crystals and minerals have been used throughout history to facilitate healing and spiritual growth.
Modern science uses quartz crystal to run precision time pieces, computers, radio transmitters, lasers, and more. This is because, in crystal, nature has created the perfect electromagnetic conductor. The human body is a complex electromagnetic system. Discomfort on the physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual level can be traced to blockages and disruptions in the flow of its natural energy or "chi."
In crystal therapy, assorted stones are placed on and around the body in a pattern designed to resonate with "chakras" or energy vortexes of the body. These patterns create a matrix of energy that assists the body in releasing blockages and refining the energy flow. Crystal thrapy puts the client into a deep state of relaxed meditation in which he or she can process deeply held issues and patterns at an accelerated rate.
