Crystals are Earth’s DNA. When you hold a crystal, you are holding part of Earth’s crust. The crust is composed of minerals that produced chemical reactions that formed Earth, as millions of years ago. At heart of a crystal are atoms that rotate in constant motion. So while a crystal looks serene, it’s a molecular mass vibrating at a certain frequency thus giving the crystal its energy. Crystals are powerful tools that can increase the vibratory effect on our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Crystals can amplify good energy and absorb or alleviate negative energy. The best way to use crystals is to keep them as close as possible to you throughout the day or night. The closer and more frequent the contact with the more potent the effect.
