Metaphysical Properties A-Z


A bowl of crystal delights!


LITHOTHERAPY


From the depths of our prehistoric past, crystals have held the human psyche captivated. Archaeological evidence from the Paleolithic to the Bronze Age and beyond reveals the widespread use crystals in ritualistic burial practices and personal adornment. Rather than being a new trend, the practice of lithotherapy (from lithos, the Greek word for rock) has been well documented and preserved throughout the ages. Many cultures have contributed to the lore and magic surrounding sacred stones - from Roman philosopher Pliny the Elder's talismanic descriptions of crystals in his Natural History, to the 6th century Sanskrit Brihat-Samhita on the function of gems in Vedic astrology and divination. Lengthly healing and metaphysical properties can also be attributed to the voluminous materia medica lapidary texts of the Middle Ages, including works by Avicenna, Isidore de Seville, Hildegard von Bingen, and others. Shamanic societies around the world commonly feature crystals in prominent sacred and ceremonial contexts. These archaic and folkloric lithotherapeutical practices have been employed across time, evolving into the wide array of crystal applications we have today.
