Crystals and precious gems are undoubtedly jewels in the crown of Mother Nature’s creation, but is there really anything more to them than aesthetically pleasing colours and formations? Ask anyone who has ventured down the crystal path and the response will be a resounding “Yes!” For these people crystals are powerful tools that have the ability to energize, soothe, cleanse, heal, transform, and inform the energy fields they come into contact with. Many of us even develop deep relationships with our stones, seeing them as teachers, guides and friends. But for the more sceptical and less sensitive among us, the metaphysical properties of gems probably seem as though they should sit on the shelf next to magic beans, sea monkeys, and penis enlargement creams.

I personally grew up straddled between the “woo woo” world that I was naturally drawn to and the pragmatic world that I was raised in. I was taught to see people who worked with crystals as flaky, absurd, phony types who lacked connection to reality — but nevertheless, I was attracted to the shimmering, mysterious stones. One of the most difficult aspects of finally coming out and calling myself a crystal worker was that I knew that the majority of my friends and family perceive the practice in the same way I was taught to see it: ‘New Age’ mumbo jumbo. Fortunately for me, the power and allure of the stones trumped the subtle, or not so subtle ridicule, and has actually played an important role in encouraging me to throw off the shackles of social judgement, as well as helping me to better understand some people’s need to discredit others’ experiences and belief systems.
