Crystals are normally used for beautification as jewellery, for emotional healing, for generating energy to activate a space and for healing ones chakras. Crystals are particularly good at helping us adapt to changes in energy vibes created by emotional and psychological imbalances in our environment or by ourselves. Crystal energy is used to nourish ones vibes and create consciousness in achieving our goals. Depending on ones vibes, some are more receptive than others and need less time to sense the effect of the crystals. But there are also others who may take more time to experience the amazing effects of the beauty and power held in them. For those who desire to test the energy of crystals, the easiest is to place their hands inside the amethyst cave and will feel the immediate pinching effects. They provide good, positive energy while keeping away negative energy which could cause disease and suffering. They are responsible for peace, protection, economic stability and happiness.
There are many types of crystals: natural crystal from earth, fallen stones from sky, laboratory grown crystal and leaded glass. Natural crystals which crystallized from pressure and heat of natural forces may have inclusions (foreign material), is normally unclear and have natural cracks in them. Another type of natural crystal is fallen from the sky and had travelled through heat from a long distance to form stones. On the other hand, laboratory grown crystals are being developed through a process known as crystalization and dyed to perfection with less or no cracks and the colors are more evenly distributed. Meanwhile, the leaded glass crystal contains lead to enhance the shiningness and reflective qualities of glass.
Natural crystals are crystallization of minerals that were created by heat and pressure for a long period of time. They crystallize in layers and then turned into a more structured shape and size. This formation requires large amounts of energy and it is during this period of time that the crystal accumulate the energy. And it is this energy that brings life to the crystals. All natural crystals and gemstones "vibrate" with their own individual frequency. Science has proven that crystals possess a natural power called the piezoelectric effect. This means they have the ability to amplify, channel or flow like electricity. Natural crystals grown from earth has powerful and strong earth energy and are potent energizers for earth element. The energy emanating out of the crystals is clear and integrates with human aura, this being its contribution to feng shui.
Some natural crystals are originated from fauna and flora, such as coral, amber and pearls. In recent years, feng shui experts had discovered that the ammonite (said to be 70 million years old) is a powerful wealth stone. Ammonite was found in recent years, after many years of search for it. People in Hong Kong and many parts of the world believe that the ammonite possesses energy for generating good luck.
Another natural precious stone worth mentioning is the tektite meteorite, a god-made stone that is extremely popular and seeked after. Tektite is not a crystal or stone that grow on earth. Instead it is the ONLY stone genuinely fallen from the sky through outer space, being the reason why it is the only stone genuinely believed to be fallen from the heaven. A tektite is actually a meteorite that falls onto earth, only found in Tibet, Australia and USA. The Tibetan tektite is the most powerful. Some scientists believe they belong to material found in the moon due to geochemical evidences. Because it is a meteor, it has powerful energies and strengthens energy field within us and in our surrounding. It is best to benefit those who desire to balance and activate the whole chakra system for all-rounders luck. It is known to have the best effect to ward off evil spirits and bad luck. Its black color is best to represent water element, therefore benefits wealth and career luck!
All natural crystals store energy. The kind of energy depends on the composition of the mineral, the structure of the crystal and its color. There is great importance to the color of the crystal. All crystals of the same color are connected to the same part of the body and to the same emotional and mental needs. The difference between crystals of the same color is due to their mineral composition.
On the other hand, laboratory grown crystals have the amplifying and storage properties of natural crystal, but considerably cheaper. Because synthetic crystals are man-made, the crystalline structure is perfect and they have distinctive vibration qualities that differ from natural crystals.
Meanwhile leaded glass crystals are made from glass, carbon, boron and germanium which could change the color of the end-product. They possess a great deal of sparkle and are used to diffuse light over a wide area. They are usually made rounded, faceted or shaped into auspicious designed that could be used in feng shui to transmute energy. When shar chi enters faceted crystals, the facets deflect the energy and turn it into positive forces (sheng chi).
Hence, crystals can clarify thoughts, channel energy, increase creativity and rectify emotional balance. They can also be used to realign the chakra centers (our energy points).
The word "chakra" is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning "wheel". If chakras were tangible, you would see wheels of energy that continuously revolve and rotate. There are seven major chakras, each rotating at different speeds. Illnesses or emotional imbalances can occur because they move out of alignment or there are blockages which restrict the free flow of the body's energy. Crystal healing is aimed at realigning these chakras.
So, how would you know which crystal to choose? The easiest way is by colour. Each chakra has an associated color (or colors) that can be matched to crystals or minerals which affect various areas of the body.

Where 7 chakras are located   Color
The Crown (Forehead)  White, clear
The Third Eye (Brow)  Dark blue
The Throat  Light blue (aqua, turquoise)
The Heart  Pink, green
The Solar Plexus  Yellow
The Navel/Spleen (Sexual Center)  Orange, reddish
The Root  Red, Brown, Grey, Black

Other way of choosing a crystal is easy. You may be attacted to a crystal because of its color, its form, the feeling it may give you or anything else that makes that stone special in your eyes. Normally this is associated to your personal element from your Bazi. If one is lacking in certain element, they have a special instinct for that particular color. Choose the crystal by your own feeling - the intuitive impression is most important.Some people keep the same stone, while others change the stones according to the needs or desires of each day (examinations, important meetings, court cases, pain etc) or according to intuition. Once you have picked your crystal, you need to "programme" it with your thoughts. This is a way of personalising and creating a new energy or bond between you and your crystal.
But before you start using crystal, the first step is to cleanse it. This can be done through several methods. Some may recommend salt water cleansing, while others use pure water soaking followed by exposure to sun. Others may recommend flushing crystals with running water. But the most effective way practiced by Asian crystal stores and Feng Shui Bestbuy is cleansing them using the chi-refreshing "singing bowl".
Then the next step is the process of harmonizing and integrating the changes into your whole being.
We must be conscious of this when we work with one or several crystals for healing purposes. Take some time off each day to fine tune our thought patterns through breathing exercises and visualisation with crystals. One will obtain great power from doing so.
The crystal will undergo tremendous adjustments to your energy field, matching it with a larger outer universal energy field. The vibrations will continue to affect areas of imbalance, restoring a positive state in its place. You may notice physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies come into alignment. Your face looks more relaxed and your mental feelings may change significantly. All aspects of your energy will be activated and will result in positive feeling.
Placing crystals in the home, in the office or in any place one spends time, may provide the atmosphere of peace and harmony. Many have found that the presence of crystals in their home changed the whole energy of the house. Couples become more loving, children study harder and income increasing from time to time. Displaying six smooth crystal balls in the center of your living room smoothens the flow of energy, ensuring purification and everything goes smoothly in your life. Some prefer eight crystal spheres to enhance wealth, friendship and networking. Many businesses keep citrine clusters to improve their income. Bachelors would choose rose quartz, while family devoted people would choose amethyst to improve all areas of their lives.
Today, most crystals are carved for feng shui use in the form of spheres. Solid crystal spheres are highly prized because of the powerful earth element at its most perfect and most pure. The circular shape represents completeness and an infinity of space. Together, they symbolize the realization of all possibilities. They have been acknowledged by many old feng shui masters as creating a broad spectrum of good fortune vibrations.
Many feng shui symbols had also been married together with crystals to amplify the potent effects. Skillful craftsmen had carved the calabash, the period 8's fortune mystical knot, feng shui celestial animals and statues of wealth gods out of genuine crystals. Feng Shui symbols crafted out of crystals are undisputedly very auspicious and exerts powerful forces to deflect illness, evil and bad luck.
