Why has man been intrigued with shiny stones and gems, and why is it we want
to wear them at certain times of our lifes?

one??

CRYSTALS

Crystals are formed along energy lines found within the natural forces of
the earth itself. Even beyond the earth within the natural forces of the
cosmos itself. The stars you see about the earth at night and the other
planets also radiates lines of force. These lines litarally transverse the
earth itself and generates energy alon the meridian of these lines...It is
along these lines that crystals are formed in the natural state. So in
essence they are the energy of the cosmos itself.

Nature acts as a storehouse of energy. We have to learn to tap this
storehouse, if man were to know of the natural abilities of crystals. There
would not be any problems of energy shortages. Crystals are energy in
theirselves, in many different forms.

Crystals help with clairvoyence, generate energy, keep away nightmares. If
powdered it is good for swelling, heart disease, eye disease, fever,
intestinal problems. In Scotland it is the stone of victory..
