In some solids, the arrangements of the building blocks (atoms and molecules) can be random or very different throughout the material. In crystals, however, a collections of atoms called the Unit Cell is repeated in exactly the same arrangement over and over throughout the entire material. Because of this repetitive nature, crystals can take on strange and interesting looking forms, naturally.
Crystal healing is a form of healing that uses crystals or gemstones. The crystals are mainly placed on specific areas of the body called "chakras" meaning spiritual energy. According to this teaching there are seven basic energy centers in the body, each having a color associated with it. Some crystal healers place the same color crystals as the color of the chakras on the person to enhance the flow of energy. Crystals are said to direct the flow of energy to the person in a particular part of the body and bring balance to a person's energy. Ultimately, they are used to cleanse the person from bad or negative energy believed to cause an illness. Clearing out the bad spiritual energy alleviates the physical ailment. Crystals are used for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. Additionally, crystals can be worn, placed next to a person's bed as they sleep, and in some cases placed around a person's bath. It is an alternative healing technique for strengthening the body and resolving issues and patterns using various forms of natural crystals. The earliest records of crystal healing have been traced in Ancient Egypt. India's Ayurvedic records and traditional Chinese medicine also claim healing with the use of crystals, dating back to 5000 years.
