You might ask.

Is it just superstition or does wearing crystal necklace actually have benefits?

Many people do report feeling better and more relaxed when wearing one, and there is some scientific evidence to suggest that the gems and crystals may have certain therapeutic effects to our body, however, if you are the kind of person who believes seeing is believing, I may never convince you, because in order to fully explain my perspective, I need to introduce a different belief system.

The basis of energy healing is that everything in the universe is made up of energy, and everything vibrates at its own frequency. Many eastern traditions interpret that our physical body is only one crystalized layer of our whole being. Besides physical body, we have plasma body, etheric body, emotional body, etc. Those subtle bodies are interconnected with our physical body and their well-being will be directly manifested in our physical body. In another word, by keeping our subtle bodies in balance, we are able to keep our physical body healthy and free from disease. This world view is the basis of Eastern medicine since thousands of years ago.

Just like the rocks and water in our environment, crystals have their own subtle bodies and natural frequency as well. When we wear crystals close to our heart, their natural frequency will affect ours. It is like we are naturally tuning into a higher frequency and by doing so, it helps to clear, balance and heal our own energy system, and create a more harmonious state within us.

Although western medicine does not fully recognize or accept the existence of subtle bodies, it is gradually starting to warm up to the idea of energy and vibration playing a role in healing.

How to choose the right healing crystals for yourself or for somebody else?

When choosing healing crystals, it is important to consider the individual's needs and preferences. It is also important to take into account the particular crystals and gems that are known to be beneficial for the person's specific needs. For example, someone who is struggling with stress and anxiety might want to choose a necklace with blue topaz or clear quartz, while someone who is suffering from physical pain might want to try a necklace with smoky quartz or something in green like aventurine. If someone is focused on getting more love energy, rose quartz is a great choice.

It is very important to make sure the jewelry that you are buying is in fact a natural stone. The reason for this is that some brands have been using man-made material that looks like natural stones just for esthetic purposes. So, when you're looking to buy a healing crystals jewelry, make sure to ask the vendor if the product is made of natural stones. Synthetic stones will not offer the benefits at all, because it is totally different energy and vibration. Asking the seller to make sure the piece is 100% natural is always a good idea.
