Crystal Meanings

Here is your chance to find the vibrational healing properties of the minerals that go into mineral makeup. Rocks, crystals and stones are aggregates of minerals. Minerals are solid elemental compounds with their own atomic structures. Although the healing stones look serene and unmoving, they all have an internal atomic vibration. Each one has an atom as their heart, and the atom is dynamic with its particles dynamically rotating around it. This is real science! Healing crystals are composed of interlocking minerals. The different mineral compositions sound and look scary, but each has their vibrational quality that has a special meaning which is what gives the crystal its energy.

Halides:contain halogens. Halogens are fluorine, chlorine, bromine and iodine. These combine with other elements to form minerals. Fluorite is one of these healing stones.

Sulfides and Sulfosalts: are chemical compounds in which sulfur has combined with metallic or semi metallic elements. Angelite and selenite are a sulfide healing stones.

Hydroxides: form when a metallic element combines with water and hydroxyl (OH).

Carbonates: are compounds in which one or more metallic or semi metallic elements are combined with the carbonate radical. Malachite is a carbonate healing stone.

Nitrates: are compounds in which one or more metallic elements combine with the nitrate radical.

Borates: are formed when metallic elements combine with the borate radical. A healing stone in this catagory is ulexite.

Rock Formations

There are three kinds of special rock formations which include Igneous, Metamorphic and Sedimentary. Click on the stone name for its crystal meaning.

. Igneous rocks are crystallized from cooled molten lava. It is a silicate melt which may contain many or few silicon, oxygen, aluminum, iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, titanium and magnesium elements. These combinations result in different colors and textures that result in many healing stone combinations. Known healing igneous stones include dumortieriteobsidian, peridot, idocrase, epidote, serpentine and aventurine.

Igneous Rock found in Santoroni, Greece (from wiki):

. Metamorphic rocks are reformed rocks due to different extreme heats and pressures. They are the alterations of pre-existing crystallized rocks. They have their own structure, grain size, healing properties and mineral contents. Clay minerals, quartz, mica, feldspar and chlorite can be found in these types of rocks, and healing stones rhodonite, tiger iron, epidote and kyanite forms inside this rock.

. Sedimentary rocks are formed layers from erosion and transportation of pre-existing rocks and contain their own healing properties. They may contain fossils which you will not or rarely find in the above two rock formations. Amorphous, extraterrestial crystals moldavite and tektite are sedimentary type rock. Amorphous botanical crystal amber also belongs in this catagory. Triclinic stones considered sedimentary is turquoise and heliotrope (bloodstone). Amorphous systems have their own lifestyle meaning.
