Crystals and their minerals occur naturally in the Earth. Everything on earth has a vibrational energy whether one can see or feel it or not. You don’t even have to believe in it, but it is there just like radio sound waves or light waves that create the color we see. Crystals and their minerals are natural conductors of healing energy. Their vibrations receive, project and reflect light. Each mineral is an individual component that contributes to a whole crystal. In make-up, each type of micronized mineral attributes a property that makes that make-up stand out in its crowd of natural color cosmetics. The minerals come in all colors. Each color has its own vibration and thus its own meaning. Many of the minerals contribute toward several different properties that give skin its healthy and rejuvenated look. It has a kind of homeopathy in it.
