Throughout the ages they've been thought to enhance physic abilities and been used for healing and enlightenment.
See below for a TCPJ exclusive discount code to buy crystals from the Dutch online store Rock your World. First let's learn a little more. Made from silicon and oxygen two of the most common elements on earth, crystals could be considered some of the very building blocks of life.
Each crystal or gemstone has different properties associated with it, however people believe it's important to see which stone you are naturally drawn to.
Place different ones in the palm of your hand and see how it feels, or simply close your eyes and see which gemstone you gravitate towards.
Crystals or gemstones can be used when meditating, kept in your pocket, placed on your desk in the office or you can buy jewellery that you wear daily.
They are said to come into your life for a period of time. If you lose one then it's no longer meant to be with you. Someone who needs that crystal more will find it. This all adds to the enigma and mystery surrounding crystals.
