Using crystals for divination, healing and self-reflection has become more and more popular recently, but this metaphysical practice has ancient roots. Since around the beginning of recorded history all the way through contemporary pop culture, crystals have been close to the heart of human spirituality.
Crystal practitioners have long believed that crystals have the ability to change your luck, heal your ailments, cleanse your energy and even set you on a path to greatness. The ancient Romans and Greeks used them to decorate their homes and places of worship, as well as to adorn their bodies, all with the belief that exposure to these special stones could improve their lot in life.
Many people today use them for healing, intention-setting, meditation or to help control the energy in their homes. It's also common practice nowadays to wear crystals or carry them in a pocket or bag to help protect or nourish the spirit.
