The traditional classification in the West, which goes back to the Ancient Greeks, begins with a distinction between precious and semi-precious stones; similar distinctions are made in other cultures. In modern usage the precious stones are diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald, with all other gemstones being semi-precious. This distinction reflects the rarity of the respective stones in ancient times, as well as their quality: all are translucent with fine color in their purest forms, except for the colorless diamond, and very hard, with hardnesses of 8–10 on the Mohs scale.
Anything and everything is a potential healer. To understand this, it is important to first have some sense of how the natural holistic healing process works. First off, when we speak about the body, we are including the subtle bodies (i.e. the physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual bodies). Some things are obvious, and some things are subtle (less obvious). "Subtle bodies" is just another way of referring to the experience that surrounds your thoughts, feelings, nuances, and emotions.
Other stones are classified by their color, translucency and hardness. The traditional distinction does not necessarily reflect modern values, for example, while garnets are relatively inexpensive, a green garnet called Tsavorite, can be far more valuable than a mid-quality emerald.
In modern times gemstones are identified by gemologists, who describe gems and their characteristics using technical terminology specific to the field of gemology. The first characteristic a gemologist uses to identify a gemstone is its chemical composition. For example, diamonds are made of carbon (C) and rubies of aluminium oxide (Al2O3). Next, many gems are crystals which are classified by their crystal system such as cubic or trigonal or monoclinic. Another term used is habit, the form the gem is usually found in. For example diamonds, which have a cubic crystal system, are often found as octahedrons.
Anything with an inherent harmony can act like a tuning fork to our poor patterns and challenge us to retune ourselves to return to the original organic natural patterns of energy that belong to our bodies. A good piece of art can work wonders, as well as music, dance, a pleasant person, or anything else exhibiting integrity in terms of energy patterns. Anything can heal us if we are open to suggestion by external tuning fork of another's harmony. Receptivity is a necessity. Being open to it is the key.
Gemstones are classified into different groups, species, and varieties. For example, ruby is the red variety of the species corundum, while any other color of corundum is considered sapphire. Another example are the Emerald (green), aquamarine (blue), red beryl (red), goshenite (colorless), heliodor (yellow), and morganite (pink), which are all varieties of the mineral species beryl.
Gemstones radiate pure patterns. Gemstones resonate with unmatched consistency. Gemstones sing their incredible songs of structure, balance, wavelength and frequency and can bring us back into harmony. Raw energy establishes patterns on an initial primal scale when it takes the form of subatomic particles. These particles combine and cooperate to produce atoms, molecules and minerals. Mother Nature ushers forth all that is possible in the natural world, building up its complexity from the mineral kingdom to the plant kingdom and on to the animal kingdom. As human beings, our bodies are an incredible and complex masterpiece of nature's organization and balance.
Gems are characterized in terms of refractive index, dispersion, specific gravity, hardness, cleavage, fracture, and luster. They may exhibit pleochroism or double refraction. They may have luminescence and a distinctive absorption spectrum. Material or flaws within a stone may be present as inclusions.
Plants also have their healing properties. They too perform a special magic in terms of reminding the body of harmonic patterns in regards to fluidity and flow. There energy is a moving one, while gemstones remain relatively the same and whose patterns are incorruptible. Each has its place. Herbal remedies are more connected to the sophistication of feelings with their fluid nature. Gemstones are more suited to tune the inherent pattern and are a reliable and consistent source of pure frequency and pattern. How does all this work on our bodies?
Nature repeats itself over and over again. Once it finds a pattern that works, it builds on it. Every kingdom and species less complex than our human form is in a sense a testing field for patterns and systems that work. We are all us, the entire natural world built with the same patterns—the same materials. This is how we can heal each other. The patterns are the same, yet the integrity can falter. Getting close to beings with a high integrity is good for us, and helps us to align to that integrity.
Each stone resonates with a slightly different pattern geometrically. These same geometric patterns reside in our systems, organs, etc. To hold a Rose Quartz up to our heart is to ask the structural patterns active in our subtle bodies to align themselves and operate effortlessly and with purity. Any unresolved heart issues will be challenged to break up, allowing us to let go of whatever is distorting our energies. One often experiences a flash of imagery around the past experience that initially caused the distortion.
Gemstones are living creatures. They are active participants in nature. Protons, neutrons and electrons are flying around in an absolute bliss of balance and participation, upholding patterns of sacred geometry. Yes, geometry is sacred because nothing could be built in the natural world without it. Biology is math. Nature is an exploration of possibility through patterns that work in balance, creating the living, behaving, and interactive world that we all live in—in and through.
Healing is often a matter of recovering our bodies inherent harmony by letting go of what we are holding onto— our own ideas about how, where, when, what and why—mental frameworks that have us behaving in inorganic ways. Our organic ways are right there to be expressed and experienced effortlessly. Mother Nature takes care of it all, if we can only learn to respect her and surrender to her wisdom—the wisdom of spontaneity, joy, accepting all others as equal, and together sharing in her abundance.
Gemstones may also be classified in terms of their "water". This is a recognized grading of the gem's luster and/or transparency and/or "brilliance". Very transparent gems are considered "first water", while "second" or "third water" gems are those of a lesser transparency.
Keep in mind that our entire bodily system is nothing more than energy that shows up in various patterns and densities. Our thoughts and our feelings are connected to our physical bodies and have a density of their own. We are all built pretty much the same. Diversity has its place, and we are all individuals, yet nature created patterns that work the same in all of us to keep our hearts beating, our blood flowing, and so on. When these patterns of energy work together in a balanced way then we experience our health.
Another unscientific term for semi-precious gemstones used in art history and archaeology is hardstone. Use of the terms 'precious' and 'semi-precious' in a commercial context is, arguably, misleading in that it deceptively implies certain stones are intrinsically more valuable than others, which is not the case.
These patterns can be disrupted. When this happens we experience poor health. This can be anything from a headache to the worst that you can imagine in terms of poor health, even disease. Hence the popular splitting of the word (dis-ease) for harmony feels good and disharmony doesn't. Balance is easy on us, and imbalances feel not at ease, or dis-eased. Nature will heal itself if it can. It will if we let it. It is ourselves who distort this harmony with our lop-sided outlooks and behavior. Correcting this lop-sidedness one way or another is what healing is all about. Healing it in a natural way is much preferred.

The Chakra System
<p>Chakra is a word that comes from the Sanskrit and its meaning is 'wheel', and if you could see the chakras they would manifest themselves as a whirling wheel in the physical body. Some people can see chakras and they do describe the chakras as such, turning wheels of energy. In these wheels the various levels of consciousness cross or meet each other. With the meaning "wheel" in mind you could compare these energy centres as a set of cogwheels that make sure that the whole is in working order. When one of these cogwheels drags or if it is broken, the whole will not operate as intended, and to 'repair' the cogwheel colour therapy can be used.
The psychologist C. G. Jung called the chakras the portals to consciousness, and this is an excellent way to describe these centres of energy in the body, especially if you know how they work. By rotating energy is attracted, and given off, and you can compare the chakras to receiving stations or transformators, that take up the prana, the live energy, and divide it up in the body. On a physical level chakras correspond with the endocrine glands and nerve knots. You could also call the chakras the organs of the energetic body. Every chakra has its own connection, association and meaning. Balancing the chakras leads to good health.
When a chakra doesn't function by not taking up enough energy, or by taking up too much energy, a disharmony in the chakra system will come into existence, which can eventually lead to illness. Often the illness is manifested in the area or an organ in the body at the spot where the chakra that isn't functioning correctly is located.
The main chakras are located along the middle of the spinal cord and the vertical column that you see when all chakra's are aligned is called sushumna, the energy travelling upwards is called ida and the energy travelling downwards is called pingala. These two energy streams twist around the sushumna that functions as a central axis.
You can see this as the two snakes that are entwined around the staff of the healer, the symbol of the healer, the cadeceus, therefore can be seen as the symbol of life energy.
You can compare these energy centres as a set of cogwheels that make sure that the whole is in working order.
When one of these cogwheels drags or if it is broken, the whole will not operate as intended, and to 'repair' the cogwheel various therapies can be used.
The chakras correspond with colours, tones and other processes. The seven main chakras correspond with the seven colours of the rainbow and the electromagnetic spectre.
Blockages in the chakras can be healed by exposing them to the energy waves of:
<li> Bach Flower Remedies</li>
<li> Scented Oils (Aroma therapy)</li>
<p>But how do you know where a blockage is in your chakra system? If you are ill at the moment, it is obvious there is a blockage somewhere.
You can track these blockages by using a pendulum for example. Take the pendulum in your hand and put your other hand on the root chakra. Connect to your higher self and look at the motion that the pendulum makes.
Do the same for all chakras and if there is a change in motions you make a note of it. If your pendulum hardly moves at all, the chakra does not take up much energy or no energy at all, and if it moves in large uncontrolled motions the chakra probably takes up too much energy.
You can solve the disharmony in the chakras by the laying on of stones. As soon as frequencies higher and more pure than the level of the chakra at that moment, the chakra will start to vibrate faster and the slower frequencies of the blockages will slowly be dissolved. The prana streaming in, will charge the etherical body and the etherical body on its turn gives off the energy to the physical body. The prana also streams into the emotional and mental bodies and because of this any blockages there will also be dissolved, because the vibrations there are slower than the energy streaming in. Eventually the life energy is flowing through all nadis (the etherical veins that distribute the prana in the body), of the energy system and body, mind and soul are vibrating to a higher frequency and health and joy will be increased.
During this process of purification of the chakras and the energy system you may feel uneasy, irritated and/or tired. The same experiences that caused the blockages in the first place, your fears, pain or anger, can come to surface during this process, just like the physical ailments just before they are purified away entirely. As soon as the energy ways are cleared, you will feel better, happier and more clear.
The body is built up out of seven major chakras and a few secondary chakras. The major chakras and their corresponding colours are:
Chakra - Colour
7. Crown Chakra - Purple
6. Brow Chakra - Indigo
5. Throat Chakra - Blue
4. Heart Chakra - Green
3. Solar Plexus - Yellow
2. Sexual Chakra - Orange
1. Root Chakra - Red
<p>The main chakras have been depicted as lotus flowers for centuries, and each of the chakras resonates with another frequency in the body and corresponds with a unique colour that is visible in the prism or rainbow. Although the seven main chakras are not physically visible in the body for most of us, they are undisputedly connected to our lives and our endocrine system. The endocrine system consists of a series of glands that take care of the production of hormones in our body. A disharmony in one of these glands will cause major health problems. The impact that an illness of one of these endocrine glands has on your life and health is unfortunately still underestimated by many.
The Root chakra is called Muladhara in Sanskrit. The meaning of Muladhara is 'root' or 'support'. The Root chakra is depicted as a four leafed lotus with a square in its centre in which a triangle facing downward is depicted.
This chakra is situated at the end of the spinal cord at the tail-bone in the back and the pubic bone in the front. The first chakra corresponds with the glandulae suprarenales. (Sorry for the Latin term, my dictionary lacks medical terms in English) The Root chakra is associated with survival and safety. All that you have achieved in the material world is derived from the energy of the first chakra. The life lesson this chakra teaches us is standing up for oneself.
When this chakra is blocked you may feel frightened, paranoid, insecure and frustrated. Physical problems that coincide with a blockage in this chakra are: obesity, anorexia nervosa, sore knees, arthritis, hip problems, problems of the lower back, the glandulae suprarenales, the spinal cord and the reproductive organs.
The Sacral chakra is also called the Belly chakra or Sex chakra, its original Sanskrit name is Svadisthana. The meaning of Svadisthana is 'sweetness' or 'amiable'. The Sacral chakra is depicted as a six leafed lotus containing a white circle that in turn contains a pale blue moon crescent and within the crescent a crocodile with fish tail (the makara) is found.
This chakra is situated in the lower belly, between the navel and the sex organs. The second chakra corresponds with the ovaries in the female and the testicles in the male in the endocrine system. Although opinions vary with reference to the male sex organs and the second chakra, it is usually accepted that the male sex organs are also connected to the Sacral chakra. Others say that the male sex organs are situated in the Root chakra. The Sacral chakra is connected to sexuality and emotions. It is the centre where your taste for certain things are developed, as well as self development and creative expression. The life lesson this chakra has to teach us is how to reveal motives.
When this chakra is blocked you may feel manipulated, lack concentration and be oversensitive. Also an exaggerated sexual impulse or the opposite, no sexual impulses are problems that come from a blockage in this chakra. Physical problems that are connected to a blockage in this chakra are: kidney failure, bladder and large intestine problems, but also frigidity, nymphomania and diseases of the uterus, ovaries, prostate and testicles. Also food allergies and intolerances are related to this chakra.
The Navel chakra is also called the Solar Plexus, its original Sanskrit name is Manipura. Manipura means 'sparkling jewel'. The Navel chakra is depicted as a ten leafed lotus flower enclosing an inverted triangle with on all three sides a swastika, the swastika is the Hindu symbol for the fire element. Sometimes the Hindu God of the Fire, Agni, is also integrated into the picture, as his avatar the Ram.
This chakra is situated between the twelfth breast vertebra and the first lumbar vertebra, near the belly button. The third chakra is connected to the pancreas in the endocrine system. The Solar Plexus is the seat of the personality, the ego, and the will power, this chakra controls our contacts, relationships and emotional relations, but also astral travel and spiritual growth. The life lesson this chakra has to offer is that it is worthwhile taking risks and gives one self confidence and self respect.
If this chakra is blocked you may feel insecure, but also depressed and worry about other people's opinions. Physical problems that are connected to a blockage in this chakra are: digestion problems, diabetes, food allergies, gall bladder problems, but also insomnia and irritability are connected to a blocked Solar Plexus.
The Heart chakra is called Anahata in Sanskrit. The literal translation of Anahata is 'unbeaten' or 'sound made without two items slammed together'. The Heart chakra is depicted as a lotus flower with twelve leaves that contain a six pointed star (Salomon's seal). The six pointed star consists of two triangles and symbolises the balance between body and mind.
This chakra is situated behind the breast bone on the front of the body and between the shoulder blades on the back of the body. The fourth chakra is connected to the thymus gland in the endocrine system. The Heart chakra stands for love and its life lesson is forgiveness and compassion towards others as well as towards oneself.
When this chakra is blocked you may be afraid to get hurt, feel sorry of yourself or deem yourself unworthy to receive love. Physical problems connected to a blockage in this chakra are: heart disease, high blood pressure, insomnia and respiratory problems.
The original Sanskrit name for the Throat chakra is Visshuda. Visshuda means 'purification' or 'cleansing'. The Throat chakra is depicted as a sixteen leafed lotus flower containing an inverted triangle that represents speech and in turn contains a full moon.
This chakra is situated between the third and fifth neck vertebra and opens towards the throat. The fifth chakra corresponds with the thyroid and parathyroids in the endocrine system.
