Adapted from The Complete Guide to Feng Shui Crystals, by Terri Perrin
Early works on astrology that date back to 400 BC make elaborate observations on the origin and power of natural crystals such as amethyst, hematite and quartz. Their effectiveness for healing, protection and decoration cannot be disputed and is documented in ancient Atlantis, South America, Egypt and Tibet.
Many schools of Feng Shui recommend the use of natural crystals and spheres as an energy enhancement because they characterize the earth element and, when cut to form the spherical shape, they are representative of the Universe and everything contained in it. So, when I mention feng shui ‘crystals’ to my clients, most people immediately think I am talking about crystals from the earth.
