GEMS
----

Why has man been intrigued with shiny stones and gems, and why is it we want to wear them at certain times of our lifes?

When you are buying a gem or stone for yourself, you may look at many until you find the one that feels right for you...What makes you pick a particular one??

CRYSTALS

Crystals are formed along energy lines found within the natural forces of the earth itself.  Even beyond the earth within the natural forces of the cosmos itself.  The stars you see about the earth at night and the other planets also radiates lines of force.  These lines litarally transverse the earth itself and generates energy alon the meridian of these lines...It is along these lines that crystals are formed in the natural state.  So in essence they are the energy of the cosmos itself.

Nature acts as a storehouse of energy.  We have to learn to tap this storehouse, if man were to know of the natural abilities of crystals.  There would not be any problems of energy shortages.  Crystals are energy in theirselves, in many different forms.

Crystals help with clairvoyence, generate energy, keep away nightmares.  If powdered it is good for swelling, heart disease, eye disease, fever, intestinal problems. In Scotland it is the stone of victory..

Apollo Sun Moon

DIAMOND

Brings fierceness, strength and fortitude.  Strengthens friendships and protects from evil, disease and plagues.  If set in gold it drives away night monsters...When stolen attracts negative vibrations.  Diamonds require cleaning often.
