family clusterCrystal Healing  workshop
by Peggy Jentoft
           This list as offered as  information and folk tradition.
The Crystals and their Deva are living beings. When your intuition suggests a different purpose for a stone than is listed in guides go with your intuition .  While stone properties lists can be a useful guide Each individual situation is different  do not linit yourself to traditional choices for healing stones and crystals.   It is beyond the scope of this   page to mention  more than   a few  crystals.  I am not a doctor or medical  consultant. Crystal healing is a complementary practice to be used to support traditional medical treatment.  The chakra pages  have some gemstones which are traditional for working with each chakra.
Agate: Balances and harmonizes the Yin - Yang, male - female energy and works to balance the   physical being with the  etheric ,emotional, mental and causal bodies of the aura. Also for transmutation,  acceptance, stomach issues . Providing for Grounding, strength, courage, healing,  There are many different kinds and colors of  agate which each have specialized gifts.
Agate is innately a great grounding stone. All agates whatever the kind, color and other properties are grounding. Agate is a great choice for those who may find the Black stones often suggested for this to be too oppressively grounding. Agate will ground without weighing the spirit down in any way. This grounding facility is in addition to the other properties of the particular agate. The grounding functions of the agates are of great value when working with those forms for the more spiritual, esoteric, purposes as agate will allow you to soar and transcend while maintaining a "land line" so to speak.
mossagateAGATE/MOSS - Emotional priorities, mental priorities, colon,  circulatory, pancreas & pulses, blood sugar balance, agriculture. All purpose healing  connection with nature and forest spirits   Typically with green moss inside.

AmazoniteAmazonite : Helps calm the emotions and soothes the nerves, lung problems  helps the throat and heart chakra. a  blue green or turquoise colored stone   solar plexus centers, healing. throat, thyroid, nerve and brain conditions , reduce self damaging behavior, addictions, posture ,increases  clarity and insight. peace  and calm,   aligns the physical and astral bodies, a general all purpose healing stone, may help with Motor Neuron disease and other similar progressive diseases ,health maintenance, pinched nerves, spinal difficulties , for bursitis.  communication, prophecy , truth self esteem. I "get" Amazonite also as a thymus chakra stone,this is  the emerging chakra at a deeper level between the heart and throat chakra which has to do with integrating ourselves into the whole and recognizing the innate divinity of alll things.  It is a chakra of higher commpassion. Amazonite does have to so with owning your own power embracing spirit.

 I admit to a huge weakness for any and all of the aqua colored stones. I just found out that no Amazonite has ever been found near the Amazon river but since this stone was known to the ancient Egptians Ithough maybe the name refered to the Amazon Warriors of Greek legend amazonite is called a stone of marriage so that would probably not be . Soothing ,strengthening, thinking ,balancing creativity etc.  The funny thing which may say too much about our society even among the "officially" spiritually focused people is that because Amozonite is more common and is available more inexpensivelythan many of the other blue green stones it is kind of looked down on by some.Some Metaphysical leaders among crystal healing folk almost ignore it in favor of the rare Gem silica etc. To me the message is that even when you actively seek the treasure of spiritual wisdom you may idnore it in favor of some far awy perfect precious thing when all along the true treasure is at your feet or close at hand.
amber Amber: This fossil resin, (tree sap) is most often golden yellow or brown, it promotes healing by transmuting negative   energy into positive energy it is calming and cheering.  Promotes active  intellect in  harmony with love and compassion in daily life. and helps to promote honesty and purify and clear  rooms.  Beneficial to the nervous system  and self healing.  Amber is one of the stones that is often imitated or reconstituted or altered so one must be very careful when buying it. Who can resist the frozen honey and golden light of AMBER ? it is natures stone  and the stone of ancient memories and connection with the animal and plant spirits  it is a stone of fluidity echoed in the flow patterns of the pertrified tree sap.One of the Sun stones a power bringer in a  way amber embodies the elements Fire Because Amber will burn  and is the essense of   light, warmthand flame, Earth, because it is the pretrified product of ancient trees  existing because of natural growth, water because sap is the equivalent of blood and the river of life in a tree as water is the essense of life to the land and air because of the fragrance  memories preserved within the flesh of the stone.
Amber is a stone which is a great All purpose and general  healer and is traditionally called upon for treatment of  a great number of diseases and conditions. I wore Amber for a long time and it did seem to help me with heart issues both emotional and physical, It did not however seem to have any effect on my varicose veins, another condition for which it is often listed.

Amber has long been used for treating stubborn infections and inflammations.
I have added it to a grid and made  a pouch  for pain particularly back pain   and surgical / post surgical recovery.

Amber is perhaps the first stone I ever "worked "with. I can't have been more than four. My grandmother had a long strand of amber beads which I was told would be mine when I grew up. Apparently when I was measured someone must have said that I "grew up" because I went and retrieved the necklace from where it was kept, took it outside and apparently " gave it to the fairies" taking it apart ( it may have broken) and scattering the beads in the garden and in the creek in back of grandmothers' house. Grandma was actually pretty mellow about it but my mom was really mad!
Amber is often faked  or manipulated so please be alert when selecting  amber .

A very useful all purpose healing crystal  and good for  meditation calms  and allows higher perception gentle,  increase common sense,  
The cool violet purity of this stone may not effectively maintain sobriety(as legend holds) but it does in a way embody a seriousness Purple is Passion and Royalty and Amethyst invokes those energies of empowerment and entitlement. Violet/purple is one of the intence healing and purifying colors so amethyst is a great part of personal cleansing and empowerment / purification rituals . Bathing with Amethyst   has the cleansing spiritually effect without the potential for increasing nervousness that occasionly happens when purple color is added to the water or intense color treatment with purple.

Chrysocolla allows us to connect with our subconscious wisdom. It releases impairing emotions without the kind of violent emotional catharsis triggered by some other stones.   It is toxic because of copper content but it is a luscious lovely pretty stone. Do have to be alert for chysocolla that has been dyed to be more deeply blue. I love the way this is both a very grounded stone and a very etherial and celestial stone. This comes in an opaque form and a more translucent or even transparent form which is a combination with Chalcidony  often called gem silica which has become rather pricey but a small bit found its way to me as part of a Malichite, Azurite, Chysocolla end slice and broke off. The Emerging Thymus Chakra, midway between the heart and the throat chakra is resonant with this color and stone. this is an excellent stone for pain relief and dealing with PMS and other menstral issues.

It is  a money stone and can be placed in the purse, cash box with financial papers or in the abundance corner (Fung Shui) of the house. : Citrine corresponds to the solar plexus chakra.  Citrine is a stone of will, prosperity, intellect and optimism. It is a broad based Tonic stone for total health and a healing companion that dissolves and transmutes negative energies without absorbing them. Citrine may be effective for treating and easing the symptoms of Fibromyalgia and similar chronic conditions because it promotes deep healing, removes energetic fibers and mucus which serves as a template for the disease and promotes stability and and strength as well as being a mood elevator and enhancing personal power on all levels of being and can promote the ability to take needed actions. Natural Citrine is essential for the most effective work on this condition. Heat treated Citrine simply will not carry the full range of true Citrine frequencies and is no where as effective as natural Citrine for this work.. Natural Citrine may be less physically attractive, harder to find and more expensive than heat treated amethyst that has been turned bright yellow with heat but it is well worth the extra effort to find.

I do not often have access to physical diamonds in my work but have often run the Diamond shakti energy  and worked with the Diamond Deva  when compromised immune systems  were at issue as with HIV positive people and people who have had major organ transplants.

Diamond is a functional support and contributes positive energy in great quantity  for bone alignment issues to the point of producing seeming miracles in some cases. One client  had  a condition which caused bone deformation in her legs  when she was a small child  and another fractured a vertebra. both have recovered remarkably   and we do feel that diamond energy was a factor  in these healings. Diamond also steps forward for cases of Scoliosis.

Many spells and meditations for finding, keeping and being able to give and receive love call upon the energies of Emerald.  Emeralds are great for helping with mental and emotional clarity and sometimes are used in a spell bag for court magic when seeking justice to ensure that truth is seen and justice prevails. You would only use emerald for court magick when you were sure of your causes honesty and rightness and that justice should be on your side.

Emerald a great stone for heart related issues and in those traditions that keep green as the premier Healing color Emerald is THE great healing stone and also the mender of wounded hearts . All true Emerald is flawed there are no perfect flawless emeralds.

Each crystal whether a single point or a cluster is an individual with its own story and mission. One crystal may move through the hands of many people and share information and energy with each and for each have a completely unique sharing. Some Laugh at the idea of consciousness in the crystal and the consciousness of the stone is different than how we ephermal illusions of embodied humans experience it. One single crystal may give one person an instant of joy, of discovery one person the promise of abundance, another a vision that may explain to that person their own history in terms of eternity then pass to a child to offer laughter and calm, may then be held in passing by some one who needs and receives healing , then move to another child and awaken her gift of seeing and hearing the spirits teaching one the value of gifting along the way and another of science and form, then be given to comfort the grieving at a deathbed and from from there move on to gift and bring light and healing or meditations focus to many other for here as this single crystal which once I held passes from person to 
person. All the crystal that have come out to be among us may have as many and more stories and missions and healings to share.

Rhodenite:  is a salmon pink often with black areas works with the practical aspects of our feelings and has a greater grounding effect than other pink stones, Helps expression of  confidence , love , calms , protects against   nightmares, eases stress, heals the emotional pain of  loss , said to assist healing and acceptance of hearing problems   and enhances vocalizations such as  chanting, toning , singing ,mantras. increases optimism. Can help us in  becoming aware of suppressed feelings and thoughts  which impede us from living in unconditional love and calmness.

Rhodocrosite: often  a banded stone, helps improve self image and self worth helps mental & emotional balance,  loving stone for heart center, helps with giving and receiving love,  for loneliness,  fear, insecurities, self-forgiveness.  Rhodochrosite is a premier love stone, bringing love and compassion into relationships this is also a stone which promotes divine love and self acceptance. A more grounding stone than many stones used as love stones Rodochrosite helps keep love real and supports deeper relationships that endure beyond the first blush of infatuation.

For years I just was not very interested or attracted to Rhodochosite, it never called out or spoke to me. It just was a more solid love stone than called out to me I worked more with Rose Quartz , Kunzite and jade.

Sometimes a person would come over and be drawn to work with the piece or two I had Other than holding one stone occasionally because it carried some memories of someones' sea side stroll and was one of the easiest stones to demonstrate clear and restore functions with I left it alone. Over the last year and a half Rhodochrosite has more actively come into my life. I got the call from three lovely pink CRYSTALS, then a lovely free form cabochon and a small holed piece came with an expanded healing set . The crystals are deeply healing and cheerful in their energy .Quite different in feeling and personality than the massive ( type not size) stones I'd always encountered before.   I think one of the reasons they have come forward now is because my youngest daughter has passed through the active healing of her fractured 4th Lumbar vertebre but sometimes has pain in her leg and back from the minor nerve damage that did occur . The Rhodochrosite in all its forms has been dramaticaly effective for ending pain and is very soothing whether we do actual layng on or use holding one ofthe remote methods. We are also working with these stones on bringing stability to some relationships and to deal with some transitions in everyones lives

Tiger's Eye is one of the most well known stones for grounding and protection, The shimmering patterns of golds and browns in yellow or golden tigers eye are evocative of the warm stable energy of the Earth. These stones are grounding in a warm substantial way that bring us into harmony with the Earth and the Animal and nature at harvest and rest as in Summers' end and Autumn. Tigers' Eye gives us a sense of security and abundance with its stable and honest and confident energies.

 Blue Tigers Eye is  a great de-stressing stone, I guess it is grounding and it definitely does help with intuition and psychic development . I think of this as an "age of aquarius" and Mercury stone, even if that is not an official corespondence. There is something about BTE that contributes to the ability to remain calm while dealing with many different complex tasks . It is a stone I sometimes call on when I need to finish an article or work my way through a legal document. To me there is something about it that facillitates the translation of mystic and obscure information into clear more easily understood form. Blue Tigers eye also feels very sophisticated to me, evocative of the ambiance of an evening in Paris or some romantic jazz age rendezvous.

Emotional warmth is addressed by its ability to improves and facilitate sociability. Vanadinite also helps conserve energy and enhance the function of the lungs.
