Crystal healing might seem like a newfangled wellness obsession among your friends and on social media. But the use of these semiprecious stones as a form of alternative therapy has been documented for thousands of years, dating back to ancient Sumerians and Egyptians.
Each crystal is said to have different metaphysical properties, with its own unique energies and vibrations that are believed to have healing, soothing and even love-attracting qualities. Celebs from Adele to Victoria Beckham are also said to be firm believers of crystal healing and its purported benefits.
