Crystals have been around for millions of years since the Earth was first formed. You can trace the use of crystal power and crystals back to our ancestors, while still showing-up in todays society. I always find crystals to be so intriguing, not just for its properties but for the air of magick surrounding them. When it comes to the subject of crystals, science and magick intersect. Science classifies matter as a form of energy and crystals are matter. Therefore, crystals are energy which coincides with magick stating that crystals give-off energy and influences energy. Every crystal vibrates at different frequencies and science has found that passing electrical current through a crystal reveals this. Radios were originally created using vibrating crystals and quartz watches use a vibrating quartz crystal to measure time.
