I have always been a great believer in the beauty and power of stones, particularly crystals. I guess the first time my grandfather took me up in the attic and showed me his old “cat’s hair crystal radio” I have been fascinated by them. I figured if I could listen to Amos and Andy by touching that stupid cat hair to a particular spot on that crystal, hopefully you can see why I thought that crystal just had to have some kind of special something. Over the years I have I have seen crystals and stones used in healing, to release tension, restore health, etc. I met a veterinarian in Dallas, Oregon who was known all over the world for using crystals to heal and treat champion race horses. Last time I saw him was in Jordan where he has treating the horses in the king’s stables.
I have lost track of the number of chiropractors and osteopaths whom I have met, who use crystals and other stones in their treatment and practice. I have to admit that many of the town folk in some of those towns have looked on them as something akin to witch doctors when they first started practicing. Of course, there was the young lady years ago, when I was working in a rock shop in a town that will remain anonymous. She walked in and wanted a piece of a blue stone, but couldn’t remember what it was called. I just happened to have a piece of it. At that point she removed her blouse, and showed me the fragment of Kyanite nestled between….well, you get the picture. When I asked her why she wanted the stone she explained that she had been told that if she wore Kyanite she would not get pregnant. I sold her the sample she wanted and laughed all the way home. I wonder who convinced her of that?
