The Crystal Gallery at Tequila Bay features an extensive collection of crystals including museum quality crystals from around the world. Crystals can mean different things to different people. To some they represent beautiful works of art by God created naturally in the earth. To others they are valuable tools in the field of electronics. They also assist healing arts practitioners in clearing energy patterns. Native Americans use crystals in sacred ceremonies. Others simply use crystals for meditations. The actual history of crystals has been surrounded by much mystery and magic.
Legends and folklore dating back to the beginning of the human race, suggests that crystal forces set the electromagnetic field of the earth so that human souls could incarnate. Atlantis legends claim that crystals generated power for entire cities, and it was the abuse of these energies that eventually destroyed the Atlanta civilization. Egyptologists speculate that the Egyptian pyramids were capped with crystals to channel cosmic forces into the geometric sculptures. Many civilizations and cultures throughout time have used crystals for a variety of purposes. Native Americans, Indian sages, Aztecs, Celts, Egyptians, Shamans and Mystics, have all recognized the energy and powers of Crystals.
Quartz crystals are formed deep in the earth and are made up of silica and oxygen. Quartz represents over 27% of the earths surface, but is only mined in Brazil, Madagascar, and Arkansas. Quartz is “piezo-electric, a term derived from the Greek word meaning ‘to press”, that is, when it is subjected to stress, it develops an electrical charge on the surface. Quartz responds in a “regulated vibratory pattern”, when stimulated electronically or by pressure. This is why Quartz is used in watches to keep time. Some people can actually feel the energy form the crystals. This can be explained scientifically by “piezoelectricity”. Crystals can shatter, but they are still hard enough to cut glass. On a scale of harness, Talc is a 1, a diamond is a 10, and a quartz crystal is a 7.
Quartz is considered a semi precious stone, however because it is to transmit modify and transform the flow of electricity, it is used in electronic technology to make computer chips, radio transmitters and clocks. In the hands of a trained healer, crystals can transmit energy, absorb negative energy patterns, transmit knowledge and create healing energy.
The Human aura is an electro-magnetic energy field surrounding each of us and reflects the conditions of ones mental, emotional and physical and spiritual bodies. Crystals have the ability to transform disorder energy when worn, carried or placed near the body and to purify and balance these energies.
Crystals placed in the home environment will neutralize and protect you from lower negative energies. Their vibration frequency can restore balance to any environment.
Crystals will amplify whatever thoughts you send through them. Many spiritual healers, teachers and acupuncturists use crystals in addition to other techniques to amplify their natural healing energies and intentions. Crystals are more commonly used to help one focus, amplify and transform energy for meditation and improve psychic and intuitive abilities.
