Egypt is widely considered one of the birthplaces of modern civilization. So many of our beliefs, traditions, and knowledge can be traced back to this nation, and our passion for healing crystals is a prime example. From burying their deceased with pieces of quartz on their forehead to Pharaohs wearing quartz cylinders to balance energies, Egyptians were strong believers in the powers these crystals possess. Isis, the goddess of the sky, was also worshiped by wearing crushed Lapis Lazuli stones by the country's most powerful and influential women – like Cleopatra. Of course, there are many other popular gemstones we must mention. Malachite was used to promote inner vision and was generally seen as a stone of wisdom. Traces of malachite were found on the headdresses of pharaohs, which had the role of enlightening the wearer to rule wisely over Egypt.
