As mentioned earlier, crystal usage for both decorative and healing purposes was discovered in various cultures at the same time. The next place we draw our attention to is India, where the Ayurvedic medicine used crystals for healing both emotional and metaphysical imbalances. Of course, we all know that the Indian culture differs greatly from the European, Chinese or other ones, which only makes its passages about crystals even more fascinating. The power of these crystals was carefully documented in the Hindu Vedas, where each stone’s specific healing abilities were duly mentioned. Ayurvedic researches have performed studies on what effects different stones have upon the human body. In the Indian culture, planets are also involved in the process: each planet has a corresponding color and wavelength that resonates with each gemstones’ vibration. Planetary vibrations are considered negative, while those coming from a precious stone are found to be positive, mostly balancing each other out. Gems thus protected humans from the adverse effects of individual planets, balancing their energies and improving overall life. One particular Vedic text, the Garuda Purana, provides lots of details on gemstone usage.
