earlier use was for healing and spiritual ritual. Their value as concentrated wealth came into play at a much later time. Although gems were rare and exhibited great beauty, the reason they were so precious was the power they imparted to their wearers. They are storehouses of power that may be transmitted through contact with oneÂ´s body. Kings and queens would have gemstones set in their crowns to obtain their potencies. They connected the monarchs with forces enabling them to rule guided by cosmic energies. Priests of different religions used gems in rings for similar reasons. Gems exhibit their power in a beneficial or detrimental way depending on how they are used.
Ancient cultures used gems and sound vibration to direct the subtle forces of nature. The occult power of gems is said to have caused natural calamities by improper usage, such as the destruction of Atlantis. They are said to have been the catalyst for moving the great, huge blocks of stone used to build the pyramids of Egypt.
The inherent powers of gemstones are recognized by modern science in the technological uses of crystals in watches, lasers, and computers, but the more subtle potencies, such as their ability to promote physical healing in the body, and their power to help balance human emotions, elude discovery by modern science.
