No detailed scientific explanations have been offered yet to show
how precious stones are able to rearrange and re-orient our negative
karmic patterns into positive patterns that can heal and improve
our lives. A full scientific understanding of the healing potential
of gems may well require an unusually wide scope of investigation,
ranging from the macrocosm of astrophysics to the microcosm of atomic
Gems, as intelligently grown crystal forms, share- by common design-
unique, patterned symmetries in their atomic lattices that contain
billions of atoms in geometric alignment. The precise structure
adopted by atoms when they link to form a crystal depends upon which
kinds of atoms are present at the time, which ones end up in the
crystal structure and the conditions (temperature, pressure etc)
which control the way they link together.
Gems are considered, by those who study Ayurveda, to have a particularly
potent and stable resonance of energy (consciousness) due to an
exceptionally free flow of energy from their geometrically aligned
atoms. This resonant energy has an obvious or subtle effect on the
mind (consciousness), depending on the individual wearing the gems.
They will vibrate at a new energy level only if they are exposed
to energy of their resonant frequency.
If we were to hypothesise that in the human body, there may be
a low or weakened degree of receptivity to a frequency of needed
cosmic radiation due to a variety of karmic reasons. In that case,
a gem that resonates at a frequency which is identical to that 'weak
link' in the individual's bio-electronic pattern could well be the
catalyst for a definite improvement in physical, psychological,
and spiritual health. We can infer that gems resonate to the needed
frequencies radiated by the planets and, hence, strengthen or retune
our weakened receptivity to these frequencies. Holistic practitioners
believe that disease is, generally, a symptom of lack, or excess,
of a particular form of energy. The correct balance of energy is
the remedy that seems to procure the greatest health.
