METAPHYS. INFO

Do not get alarmed when you see this chapter on the metaphysical value of
crystals and gems. I am a geologist (scientist) and a lot of my valued customers
believe in the (healing) power of  what I am selling. My philosophy is, that if
somebody believes in something and it helps her or him in living a better life
and it does not harm anybody else, I accept that. So I wrote this compilation
about 20 years ago and I am sorry that I do not include references. These are
not my observations.

                LITHOTHERAPY a compilation by Rolf Brandt
         
If you look at or handle a crystal or gem, it does something to
you. You like it or you don't, which in itself proves that it
communicates with you. If you communicate with the crystal on the
same wavelength, you will appreciate it more and more. But it is
not only the good looks or comfort you derive by handling the
crystal which attracts us. We are also fascinated by the mysteries
surrounding our gems. Where do they come from, how were they
formed. Most crystals and gems we see today were formed in the
thin upper crust of our planet earth. Some, like diamonds, come
from deeper down. Raised temperatures and pressures play an
important role in their formation. Most crystals and gems grow out
of fluids rich in their constituent elements. The grow process may
take anything from a few minutes to a few thousand years. As in
human beings, the character of the crystals is very much dependant
on the immediate environment in which they grow. So, every crystal
or gem is an individual, which should be treated as such. How can
we "use" our precious earthlings? The metaphysical use is mainly
twofold: spiritual and physical. On the spiritual level there is
an interaction with your feelings and relationships. The physical
side concerns your physical well-being. In many instances of
course these uses are overlapping or interfingering. Some crystals
have inclusions such as tourmaline or rutile, others show phantoms
or gas bubbles. The metaphysical property of that crystal is the
sum of the properties of all the individual components.

I hope that the compilation in the following 6 chapters will guide you
through the metaphysical haloes surrounding the wonderful world of
crystals and gems. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to
approach me. Together we will find the answer.
By the way, I find the books of M. Gienger very good.
