Thomsonite 2


Olivine

And if someone can help me find the name of this one:

Absolutely gorgeous! I have a small collection of crystals and gems and just love them! I have made some of my own jewelry from some pieces.

I'm thinking it's either pink tourmaline or ruby. ???

Pink Tourmaline, yeah, that's it!


Here is the whole bunch of photos.

Thanks!

As I was going to school for my geology degree I absolutely hated the minerology aspect of it. For some reason it just did not click with me and I hated having to memorize all the different names and how to tell the different rock types from one another.

They are very pretty though.

Pink tourmaline most likely.

Has anyone any experience in using crystals for healing? I did a couple of courses in the subject, going into it as an 'open minded sceptic', but very drawn to crystals. And what 'healing' I have done has, quite frankly, terrified me with it's success -

a. Woman with Planter Fasciatis, one treatment gave 2 weeks pain relief and after three more she has remained pain free for over two years. Steroid injections were doing nothing before this.

b. Polycystic Ovary Disease - one treatment and no cysts to be found afterwards.

c. Painful sore throat, a quick treatment giving complete relief.

Three examples that come to mind. I think I'm scared to do much more incase its all coincidence. Sadly don't seem to be able to do much for myself.

Interesting. I don't think I'd believe crystals could be used for healing or energy work if I didn't have experience with meditation and kundalini. Before that I was one of those people that thought crystals were a "faggy" new age gimmick and any effect was simply placebo. In my limited experience it would seem the key to feeling the character of a crystal is sensitivity to subtle energy. If you are unable to sense the subtle energy within your own body then I'd imagine picking up on a crystal's "vibes" would be difficult.

Assuming the crystals were responsible for the healing in your sessions it sounds like the people you worked on didn't need this sensitivity to benefit. What crystals were you using? What was your procedure? I tend to think in the kind of healing that may have went on that it's more dependent on the actual healer than the tools used, but that's still something I'm trying to verify myself.

Yes, interesting.
Could it be due to vibrational frequency of the crystals?

In the link I gave above, there's also full access to physical and chemical data, photos, electron microscopy images, images of thin sections and analytical data such as Mineral Vibrational Spectra in the near-, far- and mid- infrared regions of the spectrum, infrared emission spectra and Raman spectra of minerals.

Not always true, can be pink as well. Google images.
