Crystals + Science
Crystals interact with the body’s energy field, creating balance and alignment.
Many people use crystals for stress and focus, while others believe that crystals have the power to help with physical ailments and illnesses.
Jude Polack, founder and director of bewater, a company that sells crystal-infused water bottles, explains there is a long history of crystals being used for well-being.
“Archaeological finds show that amber was in use for protection and well-being as far back as 10,000 years ago in the UK,” she says. “Records from Ancient Sumer show that crystals were used for prosperity and health.”
In Egypt, Polack notes that multiple stones were used for medicinal and ritual purposes, including:
- lapis lazuli
According to Polack, Leonardo da Vinci reportedly kept a gemstone on his desk, claiming, “Amethyst dispels evil thoughts and speeds up thinking.”
Historically, crystals have been used by the likes of the Romans, the Ancient Egyptians, the Chinese, the Ancient Greeks, Indians and the Ancient Japanese to promote healing, enlightenment and the attraction and fulfillment of all forms of desire. Crystal use dates back at least 6,000 years to the time of the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia. They are considered to have metaphysical properties and some even claim psychic abilities with regular use.
All crystals (or Crystalline Silica to be precise) are considered to be one of the building blocks of life. They are made from the 2 most abundant elements on the planet – Silicon and Oxygen. The atoms bond together, under pressure, after which they arrange, incredibly stably, into a three-dimensionally repeating pattern giving the ‘crystal’ its structure.
Together, silicon and oxygen make up approximately 80% of the earths crust. Silicon is also an excellent conductor of electricity and, therefore, crystals are of great use in the technology industry. These properties have made Crystalline Silica an indispensable component of the natural and technological worlds.
So, how do crystals work?
Quartz crystals possess a very unique property called piezoelectricity. A piezoelectric crystal converts mechanical pressure into electricity. That means that bending or stretching or compressing the crystal creates an electrical current. The reverse is also true; an electrical current causes the crystal to bend, stretch, or compress.
When a quartz crystal is cut, or struck together, the pressure applied to it generates an electrical charge. When an electric charge is applied to the quartz, the crystal distorts, and as the voltage is removed, the crystal creates an electric field…. it vibrates…sometimes 30,000 times per second! Considering our bodies are constantly producing electrical signals, the interaction between us and crystals is pretty clear.
Researchers have been able to demonstrate the ability to store massive amounts of data indefinitely in a synthetic crystal. The research was led by Jingyu Zhang from the University of Southampton in the U.K. He successfully recorded a 300KB digital copy of a text file onto nanostructured glass using ultrafast and intense pulse laser. (Read the article HERE). They also stated that is able to store the vast quantities of data for more than a million years! Furthermore, the crystal was capable of thermal stability up to 1000°C!
“The prototype is made of a square of quartz two centimeters wide and two millimeters thick. It houses four layers of dots that are created with a femtosecond laser, which produces extremely short pulses of light. The dots represent information in binary form, a standard that should be comprehensible even in the distant future and can be read with a basic optical microscope. Because the layers are embedded, surface erosion would not affect them.”

This information suggests that crystals (specifically quartz) have the ability to store information through the medium of laser technology (which are effectively – wavelengths of energy). Furthermore, it suggest that this absorption process works particularly well with high intensity waveforms. This may be particularly useful when it comes to the absorption of other high intensity electromagnetic waves like ionising and non- ionising radiation! Certain forms of radiation are slower moving and are not deeply penetrating into the body (non-ionising radiation), like sunlight, heat and sound. Other types of radiation are fast moving and extremely harmful (ionising radiation), like the ones used in MRI scans and Gamma radiation.
The benefits of crystals may well be underappreciated and poorly researched at this stage. Crystals have the amazing ability to influence and interact with our energy fields. They are unique, in that they are conductors of light, sound and electricity, yet can absorb high intensity energy endlessly.
