History of Crystal Healing
Crystals have been revered by many cultures, religions and peoples across the history of humankind.

The first known use of crystals dates back to the Mesopotamian civilisation of 8000-2000 B.C., where it was supposedly used in a magical capacity. Further along the timeline, Ancient Egyptians used crystals for spiritual connection to higher powers. One archaeologically proven example includes the placement of quartz on the forehead of the deceased to aid in their journey through to the afterlife.
