The New Age Series ~ Crystals ~ Book by Jessica Hundley

If you are familiar with The Local Rose, you know I am lover of crystals and have been since I was a wee lass. Nothing is as magical as gazing into a vortex of brilliance inside a beautiful crystal. I keep crystals around me for various reasons like rose quartz, citrine, black tourmaline and more. I have had amazing visits on my site with crystal experts like jeweler Ele Keats and crystal hunter Harishabd Khalsa. They have shown me that crystals can be teachers to us, and aid us in healing in many areas. There now is the most perfectly succinct and lovely book about crystals by Jessica Hundley, whom I had the pleasure of first meeting at the Echo Park Craft Fair. This book is the perfect hostess gift and a good one to quickly look up the magic of a particular crystal. One of my most favorite books on crystals is a bible called Love is in the Earth by Melody. Jessica’s book is perfect for trying to remember the attributes of a specific crystal or some vital information.

The Great Crystal Boom of 2017

While little, if any, scientific evidence exists to substantiate crystals’ efficacy, they are extolled as beneficial to physical and emotional healing. “Especially in times of uncertainty, crystals are an easy access point to tapping into a New Age movement that has experienced a modern upgrade.” Her recent In Goop Health summit, with lectures by integrative medical professionals as well as crystal therapy and aura photography, sold out within days. At Taryn Toomey’s new TriBeCa studio, where she leads her popular workout, the Class, large chunks of clear quartz greet clients at the desk. Each crystal is deliberately placed to help clients release negative energy and cleanse their minds, all while performing multiple jumping jacks and burpees. In glass cases along the wall are the crystal pendants Ms. Toomey designs, and which the studio sells for up to $2,800. In designing the studio, Ms. Toomey collaborated with Rashia Bell and Elizabeth Kohn, the founders of the Cristalline, a design firm. “It’s the concept of how you can heal a home through crystals as well as improve the function of flow and energy,” said Ms. Bell, who is also a crystal healer. Ms. Bell and Ms. Kohn laid a crystal grid beneath the studio floor. The center of the grid houses lighter crystals, like clear and rose quartz and amethyst for cleansing, calming and support. Tracie Martyn, a New York skin care salon favored by celebrities, recently introduced its Complexion Savior Mask, which uses concentrated extract from malachite crystal. Then she lays the crystals on pressure points of the body. “You’re in a state of relaxation in the mind, body, soul,” said Ms. Robinson, a reiki master and crystal healer. Before any youth preservationists go trading laser treatments for chunks of hematite, know that crystals have not been proven to have medical benefits.

Human Activity On Earth Triggered A New Age Of Minerals

Today 5,000 to 7,000 minerals are formally recognized on earth and every year some new ones are discovered. A new paper published by mineralogists Robert M. Hazen, Edward S. Grew, Marcus J. Origlieri and Robert T. Downs argues however that human activity in the last 250 years initiated a new age in earth’s history, characterized by the formation of previously unknown minerals. At first, only magmatic rocks and minerals existed on the cooling crust of the young earth. When tectonic activity started on the early earth, metamorphic minerals started to form. Now minerals form by erosion and chemical weathering of older minerals and rocks. Most minerals formed some 1.3-to-2.3 billion years ago. Reacting with other elements, oxygen formed over 2,000 new oxides and minerals, adding to the 2,000 previously occurring minerals. The evolution of higher lifeforms and plants and new chemical reactions added further minerals over the next millions of years. Recent human activity significantly accelerated the rate of minerals formation again; 208 previously non-existent minerals formed in just the last 250 years. Humans can create artificial minerals, like synthetic gemstones, pure silicon or exotic metallic alloys, but humans also influence the formation of minerals outside the laboratory. Most modern minerals form by chemical reactions between the natural world and human infrastructure, like mines, quarries, industrial complexes and landfills. Over time, eventually involved in tectonic movements and under metamorphic conditions, landfills will act as sort of furnaces for the creation of new minerals. New minerals form by the chemical corrosion of such old and new artifacts. A new excavated tunnel tends to drain the underground, percolating groundwater reacts with materials like concrete or the freshly exposed rock surface, forming minerals like Epsomite or crusts of oxides and hydroxides.
