According to Plato the Atlanteans used crystals to read minds and transmit thoughts.[The first historical documentation of crystals originated from the Ancient Sumerians (c. 4500- c. 2000 BC). Writings dating back as far as 400 B.C. that make observations about the powers different crystals emit. Often if a negative incident occurred a specific stone would be using in order to counteract the negative effect. This was done by wearing amulets or other talismans around the neck with specific stones, which were used to bring about a desired effect.The origins of crystal healing is tied to Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, India, Ancient Greece, or Ancient Rome.
The philosophy of modern crystal healing is based on traditional concepts borrowed from Asian cultures, most notably the Chinese concept of life-energy (chi or qi) and the Hindu or Buddhist concept of chakras, which are vortices of this life-energy, said to connect the physical and supernatural elements of the body.
Due to the incredible heat and pressures crystals are subjected to in their formation, they retain an energy within them This is a measurable energy and is present without the need for a "belief" in crystal healing. It is this energy that is what healers have used for centuries to combat imbalances in the human body and heal the mind. Crystals each have a resonant frequency or a "pulse" that comes off them, and depending on the chemical composition and formation of the crystals depends on the resulting energy.
