‘Crystals at Villa della Rosa B&B’
Gemstones have fascinated mankind since the times of the caveman and they captivate us still. Whether you enjoy collecting gemstones, or use them for healing, for spiritual reasons or for divination, they are always fascinating.
What are crystals?
Basically, they are a solid material in which atoms are arranged in regular patterns. This applies to the salt crystals in your kitchen as much as to the diamond in a ring. You might think that glass is a crystal, but it isn’t. There is no crystalline structure because it is cooled too quickly. The actual word ‘crystal’ comes from the Ancient Greek word krystallos which means icy cold. The Ancient Greeks believed that clear quartz was ice that had frozen so hard it would never melt.
Quartz is a very commonly occurring gem. From coarse sand to the finest amethysts there are many forms of quartz. For your enjoyment, there are many quartz crystals all through the B&B and it’s garden.
The laying on of crystals is an ancient art. It is thought that as light reflects off crystals and stones, the electro-magnetic field of the body, the aura, absorbs the energy. Silicon is an excellent transmitter of vibrations and energy, which is why it is used in the electronics industry and in science. Quartz is made of silicon, and a major component of the human body is also silicon, so it
is thought one can transfer electro-magnetic energy to the other. Using crystals is thought to dissolve stress, remove blockages, support new intentions and bring harmony. They can neutralize negative energies, and are used to clear the atmosphere in a room. You can place a crystal ball or a large crystal druze in a room to help balance the “feel” of a room.
But you don’t have to believe in the power of crystals to appreciate their beauty!
