pebbles-1090536__180Since the beginning of time, we’ve had a deep connection with stones and crystals. That connection has transcended civilizations, cultures, religions and races throughout history, influencing literature, myriad branches of science and medicine, and profoundly affecting  rituals, customs and traditions, present day included. Their many uses include healing, strengthening and restoring balance and energy, physically, spiritually and mentally.

This connection to the ages and our forefathers, this rich history of stones and crystals fascinates me. As a storyteller and a writer, it inspired my latest series of books, specifically, the types and uses of green stones and crystals.

Per information at, “Like their counterparts in the plant kingdom, the green gems and minerals are the “growth crystals.” As well, “they are powerful conduits of the earth’s Life Force of birth, development, and creation, and of the power of nature’s constant renewal.”

Green stones and crystals embody fertility, nurturing, new life, success, renewal, prosperity and productivity and growth, spiritual, physically and mentally.

According to the post The Power of Healing Crystals at, “there are many varieties of healing crystals, each possessing its own unique vibration, color, shape and healing energy.”

Just a sampling of the many green stones and crystals that exist include amethyst, green aventurine, green calcite, chrysoberyl, emerald and jade. Some of their many uses, per information at, appear below.

Green amethyst is hailed as an “all around healing crystal”. Its many healing properties include strengthening the mind. It’s also useful in achieving a meditative state.

Green aventurine is said to promote balance and support the immune system.

Green Calcite is used for achieving mental health, for stimulating the immune system and for treating infection.

Chrysoberyl helps to promote balance, lift moods and soothe negative emotions.

Emerald promotes spiritual growth and clairvoyance.

Jade, which exists in many different colors, has been considered a “good luck” stone for thousands of years.
