7 magic crystals

  • 2016

The rock crystal does not shine, but by fractioning and refracting sunlight it takes surprising, attractive and fascinating appearances. It produces transparency effects that give the light an unreal and immaterial aspect. It should not surprise us, then, that our ancestors have seen in such phenomena some magic, celestial forces that were manifested to them, that delivered messages and omens.

The work carried out by seventh and first ray personalities is that of the architect and the magician and the perfection of his efforts is evident in the mineral kingdom. The secrets of transmutation are the true enigma of this particular kingdom and the word that describes the process is condensation, to achieve the purpose of life's radioactivity.

The three stages of the life cycle of all minerals range from the most concrete (coal) to radiation, through the crystallization of precious and semiprecious stones. The best known example of the effect that transmutation through fire produces on the mineral can be seen in the great transition and transformation performed by allotropy, from coal to the perfect diamond. Another qualitative stage can be observed in radiation or lightning shedding such as radius.

Most mineral substances are divided into seven main groups, corresponding to the seven divisions of the influential rays. We can consider that the seven crystalline systems established in crystallography or science of the laws that condition the formation, structure, geometric, physical and chemical properties of the crystallized matter, are in correspondence with the 7 stars that govern the zodiac. We have in the mineral world the divine Plan hidden in the geometry of a crystal, and the radiant beauty of God imprisoned in the color of a precious stone.


The most representative stone of this system is fluorite or calcium fluoride. Numerous vases and objects of all kinds were sculpted with this stone. He was reputed to strengthen thoughts, the power of concentration and reflection, and bring peace and peace to the spirit of that one who carried it. The amber, chrysolite, diamond, onyx, ruby ​​and topaz are also attributed to the sun.

The chrysolite or gold stone was so called not so much for its yellow-green color and brightness, which evoked the precious metal, but for the power granted to bring honor and glory to those who carried it. It was also quite a protective amulet capable of driving away demons and evil beings. Famous for acting against nighttime anguish, melancholy attacks and appeasing sick or nervous spirits, chrysolite was also used to combat chronic constipation, cure ulcers and favor cauterization and healing in case of injuries.

The diamond is scarce and mysterious, it hides in the deepest part of the earth, up to more than 150 km, it is subjected to extreme pressures and temperatures that make it have an unmatched purity, but also n because it has surprising resistance. It is a symbol of purity and perfection. Hence, everything that has to do with faith, innocence, divine light, and the noblest virtues of the spirit and of the heart, has always been attached to this stone, the most beautiful of all. The diamond provides strength, harmony, love, righteousness, loyalty, faithfulness, serenity, good sense, happiness, wealth, firmness and absolute power.


The most representative stone of this system is wulfenite, which is nothing other than lead molybdate and is associated with this star. No specific virtues or powers are known. Saturn is also credited with black coral, carnelian, jet, onyx and black pearl.

The carnelian and chalcedony are the names that are used today to designate the sardonice. Agate, jasper, onyx, heliotrope and flint, among others, are varieties of microcrystalline quartz. Chalcedony can be considered the most representative of the species, it has a beautiful translucent, blue and gray appearance. He was credited with the power to stimulate, strengthen and make him more resistant to the one who wore it. It was believed that it also protected from the storm, that it had therapeutic and healing effects against depression, annihilating dark thoughts, bad moods, nightmares, which drove away ghosts or sad spirits and preserved from snake bites or stings from insects As for the carnelian, whose name comes from its corneal transparency, it is a chalcedony of flesh-red color, because of this color, by alliteration, it has sometimes been called “carneliana”, referring to the term meat. Thus, the mineral was associated with passion, sensuality, possession, flesh and blood, but also the sacred heart and absolute love.

The onyx takes its name from onyx which means "nail, claw", since this bright flash stone has a shape and aspect reminiscent of a nail. In ancient times, it was appreciated in India and in Persia, where it was believed that it made invisible whoever carried it. A stone of onyx to which healing and miraculous virtues were attributed was found in the church of St. Michael of the Abbey of Saint Albans, in north-west London, Great Britain, where the remains of the English philosopher and politician Francis Bacon rest . Because of its colors, which can be black, brown or red, it was believed that it could exert a bad influence, and specifically cause conflicts and ruptures, especially in couples, but also between neighbors.


Its most beautiful representative is topaz, which was famous for bringing good luck to the person who carried it, but also for its therapeutic virtues, especially in regard to eye problems. He is also credited with the imam, the amethyst, the barite, the carnelian, the garnet, the ruby, the bloodthirsty.

Topaz is actually almost always colorless, however, its famous clarity that defied the night and the forces of darkness has made it a symbolic stone of faith, honesty, purity, righteousness and loyalty. It was also supposed to bring wealth, prosperity, recognition of one's own merits, honor or glory to those who carried it. It was also believed to protect against revenge or evil spirits. His therapeutic virtues were many: they said that he worked wonders in all flu conditions, from viruses, liver and blood, but also and above all, in eye diseases.

The ruby takes its name from rubeus which means "redhead" or "reddish", it is occasionally named carbuncle, since the brightness of this stone has often been compared to the sparkles of burning coal. The ruby ​​is one of the nine poets of the court of the ancient king, Vikramaditya, called "the nine jewels." The Greeks made it an attribute of Ares (Mars), the star-god of war, precisely because of its color similar to blood and fire, and consequently, related to vitality, energy and life. However, the ruby ​​was attributed virtues more protective and beneficial than energetic. Just as it was believed that this gem of fire stimulated or excited even more the hot and passionate temperaments, it was also believed that it had the power to eliminate melancholy, to soften customs and exalted spirits, to reinforce purity and faithfulness of feelings., to return to the person in love and loyal, to bring a little sense and reflection to the one who lacked them and, finally, to favor happiness and prosperity. Supposedly, the ruby ​​worked wonders to soothe fevers, ward off overheating and blood infections, and especially relieve toothaches and headaches.

Amethyst is a crystalline quartz stone colored by iron oxide. Amethyst, in the literal sense means the one who is not drunk . Probably because of the violet color of this stone, which recalls the color of the wine's feces, the power to preserve men from drunkenness or to cure alcoholics was attributed to it.

Apart from the fact that this gem favored the nobility of heart and spirit, good customs, moral qualities and that it could make the one who carried it happy and brave, it had the reputation of driving away evil spirits and spells, frequent and numerous in the Middle Ages.


The amazonite or double silicate of aluminum and potassium is a magnificent representative. Its virtues are essentially those of procuring hope and love to the one or one who carried it. Other stones are agate, aquamarine, albite, beryl, emerald, pink coral, lapis lazuli, pearl and light sapphire.

Since Silicon is a very abundant semiconductor material, it has a special interest in the electronics and microelectronics industry as a basic material for the creation of wafers or chips that can be implanted in transistors, solar batteries and a wide variety of electronic circuits. The first laser was one of ruby ​​and it worked for the first time on May 16, 1960.
