History of Crystals
As Cosmetics: The Early Egyptians used powdered malachite and lapis lazuli as eye shadow.
Jewelry: The beauty of gemstones and metals has caused people to use them for decoration for thousands of years. Many times jewelry was used as a way to declare your “social rank”. A tomb in Ur dating back to 3000 B.C., the tomb of Queen Pu-abi, is thought to have contained the oldest examples of jewelry made of gold, silver, and semi-precious carnelian, agate and lapis lazuli.
As Talismans: Native Americans held the belief that quartz crystals were the home of supernatural forces that would bring good luck to their hunting expeditions.
In Scrying (diving the future using a crystal ball): This technique pre-dates the Greek and Roman periods and has been used by many civilizations.
