Uparatnas – Crystals and lesser used gemstones

Gem stones, crystals and semi-precious gemstones come from one unified source – Mother Earth. Created from the magma or Earth’s inner core, these stones have gone through a geologic process of heating, cooling and displacement on their way to their present form.

The energy field of different gemstones is influenced by geometrical form, colour and subtle vibration. Each stone is made up of minute crystals which are in constant motion thus emitting an energy signature or frequency. The gemstone’s colour also plays a dynamic role in the stone’s healing energy. The play of light and colour can stimulate or calm; purify or heal.

A magical and symbiotic connection has always existed between human beings and gems. Ancient civilizations such as the Indian, Chinese, Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks, Romans, or Shamans and Medicine Men have used gemstones for healing in multiple ways – made into powders or elixirs, worn, carried or placed on the body and in ceremonies or rituals. This ancient knowledge has been passed down to our day and with the emerging popularity of holistic health and healing the use of gemstones is again making its way into modern life.


Forms of Gemstones

Since ancient times gemstones and crystals have been used for healing in a variety of different ways and can be found in the following 3 forms:


Rough gemstones are in their natural un-worked state as they were broken or mined from the living rock. Left in their natural condition the surface is irregular and rough and thus contains the greatest amount of healing power. They can be placed gently on the body to transmit and focus healing energies.


Polished gemstones have been tumbled with water and sand thus giving them a smooth rounded surface. They are often used as touch stones and carried in a pocket or purse. Their smooth finish lends well to gemstone healing as they may be held, stroked, rubbed or placed directly on the body.

Faceted & in Jewelry

Faceted gemstones and those embedded in jewellery fashioned with healing gemstones also contains the stones vital energy. The precious metals and colours used in the design will also enhance the stones power. Gemstone jewellery can be created for particular health needs or to create harmonious vibrations and help with positive intentions for protection, prosperity, passion, recovery, clarity, love, good health, peace and other blessings.

Energy & Matter

All matter from sub-atomic to physical to higher vibrational bodies contains dynamic energy.

Energy field of gemstones

  • Each stone is made up of minute crystals which are always in constant motion, emitting an energy frequency.
  • Just as we are influenced by our surroundings, the weather, the food we eat, the colour we wear, so are gemstones and crystals.
  • The energy field of gemstones is influenced by its geometrical form, colour & subtle vibrations.
  • Colour also plays a dynamic role in the stones healing energy. The play of light and colour can stimulate or calm, purify or heal. We can use colour to enhance each gemstone’s healing properties.
  • So when we wear crystals and gemstones or have them in our living space, they will emit energy vibrations that bring a sense of wellbeing on all levels.


Crystals are part of the earth itself and of nature. They are comprised of quartz and silica, which are also a major component of the human body. Like colour, crystals also emit a vibrational frequency, which matches the electromagnetic field of both the earth and its human occupants. The most widely used crystal today is clear quartz and it can be found powering watches, computers and radios to name a few. Within the jewellery the sympathetic resonance of quartz is used for its healing properties and to amplify the energy of the other stones.

All Feng Shui Bagua Light Catchers have a Swarovski faceted prism to disperse and deflect negative chi. The main purpose of faceted crystal balls in Feng Shui is to transmute energy. When hard (negative) energy enters the ball, the facets deflect the energy, breaking it up and turning it into gentle (positive) energy. Faceted crystals can be hung in windows to shift any hard chi entering your home into positive energy. They can also be used in hallways or corridors to slow down fast-moving chi, or to reduce the bad energy transmitted by “poison arrows” such as those from sharp corners.


Gemstones come in multiple forms and colours. Their different colours resonate with the body’s energy system and although their energetic effect is more diffuse than crystals, they are extremely useful for harmonizing an environment or wearing on your person as jewellery. As with colour and crystals, gemstones also provide a symbolic and energetic connection to nature.
