I have a question for the metaphysical consultants... How are the energetic properties and attributes determined? Are the properties/frequencies measured in order to provide verifiable benefits/affect? How do we accurately know?
Or is the meaning widely based on information passed down for generations? I hope you can feel my sincere desire to know the truth. Thank you for your help.
Thanks so much for your question about the history and science of using crystals for healing. Here is a link to an article that explains some of the history of working with crystals:

The basic science behind using crystals for healing is that crystals are formed from sources that are similar to the physical body and healing for the body. Water, salt, heat....all of these are treatments used to help us feel better and they are the conditions that form crystals.
Why we assign certain healing properties to each crystal is a matter of history and experimentation. It is very important when working with crystals to recognize that it is not a finite or absolute science. You may read that an Amethyst helps heal headaches but it does nothing for you while a different crystal might. The suggestions that we and all crystal practitioners use are based on our experiences with working with the crystals and they are only suggestions. It is important when working with crystals that you trust your instincts and do what you feel is right for you. If you are looking for the truth about how crystals can help you then you will only find that within yourself. Learning about different crystals and the properties that others have experienced when working with them is an important part of the process of discovering how crystals can improve your life. You can take the advice of others when it comes to crystals but only you will know which one is right for you and if it make a positive difference in your life. It is almost impossible to give you an answer about the "truth" of whether crystals do improve your life. One truth that I can tell you is that they have worked for me and I hope they do the same for you.
