The use of crystals for healing is believed to have originated with the Ancient Sumerians who likely used crystals to heal physical ailments. This practice was later passed on to the Ancient Egyptians, who further developed and popularized the use of crystals for healing, initially in the form of amulet jewelry. The ancient Chinese and Native Americans also practiced crystal healing, creating their own methods and systems. In more recent times, the use of crystals as a healing tool has gained a lot of popularity, with books and blogs dedicated to the subject of crystal healing.
