Crystals: Word Origin & Ancient Practices

The word Chrystos: means the Stone of Truth, the Stone of Life, overcoming the Stone (or tomb) of Death. The Greeks in antiquity called frost and ice, as well as stones that looked like icicles the crystalos, which is where the word crystal comes from. Which originally was given to the clear rock crystals only and then it later took on the coloured crystals. All nutritional minerals (calcium, manganese, potassium etc.) are all crystals.

Anciently when huge crystals were found they were taken to the Pharaoh, Seer, King or Prophet of the group. In turn the overseer would commission the artisans, stone cutters and master craftsmen to form a large crystal Carillon - a sacred tool of ordinance, for the unification of the heart and mind to be joined in the Spirit of Living Temple work. It was taught that the hearers and see-ers of the Carillon would experience the renascent; the "smell of renewal", the fragrances of being made new; to be born again and the "freshness" of the experience.

As magma rises from the depth of the Earth, during its cooling process it forms bubbles. Water vapor then condenses there and silicon dioxide is dissolved out of the surrounding rock. In the course of many millennia it continues to cool down. Depending on the elements found at the time of creation of the crystal it will determine what colour and other physical properties the crystal will have. It could be said that crystals are literally fossilized water.
