Crystal Healing on the Rise



Since Covid-19 struck the world in March 2020, mental health has been on a steady decline. Because of this, many have turned to the comfort and power of crystal healing to ease their minds and bring them peace.

According to livescience.com, “Crystal healing is an alternative medical technique in which crystals and other stones are used to cure ailments and protect against disease.”


The practice of crystal healing and meditation has been around for centuries. There is even evidence supporting this practice being present since the beginning of mankind. Using crystals can range from big, elaborate ceremonies to simply putting one in your pocket before your daily drive. The simplicity and beauty of crystal healing is one of the reasons it is becoming such a popular topic in today’s society.


Crystals themselves have become much more accessible in recent years, as more crystal shops are popping up here and there. One of these shops, Gem Thorpe, is nestled on Race Street in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. They carry things for beginners and experienced collectors alike, from simple quartz to more rare crystals like moldavite.


Crystals may not be able to fix the world, but many believe they can calm the mind. In these chaotic times, crystals might be worth a try.
