Historic Uses

Stories of the powers and uses of crystals and gems have come down to us from the beginning of time. Legends have it that crystal forces "set" the electromagnetic field of the Earth so that human souls could incarnate. The most popular stories dealing with the use of crystals date back to Atlantis. There, it is said, large crystals were used to generate power for cities, and it was the abuse of these energies that eventually caused the destruction of this great civilization. Edgar Cayce stated that the largest crystal generator is buried under the Atlantic Ocean near the Devil's Triangle, and this massive shift of unfocused electromagnetic energy is what causes ships and planes to go astray.
It is said that crystals were harnessed in Atlantis for power and surgery. In ancient Egypt they were the force that enabled the huge sandstone blocks to be positioned in building the pyramids. Built atop granite, the immense pressure of these stones activated the crystals found naturally in this granite, creating a gigantic generator.
Crystals were used to light the inner tunnels and chambers while the pyramids and Mystery Temples were under construction. Ancient civilizations, particularly Atlantis, used giant crystals to focus laser light. Crystals were used to fly aircraft, light homes, heal, for agriculture, and to focus beams of energy between pyramids, obelisks, temples, stone monuments and all grid points. Each pyramid amplified the energies to "light" Earth. Crystals were used to control weather, to attune initiates, and in radio waves for communicating with home bases in space (the orbiting Mother ships).
Crystals were used to generate energy, which were positive. The Atlanteans used an advanced form of hypnosis in which complex detailed visuals were projected into a person's brain, either knowingly or not. By doing this, thoughts could be influenced, as could memory banks. Near the decline of Atlantis, the dark priesthood was involved in control over others. They used crystal power to create pestilence's and diseases to kill people by projecting holographic ally the images, fears, concepts, etc., they wanted to impress on people. They experimented on the populace. Scientists manipulated embryos to create subhuman forms to be used as slaves. Embryo development was arrested with crystal energy and hypnotic suggestion caused the embryos to stay more reptilian, scale like. (Some people today are concerned that genetic engineering could be used for control and manipulation).
Crystal generators where built which Edgar Cayce called the "terrible crystals." Many Cayce readings refer to the use of crystals in Atlantis, both for positive and negative uses.
In Atlantis and other ancient civilizations, the Earth grid system or energy lei lines were understood and utilized. Crystals were employed to accentuate this energy grid system. Crystal energy was used as a focus for other purposes also. Atlantis and Lemuria used ultrasound and other energy forms. They used mind power by humming or "toning," and by doing so levitated rock. Crystal pyramids were used like a laser device because they could store and focus energy: sunlight energy. The crystals could encode information to a higher vibration and beam information into a person. The student could obtain the equivalent of a college education from crystal energy.
Lemurians used crystals underground to grow food because they were afraid of the giants living on the surface who were unfriendly and antagonistic. The Lemurians came to spend most of their time in caves, and so needed light energy to grow food. The stored energy from crystals was the source for this light.
In times past, crystals were used to balance harmonies in the body-to stabilize the flow of para, to stimulate the chakras, to raise the kundalini energy. Facets of three, five, or seven were used for certain illnesses, while four- and eight- sided crystals ere used to maintain balance. Crystals of various colors red, green, blue, violet, white, etc., were used to heal various illnesses. Their healing properties restored eyesight to some in the hands of adept healers. Crystals were placed on the eyelids to draw in prana and heal organs inside the body. Much later in history, the American Indian Shamans placed quartz crystals over their eyes to help them become more clairvoyant.
The ancient Greeks believed that quartz was "eternal ice" which came down from Mount Olympus, home of the Greek gods. The people used its natural magnifying power to focus the heat of the Sun's rays in order to start ceremonial fires. According to the famous Roman scholar Pliny, who wrote in the first century A.D., they used the focused crystal heat from the Sun to cauterize wounds.
The ancient Egyptians held quartz sacred, and carved drinking vessels from quartz. Whey they drank from these cups, the water became imbued with life-giving energy. They mined quartz, and along with many cultures began to carve it into jewelry and a variety of objects, both artistic and utilitarian.
