Stone Medicine is becoming increasingly popular. Both in metaphysical circles and collectors at large. Here are some thoughts. My father was what can be termed a ‘rock hound’. He spent a good deal of time and attention digging in the dirt and had a profound respect for fossils, tools and artifacts made from Stone. I observed this from a very young age…and loved to run behind him on his pursuits. In this way I say I come by it honestly. Geological formations formed both by Nature and sculpted by humans is a astounding look at history and evolution. We learn from this history. The Great Pyramids of Egypt and the Nazca Lines of Peru (could have had extraterrestrial help), are examples of how we imprint Stone to preserve a teaching and hold an energy. Energy is condensed in Stone. Each Stone is a living being, when divided is still connected to the family and geographic location of its origin. This year I brought a lot of African Stones back to Canada. I am often asked ‘what does this stone do?’, I usually reply, ‘it is between you and the stone’. Although may elemental aspects play a huge part in the energy. This is seen by colour, structure, weight etc. The five platonic solids are the building blocks of Nature seen in Stone formation. This is an interesting study.
Stones have become a commodity. They are increasing in monetary value, as well as popularity. Let us not forget, that Stones are alive and a intensely powerful part of Earth. In this they give their service freely. My investment in Stone Medicine is to provide those who are drawn to the evolutionary assistance they give.
