Green Crystals - Life

Article

Green is the colour of nature, and of the pigment chlorophyll which is used to promote photosynthesis. The colour green therefore has special associations with life and growth.

The ancient Egyptians associated green crystals with fertility. In South Africa the Bantu believe that aventurine forms where lightening strikes, and the Aztecs believed the same regarding jade.

As the very centre of the visible light spectrum, and as the predominant colour of plants, it is always around us when we are at one with nature. Green crystals are soothing and healing.
