Crystals and elements

Crystals and their relation to the elements
Angeleyesshop.com
The magicians, alchemists, and holy people of the past knew how to use crystals and relate them to the five basic elements of nature. Today, we often speak of four elements: earth, water, air, and fire, omitting the Akasha β€” the fifth element that represents the foundation of the remaining four.

Presently, it is not so easy to relate the vast majority of different crystals, stones and minerals to these elements. The intuitive knowledge of the ancient times is lost. Today, we cannot see what our ancestors knew as a fact even without learning, for example, that a certain stone is a conduit of certain type of elemental energy. Because of that there are different classifications and you can find that certain stones belong to many different categories. Below is given the scheme we believe could be closest to reality.
