    Countless magical and medicinal properties have been attributed to stones over the centuries. Diamonds gave immunity to poison and revealed infidelity...amethyst protected against drunkenness...heliotrope (bloodstone) stopped nosebleeds and conferred invisibility...sapphire enabled the wearer to escape from prison. For many
centuries, because the origin of disease was unknown, its treatment was linked with magic and superstition.

    Although the healing properties of certain stones were first recorded in the early Egyptian days, it was not until Roman times that scholars such as Pliny wrote of stones as a form of medicine. It was the ecclesiastical writers who compiled the first major treatises on healing with stones. The use of stones for healing was carried out in different ways. At times, the mere presence of the stone was thought to be sufficient to effect a cure. At other times the stone was placed on the afflicted part of the body and sometimes the stone was powdered and eaten. Successes achieved by the various applications of stones may not have been due to the stones directly, but to the
effect of the suggestion on the sufferer. Failures were excused by the explanation that the stone used was not "genuine".

   Today, increasing numbers of people are pursuing various non-traditional methods of illness diagnosis and therapy. Many of these alternative approaches, including "natural" medicine, acupuncture and even stones, have been employed in the treatment of disease for centuries and are again becoming more and more accepted, which would indicate a certain degree of success. There seems to be little doubt today that in many cases the mind does, in fact, play a vital role in the ability of the body to recover from illness...the healing power of positive thought is accepted by both traditional and
alternative medical practitioners. The belief in the powers of a certain therapy, therefore, could indeed contribute to the cure of the illness. 

    In many of the books on the healing powers of stones, so many virtues are attributed to each stone that one might conclude that any stone can cure any disease. It appears, however, that in many cases of duplicated healing powers, either the color or the constitution of the stone has indicated its appropriateness for a particular disease. 

Shown below  is a quick reference list of some of the healing properties attributed to various stones over the years. For more detailed information on each stone's healing properties go to the The Stones page.
