"It is a basic principal that, if a small current of electricity is put across a crystal, it will vibrate. When a
crystal is attuned to the electromagnetic field of the body, it will resonate with its vibrations in harmony with the bodily energy centers. When those centers vary by too great a margin from the vibrational charge of
the stone, the individual will respond to the difference in vibration rates as a sort of irritation. Inasmuch as
the stone's vibration rate is inflexible, once the charge is set, the person who is using it will reflexively alter
his or her own frequency to return to an alignment with the stone's energy to relieve the irritation. This is
the same principle as wearing a brace to correct an injury or deformation of a limb of the body. This is the basic physical principle by which crystals and other crystalline substances work."

WHAT IS A CRYSTAL?
Quote from Crystal Power, Crystal Healing, Michael Gienger, Blandford, page 43
This means that practitioners who use crystal therapy in their practices can
rely on the properties of these crystals to perform the same way, each time,
making them a valuable healing tool.
"A crystal is a solid body with a geometrically regular shape."
Now, this is an important statement because it means that consistently
crystals form in particular shape from what is called inherent properties.
According to Maya Heath, author of The Book of Stones & Metals, "The energy properties of a crystal are defined by the nature of its axis structure. The central axis extends from the tip of the termination to the base. This is augmented by the secondary axes that extend from the angle formed where the sides join inward to the central axis. ... The specific pattern of these axes along with the ideal configuration of the sides is what delineates and defines each crystal family, each pattern of arrangement being distinctive and specific to one particular family. No matter what the basic pattern of the axis structure may be, the working mechanism is the same for all crystals.
CRYSTAL PROPERTIES - Some SCIENCE stuff

CRYSTAL PROPERTIES - What occurs when you USE A CRYSTAL
So what happens when crystal and body meet? There is a recognition of energy from body to crystal and vice versa. For instance, with the use of Green Calcite there is the initial heart energy seeking heart energy. Then, in helping to bring about a more harmonious state, it becomes recognized by both body and crystal what is necessary for returning balance to the body centers. Crystal therapy can be combined with other healing mediums, like Reiki, to additionally help with the healing journey. In a comfortable, inviting and safe environment all this combines to produce a very nurturing, relaxing experience for body, mind, and spirit.
In her book, The Book of Stones & Metals, author Maya Heath comments on techniques regarding the use of crystals and the basics of how they work. Using an example we can all relate to she offers us a better understanding of the relationship between body and crystal and how they work.
