Let's talk about Adaptogens, a relatively "new" scientifically proven substance. I'd like to dive in by looking first at what adaptogens are, how the science developed and lastly the results of testing for adaptogens in crystals.
What does the term adaptogenic mean? According to Panossian and Wikman, “Adaptogens were initially defined as substances that enhance the ‘state of non-specific resistance’ in stress, a physiological condition that is linked with various disorders of the neuroendocrine-immune system. Studies on animals and isolated neuronal cells have revealed that adaptogens exhibit neuroprotective, anti-fatigue, antidepressive, anxiolytic, nootropic and CNS stimulating activity. In addition, a number of clinical trials demonstrate that adaptogens exert an anti-fatigue effect that increases mental work capacity against a background of stress and fatigue, particularly in tolerance to mental exhaustion and enhanced attention.” These adaptogens have been found in herbs, mushrooms and stones!
How do we know that adaptogens are in stones? In the early 1900’s a new method of testing subtle energies was developed in France, called Vibrational Radiesthesia. From this testing they were able to distinguish a 12 spectrum band of subtle energies, called the Universal Vibrational Spectrum. These subtle vibrational bands of energy were found to effect all living beings: physically, energetically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
In the late 70’s/80’s the work of the French Radiesthesiasts was expanded when Dr. Ibrahim Karim developed his BioGeometry® system. This centering vibration works to balance and harmonize the different specialized energies of the Vibrational Spectrum present in any person, place, or thing. BioGeometry is a science that deals with the Energy of Shape; it uses shapes, colors, motion, orientation, and sound to produce a vibrational quality that balances energy fields.
With this new discovery, attention was turned from plant adatogens to the possibility of adaptogens in the mineral world. The result was finding that yes, indeed, there are crystal adaptogens! In doing my research for this blog, I found it surprising to learn that the more common stones (to date) like clear quartz, amethyst, tourmaline, etc, are not adaptogenic. They can however amplify the effects of an adaptogenic crystal.
According to Pur Crystal, which has done its independent testing on adaptogenic crystals, their research has discovered that there are relatively few natural minerals that have the vibrational markers of a true adaptogen. To quote Pur Crystal, “Many of the most amazing Crystal Adaptogens come from small deposits, so they may only be available on the market for a short time before the deposit runs out. These special stones are sometimes found at locations which may be remote and hard to access. This raises the possibility that these stones attained their Adaptogenic qualities because they grew in the ground at locations which have unusually beneficial natural vibrations — what are sometimes considered “Sacred Power Spots” by native traditions — which imparted to these Crystals their strong Centering Vibration.”
I am thrilled to be able to have secured 100% natural, unpolished genuine BG3 Adaptogenic Citrine from the Piaui Mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The citrine that is found in this small mine has been tested and been found to be adaptogenic. I cannot stress enough how difficult it is to source, not to mention the museum quality of this citrine! Below is a picture taken by the miners, right after mining this citrine. You can see the dirt still on it! This citrine is so clean and clear it did not go through the process that almost all crystals that hit the market go through: an acid dip to get rid of other mineral impurities.
While every Adaptogenic Crystal is similar in that it has a high intensity centering vibration, they are all different due to their diverse Secondary Vibrations. Below are a few examples:
- Ability to recharge the energy field of humans and other living beings, and can even recharge other stones which have been depleted).
- Possess the profound ability to absorb virtually any harmful/heavy energy and transmute it to the centering light) energy vibration.
- Manifest intentions in the physical world through energizing of thought forms placed into it
- Calming and clearing of the mind and emotions with powerful, and almost instantaneous, stress reduction.
Do you have an Adaptogenic crystal? If you do, I'd love to hear your experience with them!
