Crystals Enhance Healing--"I Know It Works"

Che-Hanna rocks!

ATHENS TOWNSHIP — Some people come to the Che-Hanna Gem and Mineral Show to learn more about the earthen treasures on display. Some marvel at the masterpieces.

Others come for healing.

“They will put their hand over something and they can feel the power from it, the healing power,” Hazel Remaley, the club’s publicity chairman, said. She was on hand for the 40th annual gem and mineral show at the fire station of the Athens Township Volunteer Fire Company Saturday.

“We do have a lot of people who come for that reason.”

These are people who believe that certain stones have healing properties.

Practitioners of crystal healing, for example, believe that crystals, particularly quartz crystals such as amethyst or clear quartz, contain energy that enhances healing of both body and mind, according to a description on

“They believe that crystals can be ‘charged’ with this healing energy, in a manner similar to the charging of a flashlight battery,” the online description notes. “The charged crystal can then be used to alter the energy patterns in the person receiving treatment.”

Susan Gonzales, one of the vendors at the event, said these “New Age” people believe that the crystals have an energy that can be channeled for healing.

“Crystals are taken out of the earth naturally and there’s an energy that resonates with different parts of the body, and they rebalance the energy in your body to enhance healing,” Kitty Gordnier, who was visiting the show from Coudersport, Pa., said.

She has degrees in Reiki and Therapeutic Touch. Gordnier, who is certified to heal with crystals and gems, added that civilizations in the Far East have used crystals to heal for centuries.

She will use crystals if someone asks her. “I know it works,” she said. “I’ve had positive feedback.”

She likes the show, saying there’s a nice variety and the prices are decent. It took her a little more than two hours to get there. More...

Is is alright to harvest these stones from the earth? Won't that ruin the beauty or make a neighbor mad?
