This is a list of rocks and minerals that are believed to have powers in healing actual diseases or medical conditions.
(This is information that I have gathered from notable Metaphysical Healers, but I am not a Metaphysical expert or a medical doctor. I present this information just for fun. I do not vouch for the use of any rocks and minerals for medicinal purposes. Nor do I recommend you ingest anything.
I recommend you consult a doctor for any health concerns. We do not advise you to discard your doctor’s advice! However, if wearing, holding, meditating with, or sleeping with a crystal or rock under your pillow makes you happy-what could it hurt?)
