Many different materials about minerals can be found on the Internet. These range from interpretations of their therapeutical uses to birthstone tables which in turn rely on interpretations of writings of many different authors. One of the originators of this mystical subject was Pliny the Elder (Gaius Plinius Secundus). In his book "The Natural History" he explains his notions about the nature of minerals. But the roots of usage of minerals for achieving higher states of consciousness exist from the beginning of time. Excerpts from writings about Buddha's sayings, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Chinese and Egyptian writings and further... they were worn by rulers, kings, man of wisdom... all these texts speak of the mineral's nature and the symbiosis of the man and the mineral as conscious beings, clearly giving us knowledge that they are "alive" and that they "live" within and around us.
