Here was a very interesting question I recently received about crystal vibration numbers. Thought I would share the convo here:

Q: What’s up with these crystal vibration numbers?

I noticed that in some places they actually state the crystal vibrations with a number, such as Amethyst’s vibration number is 7. I’m just not sure what that means!”


In a nutshell… everything is made of energy and different forms of matter and rays of light vibrate at different vibrational frequencies. Crystals vibrate at different frequencies depending on their matter, size, thickness & their color (light frequency). The next step is to learn what stones resonate at the correct frequency for what you are trying to achieve. Thankfully, much experimentation has already been done for thousands of years before us by the ancients with the art of ‘laying on of stones’ and they’ve already figured out what stones help with what needs…for most.

Since the vibrational frequency varies in this way you can’t just give a “blanket number” for the crystal vibration number and say that ALL amethyst vibrates at a specific frequency number. Vibrational numbers are a measurement of the resonance of a vibrating object with a very precise wave frequency. But since it would be based on so many variables, we can’t just assign a crystal a number. Get what I mean? Can’t do it.

Not to mention…without units after the number, I’m not sure what that number “7” is measuring. In science that’s a HUGE No-No.

As I used to say yell to my physics students:

“Don’t give me a naked number as your answer. I WILL mark it incorrect even if your number is right. And don’t have your parents call me either! A naked number is meaningless! 7? Seven what? Seven hot dog wieners? Seven dirty diapers???! Seven what? The identifying unit is just as important as the answer.”

*…all this w/ a smirk… (I wasn’t that mean!) I do miss being able to pull that shiz with teenagers in the classroom… they have the BEST energy around.*

Anyways, my point is that you need a unit like “Hertz” after that number in order for it to be meaningful.

Here’s a video I did a few years ago (please excuse the poor quality) on precisely this subject of crystal vibration numbers:

Crystal Vibration Number and Frequencies: a discussion?

Oooops! My GEEK-roots are showing!

Sorry to get very scientific, but that’s how I roll. 😉
