Royals have worn gemstones throughout history in their crowns Jewelry, thrones, sword, as Rings or as necklaces. Interestingly enough, having a specific crystal in your crown could activate your crown chakra. And having a necklace or your heart chakra could activate your heart chakra.

Forehead crowns were also worn to stimulate the third eye. Pharaohs carried a zinc cylinder and a copper cylinder, and both filled with quartz to balance energy. It’s the equivalent of in yin-yang today. In ancient Japan, quartz crystal spheres were thought to represent the hearts of dragons, which symbolized wisdom and power. Ancient Greeks brought themselves with crushed hematite before going into battle and thinking that it will make them invincible. Amongst the Romans, crystals were used in medical treatment and to attract desirable things, protect in a battle, and enhance health.
