Still the rhinestone promotes good work of a brain (head and even dorsal), removes headaches and pacifies stresses. Also with the help of rock crystal you can quickly bring down the temperature. Chinese medicine uses balls of rhinestone for massage, and small sharp crystals (so-called “banshees”) to stimulate special biologically active points on the human body. Rhinestones allow us to move confidently in the direction of our dreams as they serve as protectors from haters, doubters, naysayers, and our own negative self talk. Rhinestones have a great power to pick us up and help us to work through any challenges that we may be facing as they help us to stay connected.
A rhinestone, paste or diamante is a diamond simulant made from rock crystal, glass or acrylic. Originally, rhinestones were rock crystals gathered from the river Rhine. The availability was greatly increased in the course the 18th century when the Alsatian jeweller Georg Friedrich Strass had the idea to imitate diamonds by coating the lower side of glass with metal powder. Hence, rhinestones are called strass in many European languages. Rhinestones can be used as imitations of diamonds, and some manufacturers even manage to reproduce the glistening effect real diamonds have in the sun. In 1955, the Aurora Borealis, a thin, vacuum-sputtered metallic coating applied to crystal stones to produce an iridescent effect, was introduced by Swarovski. Aurora Borealis tends to reflect whatever color is worn near it, and it is named after the Aurora Borealis atmospheric phenomenon, also known as the “Northern Lights”. Similar treatments are Aqua aura and “Flame aura”. Typically, crystal rhinestones have been used on costumes, apparel and jewelry. Crystal rhinestones are produced mainly in Austria by Swarovski and in the Czech Republic by Preciosa and a few other glassworks in northern Bohemia. In the US, these are sometimes called Austrian Crystal. In the Spanish-speaking world they are called Cristal de Bohemia.
The magical properties of rhinestone in general has no analogues. This precious stone even received a special name – “clairvoyance stone”. Crystal balls now become almost an obligatory subject for the soothsayer and the magician. It is believed that rock crystal well focuses attention and sharpens the thought process. It is also believed that rhinestone is quickly tuned to individual vibration of a person, for which crystal was called a “living stone”. And the special magical properties of crystal are recognized by almost all people living on the earth.
