Egg Symbolism And Gemstone Eggs :
Throughout time the egg has symbolized new beginnings, protection, resurrection and the spark of creation for many religions. Considered a powerful symbol of fertility, purity and rebirth in traditional folk religions, magic rituals often use eggs to promote fertility and restore virility of the body and mind. Christians embraced the egg symbol long ago and likened it to the tomb from which Christ arose.
Archeologists have discovered clay eggs in prehistoric graves, but it was the Ancient Romans who actually began the tradition of decorating eggs to celebrate the Vernal Equinox, also known as the spring equinox, or the first day of spring - a time of renewed hope for those who had made it through a difficult winter. And of course the egg is an important part of Easter celebrations worldwide.
The gemstone egg is a very important and versatile tool in crystal healing. Whether the egg is natural in shape, or carved by man, the metaphysical properties are the same. Gemstone eggs are also used for acupressure, reflexology, scanning the auras, Shiatsu, zone therapy, or to simply massage and soothe sore areas of the body. The curve of a gemstone egg fits perfectly into the curvature of the hand, making it perfect to hold during meditation, or use either end to apply gentle pressure to soothe sore areas of the body.
