A lot of people who are just getting into using crystals get recommend to look into them to help them to help unblock and align their chakra’s and contrary to popular knowledge, this is not a new thing. Some of the earliest recorded uses of crystals can be seen as far back 6000BC to the times of the Pyramid builders of Egypt.

The benefits of Crystals will unfortunately because of duality always remain a doubted topic by the minds of sceptics, but we here at YUSA fully subscribe to the esoteric physical and spiritual effects of Mother Nature’s solar rechargeable mineral batteries. So with us being Crystal connoisseurs, whenever we’re travelling around we try our best to visit the local crystal stores, what we find nothing more frustrating than a store owner or assistant who can’t tell you about the pieces that you are interested in or even recommend crystals based on your needs.
