Does anyone have a list of at what level gems vibrate at?

    A quick google search of "gem vibrations" leads me to believe that this is nonsense. Gems do not vibrate unless you make them vibrate. Like when you strike them with a hammer or something.

    Re: Gems

    The range of frequencies can be extremely large and depend on the type of crystal, cut, size etc. Are you instead inquiring about the amplitude?

    Whatever the case, this might help for starters: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_oscillator.

    • atomic
    • molecular
    • crystal lattice
    • whole gem at once
    • together with the mount
    • together with the owner
    • together with the room
    • together with the house
    • together with the Earth
    • together with the Solar System
    • together with our Galaxy
    • together with the local Galaxy Group
    • together with the Universe

    I hope I have not missed anything important.

    Hi gems. You're going to have to be more specific - we aren't sure what you're asking.

    Yes, you missed "together with the owner's cat (or cats the owner is cat sitting :smile:)"

    How are the gems being vibrated?

    This sounds suspiciously like the nonsense alternative medicine notion that crystals have some sort of "frequency" (what they're doing at that frequency is never explained) that may or may not "harmonize" with the "frequency" of the Human body.

    Not so crazy. For example the quart clock relies on an oscillating crystal.

    The frequency depends on the size and shape of the crystal as well as the plane on which the crystal is cut. In quartz clocks and watches the frequency of the vibration is usually 32,768 Hz.

    It is well known that woowoo sites claim healing properties based of "healing frequencies" of gems. Let's let the OP tell us what he's looking for as opposed to trying to retrofit something rational.
