The Holy Bible is priceless Treasure!
To my surprise I discovered in the bible an ancient divination tool, used for making decisions, based
entirely on the Inspired Word of God. The crystal garment is designed from specific instructions given
directly by God to Moses set out in Exodus 28.
The High Priest, Aaron (Moses’ brother) would wear the “Judgement Breastplate “with 12 stones, to
represent the 12 tribes of Israel, when he entered the Temple to ask God for an answer to a direct
And you will make a breast piece of judgment, a work of a skilled craftsman; you will make it like the work of
the ephod; you will make it of gold, blue and purple and crimson yarns, and finely twisted linen. It will be
squared, doubled, a span its length and a span its width.
You will fill it with stone mounting, four rows of stone, a row of carnelian, topaz, and emerald is the first row;
the second row is a malachite, a sapphire, and a moonstone;
the third row is a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;
the fourth row is a turquoise and an onyx and a jasper.
Their settings will be woven with gold. The stones will be according to the names of the Israelites, twelve
according to their names, with seal engravings, each according to its name they will be for the twelve tribes.
Exodus 28 15-20 Lexham English Bible LEB
The Priest placed the breast plate over his heart then entered into direct communication with God to
receive a specific answer.
Judgment of the Urim and the Thummim
The Scriptures below simply reference when the tool was used and mentioned in the Holy Bible.
• And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be
upon Aaron's heart, when he goeth in before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of
the children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD continually. Exo 28:30
• And he put the breastplate upon him: also he put in the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim.
• He will depend on Eleazar the priest, who will learn my will by using the Urim and Thummim.
In this way Eleazar will direct Joshua and the whole congregation of Israel in all their affairs.
• And of Levi he said, Let thy Thummim and thy Urim be with thy holy one, whom thou didst
prove at Massah, and with whom thou didst strive at the waters of Meribah; Deut 33:8
• Then Saul said to the Lord, the God of Israel, Why have you not given me an answer today? If
the sin is in me or in Jonathan my son, O Lord God of Israel, give Urim, and if it is in your
people Israel, give Thummim. And by the decision of the Lord, Saul and Jonathan were
marked out, and the people went free. 1 Samuel 14:41
• So he asked Jehovah what to do. But Jehovah did not answer him. He did not answer by dreams
or by the use of Urim and Thummim or by prophets. 1 Samuel 28:6
• And the Tirshatha said unto them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, till there
stood up a priest with Urim and with Thummim. Ezra 2:63
• And the Tirshatha said unto them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, till there
stood up a priest with Urim and Thummim. Neh 7:65
The above Scriptures make it clear- the Divination tool indicated a specific outcome after the request
to God for a clear decision.
12 Gemstone crystals
The use of these 12 specific gemstones in the Breastplate- representing the 12 Tribes of Israel is not
confined to the Old Testament.
The Crystalline Age of the New Jerusalem
These 12 precious stones are also referenced again in the New Testament in Revelations.
• 19 .The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first
foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth
onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth
turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. Rev 21:19
We see precious gems referenced throughout the Bible however it’s not specifically stated exactly
what benefits are obtained from each of these stones. Each stone is a seal of the specific tribe,
although we are not told exactly the reason each stone is selected and why it represents that tribe.
We know the Breast piece is worn close to the Heart, assisting in the decision making process from
the Heart itself. The Bible indicates that Heart (rather than the mind) is the place of highest
knowledge and wisdom. Scripture informs us that King Solomon was the wisest man ever:
Behold, I have done according to your words. Behold, I have given you a wise and discerning heart, so that
there has been no one like you before you, nor shall one like you arise after you. 1 Kings 3:12
What purpose do the gems serve in connecting man to his Maker in the Holy Temple of God?
God created us from the dust of the earth and the Holy Bible also tells us the “Judgement Breastplate”
is to be worn over the heart of the High Priest, which contains the 12 precious stones from the earth, is
required for the High Priest when he is in the Temple and conducting Spiritual duties.
"Can you fathom the mystery of God? Or can you probe the limits of the Almighty? Job 11:7
These stones must have some qualities that amplify the Priests’ ability to connect with the Spiritual or
higher realms, enhancing focus, strengthening insight to receive directions directly from God himself,
supporting his Ministry for Israel.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and
man became a living soul.
Why select these 12 Crystals?
Is it a co-incidence that these 12 Stones for the 12 Tribes correspond directly to the 12 Chakra energy
centres mentioned by Eastern Spiritual traditions and the related colour crystals that can be used to
balance the frequency and vibration of each energy point?
Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body
is filled with light. But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if
the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! Matthew 6: 22-23
Why compare the 12 Chakra system to the 12 Stones of the 12 Tribes?.
“The premise of the 12 chakra system is that all living beings are part of a whole.
Each of us is grounded to the earth and linked to the universe via a thin cable. That
cable stretches from roughly three feet below your feet to miles and miles up through
the atmosphere and on deep into outer space.”
The 12 Stone Breast plate includes the onyx to ground us to the earth chakra as well as
the amethyst that connects our crown chakra to Divine energy.
And Jesus said to them, "Truly I say to you, that you who have followed me, in the regeneration when
the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the
twelve tribes of Israel. Matthew 19:28
It’s my belief that God created crystals in the earth to Heal and restore health to the human body,
these crystals hold a steady frequency based on the colour of the stone and they are transferring
information directly to the human energetic body to restore it to its original essence, opening us to
our full Spiritual potential to connect directly with the Creator and the higher dimensions.
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
God's temple is holy, and you are that temple.
1 Corinthians 3: 16-17
In Him the whole building is fitted together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord.
And in Him you too are being built together into a dwelling place for God in His Spirit.
The Word of God regarding the use of these crystals is validated in the Old and New Testament
books; their spiritual purpose to raise the vibration of human beings is absolutely undeniable.
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my whole being shall exult in my God;
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me
with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself
with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels- Isaiah 61:10
I will share another secret about these gemstones now. When they are illuminated with direct light
they light up in ALL the colours of the rainbow!
Incredibly this scientific fact was only very recently known to Scientists. “There are many amazing
scientific facts made in the Bible long before any modern scientist knew about them. The 12 precious
stones that form the foundation of the New Jerusalem in Revelation 21:19-20 are all anisotropic, when
they are in pure light they look radiant and marvellous. Other precious stones such as diamonds,
spinel, pyrope look black and colourless in pure light. This is amazing in that no one knew when the
Revelation book was being written and yet the Bible specifically mentioned these stones.” David
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy
Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone
most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal -Revelation 21:10-11
Use of Crystals today
They are used in traditional crafts, mystical crystal balls and jewellery- the biblical Breast piece is the
fore-runner for today’s modern day Birthstones.
“The origin of our twelve birthstones and their colors is rooted in the twelve colored stones in the
breastplate of the high priest of ancient Israel. The fact that our birthstones are not only associated
with different tribes, but also with different months, shows that there was a strong tradition that each
of the twelve sons of Jacob was born at a distinct time of year.”
Quartz crystals are also key objects in modern lifestyles, where they fulfil a vital role in smartphones
and other mobile phones, digital cameras, and automotive electronics.
Crystals are used in phones and computers for our technology in this information age.
Scripture tells us they will be the foundation stones for the new civilisation.
The last frontier for us to conquer is the Spiritual realm, the Unseen, the world beyond the perceptions
of the mind. How will these crystals assist us in exploring this new era?
The crystals are the oldest living beings on the planet. They will also be the last; scripture tells us they
are the very foundation of the new realm we will inhabit.
O storm-battered city, troubled and desolate! I will rebuild you with precious jewels and make your foundations
from lapis lazuli. I will make your towers of sparkling rubies, your gates of shining gems, and your walls of
precious stones. Isaiah 54:11-12
What secrets can we assimilate from attuning to their vibrational frequency? If we are to become
more perceptive to these subtle energies what will they offer to us?
Surely the stone will cry out from the wall, And the rafter will answer it from the
framework Habakkuk 2:11
“I tell you”, He answered, “if they remain silent, the very stones will cry out.”
Why does Jesus say the stone will cry out, are they living beings and what would
they say if we can hear them now?
And the LORD their God will save them in that day As the flock of His people; For they are as the
stones of a crown, Sparkling in His land. Zechariah 9:16
You will be a crown of splendour in the LORD's hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
I wish you well on your journey of further exploration of these priceless gems, may they be valuable
tools for further Spiritual development of mind, body and soul.
I wish to make it clear though, the High Priest of old used it to access the Highest Power. These stones
are simply tools to help us cleanse, realign and restore our energy to become more open to deeply
connect with I AM THAT I AM.
I was in the Spirit, and I saw a throne standing in heaven, with someone seated on it. The One seated there
looked like jasper and carnelian, and a rainbow gleaming like an emerald encircled the throne. Revelation 4:3
"Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1
And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as
a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Malachi 3:17
And the LORD their God will save them in that day As the flock of His people; For they are as the stones of a
crown, Sparkling in His land. Zechariah 9:16
