Geology certainly rocks but do rocks have special powers? We will take a skeptical look at the mystical world of crystal healing.

On our journey through this ancient practice we will ask why people believe rocks and crystals have magical healing properties and find out what actually happens when you visit a crystal healer.

We will take a look at the practice in Scotland, find out what people are selling, what they claim crystals can do for you and why skeptics should take more notice.


Heather and Sonia have been organising Aberdeen Skeptics in the Pub for several years.

Sonia is a PhD student in Physiology and Heather has a PhD in Molecular Pharmacology and now works at the University of Aberdeen.

When not being serious skeptics they can be found at Heather’s allotment or playing with Sonia’s Degus.
