The Planets and their crystals

The following is a list of associations between the Planets and Crystals as it developed over time. The list includes associations made by Willian Lilly, George Frederick Kunz as well as current associations listed under Modern thought.
William Lilly was a 17th century astrologer who published a number of astrological texts among which are 'Christian Astrology' and 'Introduction to Horary Astrology.' He wrote about the effects of crystals in his autobiography among other things.
George Frederick Kunz (1856-1932) was an American mineralogist and mineral collector who became famous for identifying a new variety of gem - spodumene - which is nowadays also known as Kunzite (in his honour). Among other books he wrote The Curious Lore of Precious Stones where the crystal-planet associations come from. The planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are mentioned by neither Lilly (because they were not as yet discovered during his lifetime) nor Kunz (who seems to have stuck to tradition) and all associations for these planets come later and are listed under Modern.
