Crystals and Gemstones
I love to wear and have crystals and gemstones near me. It’s hard to explain, but they are so comforting. I found a wonderful company that sells crystal and gemstone jewelry. Each piece of crystal jewelry comes with a little card that explains what the crystal will do for you. Below is an article I found in their blog, “How it Works”. It hits the nail on the head!
This is a favorite set of bracelets I found on Sivana’s site. The Honesty & Truth Gemstone Mini Set includes Sodalite beads to encourage honest and open communication, and the Lapis Lazuli to build your intuitive awareness. Light Blue Jade stones create waves of calmness and peace to ground you in your truth. They are 4 mm beads.

How it Works
While no one’s exactly sure how they work, the theory goes something like this:
Crystals (and many gemstones) are formed over millions of years under lots of pressure and heat. They usually come from cooling magma or evaporating water in enclosed rock formations (such as geodes).
The energy it takes to create even one crystal is very intense, and creates a pure element (diamonds are pure carbon). These pure elements, having been intensified naturally, somehow influence us by interacting with the subtle energetic-body and refracting our energy back to us in a different way; just as a crystal breaks down light into rainbow colors.
In turn, we re-absorb that energy, which can help us. So in effect, crystals help us to access what we already have.
Especially in India, the ancients realized that these elements had a positive effect on us and could even help with specific ailments. This is why in nearly every culture in world history, there is a pattern of using precious stones or crystals as healing instruments. MANY people throughout history…I daresay millions- claim to have been healed in some way through the use of crystals. I don’t think they are all wrong…and I hope that as time goes by, we figure out the underlying reason why so many benefit from their use.
How to Treat Yourself
There are lots of different healing modalities using crystals, and they all have their own way of utilizing them. Reiki, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, even Native American healing ceremonies all have their own practices. However, one thing they do share is that the effect is much more powerful when in direct or close contact with the skin.
