All natural stones have gone through a geological process of heating, cooling and displacement and come from one unified source - Mother Earth.
Each stone is made up of minute crystals which are in constant motion and its energy is influenced by geometrical form, purity, colour and subtle vibration that can stimulate, calm, purify or heal. Mankind have used gemstones for healing since ancient time as far as the fourth millennium before Christ. Evidence of gemstones used for healing is recorded by the history of Ancient civilizations such as Chinese, Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks, Romans, Shamans.
A powerful general healer, it brings balance to the intellect, emotions & physical being. Quells anxiety, helps in making the right decisions & shields energy drain from outside sources.
