Gemstone Therapy Overview:
Gemstone therapy is an alternative technique for strengthening the body and resolving issues and patterns. The theory is that gemstones carry vibrational rates. By placing these vibrational rates within the aura - your aura's vibrational rates also change. Often the effects are indirect but very potent. Other times, the effects are very direct and repeatable.
The easiest way to do gemstone therapy is to wear high quality round beads around the neck. Intention strengthens the process but is not necessary, Metal inhibits the process. If metal surrounds the gemstone, its affects are often greatly reduced (and sometimes eliminated).
There are many fancier gemstone therapy techniques. Always use high quality gemstones. These gemstones are undyed, have no chips/fractures, are not irradiated and have very few inclusions and cracks. Beware that there are several "look-alike" glass and fake stones out there. Generally, if the cracks are darker than the bead is dyed.
To determine which stone to use, verify that the stones are not dyed and ask if the stones have been treated. String the beads on silk if possible. Rounded stones are usually recommended for gemstone therapy. The properties listed here are for rounded, highest quality gemstones. Non-rounded stones may have different effects.
