Gemstone Properties & Alternative Healing With Gemstones
You can find alternative healing solutions from mother earth in the healing properties of gemstones and crystals.
Your love of a certain type of jewelry may speak to healing issues in your life.
Learn about the chakras affected by gemstones and crystals, and the specific emotional, mental, spiritual and physical
healing properties of stones such as citrine, abalone, aventurine, emerald and more.
I love the energy of earth stones like turquoise and amethyst as well as the beauty of a rose quartz or crystal
quartz pieces. At various times, I’ve worn certain stones near my heart for the healing energies they impart.
When dealing with painful relationship issues, I wore malachite near my heart. Other times, feeling overwhelmed
by the demands of my life, I wore hematite to become a little less visible for a while.
I often place crystals on the body when doing healing work or use them to clear out energy blockages in the body.
