It is mind-blowing to see how these natural gifts of the earth create an enhanced atmosphere according to our body’s needs.

Feeling tired and sluggish is not always a sign of an oncoming physical illness. Sometimes your heart grows weary of the world’s turmoil. Rose quartz helps to provide stamina and strength to carry on. Rutilated quartz (quartz with needle-like veins running throughout) is effective for getting things moving energetically.
Yellow jasper is associated with the solar plexus chakra area of the body. It is located in the stomach, between the base of the sternum and the navel. The healing powers of yellow jasper are similar to the sun’s powers and produce a calming effect. Other yellow stones, such as citrine, are also good to use in the stomach area.
Amethyst works to strengthen the circulatory system and the central nervous system. Known as a healer for the brain, the pain levels are known to decrease when placing amethyst crystals on the afflicted area. Also, a great stress reducer, amethyst works to bring a more relaxed feeling.
Turquoise works to strengthen the immune system where many viruses begin. In fact, any stone that is green is great for the ears, nose and throat. Emeralds, green fluorite and malachite can help with eye ailments and clearing sinus and ear congestion.
Anxiety can threaten every part of your body. It promotes an imbalance of vibration and produces an atmosphere for illness. Aquamarine is a very soothing stone that helps to relieve anxiety. Aquamarine is aqua in color and is derived from the Latin term ‘water of the sea’. By calming emotional troubles with aquamarine, anxiety and anger are lessened and worries dissipate.
There are many more crystals that hold metaphysical powers for healing. These are just a few of the most popular that are easy to find and beautiful to wear against your skin.
