Though science may explain the chemical structures of stones, it is as yet, unable to fully explain their power. Sometimes, as one author says, it is a matter of a greater consciousness or perspective, and sometimes acceptance of their power through individual experience. There are certain basic laws of the universe that are to be utilized, recognized and respected. The use of gems for many purposes—one of them being healing—have been chronicled since ancient times, in various cultures of the world, and therefore, their contribution to healing needs to be explored.

* AMETHYST - Help you let go of attachments around
wealth and power and open to the truer meanings of money as energy. In
this newfound wisdom, you can learn the secrets of giving and
When I hold these gems during meditation and focus on their respective qualities my meditations are enriched along those topical lines.
