Chakra Gemstones: Beautiful Healing

Updated on September 23, 2013

Healing Gemstones

  • Gemstones and crystal have been considered powerful healing tools throughout history. Native American cultures used Turquoise in ceremonial rites. The Tibetan Monks make prayer beads of amber and turquoise. Hebrews used onyx as oracle stones (known as Thummim stones).
  • Gemstones absorb and store light. Light, combined with the unique properties of each stone, create a specific vibrational frequency for the stone. These gemstone frequencies are attuned to specific Chakras. By placing a gem on or near the intended Chakra, it enhances and stabilizes the energies in that area. Often people carry healing gems in pockets, purses, or wear them as jewelry. This lens will review the gemstones associated with each specific Chakra and provide resources to help you find your own gems!

      I just love looking at the gems. I live close to Sedona, AZ, where gems are a big thing, but I never really knew what chakra was. Interesting!

      I didn't know gemstones are could be actually powerful - I learned a lot from this lens. I'm tickled pink too to find that one of the stones that can benefit the root chakra is called Mahogany Obsidian :). 5 stars!

      This is a beautifully crafted and cleverly done lensography on your niche, Sharon. I like Sapphire and Turquoise gemstones but it didn't occur to me that they are associated with healing. Thanks to your lenses I am learning more about their connections to our bodies' energies. *blessed*
