How Gemstones work
Gemstones are the gifts from the earth. Composed of the same minerals that our body, and the diet that nourishes us, is made from. Gemstones are filled with energy and are powerful energy conductors. This energy can be transferred from the gemstones to the body through the electromagnetic field. The energy from the gemstones realign our own (or animal’s) energy to dissolve disease and bring about health and balance.
All natural stones have some healing power. Hundreds of gemstones and crystals, along with their sub-types, are available. The qualities of the gemstones are many and varied (colors, shapes, inclusions, and frequencies) each carrying different vibrations and influences on the body. They increase consciousness, improve lives, decrease stress, and bring healing energies.

Gemstones are powerful healing tools used to heal holistically, treating the whole person – on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.
