Life force in stones, gemstone healing

Gemstones contain life force and they transform it into gem stone energy. In gemstones, life force is continually drawn in to the center. As it moves toward the center, the life force becomes more and more concentrated. This concentration fuels the transformation of life force into gem stone energy and causes the gem’s energy to be unleashed with potential healing powers to uplift and heal the whole person.

The gemstones listed below are the ones most used in the jewelry on this site. They were selected more to match the piece than for the particular healing property they posses. Gemstone healing is an interesting subject and there is a lot of information available. For your convenience there is a book list below. Refresh the page to see additional books.

Magnesite - The mineral magnesite (magnesium carbonate) has the same crystal structure as calcite (calcium carbonate). It typically forms when magnesium-rich rocks are exposed to carbonate solutions. Magnesite is typically white, but ranges from colorless to gray or tan. Some refer to it as "chalk turquoise" or "white turquoise," but magnesite is not related to turquoise.

For hundreds of years, many Native Americans, including the Pomo people of California, crafted magnesite into beads used as jewelry and currency. Magnesite beads were considered quite valuable and were traded individually, instead of by the strand like most money beads.

Magnesite is said to assist in creative visualization, help bring peace in meditation and stimulate passion. It is also believed to help strengthen the bones and teeth, and to help lessen the symptoms of PMS. Magnesite is found around the world, including much of Europe, Africa, Brazil, China, Korea and the U.S.A.

Snow Quartz - looks pure and fresh as snow. It's cloudy, opaque look comes from microscopic inclusions that were incased in the crystal when it first began growing.

Tigerskin Jasper - a tawny golden tigerskin color, sometimes called hornstone, actually means "spotted stone" in Greek. But in tigerskin ''jasper'', those "spots" (from iron oxide) appear as pencil-thin streaks of brown in the dark golden matrix. I personally think these stones look like petrified wood. They are so interesting to look at and each so different.

Metaphysical Properties of Tigerskin Jasper are about experiencing life right now like the tiger - in the moment, not thinking about or analyzing things in the future. Tigerskin ''jasper'' takes us out of our heads and puts us back into our bodies and the animal colors intensify those feelings.
