For most purposes, Gems or crystals are the same. The effects of Crystal or Gemstone can be experienced in a variety of ways. The most effective way to add the power of crystals or correct a balance in the Chakras is thru adding natural crystals and gemstones to your everyday wardrobe so they are close to you for several hours at a time and touching your skin. (the pulse points: ears, wrists, ankles, and neckline) and thus effecting your aura and balancing the Chakras. This is much more effective than carrying stones in your purse or pocket, or placing them in your environment. For direct healing, the jewelry can be placed on the Chakra itself. You can choose one special stone each day and wear as a pendant on a chain. We can also combine gems with specific properties into “Theme” necklaces, bracelets, and anklets.
