"Throughout the ages, gemstones and crystals have been regarded as having special properties. Ancient civilizations used them in healing, or as talismans and amulets, kings, queens, emperors, warriors and priests used them for power and protection. . ."

 

While beauty plays an important part in the appeal of stones, a stone's energy also has an impact on us. To connect with the Earth's energy we can wear jewelry made with gemstones to draw on its powers for healing, protecting and balancing.
