Every day, we ingest mineral elements essential to our well-being. When you wear a natural stone, it triggers beneficial vibrations for our physical and mental health. The stone will stimulate our organs and our intellect.
Natural stones have different colors and each color is related to the energy centers of our body. These centers are called Chakras found in yogic science. Each precious or semi-precious stone therefore has, by its color, a specific influence for each part of our body.
Everything is energy, our body is energy, and therefore our cells react in different ways depending on the stone which itself has its own vibrations.
Lithotherapy is the study of the energetic power of stones, it is a very old science brought up to date and used by many therapists and in alternative medicine.
The virtues of the stones according to their color:

You can also wear the stone mounted on silver or gold jewelry. Like for example a silver ring with its natural stone, a pendant, earrings or a stone necklace.
