Learn About Gemstones A-G

For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have utilized the power of gemstones to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages thus facilitating the free flow of energy throughout the body. At a cellular level the human body and quartz crystal are both made up of the mineral silicon dioxide. This is why we are naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. When gemstones are placed on the body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the stone to the individual who embraces its energy. According to the law of physics, thought directs energy and energy follows thought. Each energy piece is a vehicle to help the thoughts of our consciousness connect with our body.  SoulConnection Spirit Beads are intended to balance the body through the healing properties of gemstones and crystals.
