Gemstone Properties

Gemstones, in combination with hematite and magnetics, provide a powerful

combination of properties that can be utilized along with with traditional medicine

to provide a holistic approach to healing.

The following web based resources are listed by color to provide insight

into the metaphysical and healing properties of gemstones.



Gemstones have an important role in preventing disease and keeping you healthy.

If you do become ill, they are a gentle but effective healing tool. 

  • Healing can be defined as bringing the body, emotions, mind and spirit back into harmony. 

  • It does not necessarily imply a cure, although it frequently improves conditions. 

Gemstone healing is a gentle and non-invasive process that creates balance on all levels. 

  • It can provide support to the body's own internal healing systems. 

  • Despite gemstones being used for this purpose for thousands of years, exactly how they do this is still something of a mystery. 

  • Most gemstones can be placed over clothing and left in place for 20 minutes or so, although many are beneficial when placed directly on the skin.  They can also be taped in place, worn for much longer periods for healing or prevention, they can be kept in a pocket, or placed around your bed or room.

MAGNETS AND MAGNETIC THERAPY: for pain relief and healing dates as far back as the ancient Egyptian and Chinese healers in 200 BC.  The health benefits that have been reported include:  anti-inflammatory activity, chronic pain relief, faster healing from injury or surgery, improved blood circulation, improved tissue alkalization, increased energy and well-being, increased tissue oxygenation, increased levels of cellular oxygen, more restful sleep, pain relief and pain management, reduction of swelling, and stress relief.

but one that is a part of a holistic healing approach.
