Precious vs. Semi-precious Gemstones
Natural vs. Lab-created Crystals
Natural crystals are created in and mined from the earth. However, sometimes the natural stone’s color and/or clarity are enhanced through a treatment process, such as heat. There are gemstones being created in laboratories which look like natural stone. Opalite, diamonds, rubies and other crystals are created using the same composition as natural stones to make gemstones more affordable. Neither of these gemstone types should be confused with imitation gemstones. These crystals are made using dyes, paint, foil, glass and various other materials. For example, cubic zirconia is an imitation gemstone.
Balancing Your Chakras with Crystals
Do you feel your energy and/or body is out of balance? Using gemstones that correspond to each chakra can help re-align your energy and body.
Root – Bloodstone, Hematite or Red Jasper
Sacral – Carnelian, Moonstone or Amber
Solar Plexus – Citrine, Yellow Tiger’s Eye or Calcite
Heart – Rose Quartz, Jade or Rhodochrosite
Throat – Kyanite, Turquoise or Lapis Lazuli
Third Eye – Amethyst, Lepidolite or Fluorite
Crown – Clear Quartz, Selenite or Diamond
Note: Different sources name different gemstones, but the ones listed above are the most common.
To balance a chakra, lay on your back. Place the crystal on or near its corresponding chakra. Close your eyes and visualize your energy flowing freely through that chakra for 7 to 15 minutes. You can balance several chakras by placing a gemstone on each chakra you need to balance.
These crystals can also be placed near you as you sleep, wearing them as jewelry or carrying them with you. The closer the gemstone is to its corresponding chakra the faster the gemstone balances that chakra
Smoky Quartz – grounds the chakras from the crown to the root
Malachite – opens and cleanses all the chakras
Tourmaline – cleanses and protects all the chakras
Kyanite – aligns all the chakras to each other
Note: Before and after the chakra balancing, the crystals you used should be cleansed with salt water, placing in the sunlight or putting the gemstones with Citrine or Kyanite.
