Gemstones

Gemstones are not only beautiful but have a wide range of uses. Many gemstones correlate to the different signs in the zodiac, planets, anniversary dates and to the chakras. According to wikipedia chakras "  refer to the wheel-like vortices which, according to traditional Indian medicine, are believed to exist in the surface of the etheric double of man. The Chakras are said to be  force centers or whorls of energy permeating, from a point on the physical body, the layers of the subtle bodies in an ever-increasing fan-shaped formation. Rotating vortices of subtle matter they are considered the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies. Different systems posit a varying number of chakras; the most well known system in the West is that of seven chakras."

Gemstones are thought to posses many powers for protection, wisdom, luck, healing and power depending on the stone.
