Yellow Sapphire - Feel Sun-Energized Without Sun-Exposure

Feel Sun-Energized Without Sun-Exposure

When Yellow Sapphire was announced as our Gem of the Week, our Customer Service Manager Michelle's face lit up and she became very excited, as this powerful carrier of the Yellow Ray is one of her favorite gemstones to work with. She often wears two Yellow Sapphire necklaces at a time! She describes her experience with Yellow Sapphire as being like a day at the beach when you're stuck at home.

Seasonal Allergies? Blood Tonic to the Rescue

My wife has been suffering from clogged sinuses, had almost developed a hay fever, and was drained of energy. I knew this would be a perfect time to introduce her to the new Blood Tonic necklace.

Blood Mysteries and Science

Blood Mysteries and Science

The power in our blood has been described and invoked in ancient societies, in religion, in culture, in poetry, and in art.  Over 400 years ago modern researchers began to study blood in what would become the beginnings of our scientific westernized understanding.

What makes gemstone healing?

What makes gemstone healing?

Since earliest times, human beings have looked to the Earth for healing tools. Traditional Chinese Medicine has long used herbs and other plants to restore balance and qi (or energy) to certain aspects of the mind and body. Many diets and detox systems use plants and other gifts from nature, such as water, clays, and medicinal foods, to keep bodies functioning at their best.
