Gem Quality

Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. Gemisphere’s quality categories range from 1 to 6, with 6 being the highest quality and therefore the most therapeutically potent. Note that as a gem rises in quality, its potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.

Conversion chart for visitors to our previous website:

Price per Carat ($/Ct.)

A carat is a unit of weight used to measure gemstones. In our ordering charts, the price per carat ($/Ct.) is another expression of a gemstone’s quality—i.e., higher quality gemstones naturally cost more per carat. Taken together, a necklace’s quality category and price per carat help indicate a gemstone’s quality and potency. 

Carat Weight (Carats)

Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, necklaces with higher carat weights are more potent than those with lower carat weights (Carats). If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing necklaces with somewhat smaller gems or lower carat weights. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems. 

Necklace Length 

Consider your comfort when choosing a necklace length; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. Most necklaces 23 inches (58.5 cm) or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; necklaces 24 inches (61 cm) or longer have no clasp.
