Every Crystal and Gemstone has a unique spiritual meaning, symbolism and healing property. Healing stones have a long history and they have been used for centuries. They are still considered sacred in many cultures or beliefs, and are widely used to make jewelry and other adornments.
The healing benefits of crystals are universally applicable in its uses and benefits. You don't have to be a healer or a mystic to learn about, wear, or use them either! They can be used to fix ailments, transmute energy vibrations, increase inner awareness, enhance meditation and aid with ceremony. They are often used as Chakra stones to relieve different physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual discomforts.
Gemstones (also called jewel, gem, precious stone, semi-precious stone, healing stone, crystal) are pieces of mineral crystal, organic materials (such as pearl), and/ or rocks (such as opal) that are mined, cut, and/ or found inside of geodes. They are available as raw crystals or polished stones.
- Polished or Tumbled Stones: Small, rounded, brightly polished pieces of rocks and minerals. These are the most common, accessible, and preferred to make jewelry with. They are made by placing rough rocks or raw crystals in a machine known as a rock tumble, which tumbles them until their edges and surfaces are smooth and polished.
- Raw Crystals: These are often large stones or crystal clusters with rough edges. These are crystals in their most natural form, barely altered from when they were found.
- Geode: A round rock which contains a hollow cavity lined with mineral or crystal matter. Most geodes contain mineral like quartz (such as clear quartz and amethyst) or agate crystals.
Most of our crystals are polished and tumbled to make jewelry, accessories, and other items.
