When people think of using stones and crystals for healing, most likely they are picturing tumbled stones, crystal points, or shaped and polished stones such as gemstone wands. But, did you know that jewelry containing stones (precious or semi-precious) can also be used in crystal healing? Well, it sure can!
Wearing stone and crystal jewellery is an easy, convenient, and attractive way to carry healing stones with you all the time and everywhere you go. The jewellery can be of any type, style or design. For example, it can be a crystal wrapped in wire and strung on a chain; stone beads strung together as a necklace or bracelet; even faceted gemstone jewellery can be used for crystal healing! Stones that are set in gold or silver work especially well since these metals are good conductors of energy.
The stone does not need to be of any particular size and it does not need to be worn on or near any particular area of the body, regardless of what it is being used for. For example, it is often recommended that stones used to heal conditions of the heart (physical or emotional) be worn over the heart, but this is not necessary because one’s physical body is surrounded by an etheric body (an energy field which houses the chakras) that directs the stone’s healing energies to the appropriate area. Therefore, any form of jewelry can be used, including:
Jewellery pieces containing multiple kinds of stones generally do not work for healing as their different energies usually cancel each other out, and so most jewellery suitable for healing contain only one kind of stone. Jewellery pieces with multiple stones can be used for healing as long as the stones are all the same kind, for example: a ring with several rubies or a bracelet of amethyst beads.
However, jewellery with two different kinds of stones will work if one of the stones is transparent and colorless, such as clear quartz or diamond. In this instance, the clear stone will serve to amplify the healing effects of the other stone.
