Lore of the Gem Stones

Through much of recorded history, gemstones and crystals have been used not only for their inherent decorative beauty but also for their perceived healing and spiritual properties. The energy that the stones seemed to impart to their wearers made the rare and beautiful gems precious.

Today, science recognizes the inherent powers of gemstones and crystals in such technological uses as crystals in watches, lasers, and computers and many others.

Although science has been unable to prove or disprove the more subtle influences of gem stones, such as their ability to promote physical healing in the body, or their power to help balance human emotions, many people today look to the various gemstones to aid them in recovering and maintaining their health, whether physical or mental.

Every Gem Stone has many such properties and we invite you to please take a few minutes to scroll through our Gem Stone lore pages.  The buttons at the bottom of each page will take you to the aphetically listed stones. 

You will find a photo or two of the  gemstone along with a brief description of selected properties.

We here at Earth to Body Jewelry hope you enjoy reading and learning about the fascinating properties attributed to gemstones. 

However we would like to remind you that even though gem stones and crystals have been in use as healing mediums for many, many years to heal both medical and emotional illnesses, the information in our Gem Stone Lore pages should not be understood or taken as medical advice! Please always follow the advice of medical professionals and use the purported healing properties of Gem Stones and Crystals only as a supplement.
