Stone of  the month ...

Donna Mills, owner of Jewels and Gems introduces us to the qualities of the gemstone, Smokey Quarz,

The information comes from the scientifically conducted trials of German stone specialist Michael Gienger.

Smokey Quarz could be the gemstone equivalent of valium, without the side-effects ! It increases our tolerance to stress due to it's deeply relaxing influence, dissolving mental, emotional and physical tension. In the long-term, it takes away our tendency towards being overwhelmed and makes us more resistant to stress factors. It helps us cope more easily with hard times and be able to exert great effort to do the work which has to be done in such times.

It helps us bear sorrow, encouraging the separation of feelings and thoughts, stimulating practical thinking and concentration.

It is pain alleviating, fortifies the nerves, dissolves cramps and tension in the body, and is especially helpful with back problems, tense shoulders and headaches. It also protects us against the effects of radiation and helps alleviate the damage caused by radiation.

Smokey Quarz should be worn as a chain or pendant for longer periods of time to give strength. In situations of stress, two polished or rough crystals held in each hand will help. In order to dissolve pain, lay it directly on the painful area of the body. And remember to think of it, if your pet has been frightened or injured. Gemstones can help animals just as well as people.
