About Stones

Stones and crystals have specific vibrations and carry healing properties. To hold a stone and feel it warm in your hands can bring a feeling of calm or courage or peace.  It would be impossible to detail the properties of all stones here or explain how two or three may complement each another.

The following are brief highlights of some of the stones I work with at In Balance Jewelry.  There are more! I would be happy to discuss stones and crystals with you.
