       LITHOTHERAPY
lithotherapy gemstones


Lithotherapy is the fancy word for an ancient healing tool: rocks
and much like Flower Medicine,  Rock Medicine is also an energetic therapy --
gemstones can be thought of as flowers' big brothers for processing emotions ... 
they are the 'big guns' --

Not many realize that original purpose of jewelry was to heal 
by means of the various electrical wavelengths in minerals (gemstones) -
This Yale paper discusses this gemstone electrical conductivity -
it is this energy which affects/influences/reacts to the energy of your body -
that same energy was recently harnessed to power a unicycle,
according to this article by Britain's conservative Daily Mail
