Frequently Asked Questions
Therapeutic Gemstones FAQ
In herbal medicine, the healing compounds of a plant are extracted and the fibrous, nonessential portion is left behind. Likewise, when a crystal is cut into a sphere or rondel, the purest form of that crystal is isolated. Therapeutic gemstone spheres are the true essence of the crystal.
The drill hole in the sphere allows a gem’s energies to radiate in all directions. It represents the torus-shaped magnetic field that surrounds the heart, body, and the Earth. As the basis for Gemstone Therapy, the sphere form lends a great deal of flexibility, precision, and sophistication to the healing modality.
What about quality?
Our healing gemstone formulas are comprised of the finest therapeutic-quality gemstones. All are authentic, natural gemstones, and to our knowledge are untreated unless specified. We inspect every single bead that goes into our gemstone formulas, “high-grading” them to make sure that you get the very best.
Why don’t you offer single gemstone necklaces?
Every gemstone has a symbiotic partner that, when strung with it, can catalyze, support, or strengthen it. The difference between gemstone formulas strung with their partners and those strung by themselves is extraordinary. Not only are symbiotic necklaces more beautiful and feel better energetically, they also work more effectively and efficiently. A primary gem and its symbiotic encourage healthy relationships and can help balance the forces of yin and yang throughout the body and being.
Why do all of your necklaces have clasps?
Clasps allow necklaces to breathe. When you open a clasp, the gems release a significant amount of unwanted energies they collected during use. With a clasp, you can arrange the necklace in a spiral during storage so that the gems can regenerate their energies. In addition, clasps make it possible to wrap gems around a therapy wand to apply in the aura, or to lay them across your body for an easy and restful self-therapy.
Why nylon thread?
Nylon is strong, doesn’t fray or stretch like other threads, and is made of a simple string of molecules. Nylon has a negligible energetic effect on a therapeutic necklace.
What do the sprays do?
GEMFormulas’ aura sprays are designed to provide healing gemstone energies to your aura. The aura is the energy field that surrounds your body as well as each individual cell. It is particularly receptive to gemstone energies. Thus, the GEMFormulas’ aura sprays are an effective way to provide the benefits of gemstones to your entire being.
How are the aura sprays made?
GEMFormulas’ aura sprays are made from therapeutic gemstones configured in certain patterns to provide specific healing benefits. The configuration is designed using principles of Gemstone Therapy, sacred geometry and numerology, and is illustrated on each bottle label. You can also view each of the aura spray configurations, or “gemandalas” (gemstone mandalas), here.
We arrange the gemandala needed for each aura spray on a special plate. This plate is then run through a device that Isabelle Morton invented in 2009, called a Gemstone Energy Field Imprinting device (or GEFI). This device transfers, in whole, the energy field of the gemstone configuration into organic grape alcohol. We then add water to make a product that contains 20% alcohol, and package it into 2-oz and 4-oz bottles.
How do I use aura sprays?
Hold the bottle above your head and spray upward. Let the mist rain down upon you. Spray toward your body at areas of need, then hold the bottle at these areas and spray away from them, directly into your aura. You can also spray toward and away from chakras. Visit our video library to view instructional videos on using sprays.
What about Anklets?
Yes, bracelets can be worn as anklets using an extender to lengthen them. These will have the same benefits for your legs as they do your arms. Unwanted energies are more likely to pool in your legs than in your arms, especially as you age or neglect exercise. Wearing an anklet can help mobilize these energies. For this reason, a healing gemstone anklet should be worn only for a few minutes at a time at first. Gradually increase the amount of time you wear it. Acupuncture meridians that cross the ankles are the: kidney, spleen, liver, stomach, gall bladder, and bladder. Organs and tissues associated with these meridians can be directly vitalized and supported by wearing a therapeutic gemstone anklet.
For best results, do I need to wear the same bracelet on each wrist at the same time?
No. In fact it’s better that you only wear the bracelet on one wrist. This helps to keep the energy flowing around your body. However you can wear a different bracelet on each wrist.
Can I wear therapeutic necklaces and bracelets together?
How many necklace, bracelets, and anklets can I wear at the same time?
This is very much an individual thing. When you combine necklaces, bracelets, and anklets you are making a gemstone formula for yourself that can uniquely satisfy your energetic requirements in the moment. Your body may be more comfortable wearing only a few kinds of necklaces and bracelets during the day. However, during Gemstone Therapy self-therapy session, when you are addressing a specific intention, arrange as many necklaces and bracelets on and around yourself that your body calls in.
Can wearing a bracelet on one arm or the other help with issues involving the left or right sides of the brain?
Yes. The left side of the brain operates the right side of the body, and vice versa. So bracelets worn consistently on the right wrist would tonify the left side of the brain, and vice versa.
Can Gemstone Therapy Bracelets be used as pet collars?
Yes, they can be worn in addition to your pet’s primary collar.
