  1. I have a friend who recently got into crystals and let me just say, that her acting career has really taken off since she did this. I was a non believer until I witnessed it with my own eyes!

  2. I want to invest in these. I used to have a lot of different stones but most of them got broke or lost. I would love to not only have them throughout my home, but to wear as well. Would geodes work the same way? I do have a bit of a weak spot for those! They look beautiful! I would imagine since it is a natural source it would be no different then a cleaned/smooth stone.

  3. Very good article. I wish more people would look into the natural healing benefits of things like this!

  4. Right now, I have one of these healing stones in my office, but I think I am going to put one in my car as well. I do not have the easiest drive home from work and find that it might be relaxing.
