Healing Properties of Gemstones -Sand N Stones

Posted by Michele Buckler

Recently, I was asked why I do not really talk about or post on my website or social media about the healing properties of gemstones.

Michele’s Healing Properties Beliefs’

Most of my life I usually had stone or mineral in my pocket. One day my father, who has a very concreate scientific mind, asked me why I always had a stone in my pocket. I always replied, “that it makes me feel better.” He asked me how it made me feel better?  Knowing that I needed to come up with a very scientific answer I explained…

Rock are minerals, our bodies are made up of minerals. Dad always taught me that when we get sick it is because our body is lacking a type of mineral. Most of our medications that we take daily are minerals.  Our largest organ of the body is our skin. So laying a mineral on top of our skin, our body absorbs small amounts of that mineral into our body.

He asked how do I know which stone I need. I told him, that there are several books written on this subject, but I use them as very loose guidelines. I really depend on whatever stone I am drawn to that day.

Here is a list of a few books that I use as a very loose guideline for Healing Properties. What I have found is that some of these books contradict each other, they are reporting on what experiences they have found with a particular stone.

  • Crystalline Communion 2000 by Collen Marquist and Jack Frasl ISBN 0-9620201-4-1
  • The Book Of Stones by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian ISBN 0-9621910-3-5
  • Love is in the Earth by Melody (Any of her books are good) ISBN 0-9628190-3-4

Today, I am enjoying simpler things, like spending time with my love ones, wire wrapping gemstones and sea glass, leading Wellness Laughter Yoga classes in Milford and Lewes, and taking pictures of the world around me. Most of my "spare" time is walking the beaches of Delmarva picking up Sea Glass, Sea Pottery, Delaware Bay Diamonds, Beach Stones, and Shells. I have a shop, Sand N Stones, in Lewes, Delaware where I sell my wire wrapped jewelry, and my photographs, along with Delaware and Nature gifts. When I think of Delaware, I think of the history that this wonderful state offers and the many State Parks where I spend countless hours walking and photographing my surroundings.
