Chakra Gemstones - The perfect match for balance and harmony

Chakra meditation
Chakra Meditation

Ancient Hindu and Buddhist philosophy says that we all have seven sacred points within our bodies which influence our physical and mental well being. The points are called Chakras (meaning wheel or spin) and are centers of energy that begin at the base of the spine and end at the top of the head.

Each Chakra point has a name and an assigned color

Gemstones have long been recognized as having great spiritual power and have been used to rebalance or unblock a troubled Chakra since the earliest times.

Usually, (but not always) the gemstone will correspond to the color of the Chakra that needs help and is placed directly on the location of the Chakra during relaxation or meditation.

Over the centuries, certain gemstones have been observed to be especially effective and have built up a reputation for their strong influence over a particular Chakra.

Here is our guide to the best gemstone plus an alternative for each Chakra.

Size and Weight

Gems are always measured in Millimeter (mm)

Dimensions are given as;
length x width x depth,
except for round stones which are;
diameter x depth

Select gems by size, not by weight!
Gem varieties vary in density, so carat weight is not a good indication of size

Note: 1ct = 0.2g
