OVERCOMING OBSTACLES: Snow Quartz | Dharma Wheel | Yoga Chakra Reiki Bracelet
Crystals were created as the earth formed and they have continued to metamorphose as the planet itself has changed. They are the earth's DNA, a chemical imprint for evolution. They are miniature storehouses containing the records of the development of the earth over millions of years, and bearing the indelible memory of the powerful forces that shaped it. Their crystalline structure can absorb, conserve, focus and emit energy, especially on the electromagnetic waveband.
Crystals make excellent jewelry for both men and women. Wearing gems used to be a royal or priestly prerogative. The high priest of Judaism wore a breastplate set with precious stones. It was much more than a badge of office; it conveyed power to the wearer. As far back as the Stone Age, men and women wore crystal jewelry and talismen. They had a protective as well as decorative function, guarding their wearer from harm.
Crystals have been used to heal and bring balance, working through resonance and vibration. Crystals are said to heal holistically - that is to say, they work on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of being. They realign subtle energies that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body and activating linkage points to the chakras that regulate the body's vibrational stasis. Chakra stone therapy has been shown to help cancer patients.
The gemstone property information here is to use as you see fit, but is not to take the place of professional medical care. Crystals, Gemstones and Talismen can negate, protect, encourage, strengthen, and balance and promote healing and positivity. Their effects can be extraordinary, but use in addition to medical advice, and not as a substitute for proper care.

The Dharma Wheel symbolizes the cycle of life and rebirth.
The dharma wheel, or dharmachakra in Sanskrit, is one of the oldest symbols of Buddhism. Around the globe it is used to represent Buddhism in the same way that a cross represents Christianity or a Star of David represents Judaism. It is also one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols of Buddhism.
Buddhism adopted the wheel as the main symbol of the cakravartin "wheel-turner", the ideal king or "universal monarch", symbolizing the ability to cut through all obstacles and illusions.
A dharma wheel has three basic parts -- the hub, the rim, and the spokes. Over the centuries various teachers and traditions have proposed diverse meanings for these parts, and explaining all of them possibly would take a book. Here are some common understandings of the wheel's symbolism:
- The circle, the round shape of the wheel, represents the perfection of the dharma, the Buddha's teachings.
- The rim of the wheel represents meditative concentration and mindfulness, which hold practice together.
- The hub represents moral discipline.
The wheel often has spokes protruding beyond the wheel, which we might imagine are spikes, although usually they don't look very sharp. The spikes represent various penetrating insights.
Snow Quartz has a wonderfully smooth vibration. Also called Milky Quartz and Quartzite, Snow Quartz is a delicate, opaque white form of Quartz and is found in Brazil, US, and Mexico.
Snow Quartz has a gentler, more soothing vibrational quality than Clear Quartz. It reminds us to look at the world through the innocent eyes of a child and remember that there is still wonder in the world.
Native Americans attributed the snowy white quartz to the Snow Moon (the full moon of January and February) and the North Wind. Wear Snow Quartz during times of chaos.
The female version of Clear Quartz, Snow Quartz provides peaceful energies in a whirlwind environment. It offers clarity of mind and aides in studying, as well as a reminder to finish that paperwork.
Often found in gold mines, Snow Quartz is used for prosperity and luck.
