EARTH series *05: Indian Agate + Lapis Yoga Mala Bead 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.
Drawing on the Earth tones - from brown to green to blue - this double strand bracelet helps you connect to the world around you.
MANTRA: I draw good fortune from the Earth's elements around me.

India Agate is a great aid for meditation & a powerful healing stone. Indian agate gives physical strength & emotional security. It is also a good protection stone.
India Agate Gemstone and its multiple qualities were known to the ancient sages, the scriptures written by them were either destroyed or buried with them. As a custom, today’s rishis, sadhus and fakirs (Sages) opt to wear the agate stone without knowing about all of its hidden qualities.
The naturally forming Indian Agate Gemstone breaks away from its place of origin and flows through the streams emerging out of the mountains. When these stones reach a particular spot in the river rolling in the waters, on Purnamashi (full moon) day at a certain time they come in contact with the full moon energy. Apart from absorbing its lunar energies, it also takes on different colors and watermarks. They are then ripe with the human healing energies and powers to banish and ward of bad luck, evil spells and misfortune, in every sphere of life, that one may have been carrying over his or her shoulders for quite a while.
Ancient lore has it that, in particular, Indian Agate gemstone has a mysterious influence on a particular wearer. It is learnt from Upanniyas and Puranas (Ancient Hindu Scriptures) that beggars turned kings after using the particular and correct Indian Agate gemstone advised by the Sadhus (sages) of the time.
