BESTeam Feature: Gemstones and their Healing properties

As I shop around for Gemstones, I consider the healing properties each stone possesses.  At MysticWynd you will find a selection devotes to Gemstones, with their Metaphysical properties, awesome!

MysticWynd is a little shop on owned by Karen in Arizona .  Karen wanted to create jewelry that would appeal to everyone.  Whatever your style, taste or needs, you  are sure to find a piece of jewelry that will inspire you, at MysticWynd

For those who are not familiar with the healing properties of gemstones, here is a bit of information on Gemstones as stated by By Swami Sada Shiva Tirtha, D. Sc.

"The ancient Ayurvedic researchers studied healing properties of gems, and found that different stones created different effects in the human body. The planets were seen to have corresponding colors. The color or vibration of the gems affects the human body. They absorb and reflect (like a filter) the planetary rays or vibrations. Thus, gems relate to specific energy waves. It was found that the gems associated with each planet have varying wavelengths.
The planetary vibrations are negative, while the radiation of the stones is positive. When the positive and negative vibrations are combined, they are neutralized. Just as an umbrella or sunscreen protects one from the sun, so gems protect one from the influence of the planets." As stated in 
With this in mind, when choosing a gemstone to wear consider its energy level and/or meaning.  Typical we are drawn to what we need.  So, if you are drawn to a Tiger's Eye,  you may be seeking Clarity & Focus or to apply some Discipline & practicality. 

MysticWynd  provides us with the following information regarding Tiger's Eye:

Metaphysical - clarity & focus, discipline & practicality, optimism, attainment of wealth
Healing - disorders of the eyes, throat, reproductive organs; digestive diverticular disease, spinal alignment, rapid healing of bone fractures
Astrological Association - Capricorn
Numerological - Vibrates to the number 4 (Work, Productivity)

At  MysticWynd on Etsy, you will find custom made jewelry design and hand crafted by Karen, the owner of MysticWynd.  Here are some of my favorite pieces from MysticWynd:
