Aquamarine is the stone that will help you be in touch with your spiritual being. This stone is used in deep meditations. It has been called "Water of the Sea", because of its color. Aquamarine is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness.
White Jade is a calming, grounding Nephrite jade that also protects the wearer from negative energies. It brings peace, harmony and luck.
Turquoise has been used as a purification stone. It dispels negative energy and clears electromagnetic smog. This gemstone also provides protection against environmental pollutants. It balances and aligns all the chakras, attuning the physical body to the spiritual.
Mala Prayer Beads are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This sādhanā (practice) is known in Sanskrit as japa. Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads.
