Healers throughout history have utilized the energy in gemstones to heal a variety of ailments from spiritual, emotional to even physical healing. Wearing crystal jewelry gives the wearer the energy of the stone all day.
In my tale, SOUL TAKER, Isabella Lucci uses stones to try and heal her closest friend after the ‘Soul Taker’ has attacked her. She also uses precious stones to help Garran relax, though her touch had him distracted.
Here are a few of these precious stones Isabella used in the story.
There are a variety of quartz crystals. In ancient times, people believed the stones were ice crystals that would never melt. It is a romantic stone, and also has cooling powers. It’s used in healing to amplify the energies of the other stones. The crystal is known to have a similar vibration as humans. This is why they are used for meditation.
This is a stone for new beginnings, inner growth and strength. It helps to stabilize emotions and soothes by providing calmness. The stone enhances intuition and promotes inspiration, success, good fortune in love and business. The powers of the moonstone are linked with the moon, focusing on love, fertility, good fortune, and protection. Its healing powers are directed to the digestive system. It eliminates toxins, alleviates degenerative conditions of the skin, hair, eyes, liver, and pancreas. It is also used to eliminate PMS, and for the men it helps in opening their emotional self.
Amber is a powerful chakra cleanser and healer. It vitalizes the body and gives it power to draw disease out of one’s body. It absorbs pain and negative energy and it allows the body to rebalance and heal itself. Amber can also alleviate stress. Its healing powers are focused on the throat, stomach, spleen, kidneys, bladder, liver, and gallbladder. It can alleviate joint problems, too. It is excellent in changing negative energy to positive.
The agate is one of the oldest stones recorded in history. It protects against stress and energy drains. At one time this stone was used to ward off storms. This stone also attracts strength and can be used for protection against bad dreams by placing the stone at the head of the sleeper. The agate’s healing properties is for upset stomachs. For this the stone should be placed on the solar plexus. The agate is also known to give a person inner strength, making this stone a great one to have when your faced with an important decision.
About the Book Soul Taker:

A vampire, a werewolf, and a Necromancer are a most unlikely team, but Garran, Harrison, and Isabella plan on putting a kink in the dubbed Soul Taker’s plans. It’s personal now. One of their friends has fallen victim to the Soul Taker’s charms, but to stop him from hurting anyone else, their efforts may involve raising the dead.
