Top Three Healing Stones and Crystals Used in Gem Therapy...

Various healing stones and crystals are used in gem therapy. Some are used in pendulums while others are passed over the body for healing in the form of wands. Using the vibrations of stones is related to the seven chakras or energy points of the body. These energy points can become sluggish as the result of trauma of negative thoughts. Therefore, healing stones and crystals are used to open up chakras and re-energize and balance the system. Healing stones and crystals are used over such chakra body areas as the belly, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye (related to psychic abilities) and crown. While the use of healing stones and crystals are not directed specifically, say, to the belly, they are used to relieve and cure conditions originating or related to the area. Libyan Desert Glass One of the top three healing stones used for this purpose is an ancient rock known as Libyan Desert glass. Also referred to as golden cosmic glass, this stone is a fusion of Quartz grains – formed when a large asteroid hit the eastern part of Egypt around 30 million years ago. The pieces of resulting natural glass contain various inclusions in the vesicles as well as high-pressure crystals made of quartz. These quartz crystals are known as Cristobalite and Tridymite. Because they are both ancient and cosmic, the healing stones and crystals of Libyan glass are said to offer one of the highest vibrations of light that the body can receive. Libyan Desert glass is therefore said to enhance a person’s mental acuity and self-confidence while aligning the energy points of the body. The nervous system is also balanced out when Libyan glass is used for gem therapy. Fluorite Another one of the top healing crystals is...

Choosing Your Countertops In Minneapolis...

Countertop is something of an odd word that we all seem to know the meaning of. Speak to anyone in (say) Minneapolis about countertops for Minneapolis and their minds will automatically turn to their kitchens and the flat surfaces at around waist level on which they store things and also prepare meals. Nearly all modern kitchens are designed to accommodate as many countertops as available space permits. Thinking a little deeper, they may also apply countertop to the flat, horizontal surfaces around the washbasin in their bathrooms or even the horizontal surface of the bedroom vanity. All these domestic applications of countertops in Minneapolis share a visual resemblance to older style bar counters or the counter over which we used to be served in shops prior to supermarket style shopping with check out desks. None of which have anything to do with things like counterclockwise, counterculture or counter-insurgency. What To Use For Domestic Worktop Surfaces Sticking with the Minneapolis example; countertops in Minneapolis kitchens need to be hard wearing, water and stain resistant and easy to clean. Usually, the work surface is positioned above a cupboard or similar construction to provide a usable surface at around waist level. Various “topping” materials have been used over the years; ranging from hard wood through plastic laminates and metal sheeting to ceramic tiles; each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Moreover, since most of us these days tend to do more than just cook in our kitchens; we desire the kitchen to be both practical and attractive in appearance. The functionality of using stone for kitchen countertops in Minneapolis should be self evident but, rough hewn rock surfaces do lack beauty in most people’s eyes. However, the swirls, flecks and multiple colors found in certain natural rock...
