I have been thinking about importing some gemstones for a while now. If I do this, these stones would be arranged in a pattern with the Amber pieces so the Amber will still be beneficial for healing purposes while getting a dose of the gemstones at the same time. The stones would only replace a small fraction of the Amber pieces on a necklace.
The reason why I have been indecisive about these gemstones is because the gemstones are “cold”. As we know, Amber is warm when it rests against the skin, whereas gemstones will remain cold. I’m unsure how this warm-cold combination would feel against the skin and how the Amber’s succinic acid would activate as the jewelry shifts against the skin to the adjacent “cold” spot where the gemstones previously rested. So, I figured I will leave this decision up to my customers. Let me know what you think in the poll at the bottom of this post. Here are the available options:
African Jade (+ Green Amber)
This is a GREEN gemstone. African Jade is the stone of calm, balancing nerves and soothing the cardiac rhythm.
