Eye Candy: Focus on Unakite and Aventurine

Jewelry does a lot for us; it calls attention to areas we want to accentuate; when received as a gift, wearing it reminds us that we are loved; and, finally, wearing jewelry makes us feel attractive and well-dressed. But what if your jewelry could actually help you get through your day and bring positive benefits to your life? Many people believe that gemstones have metaphysical, healing and even magical properties. Whether or not you actually believe in these properties of gemstones, a little extra help just might be what you want some days.

Unakite is said to promote balance and emotional stability. It is supposed to be a grounding stone, wear Unakite to transform negative emotions into positive ones. Unakite is also supposed to be a stone of visions; it is thought to help provide a gentle release of blockages that have been inhibiting your growth. It is also believed to absorb the "electromagnetic smog" given off by computers, monitors and television sets,  so wearing Unakite just might help you breathe easier!
