Eye Candy: Focus on Abalone

Many people believe that gemstones and other natural materials 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. Click on any photo to learn how you can add abalone to your collection:

Abalone is a type of shell fish, not unlike mussels or clams. It is said to be especially useful for handling and calming emotional situations, and it is supposed be very soothing to the emotions. If you are going through a difficult time, you might find it helpful to wear abalone; looking at the beautiful shimmering colors just might calm your mind and refresh your spirit.

Having abalone nearby is said to increase cooperation among people who hold opposing views. If you are having problems with co-workers or family, wearing abalone might just make it easier to resolve them and find a mutually beneficial solution.

Abalone is thought to increase intuition and stimulate the imagination. Artists may find that wearing abalone helps them find their muse and get past creative blocks.

According to folklore, wearing abalone is helpful for arthritis and other joint disorders. It is also supposed to ease muscle pain, strengthen the heart, and aid in digestion.
