There are two main ways gemstones are used on chakras -- placement on a single chakra at a time or placement on
all chakras at once. One can experiment to see what works best for them.
Chakras are the 7 main energy centers of the body according to Eastern medicine.
They are in the center of the body, starting at the base of the spine and running up to the
top of the head.
Stomach/Solar Plexus Chakra
Brow/Third Eye Chakra
To find a chakra:
Use a gemstone and circle front of body in a large circle over where a chakra should
Slowly decrease the size of circle following the energy.
With Black Onyx, you can feel where the Chakra is by where you place it on your body.
One's body will tingle where chakras are.
Other gemstones can be more subtle. The gemstone simply feels like it is being lead to
Often one simply wants to work on a single chakra. Simply place a gemstone or strand of
gemstones on a Chakra and keep them there from 3-25 minutes. I prefer using clear optical quality quartz on
chakras. However, here are the stones that others recommend on each chakra.
Root/Base Chakra: Black Onyx/Obsidian
Sex/Navel Chakra: Carnelian
Stomach/Solar Plexus Chakra: Citrine
Heart Chakra: Rose Quartz/Ruby
Throat Chakra: Indigo (translucent Sodalight)/Purple Rainbow Fluorite
Brow/Third Eye Chakra: Amethyst/Aquamarine/Lapis Lazuli/Clear Quartz
Crown Chakra: Amethyst/Clear Quartz
One can always substitute clear quartz sphere or strand of frosted quartz for any chakra.
Other people have different charts. Experiment. Find what works best for you! If a stone ever feels very
uncomfortable, I recommend removing it.
Another way to do single chakra therapy is to take a single stone and sequentially work
your way up the chakras. Ie. put malachite on your root chakra for 3-5 minutes; then on your sex chakra for
3-5 minutes, etc. This teaches you multiple things:
How a stone feels on each chakra
Which chakra it works best on (or does it feel good on all)
If the stone works well on more than one chakra
My favorite gemstone to do this with is emerald (a 2" ring of beads works GREAT). My
clients have found this very healing.
The easiest therapy is to take 7 clear quartz spheres or 7 strands of frosted quartz and
place them on all your chakras - starting at the base chakra and working your way up. Let
them stay on your chakras for 5-25 minutes. Remove the strands in the opposite order -- starting from the
crown chakra. You may wish to wear a strand of frosted quartz when done to help maintain your balance.
I have tried this therapy w/ spheres and strands of several types of gemstones. When using
other gemstones, I recommend using with spheres.
I tried this once with strands of black opal and it was very overwhelming.
Green Aventurine felt healing but didn't help nearly as much as putting it directly on an organ
that needed it.
Amethyst was very uplifting -- but it seemed to be much better on the higher chakras singly or
directly on an organ such as stomach or liver
Rose quartz felt good -- but my body wanted more rose quartz on heart chakra than on other
Rhodocrusite was too strong for me. Try it for a very very short time (15 seconds) on a single
chakra. Always follow it by something soothing/healing.
